    This is really sick. I’ve heard Welsey J Smith talk about this issue several times on Issues Etc. It really turns the stomach how this poor woman is treated. What burns my up is that the American Humane Society and PETA would be going into fits if this treatment were given to a dog.

  2. Paul Deignan Says:

    Here is an idea that deserves to be tried: offer to pay the husband to give the parents custody.

    I think its worth going on record here as to our convictions.

  3. Josh S Says:

    By all accounts, the guy loathes his wife. Perhaps he actually tried to beat her to death, but failed, and is trying to complete the deed. If that’s the case, nothing will satisfy him, not even a divorce, a million bucks, and a release from custody. If she’s released, there’s a chance she might spill the beans and tell just where than nasty head injury came from.
