I checked my email a few days ago to find a comment waiting for me that I hadn’t expected.
You may remember I wrote about Howard Raff, the man who killed Virginia Larkin because she was trying to bankrupt him using the child support system. To recap:
Raff said in a videotaped confession that he drove from Arizona to California to kill Larkin. He described walking into the Ukiah law office where she worked in November of last year, shooting her in the head, then turning himself in at the courthouse.
He told jurors the killing was justified because Larkin was trying to bankrupt him. After dodging the court-ordered $200-per-month payments for 22 years, the debt had grown to $85,500 with interest.
“It is incomprehensible to the court how a decision to kill can be motivated by court-ordered child support,” Judge Ronald Brown said at the sentencing.
Now, I’ll just say this – murder is a bad bad thing. What Raff did was not right. However, what the system does to men is not right either. I’m not saying two wrongs make a right – hell, Raff didn’t even target the system that enforced Virginia Larkin’s wishes!
Moving on. Well, apparently Larkin had a grand-daughter, and that little angel paid me a visit! Here’s the comment:

What can I say, I bet her grammie was as classy as her! You know what, Amanda, it may just be that Howard Raff was every bit the cruel psychotic son of a bitch you say he was. But I know American women. You just hate men with every fiber of your being. Truth certainly can take a back seat to misandry and it does, every day. Now, there are certainly bad men. Just like there are bad women. You can certainly convince me that Raff was one of those. But I’ve seen countless men’s stories who are just like Raff’s, who just suck it up with no end in sight except death, and watching her get fat with his money. And let me tell you, the ongoing, bureaucrat-stamped theft of a man’s hard earned money by his ex is every bit as soul destroying as rape.
You know what, if grammie was trying to bankrupt him – years, no — decades after her own daughter had grown up and had had children of her own (that’s you, if you’re keeping count), I bet a love and appreciation of men was not on the menu for you growing up. Tell us about yourself — are you yourself the product of a broken home? You’re 23 if I’m not mistaken. Prime age for the slut generation. How many cocks have you had? In the last week? Try not to suck any dick while you’re posting a comment, hon!
I take a woman’s word about a man with a hefty pinch of the proverbial. And that’s an understatement. Women lie. They lie all the fucking time, especially rejoicing in telling lies that ruin men’s lives. All you females think about when you look at a man are how big his wallet is, or how much of an asshole he is. Whatever gives you the most tingles, right? Take care, hon.
