Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, January 07, 2019

As one of his final acts in office, Tn. Gov. Bill Haslam, granted clemency for Cyntoia Brown. Brown, who has served 15 years in prison for killing a man who beat, raped and forced her into prostitution when she was 16 years old, will be released in August and will be on parole for 10 years. Gov Haslam had the following to say, "Imposing a life sentence on a juvenile that would require her to serve at least 51 years before even being eligible for parole consideration is too harsh, especially in light of the extraordinary steps Ms. Brown has taken to rebuild her life."

Sorry, but I consider pimps to be sub-human and helping that scum achieve room temperature a service to man kind. I hate pimps almost as much as crank and heroin dealers- many times they are one and the same.

"Subhuman." Has a familiar ring to it...

Anyway, what's your opinion of a guy who purchases the Miss Teen USA pageant for the purposes of walking around the girls locker room to inspect the 14yo merchandise?

What the hell? Shouldn't she be given a high civilian award for killing a rapist pedo?

We should be celebrating this woman and killing more rapists, not punishing people that clearly act under self defense.

Presumably that's an equivalency, so your opinion is Trump is no better than Clinton?

How about their parties, are Republicans no better than Democrats, or are Trump and Hastert the exception, while Clinton and Weiner are the rule? ;)

To be crystal clear Boaz, you firmly believe that such people should be allowed to own guns.

So, you're obviously okay with it.

See how honesty works?

AUGUST 2004
Nashville real estate agent Johnny Allen is found naked with a gunshot wound to the back of his head in his Mossdale Drive home. Brown, 16, told police he picked her up at a Sonic Drive-in. Brown said she was a teen prostitute and shot Allen, 43, because she thought he was reaching for a gun under his bed.

AUGUST 2006
A jury convicts Brown of first-degree murder and robbery.

OCTOBER 2006
Brown is sentenced to life with the possibility of parole. State officials said the law dictated that she serve at least 51 years before becoming eligible for release. Prosecutors pushed for more time because of aggravated robbery and other factors in the crime.

On the night of August 6, 2004, Brown, then 16-years-old, met Johnny Mitchell Allen, a 43-year-old real estate broker and United States Army veteran, in the parking lot of a Sonic Drive-In on Murfreesboro Road in Nashville, Tennessee, a known red-light district.[7] Brown agreed to have sex with Allen for the price of US$150; the two ordered dinner and Allen drove the two of them to his home on Mossdale Road.[8] At some point during the evening while Allen was sleeping, Brown shot Allen in the back of the head with a .40-caliber handgun she carried on her person and stole from Allen's residence US$172 in cash, several firearms, and a vehicle, a Ford F150.[9][10] She then drove Allen's vehicle to InTowne Suites, to meet her pimp.

Wait a minute. She wasnt convicted of killing her pimp as most on this thread are alluding to. She killed an innocent man and robbed him, stole his vehicle and took it back to her pimp. She had many times to alert police if she was being held against her will. She shot this man in the back of his head.

Regardless of her pimp, she still should have known what she was doing was wrong. Now that I read this, I understand why she got life. I feel she needs to serve at least 20 years before she is released.

As usual, the main stream media isnt releasing the whole story..

Sorry for my mistake on the details of this case. As Boaz stated, it was not her pimp she killed. It was someone who paid her pimp to allow him to rape her.

LMFAO.

But in contradiction to what Boaz stated, it was not the media to blame, it was my misreading of the story. And the man she murdered was not "innocent". Far from it. He was participating in the sex traffiking and rape of a 16 year old girl.

Unless they are Muslim. But that's eight, not 16. Also, they need to be genitally mutilated.

Innocent criminal justice systems don't try 16 year old rape victims as an adult.

Rape isn't actually condemned by Republicans, especially if it results in pregnancy.

As the old Republican saying goes, "Rape babies are gifts from God."

Second Black Man Found Dead at Home of Ed Buck, Democrat Donor.

Wehoville reports law enforcement has yet to release the identity of the deceased male who died in Buck's West Hollywood apartment. Buck was investigated -- and later cleared -- following the death of Gemmel Moore, a young man who died of a drug overdose at the 65-year-old's home in July 2017. Following Moore's death, Buck has been accused of having a "fetish" for inserting drugs into black men he meets through dating websites. Before his death, Moore wrote of Buck injecting him with drugs during their encounters.

Local activists have said the Los Angeles Police Department declined to press charges against Buck due to his sizeable financial contributions to then-California Gov. Jerry Brown and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton."

I wouldn't put it passed you right wing nutters to kill people and place them at the homes of prominent democrats. All your accusations end up being parallel to your actions.

Ok, I guess "innocent" was too strong a word to use.

But then again, what did this man do to cause this woman to shoot him? Why did he deserve to die other than he had a nice car and money she wanted to give to her pimp?

I dont doubt her sad story of being controlled by a Pimp. But her actions are separate from that. She deserves to still be in jail for killing this man. Maybe not for 40 years as she was a child, but she still needs to be punished more because she knew right from wrong.

Boaz,

She suffered from alcohol fetal syndrome. It wasn't until she was in her 20's that she had the mental cognition of a 14 year old. She was raised in foster care and became a runaway in her teens. She was living on the streets, was picked up and controlled by a pimp who whored her out and forced her to take drugs. The man she killed "purchased" her and raped her.

I think she deserves a second chance at life, given all of the circumstances surrounding her killing a child rapist. She was 15 and 16 when all of this was going on.
