This story makes my stomach turn.
A brief excerpt of the beginning of the linked article:
Convicted wife-killer Dirk Greineder has been named an officer of the only social club for murderers recognized by the commonwealth – even as he presses the state’s highest court to grant him a new trial.
Now, I actually knew the Greineder family. Colin was my class valedictorian, I had a terrible crush on the middle sister Britt, and I once made snow-cones with real snow with May Greineder, whose head Doctor Dirk bashed in before he slit her throat.
Last I saw, the kids were still asserting their father’s innocence. Guys, if you happen to read this, please accept reality. Your father is a murderer. Just accept it and try to move on with your lives. You deserve better than to be fighting for this asshole’s release. It doesn’t mean you can’t love him; of course you’ll still love him on some level, he’s your father. But what about your mother? She deserves love as well, and to love her, you’ve got to accept that your dad killed her. I’m sorry. It’s terrible. I don’t know what I’d do if I were you guys. But I so desperately want you to be able to accept the fact and start dealing with it…
Ah, hell, I don’t know. The whole thing just makes me sick to my stomach.
