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.).

Sgt. Rudy Lopes II murder 10/11/2000 San Antonio, TX *3 people convicted; Joshua Maxwell executed for the murder of Sgt. Rudy Lopes II*

remembering the victims

Joshua Maxwell and his girlfriend, Tess McFarland, had done a cross-country crime spree, which included the murder of Robby Bott in Indiana. Maxwell apparently married after being arrested, however, she did not attend his execution (I am sure it was too painful for her), but his mother and sister did. So did the relatives of Sgt. Lopes and the mother of Robby Bott, the man Maxwell killed in Indiana.

(I could not find a picture of Sgt. Rudy Lopes, but will keep looking)
