The Campaign For DA

1.25.2016

Random Monday Morning Thoughts








  • Sports:That Denver/New England game was great there at the end. but I couldn't get over DeMarcus Ware not being blocked (ever) and Wade Phillips being on the sideline.


  • I almost watched all of Narcos on Netflix. Two  points: (1) TV is changing, and (2) Pablo Escobar is one fascinating character.


  • That show made me research Augusto Pinochet.


  • Mrs. LL: "I'm going to Sam's. Do you want anything?" Me: "I don't even know what is in a Sam's". Her:" It's like a Walmart with bulk items." Me (sarcastically) : "Get me a barrel of beans." The fact that she didn't bring home a barrel of beans out of spite is amazing.


  • I posted about a JFK auction and then in the mail I received an amazing catalog of sports auction memorabilia that ends at the same time on January 30th. Coincidence?


  • Bridgeport's Colin Jones is going to the Super Bowl. 


  • I finished Making a Murder and my head did explode: Especially in the last episode (spoiler alert): "In 2010, [the prosecutor] resigned from his position as Calumet County district attorney following a scandal involving sexually-charged text messages he sent to to a domestic abuse victim. Kratz was the prosecutor in the case against the victim’s ex-boyfriend." And told Mrs. LL after the last episode that my dream of retiring to the jungle may now go on hold because now I want to stay and fight. 


  • BagOfNothing emailed with this New Yorker article about Texas criminal justice corruption that was published last week. 


  • Why do you get sucked in when Donald Trump speaks? The Dallas Morning News explains and it is spot on. 


  • The Family Pups love to go to sleep with their heads on my laptop keyboard causing a cascade of crazy images to appear on the screen.


  • Rick Perry has endorsed Ted Cruz. That's a game changer!!!!!!!!! (Sarcasm.)


  • Sports (again): In the early game yesterday, a punt returner tried to field the punt on the run and fumbled it. It might have been 20 years ago, but there is an NFL film of Bill Parcells in practice yelling at a punt returner that you "must set your feet" before you catch it." I don't like the guy, but he is dead right.

    "Rick Perry has endorsed Ted Cruz. That's a game changer!!!!!!!!! (Sarcasm.)"

    Sort of like: The LGBT endorses Clinton (Now that's a game change!!!!!(Sarcasm.)
    George Clooney endorses Clinton (Now that's a game change!!!!!(Sarcasm.)
    The Labor Unions endorses Clinton (Now that's a game change!!!!!(Sarcasm.)
    Kanya West endorses Clinton (Now that's a game change!!!!!(Sarcasm.)

    etc., etc.,etc.

    Now that's idiotic.

    What you got a few issues to clean up?

    Fight what? Gonna bring respect to a DA's office? Sharen Wilson is doing that.

    Not fielding the ball on a punt is not a fumble, it's a muff - if the return man doesn't catch the ball cleanly he never had possession to begin with
    the muffed punt return was in the late game, sports genius. Carolina special teams man/Bridgeport's own Colin Jones very nearly recovered the ball

    Sports you overlooked: Decatur swim team killed it at Grapevine this weekend.

    8:43 Then prosecute him without fabricated evidence and coerced confessions. Give him a fair trial like we are guaranteed by the Constitution. I don't know when so many people quit caring about basic rights and started siding with corrupt government officials who will win at all cost, but America is getting so dumb it is scary.

    I think he is probably guilty as well but that doesn't mean you get to trample all over the Constitution to put him away.

    8:43 -

    Please contact law enforcement to report your first-hand knowledge of the events that happened. It would be quite helpful of you to do so, and clear all this up.

    Costco is the place to be. Not Sam's. Better quality merchandise, better prices, better selection. Trust me on this.

    2 or 3 years ago you could buy a barrel of Jack Daniel's at Sams Club. It cost nearly $10,000.

    FACT: The largest buyer of Jack Daniel's is the U.S. military. END OF FACT

    If Rick Perry's 6 supporters in his campaign switch over to Cruz could be the start of a landslide!!

    9:47 & 9:43 - The documentary leaves out important evidence against Avery.

    Anonymous said...

    Avery was railroaded the first time and then he murdered a girl after his release. Admittedly a strange plot twist, but true nevertheless.

    Decatur has a swim team?

    I have half of episode 9 and 10 left to watch of Making a Murderer and I can't make myself finish because my head will explode as well. What a set up, what a crock, I have never seen anything like it in my life. The "key" they found, the fact that...oh nevermind, the list is too long to finish.

    My money is on the bil and the old brother of Brendan. And the trooper calling in the check the tag----oh.my.goodness. Good ole boy railroading at its best.

    I feel so bad for his parents.

    Anonymous said...

    12:24 Which I have read since watching the documentary but it doesn't change the fact that Avery didn't receive a fair trial. The point is that even Steven Avery deserves to be treated equally. Just because he comes from a lower class doesn't mean he has less rights than you or I.

    I don't completely doubt his guilt, but any honest person has to admit some pretty egregious things went on during the investigation and trial. We owe it to ourselves and our forefathers to demand better from our elected officials. They don't get to do whatever just because they strongly suspect an individual of a crime.

    12:35 Decatur has a great swim team, just ask Planned Parenthood of Oklahoma!

    Barry said early on that the Avery case has got nothing on Texas criminal justice. It would be interesting after finishing the documentary if he still feels the same.

    Anonymous said...

    12:50 & 12:58 - Give him another trial. While you are feeling bad for Avery's parents, don't forget Halbach's.

    I swam halfway to rattlesnake island but turned around and swam back because I didn't think I could make it

    Sorry I offended your family but I don't blame you for sending your daughter north to keep her "ilness" on the down low. Most folks around here do the same.

    I never forget the victim, that is the reason it is important to get the right criminal and to do it the right way. Think of how many more women wouldn't have been victimized by Allen if they didn't falsely convict Avery of the Beernsten sexual assault. That likely set about the events that got Halbach killed as well.

    Obviously your daughter didn't make the team. Maybe if she were to put that box of ho ho's down....

    3:14 I touched a nerve, that is how I know I'm on to something. The funny thing is my original comment was simply a play on words (swimmers), you just overreacted. I'm not from Decatur, don't have a daughter and I think I unintentionally trolled you.
