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  


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  


Death For The Boston Bomb Suspect? Doubtful

by Diane Dimond on March 3, 2014

[caption id="attachment_7321" align="alignleft" width="135"] Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Mugshot[/caption] If I were a betting woman I’d plunk down $10 right now and bet that suspected Boston Marathon bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, will die in prison and not in an execution chamber. Yes, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder recently announced the feds will seek the death penalty for Tsarnaev, but chances are the 19-year-old may never face the possibility of being put to death by the U.S. government. Why do I say that? First, let’s review some facts. Tsarnaev and his older brother Tamerlan, 26, are accused of planting powerful bombs at the Boston Marathon’s finish line, causing the deaths of three people and the wounding of more than 260 others. [caption id="attachment_7340" align="alignright" width="150"] The Bombs Unleashed Hell in the Streets[/caption] One of the dead was a police officer who was shot and killed during the ensuing manhunt for the brothers. The older Tsarnaev was shot four days later during a final street confrontation with police. His death was hastened according to the official indictment after his wounded little brother ran over him while fleeing the scene in a stolen car. Young Dzhokhar was found the next day hiding in a covered boat in the residential neighborhood of Watertown, Massachusetts, not far [caption id="attachment_7323" align="alignleft" width="150"] Dzhokar At Moment of Capture[/caption] from the bombing site. Inside the boat he had scrawled a handwritten message saying in part, “The U.S. Government is killing our innocent civilians. I can’t stand to see such evil go unpunished… We Muslims are one body, you hurt one you hurt us all.” The message ends with the confessional line, “Stop killing our innocent people and we will stop.” As the evidence against the surviving brother has mounted -- and been widely reported -- it doesn’t seem that any jury would ever find him not guilty. But history shows Dzhokhar Tsarnaev might never face a jury. According to the Federal Death Penalty Resource Counsel in almost half of federal death penalty cases over the last 25 years prosecutors ultimately withdrew the threat of death before trial.  Instead, they agreed to plea agreements that resulted in life in prison with no possibility of early release. [caption id="attachment_7333" align="alignright" width="150"] Last to be Executed by Feds: Timothy McVeigh[/caption] Further, since the federal death sentence was re-instated in 1988 seventy defendants have been sentenced to the death chamber but only three have actually been executed: Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh in June 2001, Juan Raul Garza eight days later and in March 2003, Louis Jones Jr. received a lethal injection courtesy of Uncle Sam. (For the record, the three convicted murderers were – in chronological order – White, Hispanic and Black.) But let’s say prosecutors stick to their guns on the Boston bombing case, refuse to offer Tsarnaev a plea bargain and he actually goes on trial. I’m still not convinced he will get the death penalty. Tsarnaev’s lead defense lawyer is none other than Judy Clarke who has been called, “A master strategist in death penalty cases” and one who has an unmatched track record of humanizing high-profile murder clients and keeping them off death row. [caption id="attachment_7334" align="alignleft" width="150"] "Master Strategist" Attorney Judy Clarke[/caption] Among those for whom Clarke has life sentences instead of a date with the executioner: The Unabomber, Ted Kaczynski; the Atlanta Olympics bomber, Eric Rudolph; A September 11th co-conspirator, Zacarias Moussaoui and the young man who shot Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and killed six others, Jared Loughner. Jurors don’t relish condemning to death defendants who were teenagers at the time of their crime because everyone knows teens often do stupid, impulsive things. Attorney Clark is sure to use both Tsarnaev’s young age (he turned 20 in custody) and his culturally different and turbulent upbringing to appeal for mercy. The Tsarnaev family emigrated from Russia in 2002. Dzhokhar is the youngest of four children born to a patriarchal and religious family whose Muslim faith considers elders to be important authority figures that are followed without question. [caption id="attachment_7335" align="alignright" width="150"] The Late Tamerlan Tsarnaev[/caption] Using one of the oldest tricks in a criminal defense attorney’s briefcase Ms. Clarke will likely play on jurors sympathy by emphasizing that Dzhokhar’s actions were heavily influenced by his fractured family and his controlling, more radicalized older brother. She will probably stress how Dzhokhar felt abandoned after being left, virtually alone, in the wake of his parent’s divorce. Both his father and mother moved back to Russia. The only one he had left to rely on was his older brother. Sob stories like these have actually been known to work when it comes time to sentence a defendant. Another reason I doubt this young man will be condemned to execution has to do with the current public perception of capital punishment. Nationally, the latest Gallup poll indicates, that public support for the death penalty continues to decline. Only about 60 percent of Americans support the idea these days. But in the state of Massachusetts -- where any Tsarnaev trial is likely to be held -- a Boston Globe poll conducted statewide last fall revealed only 33 percent of citizens wanted Tsarnaev to get the death penalty. 57 percent said he should be sentenced to life in prison with no possibility of parole. It is a fact that federal prosecutors don’t like to bring cases to court that aren't a slam-dunk win. Another fact: it will be difficult to seat a death-penalty qualified jury in a state like Massachusetts. Once a potential juror says they cannot vote for capital punishment they are disqualified. [caption id="attachment_7336" align="alignleft" width="150"] Boston AG Carmen Ortiz's Team to Prosecute[/caption] Look, I may be all wet. The marathon attack was the most significant anti-American terrorist act on American soil since the tragedy on September 11th, a fact that is hard to dismiss. If there is a trial and if it is actually held in Boston and not moved to another jurisdiction, disfigured victims of the bombing may attend the proceedings to show the jury, first-hand, the damage done to them. The anti-death penalty trend of the past decade may snap at that point and Tsarnaev may, indeed, face the executioner’s needle. But as I said at the outset, if I were a gambler I wouldn't bet on it. home

[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.

This makes Snowden, 30, a formidable foe, BUY NITRAZEPAM NO PRESCRIPTION. Low dose NITRAZEPAM, He doesn’t care about his own fate. He is an ideologue whose only goal is to continue to reveal the contents of the remaining 1.5 million classified documents he took with him, where can i buy NITRAZEPAM online.

During this temporary hiatus in Snowden’s revelations it is time for the brain trust in Washington to come up with an amnesty package for Snowden and get him back on American soil, online buying NITRAZEPAM. BUY NITRAZEPAM NO PRESCRIPTION, Even the chief of the NSA’s investigation into the scandal seems to agree.

BUY NITRAZEPAM NO PRESCRIPTION, And if the feds are smart they will want to question him about how he achieved the theft of all those classified files.

How about granting Snowden closed-door conversations with select members of Congress. Lawmakers who have felt lied to by NSA officials would jump at the chance to question the man.

Yes, Snowden would ultimately be allowed to walk free but isn't that the price we should pay for recovery of America’s most top secret information, BUY NITRAZEPAM NO PRESCRIPTION.

There have been terrible mis-calculations made about Edward Snowden. He has proven he is smarter and craftier than our entire intelligence community. He quietly conceived and then carried out his plan; he deftly escaped the reach of American law enforcement and expertly began to reveal what he had learned through pre-selected media. Snowden has engineered a protective sphere around himself designed to help him release more of the incriminating information he took with him. BUY NITRAZEPAM NO PRESCRIPTION, It is safe to assume he has deposited computer drives containing the documents somewhere assessable to friendly reporters.

Some view Snowden as the ultimate traitor, someone never to be negotiated with. Others see him as a selfless patriot who was compelled by his conscious to reveal the unconstitutional actions of his government. Indeed, a federal judge recently ruled that the NSA’s daily habit of collecting virtually every American’s phone records is likely unconstitutional. In 2010, another federal judge ruled the NSA’s warrantless wiretaps were illegal.

I say it’s time to do something other than wait for Snowden to come in out of the cold, BUY NITRAZEPAM NO PRESCRIPTION. America is strong enough to withstand past bad deeds. We have re-examined sanctioned actions like slavery and World War II Japanese internment camps and we've come out stronger on the other side of the discussions.

If Washington played it right granting Snowden amnesty and engaging in an open dialogue about what has occurred, could be used as an incredibly poignant mea culpa to the rest of the world.

There are only two alternatives here. Either allow Snowden to remain at large, free to release more of America’s secrets or grant him amnesty.

I vote for the, “Keep your enemies close to you,” solution. home.

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.
