Jerry Remy is responsible for Jennifer Martel being brutally killed. And Dennis Eckersly is a better Red Sox announcer.

No. Jared is repsonsible for that.

They were an idiot and/or probably did a lot bad things in their life.

Because mommy and daddy pleaded, pulled strings, made promises that they couldn't keep ...

Remy enabled a murderer. Multiple fucking times. Jerry's repeated enabling of his pwecious widdle murderheaded drugfucked son created the sort of entitlement and the reduction of consequences that should have made him an accessory.

Jerry and not the system that allowed him to do what he did as a parent? The system is supposed to be objective and unbiased, neither of which I expect of a parent when their child has been accused of any wrongdoing.

Because the system did not bail out a violent criminal 18 times. Jerry Remy did. He has blood on his hands.

We have a system that favors domestic abusers over their victims.
As Brian points out, you can’t expect a parent to be objective and unbiased. Jerry Remy may have been a jerk but he was not responsible for the murder committed by his grown up adult son.

Being "objective and unbiased" is a very high bar, agreed. A much lower bar is refusing to further enable a person whose behavior is harmful to their self and to others. It's damn hard, but people do it, and it should have been done in this case. Failing to do it is not the same thing as wielding the knife, but it is reasonable to assign a measure of blame to those who enable harmful people.
