Let me explain how this happened: I needed a break from work. I’ve been working around the clock and I realized that I needed to take some time off after I woke up in the middle of the night in a panic over the idea of getting caught up with my life. When I feel overwhelmed, I shut down and reboot. I’m rebooting. I’m doing that with my version of Snapped.
Don’t know what Snapped is…
In-depth look at the true life crimes of Women Behind Bars.
Here’s some patterns that I’ve noticed:
Some of these women:
- Shouldn’t have been imprisoned. Based on the evidence presented, some of these women were guilty of nothing but weakness of will. It’s stunningly apparent to the viewer. Anyone who watches some of these episodes will admit that there are few women that were falsely imprisoned.
- Were meal tickets, media sensations, or other career-propulsion-systems for lawyers, cops, and anyone else who gets a promotion linked to someone’s demise. Again, this nepotism and corruption is stunningly apparent to the viewers during the interviews of those involved.
- Were better looking than I am. They’re incarcerated but they have noticeably styled hair, access to loud eye shadow, and brown lip liner. A few of them had highlights in their dyed hair. All I could think was, what the fuck does the prison store look like? Is it Wal-Mart, but, like, in prison?
- Started with very bright futures. Their were a few of them with accomplished academic records (including sports). There were a few with genius level IQs.
Most of these women:
- Claimed to endure sexual abuse as very small children but I don’t think most of those claims are true. I do think that many of them were sexually abused as children but the majority of the women who openly spoke about the sexual abuse looked and behaved like con-artists.
- Started having sex a very young age, which surprises a prude like me.
- Started having sex with men who were much older than them.
- Became mothers while they themselves were underage or were completely unprepared mothers.
- Engaged in short lived relationships with their children’s fathers and most of those relationships developed abusive dynamics by BOTH parties.
- Most of these women got pregnant and entirely depended on their male counterpart to take care of all finances. After a couple of years of this, a lot of the men turned into violent partners. Frankly, I completely understand a lot of that rage. I understand that no one should exist simply to take care of someone else.
- Spent a lot of their time looking for “love” or “escape” — a lot of them married several different times.
Some other things that I’ve learned:
- Dentists are in short supply. Lots of cosmetics and only one dentist to service the entire female correctional system niche. WTF.
- Prosecutors love the death penalty. They don’t care if you’re a minor or not. The death penalty means press and press means career advancement.
- Lawyers are like puppet masters. Some of them do a good job. Almost all of them are drinkers of the Devil’s wad.
This anti-depressant came up so many times that I’m convinced that Paxil is the Devil’s wad encapsulated in pills. If nothing else, this collection of stories will help convince people how awful anti-depressants are for our society. Pharmaceutical companies are unchecked, and their unparalleled freedom is an evil.
I’ll probably update this post as I learn more.
