Did anyone get a load of Mope-rah's latest wagon load of horse manure?
- Why isn't Drew Peterson in jail? Given that Peterson has been named a suspect in the disappearance of his wife, Stacy Peterson, why is he still walking around enjoying his notoriety?
Um, a presumption of innocence? A lack of evidence with which to charge him for the crime? Maybe not actually committing any crime in the meantime? Any of these things ringing a bell in that empty head Mopey?
- ...I've never reported on a case in which someone deemed a suspect is free to come and go as he or she pleases. Unless that person has fled, usually the police find a way to get the person off the street.
Well, that speaks more to your inadequacies as a reporter than any failing on the part of the legal process. We have this thing called a Constitution, Mopey. And police have to follow it. We can't just throw it out the window on a whim, though you'd like to.
- I find that ironic, when comparing Peterson's case with the recent case of another man whose name has been linked with the disappearance and homicide of another Chicago area woman.
Irony is incongruity between what might be expected and what actually occurs. Let's see what you find ironic in this situation (we'll summarize here):
- Potts had a criminal background
- escaped FBI custody
- stopped for a malfunctioning taillight
- arrested/charged with misdemeanor battery
- arrested for violating an order of protection when he sent a fax to the child's mother
- resisted arrest and "struck a sheriff's deputy with his elbow"
- violated a different order of protection filed by his estranged wife
- missed court (because he was in jail) so the judge issued a no-bond warrant for Potts
- arrested by Maywood Police after posting $50,000 bail in DuPage County
So because Drew Peterson was a member of the community with no criminal history (but a rather creepy social life), he should be treated the same as some jagoff who...
- can't maintain a properly working automobile as required by state law;
- threatens and hits people;
- can't read or comprehend what "no contact" means in a court order not once, but TWICE;
- batters the police IN A COURTROOM during his hearing;
- can't behave between court dates (violation of bail bond restrictions).
It must be truly painful to go through life with as many self inflicted blind spots as Mope-rah seems to do. Either that or the lobotomy they performed to sever all the logic circuits in her head got most of the pain receptors, too.
