Things I Don't Understand



I try to occasionally click over to watch the most Evil Person Ever, Nancy Grace, a "former prosecutor" who has a show on CNN.

Well, lo and behold, tonight I check on her and I'm shocked to see the parents and boyfriend of murder victim Kelsey Smith. For those of you who haven't followed the case, she was the young girl from Kansas who was abducted from a Target store parking lot last weekend. Her dead body was found yesterday. A suspect was arrested today.

If your daughter is missing, I understand trying to get in front of every camera possible so as to try and help find her. But one day after she is found dead in a bunch of trees, you want to go on Nancy Grace's show for a freakin' interview? Incredible. I'd be in my bed crying. And don't give me that crap about how people "grieve differently." No one grieves by being miked up and talking to stage directors in an ear piece.

unrelated to the absurdity that is Nancy Grace, but I have a question that maybe someone here can answer because I haven't heard it answered well anywhere else. Regarding the surveillance video of the parking lot where the Kansas girl was abducted: why is it that I can aim my cell phone down the street and take a better video (X10!) than parking lot security cameras? And/or, why is it that my 29.95 webcam takes better photos than the cameras installed by the Southland Corporation in 7/11s?

I just wish before she got sentenced to death the girl would have had a fair trial or something. A person should not be executed for shopping. Killing pretty girls like this does not solve anything. Let's do away with the death penalty for teenage girls who shop at Target, or little girls who play in playgrounds, or ride their bikes alone, or have a mommy that is depressed. Life in prison for these kids, maybe. Where is the outcry?

You are a sick jerk.

Re: Barry
I did not see the interview. However, as a parent I would go on TV to keep the story alive. My goal would be to remind everybody about my daughter's tragic ending. There might be a viewer who would remember a small piece of the puzzle to find the killer.

Barry, After 3 years I finally agree with you on this one. Sorry for calling you an ambulance chaser. It won't happen again. Onward my brother.

I would never agree with women abuse, but Nancy Grace is one that needs to be B Slapped on a daily basis, just to keep her semi brain cells in order, if possible. Could parents be looking for a movie deal? How very sad indeed for Kelsey.

I'm not a fan of Nancy Grace.

Having said that, she taps into victims' rights (and just as importantly, victims' anger) probably more than anyone else in the media today. She probably gives families a sense of solidarity they need. It's an understandable outlet for victims' families.

You want to go to a place where you can vent and talk and not be judged...Nancy Grace will give you the platform. I'm not sure we're in a position to judge.

And while I didn't see the interview, done properly it would do what cheryl said. Keeps the story from being all about the suspect, which happens all too often.

Nancy Grace always looks like she just smelled a fart.

I have to agree that this is a way creepy thing to do after your child has just been found dead. I can still remember how floored I was seeing Rusty Yates doing a press conference almost immediately after learning his wife drowned the kids.
