Obviously, this is anecdotal. I am sure there are literally dozens of police officers who did it for the right reasons.

I have been reading about this case for some time. So far the known points are Lori Drew may have been aware that her assistant (Grills) and daughter were putting together a fake MySpace account to "befriend" one Megan Meier. The assistant and daughter exchanged messaged with the Meir girl pretending to be a boy from Florida who was interested in her. After something upset the real life relationship with the Drew daughter and the Meier girl, the daughter and Grills started using the fake MySpace account to send mean-spirited messages to Megan. Culminating in Grills sending a message telling Megan the world would be better off without her.
You may not have noticed, but the only involvement ever mentioned in connection with Lori Drew is that she may have been aware the account was created. She did not herself create the account. She did not herself send messages to Megan Meier. She did not tell Meier to kill herself.
How does this qualify as "Grade-A Sociopath"? I don't see that anything she did qualifies as wrong, let alone immoral, or illegal.
But Dammit! we need vengeance, and we already gave immunity to Grills if she agreed to testify, so...
No. I was actually kind of hoping someone could contradict me. I mean I see a lot of "We know everything this woman did was reprehensible" from blog sites like this, and when I read about it in the Post-Dispatch way back when, then certainly played it off as Drew was directly responsible for the account, and was sending the messages. They later backed off that and started pointing out that Drew created the account, which was backed off to it was a collaboration. Then Grills assistant started popping into the reports.
Basically, the only credible information I have is the linked articles, the St. Louis Post Dispatch articles, and NPR radio. All of which imply that Drew is a horrible person and directly responsible, but none of which has ever even stepped out on a limb to say Drew was directly involved in anything except maybe creating the account.
I just want someone to show me if we're going to burn the witch, do we have more reasonable proof than if she weighs the same as a duck?
Circuit City Stores Inc, the No. 2 U.S. consumer electronics retailer, filed for bankruptcy protection on Monday
... victim to tighter credit terms from vendors and a loss of market share to Best Buy Co, Wal-Mart Stores Inc and other rivals.
Circuit City had lost money in five of the last six quarters. In recent weeks, suppliers pinched by the global credit crunch have tightened terms, sometimes requiring up-front payments before shipping goods.
... a flood of discounted merchandise from liquidating Circuit City stores could hurt Best Buy during this holiday shopping season, said Jefferies & Co analyst Dan Binder.
You know electronics vendors are in trouble when you can pick up a really nice, albeit Vista encumbered, laptop for $500. So goes the rest of the M$ retail chain."
