Figures she would go to Great America -- that place is ghetto central and full of gang bangers. You can take the girl out of Englewood but...

Good for her. She's been through a lot. She should go out and have a nice time. She should clear her mind of all that misery and not have to spend every second of her life reliving this horrible tragedy. I like how people are giving her a hard time on her. What would you rather her do? Sit around and be depressed and dwell on this horrible incident until she goes crazy. Give her a break.

Jennifer's strength constantly amazes me. No one can even begin to criticize what she does after what she's faced and been through. It's over, Jennifer, now party and celebrate life~

So What!!! This was a horrible event in their lives. I'd ride a roller coaster too to take the stress off. Seriously folks, get over yourselves. Snarky comments about her being able to fit on the ride? grow up!

I'm glad she was able find a healthy outlet for her stress. What did you want her to do? Drink, take drugs? Would that have been more acceptable?

Good for you Jennifer. Move on...

instead of her being at GREAT AMERICA why she didn't go to her family grave site??? something is not right with this case.... in order for me to get child support ... my baby daddy asked for a DNA... it was a match... in BALFOUR case no DNA.. NO WITNESS seen him come out the house... and if you want to blame someone blame the family... they knew that the brother had a GUN AND DRUGS in the house.. nobody did nothing and the brother had already been shot 5 times in one leg... who did that... I HOPE HE WINS HIS APPEAL ... he was convicted on cell phone records ...so i don't like my ex do this mean i'm going to kill him....they convicted the wrong person.. should have convicted the family ...
