I'm sure some of you were probably curious as what will happen to Shawn Ford and Jamall Vaughn, the two who murdered Jeffery and Margaret Schobert.
Now that Shawn is 18 and one more hearing remains of the upcoming trial, it's possible for him to be tried on the death penalty. I can't bring myself to feel any sympathy towards him, and honestly, I really hope he is put on Death Row. He should not be amongst society. As for Jamall, he will be tried as an adult and will possibly be tried on life in prison. Again, I hope so.
This is all I know at the moment, but as the court case progresses I promise to keep you all informed.
Chelsea has been released from the hospital and is living with relatives, but is in extreme therapy, probably for the rest of her life.
Her name is Chelsea Schobert.
For her sake, I hope she does die. So she can be with her family.
Chelsea, 18, is in the hospital for stab wounds and a fractured skull because of her boyfriend, Shawn Ford, attacked her. She should make it. She should be fine.
For her sake, I hope not.
Because one week later, Shawn, 17, and his 14-year-old friend murdered her parents in their home.
They were bludgeoned to death with a sledgehammer. Her father was murdered first, then they waited for her mother to return home from the hospital, where she had spent the night with Chelsea. The youngest minor will hopefully get 20-30 years in juvi and later jail for aggravated murderer. Shawn is eligible for life in prison, but not the death penalty.
My parents kept this all a secret from me until now because the priest at church mentioned her.
She was also in my sister's class many years ago.
She was one of my few friends. During recess we'd sit and play with our Pokèmon cards. People thought we were both weird for liking that stuff. It breaks my heart that it seems the nation doesn't care about the hell she's going through. She's only state news. You can't even find her report on YouTube. Only on Google. And it's all on the state and city websites only.
Is it because neither she or her parents were shot? Because she and her parents can't contribute to the push for gun control? Why is it that other 18 year olds count when they're shot, but not stabbed? Why is a death shooting in the home considered gross and disturbing when they're normally quick and painless? Why is no one caring about the poor couple who were VIOLENTLY BEATEN TO DEATH?!?!?!
I want an answer. I want people to know who they are and who they were. I want to know why no one is devoting donations or concerts to that family or to push for more violence education.
I WANT TO KNOW WHY MURDERS ONLY MATTER NOW IF A GUN IS INVOLVED. I WANT TO KNOW WHY NO CARES ABOUT THE GIRL WHO HAD EVERYTHING STOLEN FROM HER.
Is that so wrong?
