Jury sets bondage lady free: ‘Liberals’ hit in slay verdict
Boston Herald ^ | January 31, 2006 | Jessica Heslam

Posted on 01/31/2006 9:53:44 AM PST by ConservativeStatement

An aging dominatrix cleared yesterday in the death and dismemberment of a man strapped to a torture rack called the ordeal “emotionally draining,” while the deceased’s elderly mother blamed the verdict on jury “liberals.”

“I just wish we could have gotten a little justice,” Audrey Lord said yesterday from her Texas home. “Some of those New Englanders are pretty wise but a lot are liberals. I sort of expected it.”

Liberals will deal with it by passing a law requiring all S&M contracts in Massachusetts have a warning clause that being chained in a dudgeon could be hazardous to your health.

An aging dominatrix

There's some punishment for her.

I just like how they called her a "sex worker."

I guess that is Yankee talk for "whore."

Then it's a punishment we all share. Is there anyone here who isn't aging? :)

What a disgrace this was! However, being Mass. it does not surprise me. I am just thankful I don't live in Mass. and have never been there nor will I ever go there. I wish we could kick them out of the Union, (but keep the good freepers!)

With all due respect to Mrs. Lord, what was her son doing in the dungeon? Doesn't sound like he was kidnapped.

Fumbling by the detectives, absence of evidence and speculation by the prosecution...... no wonder the jury let her go.

Conviction requires "proof beyond a reasonable doubt".

Police said she confessed... but can provide the confession and "lost" their notes. Defendant says no confession.

No body to support the claim that he died of a heart attack. So that is pure speculation.

If you want to get mad at someone, get mad at the Prosecution.

Kind of hard to get a conviction with no body and a confession that no one bothered to tape.

Yeah...but I've never had a newspaper story about me, particularly one that started off that way.

It's the state of the party of choice. So I guess if you choose to go into S and M settings, and one person does not come out alive. That is the way it is. Typical libspeak, huh?

LOL! That is why I included getting all the good Freepers out. Plus, I want to make it clear that I am not bashing the whole state of MASS. I know not everyone is a crazy liberal. And it pains me to say anything bad about that state, since it is one of the 13 original colonies, has a great place in American history, etc....it hurts me to see it turned into what it has become.

Why do you think he was living in Mass? Maybe he'd heard his mom going on about those "liberal perverts" on the East Coast, and decided he wanted to get him some o' dat...

At FR, however, the presumption of innocence is only in place for those who are not "pervs", liberals, and/or Democrats.

I'm guessing that one of the detectives knew the lady quiet well...and just made sure that notes disappeared. This whole story has a funny smell to it...like politicians involved or such.

Fitting, since ghouls were supposed to dismember and eat dead bodies.

She's a sadist and he the DEAD masochist

If she was a REAL sadist, when he said "Beat Me," she would have said: No."

It's good that people are getting sick of the liberals in the courts, and that whole attitude.

Also, great article by the Herald - anything in the Globe about disgust with the libs?

Reminds me of the one where the sadist marries the masochist,

They're on their honeymoon, and the masochist says "Ohh, beat me, spank me!", and the sadist says "Heh-heh, Nooooooooo!"

That's the punchline to a very old joke ...

The sadist and the masochist got married thinking that they had it all. On the wedding night, the masochist said beat me, and the sadist said no ...

This is the quote used in the Globe story: ''She should have been guilty," said Lord's mother, Audrey H. Lord, 81, reached by phone at her home in Jonesboro, Texas. ''I think that everyone is kind of liberal and tree-huggers up there in Massachusetts. You don't get justice there."

I am surprised the headline at the Globe wasn't "Oppressive male failed in attempt to hurt working woman." :-)

Well, she beat the rap. Looks like the jury spanked the prosecution. No need to whip up a frenzy over this.

Gosh, thanks for the ping. My kinda thread...

You just have to look at it from the woman's point of view. I mean, how many times has it happened to you? There you are with a nekkid guy strapped to a rack in your basement dungeon and he up and dies on you. What's left to do but dismember him with a chain saw?

Well, it makes sense to me...

"Kind of hard to get a conviction with no body and a confession that no one bothered to tape."

A motive helps also. Why kill a paying customer? I did not read that she had a history of violence - at least nonconsensual violence. Also, not a really sympathetic victim. The jury probably didn't feel an urgent need to vindicate his right to be spanked, electrocuted and debased in a facility equipped with a defibrillator.

Apparently such things are legal in Massachusetts. Ah well, states rights, you know.
