MANSFIELD: “I’m No Monster”

Detail from Jan Van Eyck’s “The Last Judgment”

Psychologists posit that the human brain will not allow anyone — not even Adolph Hitler, Pol Pot, Idi Amin, Ivan the Terrible, or yes, even Jeffery Epstein — to view themselves as a monster. They are, at least in their own minds, simply misunderstood. Give them the opportunity and they will attempt to explain it all away, no matter how evil or foul the deeds they stand accused — and often convicted — of committing. The fallback position in some cases is, “The Devil made me do it.”

However, in virtually all cases of criminal sexual impropriety, no such excuse is proffered because the perpetrators simply do not believe themselves to be guilty, no matter what witnesses say or a jury determines. In their minds, the law which they stand accused of breaking is simply wrong — it’s not them.

Take ex-NFL player and now ex-Bedford High teacher and football coach Sean Williams. He was sentenced to six years in prison the other day by Judge Joan Synenberg, who should have added a few more years for his dissembling in open court.

When the judge asked the creep if he had given the underage girl a pair of Victoria’s Secret panties as a gift, he responded by saying there was never a transaction “from my hand to her hand.” Oh, so I guess he laid the panties on the bed in the hotel room instead of putting them in her hand, and then he asked her to put them on. Well, that makes a world of difference then, doesn’t it?

As for the oral sex he was accused of having with the girl in a closet in his classroom, his response was “no.” It took a number of follow-up questions from the judge before Williams could be pinned down and finally admits that indeed, he did have oral sex with the girl in his classroom, just not in a closet. Again he should have had a few more years tacked onto his sentence for trying to be clever.

It’s my firm belief that after serving the six-year sentence Williams will exit prison the same man he was when he went in. Regardless of the mental health or sexual predator counseling he receives while incarcerated, he will still firmly believe in his twisted little mind there is nothing wrong with him or wrong with having sex with an underage female, just as long as she had entered puberty and is menstruating, even if said child is not yet in their teens. And the same thing applies to Jeffery Epstein and the 28 guys that were busted in the “Triple Play” sting (see the previous article.)

Personally, I don’t believe they can willingly change or be changed by counseling. They will go to their graves sexually fascinated by and desirous of underage girls — and in many cases, boys. What society should do is acknowledge that while these predators can’t control their desires, we have to ensure they understand that they must control their actions. They can lust all they want, but if they act on those lustful desires they’re at risk of being incarcerated until they no longer pose a danger — and that could mean until they are 75 or 80 years old.

For these types of twisted men, having a sexual relationship with an adult female is too frightening. An adult woman is capable of making decisions on many aspects of the sex act, from penis size to tenderness and length of foreplay, to staying power once the actual action begins. What if they underperform in the sack and the woman says, “Since you can’t seem to be able to cut the mustard, you’re at least going to have to let me teach you how to properly lick the jar.”
