    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.

Parole Hearing Alert: Angela Dawn Fowler

dv awareness

RichardFowler
Richard Fowler

Angela Dawn Fowler only received 13 years for plotting the murder of her husband, Richard Fowler, and setting it up. It looks like she is eligible for parole. I do not know when her parole hearing is, but there is a petition started to oppose her parole (it is not my petition). The link for petition is at the bottom of the link for a letter to the parole board. I hope everyone will sign it. She did not get as much time as she deserves, so she should have to spend every single day of that sentence in prison. It was because of her that Richard Fowler was murdered.

Angela Fowler parole hearing
Angela Fowler has a parole hearing on July 19. She received such a short sentence for arranging Richard Fowler’s murder, I do not believe she should be granted parole. If you want to help, there are two ways to let the parole board know. First, there is a page in the SC parole board website that you can send an email opposing her possible parole.

Oppose Parole for an Offender

You will need this information:
Name FOWLER, ANGELA DAWN
SCDC ID 00331588

Or if you prefer, here is a letter you can print out, sign and mail to the parole board.
