*** look up two blogs*****You say you don't know the Tom Green family...

You said you don't know the Tom Green family, you seem a little harsh, your just someone who is just reading the blogs making your own opinion. WOW!! Thats a pretty harsh opinion on someone you dont know at all. None of the people on here are even that harsh towards the girls.. It must be something in the water then because 'Don't like Molesters, Youll know me BM, Open Minded Realness,you all trash talk everyone pretty much the same way and have this crazy way of spelling your words and sounding all gangsta like, I could be wrong, but it just seems a little fishy to me..

Well it's not really over and Im guessing it wont be for awhile so these girls won't be just chillin takin it easy for a really long time and maybe will even end up behind bars themselves for pergery. I mean who knows, all I know as this doesn't make a lot of sense, there stories don't make a lot of sense and by the way the reply and the language they use I would use the word credable very lightly when talking about these girls.

I have a hobby these blogs are my hobby. I find reading your blogs amusing. I have never read anything more stupid then the crap you write.
these girls (you) are not poor they are rich they have $20 thousand a piece. If what you are saying is true he paid 50 bucks a day
by the way you are trash im sure you were told this everyday of your life from your family im a stranger and i agree with them neglect was the way to go.
we can see that maybe you should pick up a new hobby or get a job and all these girls were not paid so you dont know what you are talking about

So we are adding Rapist the list so lets see..
RAPIST, CHILD MOLESTER,CHILD ABUSER, DRUG ADDICT,(THOUGH WE AREN'T CLEAR ON WHAT DRUGS THEY ARE) DRUG DEALER (WICH WOULD MAKE YOUR MOM A DRUG ADDICT BECAUSE ACCORDING TO YOU TOM GREEN WAS GIVING THEM TO HER,but that couldn't be true because you yourself wrote that she USED to have a drug problem, meaning not anymore),HE CHEATS ON HIS WIFE, HE BEATS HIS CHILDREN, am I missing anything. Im sure I am I would just have to weed through all the crap first and I really dont feel like dealing with all that smell right now.Its just that the list doesn't end, you should of made it simple but you didn't, you had to get all crazy with yourself and now its all just a big joke.. Its funny that everyone on here doesn't believe this except for your parent and friends why is that. Total strangers including myself find this an impossible story to believe based on the information you yourself have given..
I agree with you - maybe these idiots will next accuse Tom Green of assassinating JFK, MLK (that's Martin Luther King for the idiots who cut school and can't spell) and possibly Abe Lincoln. Now let's see what else these idiots can come up with. Just a side note - if I woke up to someone molesting me - I'd scream so loud they'd hear me in Russia and he'd have some serious bite marks and scratches.

Well BMs mother, aunt, friend, whoever you are if you look back on the blogs you will see that BM herself said that he paid her $50 dollars everytime she saw him which again she said she saw him everyday pretty much.So you are saying they didn't get paid and she is saying they did who should we believe..

You or your friends put an innocent man in Prison with the help of your evil mother.
Women will kill for love and your mother used her own child to get even with Tom Green for not loving her back, and not falling for her flirtation.
The problem he has it is difficulte to prove in court!!!! You won in court with stupid lies but you lost in life, the guilt will stay with you forever.Your evil mother put you up to it and you went along.
You still have the chance to change evil and tell the truth and no one will blame you for being used by adults for evil.
You said that Tom Green gave you an attitute may be he wanted you to stop being his grandchild friend and for your evil mom to stop flirting with him but you kept coming back and how does it look that a grown up man tell a little girl do not come back to this house because your mother is a pain.
May be you had fights with his grandchild and what kind of a grandfather will not give an attitude???? to a child who torment his grandchild????
This is hard to prove in court

What about the drugs that you claim he gave your evil mother may be that was a reason for a desperate drug user like your mother that suddenly her supply was stop cold.
also this is hard to prove in court.
So you see your mother had many reasons to use you and make you lie for her evil.She got the Idea to use you when he was aquitted so she decided that all will belive you because they can not belive him the second time around. so you see you were used and abused by your own mother and not by Tom Green ,his home was the only home that gave you what a home should realy be. I'm sorry for him and for you but more for you if you do not correct the EVIL your mother did to YOU BM and Tom Green.

Its crazy that they say NY has some of the best school systems yet none of you can write a correct sentence or spell. "I think you all crazy" what is that, shouldn't it be "I think you are all crazy, Or even this watch out I know it's tricky but how about " I think your all crazy", see what I did with that R. It's crazy!!!! Just thought I'd throw that out there because it's not like "Puss" is alone in this??

um let me just say that on a jury of 12, also strangers .. he was convicted .. they belived it was true .. strangersss .. soo why cant u belive it .. honestly just think for a second if it could . dont u feel bad for the grandaughter(if its true) that he grandpa might of done it .. she ofcourse might of denied it .. cause who wouldnt . her grandfather was sitting right in front of her .. i would prob say no nothing happened if i was her ... but if it was true .. dont u people feel the least bit sorry .. i no u people might of loved him .. but soo did and maybe still does the grandaughter .. and for the anwser as to why the girls went back there .. have u ever been hurt by someone and still went back to that personn ,,, i no somneone hass .. they were little girls that didnt know anybettter at the time .. they didnt know what molestation was at 7,8,9,... i know i didnt .. they realized when they got older that it was wrong .. maybe you think there storys dont make sense .. well it was a long time later .. ofcourse its confusing .. they kept going back cause they didnt know it was wrong .. the parents let the kids go down to their house not because they were badd parents .. but because they trusted tom and thoughtt he was a good mann,, .. everyone trusted him so it was sooo easy for him to get away with and maybe that is why it is soo hard to belive .. but please just tryand think for a minute .. if it could be .. if it was ur childd... honestly if it was ur daighter.. if it was u .. at 6 years old .. did u know it was wrong ,, or would u be to scared to tell .. i would .. remember a jury of 12 .. which means they didnt know the girls at all found him gulty .. think about it

well i seen the newspaper and "wrongly Convicted" is a JOKE! everyone who lives around him know his GUILTY! Wrongly convicted all over a stupid picture which they cant tell when it was taken, And KODACK cant either, and all over because of a stupid sign/labble on a Tshirt,Sweatshirt, come on now how is that suppose too justify that this sick man did not molest these poor childeren? some body please tell me, And if this child forgot the DATE and hour of the crime, doesnt mean it never happened? Do you remember when you were a young child and you had your first icecream cone? or the first time you had your first kiss? Probly Not. Why do you think these poor girls want too remember every little detail ? you people really need too put yourself in there shoes and take a look around.

Again, you twist the facts around for your gain. Here are the facts...the photo proved he didn't know the girls in the time frame they said and IT Was verified in a court document by the Kodak company as well as the sweatshirt logo in the picture was also verified in a court document. So right there it proves that YOU are the liers. We could really give a crap about what his ignorant white trash neighbors think..because they are morons if they believe just the words of these girls without knowing the facts and THEY DO NOT KNOW THE FACTS!!! Now all of a sudden she can't remember the exact date when these crimes supposedly happened? That's funny because in court she recalled in detail on the stand the day it supposedly happened 10 YEARS AGO and what she did and where she was the entire day including McDonalds, Sports Plus Eckerds and Blockbuster. Funny how now her memory is a little fuzzy. That's because she is a compulsive LIER!!!And because It never happened and she made the whole story up...but you know what I do believe she was molested but probably by someone in her own family!!!

Just another little fact..yesterday afternoon she(barbara the accuser) was in the car with her boyfriend and tried to run over the grandchildren of Thomas Green. What type of people would try to run over 6 and 8 Y.o children? She plays it off like she is a victim and wants to help other people.."little miss innocent" and then tries to run over little children..Maybe you get the idea now what kind of people these are..By the way, the boyfriend was arrested and the family will be pressing charges.
