CLEVELAND -- The man who beat his former girlfriend with a hammer while their children slept across the hall has been sentenced to 14 years in jail.
Seven months ago, John Whitfield locked his ex-girlfriend in her room, then went in with pepper spray and a hammer.
He blinded her with the spray and then beat her repeatedly in the head with the hammer.
Wednesday morning, he went before a judge and pleaded guilty.
His sentence was the maximum allowed by law -- fourteen years in prison and five years probation.
It's been a long seven months for Arela Leidy and her family, but Wednesday certainly offered closure.
Leidy, due to the beatings, has limited ability to speak. She recently re-learned how to walk and do basic skills.
Because of the need for her constant supervision, Leidy's parents have moved in with her.
While healing is still a long road ahead, Leidy is proficient with a computer, along with texting, and intends to return to Cleveland State University to finish her degree.

You could be right. The family of the uncontrollable violent maimer is just thankful that - thanks to the corrupt "justice" system - he will soon be set free to prey upon "loving" White women once again.

I can't believe the racist comments and awful statements like "she was probably asking for it" are not removed for being inappropriate! They are SO far from 'polite' and are sickeningly insensitive! Shame on you people!! And on Topix for this shoddy discretion on moderation.
This girl was always full of love, especially for her kids. She NEVER would wish to die. If you'd got to know her or her family at all, she was always, since young, very caring and compassionate. She fell in love with someone who never treated her right, and took advantage of her kind heart, hard work and trusting nature. He used her in several ways and hurt her in several ways. The final culmination in the attack described here - the disgusting headline which reduces their lives and souls to nothing more than the color of each's skin, is neither her whole story nor his. This is a story of the consequence of not leaving someone who is abusive. Whether taying out of fear or because you truly love them, it's still dangerous. No matter your or your partner's skin color, gender, orientation, body build, or history... If you're good to and for each other, stay together. if one is not good to or for the other, do everything in your power to do the right thing and end it before it gets out of control like this situation. Be strong, stand for yourself and maybe save your life.
Let her miraculous survival an tremendous recovery be a testament to her will to live and be the mother she wants her children to have - despite the fact that their father wrote himself out of the picture in this awful way. Let her positive attitude make the case that she is not what previous comments have said at all. Grossly inappropriate and insensitive remarks.

The fact remains that her self-esteem, as you've described, was in the ditch, so she shouldn't have been dating a poor black guy. Not because of the color of his skin, but the content of his culture.
Over 70% of black men never marry the woman they impregnate. Black men attacking white women is far above any other race. The incarceration rate of black men is also disproportionate to their population. We've all seen black athletes and entertainers beating he stuffing out of their wives/girlfriends.
In short, blacks are a failed race. They cannot collectively function effectively, anywhere in a modern society without white patriarchal figures. They're certainly collectively incapable of being fathers, as many, many black women can attest.
As these facts remain, the girl was delusional, plain and simple, and you, as well as her other family and friends who didn't speak out, and warn her against her inevitable outcome, are partially responsible for her getting her brains beat in.
Grow up, and deal with it.

And if you're a white woman, don't date, much less marry poor black men, if you don't want to bleed a lot:
