  2. The husband was the primary suspect in the case he was investigated thoroughly at every possible angle more then a cop could cover up there was no possible way he committed the crime and to think he framed Rodney who wasn't even a suspect until months later because he tried to rape another women in the same area is laughable the celebrities and other major news outlets that are trying to defend him conveniently ignore the other DNA evidence found of Rodney that 100% put him there at the time of the murder not a day or two prior as he claimed and there were never any phone records ever proving Stacey and Rodney ever communicated or any credible proof found that they had any type of relationship prior to the murder.

  3. She wasnt just 'active' in her church, she was active and deceptive with men 😒

  4. Oh no let him go he only rapped and killed a girl better let him go Kim Kardashian just needs to shut the f up

  5. Okay bottom line is poor Stacey did not know how to pick her men…. Can we all agree both of them are people who did terrible things? I don't believe in the death penalty- it's wrong. But seems like Jimmy did this crime. And they really both belong in jail. Jimmy needs to go back to prison… He doesn't deserve to be free.

  6. 0:52 I love how he blames the community for being racist.
    Was it racist to choose white victims?

  7. I was actually more on Rodney Reeds side before I watched the 20/20 special. Now I believe be absolutely did it, and should be locked up for the safety of the community. All of the other websites that I had briefly searched on this topic failed to mention his previous sexual assaults. He is exactly where he belongs.

  8. Did they recommend an Lie Detector Test?? For both the side guy and the Fiancé??

  9. You roll around with dogs you get fleas 95% of the time

  10. Tammy is full of it. Stacy neither invited her to her wedding or the two showers she had. She may have known her in HS but there was no friendship or personal knowledge.

  11. Funny that he seen the news about that girl but knew her name immediately…sounds like he was paying attention to that story. They have his dna, that’s a wrap, what are they arguing, that the cops planted it because of her wife’s husband was going to be a cop. Whatever….it happens I guess, but that would’ve happened from day 1. I say he is guilty. But hey I haven’t seen all of this case yet. We will see but that’s my thoughts so far.

  12. Its not a person's color that defiles them. It is their heart.

  13. Carry out the sentence!

    I mean "come on" already.
    I'm sick of hearing these stories. How many more innocent civilians have to be executed before the FBI and ATF sweep in and employ the same tactics used against the Branch Dividian folks, or those at Ruby Ridge… hell even those used at the Bundy Ranch would be fine.

  15. Why did they have his dna in the system? Was it from the 12 year old he raped or one of the other victims of his? He dad multiple.

  16. Robert Kardashian got OJ off and his daughters have been doin the same ever since.

  17. yet another murder of "The prettiest one" and "The one who lit up the room."

  18. Hate to break it to you guys, but Mr. Reed killed her. This isn't that complicated. First off, his DNA is in her, on her underwear, and on her breasts. Yet Reed says he had consensual sex with her days prior. Does she not shower or change her underwear? So clearly his story doesn't line up, and he had sex with her shortly before she died. And whoever killed her seems to have raped her given the state of her pants and belt. The pathologist never states his timing of the death or semen placement were incorrect, just that they weren't as 100% down-to-the-minute exact as portrayed in court. Secondly, there's no evidence suggesting there was a consensual relationship (no phone records, no witnesses), except after to the Innocence Project scrounges up two witnesses out of the woodwork 20-some years later. Also, why did he perjure himself initially by saying he didn't know her? Never mind the fact that his semen was found in numerous other women who report being raped, and then he charmed his way into another woman's car before bashing her head on the steering wheel. Where's the doubt?

  19. If Hollywood says he is innocent, I guess he must be. They are good folks in Hollywood that don't commit no crimes.

  20. If you think he's innocent, then you're a moron.

  21. If you can find the video from AIU, thats the one to watch to get all of the facts of the case. Same with AJW. here is his latest one on the case

  22. Young girl active in her Church… but was sleeping with a black guy while having a fiancé. Lol

  23. Quit with the race baiting. He is very guilty. Shame on you for putting the family through this and besmirching the name of the deceased while calling everyone a racist. If things were normal in the world, this would be pulled down for hate speech.

  24. Because he murdered her

  25. I want to share with you something that I sent to some people here in America:
    Our Creator, God, Said that all pornography is illegal. Do not watch pornography. Ask your congresspeople to move to make it illegal according to US law.

    This report was of interest to me, Jocelyn Poesnecker. I live near Philadelphia, USA. I love God and know that Only God Grants rain. For many, many years now I prayed to Dear God for rain, for our drinking, bathing and for the trees and other plants. Always Dear God Granted our area rain but not floods. I thank Dear God for that. Do not pray to Jesus or his mother. They both prayed to God.

    Do not say that you Grow anything. Only Dear God Makes things Grow!!!

    I want to share some concerns of mine: I went out some months ago to Bryn Mawr, PA, and was shocked that the thrift store was closed due to what some people told them to do. The grocery store called "Giant" was open, and I heard that the Walmart and Target stores were open. No one came to my door and asked my opinion about this before they demanded only some stores to close, and yet let others be open. No one called me, nor did I get a notice in the mail from any local government official!!!!

    Concerning Gov. Cuomo and the liqueur stores, it is known that our Only Creator, God, Forbade the drinking of alcohol. Jesus, a human who told God's Message, did not drink alcohol. The authors of texts where they wrote that he did, lied about Jesus and alcohol drinking.

    The Quaker leaders staunchly hold a rule to not drink alcohol. Check what doctors submitted to the people of Lancet magazine concerning the dangers of drinking even a small amount of alcohol, about two years ago.

    I am very religious, but being religious DOES NOT include believing that Dear God has a son, or a mother. In some very old reports people who learned directly from Jesus wrote that Jesus was a human, and that God does not have a son. Mary, the mother of Jesus, was known to be a human who never Created, just like the rest of us humans, in that regard.

    Perhaps one manuscript with a true report of what Jesus said about Dear God is in Turkey now. There was a news story about one or two years ago about this very old book.

    It is known that the man who was called King James was a big liar, and sinner, and lied about what Jesus and some followers of Jesus really said.

    It is not hard to be truly religious According to God. One must go away from the TV watching, and seek God's Guidance, listen and believe and act.

    Please read my post in response to Pres. Macron. I ask Dear God humbly to Bless you and your family.:

    I praise and thank Dear God I am a real Muslim adult woman. I am sure of this. When I thought of Mr. Macron right now, Dear God Helped me think of his recent public statement saying that he wants to preserve the right (according to him and it is not a right of ours According to God) to blaspheme. After he made that obviously evil declaration then the cartoons came out again, and the teacher was murdered (which were both evil acts).

    Look to who started a new chapter in an evil effort to slander DEAR GOD!!!!!!!!!

    Mr. Macron does not say that people have the right to hurt him and his wife, (not that I heard). This is excellent. I hope we all agree that Dear God did not Say that people have the right to hurt others. God did not Say that we have that as a right, and Dear God Said that different peoples are to get to know each other, and live harmoniously on this earth, with the complimentary talents that God Gave them.

    It must be made clear that two phrases have been said, and some said that is what they want, BUT THEY REALLY DO NOT!!!! What are they? They are the phrases ( and please do not say them out loud): so-called "freedom of speech" and "freedom of thought".

    Why do I say that all humans really do not want these at this moment?

    Concerning the speech issue, I do not want others to say hurtful words to me or to another about me. Here in Pennsylvania, people have been arrested, and put in mental hospitals for up to 20 days or more, because a second person went to a third person, and said that they want to write that a person, who is not present, is harmful to themselves and/or others. Some one decided to say some words "freely", and truly innocent people have been arrested here.

    Concerning the issue of thought: if you think, and do not talk about it, Only God Knows all about it, and you might remember some percentage. Dear God Might Let some person know something that another thought but did not say. Do not worry; Dear God Will never betray anyone.

    But who are the mentally ill by their own admission (and it is always temporary!!!!)? They are people who used to feel that they thought fine, but then they experienced a lessening of their memory, inability to compose sentences quickly, inability to plan as they used to, as some examples.

    Some people said that they heard voices out loud, but did not see anyone, and the words were: that they were evil or to do something evil. Genies, who are not seen by humans, do exist on earth.

    Others had a difficult time discerning if bad thoughts were theirs, or they thought of something bad they read about, or saw on TV, and they themselves do not like it.

    Mentally ill people do not want bad thoughts, and want to be calm, and want to be considered normal and non-dangerous. They want "thought control", not so-called freedom of thought.

    People, humans and genies, said "I want to be calm and peaceful, with memory, intelligence and mental sharpness. But they WILL NOT HAVE THIS STATE if they are personally set on being evil.

    If a person, be he human or genie, is set on being evil, then he or she is very dangerous!

    Some Good News From Dear God Is: no person is blocked By God from repenting to God, and changing their evil ways. If he or she makes the true effort to do that, then he or she is obviously no longer set on being evil.

    I typed a lot in terms of content. I welcome replies from people who work to have a good heart According to Dear God. I ask Dear God humbly to Bless you and your family. My YouTube channel is: lateefah s.🌸🍇🌷🍎🥀🎁🌈🌻🍊🦋💐🌹🍄🥜🍋🐚🍁🍓🏕💎🍐😄❤️🕌🕌🕌

  26. Something else for you to consider. If you die today will you go to heaven? Have you ever lied, stolen, used God's name as a curse word (O-M-G)? According to God's law, you're guilty, your headed for hell, ignorance will not be an excuse… But wait, God loves you, he made a way out for you, God's son Jesus died paying for your sin.

    God so loved the world that he gave his only son that whoever believes in him will not die but have everlasting life. John 3:16
    God is warning the world. End Time prophesies are jumping off the pages of the Bible, plagues, violence, scoffers, government control, earthquakes, fires, floods, people will be lovers of themselves, money, lovers of pleasure rather than God, evil will be called good and good called evil, sexual immorality rampant adultery, fornication, abuse… the ultimate in child abuse mommies killing their babies in child sacrifice (abortion), World leaders are prepping for a One-World order, government, religion (please don’t take a number on your forehead or right hand, read Revelation a number means no heaven, and there's only one alternative) The government is also prepping to have you believe that UFO's are real… Soon the antichrist will come and fix everything, everyone will love him, he will deceive many… then the tribulation will start, life on earth will be horrific. Today if you hear God whispering to your heart please respond before it's too late. Say a humble prayer, pour your heart out to God, receive Jesus as your savior, believe God raised Jesus from the dead, and repent of your sins.

  27. Hasn't Jimmy been convicted of rape in another case now?

  28. Peddling bullshit like this should be punishable by law. No one involved in making this actually believes the scumbag is innocent, they're just profiteering off a woman's death and unfounded accusations of racism.
