I wonder if OJ's first draft of If I Had Done It read that poorly.

Spoiler: She never made it to the glue factory.

So he beat the shiat out of her and was then surprised she was hurt so he took the next logical step.  Makes complete sense if you're a murderous asshole.

Wow, a lying dying declaration.

Wasn't her body found near a camp site in a camp ground?
If so why didn't he take her to medical help.

I think his parents wrote that after they put him down.

The only saving grace is that he offed himself after concocting that ridiculous lie.

Gabby Petito was buried only half dead, and after being dug up by a grizzly bear she stabbed it with a K-Bar and now lives in Kentucky and goes by the name Linda Skeens.

I hear she makes a mean non-cucumber pickled item.

I wanted to throw up in the first two sentences. I'm wondering what's deeply wrong with me that I read the whole thing.

I think the word we're looking for here is 'bullshiat'.

My guess is he pushed her off a cliff and she didn't die right away and he continued to panic.

He described lying with Petito, who would get angry whenever Laundrie shook her awake from sleep, he said, because he was fearful she had a concussion

I would get angry too. While a possible concussion needs medical evaluation, the thing about having to keep someone awake isn't true. S

You cartoon is funny, but I want to mention something I learned.  There are guys on youtube who make videos of them treating cow and horse hoofs getting treated for various conditions, and a lot of the techniques they use go back centuries.  Treating a horse, or cow, with a lame or injured foot/leg is actually doable, humane, and the animal will more often fully recover in quit a bit of time.

So now I wonder if the shooting of a lame horse is just a Hollywood trope, or if it is something evil men did, because they lacked to patience to wait a few weeks for their horse to get better, maybe a combination of both.  Sure there are probably cases where it had to be done, especially back in the day, but it seems like there were a lot of options to try first.

Also, if Brian Laundrie is telling the truth, then he showed his girlfriend less mercy than most cattlemen show the calves they are raising for the slaughter house.
 
2022-06-25 9:38:34 AM  
tl;dr "Sorry I killed you, I thought that's what you wanted" is a lame as hell apology.

You need a bit of heavy equipment and strong people to set horse or cow leg. In rural communities, that would have been rare until the 1950s.  You would think a modern horse racing course would have the needed equipment.  You would need a way to secure the hurt and panicked animal, along with lifting the broken limb, enough force to set it and the ability to secure it. Enough 1880s cowhands could do the job out in a field but you would need lots of them and some of them might get hurt.

Pretty much this. I'd add that when a horse breaks a leg the bone usually shatters instead of fractures, so there is also tissue damage to contend with. Even if the leg is set successfully there's a high risk of laminitis in the other legs from bearing extra weight, and it becomes a question of how long to extend the animal's suffering in hopes of a minimal chance at recovery.

That's why even a horse like Barbaro gets put down. He would have been worth millions in stud fees if he had recovered. Most times it just isn't possible even with the right equipment, time, and manpower.

"I took away the pain by killing you" is not a valid apology or defense and is something only a psychopath would do or say.

This is a perfect illustration of the lengths people will go to to lie to themselves. People want to be the hero of their own story.

That's correct.  You're supposed to put butter on it.

"I ended her life. I thought it was merciful, that it is what she wanted,"

Pretty sure, she would have wanted to live.

A bump on the head? And you were scared enough to strangle her to death? You have to love how narcissists always spin things so they're never the bad guy. Everything they do is justified.

He was a coward. And chose the coward's way out. End of story.

I think thoroughbred race horses are the variety which is most regularly treated with bullet injections because of the way they've been bred (possibly caused by some genetic bottlenecking).
 
2022-06-25 2:45:31 PM  
I'd imagine those prancing horse types also face a bullet if they undergo certain leg injuries. But I don't know that

I have ridden for decades and even competed in dressage.

The most important thing is that horses can't really be "bed ridden" (unable to stand for long periods and lie down for days). A reperfusion injury can happen because horses are such large animals and the weight of their body itself can prevent blood flow to certain locations. This can cause severe problems when they try to stand up again, and blood flow tries to return to normal. It can also lead to pneumonia.

How a horse is treated is a complicated determination.

It depends on how valuable the horse is to the owner (financially, emotionally, etc.) and how many resources that owner has (money, nice facilities, good vet, etc).

So a valuable horse with a rich owner can be treated for some pretty severe stuff. Many horse owners are not rich and they need to weigh treatment against costs, including the cost of just replacing the horse.

It's the same for pets. Our cat needed hip surgery and got it at a cost over $1,500. The same cat owned by a low income family would probably not have been treated.

I miss my riding days, but horses are expensive and a butt load of work.


A valuable horse can be treated for some VERY bad injuries if you can afford. The same injuries on an old broken down horse or a horse who's owner can't afford it will be put down.

No there is a lot of minor injuries to the leg and hoof that are treatable, there's a decent number of moderate injuries that are as well.  Most of these have somewhat always been treatable.  Most severe injuries are treatable with fairly calm mild mannered horses if you have a feasible way to support the horse.  There's also a bit of a calculation to it though.  1. Are you willing to pay the time and upkeep for a horse that it's a fairly big gamble that it will heal. 2. For the most part you have to be near a fairly convenient place to  support and keep the horse, It's not reasonable that if you are a few hours ride out into the bush to go get a team of heavy horses, and a wagon, load a hurting and panicky 1,000 lbs animal, unload it then support that animal in a weight bearing harness.  If all that goes right you have a coin flip chance that months from now you will have a decently healed horse. 3.  Horses are stupid and fragile.  As adults they can't lay for long periods without harming their internal organs, they can't get up on their own without 4 working legs.  It's moderately bad for them for extended periods to try and support almost all their weight on 3 legs.  Limited blood supply means the legs heal fairly slowly. They panic very easily as prey creatures,Their first instinct is run and their second is kick, this means they tend to hurt limbs that are injured further.  4. Horses are transportation that requires equal upkeep even when broken. If you look at that money and decide not to invest in the repair you get a decent dinner or two if you decide to shoot it on the spot.

I like that British broadcasters can't NOT call her "Gabby Potato", which allows me to say her name that way because I am making fun of the Brits, and not the girl who was unfortunately murdered.
