    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.

  1. My husband and I watched “I’d kill for you” the other night. At the end they reported that “Tabitha” has had a sex change! They showed a mug shot of her as a “him”. I am very opened minded and approve of someone becoming who they are meant to be…. But my questions and concerns about this situation is: she did this while in Prison???? And who Paid for it? And what all has she/he had done? Does this make sense to anyone?

  2. I had the same thought. Where did she get the money from for the sex change operation and also they allow this in prison ? And why did she have it anyway

  3. From what I’ve learned a while ago, sexual reassignment surgery In prison is totally paid for with OUR tax money. I was astounded when I first heard this. But, apparently there is no cost to the prisoner. They can get their bachelors and masters degrees in prison so I guess it’s not too far fetched. It does disgust me, though, to clearly see where our states’ priorities are. Not sure if the surgery is legal in every state yet, but where it is legal I believe the transition is paid for for prisoners.
