"A confessed burglar said he "lost control" while beating Dr. William Petit with a bat before going on to murder Petit's wife and two daughters and admitted he started to "enjoy it," according to his journal entries read in court today....
Komisarjevsky said that he "resented" the implication that he raped Michaela and wrote that he had "spared her that degree of demoralization." Admitting that he did in fact sexually assault her, Komisarjevsky wrote, "In a vulgar display of power, I ejaculated onto her."
"As for why? It was the accumulation of years of pent up aggression," he wrote.
Komisarjevsky admits in the journal to taking photos of Michaela after the assault, images he wrote that he planned to use to blackmail her parents.
"What I was not prepared for was my demons getting the better of me," he wrote.
Hayley was the fighter of the family, according to Komisarjevsky, who claimed the father was "passive" toward saving his family.
"If you don't want to defend your family, then take your chances with the criminal while police sit outside and follow protocol," wrote Komisarjevsky...
"I am what I am and make no excuses," he wrote. "I am a criminal with a criminal's mind, and my anticipated death sentence will be a sentence of mercy."...
In his journals Komisarjevsky claims that once he started beating Dr. Petit it "released a leash too hard to rein back in."
"I was faced with the shocking realization that in some respects, I enjoy it," he wrote. "They were experiencing what I experience every day."...
