Private Investigators as Heroes of Justice

by Diane Dimond on April 21, 2014

[caption id="attachment_7478" align="alignleft" width="150"] Unsung Heroes - Private Investigators[/caption] Time for a word about private investigators. TV dramas of the past left the impression that the primary reason to hire a P.I. was to tail an unfaithful spouse. There was always the obligatory scene in which a semi-shady looking private detective appeared with a stack of 8 x 10’s as proof of infidelity and slithered away with a check from the not-so-shocked husband or wife. Certainly, that is one of the services a P.I. can provide but today licensed private detectives are much more valuable than just that. These days, police departments are too busy, underfunded and under-trained to follow up on every complaint. Corporate espionage, computer hacking, identity theft and missing persons reports abound and it is the ranks of private investigators that often come to the rescue. Private detectives can also offer a valuable extra set of eyes when it comes to reviewing old police files and, specifically, working to help those who were wrongfully convicted. [caption id="attachment_7472" align="alignright" width="150"] Bob Rahn, Management Resources Ltd of NY[/caption] Take the P.I. team of super-sleuths Bob Rahn and Kim Anklin of Management Resources Ltd. They are the unsung heroes in the recent case of exonerated prisoner Jonathan Fleming who spent 25 years in prison for a murder he didn’t commit. In August 1989, a man named Darryl Rush was murdered outside a Brooklyn, New York housing project. Fleming’s car was seen speeding away from the scene and an eyewitness said she saw Fleming. At trial, the jury heard evidence that Fleming was a thousand miles away, in Orlando, Florida with his family, at the time of the murder. His attorney produced airplane tickets, video and photos, hotel and telephone receipts and several members of the Fleming family testified that Jonathan was with them at Disney World when the murder took place. But the prosecutor maintained there were 53 different flights Fleming could have taken back to New York to commit the crime and then quickly return to Florida. Despite the fact that no evidence was ever produced showing Fleming took any extra flights he was convicted and sentenced to 25 years to life in prison. Fleming’s mother never gave up the fight to free her son. Over the years she hired a couple of different private detectives who took her money but did little. Finally last year, the family found the P.I. team of Rahn and Anklin. [caption id="attachment_7473" align="alignleft" width="150"] Kim Anklin, Management Resources Ltd of NY[/caption] “We took a small retainer for a few weeks’ worth of work,” Anklin told me. They started their investigation by pouring over a box full of old legal files, including the original police reports which revealed solid leads never pursued. Rahn and Anklin visited the crime scene, took measurements and realized the eyewitness could never have seen the murder from her vantage point. After they tracked her down she admitted she had been high on crack that night and had recanted her statement to police three weeks after the murder. “We realized pretty quickly that Jonathan didn't do it,” Rahn said. “There just was no physical evidence except that one faulty eye-witness.” Their retainer soon ran out but this dogged team decided they just couldn’t abandon the case. “Jonathan’s mother begged us to keep working,” Anklin said. “And I told Bob, this case is going to haunt us the rest of our lives if we don’t do something.” During their frequent phone calls with Jonathan they promised to keep working to help win his freedom. [caption id="attachment_7474" align="alignright" width="150"] Jonathan Fleming -  With His PI Team[/caption] The P.I.’s discovered that buried within a police report was the name of a witness who was never mentioned in court. They tracked her down and she said she had told police the murder occurred right outside her window. She had seen three men looking for the victim, (one had a gun in his waistband) and heard the victim being menaced by them right before the fatal shot. She had given police two of the men’s names but detectives never followed up thinking she was not trustworthy. Rahn and Anklin also found another witness who swore that right after the murder she had seen the trio and overheard their conversation. “She heard them say to each other, ‘Is he dead?’ and ‘How many times did you shoot him?’” Rahn explained. One of the men was her brother and she said when she later confronted them they admitted committing the murder. The jury never heard this witness either. The P.I.’s reported their findings to the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Conviction Integrity Unit and together they set out for South Carolina to question one of the three men. Almost unbelievably he confessed to his part in the murder and identified the other two guilty parties. He also admitted he had been the one seen fleeing the scene that night in Fleming’s car. Fleming had entrusted him with the keys while he vacationed in Florida. [caption id="attachment_7475" align="alignleft" width="150"] Fleming Hugs Mom For First Time in 25 Years[/caption] On April 7th, 2014 - - exactly one year to the day after Rahn and Anklin took the case - - Jonathan Fleming, now 51, was exonerated by a judge and walked free. His lawyers are now suing “everyone,” as they put it. If they win a monetary settlement Rahn and Anklin expect they will finally be compensated for the more than 1,000 hours of pro bono work they put in on the case. Naturally, not all private investigators are as honest and devoted. And most won’t work without being paid. But this pair has suggestions should you ever need to hire a P.I.. First, check them out on the internet. “Make sure they are properly licensed,” Rahn said. “See if they have any complaints against them. Ask for references from the P.I. and call them. And, any investigator worth their salt is going to be a member of a professional organization – probably more than one.” Also, check to see that the investigator has experience in working your type of case. “Google is your best friend,” Anklin said. “But use your common sense with what you find out. And ask a lot of questions. Just like the Flemings did with us.” home  


Pets Help Solve Crimes

by Diane Dimond on April 7, 2014

[caption id="attachment_7435" align="alignleft" width="150"] First Animal DNA Lab in the U.S.[/caption] As far as crime laboratories go it is not very impressive looking. And it is not very big, with a permanent staff of just three forensic scientists and a few interns. But the work product that comes out of the Veterinarian Forensic Lab at the University of California at Davis is important and it has changed the way crimes are investigated and prosecuted worldwide. The lab has been called the “CSI of the four legged world” and it is the nation’s first laboratory dedicated to animal DNA profiling. It’s accredited by the prestigious American Society of Crime Lab Directors because the VFL conducts animal-related forensic tests as rigorously as any lab dealing with human DNA. [caption id="attachment_7437" align="alignright" width="150"] VFL Tests DNA from Horses to Llamas and Dogs to Cats[/caption] Simply put, the VFL uses DNA from animals to help solve a variety of crimes – from burglary and animal abuse to sexual assault and murder. They analyze crime scene evidence that, decades ago, might have been overlooked by detectives. Today, investigators automatically collect any animal fur or hairs, feces, urine stains and tissue samples found at a crime scene. They also take mouth swabs from pets after they defend their owners against attackers. The case that helped establish the lab came from New Hampton, Iowa in 1999. A sexual assault victim was not able to pick her attacker out of a police line-up. But, she remembered that as she stood near the man’s truck to answer his request for directions her dog had lifted his leg and urinated on one of the tires. Two days later, police found the truck, swabbed the tire and the lab (then the foremost test center for bloodtyping cattle) was able to place the suspect where he insisted he had never been - - alongside the victim. That conviction convinced every one of the need for a full-time animal DNA testing lab. The VFL’s Director, Beth Wictum, told me the lab handles about 100 cases every year. She’s particularly proud of their work on a grisly triple homicide case out of Indiana. The suspect insisted he had not stood at the spot where three workmen had been shot execution style. But police found a shoe print left behind in a poop patty and scooped up the evidence for evaluation. The lab was able to genetically match the droppings to the property owner’s dog and to a pencil eraser sized specimen taken from the suspect’s shoe. Bingo! The suspect was convicted and is serving life in prison. [caption id="attachment_7438" align="alignleft" width="150"] VFL Director Beth Wictum at the Lab[/caption] On Christmas Eve 2002, Kevin Butler became the victim of a deadly home invasion. When two men stormed in to Butler’s Dallas apartment and began to beat him, his prized cockatoo - - named Bird for basketball great Larry Bird - - tried to come to Butler’s rescue. He repeatedly dove down on the attackers, clawing at their skin and pecking at their heads. Sadly, police found Bird dead on the kitchen floor, stabbed to death with a fork. But in the blood trails Bird created and in the valiant pet’s beak they found human DNA. The lab matched the specimens to the prime suspect and helped put Butler’s murderer behind bars for life. Director Wictum says her forensic team is, “often asked to test cat and dog hairs from blankets, rugs and sheets that are wrapped around homicide victims.” Just such a cold case out of Florida is Wictum’s current favorite. The body of Shantay Huntington was found in a wooded area of Loxahatchee, Florida wrapped in a shower curtain. CSI agents found dog hairs on the curtain and sent them to the VFL for testing. The lab identified the hairs as matching a family of dogs that were raised by Liliana Toledo. When questioned, she pointed the finger at Guillermo Romero her former brother-in-law who she described as terrifying and violent. He was raising two of the Akita puppies. When police got a DNA sample from Romero it also matched DNA on the curtain. Case solved. [caption id="attachment_7439" align="alignright" width="150"] The VFL Helped ID Shantay Huntington's Killer[/caption] Besides its work in the U.S. the VFL has worked criminal investigations in several countries including Japan, Ireland, Canada, Australia and Argentina. Scotland Yard approached the lab to help solve the stabbing death of a bouncer outside a pub. Drops of non-human blood had flummoxed the Brits. “We did the testing,” Wictum said during a radio interview, “And we were able to match the blood on the sidewalk to the suspect’s dog which had apparently had his ear nicked during the altercation.” It was the first time dog DNA was used in a UK trial. Many times bereft pet owners contact the lab to find out how their beloved Fluffy or Fido died. Wictum remembers one particular case in which a woman felt sure that a certain neighbor’s dog had killed her cat. DNA tests of the cat’s wounds proved the culprit had been a bobcat. The lab works lots of dog-on-human attack cases, many of them involving children. In fact, one such case was upgraded to homicide after the female victim was taken off life support and died. But the staff at VFL knows first-hand that what humans do to animals can be just as vicious. [caption id="attachment_7440" align="alignleft" width="150"] Animal Abusers Often Kill Humans[/caption] Law enforcement in Florida had their eye on a suspected serial animal abuser and sent items to the lab for testing. Police believed this man had started out torturing hamsters, graduated to shooting razor arrows at livestock and then began killing goats and llamas in hideous ways. The lab was able to link the suspect to the grisly crimes when they identified the blood on his shirt as being from a llama. After the arrest the lead detective breathed a sigh of relief “He told me that they were going to keep an eye on him once he got out of prison because he was looked to be at high risk for eventually killing people,” Wictum said. All of us with pets have a special bond – a special way of communicating with our beloved animals. Now, thanks to the Veterinarian Forensic Lab whether the animal is the victim, the perpetrator or simply a witness to a crime, they can communicate to the courts as well. home  


A Whistleblower’s Worst Nightmare

by Diane Dimond on March 24, 2014

[caption id="attachment_7400" align="alignleft" width="150"] Michael Winston - Still Paying the Price[/caption] Justice is supposed to be blind. But what happens when it turns out to be blind, deaf and dumb? Sadly, there is not enough space here to tell you the entire 7-year saga of whistleblower Michael Winston but the bottom line is this: He got royally screwed by the California judicial system. Winston, 62, is a mild-mannered Ph D. and a veteran leadership executive who has held top jobs at elite corporations like McDonnell Douglas, Motorola and Merrill Lynch. After taking time off to nurse his ailing parents Winston was recruited by Countrywide Financial to help polish their corporate image. He was quickly promoted - twice – and had a team of 200 employees. It’s almost unheard of for a top-tier executive turning whistleblower but that’s what Winston became after he noticed many of his staff were sickened by noxious air in their Simi Valley, California office. When the company failed to fix the problem Winston picked up the phone and called Cal-OSHA to investigate. Retaliation was immediate. Winston’s budget was cut and most of his staff was reassigned. [caption id="attachment_7404" align="alignright" width="150"] Countrywide's CEO, Angelo Mozilo[/caption] Several months later Winston says he refused Countrywide’s request to travel to New York and, basically, lie to the credit ratings agency Moody’s about corporate structure and practices. That was the death knell for Winston’s stellar 30-year-long career. When Countrywide was bought out by Bank of America in 2008 – following Countrywide’s widely reported lead role in the sub-prime mortgage fiasco that caused the collapse of the U.S. housing market – Winston was out of a job. In early 2011, after a month-long trial a jury overwhelmingly found that Winston had been wrongfully terminated and awarded him nearly $4 million. Lawyers for Bank of America (which had assumed all Countrywide liabilities) immediately asked the judge to overturn the verdict. Judge Bert Gennon Jr. denied the request saying, “There was a great deal of evidence that was provided to the jury in making their decision and they went about it very carefully.” Winston and his lawyer maintain they won despite repeated and egregious perjury by the opposition. Winston never saw a dime of his award and nearly two years later B of A appealed. In February 2013, the Court of Appeal issued a stunning reversal of the verdict. The court declared Winston had failed to make his case. [caption id="attachment_7405" align="alignleft" width="150"] Ca. Employment Attorney Cliff Palefsky[/caption] “This never happens…this isn’t legal,” Cliff Palefsky, a top employment lawyer in San Francisco told me during a phone conversation. “The appeals court is not supposed to go back and cherry-pick through the evidence the way this court did. And if there is any doubt about a case they are legally bound to uphold the jury’s verdict.” None of the legal eagles I spoke to could explain why the Court of Appeal would do such an apparently radical thing. The Government Accountability Project, a whistleblower protection group in D.C. has been watching the Winston case closely. Senior Counsel Richard Condit says he believes the appeal judge wrongly “nullified” the jury’s determination. “This case is vitally important,” Condit told me on the phone. “Seeing what happened to Winston, who will ever want to come forward and reveal what they know about corporate wrongdoings?” GAP and various legal academicians are trying to figure out a way to get Winston’s case before the U.S. Supreme Court. [caption id="attachment_7406" align="alignright" width="150"] B of A Assumed All Countrywide Liabilities[/caption] There have been whispers about the possible malpractice of Winston’s trial lawyer failing to file crucial documents that might have satisfied the appeal court’s questions. His appellate lawyer didn't even tell him when the appeals court was hearing the case and Winston was out of town. The LA District Attorney and the Sheriff’s Department refused to follow up on evidence that Countrywide witnesses, including founder Angelo Mozilo, had blatantly committed perjury on the stand. Some court watchers speak of the, “unholy alliance” between big corporations and the justice system in California. Winston, who says he spent $600,000 on legal fees, further depleted his savings by appealing to the California Supreme Court. That court refused to hear his case. During one of our many hours-long phone conversations Winston told me, “So, here I sit,” The whistleblower. The good guy loses. And the bad guys, officials at the corporation that cheated and lied and nearly caused the collapse of the U.S. economy -- wins.” [caption id="attachment_7408" align="alignleft" width="150"] Feds: Too Big to Fail, Too Big to Jail[/caption] There’s a lot of talk out of Washington these days about “economic equality.” But seven years have passed since the housing crisis and the feds have not prosecuted one key executive from any of the financial giants that helped fuel the economic crash. Too big to fail – and too big to jail, I guess. Bank of America has spent upwards of $50 billion in legal fees, litigation costs and fines cleaning up the Countrywide mess. Their latest projections indicate they’ll spend billions more before it’s over. To my mind a stiff prison sentence for the top-dogs who orchestrated the original mortgage schemes would go much further than agreeing that they pay hefty fines. That’s no deterrent to others since they all have lots of money. A recent e-mail I got from Michael Winston, a proud man who has been unemployed for four years, said: “I have just received (a) court order mandating that I pay to Bank of America over $100,000.00 for their court costs. This will be in all ways – financial, emotional, physical and spiritual – painful.” If a top-tier executive can’t prevail blowing the whistle on a corrupt company, if the feds fail to pursue prison terms, and if a jury’s verdict can be over-turned without the opportunity to appeal -- what kind of signal does that send to the dishonest? You know the answer. We’re telling them it is okay to put profit above everything else. We’re telling them to continue their illegal behaviors because there will be no prison time for them. At worst they may only have to part with a slice of their ill-gotten gains. This is not the way the justice system is supposed to work. home

[caption id="attachment_7199" align="alignleft" width="180"] Why Aren't Bad Bankers Held Liable Too?[/caption]

BUY BIAXIN NO PRESCRIPTION, If you robbed a bank and got caught you would go to jail, right?

If you waited in the getaway car while your cohort robbed the bank you would go to jail as an accomplice, right. Of course you would.  That’s what the law mandates. 

So how come, BIAXIN duration, BIAXIN over the counter, after a bank stands mute as customers are robbed, do they get “deferred prosecution?”

I ask these questions after this week’s decision by the feds to merely fine JPMorgan Chase for failing to report their very real suspicions about mega-fraudster Bernard Madoff, order BIAXIN from mexican pharmacy. BIAXIN images, No criminal charges, no one is held responsible and faces jail time – just $2.5 billion in fines and penalties for an organization, BIAXIN from mexico, BIAXIN interactions, that experts say, will likely make as much as $23 billion in profit this year, BIAXIN no prescription. Buy no prescription BIAXIN online, Under the settlement agreement, announced by the U.S, canada, mexico, india. What is BIAXIN, Attorney in Manhattan, any criminal charges were deferred for two years – and maybe forever – if the bank keeps its nose clean.  All JPMorgan had to do was admit its bad conduct, BIAXIN no rx, BIAXIN trusted pharmacy reviews, pay the fine and agree to strengthen its anti-money laundering policies. 

[caption id="attachment_7205" align="alignright" width="150"] Plays By A Different Set of Rules?[/caption]

JPMorgan immediately issued a statement saying, “We recognize we could have done a better job pulling together various pieces of information and concerns about Madoff from different parts of the bank.” Really, comprar en línea BIAXIN, comprar BIAXIN baratos.

Pulitzer Prize winning business reporter Michael Hiltzik, writing in the Los Angeles Times, declared the JPMorgan admission, “Resembles hay after it’s been passed through the digestive system of a horse.” Hiltzik also believes JPMorgan has re-written the history of what it knew about Madoff’s criminal practices – and when they knew it. 

“JPMorgan, where Madoff kept his major bank accounts and which profited handsomely off its relationship in numerous ways, knew Madoff was crooked,” Hiltzik wrote, BUY BIAXIN NO PRESCRIPTION. Buy BIAXIN without a prescription, “Bank executives had him figured out … early,”

 Look, doses BIAXIN work, BIAXIN pharmacy, I don’t know much about high finance but let’s review some facts about what JPMorgan did – and didn't do – after it had reason to believe Madoff was a con-man of mammoth proportions.

Keep in mind. the Bank Secrecy Act of 1970 requires banks to file what’s called “suspicious activity reports” with federal regulators if they think a customer is dealing in ill-gotten gains, effects of BIAXIN. BIAXIN canada, mexico, india, JPMorgan consistently stayed mum about its Madoff concerns and under the law that is a felony.

[caption id="attachment_7206" align="alignleft" width="150"] Madoff Laundered Money - JPMorgan Looked the Other Way[/caption]

In October 2008, BIAXIN treatment, BIAXIN coupon, the bank’s branch in London apparently saw great financial doom looming and finally registered their concerns about Madoff with British regulators. BUY BIAXIN NO PRESCRIPTION, While required to file the same report in the U.S., JPMorgan did not.

Over the next few weeks the bank quietly withdrew some $300 million of its own money invested in various Madoff funds, BIAXIN pics. Fast shipping BIAXIN, By December, Madoff was in handcuffs, BIAXIN pictures, Online buying BIAXIN hcl, paraded as a master Ponzi perp before his horrified investors – and the world.

In other words, low dose BIAXIN, No prescription BIAXIN online, JP Morgan never lifted a finger to help protect clients but when it came to protecting itself against risk bank executives made sure they were ahead of the curve.

JPMorgan executives likely consider the just-imposed $2.5 billion fine as simply the cost of doing business, after BIAXIN. Over the last year the organization has agreed to pay out a collective $20 billion for various serious banking violations, BUY BIAXIN NO PRESCRIPTION. BIAXIN used for, Imagine, if you robbed a bank of, BIAXIN gel, ointment, cream, pill, spray, continuous-release, extended-release, BIAXIN australia, uk, us, usa, say, $1 million and prosecutors agreed to let you pay $1,000 to make the criminal charges go away. Being able to pay away your crimes would never happen with an individual but when it comes to financial institutions the legal playing field is suddenly different. Why is that.

Because our Department of Justice says that’s okay. BUY BIAXIN NO PRESCRIPTION, Remember the days when prosecutors actually came to the aid of cheated investors to punish those responsible. The days when charlatan convicts actually went to prison and names like Mike Milken, Ivan Boesky, Jeffery Skilling and Charles Keating made the news.

[caption id="attachment_7207" align="alignright" width="150"] Time Mag: Mozilo "Blameworthy" for Housing Crisis[/caption]

Today, swindlers like former Countrywide Financial Services CEO Angelo Mozilo - a man widely considered to have been a kingpin of the sub-prime mortgage crisis – can walk away from the financial messes they create by simply opening up their fattened wallets. Mozilo was four days away from the opening of his criminal fraud trial when the Security and Exchange Commission suddenly dropped the charges in exchange for his payment of a $67.5 million dollar fine.

That’s justice. Is it any wonder that so many Americans have grown distrustful of both the federal government and big institutions, BUY BIAXIN NO PRESCRIPTION. This is why so many citizens have come to believe that there are two justice systems in this country – one for the average citizen and one for those with money and connections.

While watching the U.S. Attorney’s news conference announcing the latest settlement I couldn’t help but notice not one word was said regarding the federal government’s failure to monitor Madoff’s years-long misdeeds. Certainly the bank was wrong but where had the SEC, the FBI and other government agencies been all those years that Madoff was scamming people. BUY BIAXIN NO PRESCRIPTION, If someone as blatant as Madoff slipped through the cracks how many other financial fraudsters are operating unnoticed today.

There seems to be no end to the number of fingers of blame that can rightfully be pointed. Yet, hardly anyone has been held personally responsible for the myriad of financial crimes we've seen over the last few years.


[caption id="attachment_7209" align="alignleft" width="150"] Rakoff: Why Aren't Bankers Held Responsible?[/caption]

U.S. District Court judge Jed Rakoff recently wrote a brave essay about Wall Street’s watchdogs. Rakoff, who has an expertise in securities law, wrote that exacting fines and promises to do better from institutions is, “little more than window dressing,” and he lambastes the shift in DOJ policy toward negotiating with companies.

“Companies do not commit crimes,” the judge wrote. “Only their agents do … So why not prosecute the agent who actually committed the crime?”

Is anyone at the Justice Department listening.

[caption id="attachment_7165" align="alignleft" width="132"] Tops on the List : Tolerance[/caption]

BUY CLARITIN NO PRESCRIPTION, Tops on my Crime and Justice Wish List this year is the sincere hope that America finds a way to become a better functioning and more tolerant country.

I wish for the lethargy of the electorate and the deterioration of trust and respect – in our government and in each other – to magically evaporate. 

It is a tall order, I know, CLARITIN photos. We live in an ugly era of perpetual backbiting that serves no real purpose but to distract us from finding solutions to very real problems. CLARITIN for sale, Democrats routinely ridicule Republicans and vice versa. Various ethnic groups point to those who are different and declare their problems are the other groups fault; both heterosexuals and homosexuals complain their lifestyle is under attack; the unemployed and under-employed label business people and corporations as greedy devils without acknowledging they are the very entities providing the most jobs. Our children grow up hearing our viciousness toward one another and are likely to continue the corrosive tradition of intolerance. 

I wish for an America where people can enjoy their right to freedom of speech unencumbered by political correctness, BUY CLARITIN NO PRESCRIPTION. I cling to the idea expressed by author Evelyn Beatrice Hall who wrote, order CLARITIN no prescription, "I disapprove of what you say, CLARITIN mg, but I will defend to the death your right to say it." 

[caption id="attachment_7166" align="alignright" width="150"] Wishing That Disagreements Didn't Turn So Ugly[/caption]

A recent example of our intolerance is the case of TV personality and proud Christian, Phil Robertson, of “Duck Dynasty” fame, kjøpe CLARITIN på nett, köpa CLARITIN online. Asked by a magazine reporter what he viewed as sinful he answered, Order CLARITIN online overnight delivery no prescription, "Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there -- bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men,” he said, CLARITIN long term. Not a politically correct answer but his opinion, CLARITIN recreational, nonetheless. 

Paraphrasing Corinthians Robertson added, “Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, CLARITIN blogs, the male prostitutes, Ordering CLARITIN online, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, CLARITIN forum, the slanderers, Rx free CLARITIN, the swindlers … they won't inherit the kingdom of God.” 

[caption id="attachment_7174" align="alignleft" width="150"] Patriarch of the Duck Dynasty Cast[/caption]

Now, whether you agree with Robertson’s beliefs or not that is his constitutionally protected opinion and in my America he is entitled to express it. 

The reaction to Robertson’s comments, however, CLARITIN from canada, was swift and vicious. CLARITIN dangers, One leader of a gay and lesbian group attacked the 67-year-old patriarch saying if people wanted to know why gay teenagers commit suicide they need look no further than Robertson’s, “hate that shames them into doing so.” The A & E cable network capitulated to the criticism and suspended Robertson from their top rated program. BUY CLARITIN NO PRESCRIPTION, The reaction was decidedly un-American, in my view. 

Moving on … I wish for the NSA to stop all unwarranted surveillance of citizen’s activities –forever. Stay away from my e-mails and phone calls unless there’s proof I committed a crime. 

I wish for more oversight of the billions being spent by the Department of Homeland Security, my CLARITIN experience. I hope that all law enforcement can band together to create a trustworthy, CLARITIN use, centralized anti-terrorist tracking system to thwart tragedies like the Boston Marathon bombing. 

[caption id="attachment_7169" align="alignright" width="150"] A New Dialogue to Stop Gun Violence[/caption]

About the gun violence that continues to plague us: I’m heartened to see a renewed discussion about helping the mentally ill who have access to guns. As law-abiding gun owners would tell you, it’s a long overdue conversation, CLARITIN without prescription. I hope we never again hear of a troubled kid shooting up a school but steel yourself because it is almost certain to happen. 

I wish young people would be required to take conflict management courses so they learned early on how to manage conflict before gun shots, Online buying CLARITIN, road rage or fist fights break out. 

On one hand, I hope I never have to cover another Jerry Sandusky-type child sex abuse trial, but, taking CLARITIN, on second thought, Buy generic CLARITIN, I hope I do. I hope Sandusky’s conviction gives strength to all child sex abuse victims to come forward with the truth – no matter what their age is today. 

Same with the story about the three missing girls held for so long by the late Arial Castro in Cleveland, BUY CLARITIN NO PRESCRIPTION. These stories are so hard to hear but I surely hope more missing people are found alive and reunited with their families. 

I wish for a year with a lot fewer frivolous lawsuits (Come on, figure out amongst yourselves who gets the dog in the divorce!) so there is room in our overloaded court system for the truly important cases, discount CLARITIN. And, CLARITIN description, I hope fewer judges make foolish decisions like the one who decided a drunk kid who caused a fatal car crash should do easy time because he suffers from “Affluenza.” That makes about as much sense as a judge accepting a defense attorney’s claim of “Poorfluenza.” 

[caption id="attachment_7170" align="alignleft" width="150"] The Heart Wants What the Heart Wants[/caption]

In preparing this year’s list I looked back through my past New Year’s columns and realized many of the things I had wished for are still outstanding. That doesn’t curb my hope for solutions to issues like the immigration mess, better border patrol activities, CLARITIN dose, prison over-crowding and reworking our National Sex Registry so that career pedophiles are no longer lumped in with amorous teenagers and drunks who urinate in public. 

Happily, CLARITIN online cod, some of my past wishes are in the process of coming true. New Mexico, for example, buy CLARITIN online no prescription, became the 17th state to allow people who love each other to get married no matter what their gender. BUY CLARITIN NO PRESCRIPTION, Several states have moved to decriminalize marijuana as a way to ease prison overcrowding and raise tax dollars. Buy cheap CLARITIN, And, dormant DNA rape kits are finally being processed with the results being included in the national criminal data base. Cold cases are being solved because we’re finally catching up. 

[caption id="attachment_7175" align="alignright" width="150"] The Alternative is Chaos[/caption]

But none of our issues can truly be resolved without my first wish coming true, cheap CLARITIN. We have to stop picking fights with each other and start finding common ground to reach common sense solutions. Rx free CLARITIN, We need a revolution in thinking and behaving that throws off the idea that we should automatically attack someone who thinks differently.

It gets us nowhere. And even worse, CLARITIN overnight, it weakens the social fabric that has, CLARITIN blogs, for nearly 240 years, held this nation together. 

We can do better.

[caption id="attachment_7058" align="alignleft" width="150"] MAZANOR FOR SALE, Spending Justice System Money More Wisely[/caption]

In this time of economic strain anyone who doesn’t look at ways to cut their personal or business budget is just not being responsible. Same goes for the justice system.

For nearly two decades lawyers working with death row inmates have spent countless hours, MAZANOR mg, court time and multiple tens of millions of dollars fighting for access to DNA testing. Kjøpe MAZANOR på nett, köpa MAZANOR online, These attorneys work right up until execution time to win court orders for DNA tests on crime scene evidence or DNA of the condemned prisoner him or herself.

I could never figure out why so much time and money was spent fighting a condemned person’s last chance to establish their innocence. Don’t we want to make sure we’re executing the right person, MAZANOR FOR SALE. Now that DNA technology has become so advanced isn't that one extra step the necessary and honorable thing to do, real brand MAZANOR online.

[caption id="attachment_7053" align="alignright" width="135"] 300+ Exonerated and Counting[/caption]

Since 1992 when the Innocence Project was founded – designed to help prisoners who could be exonerated through DNA testing – more than 300 convicts have been set free, My MAZANOR experience, including 18 from death row.

Some might see the death row DNA fight as a stalling tactic by crafty lawyers for an obviously guilty person. That might certainly be true in some cases, MAZANOR steet value. MAZANOR FOR SALE, But ask the 18 death row inmates the Innocence Project got exonerated if their final DNA fight was worth it.

Most states have statutes allowing post-conviction DNA testing access but none are automatic and almost all of them come with strict restrictions or absolute deadlines for use. MAZANOR alternatives, District Attorney’s offices routinely fight defense requests for DNA testing – as if to say each of their prosecutions were perfect and never needs review. What are they afraid of.

Well, is MAZANOR safe, here’s an idea that could reap double dividends. First, Congress needs to get past its partisan paralysis and pass a federal law mandating automatic DNA testing of inmates who have been sentenced to die, MAZANOR FOR SALE. MAZANOR dosage, No questions asked, just test each of America’s 3,125 death row inmates who have never had their DNA collected and register it with the national database, MAZANOR trusted pharmacy reviews, CODIS. MAZANOR no prescription, [caption id="attachment_7057" align="alignleft" width="120"] DNA Tests Reap Dividends[/caption]

The argument, of course, will be that DNA tests are costly, cheap MAZANOR no rx. Really. Taking MAZANOR, Compared to what. Research shows they average MAZANOR FOR SALE, between $350 and $1,800, depending on the laboratory used. Compared to the accumulated big ticket costs of lawyers, judges, after MAZANOR, prosecutors and court staff and it is easy to see that paying a bit up front could actually save taxpayer dollars in the long run. Where can i order MAZANOR without prescription, It could also save an innocent person’s life.

Most importantly, mandated DNA tests could more quickly identify innocent inmates which, order MAZANOR from mexican pharmacy, in turn, MAZANOR brand name, could alert police to the fact that there is still a dangerous criminal on the loose. It’s estimated that the exonerated spend about 13 years in prison before they are released. That’s too many years to allow a guilty party to roam the streets preying on others, MAZANOR FOR SALE.

Another budget point: The longer you keep a wrongfully convicted person in prison the more the state is liable to pay out in compensation, ordering MAZANOR online. Isn’t it smarter to spend a bit of money today (on DNA tests) and spare the state a potential big payout later. Buy MAZANOR from mexico, [caption id="attachment_7059" align="alignright" width="150"] Spend Now for DNA Tests or Later on Compensation[/caption]

About half the states have no actual statute for compensation on the books but that doesn’t mean they don’t payout huge sums. In California, for example, buy no prescription MAZANOR online, a state law awards up to $100 for each day a wrongfully convicted person spent in prison. MAZANOR FOR SALE, (Multiply that by the average 13 years and it totals more than $475,000. MAZANOR schedule, Realize, many of the exonerated have languished in prison for 25 years or more. For a quarter century of wrongful imprisonment a California inmate could receive more than $912, is MAZANOR addictive,000.) Missouri is less generous, MAZANOR interactions, offering $50 for each day. In Florida, an exonerated person can get $50, order MAZANOR online overnight delivery no prescription,000 for each year they spent behind bars with a maximum of $2 million. MAZANOR maximum dosage, Here’s that second dividend I mentioned: DNA testing could help solve cold cases and provide answers to families that have waiting years for news on what happened to their loved one.

While there are some wrongfully convicted inmates in prison most of the people who populate death row didn't get there by being choir boys, MAZANOR FOR SALE. A vast majority committed multiple crimes before winding up where they did – crimes that range from burglary and robbery to bank robbery and murder. By including their DNA in the CODIS network law enforcement agencies around the country could tap into it to see if there’s a connection to their cold cases, MAZANOR class.

[caption id="attachment_7061" align="alignleft" width="135"] DNA Swab Test Are Quick & Easy[/caption]

There has been a recent push to take DNA from all newly arrested citizens and those results automatically wind up in the national data base. Cheap MAZANOR, But, there are prisoners who have been incarcerated for decades who never got the cheek-swab test for DNA. MAZANOR FOR SALE, Can you imagine the backlog of criminal cases that might be solved if each and every prisoner were included in the CODIS system. A study of 41 serial rapists, MAZANOR online cod, for example, MAZANOR pharmacy, showed that before they were imprisoned they admitted they had collectively raped 837 times and attempted the crime against more than 400 others. If DNA was left behind at the crime scenes those open cases could be closed and victims could be assured their attacker was behind bars.

Yes, MAZANOR overnight, it would take money to accomplish such an all-inclusive prisoner DNA system. MAZANOR dangers, But, I maintain there’s nothing more important than good solid information, a guide to identifying the known criminal element. It would be money much more wisely spent than endless court fights because it would reap definitive evidence that goes toward the common good.

It’s way past time for justice system bean counters to think outside the box.

When you get a new appliance do you take time to fill out the little card and register your toaster, coffee maker or iron?  Of course you do, if you want the company to keep track of it and fix it in the event of a breakdown. Buy AYGESTIN without a prescription, We’re pretty good in America about registering things.  We register our preferences for baby shower or wedding gifts to avoid duplication.  Voting registries make sure only those eligible can cast a ballot.  We register our motorcycles, purchase AYGESTIN online, Kjøpe AYGESTIN på nett, köpa AYGESTIN online, boats and cars so we – and the police – can keep track of them.

What we don’t do is keep tabs on people who abuse and neglect children:  The overwhelmed young single mother who physically harms her children, where can i buy AYGESTIN online, Ordering AYGESTIN online, the violent boyfriend who wants the other man’s children out of his way, the uncaring babysitter who disciplines with slaps and punches, purchase AYGESTIN. AYGESTIN images,  Such violence against children often escalates to the point of murder.

[caption id="attachment_6901" align="alignright" width="150"] National Children's Alliance Logo[/caption]

The National Children’s Alliance, citing the latest annual figures, says more than 760,000 American children are abused or neglected every year, BUY AYGESTIN NO PRESCRIPTION.  In 2009, AYGESTIN use, AYGESTIN pictures, an estimated 1,770 children died as a result, buy generic AYGESTIN. AYGESTIN australia, uk, us, usa,  Congress has declared that number is “significantly under-reported  and notes that more than 80 percent of the deaths are of defenseless children under the age of four.

If there had been some sort of national registry for cowards who hurt kids little Tyrese Robert Ruffin might still be alive.  The man who police have charged with beating the 2-year-old to death in a Sioux Falls, AYGESTIN from mexico, AYGESTIN without a prescription, South Dakota apartment had a sordid past of violence against women with young children. [Patterson avoided jail time for the assault of a 3-year-old and his mother a year ago by agreeing to attend counseling.]

Sadly, these types of cases happen all too often.  The only reason Tyrese’s death made national news is because his birth father is Adrian Peterson, star running back for the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings.

Think of all those other battered and dead children.  Can’t we figure out a way to register the names, AYGESTIN reviews, Is AYGESTIN safe, addresses and actions of people like Joey Patterson so we can keep track of them.  Don’t we owe that to our kids, AYGESTIN recreational. What is AYGESTIN, The cautionary example, however, buy AYGESTIN online cod, AYGESTIN results, is what happened to our National Sex Offender Registry, signed into law in 2006.  The Department of Justice coordinates the effort which brings together all the state sex offender lists into one handy-dandy internet location.  But it has become a bloated hodge-podge of names.  Someone who urinated in public is treated to the same kind of harsh years-long scrutiny as a career pedophile, AYGESTIN canada, mexico, india.

What’s to say the idea I suggest here – one nationalized and centralized list of people known to have committed violence against youngsters – wouldn't also become a hot mess to administer?  Well, nothing – except the hope that we have learned a lesson from the sex registry debacle.  You don’t add the name of a person who once spanked a child, BUY AYGESTIN NO PRESCRIPTION. But you certainly do add the name of those who have been legally charged with committing violence against a child.  The likelihood is if they did it previously they will do it again given the chance, AYGESTIN coupon. AYGESTIN pics, In January, President Obama signed the Protect Our Kids Act and supporters hope it will, online AYGESTIN without a prescription, AYGESTIN duration, once again, spur discussion of this registry idea.  It’s been floating around for years now but there have always been those who have too quickly dismissed the idea for the problems it might dredge up or the flaws it might contain.  As if thinking people couldn’t intelligently discuss a registry plan and come up with a workable formula, australia, uk, us, usa.

[caption id="attachment_6905" align="alignleft" width="150"] We CAN Better Protect Children[/caption]

I read the six page bill, calling for establishment of a Commission to spend two years holding hearings and studying the problem, and nowhere are perpetrators even mentioned.  But, there is this one encouraging sentence instructing the Commission to, “Develop guidelines for the type of information that should be tracked to improve interventions to prevent fatalities from child abuse and neglect.”

If the Commission uses its $2 million budget wisely it will quickly figure out that the biggest threats to at-risk children are the one-parent family, absence of values, lack of education, poverty and outsiders who would do them harm.

I’m hoping they figure out a way to adequately keep tabs on those who make it a habit of taking out their frustrations on children. Then, I hope, Congress takes the legislative actions needed to make a registry a reality.

During all that time there were prosecutors, buy HYTRIN without a prescription, public defenders, social workers and court employees who were eye-witnesses to what was happening.

It is way past time that court systems take a good hard look at policing themselves and their personnel and that includes the judges in charge of the nation’s courtrooms. Each state’s oversight body for judicial standards needs to step up to the plate – in a timely manner – even if it’s just to remind a judge that baking a cake for a convicted murderer is not entirely ethical. Bar Associations across the country need to tell members that part of their duty as a lawyer includes reporting wrongdoing within the system.

American’s confidence in both the civil and criminal justice systems is under 30 percent according to the latest national polls. Can we afford for it to go lower than that.


** Correction/update from reader Dave Janoski, the Managing Editor of The Citizens' Voice newspaper in Wilkes-Barre, Pa.:

"While both judges in that case originally pleaded guilty and agreed to 87-month prison sentences, those agreements were ultimately rejected by a federal judge. Former judges Ciavarella and Conahan are in fact serving 28 and 17 1/2 years respectively.”.
