  • @shortstack930 One of my friends just got back from 6 weeks in St. Louis and discovered chic fil a is full of hot mommas. Is this true ??

    For me, DF has barely spoke to me in two days. Very annoying. It's over something SO stupid. Usually I would be initiating conversation but I am definitely not this time. He will either open up or get the F over it.

  • @FLAshley haha that is probably true! It is definitely SAHM hang out during the day, especially since they have the play place. Although tonight it was me and DD and like 30 teenagers that must've just gotten out of a high school sporting event. I felt bad for the manager because he looked torn between trying to provide excellent customer service and running away with his tail between his legs. 

    Also, I'm sorry you're fighting your DF! Hope he comes to his senses and talks to you soon.

  • @adirat I completely agree with you regarding the Casy Anthony trial. I spent more time then I would like to admit following that case and although I 100% believe she did it, as you pointed out there just wasn't enough real evidence to find her guilty. Although it pains me, I think the jury made the right decision based on the way the judicial system is set up to work (as crappy as it may be).  

    I was too young to know all the details about the OJ trial so I will have to watch the show sometime!

  • @kiwi2628 @adirat I would highly recommend watching the real OJ documentary from ESPN called OJ Simpson Made in America. It was really interesting, but incredibly brutal and graphic in parts. It's a 5 part series that are about 1 1/2 each.

    @kiwi2628 You know, it's funny -- had the exact opposite reaction after watching the show. I was technically alive during the trial but I was a little kid and paid it no attention. All I really absorbed was the cultural consciousness of white people that he definitely did it and got off for no reason, like it was a punch line to a "bad jury" joke.

    After watching the show, though, I thought he absolutely had to be found not guilty. I believe that he did it. I don't believe he's innocent. But with the police incompetence involved in the investigation, the fact that a white supremacist cop was targeting him, the whole glove incident -- it's all reasonable doubt. While I personally believe that he did it, I also believe that our justice system has to abide by the standard of reasonable doubt and in this case, his acquittal was appropriate. 

    I had a similar reaction to the Casey Anthony trial. I believe that she did it. But you can't try someone with no murder weapon, no cause of death, and no rebuttal to the defense's alternative theory of the crime and expect the jury not to see reasonable doubt. It is vital to Americans' freedom that we hold our criminal courts to these high standards and as sad as it is, that means acquittals when the police or legal team screw up. 

    Anyway off my civil liberties soapbox now! It's a great show no matter which side you come down on.


    H and I have arguments all the time about the rule of reasonable doubt because he's more "fry 'em all" and I'm more "show me the evidence." I just keep quoting to him "Better 100 guilty men go free than one innocent man go to jail."

    I was a freshman in high school and my choir teacher found a TV that we could watch the verdict on.  Our choir room wasn't fitted with a TV like most other classrooms.  
    It's sad, I also remember "Where I was when the verdict was read," it truly was a defining moment in our generation, until 9/11. I was in pre-algebra class. Someone went door to door, telling each class the verdict.

    Sidenote: Thinking of that reminded me of my teacher for that class. She as an old lady who used to touch the boys inappropriately (shoulder squeezes, punches on the arm) and everyone hated her.

  • @haylsbayls, I know you didn't ask me, but I have very strong opinions about the Amanda Knox case and I spent far too much time reading about it, lol.  

    In my opinion that case was the biggest farce of a criminal trial I possibly have ever seen. How the prosecutor was even allowed to try the case is beyond me (not least of all because he was under investigation for tampering with evidence in a different case while the trial was ongoing). That whole ordeal made the Italian court system look like nothing better than a Kangaroo court.  I personally don't think she did it, but even if she did, there was just too much wrong with that case for any reasonable person to have found her guilty (except, apparently, for the Italian jury...).

  • @haylsbayls I actually don't know anything about the Amanda Knox case. Should I look into it? I was a freshman in college during 2007-08 and definitely didn't watch the news, ever at all, that year. Then during the murder trial in early 2009, I was doing study abroad in a country that had zero media coverage of that case. @zwink1 It does not really surprise me to hear that the Italian justice system is crap.

    @wabash15 Sorry :( It was 1995 so I was six. Definitely not up on the national news back then. 

    @jsnakehole I hope you feel better soon and there's no penalty for staying home! 

    @eggplantface Yeah, that's what 9-11 was like for me... I was in seventh grade I think and it was...insane.

    @lulu1180 I was in seventh grade with the OJ case and I'm shocked they put the tv on in the library for us to see it. 
    @jsnakehole I hope you feel better!
    It's funny how it's the little things in life that mean the most...not where you live, or what you drive, or the price tag on your clothes... There's no dollar sign on a piece of mind, this I've come to know! *ZBB*
