She may neve hurt a fly while she didn't seem to mind that 4 people died from her so called prank while she said herself se went home saw the blaze and went to bed. You just can't call arson a prank at 2am and expect it to be believed.

First, the judicial system is not a joke. Maybe you don’t have a clue. Danahey was not threatened. Why do you use that term when the death penalty was an option to her crime, not a threat and the prosecutor could have gone for it. She would have been told her options in the case. You may forget that she admitted guilt. The options went by the book according to the crime. She was given leniency because they used her statement that it was a prank to not go for the death penalty, while I think they should have gone for the death penalty. Tell me supporter, do you think she has learned that fire is not a prank yet? She certainly has not admitted it if she does, while, if she said yes, the next question would be didn't she know it at 23. All I see are the images she can come up with to make her look like she was goody two shoes and fire is fun, even while flipping the bic.

Ashley, I am so glad to know that someone else has seen through the tangled web of crap that has being spun by Janet's supporters. She intentionally set the fire and since that time has spent countless hours trying to shift the blame. Should the two girls who accompanied her that night be held responsible as well?? In my opinion; YES. But sometimes prosecutors must make a deal with the Devil in order to get justice for the Angels. I can only hope that Governor Perdue sees this Petition for Clemency for exactly what it is: another attempt to give poor little Janet another slap on the wrist!!! MAKE NO MISTAKE; Serving only 10 years,for killing 4 innocent young people, IS a slap on the wrist. If Janet has the desire and ability to do so many Great things for society, then I say she is in the perfect place to do just that. Let her serve humanity in a place that surely needs it.

With out going into too much detail, I met Janet D. when she and I were about 14/15. There was an incident that occurred involving a boy we were BOTH interested in. I will never forget how competitive and aggressive she became in her pursuit of him. After I learned of the campus fire, I was shocked but not really surprised. There was something "off" with her when I knew her, and I guess that something is still there.

Jealousy is what comes to mind. The woman or man who says to themselves, no one is going to treat them like that and get by with it. The woman who wants the man and will do what she has to in order to get him. Also, the woman who loses the man and will do what she has to get revenge on him. Revenge can’t be used as a prank while, that is what I see in this case. MOO

RoGue, it amazes me that some actually see this as a prank with no intent. She sure had intent for arson. At 23, how could an adult see arson as a prank at 2 am actually knowing that people sleep at that hour? Many people die in fires that happen while sleeping because there is nothing to alert them. This is something all adults know including Janet. She knew why the cops came after her when she escaped to her parents home. I believe Janet lied when she said she didn’t know anyone died in the fire until the next evening after work. I live here and it was the talk of the entire town. It escaped no one. We knew it at 5 am that morning. Janet lived just around the corner. I cry every time I think about how she went home and saw the huge blaze, along with all the EMS and ambulances that were there and she did nothing but turn away and allow it to happen. I know Christians have put a good front for her while, how much closer to the devil can you be in allowing this to happen. I agree that prosecution made the deal for the testimony, while the two others did get to LE very quickly that morning. Are we to believe Janet would have turned herself in? She didn’t, they had to find her. Yes, this tangled web of crap is very easy to see through. Just ask the firefighters on duty that morning. The LE, the EMS helping all the wounded that jumped from the balconies to save their own life. The people watching and praying that all inhabitants of the building had escaped this monster of a fire created by a so called “ fun loving prank”. It is despicable in my opinion that this petition is not called “a joke”

I know nothing about Janet Danahey, except for what I have read.

Personally I think the Felony Murder Rule should be used more often than it is; however, it is not. A district attorney is required to prove intent of a career felon who robs a store clerk and pulls the trigger, but with Felony Murder, no proof of intent is required.

Perhaps Janey should spend the rest of her life in prison for what she did. Put from what I have read, it is possible that she had no intent.

Why then, whould she get life in prison if someone who without a doubt intended to hurt someone else had the opportunity to defend their actions?

Why does Elisa Baker get an 18 year sentence for murdering and dismembering a little girl, knowing exactly what she was doing, when Janet Danahey possibly had no clue of the trajedy that could have come from her actions.

In my opinion, give her the option of a First Degree murder trial. Let her face the same consequences that anyone would face in a first degree murder trial. Parlole in 8 years if the judge so decides, the death penalty, if that is the decision of the jury, or not guilty, if the district attorney cannot prove intent.

Use the Felony Murder Rule where it should be used. For the assholes who obviously intended to commit a violent crime.

And, finally. Why does everyone assume that her reason for pleading guilty was to avoid the death penalty. Is it possible that she pleaded guilty to the crime of arson is because she was guilty of the grime of arson?

The law was applied correctly. The DA could have ask for the death penalty. It’s an option, not mandatory. The law reads that if you intentionally commit a felony, with no intent of murder and a death happens because of that intent to commit a felony you will be charged with murder. It’s real clear. Janet has been praised as a highly intelligent woman with her superior academic achievements in College. It is not possible that she had no intent. The intent was arson and whatever happened with it. She made no effort to put it out. It is not remotely possible for an adult to start a fire on a windy night, at 2 am, knowing it is a 3 story building, with sleeping occupants, not only lighting the box of decorations, she added the futon, with an accelerant to boot, and you dare say she had no intent except for arson. She is one of the assholes who obviously intended to commit a violent crime. Arson is a violent crime by law and morally. Could you in your good sense or even your wildest imagination do this as a fun loving prank? I would hope not.

The man who was in a boat on the lake in Nebraska DRUNK....and killed 2 young men got a very LIGHT SENTENCE and probation for what he did also.

One would hope that eople would NOT DRINK and DRIVE and put other people's lives in danger....

In mind *WILDEST IMAGINATION* I can not even IMAGINE while anyone would be drinking and driving anything anywhere....and put ANYONE LIFE IN DANGER***

I would hope and pray that NO ONE BUT DO THIS....
BUT THIS KIND OF CRIME, when committed, is a violent crime....this is also BY CHOICE that something like this happens....

The laws DO NEED TO BE CHANGED....don't they?

Maybe the laws do need to be changed or changes made in the laws that exist. Maybe to get the DWI laws up there with the felony murder rule would be the better choice in changes. The felony murder rule law is just, as it is applied to Janet. In North Carolina it has been used in DWI charges where a death occurs. Check out this site that tells you about 2 such cases. In NC. Janet has worked overtime and so have her supporters with the only defense for her actions being “no intent” while she admits to taking an accelerant with her to make sure the fire burns, and extremely confident that someone will wake up and put the fire out, while she runs home and watches from the balcony. Just because four people lost their lives is just a misfortune and should be looked at in that manner. Is that the message these supporters are wanting to send to the public to support abolishing this law? My question is how is she so well believed that she had “no intent”? Is it because she is perceived as such a highly educated, intelligent woman that she could not have done this with intent? http://scholarship.law.campbell.edu/cgi/viewc...

THE bus driver who accidently wrecked the bus in Va....and killed 4 people....I think he got 6 years for killing 4 people....interesting that Janet has served over 10 years....it is sad when some people can do some things and get by with so much less time for doing them....when DEAD IS DEAD....regardless of how they died....yes. I do think the laws should indeed be changed.
