    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.

Hae Min Lee murder 1/13/1999 Baltimore, MD *Is ex-boyfriend Adnan Masud Syed innocent or guilty? Should he get a new trial?

Hae Min Lee
Hae Min Lee

I do know and understand that many people believe that this case is a wrongful conviction case, however, here on my blog, the victim – Hae Min Lee is the real focus. She is the one that needs to be remembered. It does not matter if you believe Adnan is innocent or guilty, please don’t forget Hae Min Lee. Comment all you want, but you need to mention her as well. Please remember that she was a human being who was brutally murdered and did not deserve what happened to her, no matter who did it. Her family and friends love and miss her every single day. So please be respectful.

**Update 6/30/2016** Adnan Syed will get a new trial. A date for the trial has not been set yet.
