EXCLUSIVE: Diane Downs Never Held a Weapon, How Could She Have Shot Her Kids?.

It's hard to say exactly what convicted Diane Downs in the shooting of her children, a terrible event that played out on a dark night in 1983. If one word plays into the scenario over and over, it is "emotion" and that is indeed a raw, powerful determiner of guilt in many cases, sometimes appropriately, sometimes not.

Trump Continues his Anti-Immigrant Politics.

At the eleventh hour, Trump suspended the tariffs saying that Mexico had agreed to new and broader concessions to curb migration, which included deployment of its National Guard throughout Mexico, giving priority to its southern border, and an expansion of a program to allow asylum-seekers to remain in Mexico while their legal cases proceed. In the announcement of the tariff suspension, Trump failed to disclose that Mexico had already agreed to these “new and broader” concessions last December.

As the 48th anniversary of America’s saddest weekend approaches, Author Ed Haslam, DR MARY’S MONKEY, says it’s time to re-think our history. He's willing to explore that in interviews as the JFK Assassination date approaches on Nov. 22. “We know more about Lee Oswald today than ever before,” explains Haslam, whose groundbreaking book uncovered new information and witnesses about Oswald's final days in New Orleans.

There was a time, a long time in fact, when the best possible stateside duty a Marine could hope for was Marine Corps Air Station El Toro in Orange County.

Officer Charged in Violent Abuse of 4-Year Old Boy Will Remain Behind Bars (VIDEO).

Wednesday was a tough day for the family of a small boy who authorities say, suffered weeks of severe, traumatic abuse at the hands of a reserve police officer named Michael Abo. Abo and his lawyer appeared in court Wednesday at 3:00 p.m. in McMinnville at the Yamhill County Circuit Court in front of Judge Cynthia Easterday, seeking a reduction in the one million dollar bail amount set for Abo after his arrest on a pair of Measure 11 charges.


State Anti-Abortion LawsMay 17, 2019, 12:04 pm 2 comments in the last 180 days. comments
State Anti-Abortion Laws.

Alabama became the eleventh state to pass anti-abortion legislation. Now eleven of the 22 states with both a Republican governor and legislature have passed an anti-abortion law. I expect it to be eventually 22 of 22. The Republicans know or should know that these laws are unconstitutional under the Supreme Court’s earlier decision in Roe v. Wade.

The Diane Downs' Case Was No Small Sacrifice.

On May 19, 1983, Elizabeth Diane Downs and her three small children were shot on a country road near Springfield, Oregon. Her 7-year old daughter Cheryl died, but her 3-year old son Danny and her 8-year old daughter Christie survived. Within three weeks, Diane had lost custody of her remaining wounded children and had become the number one suspect in the eyes of the police department and District Attorney’s office. I came across some very interesting information about the Diane Downs case because Rule attended the trial and also wrote a book about the case called Small Sacrifices.
