    I just don’t get how you can torture, break dozens of bones and stab someone….. they escape after hours of being captured and it’s NOT Attempted murder.. If she hadn’t of escaped would she be alive today? War Machine even tried to commit scuicide in prison, IMO he was going to beat her to death then kill himself. To me it’s nuts.

    War Machine turned down a plea of 18-40 yrs. Hope they give him the MAX the way he snickered and grinned in court showing absolutely NO REMORSE at all and still saying he’s Not Guilty.

Got something to say?
