Charlotte, N.C. (AP) – Jeff Carstensen was spooked when he learned his grandmother planned to buy him a $100,000 life insurance policy – and name herself the beneficiary.

“She told me that people of our stature have insurance policies on each other,” he said. “That way, if something happens to you, you take care of me, and if something happens to me, I take care of you. It was all too suspicious. So I got out of there any way I could, as soon as I could.”

…[The grandmother, Cecilia Flynn,] was charged last month in North Carolina with solicitation of murder in the July 14, 1986 shooting death of her fourth husband, Harold Gentry…..(Full Story) #womensviolence

Can you figure out why people have such short memories, when it comes to women’s violence but such amazingly long ones when it comes to women as victims?

A lot of that has to do with a very pronounced media bias. In 2008, I tried to get to the bottom of that. I collected articles about women’s violence that had appeared in the news, although mostly in the back pages, rarely on the front pages.

Life happens when you had other plans, and although I managed to post excerpts from those articles, comments of various length about them, and so on, to my blog, I could not finish that project.

Still those blog postings still exist, with them often being the only evidence easily accessible of tales of those specific misdeeds by women having happened. I had to do something about trying to determine whether I should delete the postings, or to see what I could do about the many links to them that had gone dead. I am not quite finished with doing that, but during the past two months I did manage to find substitutes for the dead links that lead to articles and reports of things done by members of the tender gender, things that were often extremely bad but recollections of which vanished from the collective memory of society, while the effort to paint women as victims is continuing with ever greater vigor and intensity, never mind all evidence to the contrary.

Why are we seeing frequent remakes of movies keeping the memories of Jack-the Ripper alive, when there is without a doubt a determined effort to erase all memories of equally gruesome and severe misdeeds from history, or at least sweep them under the carpet?

Consider the indicated article, and I rest my case.

    Ga. woman with 5 dead spouses leaves jail

    By BARBARA RODRIGUEZ – 13 hours ago

    RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A Georgia grandmother who came under suspicion because all five of her husbands had died was released Thursday from a North Carolina jail where she had been held on charges in one of their deaths.

    Betty Neumar, 76, posted $300,000 bond late Thursday morning at the Stanly County jail, where she’s been held since her arrest in May, Sheriff Rick Burris said.

    Neumar is charged with solicitation to commit first-degree murder in the 1986 death of her fourth husband, Harold Gentry.

    “I can’t believe they let her out. It’s just wrong, flat out wrong. I don’t understand,” said Gentry’s brother, Al, who pressed law enforcement for more than two decades to get the case reopened….(Full Story)
