You have to wonder what has happened along the way to a woman for her self-respect to be so totally wiped out that she would think a convicted murderer is dating material. Makes me sad for and her son who has to grow up in that mess.

Are you kidding me? This man murdered your son's father, beat your grandmother and has a history of domestic violence and you are in a relationship with him, bring him into your house and around your children but didn't expect this to happen??? Mom get a grip and learn how to be the type of parent your child can look up to and admire. You are partially to blame for this.

Too bad he's stuck inside the quagmire of such a violent family. Really feel bad for the kid. If you've ever been in this general situation or had a friend go through this in their younger years you know how bad it affects a kid.
Mom may be there for him in some ways, but she really made him vulnerable to violence by allowing this sick guy into her life. Pretending this did not involve some degree of choice on her part is very paternalistic as one is then treating her as a child.
She and the dad had a primary parental duty obligation to their son, and it sounds like both sloughed it off to some large degree. You do not let known predators close to your child. Sad.
Didn't really read the article...this guy killed the father of the boy. What a twisted little world they live in :( Poor Boy! Good Thinking!:)

Maybe it was her that was the true mastermind, maybe he killed the boys father because the mother wanted him to and now she was trying to put him away so he could keep his mouth shut? OooOooo the other perspective, ponder this while the mother gets away with it

This kid is clearly more clever than his parentage should have allowed, as demonstrated by the fact that the mother was dating the man that killed her son's father just 13 years ago.

I'm guessing the kid is the adult in that household.

BINGO, especially on a school night. His friend must have been cramming for an exam and was using Facebook to get assistance on a calculus problem.

"Hart was convicted in 2009 of felony domestic assault involving another woman. He was sentenced to 12 years on the murder charge and served two-thirds of that time."

How can this person be convicted of murder in 1998, be released, then be convicted 11 years later for felony domestic assault and still be on the streets? We need the death penalty in Minnesota.

Good for the boy. How can the woman knowing that he caused the death of her son's father and the rest of his history have been involved with him in the first place?

This child needs to be taken into foster care, and the dirtbag mom needs to be imprisoned for stupidity. She is clearly not able to be responsible for her childs well-being.

Her "boyfriend" needs to sit in ol' sparky for a minute and society can be done with him.

How 'bout THAT libs? How is the liberal law-making and justice system working out for everyone?

"Correctional facility". Recovery "programs". Yeah, this is the Mark Dayton, Al Franken, Paul Wellstone, and Bill Clinton survival program. They can't vote for us if they are in prison, so get 'em out before the next election!!!

Thanks dimwitcrats for making our society dangerous to raise children in.

I don't understand "WHY" Mom is dating her Child's Fathers Cousin, after he murdered him. Really...she needs help. Hopefully she does not have another child, as her kids would be siblings plus cousins.

**Hart, 31, was convicted of the 1998 murder of his cousin, Willie Campbell the father of the boy who got on Facebook to protect his mother.

I believe it was the man who was murdered that beat the grandmother. Still not an excuse to kill a person. I'm not familiar with this type of behavior/culture, but I'm sure she's not the only one who ignores the past crimes of a signifigant other.
