That cave n!@@er George Huguely not only kicked in the door to Yeardley Loves' room, but he also kicked her face in. That's why her eye was crushed. The irony is that Ms. Love didn't receive any love from this animal. The jury must have excrement for brains, this mayonnaise monkey should have gotten life in prison. White privilege at it's best. Spare me the OJ bs, Robert Blake also got away with murder when he blew his wife's brains out with a gun and the white community was silent on his acquittal. White on white crime is accepted behavior.

Thing is we should be grateful he got the 26 yrs. That is a long time to spend in prison. Next thing is we do not know what the emails or texts or calls were about that night before he went to Love's apartment. According to him in one report, she let him in, then walked in her room and closed the door in his face. We know she was almost or as drunk as he was. She had been drinking from early in the day and that night as well as he was. I don't believe he went there with the intention of killing her, but somehow it did escalate into that. I believe the jury believed the same and because of them both being drunk, the communication between them prior to the visit and the past history of fights and provocation all contributed to the 2nd degree verdict. Both lives along with others have been destroyed or ruined. Like the Attys. said, there are no winners. Too bad that the parents were not able to recognize the dysfunction throughout this 2 and a half yr. relationship and intervene. Not saying it is their fault, but it may have stopped this. Her mother and sister knew all about it and did nothing. Doubtful that his parents knew, but they surely knew what he was capable of from their own experience with him. Either way, life is over for both.

I think it is easy to judge and blame parents however maybe the parents tried to stop their relationship and neither would listen. "Love is blind" At that age it is difficult for parents to step in and help them to see dysfunction the way older adults see it. A very tragic and sad case. It is to late for YL, my hope is if one women or more sees that their relationship might mimic this they will end the abusice cycle.
