    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.
