real crimes

Didn't want to add unnecessary comment to the BH post, so I know people in the Fandom gonna hate me but I prefer the U.S version over the U.K one. So I never finished the British one. May I ask why the British over the U.S for you?

Honestly – Lenora Crichlow.

But I do also love what BHUK did with S3 (Mitchell’s downfall), and I consider it to be one of the best seasons of television, maybe ever. It starts with Mitchell facing his victims to save Annie from Purgatory, and honestly, since that episode I haven’t been able to get into most other vampire stories to the point where if I watch like Near Dark (once my favorite movie), I feel like it’s really just… unchallenging. The fact that they treated the massacre as a real world crime and the way that affected the people in his life (who for the most part KNEW he was a vampire yet couldn’t accept the killing because those were real people) was devastating… There has never been a vampire consequence arc like that that I have seen, and I’ve seen a lot of vampire movies. 

But yeah. Annie has been a very majorly important character for me, and to be totally honest, I didn’t love that they changed her race (which was fully acknowledged as mixed Black with a white mother, which is still rare from a US media perspective) in the US version, even though she’s not white.

Youngest School Shooter
The Shooting Of Kayla Rolland

On the 29th of February 2000 in Michigan, 6 year old Dedrick Owens went to Buell Elementary school with a gun he found at his uncles house along with a knife. Walking upstairs whilst changing class, Owens approached fellow classmate Kayla Rolland and said, “I don’t like you” and shot her dead.

Due to his age, Dedrick Owens was not charged with murder

Owen’s uncle, Jemelle James, was charged with manslaughter and served a sentence in jail

The killer gained a lot of female attention due to his handsome looks and charming personality. Some aficionados even went as far as believing he was completely innocent, with one girl saying that Bundy was “too cute” to be a serial killer. Evidently, this couldn’t be further from the truth, as not only did the evidence against him demonstrate someone who was calculated and generally psychopathic, but his confession of numerous slayings across America finally caused people to overlook the superficial charm that had allowed him to win over so many people in the past, including his victims.

Lena, conveniently sittin at a candlelit table for 2:"curses u've foiled me again damn u supergirl!! but the real crime would be leaving this seafood platter unfinished! tell me do u like oysters!! do the right thing!!"
