In today’s world of 24/7 tabloid news coverage, cable talking heads are always looking for the next scandal. People like Nancy Grace make their bread and butter by ranting and screaming over news-helicopter shots of run-down homes where a tragedy has struck. And the more redneckier those homes are, the better.
A mentally-handicapped man, a crime of passion, and the state-run facility that released him to kill again. A story like this could feed the Grace children for years on end.
During a 14 year prison term, violent rapist Max Cady took the opportunity to learn what letters mean and discovered that his public defender intentionally withheld information that could have exonerated him. Upon release, he stalks the public defender and terrorizes his family before kidnapping and attempting to kill them. So sorry, Nancy. No murders here. But on the bright side, there’s still a rape. That’s pretty good, right?
Now we’re talking. Rape, murder, robbery, an explosion, manhunts, and a police chase resulting in death. Momma needs a new pair of shoes.
