Incest, murder

This article details the story of an 18 year old woman being tried for murder, allegedly for throwing two newborn infants out a window shortly after their birth. She lived with her father who reportedly abused her several times a week for years, and is the father of the two newborns.

It seems inappropriate to me that she's facing more serious charges than he is. If he was raping her several times a week, possibly even picking her up from school during her lunch hour to do so, and then he fathered two children by his own daughter, I think he's more culpable than she is.

In Vermont, citizens are taking immigration enforcement into their own hands. If they can find the border.

The Washington Post has an interesting article about au pairs and their experience arriving here.

I love how people going out to simply report illegal activities are "vigilantes"--wonder what that would make all the neighborhood crime watch organizations.
