excuse you he was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter don't forget that! and you are just saying things like that because your very ignorant and jugemental my cousin didn't do anything i don't know how many times i have to say that but best believe i will keep saying it...we are not trying to get you to believe anything we are just stating the facts that you forget to mention! you not knowing ben of course your going to judge and thats fine but like i said its not goin to change anything.
If I am going to judge just simply for not knowing him or not being his cousin, you are going to have blinders on because you are his family member. Yes, he was guilty of involuntary manslaughter, and as I stated, the deffinition of INVOLUNTARY MANSLAUGHTER is the unlawfull killing of a human without malice. Go look it up. Believe me, I know the facts, I was in court every day. I know the facts and the lies that were proven to be lies, but you will never see that because you are his family member.

i really don't care what you say! my FAMILY knows what happened and thats all that really matters not you judgemental and ignorant ass folks of that hell hole town you call beloit especially the hospital you guys are just trying to make a name of yourself cuz you have nothing better to do with your lives especially living in beloit...the only thing beloit was trying to do with this case is just trying to get on the map which still isn't working and i think its funny you call yourself a christian haha you really need to look up the definition of that before you want to consider yourself one....say what you want believe what you want, and yes i can guarantee you he will be getting out soon. also that whole education thing really grow up ok once again judgeing. nothing good happens to horrible people remember that and yes i'm saying that to you don't turn it around and try to talk about my cousin again. like i said grow up and move on with your life this shit is really getting old.
Ignorant? You dont know me, now who is being judgemental? The family was not there, they have no idea what happened. The dads story did not match with bens story, and the cousins story did not match with the friends story. This is getting old. You probably have never read the Bible as I have, nor been in a Church. Do not lecture me on Christianity as you have no clue. Ignorance is believing the hospital and entire town are trying to do nothing "but get on the map". You know it was the state of Kansas that brought the charges dont you? As well as the state Attourney General, you know that right. The hospital is very well known for the wonderfull work and lives they have saved. Ignorance is believing the hospital and or investigators were just out to get your cousin, they would have done the same thing no matter who it was. Ignorance is not know hospitals are required to call the police for the death of any one under the age of 18. Ignorance is blaming the hospital for what happened when you were NOT there at the beginning or in the room that night. You have no clue what went on.

Talk about ignorant, you have no clue how I was involved, now who is being judgemental? In the last 5 years I have played more of a role in this world than you ever will. You dont know me or my accomplishments, so now who is being judgemental and ignorant? How can some one from Randall call Beloit a "hell hole of a town"? I would love to let it go, but you and your family brought this on yourself with the way you treated those involved. I got fed up with all the slanderous remarks and postings. You back me into a corner and I will only take it so long. You talk about all of Beloit being hypocrites, look at your entire family first. All the things they said were unsupported lies that could not be backed up with evidence, yet you blame every other person involved for the conviction of Ben.

exactly we never asked any of the family or Ben's cousin to get on this site we have a right to say what we want on here but no you couldn't keep your nose out of it then we back up our shit and you are looking like fish being shot out of a bucket easy target and their is no reason to do this you are an easy target this will never end on this site if you dont just call all of us ignorant and just back away
i really believe that if you just do not get on this site anymore people will quit bothering you i was the same as you in school and still am to this day people would start an argument with me and i would continue tell their is no end only thing different is that you can back away because its on a computer it is somthing that is avoidable and even if you just look at it but do not respond it will be much easier and then you can begin to grieve

Really i do not know if Ben did anything anyone has said he has did you were just someone to argue with take the stress out of my day on this page and you would argue back Maybe he did do whatever he was accused of but i do not know and neither does anyone else HAVE A NICE DAY

Luke 6;37
“Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven;

John 7:24
"Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgment."

James 4:11-12
Do not speak evil against one another, brothers. The one who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks evil against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. There is only one lawgiver and judge, he who is able to save
and to destroy. But who are you to judge your neighbor?

Ephesians 4:32
Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

i do have a clue ...minored in theology at an ivy league school back east....and mr. JESSE HEome is the one who started this case and couldn't finish it and was ordered by the judge to turn his files over the the states attorney....you are very wrong about me not being there I personally was NOT kept out of the courtroom and I am very very well schooled in legal and medical issues .....and please people I apologize if anyone has taken my statement about hippocrites and gossips in Beloit...I have met many many GREAT people in beloit and mitchell county I was refering to the ones whom continue gossip like this and NOT THE WHOLE TOWN...and pray for the rest that God will show them the truth

Wow, sadly, you people will never get it. You have believed his lies. If you were well educated in medical issues you would know this is not meningitis as you want to believe. Plus you say meningitis caused the bleed, then you say it was artifact, it cant be both. You are all choosing to ignore the facts. Read the autopsy again, if you would like. You can be here, I never told you to leave, I am just telling you to quit ignoring the facts. No, not one family member can tell any one what happened, none of them were there that night. The cousin, who lived there, had left for sonic. How can she say what happened, she was not there. Why did you not share those versus before, you know, when you were spreading lies about the KBI, hospital staff, and prosecuter? I never judged any of you, but you sure seemed okay with judging and starting lies about every one involved, thats kinda like the pot calling the kettle black. I have a ten commandment for you: though shall not kill. I do not think he set out to kill Stevie that night, but she was in his care, ended up dead, and the story has changed, the prosecution has proven all the lies. I am done with this stupid stuff, you will never admit the facts, however, if you drag my associates, or myself through the mud again I WILL NOT stand for it. Have a great life.

we have the right to investigate on the behalf of our family member...it's our constitutional right to eliminate all possibilities...it's our constitutional right to our research...as far as me personally dragging any of your associates through the mud i have no idea what you could be talking about....but if you want to be upset it's your constitutional right ...just know I personally have never spoken a word to you or your associates not threatening or on a professional level...we are all seeking closure and hope to find more intelligent answers ...obviouslly you your associates nor I will find that here....

some of us know that, I was in the courtroom every second ,,,and of course we are a little defensive for Ben because there was never any evidence of a trauma ,,,thats why he was found NOT guilty of child abuse,,,what really sucks is knowing that horrible rumors and gossip twisted peoples perception

he is out because of an appeal or to explain a little deeper from a legal point of view; Ben was found "not guilty" of child abuse...so how is it that he is charged with manslaughter when there wasn't a crime in commision at the time(ie,child abuse?)...federal and state statutes define manslaughter as the action or cause of death while in the commision of a crime. And I will ad my personal opinion; perhaps prosecution should make for darned sure that there is physical evidence to back up charges before draggin our whole family through the mud, you can't prosecute based on opinion gossip and hearsay, it has to be "fact" backed up with "evidence" of every statement made. Rumors DO NOT prove cases, opinions are just that opinions and not fact until proven to be so.
