This poor girl was forced to live with her mom and step dad lilley. She was taken from her real dad at a young age because he didn't have enough money to fight for her in court against these "I am greater than thee" mom and lawyer dad. And look what happens...your money can't bring her back now.
So what does this have to do with the price of tea in China?

They have been playing that game in the middle east since Moses was an independent,
it hasn't stopped them yet.

an eye for eye is right that is if you deliberately took someones eyes out to be evil so shall your eyes be pulled out at some point in time. Now if someone is deliberately threatening your life then maybe there might some forgiveness but other then that watch what you do because it always comes back no matter what. Always!!!!!!!!!!

I guess that is why people in the middle east are as cuddly as a roll of barbed wire.

and what charges do the parents get? Where are they at when all this is happening. they dont know that she is hanging out with a cokehead adult. these parents need to be looking after their kids and not blaming everyone else when something bad happens to them
FYI the parents had reported her missing they had been looking for everywhere. And Zachary knew that

It breaks my heart to see how un-compassionate some people on here can be. I knew both of these people and to say that it is just his fault is not true. It was her choice to take those pills whether or not she wanted to die. He is older but she was old enough to know what she was doing. Suppose he's telling the truth and they were wanting to die together; he is not a criminal, he needs help. Not to say that I don't feel horrible about this tragedy, but you can not blame it all on the boyfriend. Personal responsibility. RIP Brianna, we miss you.

<quoted text>i went to school with him all my life and never once did he pose a threat to anyone. but everyone needs to remember once people start drugs it changes them. he wasnt always that way and maybe still isnt. he should be evelutated for mental problems. and i dont believe that he is what you all have calling him a d bagg. seriously. yea he did a bad thing but no need for names like that you dont know what he has been thru or his life so i suggest you just mind your own busines.
who gives a crap .. I doubt anyone does about this little crybaby

Is this not a red flag people ? Who do we have running this city a group of incompetent idiots and liberal judges..??
That suicide was a good friend of mine, get bent for even bringing that up. That's completely irrelevant.

He does deserve life, you're right. But she was definitely a low life as well. Her parents weren't all that great either. It's partially their fault.

Receiving 9 years in prison for somehow forcibly giving a "child" (aka his 16 year old girlfriend) a lethal amount of Tylenol PM is just outrageous.
