As I watched The Learning Channel’s documentary last night which told the story of Jaycee Lee Dugard’s horror, I was pretty blown away that there was barely any mention of Nancy Garrido’s part in the kidnapping, rapes, confinement and psychological abuse of Jaycee.
The Learning Channel did a pretty good job over all but they did not address the fact that a woman played a huge role in Jaycee’s eighteen year nightmare. They spoke of Nancy only to say that she helped in the kidnapping and that she met and married Phillip Garrido when he was in prison for raping Katherine Callaway in 1976.
The documentary highlighted a few experts on the case. They all called Phillip Garrido, Jaycee’s rapist, a “Sadist,” a “Sociopath” and “evil.” Do you know what they said about Nancy Garrido? They said she was “obedient” to her husband. Hmmm. Why was the woman not called a “sociopath” and “evil?” The Learning Channel documentary did the same damn thing that most all people do in cases like these. They call the man a “monster” and consider the woman a “victim.”
In my mind, Nancy Garrido is just as much of a monster as her child rapist husband. Nancy Garrido not only helped to traumatize eleven year-old Jaycee when she pulled her into the car and stole Jaycee her from her family, but Nancy stood by as her husband raped his child victim in a shed or tent in the back yard of the Garrido home.
Nancy Garrido then allowed her husband to hold down and repeatedly rape Jaycee Lee Dugard over and over and over and over again for eighteen long years. Who is the Sadist now?
