    OR - Child killer Diane Downs up for parole - again

    SALEM -- Oregon's most notorious child murderer, Elizabeth Diane Downs, will have a second parole hearing on Dec. 10.

    The hearing will be at Chemeketa Community College via video link. Downs is now at an out-of-state prison.

    Please, Oregon -- keep this sociopath locked up!!

    IMO, if Diane ever got out, she'd be up to her old games of trying to get what she wants...there's enough cold-hearted narcissists on the street already- we don't need another one with no conscience!

    The good thing is that she is past child bearing age so she can't have any more kids to kill but I really don't think they will give her parole. She still denies what she did and continues to blame the "shaggy hair stranger". She will die in prison, where she belongs.

    ITA, DairyGirl...the parole board wants the person to admit to their actions and not blame a fictious person. She is where she belongs..JMHO

    I remember Oprah doing interviews and just recently had one of the daughters on her show...

    Becky's Relationship with Her Biological Mom, Diane Downs
    http://www.oprah.com/oprahshow/Becky...-Downs-Video_1


    In1988, Oprah interviewed Diane Downs via satellite from prison after she was convicted of shooting her three children at point-blank range. Diane explains why she got pregnant during her infamous trial. More from this show

    Diane Downs needs to stay in prison! She took the lives of the ones that trusted her most, that needed her so that she could have a better life for herself.

    So damn it Oregon let her live it..right where she is. IMO

    Convicted Oregon child killer Diane Downs says she won’t participate in a parole hearing set for Friday, so the hearing will proceed without her.

    Downs made the same threat in 2008 when she was first eligible for release but then took part.

    This hearing will take place in Salem, but Downs can testify via video from Chowchilla, Calif., where she is imprisoned at the Valley State Prison for Women.

    “We are having a hearing with or without Miss Downs,” said Jeremiah Stromberg, executive director of the Oregon Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision.
    ....................................
    Gardner is urging the board to refuse parole for Downs again and suspend any further parole consideration for a decade.

    lifetime.

    SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Convicted child killer Diane Downs has been denied parole and must wait 10 years for her next hearing after the state parole board ruled she has a "mental or emotional" condition that makes her a threat to society.
    ...................
    Downs, 55, was first denied parole in December 2008, after serving nearly 25 years, but had the right to a new hearing two years later.

    This time, a new law that took effect this year allowed the state parole board to deny Downs another hearing for 10 years after rejecting her second parole request on Friday, The Oregonian reported.

    And if you want real insight to the hearing, check out today's tweets from KVAL - Molly Blancett is the reporter who was there - here's a few

    Downs "I still maintain my innocence"

    Downs explaining how a man flagged her down in May 1983 and then started shooting her kids.

    Downs says she thinks the prosecutor doubts Downs shot her kids

    Downs: I think -- were there red flags? ... I'm post-menopausal so I won't ever be on a dark road with my kids again.

    Downs: Prison is one heck of an anger management class

    Board asked Downs why she cried about her parents but showed no emotion when talking abt her kids. Says "All the pain I experienced is gone"

    This is so typical of her and all the other sociopaths in these cases that we follow!

    Once they get rid of their "problem", the pain is GONE, isn't it?
