That was probably a wise move, as any jury would be almost certain to find her guilty. She is a singularly unsympathetic character.
Carter, knowing that Roy was depressed and contemplating suicide, had sent him number of texts encouraging him to kill himself, while simultaneously pretending to everyone else that she was extremely concerned about his safety.
She's actually quite attractive, physically. Which got me to idly wondering: when I was younger, had I known what a monster she was, would I have been able to have sex with her?
Most guys, upon seeing that picture, would think, yeah, she's hot, I'd do her! The fact is, all it takes for most guys to be turned on is to see a woman naked. But really, if you were aware that what would turn her on most would be to see you die a miserable death, would you actually be able to complete the act?
Could you remained turned on knowing full well that inside that pretty girl was a hideous monster?
I suppose you could view this as one of those semi-humorous tests of manliness guys will sometimes joke about.
But in a way, it's also a test of character, in the opposite way: are you so insensitive as to be able to ignore the true nature of the she-devil you're with?
(At this point, a fair number of male readers are probably thinking: hey, I've done it before.)
I don't think I could have passed the manliness test.
But who knows, maybe I'm giving myself credit for being a better person than I am.
(And at this point, a lot of female readers are probably thinking, rightly: men are such pigs!)
