So she's single?
 
2014-05-02 07:46:17 PM  
The cousin applied pressure to the wound and helped him outside to the sidewalk where Martin collapsed

Wouldn't want to get blood on the carpet now, would we?


Miata Phelan

If you're going to name your child after a car at least have a little ambition.

Now I ain't sayin' she's a gold-digger...
 
2014-05-02 07:56:05 PM  
Asst. Public Defender Lisa Brean said Phelan is a life-long resident of Chicago, who is eight classes away from receiving a bachelor's degree in public relations from Columbia College in Chicago.

Isn't that about two semester's worth of classes if you're taking the minimum full time load?  Why don't they just say she's a year from getting her degree?

On the way home, Phelan accused Martin of being selfish because he bought things for his cousin and son but not for her

Buying things for other people: Truly the mark of a selfish man.

He refused to buy a gift for the woman carrying his child on her birthday.

Maybe he was waiting on a paycheck!

At least he doesn't have to marry her
 
2014-05-02 10:25:28 PM

That, or maybe he already had bought her a gift and was going to surprise her with it.

Oh, that would be even better.  She finds a ring when cleaning out his dresser while getting ready for the funeral.  It could be a Lifetime movie.

do u know why men die before their wives?

because they want to

"Runk said Phelan struck Martin while he was driving, almost causing an accident, and after Phelan drove to Martin's mother's home to drop off shoes for Martin's brother, she kicked and scratched Martin before driving away in his car..."


Never stick your dick in crazy Satan's Spawn.

The day before her birthday. Slight difference.
 
2014-05-02 10:52:24 PM  
Maybe because he bought her a really nice set of knives last time he went to the mall.

2014-05-02 11:04:54 PM  
Well, his death bought her meals, a roof over her head, plenty of sleep (granted it's mandatory) some regularly scheduled exercise, and clothing.  She's just a little ungrateful
 
2014-05-02 11:08:00 PM  
It's nice to see her friends and family supporting her by helping establish a battered woman's defense.
 
2014-05-02 11:08:00 PM  
Do not mourn his death. Be glad for him that his end came so swiftly, instead of dragging out year after year, anniversary, birthday, Christmas, Valentines, anniversary, birthday, Christmas, Valentines, and on and on, seemingly without end.

This would involve getting to know your potential partner in some meaningful way before the dick-stickening, and that's just too difficult for the entitled American male to deal with.

That's not limited to pregnant women.

And on the very day he found this plain gold ring, too, which somebody had lost in a river.  A shame he simply didn't giver that to her.

By the time this gold diggin' ho gets out if prison she'll have switched to Subaru.

Generally, wanting to save your life would come before wanting to keep it a surprise. You'd think somewhere during the fight in the car he'd go "For fark's sake woman, I already got you something, shut up", or even would've mentioned it as he's grasping his leg to keep from bleeding.

Also, if he actually was regularly abusive, he deserved it. Maybe not to die, but definitely to be stabbed. I don't think she intended to kill him, even if she did say "I hope you die". Even saying "hope" implies she didn't think it really would.
Just from what this article tells me, I hope she doesn't get in too much trouble. I'd hate to see a pregnant woman put in jail. The last few months are stressful, and after the birth is an important time for bonding and stimulation of the child.

She's got that look that says "Mmhmm, yeah I did it. Muthaf*cka got his. He didn't get me sh*t."

Perhaps P.R. was a poor career choice. And why did article outline her questionable fashion choices so deeply?

I don't think she was doing the public relations thing right at all. Either that or she is missing 8 very key classes.

I can understand you not agreeing with me, but I don't follow what you mean exactly.

For Chicago, it's just about right.

She should have waited. He was probably taking her to Denny's the next day and buy the most expensive thing on the menu.

That's pretty unfair to say. I'm an entitled American male and always like to get to know somebody prior to dick-stickening. I don't just go around dick-stickening anybody. I reserve my dick-stickening for women with whom I've made a special bond.

AND sometimes it's hard to see the crazy until after the dick-stickening has already commenced.

I was married to crazy for six years, but didn't really see the signs for the first year or so. Hell, she even admitted she was crazy in the later years of the relationship.

Same here. Then when she had the divorce papers served to me at work, followed by coming up to a restraining order, I really knew she was batshiat crazy.
