PYMHM Nancy Grace is a Cunt Edition.

This Post You Might Have missed takes us back to 2013 when I saw a commercial for Nancy Grace's TV show and got all pissed off and wrote this blog post.  I never stopped hating that bitch but recently started watching The Murder of Laci Peterson on A&E and she's all up in that shit.  Footage from back then, her talking about the case now.   It goes into what an overall shit-show it was back then.  People still seem to be really into true life crime but in a slightly different way.

 Recently the popularity of true-crime like Making a Murderer and the Serial podcast series still let the average joe froth at the mouth over theories... but without fucking up the case.  Because , just like this Laci Peterson series, and the recent OJ Simpson documentary, they all take place after the fact.  They let you form an opinion after actually seeing all the evidence, what the jury actually saw, and sometimes facts that were illicitly omitted by police or the prosecution.  Often the viewer ends up being sympathetic to the accused party.  It's funny that the same people that want to hang a defendant when the trial is happening live on TV are the same ones petitioning the parole board for their release after listening to a true-crime series.     People need to really consider how the judicial system actually works before they pass judgement.   And like I mention in my original post, the media needs to be reigned in a little on influencing a jury.  The whole system needs to be more impartial. That's how justice is truly had.

Another thing about these after-the-fact true-crime documentaries is that to me, they aren't as much about whether they did it or not, they're about the process. All the shady things done by the media, and law enforcement and the lawyers and the judge that end up with the verdict given.  It's always interesting to see the case from an outside perspective and to see truly what goes on that you never hear about... or the jury never got to see for whatever reason.

Anyway, here's my unfiltered rant as it was posted in 2013.  Minus the youtube clip of Nancy's commercial plus an illustration I just did on my phone.

Armchair Lawyers and TV Truth-Jockeys

It seems like every month there's a new "trial of the century" that we cant avoid.  It's actually creating a market for 24 hour courtroom TV channels.  I saw this promo for Nancy Grace for HLN the other day and it struck a nerve.  

      She says:

"I want to investigate the case, I want to know the truth"   
"It's my duty to ...bring that child home, to solve the homicide, to solve the mystery" 
"I get to make a difference" 

 Shut the fuck up you piece of shit.   It's not your job to investigate cases. It's not your duty to bring children home or solve homicides or mysteries. What you do doesn't  matter to the actual case AT ALL!  There are real people, with real jobs in law enforcement and the legal field who's job that is.  She is making a difference tho, by tainting the jury pool with speculation and facts of a case that may not even be admissible by the judge as evidence. You are actually making their job HARDER you fucking asshole. 

Here's the problem with this bitch, and "courtroom" type news channels; It gets the public so riled up about a case by sensationalizing it to the point where the defendant is not only guilty before proven innocent, but a monster.  Then when the prosecution fails to convict, there's outrage and riots in the streets. 


I think this type of entertainment-news should be illegal.  If our legal system wasn't bad enough! This type of shit is turning every idiot with a remote control in their hand into arm-chair lawyers.  I live with a REAL lawyer and kids, the legal system isn't as flashy as they make it out to be. And sometimes, the bad guys get away with it.  Because sometimes, the police, or prosecution are liars, cheaters, have huge egos or just generally suck at their job.  And when that happens, we all lose. So who's really the bad guy... someone who gets arrested for having weed in their car and a broken tail light, or the police officer that searched the car illegally?  Who cares if government employees violate people's civil rights, as long as a bad guy went to jail right?  This system is in place to protect the innocent, and one day you might be arrested for something you didn't do or illegally searched.  But according to Nancy Grace, because you got arrested, you're the "bad guy" even after the jury says your not guilty.

HAIL SATAN!

I've been making Satan jokes, drawing Satanic symbols and listening to Satanic music since I was a stupid teenager.  Friends of mine back then even got Satanic bibles and wore dark clothing but all of it in my opinion was just kids lashing out and being stupid attention seeking kids.   I never really looked into what Satanism actually was all about, mostly because I just thought it was a bunch of weirdos.  Adult versions of the attention seeking teenagers.  Recently stumbled upon an episode of the Stuff You Should Know podcast that looked at it in an outside, third party non-judgmental perspective.  I learned that if you go way back, Satan wasn't this pure evil anti-god that is commonly known today.  Apparently even in older versions of the bible he isn't really mentioned or that big of a deal. Christianity really likes to rewrite shit to conform with whatever backwards ideology was in power at the time.  So take anything in a bible with a grain of salt.  My biggest takeaway tho was that I'm finding, while there's a bit of dumb teenager aspect to it on the surface,  most of it is very serious,  unexpectedly well thought out and for the most part sort-of appealing to my sensibilities.

Here's what I mean.

The Eleven Satanic Rules of Earth
1. Do not give opinions or advice unless you are asked.

2. Do not tell your troubles to others unless you are sure they want to hear them.

3. When in another’s lair, show him respect or else do not go there.

4. If a guest in your lair annoys you, treat him cruelly and without mercy.

5. Do not make sexual advances unless you are given the mating signal.

6. Do not take that which does not belong to you unless it is a burden to the other person and he cries out to be relieved.

7. Acknowledge the power of magic if you have employed it successfully to obtain your desires. If you deny the power of magic after having called upon it with success, you will lose all you have obtained.

8. Do not complain about anything to which you need not subject yourself.

9. Do not harm little children.

10. Do not kill non-human animals unless you are attacked or for your food.

11. When walking in open territory, bother no one. If someone bothers you, ask him to stop. If he does not stop, destroy him.

Some of this is kind of out-dated or just laughable but most of it is pretty much how I lead my life already.

There's Sins too.  I'm not going to list them all but the first of the Nine sins is "STUPIDITY"  Alright! They go on pretty similarly from there but they lose me when they start talking about Magic. I'm assuming its all metaphor for other stuff, but then again accepted religions of the world believe some crazy-ass-shit too.  But remember, stupidity is a sin. Click here for the list of sins.

Anton LaVey, founder of the Church of Satan has been compared to L.Ron Hubbard and his background is a little sketchy and the imagery is a little ridiculous and in my opinion counterproductive to the message but at it's root, I think Satanism might be the religion I would choose if I had to.  I'm content on being an unaffiliated  Atheist.
