Phillip Garrido’s story is a unique, horrifying one. Garrido kidnapped and raped multiple women, all starting with a young woman in the 1970s. This young woman was discovered by police and Garrido was given two different sentences, both of which he was let off from lightly and given parole. He was determined to be not a menace to society. The most horrifying part of his story, in my opinion, begins here.
He kidnapped Jaycee Dugard, an 11 year-old girl, and kept her in his shed for years, impregnating her twice. Jaycee gave birth to both children. She was kept against her will for 18 years. For some reason, the police didn’t discover her over the years on the 60 visits the parole board paid to his house. It was a series of careless moves by law enforcement that just kept happening.
There were so many failures by the parole department. Neighbors had seen Jaycee multiple times, and if they had just been asked by police, she could have been saved sooner. There were wires leading to the shed in his backyard that the police never asked about. He was being kept track of by GPS, and it was never questioned why in the world he spent so much time in that part of his backyard.
Jaycee’s mother spoke in the videos, completely appalled and disappointed by law enforcement’s many failures, sharing that the parole board never called her or apologized to her for the litany of mistakes made by them that caused her daughter to be raped and tortured for a shocking 18 years. There was so much more that could have been done for the situation and I think that the parole boards involved in the cases should receive punishment and new training to avoid future situations like this.
