Santa Clara County Judge Socrates Manoukian Influences Authorities to Harass those who Report Evidence of AbuseJune 1, 2013, 7:28 pm 23 comments in the last 730 days. comments
Santa Clara County Judge Socrates Manoukian Influences Authorities to Harass those who Report Evidence of Abuse.

FACT: Some Judges can and will commit crimes, the problem is exposing them and getting them prosecuted. When someone exposes a judge the first thing they do is attack the person who reports them. Police often side with the judge because they can’t be objective due to working under that judge. This allows unethical judges to commit crimes, abuse victims and stay immune to prosecution.

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.

Iran Ordered To Pay $920 Million to 1983 Beirut Marine Barracks Bombing VictimsMarch 2, 2018, 1:45 pm 6 comments in the last 730 days. comments
Iran Ordered To Pay $920 Million to 1983 Beirut Marine Barracks Bombing Victims.

The Beirut Marine Barracks bombing, which killed 241 American servicemembers and injured numerous others, was the deadliest state-sponsored terrorist attack against United States citizens before September 11, 2001. A judgment of $920 million has been obtained against the Iranian government on behalf of more than 80 family members of Marines/soldiers who were killed or injured in the 1983 bombing of the U.S. Marine Barracks in Beirut, Lebanon, as well as Marines/soldiers who were injured in the attack themselves.


Libya: Can We  Have the 'Lady Be Good' Back Now Please?December 13, 2011, 3:15 am 5 comments in the last 730 days. comments
Libya: Can We Have the 'Lady Be Good' Back Now Please?.

I don't think it's easy to take a single story from the pages of aviation history and call it the 'best' or 'most interesting' because the competition is fierce, but the doomed crew of the World War Two B24 Liberator 'Lady Be Good' ranks for the title if any do. The crew became hopelessly lost and because they were flying at night, they ultimately came to believe they were over the ocean, just about to run out of fuel, and this is what led to their decision to bail out.

Who Really Spat on Veterans During the Vietnam War?.

Americans overwhelmingly believe that U.S. combat veterans returning from Vietnam were spit on by anti-war protesters in airports. Many vets will tell you it happened, and others will tell you that they never saw anything close to it.

The Diane Downs' Case Was No Small SacrificeAugust 3, 2014, 1:00 am 4 comments in the last 730 days. comments
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.
