    It Is OK Because Oprah said so

    Winfrey helps man apologize for murder

    February 1, 2007
    BY ASSOCIATED PRESS

    DETROIT---- A 21-year-old man freed from custody for a murder he committed at age 11 has apologized to the victim's family, with help from Oprah Winfrey.

    Nathaniel Abraham, who lives in Bay City, traveled to Chicago with the intent of appearing on Winfrey's TV show Wednesday. But the taping was canceled at his lawyer's request.

    Hours before the planned taping, Abraham met in Winfrey's private office with the family of murder victim Ronnie Greene Jr., 18, whom Abraham shot with a rifle in 1997.

    Abraham lawyer Daniel Bagdade watched the exchange and said Winfrey ''kind of mediated the apology.''

    ''It was very riveting. Nate's story was not on camera today. We ended up doing the apology in Oprah's office. It was incredible. It was absolutely incredible,'' Bagdade told The Detroit News.

    Winfrey's Harpo Production Co. said Bagdade revoked Abraham's consent to appear on Winfrey's show.

    Abraham was 13 when an Oakland County jury convicted him of second-degree murder. He finished serving his juvenile sentence Jan. 18.

    I'm really not surprised that Pedro watches Oprah!
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    How touching. Bets on how quickly this guy goes back to jail?














    Pedro, man card. Now. Give it here.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    man card...
    ROFLMAO
    http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    Whoa. On this side of the Lake you could get shot for calling someone that...or at least get pummeled heavily.
    We do,however, like Da Bearss.

    i guess youll spend tonight watching the lifetime channel and having a "good cry"
    in the warriors code there's no surrender, though his body says stop, his spirit cries...NEVER. deep in our souls, a quiet ember, knows its you against you, its the paradox that drives us all. its a battle of wills, in the heat of attack, its the passion that kills, and victory is yours alone.


    the posts and opinions stated by me do not in any way reflect the values, beliefs, or views of my department. they are simply opinions and/or observations which have been developed through my personal experiences. hell, most of the stories probably arent even true...wink wink

    ooohhhhhh Oprah once talked about 'tossing the salad' on her 4pm show.. She sucks donkey nuts. BUT she is the QUEEN so she can do or say what she wants to...
    A monday morning lunatic, disturbed from time to time. Temporary catatonic madman on occasion..

    Lightning crashes a new mother cries, her placenta falls to the floor. The angel opens her eyes,the confusion sets in before the doctor can even close the door..
    The views and comments of E-man are mine and mine alone and therefore might not reflect the views of others or people in my current department. As such since this is still America I can post what I want without fear of retribution. I think.

    RIP Eric

    You know I have never picked on pedro.....although I have seen it done quite a bit........but I have to say I am really offended about him watching oprah, and I believe he should appologize to all men and should have his man card at least suspended for a period of time....
    Any Post I make is my opinion only!
    I do not have the authority or the permission to post for my Sheriff's Office.

    Where does it say that I watched the Fat Unshaved Armpit womans show? It was in the news paper that she allowed some murderin scumbag on to apologize to a family and that she thought it was ok he did the crime since he apologized. I have never watched Oprah, I think Rosie is a whale, Dr. Phil likes it in the rear, and I do love the Bears.
