    If she’s on good behavior she only serves 10 years for shooting this poor man to death?!! How much trouble could she get in . . . She’s over 70! She should never see the light of day again! I’ve never heard of suspending 30 years!

      So, her so called “white privilege” is to potentially get out when she almost 80 years old? That some “privilege”!
      If there REALLY was “white privilege” she wouldn’t have been jailed at all.
      She also had the “white privilege” of having $20,000 stolen from her.
