  1. After watching the Mind of a Murderer “Under the Influence” interview with Francis Gibson, I was sickened by Gibson’s glib demeanor. She could barely contain her pride describing attacking, tormenting and killing Jennifer Rado. When Ward asked her how the other women in prison react to knowing what she did, she smiled and said, “Well nobody messes with me here.” I guess Ward actually thought she might be ashamed like a normal person. Ward also described Gibson as “conflicted” but she was only conflicted because murder has consequences. She enjoyed showing her neanderthal husband that she was capable of violence too. Oh she realizes she still loves him- how sweet. When Ward asked Gibson if she had remorse she said, “Yes Jennifer’s family must hate me” but that isn’t remorse. She lamenting that she hasn’t seen since her children since her confession and as she wiped her eyes said, “People will see crocodile tears” but like most sociopaths, she can only cry for herself and she actually thinks that is evidence of humanity. Only her pain matters. God knows what her children have seen already but given the opportunity she would have sold them to a pedophile for drug money. They are so lucky to be rid of her and if she had any real love for them she would be happy that they escaped. Francis Gibson is missing more than just most of her match stick teeth. Our tax dollars should not be wasted on her upkeep.

  2. I’ve been a close friend of Frances. Since she moved to florida when we were around 11yrs old. What she has done is unforgivable. I’m surely not giving excuses for her lack of sympathy towards her acts against Jennifer Rado. People have to understand after talking and dealing with any subject sooner or later it becomes just another conversation. Like talking about the weather. She knows what she has done is horrid and can never be taken back. She is talking about appealing her case. Not for the reason that she was a lighter sentence just the opposite. Shr is looking for the death penalty. Her poor Momma Sue passed away last year. That was her last connection to her beautiful daughters. She feels that if she cannot have them in her life, she doesn’t want a life.
