"Illegal Immigrant"[edit]

An immigrant is someone living in a country legally. An illegal alien is not an immigrant. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Semperparabellum (talkcontribs) 07:22, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

Don't split hairs. An immigrant is "a person who migrates to another country, usually for permanent residence". There's nothing about legality there.See illegal alien. Boneyard90 (talk) 17:06, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Citations[edit]

I have included a link to the CourtTV coverage of the trial. This is where most of the information came from. --Signed by: Chazz - (responses). @ 17:06, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

Injustice[edit]

Sarah is unjustly imprisoned and must be freed. Wooyi 22:36, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

Why do yo say that? Did you read all the evidence against her? It seemed pretty open and shut to me. DonMEGĂ|60645 13:49, 13 July 2007 (UTC)
Probably because no one ever explained the existence of unknown male DNA on the murder weapon and at the scene. I think she planned it, but I don't think she did it alone. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.33.21.135 (talk) 08:01, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
Well, even if what you say is true ... that "she planned it, but she didn't do it alone" ... I would hardly say that she's "unjustly imprisoned and must be freed". Sheesh. (Joseph A. Spadaro (talk) 17:46, 8 June 2009 (UTC))

Birth place[edit]

Although I highly doubt sarah johnson really did the crime, for my WikiProject Criminal Biography I added the criminal infobox to her. But I couldn't find her birthplace, anyone knows? Wooyi 00:33, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

Occupation[edit]

Is 'inmate' really an 'occupation'? It looks odd and sort of redundant. I'm leaving it in case this is customary, though.71.63.15.156 (talk) 05:12, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

I agree. I changed it to say: "High school student at the time of the offense". Thanks. (Joseph A. Spadaro (talk) 17:49, 19 June 2009 (UTC))

"Allegedly"[edit]

Sarah Johnson was convicted of murder. When quoting the sentencing judge, the writer should not state that Sarah Johnson "alledgedly" killed her parents after she was convicted of doing so. Please save the term "allegedly" for use prior to conviction. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.144.96.98 (talk) 02:57, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

I agree with that ... I edited the article to reflect such. Thanks. (Joseph A. Spadaro (talk) 17:53, 8 June 2009 (UTC))
