Texas is the Worst State in the Union
If you needed any more evidence that the state of Texas is a cesspool of dishonesty, corruption, and vileness, look at this. A Texas appeals court has redeemed itself and it's entire state after the prosecutors in the Yates trial presented perjured testimony. The shrink testifying against Yates (remember Yates, she drowned her children after years of post-partum psychosis?) lied about a Law & Order episode he claimed she must have seen. He was a "consultant" for Law & Order and claimed that there was an episode about a woman who drowned her children and was found not guilty by reasons of insanity. Turns out, no such episode aired. Now, maybe the asshole actually consulted on such an episode, and maybe it was in the pipeline but just hadn't aired yet. Or maybe he's a scum-sucking pig who perjured himself on the stand. You choose.
This whole case enrages me. The woman has one of the most remarkable histories of post-partum depression/psychosis I've ever heard of, and her husband decides that the best thing to do in those circumstances is 1. to continue having children and 2. to have her homeschool them. In a bus.
I'd have drowned the husband, in addition to the kids.
