Carolyn C.'s comment, June 20, 9:42 AM
I think this speech / article will get a lot of views because she is the spokeswoman for being against sexual violence. Because she is famous, more people will pay attention and this is a topic that's hard to talk about but more people need to be aware of. It's a shame that at times it takes someone famous for people to pay attention to topics like this one, but at least she is gaining awareness. She is a celebrity of substance which is why I respect her, she doesn't use her fame anymore to be a sex symbol, she is putting her fame and money to good use and making sexual violence more aware to the world.
Joshua Matheny's comment, June 25, 4:01 PM
If anything, I believe she lost her sex appeal with age. Not because she became less sexual as a person, but because she matured and realized she could use her power for good. I was not a huge fan of Angelina Jolie during the whole Brad Pitt and Jennifer Anniston debacle, the two of them, Brad and Angelina have worked hard to become humanitarians and I do have to say they have been making some great changes. Carolyn is correct, because she is more famous her words carry farther.

Kristi Gray's comment, June 23, 5:15 PM
Was there a husband or was she single? That was the first question I had. If she was put in jail for her kids not attending school and not the father, then that would be sexist because it is the responsibility of both parents to make sure their kids are attending school.
Joshua Matheny's comment, June 25, 4:07 PM
I laughed at that point Sawyer made as well, it's really interesting that the judge said they had charged her like something that would happen 100 years ago. Obviously this ruling needs to be changed. This article really makes me uneasy because we don't know what the cause of death was. It may have been due to fatigue from stress related factors she endured while being in jail. I find this to be very sad if true. Couldn't the pay be docked from something else? This deterrent strategy doesn't seem to actually help anything as she is not going to be able to help her kids or pay the bills anymore while being in jail.
James Greer's comment, July 1, 5:24 PM
A lot of things came together to create this situation, although I am curious how she died. That being said, she was serving a 48 hour in jail sentence in place of some $2,000 in fines she didn't pay due to some 55 truancy violations dating back to 1999. She had seven children, and clearly could not control them--again, around 55 truancy violations on record. It's not quite a debtor prison--that generally involved working in a prison to pay off a debt; this was more like being paid ~$45 an hour to sit in jail for two days. Still, the law apparently provides room for up to 5 days of jail time per violation--and I think *that* is a bit absurd.

Police: Woman in 2 heroin deaths panicky then calm

Police: Woman in 2 heroin deaths panicky then calm | Gender and Crime | Scoop.it
Tichelman, 26, faces manslaughter charges in California after police say the alleged high-priced prostitute calmly collected her things and left as Google executive Forrest Hayes lay dying on his yacht in November following a heroin overdose. About two months earlier in Georgia, she made a panicked call to 911 as her boyfriend Dean Riopelle, owner of a popular Atlanta music venue, suffered an overdose in their home. Police there also said that, after Hayes' death, she had done online searches for how to defend herself legally after administering a lethal dose of heroin. Numerous social media postings, photos and other articles online suggest Tichelman was pursuing a career as a fetish model and a life with Riopelle â€" one photo posted on her Facebook page shows her displaying a diamond "promise ring" given to her by Riopelle. Photos that accompany her interview show her in sexually suggestive poses wearing a variety of skimpy outfits, including a studded leather jacket with thigh-high fishnet stockings. Riopelle was the lead singer of a rock 'n' roll band called the Impotent Sea Snakes, known for its wild stage shows and sexually explicit lyrics. Online videos show the band performing at a massive music festival in Germany, with members dressed in drag. Riopelle, under the stage name "13," is wearing a long, pink wig, a leopard-print jacket, platform boots and tight pants. Back in Georgia, Riopelle also was known for owning the Masquerade, an Atlanta music venue that is a popular destination for rock, punk and metal acts. An autopsy report listed his death as an accidental overdose of heroin, oxycodone and alcohol. Police say surveillance video from the Google executive's yacht shows Tichelman's next deadly encounter with heroin in California, on Nov. 23.

Sawyer Skiba's comment, July 9, 6:17 PM
This is a truly sad story. When I first heard about this whole incident i was shocked. What kind of person would do this to a cute kid like that? From the sounds of it, the mother was involved also, so I hope she gets what’s coming to her. Either way, at least the man who is to blame is likely going to face jail, it's amazing what a little bit of evidence like internet search history can do. Nobody ever expects to get caught. This is really sad though, at least the child won’t have to grow up in a household where he isn't wanted.

Some kids are pretty dumb. High school boys are very hormone driven but I think very few would risk something like this. It’s sad that this happened, but at least they were caught. I would be interested to see what the punishment for a crime like this is. Kids that age don’t think things through very well, this is just another perfect example of a dumb idea getting kids in trouble.
