    He should get the same thing that he dished out. A eye for a eye.At the very least, he should be executed if found guilty.

    Now that I've finished with Alpha, on to this story. If the husband confessed, that should be the end of the story. He should be pronounced guilty and he should face a firing squad at sunrise. That would be a easier way to go than the way he tried to kill this lady.Don't have any pity on him. I wish I could be the judge for a day.

    Alpha Female, so you're on Ambien, huh? Does the fact that you helped put Obama in office keep you awake at night? I can see you now, lying there awake all night asking yourself over and over and over why did I vote for that man Obama? Why did I fall for his lies. All I can say is we Republicans tried to warn you not to fall under his spell.Sorry about the guilty concience.

    Hold on Erin...not just so you can tell what happened..but for your baby. It's not your time to go. God is your redeemer! And you want to be around to see Marine Corporal Jonathan Gould get his. I know you can hear in a coma...so I pray someone reads this to you. Fight and Fight hard, because it isn't over. I'm going to see can I find you and send you a basket, so when you come home, you'll have some comfortable things to wear! If you know her, read this to her please.... Regards ALPHA
