“Sorry, he doesn’t fool me. The reason he apologizes over and over and also the reason why it sounds scripted is because, I believe, he doesn’t mean anything he’s saying. If he reads the prepared words, he doesn’t have to believe them. I don’t think his ego would ever allow for him to believe he was capable of the things he’s done.
People like Billy McFarland gain their status by preying on others and living a life composed almost entirely of lies, omissions and half-truths. I had hoped for some revealing information, but it was just drivel. Solitary confinement is probably the only punishment that works for people like Billy because it takes the attention off of them. I believe everyone should be given a second chance, but my personal view is that he will reoffend at some point. He can’t afford the extremely lavish lifestyle he wants nor does he have the patience for honest work. So I believe that, without intensive cognitive behavioral therapy, he will continue to defraud people once he’s released.
I feel terrible for the Bahamians who gave so much of themselves and lost so much. I hope that those good people don’t believe that all Americans are so corrupt.”
