The wrong message. She is a rabid enemy of the Constitution and rights of the US. She convicts people via her television show with little evidence and much conjecture.

She has been accused by the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals of ethical violations. In the murder-arson case of WW Carr, the Supreme Court of Georgia said "the conduct of the prosecuting attorney in this case demonstrated her disregard of the notions of due process and fairness, and was inexcusable". Carr was freed in 2004 due to Grace's inadequacies as a prosecutor.

See prosecutorial misconduct, mistrial and investigations by the Supreme Court of Georgia. Getting convictions unethically doesn't count in my book.

If she had that kind of power, Casey Anthony would be sitting on death row as we speak.

I don't love Nancy Grace and I don't hate her either. Sometimes I agree with her, sometimes I don't.....I am just ambivalent about her.

As far as her ethics are concerned......I don't know that she is any worse than any other lawyer/proscutor out there, if you know what I mean.

Exactly, this is from one of the links I posted.
Many of the high profile cases on which she has held extremely dogmatic opinions have been acquitted or dismissed.

Prosecutorial misconduct

The Supreme Court of Georgia has twice commented on Grace's conduct as a prosecutor. First, in a 1994 heroin drug trafficking case, Bell v. State, the Court declared a mistrial, saying that Grace had "exceeded the wide latitude of closing argument" by drawing comparisons to unrelated murder and rape cases.[8]
In 1997, the court was more severe, overturning the murder-arson conviction of businessman W. W. Carr in the death of his wife. While the court said its reversal was not due to these transgressions, since the case had turned primarily on circumstantial evidence, it nevertheless concluded "the conduct of the prosecuting attorney in this case demonstrated her disregard of the notions of due process and fairness, and was inexcusable."[9] Carr was freed in 2004 when The Georgia Supreme Court ruled unanimously that Fulton County had waited too long to retry him, thereby unfairly prejudicing his right to a fair trial.[10]

I'm sure you knew exactly what I meant with that statement.

A friend of Michael Jackson said the Jackson family hated Grace during his molestation trial...but have since revised their opinion of Grace ( she is pro-conviction of the good doctor)!So I think how people feel about Grace is if she shares their point of view or not!

Nope.

She could agree with me on every opinion. The way she acts and publicly convicts people is vile.
