    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 - 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.

Execution Alert: Vernon Madison to be executed tonight for the capital murder of Police Cpl. Julius Schulte – STAYED

Cpl Julius Schulte
Cpl Julius Schulte

Michael Schulte, Julius’ son, wrote this poem:

Remembering my dad.
It’s been 31 years since you were taken from us.
All your grand children are grown and mom is no longer with us.
But, still, the man who took you from us has lived all this time on death row.
But, hopefully soon, that will change on May 12, 2016, he is scheduled to die on death row.
I am sorry that those who give their lives for us in the line of duty have to wait so long for justice to be finally served.”
