District Attorney Refuses to Sign Indictment
Office of District Attorney refusing to issue arrest warrants, complaining about the police, and demanding "more" evidence.
Is this due to cowardice?
In the case of Alex Hunter, this was obvious. He fell over himself to appear to be a peer of the Ramsey attorneys, and there was no way he was going to go up in a public courtroom against them. He and his team were those who made far less money than the high paid, very talented Ramsey team. Money draws away the talent into the private sector.
In the case of Hunter, he went further than most frightened district attorneys: he actually shared evidence with the Ramsey lawyers before discovery was mandated. He leaked out information, embarrassed and maligned the police, and even hired his own investigator to disprove what the police had learned, and that which Statement Analysis agrees: That Jonbenet died at the hands of her parents.
Statement Analysis showed it and the Grand Jury, in spite of not being able to question or hear from the police who investigated the case, knew it too.
A district attorney has, like the attorney general, a lot of assistants. These are often young attorneys, just starting out, who, if a good showing is made in court, will be drawn out to the private sector to make good money. Left behind is often the less talented, who accept far less pay, and who may fear going up in court against their former colleagues who have been recognized as "the best and brightest."
This leaves those clamoring for justice frustrated.
It is also why we see so many deals made even when the victims' families demand justice.
One must wonder if this was the case of Baby Lisa.
Baby Lisa case was not difficult to discern, as her mother, Deborah Bradley, spoke out early and often, and showed clear deception. Cadaver dog hits, behavioral analysis and the re-enactment of an alleged kidnapping all showed that Baby Lisa died inside the home of the mother. Police spoke with bravado before the cameras and appeared to be close to resolving the case.
In came Joe Tacopina and out went the case.
The next thing we heard was that Tacopina was being shared evidence by the FBI.
How could this be?
What about Hailey Dunn? Was there ever a more open and shut case against mom and boyfriend?
Drugs, child pornography and violence led the town's manager to call upon a simple math formula, yet, even with 109,000 deviant images, there has been no arrest.
It doesn't seem possible.
In Maine, a violent young man involved in the drug world bristles against having to pay child support of his toddler, of whom has been a victim of an increase in violence against her, culminating in a broken arm. He purchased a life insurance policy against her and expressed 'concern' that someone might take her, telegraphing his plans. Surprise, surprise, against all odds, she is kidnapped?
He refused to negotiate with the kidnapper, a sure sign of guilt, but when finally convinced to speak out, like others with guilty knowledge, we saw the guilt and knew that Baby Ayla had met her demise in the basement of his home. We knew this before we learned from police about her blood being spilled.
Yet, there is still no arrest.
One might wonder what would have happened in these cases if Joe Tacopina or the Ramsey attorneys had been paid to prosecute these cases.
At Thanksgiving time, 13 year old Dylan Redwine went missing, and his father, Mark Redwine, refused to speak out, just like Justin DiPietro or Sergio and Becky Celis, which raised suspicion. When he did finally speak out, just like DiPietro and Celis, we knew.
We knew why he, like the giggling Sergio Celis, chose to be silent at first.
Will prosecutors exercise strength and courage in the case of Dylan Redwine?
