    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.).

Monsters Among Us: 7-year-old Zaydanielys “Zai” Rodriguez Irizarry was hit by a bullet shot through her apartment wall; Three men who were drinking and causing trouble were arrested


Zaydanielys Rodriguez Irizarry

I will continue to update this post as charges are brought. Remember, they are still sorting evidence out and submitting the charges. Personally, I think they should all be held responsible for this innocent 7-year-old’s life being taken. They were drunk and playing around with the gun AND there was 2 sexual assaults. This was not fun and games.

Drexelle McBride murder 7/15/2002 Shreveport, LA *Alisha J. Disotell pled guilty to manslaughter, sentenced to 30 years hard labor in prison*

remember-the-victimsFrom Disotell’s appeal: The matters of record show that on July 15, 2002, the victim, Drexelle McBride, was found shot to death in his van on South Lakeshore Drive near the American Legion Post which he frequented.   Investigation disclosed he had last been seen drinking heavily at a Shreveport bar in the company of Disotell.   Disotell, whose record reflects a prostitution-related offense, was at the bar for the purpose of engaging in prostitution.   When the victim and Disotell left the bar, the victim said Disotell was going to drive him home and that he would pay for her cab back to the bar.   The following day, detectives located the suspect, Disotell, at a motel near the bar.   Defendant claimed the victim had tried to rape her and that she shot him in self defense.   However, the victim’s wallet was never found.   Disotell had not  reported the alleged attempted rape, but had called a third party to drive her from the scene of the homicide.
