I am Shocked
Alex Murdaugh is going to prison
Just when I think everything is corrupt and there isn’t justice in this world, a jury in South Carolina deliberates for three hours and then is like, “Alex Murdaugh is guilty AF.”
The three-ring circus that was his trial is finally over and he’s going to prison for life.
The other day I said I didn’t feel sorry for Paul and Maggie, but that isn’t true anymore. Today I feel a real sense of sadness for this family. A mother and her son were murdered by someone they trusted and thought loved them. But men murder women they love all the time, so I guess it isn’t that surprising. But it is still very sad.
Alex is a raging narcissist and coward and this is completely his fault. I don’t know if his actions were a result of decades of privilege or if he was born this way. Either way, it was shocking to see that no matter how hard he tried to lie and cheat and cry his way out of punishment, this time his crimes finally caught up with him.
That jury saw right through him and his act.
Were you surprised?
Watched the Netflix documentary and felt Alex M’s past was catching up to him just when he murdered his wife and son. I think the only person who couldn’t see the writing on the wall was Alex.
yep. completely surprised given his wealth and whiteness. i’m still convinced he’s going to Cupcake Prison but time will tell. i do feel sad for the victims of his murder-y narcissism. most people have the right to live (i’m iffy on people who commit crimes against kids or kick dogs) and we can’t know what kind of lessons they might have learned or what positive impact they might have had on the world. or, maybe they would have been selfish jerks. who knows? as a pal of mine once said, “even assholes have a right to be here.”
