Major corrections needed. E-mail if you don't want them in the comments.

Jill

You made 13 false statements about me in one article what kind of writer are you? You need to go back and check your sources and fact check everything you stated about me or remove it immediately. I will be sending a formal letter on Monday demanding a formal retraction. Sincerely Jill Simpson

Glynn Wilson

We tried to reach to with corrections, but since you have not responded:

For starters, the governor of Alabama is Bob Riley, not Rob Riley. Rob is Bob Riley's son.

Whoever wrote this needs to talk to an expert and fix this post.

Justice watcher

I was hopeful that you'd get it right when I saw your listing of Mary Lacy, the former worst prosecutor ever of Boulder, Colo. But nope, you just bought into the PR without knowing the facts. Lacy cleared the Ramseys on the basis of DNA which, in this homicide, makes little difference except to a desperate defense attorney. DNA is only significant in about 30% of criminal cases; in the Ramsey case it is mere artifact. What about the cord that was wrapped around the child's neck -- shouldn't that also have the mysterious DNA that points to an intruder, if Lacy's idea is to be considered valuable? It doesn't. And Lacy's dumb pronouncement ignores tons of other forensic evidence that leads right to the Ramseys, like Patsy's fibers wrapped inside the cord, John's fibers in the crotch of her underwear, the bogus ransom note that is reminiscent of Patsy's writing and speaking style, and more. The problem wasn't finding an intruder -- it was trying to tell a jury which of the two did which act that ended the girl's life. You can't just blame them both -- a jury would want to know more and by hanging together the Ramseys bought their freedom. Read Dr. Cyril Wecht's book "Who Killed JonBenet Ramsey?" for a more educated look at the case.

And speaking of Wecht, why don't you have Mary Beth Buchanan, the PA US Attorney on the list? She wasted millions of taxpayer dollars with a criminal campaign against him for using his office fax machine for personal business. (She's the same monster who put Tommy Chong in prison for 9 months for selling bongs over the Internet.) The Wecht jury deadlocked with jurors saying they kept waiting for evidence that never came from the prosecution, and Buchanan still wants a retrial. That is wasteful spending and disrespectful of the legal process. She should be number one on your list.

Foti fan

You've got it backwards - Charles Foti is a hero to the people of New Orleans. Since when is "involuntary euthanasia" acceptable? That's what Dr. Anna Marie Pou and her nurses did to possibly dozens of viable, elderly patients she refused to evacuate. If the evidence was properly presented to the grand jury, she would be in jail now where she belongs. Instead the then-DA spiked the expert results and buried the case.

gastedmyflabbers

With the possible exception of under-investigating Karr the Ramsey family may take exception to this post and criticism of Lacy. John Ramsey speaks quite highly of Lacy on the DNA project website. http://jonbenetsblogs.blogspot.com/

Also find there a few facts that contradict the information posted here.

ps; Wecht's book was written based on evidence available at that time- - new DNA = old news

"And Lacy's dumb pronouncement ignores tons of other forensic evidence that leads right to the Ramseys, like Patsy's fibers wrapped inside the cord, John's fibers in the crotch of her underwear, the bogus ransom note that is reminiscent of Patsy's writing and speaking style, and more."

It just never stops! These references are not factual just pure speculation and rumor. Those fibers have not been sourced to the Ramseys, period. EVER. And the ransom note has stronger probable author. But don't take my word for it, this is easy enough for anyone to source for themselves.

Jill

You should really read the maintaining integrity section of the texas bars rules of ethics since you advertise on your firm website to do those kinds of cases. Maybe you should look closely at 8.02(A). You have falsely stated Ms Canary managed me. She I believe would legally qualify as a judicial officer that you have made a false statement about. I have had people for two days trying to get this corrected Sir and all the other mistakes you made and stated about me Iam not amused that you have not taken the time to fix these mistakes. This has gone into articles all over the country shame on you for not maintaining your website. Further shame on you for not fixing these mistakes when you know they are wrong. Further shame on you for making false statements about officers of the court.

You forgot Rachel"black,fat, ass ,dumb" Paulose.

I agree with your assessment of Mary Lacy but you are entirely wrong about Cynthia Sommers. I watched the trial in it's entirety on CTV. I would have voted her guilty if I were on the jury. It was only later, after trial that this additional tissue surfaced at the military hospital. Do not blame Dumanis or Deputy DA Gunn. The evidence they had pointed straight to Somers and they would have been negligant in not bringing forth the case.

Tamara


I saw your review of the ten worst prosecuting attorneys in the United States. Your article lists Bonnie Dumanis/ San Diego, California DA, as one of the ten. I too, nominate Bonnie Dumanis as one of the ten worst prosecutors in America. But, I would also like to nominate a San Diego County Deputy DA, for his part in applying lawless tactics in my criminal case. What I’ve learned about our Judicial System is this – prosecutors can do whatever they want, Judges do whatever prosecutors say, and public defenders simply don’t care!! I am proof that evidence is not required in order to convict people of crimes they never committed.

There is a LAW on the books in one of the STATES that basically says, "Some People just need killing", and certain forms of Euthanasia qualify in my eyes.

Prosecutors from around the country with extreme political affiliations connected to their communities, the Justice Department, and perhaps all the way to the White House have damaged the image of justice in America.

About Cynthia Somers.... Yes I do think what happened to her, and being accused of something she probably did not do is awful - but it's not they gave her the death penalty - Thank God. Second of all she was never in Prison (that I know of) She was being held at Las Colinas Detention Facility which if you've ever been there or worked there - you'd know it's nothing like Prison. Yes 2 years is a long time. I see it this way - it's not all on District Attorney Dumanis. It's not like she hates Military Wives and goes out to make false evidence to fit some conspired ideas and cover-ups. She goes by whatever information and or evidence is in front of her at the time. Beyond the scope - In the grander scheme of things this is how I see it. Cynthia Somers had been dealing with or rather running from the horrible grief of losing a spouse she loves .. As I see it She was going down the wrong path .. I know because I've been there before. I'm not saying that's any reason to put someone through what she was put through.. But I do know that in spite of all the bad or wrong that happens in this world - God can use it and turn it around for good. I believe Ms. Somers is doing well now- and she will be compensated for the wrong that was done to her.
I know Bonnie is human just like anyone else- and makes mistakes. It would relieve me very much to one day see justice done by all our wrongs to be made right. An apology can go a very long ways sometimes- but for a person in power of her position - an apology might not help anyways. She has to keep moving forward. No one ever gives her credit for any good she does. What does that say about this County anyways? Most of us are all criminals or want to be involved in criminal activities and don't like her because She won't put up with it?

Spiderman

@mary Jane Doe,
Praising a horrible DA and let her of the hook because she is human is simply pathtic. Bonnie is out of her league and should never hold any position that has power. She is incompatant and wastes millions to make her narsistic ego happy. she should be impeached and never be allowed to serve the public. she has broke more laws than she can enforce and would be better to serve in a country were they have no ACCOUNTABILITY for violating civil rights. Guess what, WE WONT PUT UP WITH HER AND HER DAYS ARE NUMBERED>
