All I am saying is people need to quit trying to play God by judging everyone elses actions. When if they look at themselves they are a sinner just the same. Stealing and lying is the same as murder in the eyes of the lord.
God bless everyone and I hope you think about what you are doing that is wrong in the eyes of the lord before judgeing others.....
Yes I am a sinner as we all are but I would never do something so horrible to someone. An eye for an eye is how I see it. I am not playing God as you say I am. And I agree he brought this on himself. I will not change my mind about this. If he turns to God than fantastic. He should still receive the death penalty but at least he will not suffer as she did nor will he get to feel the same pain she went through (burning) if he doesn't turn to God.

I don't think that we are playing God. I have known this young man practically all his life. He has never been anything but abusive to every girl friend he ever had beginning at a young age. Like Junior High. This forum stems from him murdering his girlfriend. We have every right to voice our opinion. That is not judging. That is life. You don't have to agree with me any more than I have to agree with you. If he finds God before he is put to death than good for him. He still deserves to die for what he did! What goes around comes around. I believe that God will see that justice is done! I am a huge advocate for the death penalty. I don't want to pay for his prison stay for the rest of his life. He took a life intentionally and brutally so take his life. He lost his right to have my sympathy! I hope he burns in hell for a very long time.

Give me a break Lucy. With your outlook every woman that gets the hell beat out of them it's their fault? Guess for every woman that gets beat more than once we should start putting them in jail for staying around to be abused instead of the men that beat them

I didn't know Donnie Jr. personally. I do know Donnie Sr., and HE is a good man. Different, but a good guy. All I have EVER heard about JR. is that he beat women and him setting someone on fire... really? That's awful! And if anyone acts like he didn't do it, what do they think? She did it to herself. Yeah, real smart.. NO pretty sure he LIT HER ON FIRE and put EVERYONE else in danger in the process. Now Donnie Sr. is facing all kinds of fines for the house sitting there looking like crap because of what his SON did. The house was in Sr.'s wife's name, and she passed away awhile before Jr. did what he did. Since Sr. was married to her, the house is now rightfully his and he is paying even more for what his son did. He was ALWAYS paying for his stupid kids' mistakes, and it's still happening. Whatever happens on earth to Jr. will be NOTHING compared to his eternity. Even if he gives his life to God, and he still could and that'd be great, he will STILL be judged and STILL have to suffer for everything he has done...JUST LIKE THE REST OF US.

that is not what I said outsider I said why did she stick around if he abused her why did she stick around seems like common sense to me they abuse you then leave nobody made her stay I didn't say he didn't do wrong all I simply wonder was why did she bother to stick around

I never understood why people stick around but for some odd reason they do. But your point as nothing to do with what he did is why people are disagreeing with you.

yes they do stick around they can disagree all they like to each his own guess I was just basically asking a question everyone was saying how bad he is and abusive was just wondering why she would or anybody else would put up with that,seems like really the familys on both sides are the ones that are suffering

' I'm thankful for you saying Sr. Donnie is a good man, that did good for his family , best he could to be there for them ' an they should do for him in return ! I do not understand the younger generations actions now , the respect , the disipline ' I did see them get corrected growing up, I know when the ill of life is killing from inside how can you fix the outside ? Just truely a question I ask , only for suffering our own mistakes.... Sinners as the ones who just watch it fall apart , an do nothing , but watch to tell the stories of a monster womanizer ' really sad to let lead a word by a mouth of a horse to drink water !! A scripture my favorite ' PHILLIPIANS 4:13 'I Can Do All Things Through Christ ' which strengthens me....... Jr. Donnie knows his fate best his actions he lives to eternity with it forever... is true in his heart the pain to die , just the same with it just diffrent our own , Kristy knows the truth an 'So do's he...that's what matters most !! Not that I know anthing , but love for them 'both....my heart to forgive ' I've printed in my soul... Alway's truely a broken one !! To live with enternal scare as this..

Lucy, you sound very ignorant. And YES, your posts seem to blame the victim. There are a multitude of reasons a person (not just women) don't leave their abusers. The most common reason, fear. If someone beats you, often or just once, you tend to believe them when they say they will kill you and/or your family if you ever leave. Or that YOU are the piece of worthless shit, that no one will ever love you, or want you or you'll never make it with out them, etc., etc. Leaving an abuser is rarely simple. Until you've lived it or witnessed it helplessly or helped someone out of it, shut the f*ck up!

Regaurdless, Yes he needs to pay for his actions. Using his state of mind is no excuse. But all of you talking like this about him, makes you just as evil. God is the only judge, End of story. Trying to replace him and be judge only makes you just as much in the wrong.
You are so full of it. We are judged by our peers, till we die then you will b judged by god. Until then that monster should be caged till he is executed.

I also believe in God and read my Bible and it says to obey mans laws. Killing is against the law. Premeditated is worse. The jar of gasoline don't grow legs and walk into there. I ha e known him and his family for 3 generations back. He was raised to be a good person. He became involved in drugs and became another person not an excuse but the truth so quit sugar coating it. I'm not judging I have faith in God and his judgment day with come.
