    Mitchell's lawyer argued that he should receive a lighter sentence because Smart is a "survivor" and hadn't suffered "extreme psychological injury."

    Her lawyer should join him in prison for making such an argument. Because Elizabeth Smart turned out to be a very big person, a person capable of moving on with her life rather than folding like a house of cards, somehow the crime is less horrible?

    Break it off in your ass, Mr. Mitchell.

    Well, that would have set a fabulous precedent.

    "Your honor, the victim died, but left a good looking corpse. Hardly a mark on him. We therefore request a lighter sentence due to no bruising, holes or otherwise visible evidence of how my client took his life. Whaddaya say?"

    I think Elizabeth Smart is so brave. Her statement was perfect and I'm glad she seems to be handling this the best she can with all the media attention...it can't be easy.
    here I am, rock you like a hurricane.
