    The entire Petit family case is so sad. My heart really goes out to him, I can't imagine what he's going through.

    I don't watch Oprah, but I may tune in today just to see how he's holding up.

    Dr. Petit on Oprah

    Oprah's show today had to be one of the toughest interviews I've ever watched. My heart breaks for him and his sister too.

    His answer to Oprah about if he could ever forgive or if he feels the need to forgive the monsters who killed his family was the best I've ever heard. He said that one can forgive someone who causes an accident, hits you in the face and/or slanders you (not exact words). His point is there are many unkind things people do to one another that can be forgiven. He went on to say that he did not feel he could forgive evil nor should he have to as God doesn't require us to forgive evil. God hates evil.

    I've not heard someone say this before on TV but it's the way I have always felt. It's not the peoples job to make evil doings acceptable by offering our forgiveness to those who are evil. Forgiveness is totally up to God imo.

    If ever we were to go back to a system of an eye for an eye, I'd have no problem with someone taking these two behind the shed and putting a bullet in them. So I just answered my own doubts about the death penalty. When the crime is this cold hearted and there is no doubt who committed it, why do we waste our resources and concern over the perps well being? We should put our energies into developing educational systems on how to avoid people like this. If only, if only . . . that is what Dr. Petit said goes through his head all the time.

    Somehow he has mustered up the strength to begin raising money for the Petit Family Foundation for Justice to honor the memory of his family.

    Today is the lst anniversary of my husband's sudden death and I cannot even imagine what Dr Petit is going through. Nor his sister or the entire family.

    I watched and cried for them. I thought Oprah did very well. I hope and pray they find peace one day in their lifetime. I don't know though. They still have another gruelling trial to go through.

    I too liked his answer for forgiveness. Even Oprah did. In fact, I think he gave Oprah a few things to think about today. I don't think I've ever seen her so humble.

    One of the two men charged in a 2007 home invasion in Cheshire, Conn., in which a woman and her two daughters were killed, has asked a judge to allow him to plead guilty on the condition that he receive a sentence of life without parole rather than the death penalty.

    I'm gonna start a thread for Komisarjevsky and close this one on Hayes.

    Praying for justice,

    Here's Steven Hayes' latest stunt. Personally, I'm a little disappointed his plan didn't work. It would have been a pretty painful death -- which is very deserving. Maybe his next plan will work and we can be rid of this monster forever.

    Warning - graphic photo of the home invasion (which I wasn't expecting).

    HBO's Cheshire Murders documentary on this month.

    Just watched it. Powerful and horrifically sad.
    Judgment is not about destruction, but about setting things right.

    God Bless Dr. and Mrs. Petit and their baby :)

    This case is one which grabbed me and didn't let go. Especially, Dr. William Petit's deep and searing grief and despair.

    It has been such a blessing to me to read and see the beautiful photos and videos of his new wife, Christine, their new home together, and now the impending arrival of their first child together, in early December.

    I know he will never forget, and probably never " heal" in the way we consider healing, but he is SO blessed to have survived and to now flourish with such a beautiful lady, who seems to be a wonderful beautiful soul as well. IMO, and with no disrespect meant at all, she could be a younger Jennifer Hawke- Petit. Their photos side by side are amazingly striking.

    Dr. Petit, I'm sure you don't read message boards like this one, devoted to crime, but your story is now beautiful and unforgettable. Beauty from ashes, literally. You have touched so many people very deeply, and have shown us what courage really is. If I had to name 3 top role models for living through pain, you would be number one or number two. ( former POW Jeremiah Denton is a long-time hero of mine for the same kind of physical and emotional survival.)

    Godspeed, Bill and Christine Petit, and best wishes for a beautiful baby boy in early Dec.
    ( Gender will be a surprise- I just want him to have a son. )
    JUSTICE FOR CLO STONER IN 2015!!! http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...-March-17-2014
    This is about the murder of my friend, Clo Stoner, R.N. She was shot point blank in the head numerous times- defenseless, in the middle of the day, by her " boyfriend" in 2014- a victim of domestic violence. He also shot a second victim, Joanne Butler, of Tennessee, in the same way, and also her tiny dog in a carrier.
    His trial for murder is on the AL docket for December 2015.
