    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). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 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-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.). Have respect for those who don't do text messaging or other lingo. 5 - 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. If you have a question or problem with this, please feel free to email me (there is a link to my email above).

  1. Why couldn’t they have just finished off these 8 men first…then put the new law in effect? What a slap in the face for the victims’ families. I believe that everyone of these men deserve to die, but instead, they are now celebrating rather than dreading having to pay for their behavior. Justice was definetly not served here.

  2. This is way over my head. If I’m pissed, imagine how the families feel. This is just wrong.

  3. i latasha goodman the 6 yearold gurl that got killed by david cooper. i am her oldest sister , and because of him my life is fucking different . i have three gurls now and i am so scared to go places by myself wit them , i have to have someone there wit me . i miss her so much . how can a killer really look at a judge and say u didnt mean to do it . 15 years now and i still miss her like crazy . the worst thing is i removed back to the same town she got killed in . but now it’s time for me to put the pieces together . this killer deserves to die not to live . his living good , eatting , watching tv. what a fucking life and all i am doing is wishing my sister was here to see her nieces get older . thanks for messing up my life killer i hope he rot in hell
