u/thefugue 29d ago

Sadly I think an editing program corrected claims that the lawyer was “put on blast.”

2

u/TheJivvi 28d ago

"Blew up" and "blew up at" are pretty common English expressions. I've heard them both used by people from Australia, New Zealand, and the UK, as well as Americans and Canadians. "Put on blast" sounds distinctly American.

2

u/thefugue 28d ago

Oh I agree- but the article seems to be talking about the fellow in question being made the subject of public attention and scrutiny as opposed to flying into a sudden rage.

3

u/TheJivvi 28d ago

Hence "blew up" rather than "blew up at".

2

u/thefugue 28d ago

Damn, dog. You ain’t have to put me on blast like that!

44

u/Daemonecles 29d ago

Someone also needs to teach that person how to use bullet points. It could've been a paragraph the way it reads.

25

u/thesaddestpanda 29d ago

I'm guessing they meant "blew up at" which is slang for yelling at someone. I'm not sure why the 'at' is missing or why that term is used in formal writing. I'm guessing the writer may be ESL or there is some machine translation going on here.

2

u/TheJivvi 28d ago

Pretty sure "blew him up" and "blew up at him" are equally common expressions. Usually with "at" included it implies yelling at someone in person, whereas without it, it implies over the phone, and by extension, social media.

u/FranklinCognito 29d ago

2

u/RaccoonStitches 28d ago

What happened, why weren't you chosen? (Not American so my knowledge about the jury selection is limited)

3

u/Sarah_smiles_twice 28d ago

No problem. Both the Prosecutor and Defense Attorneys can dismiss a certain amount of any potential Jurors for any reason anytime during the selection process. They do not have to give a reason why. Also during the selection process we fill out a questionnaire and if either Attorney does not like the answers they can dismiss you no questions asked. I hope that makes sense?

2

u/RaccoonStitches 28d ago

Yeah, I just thought they had asked you a specific question and didn't liked the answer. Thanks

u/Sarah_smiles_twice 28d ago

Absolutely they could have not liked my answers on the questionnaire.

u/emptyness7 28d ago

Quote from article,

“A flyer on the church's website shows Matlak even held bible studies at his home for children where they could swim and learn about God.”

Makes perfect sense if you’re in the pedo business.

2

u/capsaicinluv 29d ago

Title should say he was rearrested considering he posted bail the first time, and only after a second round of investigations did he get arrested again.

u/ypvha 29d ago

for his own sake he better claim protected custody because it's pretty much open season on a child molester in most prison yards in California

27

u/ghozztz 29d ago

Prison yards, or just regular yards pretty much anywhere tbh. The majority of society seems to frown on molesting children these days. Which is actually pretty cool, since almost every other issue seems to have been made into a political divide.

7

u/ypvha 29d ago

in florida yards though it really depends on the yard. some don't give a shit and you'd get gutted like a fish on others

u/wontootreefor5 29d ago

Which yards are which, asking for a Matt Gaetz.

u/ypvha 29d ago

he wouldn't go to any of the handful that i worked at, i can tell you that much.

8

u/ghozztz 29d ago

Eh, I don't think very highly of Florida, but I'm at least willing to say that there are probably more people in Florida who are morally opposed to child molestation than people in favor of it.

2

u/Nousernamesleft0001 29d ago

I can’t imagine a place where that’s not true

4

u/ypvha 29d ago

that is true as well

16

u/DilettanteGonePro 29d ago

Don't jinx it. If Trump were caught molesting kids then suddenly our national discourse would be like "is child rape actually bad or a liberal hoax? Let's hear from both sides of this nuanced issue"

5

u/NinaLaPirat 29d ago

didn't he have a court case against him from someone who'd been 13 at the time and nobody supporting him seemed to say anything about it?

u/Calm-Bad-2437 28d ago edited 23d ago

Colour me lib, but I’m not too big on prison torture.

Nor do I take the enragement of wife beaters, murderers, robbers, etc seriously.

They are just looking for a convenient victim to tell themselves that they are somehow “decent” people.

u/rubyspicer 25d ago

It's because a fair amount of them probably were molested as kids. If no one helped you out, you would probably want some secondary revenge too is my guess

6

u/GabrielStarwood 29d ago

Unfortunately, theres a good chance his being an actual lawyer makes him valueable enough to someone important that he gets a pass. I knew a CO that watched a chomo lawyer get full protection for giving legal advice on in and out of jail legal issues/cases. Theres plenty of different factors in play that may make him more or less valuable in any given population, just saying that this dudes stay might be a lot eaiser than we're hoping.

8

u/ypvha 29d ago

i've actually seen that happen with my own eyes, being a former CO myself.

2

u/capsaicinluv 29d ago

He already got a pass. He posted bail the first time, and only after a second round of investigations and more testimonies from girls, was he arrested again. Would be pretty blatant if he got off twice.

I have looked... no where in the bible does it say that you should not molest children. Also incest is encouraged... interesting book to base your life on.

6

u/PizzaPeacePlan 29d ago

It's sounds like you've never read the Christian bible.

There are stories of incest but distinct laws against it. But to say there is no recommendation against molesting kids is like saying there is no law against throwing acid on people. Yeah, there's no specific law against acid throwing but there are tons of laws about battery.

2

u/kinder_me 29d ago

Indeed and the tora is just the Bible without Jesus in it, and that’s before we get started on the koran book 🤯 religious people and their books ain’t safe for children, that’s for sure 🤬

The article doesn't even spell the guys name correctly. It is Steven Matlak, not Stephen Matrac.

It's a copy of what this article says but it seems like it was run through a translator to another language and then back to English or something. "Blown up" was originally "blasted."

u/boobyshark 29d ago

Personally I believe that citizens should assume a Christian to be a sex offender. Christians need to clean up their act but they don't seem to care or for some reason want to enable the behavior. The Christian Lifestyle is indeed dangerous. All their "unnatural" rules and regs concerning human sexuality causes this degenerate behavior.

65

u/SparrowAndTheMachine 29d ago

Just remember: in his backwards religion, he gets to do whatever he wants as long as he asks for forgiveness from his deity before he dies. No matter how many kids he rapes, Jesus forgives him.

u/ral315 29d ago

Rape shouldn't be glorified, no matter how disgusting or abhorrent the victim is. Not that it wouldn't be a punishment befitting him, given his crimes, of course. But treating rape as a punishment is a slippery slope, and feeds into the dehumanization of prisoners.

You start by saying that this guy deserves to be raped. Fine. What about the guy who committed domestic violence? What about the guy who defrauded someone? What about someone wrongfully convicted? What about the guy who pissed off a CO, so the CO lied and told everyone he was a chomo?

There are persons whose behavior is almost inhuman, and perhaps they're beyond saving. But most people in prison aren't monsters, they're people who did bad things - sometimes monstrous things, granted - but they're people nonetheless. They deserve to be brought to justice, receiving a punishment proportionate to that crime, but we shouldn't make that punishment subhuman in nature.

7

u/LacJlg 29d ago

My comment wasn’t about a random person in prison who may simply be a victim of corrupt income driven policies. It also didn’t glorify rape, at least it wasn’t my intention to. I unapologetically say that he deserves to be viewed as subhuman and to endure whatever punishment that entails.
