Article on Inside Edition website about interview with Nancy Garrido's brothers, David and Rey Bocanegra:
David told McInerney about his last phone conversation with his sister three years ago.
"When I was talking to her and she was answering back to me, it was Phillip telling her what to say."
They don't need to have a trial for PG because he can be sent away forever on the parole violation alone. Also, PG can be convicted on two statutory rape charges without Jaycee testifying at all, since the DNA of the children will provide irrefutable proof of the states case.
I believe that the accused in this country have a right to a trial.
I think the Garrido's home was a result of mental illness/OCD, not necessarily not enough time for housecleaning.

Please help locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff and bring them home.
is we don't know the climax yet --- what do "Alissa" and her 2 think of
this bizarre arrangement for growing up?
The two points that struck me about PG's attitude as a caring father were:
1) his predatory violence stopped
2) he's been addressing the issue of what will Starlet and Angel do when
they grow up? I think he's losing his marbles though: the girls look evasive in
public as bystanders steer around a "God's Desire" soapbox preacher. And he
can't keep the Garrido's secrecy act together anymore, blowing its cover.
1) Do we really know for sure that his predatory violence stopped?
2) I'm not sure what you're referring to about his "addressing the issue of" what the girls will do when they grow up. Not saying it's not true, just saying I'm not sure where that info came from. Losing one's marbles is not evidence of one's "attitude as a caring father" ...
Where and to whom has PG addressed the issue of what the two younger girls will do when they grow up? I haven't heard this, but have realized that he could never let them leave home.

My definition of "caring parent" apparently differs greatly from others'. To me, a "caring parent" is a term which will never ever be synonymous with someone whose parenthood occurred because they raped a little girl. You may not feel comfortable taking the leap to say "that he was a monster as far as the kids were concerned," but I am comfortable taking that leap. Regardless of whether or not he abused them in an outward way, they were abused, neglected, and/or mistreated by him from the moment of their violent, illegal, and non-consensual conceptions. Taking them on a few outings years later doesn't really balance that out for me.
BTK was a monster and had kids who liked him, so that's nothing new. PG thought he owned the girls and was paranoid or he'd never have said that he slept with them since they were born. He knew he could never allow them real freedom or to ever have their own lives. They've never been seen anywhere normal (including that alleged birthday party thrown by his buddy) or without him that I've heard of. They were forced to participate in his religious psychosis and rantings, hauled around to junk yards, barber shops, and humiliated even though they might not have realized it. He was in no way caring and they didn't have much of a life at all. From the sound of some reports, they didn't even have a good diet or much variety either.

I didn't see anything really different or unknown in the article, but the bros. do say that Nancy's defense attorney has told them she has started cooperating with LE now. Of course that is from a defense attorney and with no idea of the level of cooperation. Still I do hope she is talking.
^^Doesn't matter, it was their relationship, not yours, the level of caring and affection would be defined by them, not you.
Be that as it may, you are still talking from your perspective and not theirs, which is what I was talking about.
If ALL you've known is a sick, perverted father who feels the strange and disturbing need to SLEEP with you in his arms every night
If ALL you've ever known is not to know the horrible truth of your parentage, and to be essentially LIED to every day about that truth
If ALL you've ever known is to be largely deprived of an education
If ALL you've ever known is to live in an uninhabitable house and backyard tents
I suppose you'd think it was normal. I suppose you'd THINK that this perversion was LOVE. But we KNOW that this is not right. What was being done to those girls every day, all day, on a day to day basis, is essentially a crime, and children have been taken away by CPS for far, far less.
