Courtsey of KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS . . .
Check the link and notice that Oct 1, 2012 is the earliest possible release date for the young woman who is now 23 years-old.
Real talk . . . While TKC stands for justice and public safety . . . I'm also wondering if it would be out of line if I asked for a date.
Anyhoo . . .
Esmie Tseng's mom killing sparked a bit of controversy given that there were more than a few people who rallied to her defense and wanted her to avoid any jail time at all. In the media, the case seemed to draw sympathy for an Americanized teen claiming emotional duress and didn't really show much concern for the immigrant lady who did not conform to typical JoCo parent passivity.
Sadly, all of this went down before The Battle Hymn Of The Tiger Mom was popularized and able to provide a bit of insight (and possibly create more stereotypes) regarding a certain aspect of Asian parenting style.

From The Pitch: Is Esmie Evil?
And in the final analysis, this killing and possible parole reminds us that we have moved into a digital era that is redefining our culture. Esmie's blogger rampage was a sign of the times that would be tragically repeated by young people throughout the nation in various forms. Also, online sympathy and political lobbying via the Internet mark this case that continues to set trends.
