I don't think we should be putting someone to death who is so far removed from reality. So sad.
RIP Aileen. I hope you are finally at peace and resting in the comfort and safety of those pearly gates. You went through so much in this lifetime - more than any one person should have to go through. I'm so sorry.
i like aileen !! her story is a tragedy and i feel a close connection with her story . all tho its not the same story. i have had great tragedys in my life that i can understand why she snapped and how it can get that bad !! on top of being mentally ill she was alone.. were not meant to be alone ! i hope she's resting with our god . thanks for showing us a look in to her life . i didnt know she wasn't a part of the movie . i very much enjoyed it tho
I think she was ready to die, long before she ever had killed anyone. i think she died long before she evergot that needle. i believe the 4 yearold girl, the untouched, unbroken version of Aileen will be waiting for every soul as inflicted as she was. life was so unkind and you still smiled as long as you could. i also believe nick did a great job of tying up loose ends. and im only sorry aileen didnt get the notion to take her show on a little road trip home and take vengence for all those who broke her in so many ways.... i believe she believed those men would hurt her or others like shed been hurt. like that needed to be done. rip aileem.
