A Small Rant

I can't stand when the family member of an accused offender talks about what a "nightmare" it is to be in the scenario. Especially when that offender is being arrested for possibly kidnapping and killing a person.

Oh, you think you have it rough? So you claim your family member is innocent and having him arrested is a nightmare. If he is innocent, he should be able to prove it, right? No sweat. He is alive. You can probably talk to him through a plateglass window in prison. He didn't do it so he'll be back at home soon enough.

How about the family of the victim? The girl who hasn't been seen in months? How about before you open your mouth and complain about how HARD this all is, you think about her family and what they are going through.

I'm not saying that being targeted and arrested in front of tv news cameras isn't challenging for the family. But it drives me nuts when an offenders family tries to get sympathy from the public because someone was arrested.

Give me a break.
