the consequences to our actions

Breaking Headline News on CNN right now is about a young pregnant british woman who is facing a death sentence in Laos for smuggling 1/2 kilo of Heroin. We are being sold on the idea that this woman is a victim …

But she had to have known the consequences if she were to be caught smuggling drugs – and I dont believe the story that she “didnt notice” she was carrying a 1/2 kilo of heroin.

She is not a victim.

I guarantee this is what is going to happen:

she will be freed at the last minute …. she will then be turned into some kind of folk hero, appear on Oprah, write a book, do a movie, make a couple million, spend several million dollars more than she earns … and end up filing for bankrupcy, losing everything she has ……. and in a few years end back up in prison for smuggling drugs again.

I dont mean to come across cynical … but how can the media waste our time trying to sell us that this young pregnant woman is a victim?

One thought on “the consequences to our actions

    Knowing the way the media is hyping and pimping at the moment, here’s the ideal scene 3 in the life of the American Dream Heroin Heroine Queen:

    ….. makes several million dollars more again as the media discovers she has contracted swine flu, is pregnant with the jail warden’s child in the Philipines prison where they are keeping her for smuggling cocaine, never mind the fact that she is a woman, a democrat, but this time…. the remarkable discovery that she is a relative of Obama’s forgotten half-brother in Kenya… and her slave great great grandfather had an affair with the great grandmother of topless Miss California Prejean, proving that Prejean is more democrat than she ever knew…
