Don't you monsters understand! If we kill the mom, then her daughter comes back to life! Jesus demands blood sacrifice for a resurrection.
My prayers go out to Nancy Grace, to help her get through this ordeal. I remember that after she accused that mom of killing her daughter, then the mom killed herself, then the mom was demonstratively proven innocent, Nancy retired for almost two days to eat cookie dough and watch Saw movies. This time I suspect she might need a whole week off.
Come on man, don't even understand the desire people have for justice here? You say the death penalty is barbaric and outdated, but its for the part of humanity that thirsts for justice. A side of humanity that suppressed by sissy philosophy majors.
This need for justice is in our story telling since it was created. The same reason we like to see our Disney villains fall from really high places is the same reason this bitch should die.
And its bad we killed Osama too right?
Osama confessed (the whole building full of unarmed people deserved it too!)
I am totally agreeing with Cena, and nothing will make me change my mind, because he just gave me a word for my desire to see the entire Republican Party hanged in public.
I love you, Cena!
Oh my God, can we build a guillotine, you guys!?
No, not Osama, Hitler! You're doing it wrong.
Even if we actually knew she was guilty of 1st degree murder (as opposed to neglect or accidental manslaughter) I find Nancy's implication that the little dead girl suffers when we don't murder her mother to be bizarre. If you don't believe in an afterlife, then the girl is beyond caring. If you do, then I doubt a little girl in heaven enjoying the infinite compassion of God has bloodlust. In fact, the only way it makes sense is if the little girl is in hell, hoping her mother joins her. Which... might be what she's thinking. No one can predict what occurs in Nancy Grace's head.
Nancy Grace is freaking out because now she's gotta come up with some last minute blood sacrifice for her demon masters.
1. It makes a warning to other would be murderers.
2. It makes the victims and the public feel good.
3. It makes sure they can never murder again.
1. Is objectively proven wrong. Studies have found that deterrence through harsher penalties work for some crimes, but not for 1st degree murder, manslaughter, or crimes of passion.
2. Is literally antithetical to justice. It can be a side-effect, but it can't ever be a reason.
3. Is just as true for life-imprisonment.
I'd be fine with the death penalty if the system actually worked. But we don't kill people based on the heinousness of the crime and the strength of evidence, we kill people based on how unsympathetic they are (which statistically is heavily influenced by race), how much they can legally fight back (a function of their poverty and how broken the justice system is) and whether it's politically popular for whichever voters the governor is trying to court.
And even if none of that were true, the Supreme Court has ruled that neither prosecutorial abuse nor convincing evidence of a person's innocence is sufficient to stay an execution. People will claim they don't trust the government and police for both incompetence and corruption, yet still trust them with the power to kill citizens without any accountability for mistake or fraud.

Nancy Grace vs Glenn Beck
Who is more disgusting?
Easy: Glenn Beck. Nancy never comments on matters of import, just on tabloid-fodder trials that get blown out of proportion. I'm not saying it's not a big deal that a toddler got killed, but Nancy screeching about it is probably going to end up affecting fewer people than when Glenn plays war apologist or tells us how we need to obliterate medicare or we're communists.
Indeed...Glenn Beck did not rape and kill a girl in.....is that still a thing?
|wackyakmed - 2011-07-05 |
Nancy Grace's personality type is much more offensive to me than Glenn Beck's. With Beck, I feel like I could have a beer with him, listen to the batshit crazy conspiracy theories, and have a genuine good time. Grace's superficial piety and morally simplistic righteous rage makes me hate humanity more every time I'm exposed to it.
Yeah, say what you will about her "station," but Beck's just a dumb puppet. Grace is a user, who has probably legitimately ruined more lives than Beck has ruined days.
I think it's because Glenn is an entertainer. He's playing to an audience that misinformed, paranoid, and driven by fear and anger, but it's still all about giving the audience a spectacle. He reminds me of the old revival preachers, who'd use snakes one town, tongues another, based on what played with the crowd. He started as a morning zoo-crew DJ, and has only really changed his audiences.
Nancy is just a little ball of smug superiority and hatred. That this happens to be marketable is icing on the cake for her. Otherwise she's be at home leaving 10 page rants on the AOL News comments section about how someone needs to take their gun and do something (but not her).

She'll find a way to blame this on the Duke lacrosse team soon enough.

Watch the "Crowd 'shocked' by not guilty verdict" video to see a good example of Grace's ugly, ugly audience.
|Cena_mark - 2011-07-06 |
Okay I get it. Nancy Grace is an evil cunt. That aside just about everybody wants that murderer dead. Just look at the little girl she murdered and feel the murderous rage built up. If it doesn't you're not human.
That's hatred, and that's not what the ponies would want, mark.
Well wouldn't it be nice if we all lived in Equestria and the Elements of Harmony could make everything right. That would be cute, BUT WRONG!!!! In the real world there are is an element of harmony. In some states its called life, in other states its called the electric chair.
If the desire to execute someone depends on the cuteness of the little white girls (Nancy's stock in trade) they're accused of hurting, then you're doing it wrong.
I would watch a My Little Pony show however, if the element of harmony was Death incarnate and his sidekick, life imprisonment.
Thank god we have people on the internet to tell us when juries make a mistake in not finding guilty obviously guilty criminals that the media has been latched onto decrying the guilt of for at least a few days straight.
Where would we be, as a people, without them.
Good point AOL, now lets leave poor OJ alone too.
Wow, Cena. You sure are knowledgeable about this cartoon you profess to hate.
But SURPRISE ENDING: I'm actually okay with the death penalty, though I think it should be used sparingly because there is never a good reason to be like Texas. And if she'd been found guilty, I'd have been okay with Casey Anthony getting it.
But now we've been robbed of this possibility, and Batman is dancing with the devil in the pale moonlight.
Xenocide, Its good to see I'm not the only one here who believes in the death penalty. Guess you're cooler than I'd thought.
Of course I know some stuff about My Little Pony. I'm not ignorant. I don't go hating stuff for no reason at all.

Now she'll be able to afford even more shitty tattoos with the money she'll make off the book/movie deals.

I applaud the Jury in their decision. The Prosecution over reached by going for Murder 1, and on top of that, they brought a very weak case with no cause of death and no motive. It was a circumstantial case.
The Jury did what it was supposed to. It made an informed decision based upon the facts, instead of public opinion. We, as a society, can't ask for more.
I'm in support of the death penalty, but only when it is, without a doubt, proven that the person charged is absolutely guilty. I'd rather see 10 murderers go free than allow for one innocent person suffer society's wrath.
Also 5 for evil, just because it's Nancy. I can't stand the bitch.
|joelkazoo - 2011-07-06 |
Nancy's basically saying: "I fully agree with the way the criminal justice system is set up here in America, except when I personally disagree with it." I wouldn't call her a cunt, but she's definitely a bitch. Evil, evil shit.
|spikestoyiu - 2011-07-06 |
Is Casey Anthony going to be reimbursed for all of those hot body contests that she's missed over the years or what?
There's plenty of reasons.
1. Its stupid.
2. Its for girls
3. Its full of annoying characters.
4. The fanbase sucks.
Playing devil's advocate:
1. It's not stupid; Lauren Faust has worked on other very good programs, and given that it could have been nothing but a vapid toy commercial, she really did a lot with the material she was given. She's especially savvy to have seen what the fanbase beyond the target demographic was glomming onto (the character of Derpy Hooves, spawned from a mistake in the animation) and incorporating it into the show.
2. It's targeted at girls. As someone pointed out elsewhere, Pixar movies are largely targeted at boys, but girls are allowed to enjoy them as well.
3. That's a matter of taste, though from what I gather, some are meant to be annoying as part of their character (just like in most TV shows).
4. The only one I can say that's definitely true of is Caminante Nocturno, though rabid fans of anything generally tend to suck, if not outright terrify others.
By the way, all this info comes pretty much secondhand, as I've only seen part of one episode along with a ton of the mashups. It's not for me, but I can see the appeal, and it's one of those cartoons that has a lot more going for it than most of Cartoon Network's fare.
And yeah, you posted to the wrong comment, but that's a mistake everyone makes sooner or later.
can you fucking dorks at least keep your damn my little pony bullshit out of the comment section for videos about real things that happened in the real world JESUS CHRIST
Looking at this thread, I can tell you right now that somewhere out there, Nightmare Moon is dancing tonight.
What the fuck is going on in here?

One guilty person going free does not excuse the thousands of innocent people rotting behind bars. But that's how we do business.
