Gotta love the bloodthirsty mob eh? Seems an awful lot of people just love condemning, convicting people, and crying for blood, long before they hear
any facts at all. Just someone being questioned or arrested is enough to set off the public frenzy.
You nailed it bud. I live in the area, and the suspect (remember here in the US you are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law) was found
walking in the north in the southbound lane of a major highway north of Boston at about 12:30 am at night. This particular highway is 2 lanes, and the
north and south bound lanes are entirely separated by a barrier with no easy way to cross over. So walking down that road had to be on purpose
(speculation: trying to get hit and kill himself?).
Being in this area, and it being near Salem, MA (the same place as the famous witch trials), and reading the vitriol here on ATS, I can see we as a
community have not changed one iota in this respect. People constantly ask how those witch trials could get so out-of-hand, and how they were so
uneducated and blinded by baseless accusations? Well, read the posts here and you will see it first-hand.....even today. almost 400 years later.
A shame really. Please folks, he is innocent, and it is alleged he killed that teacher....we can speculate all we want, but, keep in mind, it is just
that, SPECULATION based upon nothing but knee-jerk reactions and emotion (just like the accusers in the witch trials).
ETA: And those calling for the death penalty, don't be disappointed but, there is no capital punishment in Massachusetts....sorry.
