Woodward didn't have ptsd, he was never in combat. He was a cold-blooded murderer and got what he deserved. On the other hand, you don't fuck with people, everybody has a limit, the others were lowlife, bully assholes....... According to the "law", technically they shouldnt have been killed, but they're still dead, leave people alone, never would of happened. As far as being the bigger man, he shouldve moved away, that's bullshit too. I wouldnt of killed them, but I would of found a way (several actually) to make sure they were afraid to fuck with me ever again😂 Oh, and that self-righteous bullshit about her boy loving Jesus soooo much, well Jesus wasnt loving your precious boy when he was a Dick, and he's still dead😂

Never mess with your neighbors. Reminds me of the line from "Ignorant Sht" from Jay Z. When them stares get exchanged then the 5th come out, the tough guy disappears then the bitch come out.

This is a prime example of failed justice. those kids should have received a death sentence. sure, it doesn't allow them to "pay" for their crimes, but it prevents them from living beyond that poor girl's life. the parents, they should suffer.

this annoyed me. it's healthy to be skeptical. See how your friend believed about the death??? That's believing without being skeptical. No one owes you sympathy.... just saying

I am so glad that Mike went back and rerecorded these episodes before I got to them. No offense to Trisha, but I was not looking forward to listening to them narrated by you. I prefer listening to Mike.

She is literally insane. She never stops talking and she has all these little weird details. She always has something to explain in so much detail. So odd to me.
