any woman wasting their time on a person in prison for violent crimes is a complete fool. She is degrading herself, her families,friends and putting her childrens safety at risk. Generating empathy from ones soul to another human being is a wonderful gesture but misdirected on the inmate population.they are incarcerated to be punished,not to be rewarded for their crimes. Find a bad boy who is free if thats what u like..ya I like too, but not locked up wasting my life away for anybody else and sucking the resources out of me. Been there done that....it dont work for a really good woman.dont berate your intellegence.

I honestly think if the police department took their hands out of their asses and arrested those two for rape then those three people would still be alive. I think that people should just let other people be who they want to be. Where I'm from, people respect people because we are civilized. We don't go shooting every trans, bi, gay, or lesbian we see. I'm actually one myself and let me tell you, things are much much better here. No ones ever been shot or assaulted for being gay or trans. Why? Because we comprehend that people are not the same. We're all different and that's ok because god made us this way. Also, to those who think being gay or trans is a choice. It is not. It never has and never will be. Some people do it because they're desperate but most of us do it because it's who we are.

For Lana I'm not sure but for her mother of course. She probably gave them all the directions and where to find her and everything. She even told them to clean up whatever evidence they had after they raped Brandon. I am with you on the charges for her mother.

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.
Absolutey right. Having read some comments, in particular one accusing someone of defending someone they don't know, which is tantamount to accusing that same person, I think reality has to kick in: Nobody here knows anything like enough of the truth so comments here should be taken as factual as the movie.
It is a nonesense to make assumptions as fact when they are based on fiction.
Get over it, we know little and Lana Tisdel has every right to move forward.

Get off your self-righteous backside, you condescending moron. God can judge only those who accept him. Not everybody does and you most certainly do not speak for them nor him.
There is no god, get over it and enjoy your life.

Do you believe everything you see on tv? From someone who new her pretty well she's hardly white trash and had every right to sue. She's a real person not just a person involved with a sensational case. One of the strongest, bravest, most remarkable people I have ever met.
So, you knew lana and teena? Plz write back.

The real truth is Lana and her mother are trash...and "skanky snakes"...I saw the movie and documentary and actually I think the movie was real easy on her compared to how SHE actually portrayed herself. Hicks defending hicks don't make it right!!! She was a coward who failed or refused to defend or assist someone she knew was in trouble. I mean you would leave a person you say you cared for with people who had just bullied and degraded him in front of you and think that they were safe...honestly people come on...they have two more people that should have been tried as accomplices or at with accessory after the fact. She knew they where out for blood because they had told her as much and her trashy ass mother gave up Brandon's location which I feel she help contribute to the murder. But I guess when you surrounded by ignorance, you don't know any better. I personally think that this tragic story is a miscarriage of justice. Brandon was not on trail an NOTHING he did or said or lead others to believe was worth losing his life for. And as for Lana she proved she is white trash...a husband who sells meth...sounds about as trailer park as you can get.#JUS_SAYING

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.
Don't really know what hurt or pain she has gone thorough because she could have prevented al of this by making one call...and her mother sent the killers so if she is going through anything...it is well deserved. And she or her backwards ass family didn't have any respect for Brandon..all I saw was a bunch of backwoods ass rednecks smirking and trying to justify killing a person who happens to be different.. so who cares if her feelings are hurt...Boo F'ing Woo!!! Save your respect for the families of the victims...

She does have every right and as supporters so do we! I am not judging based on the movie but on the documentary, in which Lana portrayed and spoke for herself, and from official court transcripts. She might not have been at the scene but her and her mother were both aware because the killer had stopped by their home first, where Lana's mother informed them of Brandon's whereabouts. So yes I agree don't comment without facts but don't comment if you haven't properly did your research either...just saying!!! And just because it happened 20 years ago doesn't make it any less relevant now...just today bullies are forcing their victims into killing themselves instead. Think about the things you say...atrocities don't diminish or become less felt over time and should never stop being recounted or re-told.

The way she changed her story many times when asked other questions, and how she denied everything, makes u wonder. Also her being friends with John and Tom before dating Brandon makes u think she had alot to do with everything. Them being Supremicist ,i can just imagine why they killed Brandon.
