James Edward: "It was just a beautiful feeling to hear that be announced and just the joy, the relief and just the feeling that came across everyone that's here today that made it worth coming out for."
There are two documentaries about Britney's father and his actions. People think he abused his power. Britney's lawyer talks about this.
Mathew S. Rosengart: "Putting a listening device under Britney Spears' bed in her bedroom, something that's very, very troubling. That's something that it is for law enforcement and not myself to make the ultimate conclusion on."

Melanie Mandarano: "It's not over even, even when she's free it's not over because B-Army is going to make sure that the 1.5 million people that are in conservatorships are also free. And we're going to amplify the voices of all of the other people who have been exploited and abused in this system."
