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. Luv your blogs from a huge bears fan

  2. I just finished watching a tv show about the murder of Shannon Stafford. I think it was brutal and inhumane. I live in NY and we have plenty of killing here – police and criminals alike. This murder was different. This girl came from NOTHING and had NO ONE in her life – all she wanted was someone to love who would love her back. Her daughter was the most precious thing in her life. The story said that her father-in-law LOVED the baby beyond comprehension. WRONG!! Anyone who truly loved a child could never kill the mother of that child, even if the mother was mentally ill

  3. I saw this episode on ID Network’s show “Evil in Law.” The episode is called “Hidden Evil” I believe. Anyway, this story really aggravates me…those people were crazy, not letting her see her own child and basically tying to steal the child for them and their loser son. I’m glad the dad is locked up for life. Wish the whole family was. Tragic.

  4. That family are evil monsters! That deserve no rights to Faith. Shannon’s family deserves that child. They also deserve to win a hugh monetary lawsuit.

  5. Who has custody of Faith today?
