    VERY ODD behavior IMO.

    The friends may have been a few years younger but still they were in their late 20's. Attention was attention to JY even if it was negative.
    I agree...maybe his family could have done him some good by discouraging the behavior instead of embracing it with cute little "imp" names.

    I wonder if imp is a word used in the South because I never heard anyone use that word in the Northeast.

    An Imp is a small mischievous demon....usually found in the company of older women...

    My family from Centerville/Nashville Tennessee taught me this is what an Imp is...

    Tinkerbell is a pixie or a sprite. She can behave impish but she is no Imp.
    An imp is not an endearing term for a child. It might have come across that way on the stand, but calling him an Imp and following with how he would "moon" his grandmother. Either way she was admitting she KNEW her son is/was a hellion.
    ~moo LOL!

    JY was an Imp.

    As for the people around him, in their 20's they probably found this funny and maybe still did (lots of people don't grow up until their 30's or later). He got attention for his behavior and got the yuks from his guy buds and lots of people wanted to be around the outgoing guy.

    At some point normally developed people no longer find his brand of strange amusing. Some people in that circle had gotten to that point, some didn't.
    This is a great point...Jason never grew up, simple as that. Being the class clown and life of the party is typical for children, perhaps even stretching through college/early 20s. But at a certain point, most people grow up, or at least know the boundaries of what is socially acceptable. A side story to the trial was how Jason Young's former friends seemed to distance themselves from him, and certainly didn't zealously defend him. Curiously, the highway patrol witness seemed like his closest friend.

    Unfortunately, being a sociopath, Jason Young's "Peter Pan" complex was only compounded by his family's adoration and "oh, that Jason!" attitude. He was never disciplined or taught responsibility. His treatment of women outside his family belies a notion of entitlement, and that he was not to be questioned. Despite these character flaws, the guy clearly could charm women and enjoyed it...sadly, Michelle Young was fooled by his false charm.

    Jason was not wired to coexist with a strong-willed woman who was his equal, in marriage, and would stand up to him when necessary. To Michelle Young, she likely never viewed herself as "standing up" to him at all. They argued like most couples, maybe more than most, but by all accounts it was never physical. The second pregnancy lit the fuse. Jason Young became a timebomb, and he delayed the fuse in his first attempt to kill Michelle. When that failed, he realized he would have to do whatever it took to avoid being further "locked" in marriage. To a woman to whom he could not relate and whose mother was worse (Jason's worldview, mind you). They argued over the family holiday plans, he could not imagine living with Michelle and her mother.

    By this point, the bomb could not be stopped. Jason was not going down this path. That's where his sociopathic mentality overruled any sense of logic that the vast majority of us possess. He did not proceed with consequences in mind, empathy (clearly), or obviously, logic. His reticence to this restrained lifestyle overtook common sense, and was compounded greatly by his hatred of Linda.

    Psychobabble aside...I'm just relieved that Young is where he's supposed to be and pray that Michelle and Rylan can look down and offer some comfort to their loved ones.

    This thread is for post-verdict discussion only. It is NOT for re-hashing or debating trial testimony or evidence. It is certainly not for gloating over a perceived "win," or for baiting those who happen to believe that justice was served in this case.

    Again, the jury has spoken.

    I'm copying Tricia's excellent reminder here:



    Hi Everyone,

    Emotions are running high and understandably so.

    Please, I am pleading with you, keep in mind our terms of service.

    Out TOS in its shortest form is this:

    Don't be a jerk and don't attack each other.

    If you don't agree with someone please say so but no need to be rude about it.

    If someone is rude to you then hit the alert button rather than respond. It is the red triangle in the upper right hand corner of the post.

    If you are getting too worked up take a break from the computer. You can always come back.

    I appreciate your participation in the forum but keep in mind our moderators are all volunteers with personal lives. When things get too hot then their lives are disrupted as well.

    Thank you in advance for understanding.

    Tricia
    I guess I don't understand what this thread is for then.

    I don't recall ever hearing a 'child' referred to as an imp. Maybe a rascal or a little devil (which I guess is the same thing lol) but not an imp. That same child would have just been called a jack*** in his thirties, if he was still behaving like that, though.

    An imp is a mythological being similar to a fairy or demon, frequently described in folklore and superstition. The word may perhaps derive from the term ympe, used to denote a young grafted tree.
    Originating from Germanic folklore, the imp was a small lesser demon. It should also be noted that demons in Germanic legends were not necessarily always evil. Imps were often mischievous rather than evil or harmful, and in some regions they were portrayed as attendants of the gods.
