I believe that anyone who is doing Slander, should be punished. However if it is published in the local news paper and people are discussing it on a public forum then it is not slander, Esp if no names are mentioned. People need to know what happends when you do a crime like slander.

Why are all you illiterate morons even still discussing this? This case has proven that you can say anything you want on topix and you STILL won't be prosecuted since no criminal charges have ever been filed against this woman. And you can't get blood from a turnip.
It's being talked about for the age old reason........community condemnation........punishment need not be formal......Someone who owns a restaurant, for example, might recognize her and decide they don't want her business. Lots of perfectly legal ramifications.
