Websleuths Post of the Day/SpriteGal WinsWEBSLEUTHS POST OF THE DAY FOR THE WEEKEND OF 10/8 TO 10/11
Don't be shy! Bring your nominations and post on this thread!
WAIT, before we start the nominations let's turn the true crime clock back to the past few days and Lo and Behold we have the latest winner for Websleuths Post of the Day.
The winner is a very simple post but is such a powerful truth it deserves to win.
Congratulations to SpriteGal for winning the Websleuths Post of the Day from the Shooting at Umpqua Community College thread.
"I have yet to see a Gun Control debate on the internet go smoothly."
Look, I know this is a simple statement, but it is a solid and bold FACT gun control debates on the Internet never go smoothly.
The Websleuths Moderators will tell you this topic sucks the life out of them.
Trying to discuss gun control on Websleuths has driven all the mods to chew their fingernails down to their elbows because it's so stressful. No way any one poster is going to change anyone's mind.
All of a sudden the kindest posters literally grow fangs and start foaming at the mouth mad. I've seen it happen. Scary Stuff.
That's what the topic of Gun Control will do to Websleuths members. That's why SpriteGal's post wins Post of the Day on Websleuths.
Now it's your turn. Pick a post from the MILLIONS of posts on Websleuths and nominate it on this thread.
Have a great weekend.

Thanks to cpeacock1 for nominating this post from LALaw200. It is a wonderful post.
I would like to nominate this comment from the Teresa Ann Grace Sievers threads.

Justice for all victims!
Thanks! This has to be his first trip to Florida that he was not in charge of himself!
Was it worth it, CWW? Why execute a wonderful doctor and Mother? Did that execution make your life easier or better?
I'm still just so angry that CWW and JR murdered Dr. Sievers! They both may have done time in the past, but this time it is going to be so, so different. They still will never suffer as much as Dr. Sievers inevitably did even if the death penalty is pursued and gotten. If found guilty we know it will be forever until they are executed and then it will be done as if they were being aestheticized for surgery.
*I pray the evidence against the both of them is ironclad!

Nominating this brilliant post by lawstudent for post of the day from the Umpqua Community College Shooting thread.
While they have become increasingly more frequent, these incidents remain anomalies with the killers reaching extremes that appear to be totally unpredictable IMO. All the warning signs are possessed by large numbers of people who do not reach this point. I do think it is a perfect storm of circumstance and mental state, combined with awareness of the possibility due to media coverage. Most police are not trained to handle it - it is so rare that only specialized teams at higher up levels are going to be truly trained for anything similar. And "people with mental health problems" is not a category with any meaning and by its nature never will be. Right now you have pretty much have felons, people who have been declared incompetent or had some other sort of extreme mental health adjudication (very rare), and everyone else. Background checks generally determine where someone falls. The first two cannot buy guns. The last group can without much restriction. This is one issue where I believe there virtually no in-the-middle meaningful solutions - background checks, home visits, etc. There aren't really even extreme solutions. There are no reliable variables to judge who does this - every one that is focused on, even if it has a clear connection, applies to such a huge group of people that is so poorly defined that attempting to control it would likely make things worse. Very upsetting situation, and the debates just make me feel worse because they all make people angrier without having any real hope of a solution. Depressing.

my nomination for the next POD comes from the Dr. Kendra Hatcher case.
By the way, I keep seeing articles referring to BD as a "mastermind." Please. That's like saying someone who flushes a toilet is a master plumber.
