One of my experiences that relates to you is one of my good friends that I knew about half of my life is dating this girl and they have been dating for a good 5 years. One day his girlfriend calls him and tells him that she doesn’t want to date anymore, then he starts threatening her how he’s going to kill himself or overdose on drugs and hurt her if she does not change her mind. One day when they see each other, he pulls her to the side of the group I was in. Moments later I see him slap her, so me and my friends sprung between them so he doesn’t hurt her. So we start arguing that it is not tolerable and is hurting her more than he thinks. That was one of my experiences in a domestic violence scenario.
I don’t think that you should have gotten 20 years just for threatening somebody. I personally think that’s unfair, so stay strong and keep your head up.
Hi, my name is Danny, 18 years old from Brooklyn, NY, and I am writing you from jail. I read your article and I literally felt your pain. In my eyes I believe you did the right thing because a man that hits on his woman does not deserve to breathe. You should’ve left him from the first time he put his hands on you. It hurts me when women get abused by their man because in my eyes women are our pride, our everything, so they deserve everything. But it’s crazy how the judge could look at you and your case and sentence you to 20 years in prison. But then again they got the killer of Trayvon Martin walking free on bail. It’s just something about the system in the US that bothers me. I think it was made for blacks only.
One day you’ll be home and you should get an appeal. I feel so sorry for you and you’ll forever be in my prayers. Just sit tight, pray to God every day because he’s the only one that could help people like you.
You deserve your freedom, you’re not a criminal, you just a beautiful woman that deserves a real man in your life.
I honestly feel you are innocent. You didn’t shoot to harm, you sent a warning shot to prevent yourself from getting harmed. What’s really confusing me is the fact that George Zimmerman BEAT TRIAL for murdering Trayvon Martin and they feel he “stood his ground,” which is not a fact from my perspective. I believe the differences between their skin colors played a huge part in the situation (case).
