    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. Come onnnnn Myrtle. You’ve been married to this guy for how long?? So he wants a little nooky, and instead of saying no, you kill him?? Mental abuse?? Why not just leave his a**? Mental abuse is a good reason to leave your husband, NOT kill him.

  2. OHHH Shauncey. How could you be so blind? You obviously don’t understand the cycle of abuse and how a victim is distorted by the abuse. I am a distant family member and know a little about the situation. You would be better off leaving your caustic remarks at the door and consider being humble enough to know that you really don’t know. I agree it’s hard to understand why a person doesn’t leave, but I’ve never been in a situation of being physically and emotionally controlled by someone who was mentally ill himself. (His father tried to shoot and kill him as a child after killing his brother but he escaped by hiding in a loft. His father then killed himself.) Paul was quite disturbed. We would all be better off to practice some compassion and deal with our own close relationships (if they’re healthy) with gratitude and thankfullness. And leave these poor people alone. They’ve suffered more than you can imagine!
