That’s good to hear you aren’t cheering it. The male counterpart of the 300 lb. tattooed butch, the 300 lb. cellmate named Bubba, always makes an appearance here when some murderer deserving of the death penalty doesn’t get it, and far too many FReepers seem to regard prison rape as compensatory justice. Even for lesser crimes than rape or murder.
Our prison system could in fact greatly reduce the rape that occurs. Those who run it, those who work in it, choose not to.
This article from my neighboring state, MO, offends everyone's sensibilities. The fact that this teen could barely remember her lawyer's words of repentance was pitiful to the victim's relatives.
It should be obvious to many that this girl has yet to come to the realization that what she did was morally reprehensible to everyone, not merely the family of the victim.
Our local radio talk show following Rush was handling calls and making statements questioning the teen's grandmother, who is raising the girl.
Excuse me, but where this girl has spent most of her waking hours need to be receiving the most scrutiny - her school, friends and "entertainment (including all tv shows and movies.)
The hosts of the show questioned grandma's not having looked at the girl's shocking photos on her facebook page! I daresay, grandma might not even know how to get online much less, have her own acct. with facebook to even look at her granddaughter's photos!
What she has been learning (or not learning), teachers' opinions and lack of morality that is illegal in education, especially the NEA, shares a far greater blame but in the end, this girl is over the age of reason so she, herself, is responsible and therefore will be receiving the full punishment of the law, save capital punishment.
