Pamela Smart Compared to Charles Manson
Last week, we got the news that Pamela Smart will stay in prison probably for the rest of her life. This was her last chance at an appeal.
If you don't remember the story of Pamela Smart, chances are, you're not from around here. In 1990, she, a library assistant at Winnacunnet High School in Hampton, was the mastermind behind a plot to convince her then boyfriend, 15 year old student Billy Flynn and couple of his friends to kill her husband, Gregg Smart. .
We talked about this on the morning show after we found out that she would be staying in jail and we had a caller who compared Pamela to Charles Manson. Manson, like Smart, he said, convinced people to do his dirty work and Manson died in jail. This caller said that Smart should endure the same fate.
According to Wikipedia, Pamela has earned a Master's Degree in Literature and Legal Studies from Mercy College. Although it burns my butt that she was able to get a degree that I had to pay for with my tax dollars, I'd rather have my freedom that be locked up for the rest of my life.
Gregg Smart's family says that justice has been served once again.
