The guy who was on trial for child molestation? I'll be surprised if there isn't a riot. He got acquitted today on two of the three charges. The third one was a hung jury, so he gets to come back again in a few months, provided he doesn't plea bargain the charge down from aggravated assault on a child to a parking ticket.
And while he does still face a civil suit even if he should get off for all criminal charges, the man has no money. So he'll basically get away scott-free.
Not sure Diaryland will even post this tonight because it's being so tempermental with me. I have an alternate site at http://www.twisterjester.com/blog/ - just got it working - but not really anything there yet, just trying out the script.
My head's hitting the keyboard tonight, after a loooong couple of days, so I'll sign off and see if this actually posts, then go to bed. I can't get into other people's diaries to read so who knows?
Before - After
In the grander scheme of things, no soul can truly be replaced. Each one of us has a place in the universal tapestry. We each contribute our own color and texture. When one thread is snipped too soon, it distorts all the threads around it. Other lives can unravel and tear. If the wrong thread is ripped away, the whole fabric of life becomes dangerously fragile.
