Few actually hate Martha Stewart. However, many loathe her as the manipulative, abusive, sociopath she is. It isn't hard to understand, when you consider all the people she's left devastated in her tsunami like wake over the span of her career.
Some are actually waiting patiently for her demise, hoping she suffer the most lengthy bleed out, flesh decomposing throughout her barely breathing body, gasping for air only to find the stench of her own rot in her collapsing nostrils.
Others are much more compassionate, wishing her only to be stretched out on a colony of fire ant mounds in a hotter than a tanning salon desert summer sun.
Many she had once called friends before her timely, predictable betrayal are not quite so compassionate.

when one breaks the law, one must pay the price, but that does not mean we should conduct this virtual lynching which has characterized much of the comments extant here.
In addition, it would be well to at least present the facade of "innocent until proven guilty." After all, what is it that makes us a nation set apart but our sense of justice. He who would approach the bar seeking equity must first have clean hands.
