The world watches as a coven of witches supports stripper in court

Apparently, a news story that includes strippers, witches and vehicle homicide is worthy of international media coverage.

Boston Herald reports,

A strip club worker who was backed in court by a coven of Salem witches told police she had been drinking but was fighting off a Danvers teen’s unwelcome sexual advances when she drove into a parked tow truck early Saturday morning, impaling him on a flatbed, prosecutors said.

The teen died.  Ironically, he had a tattoo around his neck that read, “While I Breathe I Hope.”

The Telegraph has this insight on the case —

In addition to working at DB’s Golden Banana gentleman’s club, Angelique Catherine Griffin, 25, is active in the local Wiccan community. The support led her uncle, a self-professed warlock, to ‘hex’ anyone who tired to ‘harm’ his niece.

I don’t have a lot of sympathy for drunk drivers.  Especially those that kill teens.

But here is where I do have some sympathy.

In 2010, there were 10,228 drunk driving fatalities.  I’m sure some of those accidents involved male drivers returning home from strip clubs or bars.  But those stories didn’t make the headlines.

So why does the world care when  it is a female driver who happens to be a stripper and possibly Wiccan?

I hope that the woman is able to get a fair trial and a lawyer who zealously advocates on her behalf.

  1. So agreed. Drunk drivers kill people everyday. Stripper witches…. well that’s a different story.
    Yes, I agree, I hope she gets a fair trial.

  2. I can’t remember how many times I’ve been told by my Christian brethren how much of an oddity I am for hanging out with witches, atheists, Lucifarians, etc. My response to them, (and their occasional criticism), is always the same: They’re people too.

    This case should never have gotten the attention that it has, and I stand in full agreement: I hope and pray that she gets a fair trial. Aside from that, I hope that the media frenzy does some dying of its own, so she can go back to her life without too much concern.

    People in general need to wake up and realize that everyone is different. Everyone differs in belief structure; lifestyle; music preference; tastes; career choices- And that none of these differences EVER make it all right to turn another person’s life into a living hell.

  4. P.S. Thought you might like to know I gave you a nod in my own take on this case. You can find that here: http://wp.me/pqiLJ-16

  5. Interesting article, I agree that it really isn’t the girls fault.

  6. I hope she gets off, it really isn’t her fault.
