At last...

After too many deaths...

too many snickered jokes...

too much pain...

justice!



Rest in Peace, Angie!

I don't understand this - probably the only person in America who doesn't!

Amen, alan. Amen. Finally some well deserved justice for a very sad case, and a *hopefully* final defeat to the "trans panic" defense. RIP Angie. RIP.

RIP Angie. Whoever she is, I believe she lived as a legend and died left the world legendary.

Good morning, Alan.

Clearly, I'm out of the loop, again, but if you're satisfied, I'm satisfied, 'cause you're a just kind of guy.

I haven't heard this story either, but it sounds like a tragic one. Glad to hear justice is served, in any case. What a terrible time for the family.
We've got yet another case in the headlines here in Boston.

Thank you for bringing this tragic story to our attention. I hope & pray something good can come out of such sadness for Angie & her family. May she rest in peace.

Nice to see justice served, but tragic story still.

Awww man, I need to start watching the news, or reading the internet news, or perhaps even occasionally chatting with someone who has ever opened a newspaper to a page other than the comics cause I think I lost a bit of hair when this post went flying straight over my head. However, since you say justice has been served, I believe it because you have yet to steer me wrong with advice (although telling you that will most likely tempt you to now try, lol.) Obviously a sad, tragic, and dramatic story behind this mysterious picture but I respect your decision to only provide vague details. And I will observe a moment of silence out of respect for someone whom you felt enough respect for to acknowledge with an entire posting (because you earned my respect a long time ago).

Amen!

I'm glad you are feeling better and I'm happy to see the signs of spring around your neck of the woods too. :)

So many who hate are really individuals who are drown in their own ignorance and fear. This was a terrible story. Sadly, there are so many stories like this. Justice may be served in the end, but still loss is loss is loss.

Rock on Brother! Rock on! I so agree. Life without parol is actually a light sentence compared to what Angie and her family got.

It's definitely a step forward, but it's so unbelievably sad that we have to be grateful and celebrate the fact that a human being's murder was actually taken seriously. :'-(
