    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). 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.). Have respect for those who don't do text messaging or other lingo. 5 - 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. If you have a question or problem with this, please feel free to email me (there is a link to my email above).

  1. So tragic, all mothers need to teach daughters that marriage is hard yes, but also there is bad men out there, abuse is never ok, and you don’t stay with them, if anyone had shared this with Susan maybe she would have left, red flags were everywhere very early, it’s one thing for a woman to choose to stay, but when they stay with children that is not ok, it is there responsibility to get them out. And Susan had family where some women get out with none. I can’t even watch the rest of this show, put something on like this and have almost no where to post. Best of luck and prayers to the family.

  2. I saw the tv program about this family. What a fricking nightmare! Absolute evil. Congratulations to the judge who sentenced the scumbag to life in prison. Courageous considering life sentences are mostly reserved for murderers and child molesters.

    • Not convinced at all that this woman was simply a battered wife. She and her husband both seemed mentally ill.
