    I might struggle, but that doesn't mean I shouldn't get over it. Of course I will remember them and wish they were still here but if I am letting it negatively effect my life 25 years later, yes I do need to get over it for my own sake. Hope to God somebody points it out to me too.

    Not necessarily.

    Martha Stewart went to prison, she's the richest whitest celebrity ever. The Desperate Housewives in Jersey lady and her husband both spent time in jail, Bill Cosby, Anthony Weiner went to pervert rehab for like 21 months, the Subway kid (Jared?), R. Kelly's going to prison, guaranteed...................and Huffman's sentence is going to be at least 30-60 days in jail I bet you.

    Not saying you're not right, obviously our justice system favors the rich who can afford the best legal representation. But my point is Loughlin and her husband pissed off the courts when they didn't take the plea deal, and it might bite them in the ass.


    Martha Stewart went to a Country Club as far as a prison goes, yes she was in a prison but it was more a work release environment.


    Stewart was convicted of insider trading, Laughlin paid someone to get her kid into college.........they didn't plow through a group of special needs kids outside a school high on crack.

    We don't need them to go to San Quentin and do hard time. I think sometime we just want to see rich people suffer, when justice is just fine. Guarantee you Martha Stewart isn't going to do illegal trading anymore, that's what we're after.


    Yet when we signed Kendricks who was just giving so information really this board wanted him almost flayed. I guess because she is a Quazi Female she gets a pass in that aspect.

    Put her in a real prison and make her earn her way to the Country club release facility.

    Here is the straw man...


    By every definition of the word, what I said what was not a straw man. Just trying to explain the source of why I think the way I do in this regard.


    And applying that to others as your perception of how they feel and why.

    There are a lot of types of crimes (and it varies by state/jurisdiction) where only 9/12 jurors are needed for a conviction, just FYI. I don't know about Lori Loughlin's case, though.

    Has Kendricks served time I don't know about? He was suspended by the league, but he hasn't spent any time in prison that I know of, and Pete sure seemed optimistic that he's going to play this year............and I have no idea what a "Quazi Female" is.

    And again, Stewart was convicted of lying and obstruction of justice and served 5 months. Kendricks has been nothing but cooperative with the investigators, so I doubt he's going to get that much time, if any time at all.

    But we shall see.

  • I would like to say we don't have a justice system, we have a legal system. It is not about Justice. Second, Fender is being funny and right at the same time. It is interesting to see the conversations people pick with him.

    Katy Perry has like 100M Twitter followers, unfortunately OJ thinks infamous is the same as famous.........it's always been his downfall.

    People are following him because they want to watch the dumpster fire unfold, not because they like or respect him.

  • While Katy Perry is a tool, she's no murderer.

    Statistically Simpson isn't either, but he just IS, and that's what this world has become.

    Fake news,, fake murderers.

  • I just wanted to say that while I know my opinion was not popular, and could possibly offend people (i certainly don't think anyone here wou be actually offended by it), as well as possibly be considered trolling, I am very thankful that my posts were not editted or deleted by the mods.

    There are forums out there where a post like that would be deleted swiftly with a temporary suspension. That is how bad society is getting...if you don't agree with a certain completely subjective life philosophy, people with the power will censor you without thinking, and that is such bullshit and almost rage inducing when you think about it.

    We are humans, and therefore we have the ability to disagree with dignity and at least some respect. And that's how it should be. There is no objective right or wrong with these kinds of opinions.

    And to be clear, i would never say "get over it" to the victims' family members outright. That is rude. But we are tucked away here on Seahawks.Net so I didn't see a problem with putting in it laymens terms. If they came to me and asked "fender, I just can't get over Nicole and Ron's deaths. What should I do?" I would carefully and politely tell them that they need to move on for their own sake. I would guess any licensed therapist or psychiatrist would say the same thing. But maybe I am wrong. I dont think anyone would tell them they need to find the killer and bring justice...that would be nice but very unrealistic at this point. That's all I ever meant with my post which is why I was surprised by the replies.

    Any thanks to Fudwamper for understanding. You deserve a nobel prize for tarnishing your reputation by sticking up for me for the greater good of humanoty.
