I saw to many times where we moved from in MO the natives got treated special and the transplants like we were treated different. It is not just in Kansas, it is all over is small town USA.

    I think the judges could make a difference in these small towns if they wanted to. I know they have to follow the law, but they can also accept special circumstances. jmo

    I've seen judges try to make differences around here. In my corner of Kansas, we have a county attorney who lets her son drive over people's cornfields and gardens, while she concocts false accusations against others. A judge actually prohibited her from any prosecution of a reporter here, because he perceived that she was taking the words of that reporter "too personally". Another judge also threw the book at a high school senior, an honor student, in this county who pimped an eight grader she was supposed to mentor to some railroad employees! The human trafficking charge ended up getting her put in prison for almost ten years. There are actually people here who think that a little human trafficking between friends is no big deal! They have no idea how this looks to the rest of us, or how this affects the rest of the nation, or the rest of the world. I have never lived in a place where people actually came out and said that prostitution of a junior high student by a high school student is okey-dokey. These people are truly freaky.

    Yes they are freaky and I just don't understand their type of mentality. There seems to be a lot of bulling going on in our town as I am sure there is in many towns. Our school system is trying to approach it with assembly's and teacher training, that only goes so far. When parents don't see anything wrong with what their child or even adult child does what good does help do.

    We need crimes like these rape and sodomy cases charged, tried and convicted! jmo

    Sometimes, a few people wake up when the FBI gets involved in these cases. Other times, people from NE Kansas visit other areas, or move to other areas, and wonder why they get into trouble with the law, or cannot get along with their new neighbors and workmates. I know someone from Nemaha County (it borders Jackson County, where Ewing's case is being tried) who thought it would be okay to loudly use racial slurs in a bar in Norfolk, Virginia. He was wrong. He probably still has scars from it........Violence is not okay, but this guy had absolutely no manners. He learned the hard way.

    I think it is just to show the jury what his tastes are and what his character is like. I am a bit surprised that it got included in evidence, since the FBI also have a case pending against Ewing for kiddie porn.

    That makes more sense then, I had forgotten about that.

    Sometimes it is hard to post about a trial that isn't about murder and this is a totally different subject matter but a very important one. I appreciate those that are reading! I do not know any of these people. jmo
