This is priceless, I wonder how they will respond when in a few years he is in a box after being executed and a job interviewer asks them:
"So in 2013 it seems you were part of the #FreeJahar thing on Twitter, care to expand on that?"

I'll never understand idol worship for celebrities especially those who kill children, but hey what do I know.
Someone really needs to have a talk with these girls. At that age they don't really understand what it means to die, how important each human life is. I'm not saying they should have forced therapy because I believe that's wrong. But the guy they are crushing on took innocent human lifes, he took a child before he could live. When I see this guy I want to spew venom at him. I can't fathom how anyone could feel any differently.

Females are driven by physical attraction.

This whole thing just reminds me on how much the American education and social systems are messed up. What kind of world do we live in that people are either so ignorant or stupid enough to worship someone who could have possibly massacred a lot of people.
On the other hand, I said possibly, because what kind of world do we live in that we do not ask questions, and question authority or the "norms" of our society? I know the evidence is overwhelming on this kid, but there are two sides to each coin, and who knows, maybe he isn't guilty?
Then again, we are all guilty until proven innocent in this country, even if the laws say otherwise.
Researchers at the London School of Economics studied 52,000 people in the U.K. and U.S., and their results were conclusive: Attractive men have IQs 13.6 points above average, while attractive women score 11.4 points higher. “Physical attractiveness is significantly positively associated with general intelligence,” said the lead researcher, Satoshi Kanazawa. The research was published in the professional journal Intelligence. In what many would regard as a controversial perspective, Kanazawa says, “our contention that beautiful people are more intelligent is purely scientific,” adding, “it is not a prescription for how to great or judge others.”
According to Dr. Gordon Patzer, who has concluded 3 decades of research on physical attractiveness, human beings are hard-wired to respond more favorably to attractive people: “Good-looking men and women are generally regarded to be more talented, kind, honest and intelligent than their less attractive counterparts.” Patzer contends, “controlled studies show people go out of their way to help attractive people—of the same sex and opposite sex—because they want to be liked and accepted by good-looking people.” Even studies of babies show they will look more intently and longer at attractive faces, Patzer argues.
Other studies, such as those by K.K. Dion and colleagues and A.G. Miller have found that people tend to think that more attractive people are also happier, outgoing, successful, kinder and have more positive traits. This is often reflected in myths and fairy tales throughout our history.
