Altruistic Punishment

Happened to be on Slate today and saw this article about Amanda Knox and altruistic punishment which made me, unfortunately, think of your situation. many of you I know are somewhat resigned to this fate already and either accept it with a sigh or have an F*** 'em attitude. For those of you who think the lawsuits or trials will make everything right again, it looks like, based on this example, you may not get that wish.

I do also wonder if some of the dislike of her is similar to what I think is at the heart of some of the PSU loathing. Namely a bit of jealousy, in her case her looks and UMC upbringing that allowed her to study abroad. Penn State, meanwhile had a renowned football program that was known for doing things the right way.

Not really anything groundbreaking here, but as I said, I saw it and thought I would share and see if I could ramble enough to make it a fanpost instead of a fanshot.
