If you don't know, the short and sweet of it is that a girl named Michelle Carter is on trial for murder charges as she taunted her boyfriend into committing suicide.
Much ado and hubbub has been made about this, but the ole Captain is going to boil it down to its two most simple elements so you don't waste any more time on it and can move on with your much more important life.
One, the girl cannot (and I predict will not) be charged with murder because the boy had sovereignty over his own decisions and chose to end his life. He also had the right to ignore the taunts of this veritable cunt at any time. I desperately want to egg people on who do "suicide attempts" because I find them deplorable attention whores who torture those closest to them, but I do not pull the trigger at the end if they inevitably get serious and actually commit suicide. Regardless, if the girl is found guilty that now means we are responsible for other people's actions which opens up a whole new can of worms. A can of worms even the most leftist of judges know not to open.
Two, this is the opposite sex-side of the coin of the false rape claim. We drag boys and men through the courts on false charges of rape, ruining their lives in the process, now we're going to drag an equally innocent (though vile) girl through the legal system and see how she/they (meaning feminists) like it. Of course, instances like this (where a boy commits suicide and was egged on by his girlfriend) are much rarer than false rape claims, but it does for once provide an example of "shoe on the other foot," allowing us to point and say, "OK, how do you think she feels?"
All that being said, it is nice to see a precious little princess go through hell. Most men who are falsely accused of rape did nothing more than break up with a girl, triggering the false rape claim. This girl is an evil sadist who enjoys making other people suffer. It's good to see her squirm, but she should not go to prison.
