Stumpy, I definitely stand corrected. Have an uncle who was a cop and quit cause he said no matter what they did, it was next to impossible to ever get a conviction.
But just the same, it still leaves a lot of innocent people in peril, like those girls in the backyard. The story said the cops could do nothing cause they didn't have a search warrant. That has to be obtained from the court. But 18 years of various people's suspicions & nothing done.... A story like that must be real encouraging for would-be rapists.

Was that the guy accused of being prejudice against blacks (forgot his name) then moved out of state & wrote a book? He screwed things up when he testified.

I know what you mean momoese; But:
I feel this detective was wrong, he should have stepped forward. Since when does injustice trump self satisfaction. Who aided the criminal in this case? Don't take me wrong, I have a great respect for all police officers, but I also know everybody walks to their own beat.

The innocent are forced to suffer and be punished for the criminal's actions, whether or not the criminal is found guilty and that seems to relate only to getting caught in the act. Many people have been set up to take the fall for the actions of the criminal or crime boss. I know honest accountants who have worked for embezzling CEO's and who do you think is in prison now--not the CEO. I know honest people who have been set up by a group of criminals. But in court, it's all their words against the one. In a case of conspiracy or lack of evidence, the court system should allow truth syrum or hypnosis so the one can prove their innocents. I could go on forever, but I won't.

I just have one question for all to think about;

How can one person who has been set up prove his/hers innocents in court today if the criminals don't get caught in the act when commiting the crime and it's your word against the criminals?

Talk about injustice!!!!.......Yeah!!!!!.......Right!!!!!

Yep! I'm not gonna say his name cause I still want nothing to do with it but you know exactly who I'm talking about.

Just to make clear, this person was a acquaintance, not a friend. Don't be hatin'

Anyone in CA know something about the Jaycee case? Last I heard- over a month ago, is that they found human remains in the ground next door, but nothing since.
Just heard a commercial that Oprah will have the 2 women cops -who figured something was wrong, on her show today.

No, It seems to have been hushed. There is another case of a child that was locked in a closet or small room in the news recently. Don't know if it was just allegations or fact though. Crazy!

From: Don Henley | Dirty Laundry lyrics

I make my living off the evening news
Just give me something-something I can use
People love it when you lose,
They love dirty laundry

Well, I coulda been an actor, but I wound up here
I just have to look good, I dont have to be clear
Come and whisper in my ear
Give us dirty laundry

Kick em when theyre up
Kick em when theyre down
Kick em when theyre up
Kick em when theyre down
Kick em when theyre up
Kick em when theyre down
Kick em when theyre up
Kick em all around

We got the bubble-headed-bleach-blonde who
Comes on at five
She can tell you bout the plane crash with a gleam
In her eye
Its interesting when people die-
Give us dirty laundry

Can we film the operation?
Is the head dead yet?
You know, the boys in the newsroom got a
Running bet
Get the widow on the set!
We need dirty laundry

You dont really need to find out whats going on
You dont really want to know just how far its gone
Just leave well enough alone
Eat your dirty laundry

Kick em when theyre up
Kick em when theyre down
Kick em when theyre up
Kick em when theyre down

Kick em when theyre up
Kick em when theyre down
Kick em when theyre stiff
Kick em all around

Dirty little secrets
Dirty little lies
We got our dirty little fingers in everybodys pie
We love to cut you down to size
We love dirty laundry

We can do the innuendo
We can dance and sing
When its said and done we havent told you a thing
We all know that crap is king
Give us dirty laundry!

That's a perfect example LOL.
Some ppl shouldn't watch the news...ignorance is bliss.
Some of us like to know what's going on in the world, other than gossip of celebrities breaking up.
I think Richard is making fun of me for my interest in this case.

I personally have a fascination with how f-ed up the human mind can be. My wife reads a ton and went through a spell where she was only reading about serial killers. I'm glad to report she's moved on to lighter subjects but I'm still a little fascinated with them.

Totally agree. I gave up watching mainstream news years ago when I felt it was just to depressing for me to handle, but you will still get filtered news stories like this one no matter how much you avoid it.

I do too. I was hooked on the Jeff Dahmer trial here & a little with OJ Simpson trial. It's that 'shock' value... how can they do these things & what were they thinking!? This Jaycee Dugal story is shocking & I can't wait to see that idiot Garrido get what he deserves - like hung by his bells!

I'm not making fun of anybody here, but rather commercial news organizations in general. I think that's pretty clear in the lyrics.

Don Henley sounds like a very intelligent man. A famous, recent writer wrote a book about a land where everybody was happy. Everyone but some poor guy locked up in a cage. Didnt sound very happy to me.

I'm sure Don Henley is intelligent, & he's a good writer! Nothing bad was said about him.
A few days ago, they showed a recent pic of Jaycee on tv & she looks amazingly happy & healthy. The family is doing very well. The IDIOT will be in court next month & Jaycee will testify. I can't wait.
