She stood up to her perp and despite an unbelievable run through the courts, he was convicted. That piece of shit Brian David Mitchell was found GUILTY and will go to real prison. The jury saw through it. I feel somewhate jealous because where were the troops for me?

But though she is female, all survivors can feel empowered by her actions. This guy was not crazy, he was avoiding work and child support. On the side he was abducting and raping little girls. I can't believe grown adults trained in psychology, especially the ones supposedly treating and determining when these guys are released as "no longer a danger" bought this guys act. That part is real scary

Good for her.

If we were cute white little blonde girls with wealthy pillar of the temple parents like her we'd have the troops on our side as well.

What was really damaging and chilling was the string of former molested step children and he was convicted previously of flashing an 8yo girl as a 16yo boy. The prosecutor called him what he is, a run of the mill narcisistic paedophile that used "crazy" behavior at will to get what he wanted. The scariest part is that it took until the age of 49 before he was seriously prosecuted for any of it.

I say again the average perp has over a hundred victims in a lifetime. Jail one perp forever now, or a hundred of his victims later.

After the guilty verdict, Smart gave a wonderful speech to reporters. She talked about "giving hope to victims" who have not yet spoken up about their abuse.
