THE BAD PENNY
Like a bad penny or unwelcome nightmare the specter of mass murderer George Banks crawls out from under the slime every now and then. Chicken George was back in Luzerne County Court this week for a competency hearing. Judge Joseph Augello will rule whether or not Banks is mentally competent to be executed. Mrs. LuLac and I recently celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary. Banks slaughtered 13 people in September of 1982 a few months after our wedding. 28 years. Millions of dollars has been spent on the care and upkeep of "Chicken George." The children he killed would now be roughly in their early 30s. Imagine the contributions they might have made to our society. Of course we’ll never know because he killed them all. Imagine the good that might have been done with the money spent to care and feed and coddle “Chicken George”. The social workers, mental health people and do gooders all “tut tut” about how a life is sacred and we can’t kill someone who today doesn’t understand what he did. I think “Chicken George” just doesn’t want to face the music. He might not know what he did back then today but 28 years ago he shot defenseless little kids dead at point blank range. The late Ray McGarry was a very prominent United Way volunteer back then and when I was a staff person there he served on one of the committees I staffed. As a Jenkins Township Law Enforcement official McGarry described the scene at Heather Highlands as “carnage”. It is time for Banks to pay for that “carnage’. He was competent enough to drive to two locations and methodically kill back then. The bill on this crime is way overdue. Pay up "Chicken George". A little powerless without your guns huh?
