THE QUESTION SOME ARE ASKING: IS MISTY BEING HANDLED WITH KID GLOVES?

DON’T ATTACK THE INSITE – JUST ANSWER THE QUESTION – THEN WE CAN AGREE TO DISAGREE!

Keep in mind I just returned to Houston this week and as I drove in I heard the intense news coverage about Misty Ann Weaver. She’s the woman who confessed to starting the mid rise fire on the North Loop. What I noticed about the radio coverage was the sound bite used by KTRH for Houston Arson Investigator Roy Paul. It came across to me as if he was apologizing for her or as if he wanted to make sure the public didn’t see her in a bad light. He essentially said Misty didn’t mean to do it. He went on to say she had no idea the fire would be so deadly. Now, keep in my mind it was his tone that came across as empathetic to me and others who were listening to the radio sound bite. When I finally made it home from the road I turned on tv news and there was Misty with a protective rag over her head to block the cameras as she was being placed in a police unit. What was that about? It reminded me of a certain Clear Lake woman who was given the same kind of protective treatment. Correct me if I’m wrong but is it coming across as if Misty is being treated with kid gloves after admittedly starting a fire that killed 3 human beings? Just an Insite observation I’m sharing with you guys!
