An accident? Sounds more like a brutal assault by a bully with a criminal record for violent and abusive behavior.

Rebecca   May 7th, 2010 7:16 pm ET

Is it true that in a show of supposed "solidarity", the Men's team refuses to comment on this tragedy? Have any among them shown the compassion and leadership to say what happened was outrageous and inexcusable? If not, all are cowards, all were enablers, all should hang their heads in shame, including the coaches. This is no time for "solidarity."

Larry King, are the democracy's around the world based on the illusion of monetary worth? If so then if that currency is shown to be worthless then what happens to that democracy? This is being tested in Greece and could spread thru-out Europe and around the world as artificial worth of nations currency's are challenged and exposed as illusionary.

This sudden 1,000 point drop in a 30 minute free fall in America's Wall Street DOW stock exchange appears to be a Red Flag event deliberately called on by a high ranking Federal Treasury official.

This created emergency appears to have been used to discern the origins, groups and organizations who are using 'short' options and 'short' trading supercomputer algorithms to currently destroy Greece's economy, the Euro and now has Portugal, Italy and Spain in its gun sights.

What I find amazing is the utter greed of these groups and investment organizations. As billions lost millions of dollars around the world, these groups and investment organizations pocketed Trillions and bankrupted entire nations in the process. Now they have Greece, Portugal, Spain and Italy in its gun sights as they further devalue the Euro weakening all of Europe in the process.

Forced devaluation of a entire country's or nations currency by the insiders at the International Monetary Fund (IMF) is nothing new. On behalf of Bush sr. Panama's currency went to worthless as Bush sr. hoped that would cause Panama's people to toss out Noriega. On behalf of Bush jr. N. Korea's currency went to worthless as Bush jr. hoped that would cause N. Korea to stop it's Nuclear ambitions.

Is the IMF behind the destruction of Greece's economy and the Euro?

I do not believe it is, however with each successful campaign these nefarious investment organizations wages and nations destroyed, they are rapidly becoming as powerful if not more powerful than the entire IMF around the world. Both Bush's appear to have used the IMF for their corrupt and unethical political ends in literally blackmailing nations into their desired political direction.

The concern the International and American public should have is 'what if any political agenda does these powerful investment organizations and firms has on the world stage'? They are certainly as powerful as the IMF blackmailing a Nation down a specific political direction as the Bush Family values previously noted. BUT WILL THEY?

I do agree with a portion of the growing anarchists movement in Greece in their global view of the illusion that is dissolving democracy:

In a democracy, Money is King and rules the growth and direction of democracy, laws and its lawmakers.

When a nations currency is NOT backed by a solid commodity such as Gold, Silver, Land Standards on a 1:1 basis then that currency is entirely artificially inflated and has no inherent worth behind it.

AND as the illusion of a nation's currency value is exposed, the Democracy that Nations currency supports and props up is exposed as artificially propped up as well, ethereal and based on illusion.

It’s not unusual to still find people fixated in all the wrong things.
It’s like all those people who prepare food without first washing their hands. Or those others who measure success by how they compare to MTV Reality Stars.

Was Ms Love dating anyone new that might have set off this young man who killed her?????

Wall Street – Flash Crash – Is the casino honest May 7, 2010

I have said for years that wall street is controlled by “Big Money” insider trading, and the flash crash that occurred on May 06, 2010 @ 14:30 not only confirmed this, but showed everyone that the markets are manipulated to a greater degree than anyone imagined.

If an erroneous computer entry can swing the entire DOW Index 1000 points in a couple of minutes, then it is quite obvious that the markets can be controlled to whatever degree that big money decides in the same way. For years I have watched the markets make large swings and I knew then that it was traders “screwing” traders, but when the entire markets go into a meltdown like we saw yesterday, it shows me that there is not any honest money to be made on wall street.

Since the flash crash occurred yesterday, I have heard all of our experts try to give us a legitimate explanation for this crash, and every explanation sounds like a pack of lies to prevent more government regulation over the markets, and if yesterday was any example of what wall street has been up to for the past 30 years, then the worlds largest casino has stolen more than what we will ever know.

In a March 2010 [ RE: Pensions HR 3936 & 3455 pensions made simple] letter I sent you I explained how I was swindled out of $1,800,000 in wages and benefits over a 30 year period. Reports that I have read or seen on TV show that the same thing has happened to over half of the American citizens.

[1] An AARP report for 2007 showed that over 50% of retirees are living off of a Social Security check without a pension. I would guess that another 30% need Social Security to subsidize the petty pensions that they worked all of their lives for.
[2] A 2006 report showed that the average 401k had enough money in it to pay a retiree $8,000 a year. This is before the 2009 financial meltdown.
[3] The 401k’s lost 70% of their value during the 2009 financial meltdown. This means that more people will need Social Security when they retire.

How do the financial thieves continue to get away with their never ending thirst to embezzle and extort peoples money for their own personal gain?

Bribery & Blackmail: The wall street thieves have followed an age old example of building a legal shield around their organized crime syndicate. There is an old saying that goes like this: The best way for a thief to keep from getting caught is to surround himself with thieves. With 50% of our citizens with wall street portfolios it is easy to “pad” the portfolios of the people who may interfere with their organization. It is just as easy to penalize these same people by slowly shrinking and collapsing their portfolio. This is called “persuading” them to do things “OUR WAY.” This includes, but is not limited to elected officials, government oversight administrators, law enforcement officials, news media, business executives, and more than likely members of the Securities and Exchange Commission. [SEC]

NOTE: This does not imply that all of the people are involved in it, but if the shoe fits, where it!

Solution: There are two ways to protect the American citizens from the high tech gangsters that manipulate our financial system.
[1] Regulate the markets in a manor that would not allow for the uncontrolled manipulation of our financial system.
[2] Tax the markets to a level that would allow for the government to provide the necessary services that are required by the entire country and contribute to the Social Security Trust Fund so we can guaranty that every American will be provided with a comfortable income when they retire.

By implementing item 1 or 2, I realize that it would limit the number of millionaires that are created annually, but as the 30 year old saying goes, “there is not enough money for everyone,” in reality there is, but it is disproportionately distributed.

Amy   May 7th, 2010 9:10 pm ET

Are you kidding me right now? Is there nothing else newsworthy going on in the world? This happens EVERYDAY. This is NOT news.

Michael Armstrong Sr.   May 7th, 2010 9:14 pm ET

Some men view women as objects instead of human beings like they cant feel pain or have feelings .

RickFromDetroit   May 7th, 2010 9:18 pm ET

This was a tragic incident and I expect many people regret it, even the murderer.

Michael Armstrong Sr.   May 7th, 2010 9:22 pm ET

Love gets confused with owner ship .

John   May 7th, 2010 9:28 pm ET

So this horriable act is everyone else's fault. It was a relationship gone bad with a kid who was never taught how to control his anger. Now its the school's fault, the coach's fault, his friend's fault... Its this kid's fault who will be held accountable. We hold athlete's to such high esteem. We need to have more hero's that just jock's, people who make a lot of $$, who look pretty, or do outrageous acts.

I also feel the jab that 8 out of 48 lacrosse players were involved in alchol issues blames the school. I guess we need to kick out all students involved with alcohol. Wow, 70% of college students are gone, 50% of high school students, and 40% of middle school students are out. I wonder where they get that alchol is acceptable (how much $$ is spent by beer/alcohol on advertising for our sports programs???). We wonder why our kids grow up this way but do nothing to stop it because it is 'everyone' else's fault.

Lily   May 7th, 2010 9:28 pm ET

I am presently listening to Robin Givens talk about domestic violence. I find I do not want to listen to spokes persons like her because she should be sending the message that "abuse is not okay period". The statistics support that the number of women abusing is rising every year. Any violence program is not going to work until everyone takes responsibility for their actions.

Smith in Oregon   May 7th, 2010 9:31 pm ET

Ok CNN tonight opens the flood gates of questions regarding L. Taylor with bringing on Robin Givens former wife of Mike Tyson. Mike Tyson was accused and convicted of rape, and served a relatively long prison sentence.

And L. Taylor get's a pass? He is charged with rapping a under aged minor. Additional extremely troubling allegations include paying the child 300 dollars for prostitution, a pimp that brought the child to his motel room expressly for sex acts, and the child's statement that alleged that she was held as a sex slave, beat up and forced to perform sex acts to collect money as a prostitute for her pimp. She was beat again by her primp just prior to her being delivered to L. Taylors motel room.

L. Taylors million dollar attorney team is apparently making the Kobie Bryant she said, he said defense PLUS using the excuse of no DNA evidence being collected by the prosecution.

Ok well is this show going to give a pass on L. Taylor while bashing Mike Tyson who went to prison for his crimes?

RickFromDetroit   May 7th, 2010 9:32 pm ET

This could be a tetesterone problem. I saw an incident one time where an elephant in India trampled a bunch of people to death.

Deb   May 7th, 2010 9:37 pm ET

It's not talked about much,but there are women that are abusers too. There are few resources for men with kids trying to escape. I know a young man with 2 sons.I have seen the burns,the belt marks,he black eye,the tears.I have seen her in action.

Dodie   May 7th, 2010 9:54 pm ET


I completely agree with you. Wall Street is controlled by 'insider trading' from those in power or in a fiduciary position utilizing non public knowledge. The Dow index plummeting 1,000 points within one day is an excellent example. The American public has experienced colossal embezzlements of gigantic proportions. Between Wall Street and the banks, the American taxpayer has been strategically stripped of their money through experts in the art of 'smoke screening' techniques. Wall street is not only the world's largest casino, it is organized "white collar crime"!

I consider this to be the "crime of the century"

Thank You Rick from Detroit. Hopefully other people will read your post and start to gather a glimmer pertaining to the massive removal of funds from the American taxpayer!

RickFromDetroit   May 7th, 2010 9:55 pm ET

There are chemical "love plugs" [a hypnosis] that can be used on individuals, and many women use them on men. These "plugs" will make you fall in love with someone you have never met. The use of these plugs are well known in certain areas of the country and it should be a criminal offense to possess these chemicals and implement these procedures without the individual knowing about it.

Sharlotte   May 7th, 2010 10:07 pm ET

This is regarding the last comment that was just made regarding women declining to go to court or to file a restraining order against their abuser:
Most women are reluctant to do so because the abuser usually just gets a "slap" on the wrist and will usually be out of jail in a couple of days. The retaliation of the abuser when they return from incarceration is always much worse, This usually leads to more extreme physical harm and even death when the woman gets the strength to speak against her perpetrator and the law can't protect her.
Please refrain from making comments if you have never been on the abused end of the situation. Fear and the lack of protection plays a huge part in domestic decisions. So how about let's CHANGE THE LAWS REGARDING PROTECTING THE ABUSED!

Carol of Bethesda   May 7th, 2010 10:11 pm ET

Two comments:

First, what responsibility do parents, schools and coaches share in dealing with out of control abusive behavior? George Hugely didn't come into this world like this...'

Second, the ADA from Florida suggests going to Court to get a restraining order in abusive cases. At least in Maryland, it's difficult to obtain a restraining need to prove imminent danger.

Dodie   May 7th, 2010 10:13 pm ET

@ Smith in Oregon

Very interesting conceptualization addressing world economic impact! You made some excellent and valid points. Thank You

Rena   May 7th, 2010 10:43 pm ET

A woman needs to figure out what it is that is setting her husband/boyfriend off, and then not do those things. If he thinks she's looking at other men too much, then she should curtail that behavior. If he's constantly calling her when she is out of the house to, quote unquote, check up on her, then perhaps she should consider staying home, even if that means giving up a job. I am speaking from my own experience here. Things got so much better at home when I began doing this. And before anyone asks, yes, I asked my husband's permission before posting this comment. Perhaps there would be less domestic violence if women learned to submit to their husbands again, as they did in previous centuries.

gerald Jolly   May 7th, 2010 10:45 pm ET

Why does these kind of things happen.

Parents need to step up and assure their daughters that they must discuss who they are dating, and advise their daughters that being hit or verbaly attacked is not O.K. "EVER"

Parents of sons, that dont advise their sons that hitting is not alright, and are just as guilty as the son that would strike and brutalize a female.

What have we become, here in America, where we think it's O.K. for a man to hit or abuse a woman.

In my opinion the responsibility lies with the parents that will not take the matter into their own hands when they have a son that is an abuser of women.

This begins at a very early age, when boys smack their own sister and the parents do nothing about it.

College athletes, are far to much held to some higher degree of importance while the student with a 5pt. GPA is considered a nerd.

Schools beginning with 1st grade need to incorperate programs that teach young girls that being hit by a male is not acceptable and needs to be reported immediately to the school principle, at which point severe reprecussions is mandated and the boy is punished to the fullest extent of the law.

How many more young women need to die in this senseless manner before affermative action takes place.

I am of the opinion, that when a boy strikes a girl, he should have too take on the biggest and meanest male in that school and see what it feels like to be smacked and not be able to retaliate.

CJ.   May 7th, 2010 11:14 pm ET

Tonights Domestic violence segment was full of propaganda.
Truth is the abuser, like a narcicist sees people as toys. " mirror", was the only correct word. The narc may project his likeness on victim as a way to atack himself and like a "vampire" mimic his or her virtues.
They want to control another whose purpose is to provide evidence of the narcisistics existence, pleasure and what ever else serves them.
There is no "you,, another person with his or her own traits for the narc. to like. He doesn't think of your mind, how you feel about anything let alone being hit. Anarcisist , violent or not, he or she, loves what you can do for them.

This Tyrany is different than the recent development of people who raised to be violent pron and dont deal with emotion. Violence becomes a first resort in conflict, as well as play and sows up in male and female relations as well as same sex friends.

Dodie   May 7th, 2010 11:29 pm ET


So if your husband accuses you of dreaming, you will change that too? You do not understand the concept and dynamics of domestic violence. You would be a prime target for an abusive relationship as you continue to focus on 'your' behavior and not addressing the responsibility of your mate's behavior.

SJMF   May 8th, 2010 12:21 am ET

Robin Givens – You are right on!! I have 4 sisters, 3 daughters, 4 nieces and I can't tell you how much I want to empower all of them with your message. I have never seen you speak on the subject – not surprised given your experience which seems so much more blatant from the character you were involved with – there are so many more subtle situations, which I hope hear you. THANK YOU!!

jack   May 8th, 2010 1:05 am ET

Prostitution should be legalized , regulated for health concerns and taxed like any other business. That would largely dry up the pimp trade and the slave trade. It is just an example of another victemless "crime" that should not be a crime. If anyone does violence or cheats , that is the crime.
This has parallels with the victemless "crime" of selling or using cannabis. As long as the trade is controlled by illegal cartels, it will have cheating, robbing, and violence. Again, the harmless medicinal herb could be regulated for purity, taxed, and sold to all adults that need it for personal use. The enormous benefits in tax savings, lives not wasted, and new revenues collected (not to mention personal liberty issues) are self evident.

Dodie   May 8th, 2010 1:30 am ET

@ jack

A breath of fresh air. Really enjoy your world perceptions! Thank You Jack

Smith in Oregon   May 8th, 2010 2:23 am ET

@ jack, you have to consider that many drugs are illegal along with prostitution because those that make a great fortune from supplying those items also have Republican lawmakers in their pockets which keep those from legalizing, taxing and drying up the Mafia and Cartel business's.

Meg   May 8th, 2010 3:59 am ET

The Prosecutor stated that it was the abused women who were at fault for not pressing charges. That is so short sighted. There are many valid reasons women stay and don't press charges. a) Statistically speaking, women are more likely to be killed after they leave their abuser. b) Many shelters who take abused women won't take boys over the age of 12, so if a woman has boy children over 12, she can't take those children with them. c) Restraining orders are only enforced after the abuser breaks the order. d) If a woman is with a man, at least she knows where he is and she can protect her children. e) Many abused women are indigent if they leave home and have no way of providing for a roof over their family's head. f) Stockholm Syndrome g) Many Prosecuting Attorney's have poor records for successfully prosecuting wealthy white men of domestic violence. h) Many times the men are found guilty of lesser charges and are not put away for a substantial amount of time, leaving the women vulnerable to his retribution.

Kim   May 8th, 2010 4:14 am ET

Robin Give
ns is not MY story...she is NOT the face of Domestic Violence. She barely knew what to say tonight. Denise Brown's sisters interview was so much better.
I am a survivor of Domestic Violence and the way Robin Givens conducts herself does not do anything to education people on DV.

Cindy   May 8th, 2010 10:22 am ET

@Dodie, Smith,
Smith, your description of what happened on Wall Street Thursday in about 20 minutes is not quite accurate. There are too many exchanges and when the NYSE slowed as it should when there is unusual activity, there was a rush to other exchanges. This is something that needs to be studied further as they should all function the same. The investigation is still underway. And it has nothing to do with either President Bush.

frank shadow   May 8th, 2010 5:41 pm ET

The showing of Tammy Faye Baker in her last days was horrific and in exceptionally poor taste. I'll remember her as a bubbly persona who tried to help people with her T.V. show

joni   May 8th, 2010 7:26 pm ET

Another beautiful girl, murdered by her boyfriend/husband, how many more of these kinds of cases are we going to hear about? It's so terrible. My heart goes out to her family and friends.
I hope this guy gets life in prison, without any chance of parole. Sounds like he's a real jerk, a spoiled brat, who gets away with being big and loud and pushes people around.

Beverly Darling   May 8th, 2010 9:26 pm ET

The character of the daughter Meg seems to be harassed by her father Peter and other members of the family and there doesn't seem to be any reason why. What happened that makes Meg the target of so many cruel jokes or worse, when they treat her so awful?

Dodie   May 8th, 2010 9:29 pm ET

@ Cindy

Your post is not accurate! I never mentioned Cheney/bush in my post! I agree, it should continue to be investigated and I would like to see all of it regulated.

Interesting comments.


Sounds like this chap couldn't accept rejection and more.......

G. Washington   May 9th, 2010 6:12 am ET

Now let me first say that this girls death is a tragedy not only for her family and friends but for the University of Virgina aswell. Anytime a child is taken in such tragic circumstances we all should sit back a be thankful for the health and safety of our love-ones. That being said i can't sit here and not mentioned the fact that all the attention toward this case is somewhat heartbreaking. There are hundreds, heck maybe even thousands of teenage murders that go without an ounce of ink or press coverage every year. I can't help but wonder if this were someone of color would the press coverage be so extensive? I hope the answer is yes but i'm no fool and the reality is that if this were a black or latin female athlete, the news would be but a footnote in the back of some backwater newspaper in anytown USA!!!

gerald Jolly   May 9th, 2010 10:52 pm ET

Trust me, if these women abusers knew that the penalty for abusing women would be castration, none would happen.
