My name is Donald Stubbs and my heart goes out to you over this travesty, that I will call, “selective injustice.” There is absolutely no reason for you to be incarcerated over this.This kind of injustice shows we have a long way to go if we are to defeat prejudice and racism that has plagued this country for far too long. This has been mentioned several times and it should be mentioned several more times, until they “get it.” Only in this country can a grown man get away with killing an unarmed child and get away with it while at the same time a mother, who’s defending herself, gets 20 years for it. To make matters worse, she didn’t harm anyone. Unbelievable. So many times, I have wondered how the justice(?) system seems to favor abusive men. I cannot count the number of times that I have seen, read, or heard about a man, who continuously beats a woman and gets out of jail, only to eventually kill her. A protection order sounds good, but it means nothing to any man if he really wants to harm somebody. As men, we should start our own campaign to put an end to domestic violence. Our motto should be, REAL MEN DON’T HIT.” We should tell our next door neighbor that what he is doing is wrong. A real friend should be willing to accept criticism, especially, if it helps him. We should be willing to call the authorities when we hear the, sometimes deafening, screams of a woman. I challenge any man, right now, to stand up and take his place, if he truly wants to consider himself a man. I was raised to treat a woman like she’s a priceless jewel and that is what I have done for 48 years. Somebody once told me that, “Man, sometimes you have to hit a woman.” My reply was, “Well, when is that time?” It’s been two years and I haven’t received an answer yet. Beating a woman to control her, does not make you a man, it makes you a slave owner. After all these years of trying to be released from the cold shackles of slavery, we are keeping ourselves from progressing. When will the ship stop sailing? When will we learn that, women don’t want to be owned they want to be loved. When will we learn that, love doesn’t hurt, love doesn’t put you in the hospital, love doesn’t cause you to “run away”, love doesn’t make causes you to have suicidal thoughts, and love doesn’t make you feel alone. It’s funny, most abusive men will not strike another man. COWARD!! Again, I am deeply saddened by these events. My heart goes out to you and I hope that you can find some common ground. You will find it, in God. Regardless of your situation, God has the final verdict and the final sentencing. Continue to keep Him as your lead lawyer. He will be whatever you need him to be. Continue to let god put you to bed as, He will be the one who wakes you up.Prayer will do anything for you. You just have to believe and stay strong. I would say good luck, but, you will not need it with Him on your side. Thanks for reading this.
