WHY WAS MAD DOG LET OFF THE LEASH? – Friday March 1 2013

– To those who guarded him at Barwon Prison, Antonio “Mad Dog” Loguancio was Victoria’s most dangerous man.

To a judge faced by his crimes, his depravity was such that to outline it in a published ruling would be contrary to public morals.

Loguancio has committed far more outrages than he could ever be charged with or that could ever be proved in a court.

Officially, his infamous career, which includes scores of crimes, many violent, dates back to 1991.

It was then that a long-suffering female victim went to police to reveal his depraved appetite for torture and sexual assault.

The attacks he perpetrated on her were too sadistic for the Herald Sun to report or for judges to recite in their sentencing remarks.

They involved shooting arrows at her as she hid in a toilet; bashed her with wood; slashing her with a carving knife; and holding a pump-action shotgun to her head while pulling her by the hair.

During the prosecution, her parent’s house was fire-bombed – an attack detectives believed Loguancio ordered from jail to silence her.

Once, when detectives tried to fingerprint him, he broke his own fingers on the spot so he would have to be taken to hospital.

At 18, a vengeful Loguancio tried to burn down his school after he was expelled.

In 2007, the year he was to be released early on parole, prison sources told the Herald Sun he had committed about 40 vicious assaults on other inmates and prison guards.

One guard observed his unpredictability and his penchant for violence was convinced that one day he would kill.

A police source told the Herald Sun that although Loguancio was low in the jail pecking order, he could not be underestimated.

In one attack, he allegedly bashed a guard in a shower block. But that incident didn’t stop a female officer from becoming close to him.

She let him move in with her after he was paroled for rape. But that arrangement did not last long.

A former police member who had dealings with Loguancio said most of his offences involved weapons.

Judges presiding at the rape trial and subsequent appeal were shocked.

Judge Mervyn Kimm described the attacks as depraved, appalling and quite callous.

Court of Appeal judge Frank Callaway went further: “Some of them were of such a depraved character that a description in a judgement that will go on the internet and may be reported would be contrary to public morals,” he said.

Despite this, Loguancio served only five months more than his minimum term of 8 1/2 years of a 12- year sentence. While in jail he completed engineering and hospitality courses – Mark Buttler & Anthony Dowsley

About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
