Knox I appreciate your thoughts on this, and I actually do understand why people feel this way. For the most part, I feel this way about a lot of the adults in Hailey's life, too, yet even with those adults, look at what Hailey was becoming. She did not seen to going in a downward direction, but the opposite. Also, as closely as I have followed this case, I still have many, many questions about basic facts, which were either screwed up by LE, changed by many family members, misreported over and over by local media and even national media, and, at times made up by a blogger, who became popular with this case, and whose misrepresentations and vulgarity have absolutely and alarmingly become fact today. I am not able, with the unprofessional "job" LE did in the beginning, the most important time of an investigation, when later, even the Texas Rangers were calling Hailey a runaway (against the objections of BJD), to decide that one or two people are guilty of a heinous crime without seeing what the evidence is, besides a lifestyle that many don't like or approve of. There has to be more than that for me to feel I can condemn a person for murdering another, either in my mind or writing on a public page. I want to see some evidence, any evidence, over not liking a person's looks, demeanor, sex life, dressing style, speaking style, and, etc. How many times have we seen, in recent years, people we know are murderers walk free, even with mountains of evidence against them, because of looks, connections, money, weird charisma, something inexpressible, but powerful? Sometimes, I think what happened in this case, besides a p@* poor investigation, was that some of the main players were not particularly likable and others were more likable, and the ones who were, were trusted, the others were not. ______________________________________________________________ These are my opinions only, and my postings are only to be quoted on Websleuths.
