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.


Santa Clara County Judge Socrates Manoukian Influences Authorities to Harass those who Report Evidence of AbuseJune 1, 2013, 7:28 pm 12 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.

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.


Libya: Can We  Have the 'Lady Be Good' Back Now Please?December 13, 2011, 3:15 am 8 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.


The Diane Downs' Case Was No Small SacrificeAugust 3, 2014, 1:00 am 5 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.

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.


Veterans Kept in the Dark Over Chemical ExposureNovember 1, 2010, 10:18 pm 4 comments in the last 730 days. comments
Veterans Kept in the Dark Over Chemical Exposure.

DOD is the biggest owner of EPA Superfund sites. The contaminants and health effects of exposure are published on the EPA Superfund website. A simple website hyperlink to military installations on the National Priority List (EPA Superfund), identifying the contaminants and health effects can save lives, but no one seems interested in setting up this hyperlink.
