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.).

Parents Gone Wild! Lisa Jo Vanderlinden pled guilty to the murder of her foster son, Lucas Call; Sentenced to 1 YEAR in jail and 14 years probation! NO JUSTICE for this child


Lucas Call

This poor child received NO JUSTICE. Only the murderer was cared about. It seemed like, however, the Judge’s hands were tied, due to the deal that was made. However, I don’t think he should h ave accepted the plea bargain. If they did not think there was adequate evidence for a automatic conviction, they still should have tried this case. I would rather have seen them give a real chance at justice. She should have received a stiff prison sentence (I prefer life in prison, since this was an INNOCENT VICTIM!).
