    I hope this one brings attention to Domestic Violence and raised the awareness of the community as to the seriousness of violence within relationships. Domestic Violence is NOT a "little family matter". Richardson's trial should bring attention to the mindset of today's society...that a gun is the answer to having your feelings hurt.

    The reason this trial won't get as much attention is because there isn't a misinformed side/group of people playing the race card that he didn't do it.

    I certainly hope this trial receives the same amount of publicity that the Richardson trial did. In my opinion this crime was far worse because this guy delibertatly killed two people who pleaded and fought for their lives. They were african american and the people Richardson was convicted of killing were both caucasion. I truly pray, race won't make a difference in justice for the families of the deceased people.

    My thoughts are with the Bizzell family today. I hope and pray that justice prevails.
