There are several morals to this story: "You Can't Always Get What You Want" ... "Money---Money, Money (Donald Trump's 'Apprentice' theme song)... "Don't mess with a woman half your size."

Might have killed him to sieze certain assets, to get single again and count on the system to free her, because she`s 'just a woman'. As one woman said,'it was that time of the month'. Murder is murder, and where is inequality in the system, NONE of us are free. Would they had let a MAN go home after few hours, knowing he just strangled his wife??? America, watch this case; see how far we`ve come .Question is, in what direction.
Did You REALLLLLY Watch it???? If you did, You'd have seen that they'd just gotten married, there was no mention of insurance money or "assets", and, HELLO, if she wanted to be SINGLE, she would'nt have agreed to marry him after the third time of turning him down. So what she married for money, that's not illegal! He thought he would get a young foreign bride to appeal to his every command and when it did'nt go the way he planned, he felt he would strong-arm her the way he had his rape victim years before, but the medication he was taking deemed him weaker than he thought and he was'nt able to overpower MRS. Kelly Forbes the way he'd planned. So shame on him for trying to bully "just a woman" and having the tables turned on him, it ultimately got him KILLED! Such a shame. I hope Mrs. Forbes sees the JUSTICE she deserves.

I think it is TOTAL BULLSHIT that this woman gets 21 years in prison for what CLEARLY was an instance of SELF-DEFENSE and all these Bored WHITE housewives get slaps on the wrists. This woman had'nt been in the country 5 minutes when our "JUSTICE" system failed her. I whole-heartedly belive that she was defending herself when she strangled her drug-dealer/rapist husband. The woman had a daughter to protect for Pete's sake. There is no law against marrying a person for financial gain. SO WHAT if she was gold-digging. He attacked her and she had every right to defend herself. The prosecuting attournies in every state around the world are trained to make the defendant out to be a monster and they did just that in this case. I can only pray that she gets the FAIR trial she deserves SOON, before she has to spend any more time away from her daughter. I'm praying for you Kelly!

A tough one to figure out. Some people call him wonderful, others say he was a monster. I always go with the abused woman in these things because they are victims of obsessive behavior which can ruin a person's ability to think clearly. Sounds like he wasn't going to let her go and live peacefully, so she acted with uncontollable furor. But the justice system had no choice but to put her away.

I used to work at mr. Forbes salon in Brooklyn. He was a pervert. I was 19 years old. He made me feel very uncomfortable. I know he took advantage of me because he knew I needed the job badly and used that to his advantage. When I saw the show, I wad not surprised to see that it was a woman who ended his life. I don't feel sorry for him at all. He was a very bad person in my eyes. So.... There. People are making judgements about Kelly but I could just imagine what she had to put up with. Once a pervert jerk, ALWAYS a pervert jerk. He got what was coming to him. I knew him as such and unless you knew him, you wouldn't understand why I feel this way about the whole situation.

I agree with you. Keep it simple. She should have left when the first red flag was flown.

He got sprung over that youngen and wanted to control her but found that he couldn't. If he had money like that, why did he buy a house that far and not buy her car at the same time?

He wanted to tuck that youngen away, away from young men, and he dreamed of having a cute foreigner, naked in an apron, in the kitchen, who would be waiting for him to come home everyday.

Yeah right.

He didn't know what to do but get angry. That's probably what he has done for years and got away with it; often due to his size.

But just as easy she should have left, he should have too. But he got sprung.. She knew what was up. Dont let that face of hers fool you. A women can be twice as NASTY and vindictive as a man.

I learned from experience, but as you can see, I am free!

Just bounce before it gets ugly. A relationship starting off bad hardly ever gets any better.

She just struck me as an opportunist who only married for money. She always badmouthed him to people, but never once mentioned "abuse" to anyone until after he was dead. This gold digger is exactly where she belongs

i also saw this on snapped and i must say that i to is a trini anyway it is really clear that she did not even love or like this man.even in the wedding video.i think she should have took the nice gifts for as long as she could have and then leave if it was about the money.she should not have married someone she did not even want to touch.so now this is the price she has to pay when she could have just left.

And if u don't believe me hear this: this mans office was in the basement of his salon. There were cameras everywhere. Except for in the basement. And why do you think? Please all of you crying about him need to shut up because he was sent by the devil to harm women. I know because I was one of his receptionists in 2000. Get a grip. Stop boo-hoo-ing and be glad God handled his business.

This is a shame that none of you even paid attention to the fact that she is not Guilty for Murdering him.Micheal was a typical old Baller he wanted a fine ass mixed girl that none of his friends had she had 1 kid and she was in the medical field which lets you know ,This woman can hold her own!He liked her alot no doubt but maybe a lilttle too much he asked her to marry him 2x and she finally said yes. she felt like this guy could be the one he was doing everything for her. I would have let him too! however right after they got married is when it all got bad he showed her his ugly ass side n she couldnt do it but instead of giving up she kept her distance he didnt like that so he stressed his self had a heart attack and then got mad and jealous to kill her he tried and pulled as hard as she was on the cord around her neck.and he died he was a old dude with game and he tried to use his own money to get her to marry him. she should have walked he was wrong for attempting something he couldnt finish. no one deserves to die period. and no one deserves to go to prison for 21 yrs for defending themselves either. what if it happend to you? allyou guys keep saying is she should have left! When? they were married for two weeks and in that time he acted crazy that man has pull in the judicial system its obvious which is why he got off with attempted murder himself which is why he thought he would get away with it again!I feel so sorry for Kelly and her family she got caught up and i hope she gets an appeal and get out! my heart still gos out to michael Forbes family too!...also i would like to know wha prison she is in s that i can support her please reply to this post if u have it.

Witness: Hells Angels swarmed truck before Marin shooting

Testifying under a grant of immunity, the teenage girlfriend of a Marin murder suspect said Monday that their vehicle was surrounded by angry Hells Angels riders before the shooting that killed an associate of the biker organization.
The 18-year-old witness - identified only as "Monica G." in court - testified in the first day of preliminary hearings for El Cerrito resident Joseph Andrew Farnsworth, 20, who is charged with murdering Hells Angels associate William Maclean during a road-rage incident last May in Mill Valley.
Authorities said Farnsworth was a passenger in a red Dodge Durango when he fired at Maclean on northbound Highway 101 near Tiburon Boulevard. Monica G., a Richmond resident who was in the Durango's back seat, and driver Jessica Gordon, a 22-year-old Mill Valley resident, have both been granted immunity for their testimony against Farnsworth.
Monica G.'s testimony could lay the groundwork for Farnsworth to argue he fired in self-defense as a group of Hells Angels swarmed their vehicle during a dangerous traffic confrontation. But lawyers on both sides had difficulty extracting consistent information from the rel continued
Robert Daniel Thompson,Hells Angels motorcycle club member was in fair condition at U.C. Davis Medical Center after he was gunned down outside

Robert Daniel Thompson, a 43-year-old convicted sex offender and Hells Angels motorcycle club member was in fair condition at U.C. Davis Medical Center after he was gunned down outside The Shanty in Eureka late Friday night. In 2006, Merced County Sheriff's deputies arrested Thompson on suspicion of killing 12-year-old Jodi Marie Ragsdale and 15-year-old Sheila Carter on Dec. 13, 1986. The two girls' mangled bodies were found dumped alongside a rural road, their heads badly battered.
”These young girls were savagely bludgeoned to death and left out in a dirt road,” said Larry Morse, the Merced County District Attorney.“It really shocked the community.” According to Morse, Thompson was a suspect early on in the case. Department of Corrections information indicates Thompson had been released from prison just months before after serving time for weapons and drug possession.
”This was one of the most horrific crimes I've ever seen,” Morse said.“It was the kind of crime that was fueled by an incredible rage.” There was DNA evidence linking Thompson to the suspected murder weapon -- a car jack. And there was a witness. Thompson kidnapped a woman 10 days after the two girls were murdered, and drove her into a forested area to rape her. According to Morse, Thompson never raped the woman, but she later testified at the murder trial that Thompson had confessed to her he had recently murdered two girls.”It was a very difficult case because of the time here,” Morse said.“Many of the players frankly were not around, or memories had dimmed.” The first trial ended with a jury that hung eight to four in favor of his guilt. The second trial ended with his acquittal.”We were delighted he left Merced County,” Morse said.“There were a lot of people here who believed he escaped justice.” Throughout the course of the trial, Morse said members of the Hells Angels routinely came in to observe. Although no motive has been confirmed, authorities have stated that the shooting may have stemmed from an ongoing feud between the Hells Angels and a rival biker gang,continued
