Looks seriously all I think is that this dumping on Lana has to stop. Seriously the things people say on here are awful. She's a human being who dosent deserve such hurtful words. She's gone through enough hurt and pain. I do not know her personally or anything like that but its just not right to treat her that way. Leave her and her family alone....have some decency and respect for her and her kids.

So since you don't know her, stop trying to defend someone you only know from a hollywood story. the paparrazi doesn't take time off or stop detailing every move of their subjects. Just get over it

Your alright I just don't understand why you are defending someone you don't really know. I do not know if these things are true about her.
I do know that brandon told her mom that she thought lana had set her up to be assaulted. I do not beleive she cared about brandon after all she only knew brandon for a very short time.

I see what your sayin and I understand but....I just don't like how people throw insults at her without even knowing anything. I mean there is always gonna be the he said she said bull but I mean they really run her down. I just don't think its right. I believe she did care a lot about brandon, even if she only knew him for a short time. Time dosent measure feelings. I mean everyone is entitled to their own opinion don't get me wrong.

Always thought it was weird that after they forced Brandon's pants down and are very rough with him. Lana says she has to go talk to her mom and leave him alone with the freaks. She said Brandon told her it was ok but that was Lana's account of everything. IMO Lana was more involved in this and I hope she has to deal with it everyday of her miserable life.

It's hatred and rejection that kills people.It's apathetic and pitiful and that Nissen and Lotter may still don't know what they did wrong from the beginning till they die.Maybe Lana had a crash on Branton and fell in love,but I don't know if she loved her in fact when she knew Branton was a "she".Truths are so confusing.

Somehow I felt Lisa Lambert did her best to shelter Branton,she was a very brave and decent young single mother. But why didn't the Tidsels call Branton before the murder they had already sensed? Was it out of scare that Lana did nothing?..What about Falls City today?Is this and the whole homo thing a forbidden topic?

When you say she's just as guilty as they are who do you mean by that? The lady that is with Tom, Lana or Teena Brandon? Everyone involved in this whole messed up ordeal needs some major therapy! Although anyone who knew Tom,John,Lana and Charlie and his "investigative crew" already knows that!! Who cares if she wanted to be a boy it was no one elses business. You could say it was the business of the person she was with and I would agree but why would it be anyone elses business.
I hope on the other end of the phone line Mr. Nissen finds a big burly cross dressing man waiting for him with no where else to go!!
I agree it was no one elses business but God and he will send them all to hell for being evil and teena for laying with the same sex..

Let me start of by saying everyone is holding on to what was in the movie as being the truth. The movie has somethings in it that were real and a whole lot of things that were not. Not one of you no exactly as to what the truth is. If Lana was at the murder scene some day she will have to face that. I am sure she has to deal with her life being torn upside down for many years. If you no anything about the truth you would know that Tenna and Lana only new each other for 2 weeks so to say she loved hIm would be an exaggeration. As far as her life now.. its ppl who keep bringing it up that won't let her live her life. I know a tragedy has came out of all this. Lies, deception,
betrayal, and lack of moral judgement is what started this whole thing. Im not notifying anyone deserved to die. Im saying not everyone was innocent or honest from the beginning. This happened in 1993, almost 20 years ago. Its time to just let things go and stop spreading rumors. If you don't no the truth then shut up about It. If it doesn't effect your life why are you worried about.
