    9 Year Old Begs to go Home

    I have not posted in a very long time. This case has bothered me since it started. I follow the updates via Facebook. I've not joined pages there. I initially bought into the foster parent version of how horrible the bio-dad was (was emotionally triggering many things from my own childhood.)...

    BBM -- And that is the difference between your approach and mine -- and the reason that discussion of this case is not possible between the sides -- IMO. Children are children. All circumstances surrounding them should be different & IMO handled w/kid gloves. This CHILD'S rights were violated...

    I am involved on a personal level, therefore this message board becomes personal to me. I have admitted to that before. It continues to be the same old drabble from both sides with nothing to gain by continuing to beat a dead horse. NO ONE is going to change their mind on this board or be...

    Geez -- I've avoided posting on this thread for so so so long for so many reasons... I'm just glad that everything has to be prefaced with "IMO" or "I think" or whatever disclaimers a poster chooses to use.... NONE posting here are experts in psychology/psychiastry -- yes, I realize some have...

    GUILTY NM - Trinity Rains, 9 mos, shot to death, Albuquerque, 1 Dec 2009

    haha.. I thought about the way I wrote that after I posted & was too tired to correct it. Yes, I was on my way to work & heard a recording of the call he made to 911

    Nope, we don't have the DP here anymore. I think the legislature just voted it out effective this past summer. I heard a recording of him calling 911 on the way to work this morning. He was saying in the call that as soon as he did it he knew it was the worst mistake of his life.... :(Ya...

    OBE, no no no, he is not meaning that. English is not his first language. This comment is not intended to imply that you or any other child likes abuse. Truly trust me on this. He doesn't post frequently on this board because of this possible kind of misunderstanding & may be shy to try to...

    Linda -- respectfully -- et all...... We have not seen the full results of the tests or the recommendations. We are only getting snippets and single sentence "quotes", and quotes from a judge who has now been removed because of his improperly discussing the case and biasing his opinion (IMO...

    GUILTY NM - Brittni Carlini, 20, brutally murdered, Albuquerque, 5 Nov 2009

    No, NM does not have the DP any more. I think our legislature just voted in the last session to eliminate it starting with any crimes committed from July forward of this year would not have the DP as an option for punishment. Something like that, anyway. I know a lot of people here have been...

    OBE, this is one post of yours on this case with which I will agree. I know, don't fall over from shock or anything. :rolleyes:

    You are ever the mediator, my friend. :cool: Aren't you supposed to be enjoying your anniversary, instead of mediating an internet blog where the two very opposing opinions will likely never come to terms with their differences of opinion???? Unless, of course, the "other" side comes to agree...

    I don't know what it opens to door to. I was just trying to be helpful without things getting all pi$$y. The fact remains that the there is not a public release of any of the evaluations. There is no (eta: public) diagnosis that he is a sociopathic/psycopathic pre-planning murderer who should...

    I don't think that sdn8tv has been back on this site since this interchange occurred. I can state that she is privy to some information that is not available via a publicly linked site & is not something that could be posted in any fashion for public review or analysis. I can not state why or...

    This child did NOT confess to murdering these men. He said he shot them to put them out of their misery after he found them already shot. Mom is still under a gag order, she can't say much whether she wants to or not. So much "evidence" is sealed, we -- none of us -- really know what the...
