She was a victim until the police reports came out. After that, she was a volunteer.

I don't know whether to think she's dumb, or feel bad for her bc she's obviously so lonely. But one thing for sure... her mother is a piece of shit!!

Why are so many people on here judging this poor woman? She is like the women who are abused but dont press charges etc...Debbie needs support, not mean rude comments. Just saying.

Suzann Cruikshank poor woman?? please. she was an idiot from the very beginning. long before he started acting super crazy. she chose his side from the very beginning. had she not been like a dumb puppy dog and listened to her kids from day 1 she never would have gotten all wrapped up in an abusive relationship to begin with. What kind of mother picks a lunatic over her kids? repeatedly! even after he was saying scary, hateful, cruel things to her kids and nephew.

Completely Revolting

Suzann Cruikshank No, she's selfish. This man threatened damn near every member of her family, she has mountains of evidence against him, and she doesn't care because he gives her attention. She sounds so childish in her voice and mannerisms. Her mom is certifiably insane, helping her daughter's murderer get out of a life sentence. The whole family is infuriatingly dumb. You can think they're sweet people who are just a little gullible, but if my daughter stays with this guy for more than a week I'll know I failed as a father.

I see that so many people here are quick to blame the victim in this situation. It's always easier to see abuse from the outside looking in, but when you're actually IN the relationship, it is SO much more difficult to see the wool being pulled over your eyes. This man manipulated Debbie, he figured out how to exploit her emotions to the point where she questioned everything about herself, and her family's intentions. We can see how horrible John is because he's not manipulating us. Let's not forget who the victim is here. Debbie certainly does not need to be berated, she needed help seeing John for who he is.

The more episodes and the deeper into an episode the more I bug my eyes out, shake my head and drop my jaw. This lady is beyond naive and has no self respect or a motherly instinct!!!

It seems to me that John knew her buttons. He didn't have to hit her. He used her emotions against her. He isolated her like most abusive people do. He made it so he was her only lifeline. The guy was a genius at mind games.

I don't appreciate that Dirty John started playing automatically after the Ben Shapiro Show. No interest in that at all. The one bit I heard was something about sending nude pics to a girl.
