- Reaction score
It really troubles me when the talking heads and lawyers on HLN talk about JA not being the worst of the worst compared to serial killers etc. and perhaps getting Life.
The fact that they 'count' the number of people one murders angers me. Each person is a human life and killing one person should define one as not being the worst of the worst. If 29 stabs wounds and a gun shot to kill a man doesn't qualify her for that what does 30 stabs, 35 stabs?????
It just took longer to catch the person killing more than one person.
While I naturally have a certain reaction to crimes against children and the elderly (and brutality against pets too, if I'm being honest) and I think that's common, I also think society tends to write off crimes against adult males as less cruel or severe.
There's a whole mindset that goes along with that -- when adult males go missing to Domestic violence against men, so forth and so on -- not equal attention, not viewed the same, different reactions to their perpetrators. I find this unacceptable. A life is a life, a victim is a victim, and justice should be justice.
