    it’s nice to see some justice here.
    this is such a disgusting and cold-blooded case. i can’t imagine how hard it must be for her partner sharon, and my heart goes out to her. i’m glad she had the courage to fight this and see it through.

    justice at last. i feel some sense in relief in that this feels so much like a hate crime. i’m trying to remember since it’s been so long, but has this ever been portrayed in the press or in court as a hate crime? does anyone know or remember more details?

    I followed the case fairly closely as a dog lover who is outspoken about keeping them leashed and under control. There is no evidence she set the dogs on the woman and influenced them to attack, but she was not merely careless. It was not an accident that these dogs attacked. They had been reported as vicious, had several incidents and were physically stronger than Knoller. Animals like these should never have been allowed out of the house unmuzzled. Knollers callous disregard for public safety and response to the attack were criminal. Investigation about the dogs actual owners and her reasons for having them in her home only confirm the many deeper levels of her poor and dangerous judgement. She is in need of such serious rehabilitation that the criminal justice system is our only hope.

    All I have to say about this is, “Good!”. That POS woman, and her POS husband should never see the light of day again. Pity that he was paroled. They are nothing better than savages.

    I’ve often wondered if the prison connection (dogs owned by inmates) offered any mitigation or excuse to the defendants here. I guess not or we would have heard about it by now. This is second-degree murder. Her punishment is just, considering someone is dead because of her actions.

    This reminds me of Sarah Palin’s “Pitt Bull” comment. I feel uneasy when people joke about dangerous animals.
