Real bastard for killing GF.

News just reported that neighbours heard arguments just before he killed her.


So his alibi is a lie

I'm always afraid of really really nice men, the ones who look like they couldn't hurt a fly, or the ones who seem very kind, and innocent. These are the ones to watch out for. You know, the ones people say about, wow he was such a nice guy. I'm not saying that brutes, and rude and loud, and aggressive men can't hurt, because they certainly can, but the ones who are really really nice do it out of the blue, and snap. Just saying.

this guy doesnt think the rules apply to him. he should have never been allowed to run in the regular Olympics. He should have stayed in the Special Olympics with all the other retards.

In my opinion he went from being a person to be admired to being a person with a "little guy" complex. It's too bad that woman had to pay the price for the chip on his short little shoulder.

Get to know the person very well before you DATE or Move in with him/her.

Nowadays, the ones who are suppose to love you and adore you are the ones who actually end up killing you. Very sad.

not to make light of the situation, but just because you're born with a disability, doesn't mean you still can't kick someone's a$$

U ain't got no legs but you beating up women? Is that how we get over our lack of legs?

and who were the women who couldn't run away? he can't wear those things ALL the time...

Ok...I'm done with the puns. purely unintentional. but this stuff writes itself!

Maybe we should wait to hear the deets. Apparently he thought she was an intruder. Maybe he did not have his prostetic legs on and felt really vulnerable. I am sure my details will come. I think we are all guilty of arguing with our loved ones..he must be devastated if it was an accident. I am reserving judgement for now.

Might be nice if you gave the cir***stances surrounding the 2009 "assault" arrest.
The "victim" was at a party at his home. She had been drinking (which she admitted to police) and he had asked her to leave. She got angry and started banging and kicking his front door. He started to close the door when a wooden beam fell on her leg and injured her. For that she went to the police and reported that she'd been assaulted.

The least you could do is to accurately report what happened. But I guess the full story that wouldn't generate as much outrage about the alleged murder of his girlfriend.

Just think about it. If you were born without arms, why would you think the best thing for you to do is to try to become a concert pianist with your hooks? I am not being insulting, I was "handicapped" by childhood diabetes. His was an insane life. It really always makes me feel he is in a competitive freak show. But it is worse than that, apparently he thinks it is real and the rest of us have to believe it too? That right there seems like a very angry, dangerous and vicious existence.
