I just have one more opinion about this whole debacle, and then I am finished with it.
I am really REALLY tired of hearing about what a SAINT Travis Alexander was. Reality check--NO, he wasn't. He was leading a very duplicitous life, pretending to be what he was not.
He was scamming people every day with his "job" at PPL.
He was having constant sexual encounters with "inmate 458434" while dating/searching for a pure, wholesome, virginal Mormon woman to marry.
In short, Travis Alexander was what many women would call a pig.
Did he "deserve" to be murdered for this? Absolutely not! But make no mistake, he did play a role in ultimately causing his own death, because he knew--ADMITTEDLY knew--that "inmate 458434" was a "psycho" (his words.) And it may sound terrible, but I don't feel sorry for him.
I DO feel sorry for his family. Look at the legacy he left for them; they got to sit through years of testimony about his sexual activity and deviant things he wanted to do. They got to see pictures of a man they THOUGHT they knew, in ways they never thought they would see him. So besides his death, they have had to reconcile themselves to the fact that the man they loved was really a stranger. Yet they were there, day after day, week after week. THAT is unconditional love. THAT is the true essence of honest people who keep their faith. I cannot help but think, if he could see what this is doing to them, and he had a chance to live his life over, he would be a different person. At least I would hope so. But there are no 2nd chances or do-overs in this life.
And the rest is silence.
