In news that shocked no one, Brian David Mitchell was found guilty on Friday of federal kidnapping after the jury deliberated for 5 hours over two days. I’m surprised it took that long, but after a more than month long trial they needed to go through the evidence and consider his insanity defense. He faces life imprisonment.
Elizabeth gave a lovely and poised press conference after the verdict. I watched it and spent the whole time thinking how does a person go through a 9 month ordeal where they are kidnapped and raped every day and end up like this? She should be a motivational speaker. Write a book. Something. Watch for yourself below.
Except I suspect she will say her belief in G-d got her through and well, let’s just say I struggle with that one. After watching her, if faith can get you through that, I need some.
