What utter, utter, utter bullshit. I’m sorry, Mr-daughter-raping-imprison-your-family-in-a-dungeon-Fritzl, YOU ARE A MONSTER And that doesn’t change because you bought your daughter flowers every so often. You were not saving your daughter from “breaking the rules” and running away (which she was probably doing because of your abuse, anyway). For selfish reasons, you made a conscious decision to ignore your daughter’s rights and welfare as a human being. For selfish reasons, you made a conscious choice to kidnap Elizabeth, to imprison her, to rape her repeatedly, to have children with her, to take some of those children away from her and to doom some of those children never to see the sun. Don’t try and make it out that you are a good and kindly man with your daughter’s best interests at heart. No. Just don’t. YOU ARE A BEAST.
And, above all, you do not get to whine about how you are portrayed in the media.
