  1. jennifer thompson should be put in a maximum jail on 24 hour lock down so she can feel the pain she has put ronald cotton.sorry won’t cut it,that might.its a crime to falsely accused someone.until we realized that,there will be many more wrongfully accused.i think people who jump to conclusion and wrongfully accused someone,should be put on trial just like the person they put there.they might think real hard next time before they point the finger.i hate jennifer so much,i can’t even stand to look at her face.and she says she is also a victim,please !@#%$#$%cth.
