Failed Responsibility And The Burden Of Guilt: Deena Barnes’ Conscience Must Stand Trial In Kid Sister’s Murder

Deena Barnes (pictured center) has garnered some compassion in the killing of her late sister after her ex-boyfriend was indicted for the murder of Phylicia Barnes. Some say her conscience is already serving a life sentence related to her baby sister's death.

 

Long before a judge and jury decides the innocence or guilt of Michael Johnson for the murder of the late Phylicia Barnes, It should be understood that another adjudication has already played out in the eyes of public opinion. Guilty as charged has been the constant public  perspective related to the manner in which Deena Barnes cared for her baby sister under her watch. Although there are many in social media who have recently expressed compassion for Deena Barnes in the wake of her boyfriend’s indictment for the murder of Phylicia, there remains a large contingency of followers who aren’t as eager to adopt such newly discovered understanding, and people still hold Deena directly accountable for what happened to this promising child. Some say they now empathize with Deena because obviously she wasn’t involved in the actual killing, They express concern that she has also been victimized by a demon who betrayed her trust and stole one of the most precious gifts god had bestowed upon her, which was the blessing of a beautiful kid sister who was snatched from this world senselessly, and without provocation. We are now completely aware that Janice Sallis was lied to from the onset when the teens’ mom first began contemplating allowing Plhylicia to travel to Baltimore and establish a bond with her older half-siblings. Janice has repeatedly claimed that Deena assured her that Phylicia would be safe in her care, that only Phylicia and her would be staying at the apartment during her stay in Baltimore, and conveyed to Janice that she understood the strict parental guidelines established for Phylicia’s supervision. Despite Janice’s request, Deena exposed Phylicia to a culture that ultimately culminated into the child’s death. Allowing a naive book smart college bound kid to indulge in drugs and alcohol is gut wrenching, and unconscionable to say the very least. Deena’s apparent apathy when challenged by Janice about Phylicia’s pot smoking allegations depicted just how out of touch she was related to basic parenting. Realistically speaking, we must consider the reality about substance abuse in American culture that plague our youth, but such behavior having been condoned by a supposed responsible adult is even a rare occurrence in modern time. The high volume of male traffic in and out of her apartment demonstrates just how loosely Deena guarded the innocence of her baby sister. I personally have always felt that if Deena and Michael were actually in the midst of a breakup, perhaps having Phylicia over as a guest wasn’t exactly such a great idea in the first place. The emotions typically associated with social disharmony in relationships  has historically hinged on bitterness, distrust, and animosity. Assuming Deena really wanted to be a positive role model for young Phylicia, we must also believe that Deena wanted to display herself in the best possible light for her up and coming minor sibling, and  the decision to have Phylicia over her place during such an intimate and personal upheaval was clearly poor judgment on her part. We should also consider that Deena’s personal strife should not have been allowed to infringe upon Phylicia’s desire to enjoy the company of her elder sister during such spirited holiday season, which is why I also feel Michael’s departure from Deena’s place, along with his family and friends, should have been expedited under Deena’s direct supervision, and physical presence. Phylicia should not have been permitted to be at the apartment alone with anyone, if for no other reason that she was a female child the fact that Michael still had a key with unabated access to the apartment, and that Phylicia really didn’t know any of them. Michael’s family and friends were Deena’s associates. If we allow the benefit of the doubt and afford Deena’s actions having been predicated on ignorance regarding parenting skills, there was still so much more that Deena personally displayed negligence in properly caring for a teenage female child, and the level of trust given to a man she had fallen out with fails even the most far-fetched rationalization that anyone could possibly offer. I am reminded of a comment someone made in which stated, “I guess she didn’t actually believe he would harm her sister”. However, Deena also obviously was completely ignorant to the fact that Michael apparently had a physical attraction to young Phylicia. His attraction  was more than likely born when the child was permitted to run around nude with Michael and others at Deena’s apartment. Though it is unclear whether Deena was actually there during such activities, it leaves room for a lot of speculation if Deena herself took the pictures when it occurred, and even if she wasn’t involved in the “streaking” Deena is ultimately responsible. Deena’s presence or not demonstrates poor supervision of Phylicia. The fact that Michael cheated on Deena with another mutual friend, in which he even fathered a child by Tabitha Fickling showed Michael couldn’t be trusted around other females. It’s completely disturbing that Deena failed to see the writing on the wall when she left young Phylicia alone in that apartment knowing that Michael could simply come over at any time. Hell the sole reason they were breaking up was because of his unfaithfulness to her, but she chose to allow Michael prime opportunity to be alone with the child. To really drive the point home even further, it’s disturbing that Michael kept the nude images of him and Phylicia on his cellphone while the cops were actively investigating the case. Michael’s failure to discard such material evidence that could create a perceived culpability of his direct involvement in what ever happened to Phylicia, raises concern why Deena was unable to pick up on his interest in her little sister. I am aware that many have expressed that i have unfairly picked on Deena Barnes regarding Phylicia’s death, but I am simply stating what many within the public also feel regarding this tragic murder case. There isn’t any discussion that could occur that would bring Phylicia Simone Barnes back, but it must be understood that the verdict has already been returned on Deena’s failed responsibility in properly caring for Phylicia, and her sentence is eternal as she must deal with her conscience the rest of her life.

    We had an excellent debate on Deena this morning in my barbershop and the older lady who cuts my hair brought up some GREAT points. She’s angry Deena failed when Janice trusted her with her precious gift!  The guys (ALL dads of girls) feel MJ should be floating in a river!!! ALL OF US FEEL B MORE MEDIA NEEDS TO FOCUS ON NC FAMILY WHO RAISED PHYLICIA!!! Not the “media” family who sent her to her grave!!! 

    See this is where Deena lost the sympathy of the majority of the public…nude photos, thugs sleeping on floors in nasty apt, Phylicia sleeping on a couch, drinking and drugs. See I have said from day one MJ knew Deena was a fool and that is why he played this to the end. How many people look at court shows? I bet Judge Mathis would even say “The way folks are fighting in my court, most women boot the bum, change locks and say GO WASH YOUR SH@ AT THAT B@ HOUSE YOU CHEATED ON ME WITH!!! How many act as nice as Deena to a BUM?????” Deena was nice because MJ had stuff on her and she needed this to end AS FRIENDS!! Not many mothers I know when they leave a bum leave the children behind…ALL WALK! So Mr. Adams is correct why did Deena leave the naive Phylicia in such a volatile. situation (the I didn’t know he was a murderer doesn’t wash with me either) Now think about something else. MJ knew he murdered Phylicia. How many murderers try and contact their ex on FB with such a crime on their hands? Most disappear, run thinking “Deena wants nothing to do with me after her sister went missing. She loved her so much!” MJ knew Deena was reckless about Phylicia’s care. Remember Deena dear anything negative you said about Phylicia, Janice etc. to MJ is etched in his brain and will now come back to haunt you in a courtroom!!! Janice is VERY smart, she will know when MJ is telling the truth!!!! That’s why they have the team of lawyers ready to rip Deena apart in front of a jury which might help MJ. So Barnes family this might backfire in your face rallying around Deena like she was the greatest role model in history. 

    Oh the idiots who keep saying “Deena has suffered enough.” WHAT ABOUT JANICE SALLIS-MUSTAFA’S HUSBAND AND CHILDREN? Does Deena have to walk into Phylicia’s empty bedroom daily? Does Deena have to run into Phylicia’s friends, teachers and classmates who are so sad they don’t know what to say to the Mustafa family in the grocery store or mall? So tell me Deena protectors how is Deena suffering as much as the mother who labored for hours to bring this precious angel into the world??? Deena will NEVER suffer enough for me!  I think the “media” family has done enough damage to the Mustafa family!!!I think the Mustafa family is about to be DESTROYED learning what went on in that apartment because MJ isn’t serving LIFE (I prefer death) ALONE!!!!! RIP Angel! I have a feeling Union Academy and your NC friends and family will honor your memory through other intelligent young ladies!

      I TRULY AGREE FOR ONE RUSSEL HER DAD WAS NEVER A DAD IN HER LIFE BECAUSE WHEN JANICE WAS MARRIED TO HIM SHE GOT PREGNANT WITH PHYLICIA AND HE WANTED JANICE TO GET AN ABORTION BECAUSE HE DID NOT WANT ANY MORE KIDS THAT WAS THE RESULT OF THEIR DIVORCE AND I COULD GO ON AND ON, HE ALSO TRIED TO BEAT THE BABY OUT OF JANICE STOMACH, WHAT KIND OF SHIT IS THAT, ANOTHER THING WHY HE DID NOT WANT PHYLICIA WHEN HE ALREADY HAD THREE OTHER CHILDREN DEENA, KELLY AND BRYAN AND THEN HAD MORE CHILDREN WITH OTHER WOMEN SO WHY HE DID NOT WANT PHYLICIA, HE IS JUST AS WORST AS MICHAEL JOHNSON IN MY EYE SIGHT, OF COURSE HE IS A DEAD BEAT DAD WHOM NEVER DID ANYTHING FOR HIS CHILDREN BUT LAID SEED’S THAT’S ALL, SO WHAT CAN HE TELL ANY ONE, NOTHING,HE ACT LIKE HE WAS SO CONCERN ABOUT PHYLICIA DEATH WHEN HE TRIED TO DO THE SAME TO HER BEFORE SHE ENTERED INTO THIS WORLD, HE ALSO IS GONNA ROT IN HELL 4 SHO….

    • Found Journey says:

      Hey JFPB I couldn’t said it better.  That Trampy, Trashy as deena is not getting off scotch free and her daddy dearest cannot protect her against the rage that carries HIGH volume.  Not only her conscious is going to  beat the HELL out of her her new environment is also going to whip the hell out of her yes to answer the question if deena STANK ASS was involved in the nude streaking she probably got the drugs that she gave to Phylicia “Simone” from work afterall she is a pharmacy tech and they havee access to all drugs.  rulless barnes knows exactly what type of WENCH that deena is because she’s just like his TRYFLYN ASS to me they all are useless and taking up air space they all need to be in HELL serving their real true GOD “SATAN”  After catching rulless barnes in numerous of lies trying to cover up for his ace coon boon cat deena.  Now he’s hollering they knew MJ had done it all a long because he didn’t help with the search.  “Hell, they didn’t even help search and rulless barnes is the direct HORSE that told him to stay away.  Now I see why deena looks like a cheap quality breed of horses.

  2. JFPB says:

    I meant to say I think MJ formed a crush (since he saw her nude and was a playa) on the young gorgeous athlete with a bright future. I think he made an advance at Phylicia and like the people in my barbershop said (since Phylicia didn’t think MJ was a murderer) made a Janice threat that sent MJ into a rage!! See MJ knew Deena was a fool BUT piss Janice off and have her in B more…NOT!! He’d rather TRY and pull off the perfect crime!!! So Deena the bottom line is if you thought like Janice Phylicia would still be alive so on this point maybe others, Mr. Adams, are correct it took GREAT mothering instincts to protect Phylicia!!! Russell too bad you failed so miserably Deena didn’t say “Let me call my dad on how to boot MJ!” I know a lot of brothas who would have been at that apt in a heartbeat to deal with MJ and send Phylicia back to NC SAFE!!!

    • Sandrabarnes1962 says:

       wow jfpb you ain’t never lied deena is part to blame and she is my cousin as well, but right is right and if she had not lied to janice phylicia would still be alive today, they all gonna face judgement day, let god will be done.

  3. Sandrabarnes1962 says:

    I TOLD MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS THAT MICHAEL JOHNSON WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR MY COUSIN PHYLICIA’S DEATH, I HOPE HE ROT IN HELL, AND YES DEENA IS PART TO BLAME, THE GOOD THING THAT CAME OUT OF ALL OF THIS IS THE BASTARD CANNOT KILL AGAIN.

    • Found Journey says:

      No deena ain’t part to blame.  deena is the DAMN BLAME cousin or not that SLUT PUPPY is all the responsible party as far I’m concerned.  She knew of her WICKED AND DEMONIC ASS behavior and the Barnes’ continue to proclaim to be CHRISTIANS, no the correct title would be DEMONICIANS.  If only people knew about rulless barnes FOUL WICKED SMELLING ASS the human population would stay away from the DEVIL he looks like a devil he acts like a devil, he smells like a devil and he wears the devil’s garment; therefore, he is the DEVIL ALL devils HIDE behind ALMIGHTY GOD.

  4. STRAWBERRYJAZZ says:

    Look at how deena is holding her so called beloved baby sister’s posters in her hands, as if the posters are just there without a meaning and the purpose is FAKE the sad part about her (deena) is that she  can’t even play it off by at least pretend to DAMN care.  The compassion for her little sister’s murder on her hands are stuck somewhere in Jupiter she is definitely stupider.
