    pushed them to the back of the line and had to wait three years to hear an answer that many detectives had thought they knew anyways. What also upset me is that Paul Bernardo had the audacity to ask if he was able to have day parole. To even think that he feels he has a right to be in society is sickening, and the fact that he has shown no remorse for everything he has done proves that he is a psychopath. He still hasn’t even taken any responsibility for the three girls’ murders and still blames…
