News Rant!

Okay, so we've all heard about the female Marine who had a relationship with her superior officer, wound up accusing him of rape, then was found dead in his yard 8 months pregnant. Well, the entire time they were searching for this girl, the 'mother' was going on TV saying that Maria (the daughter) was a chronic liar and the guy didn't really rape her and she just needed to come out of hiding and tell the truth. This made me so angry when it was going on. Regardless of the background between the mother and daughter, when your child is missing, you need to do everything you can to find her, not go on national television and accuse her of lying, it just makes you look like an ass... especially when she turns up dead.

So now there's this on the news today. Mommy's claiming that Maria's rape allegation against her superior officer wasn't taken seriously, well duh... you didn't take it seriously mom, what makes you think your daughter was going to convince anyone else to take it seriously? I'm so sure that next she's going to sue the Marines for not better protecting her daughter.
