    I'm shocked at the way our legal system works. A woman stabs a man and gets 1 year in jail. If the relationship was that bad then she should have left long before it came down to murdering someone. She says that he had abused her for along time. Then why did she stay in the relationship? David might have had his false but he didn't deserve to die. My sympathies go out to the entire Hogg family.

    Whoever thought they needed to start all of this by saying killing was too good for him should have minded their business! I agree, we are all hurting here and they chose the lifestyle they lived. However, you are able to see, touch and talk to your sister. Stop trying to justify what's been done by putting him down, he was a person, a human being, my baby brother a he's gone!

    A man is dead & his girlfriend (& her accomplise) are in jail. No one wins, how about a little respect? He isn't reading all these things you have to say, his family is. Get a hobby, get a life!!

    Oh, "I didn't know children were involved now." lol. Lets see didn't someone make a comment "that everyone knew he was a women abuser"? Looks like she had the choice to stay or leave. No, I have never been beat by a man, I had the choice when i thought i was in danger to call the police and take myself and file a restraining order. I don't care if she meant to do it or not. She had choices, she took a life. I will not post any more comments because most of you are ignorant and i don't have time for ignorance. It is to bad she can't take one more for the team. And you say "And that was the result of it," wow, you're an idiot!!! A man is dead, there are people who have experienced a great loss, there is pain, sorrow, regrets, and hearts that will never mend. May David rest in peace and may Ms. Collins hopefully enjoy the rest of her life in prison. Maybe she can seak forgiveness while she roughts away.

    You can get on here and say that you have a higher authority to call on.You mean to tell me that you would not pertect your self or your children.I tell you what someone put me or my kids is a spot that i felt that i was in danger,I would do what ever!!!!!I am not dogging you and your family.I am sure that you all are in great pain.Have you ever been abuse by a man?If not don't say anything about her not leaving.Because any women that has been abused can tell you that it is not easy..And to the comment that she chose to take his life.I believe in my heart she did not choose to take his life.she was defending her self,and that was the result of it.

    no one has sent her to hell, i don't have that power, I am not god! What i do know is that no matter what went on in their relationship, she surely chose to stay, right? A cut, lol! Is she still walking around and breathing? I do not feel sorry for her, everyone on this earth chooses how they want to live their life! Not only would I not take someones life in my own hands, but I surely would not do it to someone that I say I loved! your'e an idiot, someone location, somewhere! I know if I felt in danger there is a higher authority I can call on. All I know is that a lot of hearts are broken and my best friends heart is filled with sadness, something that i cannot take away from her. When you see Ms. Collins, make sure you put your arms around her, when you do it I want you to remember this, David's family, friends, children, and all the people that love him will never be able to do that ever again! Wounds heal, hearts stay empty for ever when you have lost a loved one.

    We are not trying to make him a saint...no one is a saint. As far as his family would be the first to say anything bad about him, you obviously dont know all of us. I have never said one bad word about him..EVER. I loved him unconditionally, regardless. I have no dount that sharon loved david. And he loved her. That is not in question. I am not judging nor sending anyone to hell. The facts are she chose to take the life of someone else--someone she loved. She took the law and judging into her own hands at that point. Using lethal force to take the last breath of someone--intentionally or untintentionally, i dont care which one. All I know right now is my Bub is not breathing, he will never again take my kids fishing, see them play a game nor see them graduate. That is all I know right now. I see his picture, I hear his favorite songs, I read his letter and all I have is memories and thoughts of what could have been.
