That she died awaiting trial is deeply sad for her legacy. A mess indeed.
I feel a bit weird about this one.
Obviously it's tragic, and I feel for her and her friends and family.
I'm uncomfortable with the criticism of the justice system and the press for holding her to account for domestic violence.
One of Mr Ag's friends who has basically ignored him throughout all his recent troubles, is posting all about 'Be Kind' all over her FB. Fuck off hypocrite.
I feel awful for her. Of course I do. But, if she did lamp her boyfriend, her taking her own life doesn’t then justify her actions when she was alive.
While maybe... but BB only ended in 2018.It sounds simplistic to say and I don’t know what the solution is but social media has a lot to answer for. David Baddiel shared part of an article he wrote which brought up an excellent point: zero (to my knowledge) ‘hated’ Big Brother housemates died in this way after the show, one logical difference being the fact that they didn’t have immediate access to hundreds or thousands of messages saying they’re awful and should kill themselves in their pocket.
On the Big Brother front, the wonderful Nadia springs to mind. Although I can't remember what her "downfall" was.
But that's exactly what often DOES happen in cases of domestic violence, due the nature of the relationship. But if there is sufficient evidence, and it is considered to be in the public interest, the CPS will prosecute. And nobody, except those involved with the case (and least of all a tabloid who spent hours previously deleting articles about the alleged perpetrator) is in a position to say if the CPS was right or wrong to pursue a prosecution.That is an interesting read. I just wonder what would happen if the prosecution went ahead with the trial and her partner pleaded with the jury that he did not want the case to go any further. It just seems a bit of a waste of tax payers money.
