In memory of Kasee Dotson

My 23-year-old daughter was shot in the neck by her boyfriend in 2003. She lived nine and a half years as a quadriplegic, yet I cannot say she lived. The shooter spent eight years in prison. She suffered for nine and a half. She died in 2013 as a result of the gunshot. He got released because he got “good time” in prison. We didn’t get “good time.” He is remarried now with a daughter, yet he stole mine away from me. There is no justice.?
