Jailed.

Santa Ana -- Ex-convict Harvey Glatman, a TV repairman, is shown in jail here after police said he confessed to raping and strangling three women and burying their bodies in the desert. The victims were Judy Ann Dull, 19, and Ruth Mercado, 24, the mother of two and a divorcee. Police said two of the bodies have been found in the desert. According to police, Glatman admitted playing a cat and mouse game of ravaging his victims at the point of a gun, forcing them to submit to being photographed in the nude and then cold-bloodedly strangling them while they believed they were soon to be released. (1958)

This swine was arrested in 1958 and by 18SEP1959 had been executed. Justice used to be quick in this country.

This country and it's so called "Greatest Generation" was under apartheid in 1959, hardly just, and Tom Brokaw's omission of race and for that matter the Hell's Angels has always stuck in my craw. Glatman?
Ecce Homo!
