She is in a hospital because 1. She needs psychological help.. 2. Bc even though they have charged her they have mot sentenced her.and 3. Why does it matter if she is behind bars or in a hospital. Either way she is on lock down, and isn't a danger to anyone especially herself.

No one from Shawna's family or Shawna called the news station. We didn't have to several friends did after they say the condition she was in from the attack! Get your facts straight before you open your mouth!
If you are truly Shawna's mother please do what a real mother would do and encourage Shawna to stop this now. Admit to her wrong doing and get her the help she has so desperately needed since childhood. The truth is coming out, and we all know she was never threatened. What has happened to her has been her own doing. Encourage her to tell the truth so the family can heal. So she can get the help she needs. Let her atone for her wrongdoing. The kids will always love their mother and forgive her for what she has done. Our community is a loving and giving group of people and will forgive her for what she has done if she will admit it. Do the right thing for your daughter.

She is in jail for now! Kelly Halford Rose is a kick *ss attorney and our prosecuting attorney is weak. I bet Rose gets her out off on some minor technicality and then she won't be getting the help she so desperately needs. Her family isn't doing her any favors trying to get her off, they need to get her help! Rose is going with the claim that Shawna was forced into the confession because she felt threatened by the police and was scared for the life of her daughter.

I have volunteered in mental hospitals before. I think I would rather be in jail than one of those places. It was pretty grim. They watched the patients go to the bathroom and shower so they weren't doing anything dangerous to themselves and since Shawna has proven she can do harm to herself, I'm sure she's on watch 24/7.

But she beat the shit out of herself! That's different than taking the rap for your daughter. That takes a sick mind. Kelly Rose may be good, but the jury isn't going to be that stupid...I hope. Besides, if her daughter was in danger, wouldn't they have SOMEONE else they are looking at? There are no other suspects. Everything goes back to SHAWNA!

Grandma Margie, you are totally right. I went to school with Shawna from the first grade all though highschool. There was something very "off" with her even back then. Stanci and Sheri were different. They seemed to be cut from a different cloth. Shawna was very disruptive in class and there WAS a problem. I don't know if the school got involved, but I'm not sure if they would have listened. I had an item disappear from my home after she spent the night with me one night, and I was not allowed to play with her anymore. She asked my parents how much our home cost, how much my dad made for a living and things like that when we were only about nine years old. I kid you not. Normal children don't think that way. I guess the only way she could come into some easy money was to break the law. After she set the first fire and got an insurance payout, she was hooked like a dopehead with a a crackpipe. I only wish I could go on the vacations they did. That was all insurance money. Now OUR premiums will go up becuase of frauds like her. So yes, the BARNS family is just at much in this too. Kenny did not turn Shawna into the woman she is today. He married a bad seed.

Saw the family, well minus 1 at the fair on Saturday!!!! Bahaha... Kenny sporting his Jobe's Auto Repair shirt, if people were from out of town to come see the fair, they certainly knows who he os now. Bad time to be advertising if you ask me. They were acting like nothing wrong or different..Oh I so wanted to ask if he had been down the street for visiting hours.

A Mother/Daughter relationship can be a very powerful one. I am 38 years old, but I still want to please my Mother. Lukily, it has always been a healthy relationship, but I can only imagain that she is brainwashed by Shawna. She was a compulsive liar at a very young age but in a weird way, even though any common sense would tell you What she was selling you wasn't true, you would still wonder, "well, maybe." It wasn't until she told me a real whopper when we were in highschool and that was that she had "terminal cancer." Okay, that was the last time I even considered believing her. I asked Stanci and she looked at me like I had two heads and SHE told me her sister had no such thing. So, Shawna is still Shawna to this day and sadly, Katelyn has been under her spell for so long. She will just have to figure it out on her own. Very sad though because she is a beautiful young lady and Shawna didn't need to get in her business and make friends for her. She could have done it all on her own. From what I understand Shawna inserted herself into every aspect of Katelyn's life. She doesn't know HOW to break that strange bond. I don't know if you can ever fix what's broken here.

I have found it is best to teach your children to get along with but navigate AWAY from the sneaky and fake people in this world. Thank goodness.

That is the BEST advise you can offer you kids. Get along with them, however, keep them at arms length. If your kids try to confront those types, they will just create hell for your them. It's best just to keep quiet, stay away, and avoid confrontation. When my Mom no longer wanted Shawna around, of course I never told her that. I slowly just started making new friends, was still cordial to her but not in a backstabbing way, but slowly slipped out of her life. She liked to control her friends, so she gravitated toward the kids that had lower self esteem. I felt sorry for them, but I had to protect myself.

Apparently, over 20 people showed up at Shawna's court date to support her and get her bail reduced. Thank God Judge Shackelford didn't fall for it. They "supporters" of Shawna were telling him they would watch her 24/7. Where were these "supporters" when the fires being set?
Were they true supporters or looking for a circus show? You saw how people were literally getting trampled at the Casey Anthony trial. People love that stuff. Micael Jackson's and O.J's trials were the same. People gravitate toward it like it's a movie. Well, if they were in fact supporters, twenty people isn't a lot compared to how many people she used to know from church. I feel like she's some kind of cult leader or something. I don't get it. It's just so cut and dry to me. I see exactly what she was doing and what she's about. What is there to argue. We're not talking about one single charge, we're talking about many charges. I want to know ONE person or family that has had five legitimate house fires. Just one. If someone can provide me with that, maybe I'll reconsider.

Kenny may not have turned her into a this bad seed but he did water and feed it and helped it grow instead of retarding it's growth..And yes I have seen the family at several different outings and they act like nothing is wrong,I know if it was my spouse or one of my parents I would not go out in the public unless I had to until all this cools down..I have a concious and I would feel very ashamed..

There is nothing wrong with her still loving her mother. Please, leave her alone. This is very hard on her and the whole family! It's only been a couple of weeks or so.
