DA: Wife Killed Husband After Finding Hickey

MEDFORD (CBS) – A woman was ordered held without bail Monday charged with killing her husband in Medford.

Police found 34-year-old Troy Burston wounded outside a home on Exchange Avenue at 10:40 p.m. Sunday.  He was not wearing a shirt and had been stabbed in the chest.

He was rushed to Lawrence Memorial Hospital where he died.

WBZ-TV’s Sera Congi reports

Police arrested his wife, 39-year-old Shawntina Burston.

Investigators say the two had come home from a party and began arguing and hitting each other.  She allegedly found a hickey on his neck and stabbed him with a cooking knife. 

“This is another troubling incident of domestic violence turned fatal,” Middlesex District Attorney Gerry Leone said in a statement Monday.

“We allege that the victim was fatally stabbed by his wife during an argument, sadly leaving two young children behind.”

Shawntina Burston pleaded not guilty at her arraignment Monday in Somerville District Court.

    I’m shocked they arrested her. After all, she is a woman. Women are permitted to murder men and they are usually never held accountable for their actions. If it goes to trial, which I doubt, she will, of course, claim “spousal abuse” and then she will be set free.

    1. may says:

      obviously you don’t watch forensics programs. they have as many women going to jail for killing a spouse than men. sorry you dislike women so much.

      1. DamagedGoods says:

        You base your beliefs on TV programs?

        Good Lord no wonder this country is in the shape it is in.

        @May it doesn’t mean he dislikes women. It means that he dislikes the legal system, which he percieves as biased toward women. And, you are clearly un[der?]educated if you think that what you see on TV is part of any semblance of a reasonable critical thinking process. If you graduated High School, go to college. If you went to college, you were cheated. Go to a real college.

      6. Matt says:

        That’s what they show on T.V. In reality Bentoo is dead right.

      7. Frank says:

        Has nothing to do with not liking women. It’s the truth. Women get away with murder, figuratively and literally. They kill their children, and women’s groups feel sorry for them. Even the women who DO go to prison go for much shorter times than men. It’s a fact. Just because you are a woman who doesn’t want to hear the truth….open your eyes and see reality, not what you want to see. If you have doubts on this, read the stories on angry harry’s webpage. angryharry dot com. Guys like us don’t dislike women….we’re just tired of the abuses that women are getting away with….like affirmative action. That is government sanctioned discrimination against white men. And let me guess, you think affirmative action is anything other than liberals abusing men?

        May, here’s some actual statistics:
        “81% of wives but 94% of husbands received a prison sentence.

        State prison sentences for wives were about 10 years shorter than for husbands.

        “Victim provocation” was more often present in wife defendant cases: 44% of the time, wife defendants had been assaulted by their spouse or threatened with a weapon immediately prior to the murder, whereas this was true for only 10% of husband defendants.

        Excluding life and death sentences, the average prison terms imposed on 6 years for wife defendants (7 years for unprovoked wife defendants) and 16.5 years for husband defendants (17 years for unprovoked husband defendants), or an overall average of 13 years.”

        seriously quoting tv shows as defacto evidence of fairness in
        sex biased murders? Is this what our idiotic society has come to?
        Two children with no parents, lost and you are quoting forensic shows??

      What a stupid post. Of course women are also held accountable for their actions!

        Right. Just ask Fracnes Fox Piven.

      3. Gene says:

        Dorothy why don’t you follow the case in florida. This dumb broad killed BOTH of her kids because they were talking back. Son supposedly talked back to mom so she shot her 13yr old son in the head. She goes home and while her 17yr old daughter was doing her homework on the computer she shoots her in the back of the head. I bet she doesn’t get charged with 2 counts of first degree murder, just watch. The womens groups will come to her aid and say she was depressed, maybe even reach and say she has post pardum depression after she birthed them, anything to get her cowardly ass off.

      u got some major issues….

    11. tcs says:

      Bentoo, where have you been? Women are arrested for murder! Hello, Duh?! And they are often convicted. Further spousal abuse or battered woman syndrome is not an excuse for murder but can be presented as an affirmative defense. Most defendents need a defense and/or present one. And it isn’t an automatic walk if she claims that. Maybe self defense but still not an automatic walk.

      U sound really stupid right now! Wow! And for the person who says the forensic shows are just tv…. check ur facts idiot! These are actual cases!!!!! Sometimes when people don’t know… they need to shut the hell up! I get so sick of these women/men haters out here! You all sound frickin ridiculous!!!!! Get lives people! It’s soooo obvious u just want to be heard! Geez!

      1. Al Sharpton says:

        Boy, don’t want to be your spouse right now, how’s the PMS.

        What they are trying to point out is that TV Shows tend to pick the juicy cases where women get big sentences. It’s boring TV to see time and again a women getting a lighter sentence.

        So get a life, you are a little too abusive in your responses and a fine example of someone that needs to calm down.

    15. Maine T says:

      I Knew Troy personally And he’s not The type to hit women. I Also Know The Wife Personally and not taking any sides but she was very controlling me being a person that hung with Troy everyday me and 3 other friends have witnessed it ourselves. Constantly calling his phone to the point he be upset, She’d even call our phone 100 times for Troy and have us mad. Not trying to make her as a bad person but i’ve kept her away from my women because she tried to have my girl spy on me and my girl came back and told me. She Also Is Known to Drink And Get Violent With him i can get at least 20 people who seen her hit him wit a bottle in his head on New Years Eve. He did nothing, troy was not a violent person at all. He didnt have to do anything he had people like me who didn’t mind getting in trouble and he would always stop me. He Kept me outta trouble and he was younger. This is not to bash anyone but to clear up any ideas of troy being a women abuser or any type of thing like that. It’s All Nonsense.

    He ran into her knife. He ran into her knife 10 times.

      all i can say is…poor kids

      1. Mope A says:

        @brirae yea i agree that situation could have been easily avoided i just don’t understand how a woman could stab her husband just because he had a hickey on his neck, i would have just kicked his ass out but, at the same time there could be more to this story that we don’t know yet.

    So what- not newsworthy!!!!

      1. justwaittilfebruary says:

        Well said!

      2. i think there’s more to this story.

    2. G says:

      There is more domestic violence perpetrated by women but they never reach the media unless they are fatal. Poor kids

  4. Trebor says:

    Should we have Kitchen Knife Control Legislation, ala Gun Control ? After all, knives are deadly weapons?.

    1. Rick says:

      Don’t laugh; doctors in England began campaigning for just such a law after incidents of stabbings rose. They rose because they outlawed most firearms for self defense, hunting, etc. Now it is illegal there to defend yourself and use an offensive weapong; a club, stick, fist, etc to defend yourself.

      1. Getthepoint? says:

        Bloomberg will send some goons to a flyover state he hates and have them purchase illegal knives, at NY expense.

      2. klesb says:

        Yes, they wanted to remove the points from all knives! The Muslims said “Fine! We don’t need pointed knives to slash throats anyway!”

      There should be a waiting period and background check to buy a kitchen knife:)

    4. w p says:

      Are those knives registered ? Does she have a permit to carry?

  5. Obvious says:

    We need knife control !

    1. revolverBoy says:

      That’s right. I’m surprised the cororate media is even bothering to report on a violent death that didn’t include the use of firearms. To have most corporate media representatives and politicians tell it, outlawing the private ownership of handguns would result in universal peace and tranquility.

  6. Tom Tucker says:

    He should have just axed for a cookie instead. Cookies can’t get cha in trubba!

      i am only saying something bc its my step brother and it should have made the news
      she was def wrong and it should be known!!!

  7. Paul says:

    Where did you get that statistic? Not saying it isn’t true, but that sounds like a shocker if true

  8. Robert Frost says:

    10 day waiting period for knives.
    Criteria for knife ownership:
    1)Psych evaluation.
    2)No hickeys on spouse/significant other.
    3)Has to be 14 days prior to or after muenstration.
    4)Have to take Knife Safety Course.
    5)Can’t be married or hooked up with a thug rapper, or wanna be rock star.

    1. lula says:

      Cameras in the kitchen with feed into the police station should do the trick. Plus the knife should have a quick disconnect from the handle and an alarm if one grabs it the wrong way.

      1. Squiggy1 says:

        And child safety locks.

  12. Ray2447 says:

    Women’s domestic violence against men is grossly under reported, while male victims are still routinely being ignored by the taxpayer funded domestic violence industry. Credible research overwhelmingly shows that the ratio of domestic violence is at least 50/50 between women & men. Go to Fiebert Bibliography. According to one study by researchers who work at the CDC, in 70 percent of domestic violence incidents, where the d.v. is not mutual, it’s women who initiate the d. v.

      Finally, I was beat to a pulp by my ex wife and they didn’t want to charge her because ‘it was the time of the month’ and the DA said that she would use that defense and they always get off using that as a defense.

      Regardless of the fact that I almost died from the injury’s. and my crime against her.

      I was working nights and wouldn’t get up when some of her friends visited and wanted the house to themselves and I had only had 3 hours sleep.

      Women had always demanded equal rights and they should be treated equally in the court room instead of this bias toward them.

  13. Rocky says:

    Oboy,
    I hope this does not catch on. Myself and most of my friends have all been less that faithful during our marriages. If killing is the result of getting a little on the side, there will not be many adults left.

    1. Cynic says:

      Am I correct in assuming that you are a Female?

    2. klesb says:

      Not many of your kind, perhaps. This is a bad thing? Those who put their spouse at risk of a fatal disease “to get a little on the side” deserve death. What is the problem?

      1. jay jay says:

        well my ex gf put another man on the phone to talk to me while they were out together. I just kicked her ass out of the house. didnt have to kill her. but if you are straight up cheeting you are a POS and don’t deserve one’s love

    3. MAKE MY DAY says:

      @Rocky…”Myself and most of my friends have all been less that faithful during our marriages”! That’s a statement to be proud of – why did you bother getting married in the first place??? My condolences to your poor, trusting, faithful wife!! When are you going to stop thinking with your very small head???

        wikipedia is not recognized as an authoritative source, and is not accepted by most colleges/universities. The reason being information put into wikipedia is not verified.

  15. Ray2447 says:

    Domestic violence will never end as long as the whole truth about it is misrepresented to comply with feminist ideology. V.P. Biden recently called violence against women, “the very worst abuse.” The very worst abuse is valuing one life less than another for having been born the wrong gender. Under domestic violence law, the wrong gender is men. Shelter and services are virtually non-existent for male victims of domestic violence. Options out of a bad relationship, that women have, are often not available to men. Men wind up gender profiled and falsely accused by the taxpayer funded, domestic violence industry, because of gender feminist ideology controlling the d.v. industry. Men are often battered by domestic violence, and then battered again by the taxpayer funded, domestic violence industry as shown in “Los Misandry” at Youtube.

    1. Frank says:

      And don’t forget how men’s lives are ruined by women who falsely cry rape, and NOTHING at all is done to the women. angryharry dot com….lots of real stories about the intense abuse of men. And don’t forget all the social programs for women, and none that I know of for men. Or affirmative action. Or special loans to women to start businesses. And don’t forget all the man-hating women out there. They are in large numbers, but you hardly hear about them. I am proud to admit I’m a misogynist and will always be so.

We are an emotional people especially when being betrayed by friends, lovers, husbands, wives, etc . Domestic violence is not ok but there are countless women who endure an never call the cops until they snap an situations like these happen Johnson . I f you grew up struggling in the hood ur probally fought alot in the streets respect is evey thing, u won or ur lost but u would know not to word some stupid ish you just posted. .Read on slavery find out why black children seemed destined to be poor. And then read about those black children who made great inventions an fought for a black child freedom . Im proud to be black an with out the struggle I would not have been able to tell you ur stup .

      1. Ginero says:

        Heated:

        Please try to have a critical mind. You fall right where the public mind falls: that when women commit domestic violence it’s reactionary. This is not only shallow and banal, it does not represent a critical mind. Why cant you ask yourself why on theft and other crimes, women commit as many crimes as men. Why dont you ask why there are no DV shelters for men, In black neighborhoods is where women have perpetrated the lie more than anywhere else. They seek a quick way out of relationships to gain benefits and as a result end up raising kids by themselves , taking credit of they turnout OK, but blaming lack if male role models if they dont turn out well.

    she prob wasn’t black

      With a name like “Shawntina”? Yeah, she’s probably Asian….

    Bread? Give the woman CHOCOLATE!

  48. kwumey says:

    um. you may want to get out more. Sistas are dating all kinds of men and while some black men degrade themselves with snowflake, MOST Black men are with good Black women

    1. Tabbed Ranger says:

      No. Most Black men are with black men….in prison.

    2. jambo says:

      kwumey…you are brain dead. DEAD. That’s the problem–“getting out”. By the time some of “these” people think about committing to a wife/husband they’ve been with (and I mean “been with”) enough people to retire on SS. Scores of different partners if not more and proud of it. I’m being conservative and benign and I’m Black.

    3. Frank says:

      @kwumey….yeah, right. That’s why the savior farakhan had to put together a million man march a few years ago to teach the brain dead black men to learn to deal with life as civilized human beings. No doubt, in all sincerity, there are wonderful people out in the world of all colors, but this is the stuff that makes the news and gives us the impression that a lot of the black community doesn’t get it.

      ‘Sistas’? There ya go……

  49. kwumey says:

    You failed to mention Amongst pink males, most statistically are likely to be pedos, raping lil boys and molesting their own kids when not dowloading kiddie porn.. oh and the rest are xdressing flamers..

      good answer for those who want the brotherhood to end up ruling the world

  52. perril says:

    Just another example of what happens when Lethal Weapons go unregulated. If the wife would have had to be registered to own her knife, she may have been rejected due to mental instability.

    Or if the knife would hace only been limited to 1 inch in length, it may not have been a fatal wound. If the would destroy all kitchen knives, this kind of tragedy could be avoided. Pergaps a smart knife with passwords or fingerprint recognition, we could keep these out of criminal hands. Regulations at Garage sales abd import restictions and taxes on the manufacturers of these horrible weapons would limit their spread as well!

    Yes, I am being sarcastic. But every idea presented hear has been argued by the liveral Hippie crowd that was legalized drug use so your childrens bus drivers can drive them to school stoned, and Firearms illegal, even though any moron or criminal can go to any hardware store and purchase steel pipe, fittings, starting fluid and fishing weights and a barbeque igniter and make a weapon to rob a bank, or murder any one of these cowards…….. or perhaps just use a kitchen knife or box cutter and accomplish an unspeakable act of terror. Remember 9/11. Someone on those planes would not gave relented to the terrorists if they were armed.

  53. Sheila L. says:

    How do you see a hickey on an African American?

    1. Frank says:

      Hahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahahahahahaha!!!!!

    2. SoDisappointed says:

      Are you serious??? Oh that’s right, there’s only one shade of brown/black for African Americans and they don’t bruise either (or at lease you can’t see it). You sound so stupid!

  54. truckinmann says:

    We nees hickey control! A seven day waiting period on giving a hickey so the government can do a thorough background check. We also should allow only one hickey a month so hickeys won’t be taken across state lines and given elsewhere. Oh the humanity!

    1. just sayin' says:

      Maybe he was vacuuming the drapes and the hose slipped out of his hand and hit him on the neck. I bet she didn’t even consider that possibility. She just assumed the worst.

  55. Renelda Moorehead says:

    Hurting/killing anyone is wrong–unless it is SELF DEFENSE. BUT I don’t
    believe that’s why there are so many black widows,;or manless black sistas.
    There aren’t enough available black brothers for black women. SHARING IS
    NECESSARY. SISTAS DON’T TRIP. This is a fact. And we all know why.
    AS I SEEIT: SHARE, SISTAS, OR LOSE. I am feeling sadness & Love for
    the kids who lost the ir Dad, for his family & friends, & for the wife –probably
    a long time abused woman–and her family. dIVORCE IS AN OPTION.
    PEACE OUT.

    We all know a knife ban is long overdue. . No knives over 2 inches allowed. Folks previoulsy convicted of any crime cannot purchase or own any knife. And if you pay the knife tax you may purchase more than one after a transfer fee and background check.

  59. Grzmlyk says:

    That damned George Bush. Hasn’t he done enough to destroy race relations? First he forces Barack Obama to spend $4 trillion, and now he frames this poor, innocent, oppressed member of the black community in good standing. Quck, somebody, call Al Sharpton. This woman shoudln’t be going to jail – she should be getting paid.

    Moral of the story: NEVER ARGUE IN THE KITCHEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :):):)

  61. Not the brightest bulb in the pack says:

    There are four ways we as caring, loving human beings and citizens of the great country of America could have prevented this:

    1) Make the premeditated giving of hickies at public events a felony punishable on 1st offense by 10-15 years in jail, a $100,000 fine and 500 hours of community (non-public hickey) service.
    2) Make killing your unfaithful husban/wife with a kitchen knife a misdemeanor punishableonly on 1st offense by 2 days (non-weekend days of course) in jail, a $10 fine and 2 hours of community (non-kitchen utility) service.
    3) Psychologically screen every woman n the U.S. for Crazy Bxxxx Syndrome and every woman you find that is likely to go over the edge at the slightest provocation tatoo “Cxxxx Bxxxx” on their forehead so every guy knows to button up their collar before they go home.
    4) Test every male in the U.S. for AxxHxxx Syndrome by having a beautiful woman walk by him and every man that gets a hard tatoo “AxxHxxx” on his forehead so every woman knows to enroll in a Beni Hana of Tokyo cooking class.

    Then again, was it the crazy Bxxxx wife, or the hickie or hte cheating or the kitchen knife that killed the AxxHxxx husband? Maybe we should outlaw all hickies that can get you in trouble with a significant other and all kitchen knives that can be used to get your point across!

    In any case, Obamacare has been determined to be unconstitutional so there was no saving this wretched fool’s life. Let’s face it, sometimes a kitchen knife can be used as chlorine to help clean up the gene pool!

    Remember – You can NOT legislate MORALS or STUPIDITY!

  62. Pat D says:

    She has multiple and perfect defense options:
    George Bush commits these crimes and makes it look black-on-black crime,
    The ‘uncivil’ discourse which prevails in the US drives these crimes
    The Tea Party situation causes these crimes.
    Racist Police set people up for hickey crime
    Growing up in racist America causes hickey craze
    Access to knives faciltates crime over which the perp has no control
    The ‘glass ceiling’ leaves women with no other option than to kill/maime

  63. Terence says:

    It is so refrehing to read so many bigoted comments(must be Boooostone) , feels like a kkk convention.Sorry i wasnt AXED to join(i guess no harm done) . Me Racist? nah…..

  69. headshaker says:

    It all depends on were the HICKEY WAS

    1. Frank says:

      Wasn’t Hickey the guy who shot Reagan?

  76. woodNfish says:

    There was nothing he could do about it because it is illegal to defend yourself in Massachusetts.

  77. James says:

    Hickeys must be out-lawed. They are born out of an aggressive moment of time when the giver nor the receiver are in no reasonable mental state to properly consider the implications. We need another TV Reality Show. We’ll call it “A Day In The Life Of A Hickey”. The theme music will be the Beatles “A Day In The Life”. I read the news today oh, boy…

  78. Dana Patrow says:

    Shawntina probably feels remorse now, Scientists have shown that monkeys morn their dead just like humans.

  79. DigitalBob says:

    Shawntina? That sounds like a black name but I can’t imaginne a black woman stabbing a man over a hickey…

  80. shocked says:

    OMG get a divorce people. I am sorry–regardless of this guy maybe cheating, you have no right to take a life.

    1. MAKE MY DAY says:

      @shocked….That’s too easy and logical – besides you are mainly dealing with a somewhat lower class of intelligence here!!!

  81. pynaetlb says:

    Shawntina is an Irish name, right.

      @pynaetlb…definitely – especially after 10 pints of Guiness!!!

      Most likely.

      What I want to know is, if there is a “hickey”, who was the “hickER”?

      Pictures of her and wife for comparison, please.

  84. russf says:

    blacks acting irrational? that explains obama i guess, you silly black. just keeps them away from weapons and the voting booth and the world will be a better place.

  85. Tanisha says:

    In the jungle it’s a LAW…

    NO UNAUTHORIZED HICKEYS

    Not Guilty!

  86. paul says:

    did you ever stop and think his hickey was caused by slip on one of the many bananna peels around him or that he had just lost his grip from one of the branches he had been swinging on

  87. LuigiK says:

    Judging from about 50% of the comments on this story, racism is alive and flourishing in the United States of America! Obviously the “christian values” that so many of you claim the country was founded on are simply lip-service or, alternatively, your American christian values are as brutal as those you’ve been led to believe exist in Islam. Given an opportunity many of you would opt for the vigilante lynch-mob as your chosen form of justice.
    Americans are bigotted by their religious choices and patriotic claim to be the best at everything and “the right way”. Look outside your borders America, you’re a failed democracy and a failed world power.

    1. Frank says:

      Yeah, right, at least we don’t stone women for talking with men, or behead people for being American…..we have things in this country called ‘rights’. And yes, we can say what we want…that’s the whole idea. Don’t tell us that blacks don’t call EACH OTHER hiqqer…..how’s come, Luigi, you don’t have anything to say about the Black Panther leader recently being seen on camera calling for the killing of white BABIES, for crying out loud?!! You’re proven yourself to be yet another pathetic and mindless liberal who has the IQ of, well, a black woman. Where’s that confounded knife?

    2. MAKE MY DAY says:

      @LuigiK…They think they are all big men and women – hiding behind the pen…Also, don’t forget what “Neck-Of-The-Woods” they live in as well!!

  88. GW says:

    Sad thing about these post… Not much has been said about the children….

    Ban All Knives!!!!!

    -Doesn’t that sound stupid?

  90. GMoran says:

    Just wait for the blunt object registration database…

  91. nelle says:

    For those blogging on here about the murder of someone are absolute losers and should be ashamed of yourself .What people should be more concerned with is who actually was in the wrong and not on what gender did what. As well as if who ever did the crime will pay for what they did because that man was someones child and father. Basically this should not be a topic for people to be openly discussing if you do not have common since not to offend people. who is anyone to JUDGE . MY CONDOLENCES TO HIS FAMILY

  92. JAQUEBAUER says:

    Thank God it was not a gun…..otherwise the idiot democrat marxists in Congress would step up their demands for gun control. I guess now they will jump to knife control.

  93. Wyocalgirl says:

    Let’s see if liberals try and ban all knives, now.

    Poor ignorant lowlifes.

    For the record no man in history has ever been shot or stabbed while washing dishes.

  96. Slade says:

    Amen. Dumb people do dumb things.

  97. voiceofreason says:

    First of all Bentoo is an idiot and a woman hater. Why hasn’t anyone brought up the fact that men kill in 10 times greater numbers than women. And like a previous post the majority of women who kill were provoked by the victim. That’s another way of saying “Self Defense!”. Women are also more likely to not be repeat offenders or will not reoffend, so the prision sentences reflect that. And if there is any doubt about men getting away with killing and raping women look at how many serial killers have been caught and released to kill again. BTW, anyone remember OJ?? Fair??

  98. Kendrick1 says:

    Should we outlaw knives or hickeys..or both? We could appoint a new czar for this!!

  99. Peyton says:

    I find it interesting that the comments on this killing have taken so many turns. It’s gone from women not being “properly punished” for their crimes to an issue of race. All we know is that a woman had been arrested for stabbing her husband; allegedly over a hickey. No one knows where this case will lead yet. In response to the comments about blacks and violence; what about Julie Schenecker? She is the white woman from Tampa who killed both her son and her daughter last Friday for being “mouthy”. She shot and killed her son while taking him to soccer practice, then returned home and shot and killed her daughter. The point is whether you’re white, black, or other people- in general do crazy things.

    1. SoDisappointed says:

      I totally agree, Peyton! People of all colors are capable of anything. It’s a shame that the media continues to post mostly negative things about people of color. Also, what’s sad is most people posting comments are probably claiming a religious affiliation but it surely isn’t depicted in what has been written. SMH

  100. George Costanza says:

    She was quoted “He ran into my knife – ten times. He had it coming.”

  101. Migawhd says:

    The worst part is if he had defended himself and killed her he would be in jail so long he would wish he was dead. I on the other hand have no problem beating a ish senseless, actually I prefer it that way…”Pimp Hand way strong!”

  104. JR says:

    We must have Knife Control NOW!!!! No one should be able to buy a knife without federal authorization and all kitchens must undergo an inspection by federal authorities. If you are caught with a knife without the proper papers, you must go to jail for a minimum of 5 years. That will stop all of these knife crimes. Where are you Mayor Bloom berg about knife violence???????

  105. JFitz says:

    To everyone defending this adulterer… I guess if he brought AIDS or HERPES home to her it would be okay? I say he had it coming if you want to be with more than one woman don’t get married. Next time he will think twice before letting someone suck on his flesh..oh wait he can’t! Women don’t HAVE to be the VICTIM. Call me for the jury on her trial!

Hundreds of years of enslavement/deprivity/imprisonment will take almost that long to reverse if one is not given the tools to properly overcome those atrocities. How dare you feel superior! You truly believe a human mind can be different based on skin color? REALLY?? Wow, YOU are the one behind. I’ll be praying for you!

  116. vincestrake says:

    Finding a hickey on his neck is awful. But do you not think its extreme to kill someone for it? I think so. someone needs some anger management.

  117. Oprah says:

    Hey girlfriend…..nice job. Now, i will post bail and then you come to be onmy show . We will instruct you to cry alot and say yous sorry over and over. Talk about how your daddi spanked you and how you were driven to drugs and how you fould a playboy at your uncles house and you were so offended. Then just say you are a poor black woman and yous love obama. Once we get through with you you will not even have to worry about no stinkin trial.

    Who says if you rely on TV for news, stats and facts you’re an idiot? I long ago realized that USA Today, Newsweek, Time magazine, etc.etc., were prejudiced in their selection and presentation of news stories. In fact, I’ve found that even statistics are jaded by the political side the news organization is on, i.e., they may include the results without giving you the exact question that was asked, or, may take an answer they don’t like and “interpret” it. For example, one study on the racist proclivities of various groups, White, Black, Asian and Hispanic, cleary demonstrated that Black had more racially prejudiced beliefs than any other group. The staff of USA Today, instead of just presentinng the facts, then made the unsubstantiated conclusion that they must have learned racial bigotry from the Whites. And you say people who get news from TV are idiots? Please . . . .

    Sweet gentle female was slaving over a hot stove, cutting healthy veggies for her beloved hubby… She dropped the knife, when she saw the hickey… as he was doing Ten Push-ups over the dropped knife… Killing his own damn self…
    (Good thing she didn’t find TWO Hickeys ! !). :-D

  132. j says:

    NO SHE DIDN’T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  133. Jeanine says:

    Sorry sweetie, your theory is wayy off. If you have not watched the news recently I would like to inform you of the murder of 2 young children shot to death by their mother. Wow, what a surprise, she was a white female. Crime is not classified or grouped by color (ex. black or white people if you do not understand that statement.). Anyone in the world is capable of killing anyone. All it take is rage, anger, jealously, hate, or ignorance. Please be more open-minded and think before you speak. Its sad to see that you are even blinded by ignorance and discrimination even when it comes to the death of someone, regardless of their racial backround.
    Have a wonderful day

  137. Disgusted Gentleman says:

    I’m amazed at all the ignorant comments on this story… a life was lost and all some of you care about is pointing out skin color, race and ethnicity… LIFE is LIFE… one man’s life means no more or less than the next man. All violence is sad. All crime is unfortunate. All wrong-doing is just simply wrong! Get over your ego’s and educate yourselves. It all starts with thinking before you speak! For shame!

  138. Lucy says:

    Knives are far less dangerous than guns. Knives require the attacker to be on top of the victim but you don’t need to be to fire a gun and kill someone.

    The issue here is that he trusted her enough to be in close proximity to her.

    She should pay the price. We all need to be careful of who we trust. Are they trustworthy? Are they stable?

    She hurt her kids the most I think. Stupid.

  139. Lucy says:

    That woman down in Florida was probably a conservative Republican and probably Christian. That is in the Bible or so I’ve read quoted by someone I know who supposedly knows the Bible. I don’t so I’m not in a position to dispute them.
    She was stupid and unstable. Teenagers can be major pains. You take a break for them. You send them to their rooms. You take away the stuff that they care about the most for a time being. You don’t kill them. A permanent “solution” to a very temporary problem. There is no excuse for what she did. She was stupid.
    She didn’t think. That was the problem. She didn’t use her brain. Logic is not her friend.

    How very authoritarian and undemocratic.

  140. Friend says:

    I know his oldest child and she is heartbroken . To anyone who is leaving disrespectful negative comments it is completely uncalled for. There are now two children without a Father. Absolutely disgusting the way people are commenting on this tragedy.
