  • Follow Crime & courts

JEFFERSONVILLE, Ga. -- A Twiggs County man tortured Saturday morning during a home invasion robbery was burned with hot scissors an estimated 40 times, according to the Twiggs County Sheriff’s Office.

Investigator Robert Rodgers told The Macon Telegraph that the assailants took apart a pair of scissors and heated one of the blades using a gas stove.

Robert Luce, 61, was burned on his neck and back while the men demanded to know where he kept money in his home.

Paul Stafford, 41, of Laurens County, is accused of burning Luce during the torture, which also included beating Luce while he was bound with duct tape, Rodgers said.

Too bad our constitution

Too bad our constitution prohibits criminals from getting a taste of their own medicine.

I'd agree CG, except...

...that method would be far too quick and easy for what these pieces of slime should get. There were four of them, but they will never, ever be charged with a hate crime, which is what should happen.

I have a feeling that Paul Stafford, 41, of Laurens County will someday feel eternal heat much hotter than delivered to Mr Luce and he will also smell boiling ,burning sulfur for eternity.......but hey ,that's just me.

Violent Criminals

A large majority of violent offenders are repeat offenders that should still be behind bars. If we are unable to reach our youth and help to place them on the right path from the start, there is very little hope for them once they become adult repeat offenders. They certainly are not rehabilitated while in jail or prison, if anything, they become worse. We must do something to prevent violent offenders such as this from ever walking our streets again. Once you commit acts such as this or other violent acts such as rape, armed robbery, murder, etc. you should NEVER be allowed to walk amongst law abiding citizens again.

Read the entire article in

Read the entire article in the Macon Telegraph. It's on line. Judging by the comments to the article in the Telegraph, it's obvious they don't have a Sean equivalent moderating the comments.
