Dr. Phil Show Bails Out Teen Felon

It's good to see that Dr. Phil helps all kinds of people; especially those videotaped violently kidnapping and beating another teenager.

BARTOW, Fla. (AP) — Employees of the Dr. Phil television show posted bail for a central Florida teenager jailed for taking part in a videotaped beating of another teen, a spokeswoman for the show's host confirmed Saturday.

Staff members of the talk show helped Mercades Nichols — one of eight teens facing charges in the case — post bond this weekend, "Dr. Phil" McGraw's spokeswoman Terri Corigliano said in an e-mail.

"We have helped guests and potential guests in the past when they need financial assistance to come on the show — assisting with clothing allowance, lost wages, accommodations, travel and necessities," Corigliano wrote. "In this case, certain staff members went beyond our guidelines (re the bail being paid)."

Oh, isn't that just the cat's pajamas? If you have seen the video - it's despicable - then this story should outrage you. Apparently, it outraged the court, because the teens will be tried as adults.

The teens, whose ages range from 14 to 18, face kidnapping and misdemeanor battery charges. Three also face a felony charge of witness tampering. The state attorney's office says all will be tried as adults.

They are accused of participating in a violent beating of another teenager, which was videotaped and has now been viewed widely on national television and the Internet. (H/T - USA TODAY via Other Kev)

And that piece of garbage McGraw thinks bailing out this criminal piece of filth is a good idea? Nichols is not a troubled teen with a heart of gold; she's a conniving thug scumbag, that planned and participated in kidnapping and assault.

Justice would be better served if this filthy animal was locked in a cell until her trial date.
