Why people, why?

Who are these monsters that sneak around on the internet saying nasty things and sending nasty pictures to people who have lost loved ones?

They are bullies who hide behind the keypad. They get their rocks off by making other people more miserable than they already are.

A few years ago, an 18-year-old girl, Nikki Catsouras, crashed her dad’s car and was violently killed. So what did some brainiacs on the internet do? They sent horrifying pictures of the dead daughter to her parents email accounts. How much hate do you have to have inside you to do such a thing? The parents had to get off the internet and homeschool their other daughter in fear that she would be subjected to the same treatment at school.

I’m really sick and tired of people being so mean. Now Robin Williams young daughter Zelda is the new subject of harassment since her dad’s death. People have gone as far as to send fake dead pictures of her father to her social media accounts. Why?

It’s time for Twitter, Facebook and the other sites to get these hateful, nasty people offline. Harassing somebody online is no different than mocking them in person and should be treated as such.

Our country is a wonderful place to live, but I’m not so sure about some of the people that live in it.

It’s easy to hide behind a keyboard, but it shows true cowardice to behave in such an irresponsible way.

The same goes for people who leave threatening comments online for targets to see. Again I ask why? Some people can brush it off with no problem but a lot of people get very hurt.

Why? PEOPLE, why?

Jodi Arias Trial- The Uncensored Pictures & Update 4-26-13

Originally posted on A Motion for Innocence:

When I say uncensored, I mean NO bars blocking anything out.  If you’d like to see the pics, and I don’t know why you would…..the link is at the bottom of the post.  When you click on the video, the majority covers Travis’ death photos, but from 1:34:45 through 1:41:47 covers the nude photos of both Jodi and Travis.  If you must see them, then that’s your business.  I warn you!  The entire set of pics is graphic and disturbing.

Update 4-26-13:  Now I think I have  a good grip on what happened.  Jodi found out Travis was going to Mexico and wigged out.  She took pictures of him in the shower to make him vulnerable, and when he wasn’t looking, jumped on his back and started stabbing.  He struggled out of the shower trying to get her off, spreading blood and smears down the hall.  He finally did…

A Violent World

Why so much needless violence?

There were just as many murders back in the day, but nowadays the media driven fear has taken it to a new level.

Violence on TV contributes to it, the fear of sex offenders contributes to it and the Gen-Xers are just a paranoid bunch.

I think the biggest contributing factors nowadays are Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and all those social sites where potential molesters and murderers can study their potential victims.

I’m writing a book about a 13 year old girl who was murdered in 1981. It was just as tragic then as it is now. The fact is, it just wasn’t as widely heard of then.

People need to stop looking out for the wrong person. For instance, sex offenders have the lowest recidivism rate of all criminals… it’s the NON sex offender that should be feared.

We as a society also have a huge fear of sex and nudity, but have no problem with people getting their brains bashed in on TV. It is a vicious world we live in.

People may even be meaner today than they were back then, but that’s a very tough fact to prove. I met plenty of mean people back in the seventies and eighties when I was a kid, yet I came through ok as did a majority of the people.

News coverage has gone way beyond what we had back in the seventy’s, so we hear about every murder and every molestation throughout the entire United States; not just our little nook in the world.

I’m not sure that it will ever really get better, but I do know that mass incarceration is also not the answer. There’s no rehabilitation in it. We send out people twice as bad as when they went in. That to me is a very bad idea.

Use care when you’re out in this world, and you’ll stand a better chance. Keep your eyes open. Watch your kids. A little responsibility goes a long way.

Many are Responsible

Hey Former Judge Deborah Tyner…..Help pay the bill. This is yet another person you attempted to ruin!



By L.L. Brasier, Detroit Free press


A man who spent seven years in prison on a child molestation charge before his conviction was overturned has settled his lawsuit against his defense attorney for $503,000.

Jackob Trakhtenberg, a retired Chrysler engineer, was convicted of criminal sexual conduct during a 53-minute trial before an Oakland County Circuit Court judge in 2006. He was sentenced to 15 years in prison.

His court-appointed attorney, Deborah McKelvy, made no opening statement and called no witnesses except Trakhtenberg.

The case against him began after his ex-wife — following a contested divorce — made allegations that he had sexually assaulted his young daughter. The daughter, 8, also testified she had been touched.

Within days of Trakhtenberg’s conviction, his ex-wife filed a civil suit seeking Trakhtenberg’s property, retirement and bank accounts. His grown children from a previous marriage then hired civil attorney James Elliott on their father’s behalf. Jurors in that civil case determined after a six-day trial that the allegations were false and ruled against the ex-wife.

Trakhtenberg appealed his criminal conviction while in prison, and the Michigan Supreme Court overturned his conviction in 2012. He then sued McKelvy for malpractice. The case was set to go to trial but settled Tuesday. His civil attorney said the settlement was one more vindication for his client.

“He wanted his name cleared, and to get on with his life,” Elliott said. “He’s been reunited with his daughter, his family, and he wants to leave this behind.”

McKelvy, in the settlement, admitted no wrongdoing. Her attorney, Michael Sullivan, said she was relying on sound trial strategy, and that Trakhtenberg admitted to investigators on several occasions that he had touched his daughter’s genitals, although he claimed he was applying prescription ointment for an infection and had been instructed by the girl’s mother to do so.

“His defense, his only defense, given the age of his daughter and his admission he touched her genitals is that he did not do so for the purpose of sexual gratification,” Sullivan said. “Because the question of what went through Trakhtenberg’s mind when he admittedly touched his 8-year-old daughter’s genitals could only be known through his testimony, Ms. McKelvy made the strategy decision to opt for a bench trial at which Trakhtenberg would tell his side of the story.”
