  •  It's not worth arguing with this guy (0+ / 0-)

    If you go into his profile and click through to his personal website, you'll see that he has a financial stake in the infallibility of the police and prosecutors. Between that and his insistence that someone like Troy Davis should be put to death, despite all the witnesses now admitting they lied when they testified against him and strong evidence indicating someone else actually committed the crime because of an arbitrary filing deadline, I'm convinced he has no real respect for human life.

    •  I figured that out already. (1+ / 0-)

      Just wanted to make the point that you can't resurrect a ded man.

      The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.

        That also doesn't matter to this guy. What can you do?

        Shrug.

          on CNN. I'd yell at my governor, but, bluntly, Perdue could care less. This is the state after all where the DA wants to retry or appeal Genarlow WIlson's conviction.  ANd where the cops shot a 93 year old woman executing a no-=knock warrant based only on the coerced testimony of a snitch--and apparently never bothered to check who lived int he house (she got one of them, at least). You break down my house door at 2 a.m. without IDing yourself, and if I were alone int the house, I'd shoot your ass too (if I owned a gun, which I don't).

      I have written several books castigating numerous police forces, DAs, judges, witnesses, etc. These groups of people are not happy when I contact them because they know I will spread the word about their corruption, lies, and deceit.

      Just because someone writes true crime does not mean they are pro-prosecution. Far from it.

      I'm convinced he has no real respect for human life.

      I guess I should request my money back that I have donated from the sales of each one of my books. So that would be the Rape, Abuse, Incest National Network (RAINN), Sarah/Amy/Jennifer/Eliza for Workplace safety (SAJE), Parents of Murdered Children - Houston Chapter, Parents of Murdered Children - The Heights Chapter, The Doris Tate Foundation for Murder Victims' Families, and Crime Stoppers. Also, the donations that are made to a different charity each month from my blog.

      They don't need the money, do they?
