    • On March 09, 2008, by Anonymous - I am a victim of "CHILD ABUSE" and a victim "SPOUSAL ABUSE."My father was tried and ordered to never return home.My ex-husband was tried and JUDGE GUINNDELYN HIlburn let him go b\c of an answering machine with dirty messages on it and I had "DOMESTIC VIOLENCE" behind me.Later on I found out that the very same judge let another man go for shooting at his wife.Me,personally,wonder what kind of system do we have and if "MONEY" is the "OBJECT" of the game.The answer is "YES!"I think they should "EXCUTE" these people tried for all of the above b\c "PRISON LIFE" is to good for them. They get three meals a day,clothes on their back, roof over their heads and a place to stay. They have it made. They get to watch t.v., lift weights,play games,etc. Its not "PRISON," its THE HOLIDAY INN for them. They also figure that they can do this stuff and sit on "DEATH ROW" for a while, then they are out with a "STUPID ANKLE" bracelet and then they are back at it again. I think they should go ahead and start making a clean "SWEEP" of the "PRISONS"with the "DEATH PENALTY" to get our point across that if you commit these crimes then this is whats going to happen. Then, maybe you will see a change in the world.....As for "CEASAR LAUREN,"our GOVERNMENTMENT should not agree with MEXICO about his punishment. He should be put to "DEATH" as soon as he is returned to this country. It is a "SHAME" and "DISGRACE" to the "MARINE CORP,"and all that it stands for. Its also,a "MAJOR DISGRACE" to the family of this "BEAUTIFUL GIRL" and her "UNBORN SON."For GODS SAKE!" What is this world coming too!!!!She and her unborn son didn't deserve this.I have a daughter in the "MILITARY"and pregnant but shes married also.This hit too close to home for me.I attended the "CANDLE LIGHT VIGIL" for her and I was so upset by whats going on with this case.PLEASE! Find him and bring him back and excuted him to the "MAX!"He didn't think about his son by his wife and what was going to happen to him nor his "FUTURE."B/c why! He didn't care.AS for his wife,I think she should share part of the "PUNIHMENT"as well simply b\c she knew about it and could have stopped it before it got out of hand.I don't care how scared she was, she could have prevented it some how. I think some of his friends knew something as well! It don't take a "ROCKET SCIENTIST" to "DESTINGISH" burnt flesn and trash. So, on this note I close with this,find him, let the family hold his faith in their hands and bring them peace and closer!!! I support them 100%. Bring back the "DEATH PENALTY" and for all of you who don't beleive in it,wait until something like this happens in your family. You will change your mind.I know that alot of you are saying that its cruel,well, did they think about their "VICTIMS" and their FAMILIES? No! So, I say let "JUSTICE BE SERVED."NO more saying, "YOU DO THE CRIME,"YOU DO THE TIME." JUSTICE BE SERVED AND DONE!!!! THANK YOU!!!!

    • On April 11, 2008, by Anonymous - I think his wife is the cuplrit! She is the one who did the deed and blamed her husband. She knew he would have no way out; being in the marines and all. The real truth needs to come out. PERIOD.
