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.).

  1. I wonder if Nathaniel Blalock and Duncan Martinez were also students at UCLA, or just 2 roommates that Ronald Baker accepted into his apartment to help him pay the rent. Not that it would make any difference, but it’s probably a good idea to live with other students if you’re a student, rather than just pick up 2 stray dogs. I’m glad Blalock got sentenced to LWOP, but I don’t think Martinez should have gotten the same sentence – perhaps 10 years. He didn’t participate in the murder, and he did become a witness for the prosecution.
