    Things didnt happened the way it’s made out by the media this is my sister. Your making her out to be something that she’s not. Everyone gets angry and does things out of rage but not one person is dead or badly injured. The main ones that suffered in this whole ordeal is my niece and nephew. Never believe the media.


      William, I knew your sister at MSU and she was a very friendly, intelligent and positive person. I agree with you that people should not be so swift to judge her as they do not know all of the details surrounding the situation. I’m praying and wish the best for her and your family.

    All that is probably true but let’s be honest. If the man were the abuser he would have been guilty without any benefit of “not be so swift to judge”. Also, abuse is abuse no matter what sex of the abuser. Most acts of violence are out of rage and NOT planned. That does not negate the reponsibility of an adult to act responsibly and to pay for their actions. I am quite sure there are members of Charlie’s family who feel different. He is loved by someone who does not want to see your sister or anyone else inflict harm on him. No one has a justified right to abuse. Also it is not the proper thing to demonstrate to children.
