      Yes I know about the volumes being low, however can not increase it as this was created on an old work computer which I no longer have access too and the file no longer exists. In looking back, I wish the overlooked errors were fixed at the time.. it is what it is. Headphones and raise the volume works for some.

      whatcha lookin at? Oh gosh I'm so sorry maybe if you get her alone you could show her this a guy that will hit a woman is going to only escalate and it's going to get worse and they are not going to stop it takes a minimum of 5 years of intensive counseling to start to change the behavior that they do I will seriously pray for your sister that she gets out of this relationship in that she'll let you help her

      Let the police know to they'll have it on record. She'll be mad at you but sometimes you gotta save people from themselves. Don't give up on her.

    That man had a child with another women and abused her. She had to get a protective order against him and ran to Florida for a time. Why do they let this sicko walk the streets?

    The 1st officer on the scene should of been brought up on charges along with the rest of the cops who watched with their thumbs up there pig asses...they should of shot that evil fucker...point blank...

    Everyone needs to realise that at the time of tracey thurman, there weren't the protective laws in place that needed to be there not just for domestic abuse but also child abuse. there are many towns in this country that are beyond corrupt to turn a blind eye.
    On the other hand, thousands of children in this country every year go missing at the hand of a parent. The laws for child abuse carry it too far. They have left the good parents with no way to discipline their children as needed.
    Unfortunately, people didn't get on their high horse about abuse until about 1990's. The catch is laws were put in place that were not well thought out.
    The point i'm making is don't waste too much time trying trying to help someone, if you care about them wage full out war to try and protect.

When I came too gasping for air he was gone . So that’s when I left the state were it happened and never looked back so I know what you went threw and my heart goes out to you Tracy .

    the police department was as useless as tits on bacon...they WATCHED when just about everything unfolded from beginning to end...the police officer that was 1st on scene should've been thrown in jail and brought up on charges along with the other responding officers who arrived on scene...this whole thing could've been prevented if the cops would've done their jobs like they should have when it 1ST STARTED..they did NOTHING until it was too late! IMHO i think the cops were as much to blame as Buck! CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE!

    I have that "Cry For Help The Tracy Thurman Story" & I was rather impressed on Nancy McKeon's acting skills. She's come a long way from the "Facts Of Life" role she portrayed back in the day. She NAILED IT in this movie & lucky me I have it & can watch it anytime I want, though its hard to watch due to that sorry sack of shit who abused her. Another very disturbing movie is "The Girl Next Door" which focus's on the killing of a teenage girl named Sylvia Likens. What's even MORE disturbing is the actual court transcripts that if you bother to read em (there on the internet) they REALLY tell just what that poor girl had to REALLY endure. There's some real sick people in the world.

    • Biff Roberts
      Biff Roberts Year ago +5

      Oh yea, I saw the Burning Bed. I believe it also starred Paul Le Mat from American Graffiti fame too, if I'm not mistaken. He & the late Farrah Fawcet did a great job in The Burning Bed for sure. But if you wanna talk about REALLY DISTURBING ya may wanna try watching (in case you haven't) a movie called "The Girl Next Door" because what's REALLY DISTURBING about it is, it REALLY HAPPENED!!! And the torture that sweet Sylvia Likens girl went through made me sick. Even MORE DISTURBING is if you ever happen to read the actual court transcripts of what REALLY HAPPENED in that house. You can find both on the internet. It happened in the 1960's in Indiana. The house it happened in has since been demolished. Simply type in the google or youtube search engine either "The Girl Next Door" or the name Sylvia Likens. But a WARNING though cos its VERY DISTURBING. Just thought I'd let ya know is all.

    Whoever thinks it was Tracey's fault is just sick, messed up & pathetic just like Buck!! Maybe if some of you go through what she went through, you might think differently. Makes me so mad when people blame the victim! None of this is Tracey's fault. She just simply fell for the wrong man and she tried to get away and the police never protected her.

    watched this movie in middle school and I actually fainted during the stabbing scene.. everyone wants to judge her or think they would do things differently, you just don't know. what's worse is a woman putting judgment on her. We women she never bring each other down. so sad.

    the police coyld have avoided the situation a long time ago. first is the fact that they had received various calls from tracy regarding her husbands threats against her and harrassing her. the police were in fact siding with buck. they knew what he wad saying and doing and yet they did nothing.that police officer who was suppossed to have gone to her residence to see what was happenning. first went to the bathroom .he was doing that deliberately.he was one of the police officers who was constantly talking to buck. also when the police officer arrived he did nothing .he didnt try to take the kid away from buck.he didnt call for back up he also let buck keep on beating up his wife.buck kicked her various times. the cop should have shot him. then the cop was holding back a man who was trying to pull buck away from tracy. the police as a whole were responsible for not doing their job.

    I do not agree with that Barbara Spiegel,.Reasons for staying,.you dumb ass,.Yep we have real great excuses for wanting to stay in a so called relationship,.How maddening, you have no clue to what ur saying,.I was one, I had no reasons for staying or wanting to stay with the ass who beat me, cut me, punched me,.Just made me do what he wanted,.I was told what , when to go to the store while he timed me, in the store, timed me in the shower,.Wasn't allowed to go anywhere unless he was there,.When room mate came home from work he made me clean up while I was dizzy to get blood off me,.He would come after me down the street if I ran out to try to get help from neighbours down street, no-one would help,.This was in the early 80's in Michigan,.Lansing,.This ass was a sober, non-druggie,.ass..Just a nuthead,.Sorry but this broad made me mad when she said that statement how we want to stay,.most of us don't have a choice,!! I attempted so many times but was found,.Its still in my head after 30yrs ago,..

      Tracy was very young when she met Charles Buck Thurman,she was still a teenager and she fell in love with him and she made a mistake yes but it is a youth mistake . She thought he would change with her love even if he had punched her and liked to drink alcohol.She couldn't know that he would beat her and harass her after leaving with their kid. She had the courage to leave but Buck was so wild and screwed that he caught her and kicked her and sent her to hospital..Everyone makes mistakes..we cannot blame her.

      "More men are raped than women" What you conveniently leave out MRA douche, is that males are (in the vast majority) more likely to be raped by other males; mostly in prison.
      If you're truly worried about male rape (which I doubt, you types just use it to derail) have you ever thought about opening up a shelter for males? You know taking to the streets, grassroots effort, like women had to? Of course not, you use male victims as leverage for your martyr complex.
      NO statistics show women abusing, raping and murdering males anywhere near the numbers males do. The only place that even spouts that is A VOICE FOR MEN - which is about as credible as stormfront.
      Way to waltz in and make everything about YOU, just like males like you always do.

    I hope Tracy doing ok,I dont feel sorry for women that are abused because they can leave fuck hoping the guy would change,or staying for the kids or he would find you or your scared,why do that to yourselves it makes no sense,I've never been abused in none of my relationships I came from strong women on both sides of my family,and we don't tolerate this bad evil behavior.all you got to do is leave but no they kept staying these women knew the abused got worse and worse,but he beating your ass,cheating,putting you down,using you,controlling you,breaking body parts,noses,lips,putting you in the hospital,and you steal want to stay it's crazy,once he shows his true colors it will continue,Tracy lucky she didn't die god bless her and women like her.

      If u have no idea about being in a abusive relationship then u can't judge it, for ur small mind no it's not always so easy to leave as u have said. If u have never been in it then u have no idea how hard it can be to leave, what I get from ur comment is that anyone woman who doesn't leave a partner is weak. I do feel sorry for woman but u have to remember it's not just woman who are abused it's happens to men as well. Then u have he nerve to say god bless Tracey and woman like her but u don't feel sorry for them.
