EtcetEraThread The FBI have executed a warrant to enter Brian Laundrie's parents house | RIP Gabby Petito
Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Inflammatory Point of Comparison and Drive-By Thread Derail
I think for me, it's weird that this story has gotten so much traction on resetera. I realize there are a shit ton of true crime junkies everywhere, and that's the primary driver. But stuff I've read in related threads this week had me confused. For example, ACAB is a widely accepted concept here here, yet the moment we find out the Laundries aren't cooperating, anyone agreeing with their stance of staying silent is dogpiled. How dare they do that to the poor girls parents, let the lawmen do their job!! Pro legal rights, except when we are we've got the bad guy. He fled, he's guilty! No press conferences by the Laundries, guilty! A good deal of (justified) pointing out of racist motivations for so many things, but it's a derail if it's brought up while discussing the mystery! I personally think it's a disservice to her memory at this point, she's been reduced to a crime novel victim character in a book we're a quarter of the way through reading, thirsty to dive back in for the next development. There are online tears being shed looking through happy IG pics and loving postcards to kids like she was our little sister. But nobody gives a shit about her. Gotta catch that killer and finish the book I'll leave it alone now, no more derail for me...just so wierd


EtcetEraThread I suspect the allegations against Michael Jackson are probably true, but I still like his music, should I stop listening to it?
Reason User Banned (1 Month): Downplaying allegations of sexual abuse
I don't believe MJ sexually abused children. I believe he had a non-existent childhood and wanted to relive it in adulthood and was enabled to do it for whatever reason. But certain lines were not crossed. As to whether I'd listen to his music if I thought he was doing those things...yeah, probably. I don't really think of the person when I hear a song, honestly. Different story for actors who I when consuming their work. It's weird.


EtcetEraThread 9 year old commits suicide after homophobic bullying
Reason User banned (duration pending): Downplaying the effects of homophobic bullying in a child suicide case, account still in junior phase.
Tragic, RIP to the lil fella. 4 days of bullying though (and that's assuming it was 4 straight days of it)? Have to assume there were other factors at play that led to this...seems irresponsible to pin it on whoever he told his sister he was being teased by.
