Living in an age where social media plays a prominent role in our day to day life, a strong support group seems like a given. According to bigthink.com the average Facebook user has upwards of 200 friends. Yet with an abundance of friends and acquaintances at your fingertips, you may find yourself standing all alone with not a friend in sight.
This is what has happened to Donna Hockman.
Donna’s story is certainly not your typical story. Her’s is a story of betrayal, survival, and corruption.
While it’s a fascinating story to share, it is not mine to tell. Below, I am providing a link to Donna’s website. I implore you to please find some free time, grab a cup of tea or coffee and look at the massive amount of detail she has put into it. Look at all the compelling evidence she provides.
Donna Hockman shot her ex, Dustin Stanley, a vicious man who brutally abused Donna and threatened to end, not only her life but her son’s life as well.
Killing another human being is not a justifiable action, in general. Donna’ s situation, however, is not your general case. Dustin Stanley was a vicious criminal. He was a paid informant for the Police. In turn, they needed him on the streets. After several 911 calls and reports of domestic violence, Donna found herself no closer to escaping the powerful grip Stanley held over her and her two children.
What Donna chose to do on that fateful day in July 2008, was the act of a desperate and exhausted woman. When Donna pulled that trigger, she was standing up for the injustice she was forced to live in. Donna made a choice not to be a victim any longer. She made a choice to protect her children at all costs.
You would expect a level of understanding came to play at her trial. It likely would have, had vital evidence not been omitted by an unjust judge.
Donna did not have a fair trial and did not receive her due process. Without substantial evidence, the jury had no reason to spare Donna from a lifetime in prison. Donna was convicted of murder in the first degree. Her sentence: Life.
Donna has been sitting in prison for nine years, writing letters to lawmakers and begging for someone to care. Where are her friends now? Where is her support team?
Imagine you were in Donna’s shoes right now. Do you think your friends would still have your back or shed a few tears and move on with life?
Who do you have in your corner that would fight for you?
As you go to sleep tonight in the comfort of your own bed, warmed with hugs from your children, think about Donna Hockman. The world is moving on without her as she sits in her cell, paying the ultimate price; her freedom.
