...a "tree hugger, a bicyclist, a Frenchman and a gay guy...
Woman Kills Man in DUI Accident, Laughs About It With Friend

Judge Calls Phone Call "Breathtaking In Its Inhumanity"



Melissa Arrington, 27, who killed a bicyclist in 2006 in a drunk driving accident, was recorded in a jailhouse telephone conversation with a friend named Little Joe, laughing when he noted that she should get a medal and a parade because she had "taken out'' a "tree hugger, a bicyclist, a Frenchman and a gay guy all at once.'' The judge who sentenced her to nearly the maximum 10.5 year in prison called the conversation "breathtaking in its inhumanity,'' as the victim's family sat in the coutroom. Arrington's attorney said that those are not her true feelings and noted that sometimes when you're in jail "you'll talk to anybody.'' The prosecutor in the case said he had no idea where the pair got the idea the victim was a homosexual. "It is my understanding that he's not,'' he told ABC News.

"You'll talk to anybody..." explains that kind of bigotry about a victim?

Un-freaking-believable!

1. The truly mind-roasting part:
There are millions more just like her. All around us. Our politicians actually listen to them, too.

2. Little Joe should be convicted for blabbering like a Hate-Mongering Republican Freeper!
Little Joe is, hopefully, of such low IQ that he somehow fails to make it to the polls every time!!

NOT Laughing!
