There are tens of thousands of homicides in the USA every year - what makes this one so special?
5 wars, massive gov't debt, Dick Tater Prez and what gets reported on?
Casey Anthony. Uh, why?
Tens of thousands? Stats from 2008 were 17,034...... that's hardly 'tens of thousands', it's not even 2 'tens of thousands'. Hysterical gibberish does not help you to be taken seriously.
underreported -laughable figure
True crime is fascinating. This has more intrigue than a Law & Order episode. Also, the death penalty makes it even more controversial.
And yet, it is the actual official figure.... no hysteria, no bullshit, just statistics. Go figure.
Still doesn't answer why this case stands out among the thousands of homicides each year in the USA.
There is lots of stuff going on.
Back during the OJ trial - there wasn't that much else going on.
Why do people care more about the Superbowl than a presidential election? That's America.
I care more about your avatar than I care about a presidential election.
Is that so wrong?
