1 Flavia  Sat, Dec 1, 2012 1:33:26pm

Now I am confused. If he had threatened to kill her before, why would anyone invite them BOTH to Thanksgiving dinner....? (No, I am not calling her a liar - I am saying that someone is stupid!!)

It happened in Alabama, families beating the crap out of each other at holiday gatherings is normal there. :p

And yes, he did beat her up pretty badly on a previous occasion but they both ended up at Thanksgiving dinner anyway. It takes a difficult choice to keep them apart when one person is your girlfriend and the other is your brother, one that wasn't made here. I guess they didn't think he would do it again and that things had been "patched up" somehow. :(

It's possible the Hawkins family wanted Travis Hawkins to either run Ms. Owens off for good or kill her. Honestly, this story reminds me somewhat of an 'honor killing', though with the relevant difference that the Hawkins family didn't try to kill their daughter, targeting instead the "evil lesbian leading our angel astray". But its the same intolerance and desire to control others at the core of this attack and 'honor killings'.

You see, when I was a kid I used to save up for a month, so I could get an R&B album and, the same day, the completed works of Anton Webern. Maybe that means something. Maybe that tells you something about my music. -- Excerpt from the book "Rock and Other Four Letter Words", copyright 1968.
