"Yeardley Love, the University of Virginia lacrosse player who was brutally beaten will receive a posthumous degree with the rest of her class, ABC reports."

"who was brutally beaten"?!


Or better yet, rewrite it in the active voice and say WHO beat her brains in: George Huguely.

Dah...she was one day from completing her degree--right? Of course she getting her degree. But why is this the's the obvious; how about reporting more about the lunatic who is the cause of her not being able to walk across the stage to accept the degree? Let's get some reporting on the parent(s) who raised this monster and how their upbring caused the maniac to explode and kill Ms. Love. In other words...where is the beef!! Comon' WAPO, you're really good at pointing the finger at the family and the neighborhood and even the race that caused the "murderer" to let lose on an innocent woman!

Ms. Love should be sitting with her classmates and walk across the platform to get her degree. Instead, she will be buried Saturday thanks to a rich b@stard who felt he could do anything. The needle is too good for this p^ick! He needs to swing from the gallows for a very long time. I have a daughter in college, and this makes me mad as h3ll! The truth is there is no real justice for Ms. Love or her family.

Even if the parents of the accused had sought psychological counseling for their son, there is a good chance difficulties of the teenage years would have been put to blame. On the other hand, after a few major incidents post-eighteen, perhaps society or the university should have taken responsibility, or allowed the parents to intervene. By today's standards, if the parent of a university student shows concern or tries to help their child of legal age, they are accused of interference. Instead well-mannered kids complete with moral values are released to the chaos of campus housing with underaged drinking, late night food courts and sleepless nights. In this case the accused lived in off-campus housing, but rest assured the behavior began freshman year. The obvious conclusion is related to privileges. The university is able to keep a player from the field as a deterrent - if at all possible.

What if?
