While I think this is great news, we have to be reminded that this isn’t over yet. There are still going to be denials and lies, and I’m still waiting for them to blame the victim. More as it comes! Update: Well, that didn’t take long…

I was thinking more of blaming the victim in the legal defense, as that is a classic strategy for abusers to blame their target for the abuse.
UPDATE: Yet another lie by the #FreeKate crowd?
Sheriff’s spokesperson Thom Raulen added, “Tonight at approximately 9pm, Kate Hunt was brought into the county jail by a representative from the bail/bond company which had posted her bond. This was not a result of judicial action but rather done at the discretion of the bail/bond agent.
But, at the same time, the local media article is titled
Kate Hunt turns herself in to Indian River County authorities
I’m sure that this will get cleared up, but the content of the story implies that Kaitlyn may not have had much choice.
Doug Hagin takes his shot at the situation as well. Has inspired a cheer of some sort!
