Sara, I love that quote, “Despite the modern facilities, is was another ‘mom and pop’ jail.” It makes you wonder like what really makes a jail a mom and pop jail.
Demi, I agree, Ann Rule was very clever to think like Ted Bundy at the time.
The actor did a wonderful job portraying Charles Manson. The maid at the beginning was hilarious. And Susan Anderson was a weirdo, I believe that she wasn’t under the influence of Manson, she was just a crazy person.
Morghan, I agree with you about how the rebellion was sickening because they were killing people in their sleep. But with this is the first sign that we see in history that people think that slavery is bad. Without Turner’s leadership we might not be where we are today. We might still have slaves.
Lindsay, I was struck by the fact that they made her eat the excrements. It was very odd to me. I think it shocked us because this is the first time we are seeing this kind of abuse.
Demi, I noticed that too, after the rebellion, the slaves that were killed were twice as many as the whites were killed. I think that is ridiculous! Although, the Whites participating in the executions were trying to scare the slaves back into line so there wouldn’t be another rebellion.
I thought that it was funny that there was just the list of the crimes committed. Like it was something they would just add at the end of their whole story.
I also agree with you about how the author wrote down so much bad stuff about Rachel, and I think it’s because the author was only in the perspective of George’s testimony. He only was recording what George was saying about Rachel, which was a lot of bad things.
Abigail, I agree with you about Mrs. Whipple going over the deep end on trying to murder her husband. She tried a lot and was unsuccessful. Doesn’t she get the hint?
It is very cool to see all the connections throughout the different readings!
