The Campaign For DA


Uh Oh

CNN Breaking News: "The confession of a man charged with kidnapping, raping and killing 9-year-old Jessica Lunsford isn't admissible in court, but the discovery of her body can be used as evidence, a judge ruled today. John Evander Couey, a 47-year-old convicted sex offender, gave the confession to detectives, but also told them that he wanted to consult a lawyer. He wasn't given the opportunity to do so."

I would go into a "rules have to be followed" or "the 5th amendment is there to protect us", but I suspect 99% of you don't want to hear that right now.

It chaps my ass when law enforcement gets too cocky to not 'follow the rules/laws'. It's because of their big/tough/above the law mentality that the guilty go free. I think these guys ought to be held accountable when they screw up - after all that is their JOB!!!

The rules are very simple to follow. Those guys should be fired or fried.

Let me add one more vote of agreement with the above 3 - the cops are supposed to enforce the las AND follow the rules.

What's really funny is nobody's ass is chapped when this convicted sex offender is not behind bars for life because some liberal judge did not impose the full extent of the law. Why was he out to begin with? I guess if the law had been followed, the same judge would have given him a slap on the wrist a second time. Have none of you never made a mistake on your job? If you did, were you fired or fried. I don't think so.

Some folks think the law is God.

And some folks who follow the rules of law think they are God.

Until they are on the receiving end.

And a sex offender kills one of their children.

Yeah Reagan, why was he out to begin with?

We gotta protect these folks, so they can come after more children.

My God, how sick is that?

Ok if I am on this jury NO WAY can I just ignore that his confessed but it doesnt count because the cops screwed up.

I agree with Reagan he should not have been out at all and someone WAY before the cops screwed up.

That poor innocent little girl is dead and they are so concerned with a KILLERS rights? How screwed up is that? I understand that we have to protect our rights, I really do, but honestly the victims are victimized twice in the court system anymore.

good points miz. gina - and I have little respect for a lawyer that would DEFEND a child molester.

Don't care if he/she is court appointed or not.

Yep, it's the court system and that part just......

Since when do "convicted sex offenders" who have confessed to killing a child have ANY legal rights?

Give us stricter laws pertaining to these folks and more lawyers and judges who will make their lives so miserable on this earth, they will beg for death.

Yeah Barry...your right, most people don't want to hear it. More stupid cops messing shit up. Can we train them better or perhaps monitor them? As middle men/women the police just have to do a better job.
