Killer Adoptee

If they knew so well he was withdrawn, why did no one do something about that before hand?

ALLEGED CONNECTICUT KILLER ADOPTED AS BABY

By GINGER ADAMS OTIS

July 26, 2007 -- The parolee charged in the brutal Connecticut home invasion and arson that killed a doctor's wife and two daughters was adopted as an infant by a wealthy family and remained "distant" throughout his childhood and into his troubled teen years, The Post has learned.

Joshua Komisarjevsky, 26, was born to teenage parents who gave him up at birth, and ended up in the arms of Ben and Jude Komisarjevsky, born-again Christians whose lineage includes a prominent theater director and dancer and a CEO of p.r. giant Burson-Marsteller, said a source close to the family.

"Everybody in the family tried as hard as they could to make him feel welcomed, but he was very distant," the source said.

"They had many sleepless nights and tried very hard to figure out what was going wrong."

Joshua began his criminal career with burglary at the age of 14, and his parents stood by him. But these heinous accusations have left them stunned, the source said.

Komisarjevsky, 26, and Steven Hayes, 44, were slapped with a string of charges including kidnapping, sexual assault and arson. Prosecutors are still undecided whether to charge them with murder or capital murder.

Officials said that Janet Hawke-Petit, 48, was strangled in her Cheshire home. Her daughters, Hayley, 17, and Michaela, 11, died of smoke inhalation.

Their father, Dr. William A. Petit was severely beaten, but survived. He remains in serious condition.

The family had been held hostage for hours after the thieves broke in Monday and forced the mother to withdraw money from a local bank, where she was able to tip off a teller to call police.

Komisarjevsky and Hayes were arrested after trying to flee the burning house.

Keep the Church out of it!

I love these articles about the Christian mind-set, "Everybody in the family tried as hard as they could to make him feel welcomed, but he was very distant," "They had many sleepless nights and tried very hard to figure out what was going wrong."

My parents were die-hard Christians.  Ever have a creepy older-man tell you about Jesus's love for children with a hard-on in his pants?  It's disgusting!

People act as if religious people can't be freaks.

I got a news flash for you folks:  Religious fanatics are the scariest people in the world, look at Ground Zero, and tell me the value of a man, woman and child.

The cosmic joke

My neighbor's daughter was looking to adopt but decided to do artificial insemination with an unknown sperm doner.  She's doing this because she was refused by the adoption agencies her church had recommended do to her through websites like: http://catholic.adoption.com/

My neighbor's daughter is lesbian, and is married to a woman.  They are pregnant with their first daughter.

How's that for circumventing church laws, and adoption scams?

I believe God Knows what is in a person's heart; that should have nothing to do with a person's bank account or genitalia.
