Ladies, you cannot 'change' a man. He changes himself if, and when, he wants to. Would you be ashamed to tell people who could help about how he's physically abusive etc.? If so, have some self-respect; understand the importance of self preservation; walk away with your dignity (and face) unblemished at the first signs of violence - and (stupid, stupid, stupid women who dream of romantic endings with their princes) DO NOT RETURN.

<quoted text>like you said-- use to-- she was the abusive one that day and that day is the day that matters as far as i'm concern--if she was so smart she should have walked away but she didn't--she wanted to fight and she ended up killing shawn out pure rage--she had no bruises but he did and he died from them!!!
You don't know that! When she punched Shawn in the face! Why didn't he just leave? How do you know wanting her to leave his apartment was his motive for following her upstairs? Could it have been his ego was hurt because she done that in front of his friends? For the record! some people who get abused do get fed up and they do decide to fight back! I'm not saying what she did was right but like you been told you were not In that room so you don't know what made her do that! Her actions showed she loved Shawn and did not want him to die after the stabbing! How both families acted showed that they cared for Adrienne abd Shawn! It's easy for people to talk the talk when thier not in that situation.

Oh and by the way she did walk away he followed her upstairs? We don't know if her hitting him was all that it took to want to strike back? Did he want her to leave or was she going to now get it for hitting him!? We always tell the woman just walk away, just leave! Ok we should tell our men that as well!

I had seen this very sad horrible stories on t.v
while I was watch this reminded me of my brother Eddie who girlfriend proclaim his life< but unlike hickson she burn him alived in Birmingham, Al,than took his cell phone to call her family get to get her from the seem. She would not come to the hospital but call my mother from my brother cell whom she kill. Well for the look of and what people say that she was jealous and spoil but how do you know that it wasn't more than that.I think Love do make you do crazy thing and regardless of what anyone say I think she did love him otherwise she wounld give a what and just. My brother Eddie that did have of the thing Washington did but dated someone like hickson, he didn't know that this woman was going to take his life but she did all because she didn't want to see him with nobody else not even family. Remember she burn him alive and call my mom afterward she didn't spend a dawn a in jail at less hickson got 5 years so please appreciate some people wish they can spend someone away.
Did you proof read what you wrote? Your comment does not make sense. The spelling and grammar errors are ridiculous!

so every person that encountered some Type of abuse has the rght to kill that person if thats the case he should have retaliated and killed her too because she verbally abused him noone knows what happen but her him and God and her conscience will never leave her and she will alwayz suffer

After reviewing her case/trial. I feel each family was fair to each other they showed a lot of love for each other, Shawn's family was extremely nice. I feel Adrienne was a bit jealous of Shawn and his relationship with his friends he was just being nice trying to help his friends out with moving you have some guys who just do not give a shit, they won't even answer the phone at least he looked out for her with the drug money. Adrienne you should have controlled the anger a litter better than you did because no one deserve to lose their life because another was jealous or angry that is something you can get over and have another chance at but Shawn will never get a another life. To everyone whom is reading this Adrienne was a blessed woman to be free today it was "GOD" whom gave her another chance not the judge, courts nor the jury. Think twice being jealous nor spoiled is not worth it when you are in a relationship. Learn to be happy and continue to pray things will get better. My prays go out to both families. And to Adrienne she did her time let her live her life it was just a lesson learned to each and everyone of us especially her.

I honestly think he really loved her. He flew her out and back to washington took her to the finest restaurants prob just to keep her and impress her, thier friends say they were both in love. I think she stabbed shawn thinkin it wasn't that serious, besides the fact that the hospital didn't take his injuries seriously. C mon 4 days finding out the real problem? It shudnt take that long, they shud b sued. If they were good doctors they would have found the real problem within 24 hrs, even tho I knw she didn't want him murdered but I do think she should have gotten more time. At least 20/30 yrs smh

I'm sorry but that's not love. You don't kill people you love.now this bitch sittin up here thinking she can move on with her life after she done killed that man. With something like that on her background she will never get a job working with the law. Drug dealer or not he didn't deserve to die. I hope it haunts her for the rest of her life & she burns in hell for this one.

Sorry Kia, I cant agree with that! Lets get educated on something here. FINISHING LAW SCHOOL.doesnt make you s lawyer. A person has to be admitted to the BAR and a law degree doesnt guarantee a person is admitted.

HI Niecey, I partially agree with your comment. Life is life . Sometimes women cant walk away and when the escalation hits the outcome is unpredictable. Been there done that wont look back down trouble avenue. I am currently pursuing my law school goals and most people dont know that law school keeps you on the radar in many ways. Having a law degree does not Guarantee anyone will be admitted to the bar. Also this situation for AD will fall under " character and fitness" on the Bar application and this will be reviewed on a case by case basis. Bar review differs from state to state. AD most likely will need to apply for the Bar in a very liberal state that would consider a person with a criminal past. Not many but a few are out there. Maybe she could be admitted to the bar in Alaska or somewhere like thst.

We have SEVERAL people in prison for crimes they did not commit, people who are serving life for drug charges WOW.. REALLY im so ANGRY with USA, we are a JOKE!!!!! USA SUCK when it come to doing what is written fairly... This is sade we live in a place like this.. GOD is coming again,so many of us will be very SUPRISED,GOD is the real legal system

She was a spoiled little bitch and very typical of alot of privileged rich kids. She wanted control and the situation spun out of control. Drugs dealing did not have anything to do with this murder. Thats the problem with this world.... no one is better than no one. She os a bitch and deserves to be in jail for a long time.

People thanks for all the comments. Shawn and I were first cousins. The pain his death caused our family can't be put into words. We all know that more went on in that apartment than what is being said, but unfortunately the dead can't talk. We're approaching our 6th year without Shawn and this time of the year is always pretty hard for us. We just ask for your prayers and continued support. It's NOT over until God days it's over. R.I.P. Shawn. Love you always big cuz!

9-11 stab wounds, most of those wounds came after he was severely injured. You all can talk about the deceased all you want, he wanted her out of his apartment, she brought the fight to him, and she killed him.. plain and simple .. When she gets out, and she may be out already, you'll have a murderer on the street. I feel sorry for the next guy that pisses her off.
