It shouldn't make a single bit of difference.

Oh, as per my post, you will need to consult with The Dynamic Duo for the answer to that question.

In this particular situation, I think the crime against elderly isn't being sensationalized becausse there is no group demanding reperations for their grandparent's grandparent's elderliness. Perhaps if you and I put a bounty on the heads of the killers, using totally non threatening words like, "wanted, dead of alive", the crime against the elderly could be sensationalized just the same.

Unfortunately, the media bias, whether it be libtard or ultra conservative is how the "jury of your peers" is presented much of the information in these cases.

How on earth can anyone ever really think they are getting a fair trial?

Someone call the AARP

I agree.. no one is making a big deal out of this so it isn't really hitting the news.
