Zuzanna Zommer was 14 when she had her innocence and her life cruelly and savagely taken from her. I cannot even imagine what fear, terror and pain this poor girl must have gone through whilst being sexually assaulted and then bleeding to death after having her throat cut. I can however, imagine how it could have been avoided.
Before Michael Clark assaulted and murdered Zuzanna he was a model citizen, he’d never been in trouble before and his actions that day were completely out of character….of course he wasn’t, he was a career pervert who had numerous convictions.
Michael Clark served time for raping a woman he met in a nightclub in 1991. Not content with raping her, he subjected her to a serious sexual assault involving a banana. For some reason our justice system believed it could rehabilitate him and despite the fact that the depraved bastard was still a danger to ordinary members of society, he was released.
Soon after his release he was giving in to his debauched urges once again, this time attacking a woman who only managed to escape during his assault by smashing a window. He went to prison once again for indecent assault and affray.
Not serving much in the way of a sentence he was out again by 2003 and was convicted of attacking a prostitute.
Even to the most casual of observers, it is clear where Clark is heading with his vile behaviour, murder. This wasn’t some spur of the moment murder either, he’d been leading up to this for some time, engaging the family in conversation, inviting himself into their home and befriending them.
He meticulously planned the murder and more importantly the aftermath. After committing his evil crime he went home, changed and headed to the Post Office to be caught on CCTV and therefore gain an alibi. He also went to Blackpool, the man is so sick he celebrated the murder by having a day out at a theme park.
Fortunately, and in spite of his planning, he was caught as he just wasn’t very bright. He still had both of the murder weapons (clearly worried about being overpowered by a 14 year old girl he’d taken two knives – just to be sure) in his possession, and still covered in Zuzanna’s blood. Blood stained clothes were also found in his house and he was wearing trainers stained with Zuzanna’s blood.
You don’t have to be Sherlock Holmes to know that this man is as guilty as they come. The only real question about this case is why wasn’t something done about this pervert earlier?
He had committed four serious crimes in twelve years, yet each time appeared to barely serve his sentence and was given parole, seemingly without difficulty.
If the danger that this deviant posed, and it was very clear that he was a danger, was recognised earlier and we had a justice system that protected innocent people, he would have been kept in prison indefinitely and a little girl would be leading a normal carefree life, as someone her age should be.
Instead we have a justice system that proves to be nothing but a minor inconvenience to the degenerates that it is meant to protect innocent people from. Each year it costs the taxpayer more and more to pamper and pander to these criminals in a pathetic attempt to understand and rehabilitate them, all whilst hardworking innocent people have their well being or their lives stolen from them.
Had someone, back in 2003, led Michael Clark out to the court yard and quietly strangled him, I am sure that no one would have shed a tear, but a young Polish girl would now be worrying about trivial things such as homework and laughing with her friends.
