It NEVER should have taken the jurors that long to come up with a verdict!!!Its bad enough he laughed,grinned and smiled thru the whole court proceeding. The jurors acted as if he was special,for killing a little child,What a waste of a life,

Why did she open the door and be bothered with him in the first place. I know they have a young daughter together, but she knew how he was.
She even says in one of her statements that she didn't want to open the door for Nathan and then she did. Well, she knew that he was not responsible, just got out of jail, would receive little or no child support for "thier" daughter.
With all of Nathans so called problems it also appears she has very poor judgment in picking companions, better yet having children to them.
Nathan needed alot of help for perhaps a long time, maybe society and our system let him down. Raised by a single father. What about his school teachers and other influential teachers in his life, church, etc. If he didn't have a good job, education and ability to give a gal security, then what was this gal doing sleeping with him and having a baby. I admit a young boy should not have died, but what about his mother's choices in companions.

Your kidding me right? You are blaming the mother for this!! No matter what she thought or anyone else thought of him, they never knew that he was a murdering piece of crap! She let him in because even though she was done with him, she DID NOT KNOW that he was capable of such things! Who ever does! Wake up and get over yourself! Like you never fell in love or liked a guy that you should of thought twice about! How was she supposed to know what he truly was! Thinking he is an A*SHOLE is one thing but a killer is another, who really thinks that some one is capable of such a horrible crime. And the only thing that I can say to you is pick different friends cause the only reason you would write such things is because you know him or his family. Just because he was raised by his dad does not say anything! People with much worse past have never even thought of doing the things he did. He was not wronged by the world like you say, HE wronged the world, HE chose to do the things he did. NO ONE ELSE! You need to stop writing on these comments cause your an idiot!

Here is my response to you too *sshole...
Are you people f*cking kidding me...SERIOUSLY. First off half of you other then Mom don't have the damn balls to admit who the f*ck you are. Why don't ALL you people GROW THE F*CK UP and mind your own damn business. Bad things Happen to good people ALL the damn time every single minute of every single day...She didn't know what he was going to do. Seriously, I know for a GOD DAMN FACT if she could change the eventrs of that night SHE WOULD but we're are NOT given the opportunity in this life to turn back time. And MY BEST FRIEND sure as hell does not need all you damn HYPOCRITS, who have ALL done something or other in their life they wish they hadn't, JUDGING her on what she should or shouldn't have done.
GO LOOK IN F*CKING MIRROR BEFORE YOU JUDGE SOMEONE ELSE'S LIFE AND CHOICES MADE , be them bad or good.

your right it should have never taken them so long. the evidence was overwelming and almost everyone of those jurors was in tears because i dont care how open-minded you have to be, murdering a little boy who was so helpless is simply a very sad thing. nate is a waste of life and hes living and breathing on our tax paying money while family of jared is in mourn for the rest of there lifes because they can no longer enjoy his smile hear his laugh and watch him breathe.

let me tell you something you cold hearted b*tch this is my daughter you are talking about who loved her children more then I can say..how dare you get on here with this insane comment... I am Jared's mom-mom and love him more than words can say and that scum bag never showed anyone of us he was a baby killer, or a rapist. I can promise you if he did he would have never been in Jareds or my daughters life.. My daughter has been through enough and she suffers everyday and does not need a idiot like you writing stupid comments like this! So either you are realted to this scum bag or you know him, and if this ever happens to you or your family I hope that you have people out there just like your stupid AS* ready to point there finger at you, and put the blame elsewhere other then where it belongs!

I understand that this is a PUBLIC forum- however- please feel free to just ask the facts before you or anyone else speads more BS rumors/opinions about Christina. This is America and we are entitled to have our own opinions, but we also, as human beings, should think about what we say before we speak.

Don't people realize that there are consequences to things they say and do and the consequences to these events are as follows?:

1. Two beautiful, talented, and amazing children are never going to wake up to one another again.

2. One of the most caring and strong families has lost a young life they care more about then themselves.

3. My Best Friend lost her first born child in one of the worst ways imaginable.

4. My niece lost a brother that was there for her every second of every day.

and the BOTTOM LINE:

5. Literally THOUSANDS of people (family, friends, students, athletes, teachers, colleagues, etc.) will NEVER see one of the most amazing children that ever entered into their lives AGAIN.

Again, please- I understand that Jared's death may have seemed "senseless" but PLEASE, PLEASE, just think of us when posting things like that. It is not to say that you are wrong for how you feel...we are just asking that you yield a little to save our souls.

God Bless to you all!

Give me a brake we all make poor judgements in our Companions! And most of us have more poor judgements than others, But that does not mean Horriable things should happen to us because we make poor choices in our life. It sounds like to me you are trying to make an excuse to what happen and blaming her and not him.......FACT IS:

1. He was CONVICTED of first degree MURDER, of a CHILD Who was 6, under the age of 12.

2. He BRUTUALLY BEAT a WOMAN nearly to DEATH. and after that when she was bleeding from every part of her body, He SEXUALLY ASSUALTED her.

3. Stole Her Car to get away and try to flee to mexico.

4. Brought his own duct tape in his pocket from a Johnstown half-way house.

5. and many other facts!

Nomatter how it all came about and what your own little warped mind is telling you, HE CAUSED THIS! HE WITH HIS OWN BARE HANDS DID THESE THINGS. and that is FACT!

All of you people who think that this is my fault can kiss my ass!! You have no clue what I am going through....I did not cry on tv, are you kidding me! I never stop crying! There is not one day that goes by that I do not regret letting that monster in my home, and I dont need you ignorant people making it even worse for me! Get a life and leave mine alone. I am destroyed over this all, and how the hell was I supposed to know what Nathan Shaw came to my house for. Get over your selves and do the world a favor and shut the f*ck up!!!!!!!!!!
To the people who have stood behind me, I thank you. Just please always remember my son and think of him always as the beautiful child that he was and always will be.

First of all I did not want to see him that night!! So get your facts straight before you run your mouth! I had a child to that piece of crap so yes I did let him in, it was the day after Christmas, I thought he wanted to visit with the kids! And I do not have to defend my self to you or anyone else that thinks this is my fault. Nathan is scum, but no one including me knew what he was capable of. You can keep thinking that you know what happened that night, but you dont. And as for me having class, I obviously have more class then you cause I would never be low enough to kick a mother who just lost her child while she was down!! I used to come on here to read how much people supported me and see that not all people in this world are bad, but thanks to you small few that have gotten on here and downed me, I will never get on here again, so when you reply to this and I know that you will, because that is what horrible people do, Know that I wont see it, nor will I care anymore about what you think. I have enough sadness in my life, I dont need anymore.

to all you people who are writing nasty comments to jareds mother, let me ask you a few questions:

do you have children? better yet, do you maybe have a broken relationship with your childrens fathers? no one is perfect. and dont tell her she is to blame for the death of her son because she opened a door. she had a child with that man. nomatter what, she cant change that. no matter how shitty of a person he appeared to be, that is still the father of her daughter, and maybe she didnt want her daughter to be shut out from her fathers life. it is not her fault at all that this happened. how could you blame an innocent woman of not loving her child enough to not open a door?

question 2.
are you all that heartless and lowlifed that you would stoop as low as to target on a victim, her daughter, and her murdered son, to make yourself feel like you are a better person? until you have been in the shoes, dont go calling out others for there flaws. i dont even know this woman, but i know as a mother, you would do ANYTHING for your children. and you would do anything to see them live the right life. do you know what went on in this womans life? were you there? no. so what she had a PFA, what dont you understand about THATS HER DAUGHTERS FATHER!!!! do you honestly think she would have opened the door to let him in the house if she had known he was capable of murdering a 6 year old child? give me a break. and you know what, she made an excellent point, if she wouldent have opened the door, he would have gotten in anyway. dont you dare place blame on a grieving woman. dont you think she lives with the pain of this every day, every second of every day? it eats at her. she dont need you lowlifes coming on here and downing her as a woman and as a mother. dont you think she dosent already feel the guilt? not that she should cause ITS NOT HER FAULT, but dont you think she feels that everyday? your are all heartless sons of bitches to even interrigate, ridicule, and blame a grieving woman about her son. and the fact that he sat in court and laughed the entire time goes to show how much of a loser scumbag worthless piece of shit he really is. what kind of a "man" would put a knife anywhere near a child? dont blame it on him being raised by his father, blah blah blah, that has nothing to do with it. we create our own futures, you cant hold on to the past and blame the past for what you do in your future. and how our government treated him unfairly or whatever? give me a break. did anyone force him to do the drugs? did anyone make him ball his fists at a woman? did anyone make him put that knife to that child? no, i dont think so. he is not a product of poor raising, or anything else you are saying had him this way. hes a fucking cold blooded killer. and i hope he gets exactly what he deserves in jail. but you know whats gonna happen? hes gonna puss out and go into protective costody so the other inmates dont teach him his lesson, because he wasent a man to not kill a child, and he is not a man to face what he has done. hes gonna wait it out until the day he dies under the constant supervision of a security guard cause he is a pussy of a man. if he is ever let out of protective custody, your gonna find him laying in a corner somewhere,cause those inmates dont take rapists, child molesters, and child murders. no, justice was not served, cause he should be tortured every single day for the rest of his life until he dies for what he has done.

why dont you stop blaming this woman and get a life of your own. or maybe its that you feel guilty about something and would do anything to make yourself feel better.
you are all the lowest people for placing the blame on his mother.
get a life.
