    Please remember when leaving a comment on my blog that all comments are subject to the blog owners discretion. I do believe in freedom of speech, however, that right is not absolute. Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc.
    3 - Please remember to not use all CAPS or capitalize the beginning letter of every single word or every other word, or use IM/text abbreviations (except like LOL). Please have respect for other readers and type words out. Not everyone is into that and it is inappropriate here. [examples: "cuzn" "tha" "dat" and so many more] Learn proper English! You should have learned it in school.
    4 - Your comments must be all in English, using proper English, too. No huge run-on sentences (use punctuation). Pretend you learned something in English class.
    5 - I will also not allow Anonymous comments. This includes using anonymous, obviously fake email addresses (you@you.com, me@me.com, anonymous@yahoo.com, or fictional characters, etc.)
    6 - ALL COMMENTS LEFT BY COMMENTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND THEIR OPINIONS. THEY DO NOT CONSTITUTE FACTS. NOR IS THE BLOG OWNER RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYONE'S OPINIONS OR FEELINGS. STATEMENTS MADE AS COMMENTS ARE OPINIONS, GIVEN FREELY BY THE COMMENTORS.
    7 - You must be 18 years of age or older to comment.
    If you have a question or problem with this, please feel free to email me (there is a link to my email above).

Monsters Among Us: Brooks John Bellay raped and killed 4-year-old Angel Ann Halstead – now he wants parole; Please help stop him from getting out of parole

Angel Ann Halstead
Angel Ann Halstead

In August of 1979, Brooks John Bellay raped and beat to death 4-year-old Angel Ann Halstead. He confessed to his horrendous acts. But now, he wants parole, to be out in the free world, where it is possible, if not likely, he can hurt another child. There is a petition that will be given to the Florida State Parole Commission to let them know that society does not believe he should be parole. I urge everyone to sign this. He was given a life sentence and should serve that sentence to the day he dies. He should never be allowed to be released where he could hurt another child, or any adult for that matter. I have signed this petition myself and truly hope that everyone else will, too. And urge anyone else you can to do the same. Please remember this 4-year-old child and the life she lost. Remember her family and loved ones and the child they lost. They deserve to be able to have justice and peace.
