cruel outrage

For those of us who have been faithfully standing by Jordan Brown through his tortuous three-year-long ordeal, Friday the 13th will be remembered as another cruel outrage against justice and decency.

Today Judge John Hodge ruled that Jordan is to be held delinquent in the February 20, 2009 murder of Kenzie Houk and her unborn baby son.

We had had inklings that the decision just might go this way. Court officials who observed the trial commented that the defense had won the case hands-down, but doubted that Judge John Hodge would have the backbone to buck the police, the Attorney General’s Office, Judge Dominick Motto, the Houks and their camp of supporters, all of whom have been saying all along: “Don’t bother me with the facts; my mind’s made up.”

It was, in fact, the Houk camp which initiated a malicious campaign of hate, vengeance, innuendo, and outright lies aimed at saddling an innocent child with responsibility for a tragedy that was largely of their own making.

Beginning just one day after the murders, the Houk family and friends gathered at the parents’ house and told The Associated Press that Kenzie had had problems in the past with Jordan. “There was an issue with jealousy. He told my son stuff,” said the Houk’s son-in-law Jason Kraner, a violent felon and street thug with ties to the then (and now discredited) county prosecutor John Bongivengo.

“He actually told my son that he wanted to do that to her,” Kraner claimed, and the Associated Press reported it. Combined with the illegal release of Jordan’s mug shot by a jail employee, the image of Jordan as a Pugsley Addams went viral in the media.

What no one in the media was interested in learning was that two months before, Kenzie herself had concluded that her nephew’s accusation that Jordan had threatened to “pop Kenzie and her daughters in the head” was a lie. She had questioned not only Jordan, but daughters Jenessa and Adelynn, and had ascertained that the story was a total fabrication. Even the expression of “popping” someone in the head was language Jordan wouldn’t have used. It was the kind of talk that went on in the Kraner household.

Kenzie and her mother had discussed this on the phone. They had fought about it. If there was any “jealousy” involved as the Houks have claimed, it was in the Houk household, not in Kenzie’s and Chris’.

Kenzie was going her own way. She was breaking away from a lifetime of poor choices and making a new life for herself and her daughters with a good man who truly loved her. “I have two daughters … and a WONDERFUL boyfriend I adore,” Kenzie wrote. “I finally found all I have been looking for. I am so BLESSED!!!!”

As subsequent events prove, it is far more likely that Debbie Houk was resentful and jealous of Chris because he was taking Kenzie and her granddaughters away from her own dominating influence. Debbie and Jason had a close relationship but, being on opposite sides of the law, Chris and Jason didn’t. Debbie and Jason believed what they wanted to believe because it suited their purposes.

It was clear from the start that Chris Brown had had nothing to do with the murders. He was at work, and there were lots of witnesses to confirm he was there around the time Kenzie and the baby were killed. So Jordan became a surrogate for their hate and jealousy, and a way to punish Chris.

Bongivengo believed what he wanted to believe, too. He was in the middle of a re-election bid that was going poorly, and prosecuting a little boy whom he could paint as a heartless, remorseless sociopath would be a headline grabber and possibly give his campaign a shot in the arm.

The cops have been sticking by their theory because to change course in the light of the exonerating state crime lab findings would be a career-ender for some of them.

Everybody has been using Jordan for their own selfish ends, including the killer. What kind of worthless coward would let a little kid, an innocent without motive, take the fall for him?

Despite today’s decision, this unholy conspiracy still hasn’t worked. There will be an appeal.

The physical evidence all disproves the implausible, knee-jerk theory concocted by the cops, whose barracks has a reputation in law enforcement circles as being strictly bush league. Half the police who testified on Wednesday lied on the stand. Unfortunately, the cops’ myopic dishonesty has allowed the killer to remain at large in the community and for valuable evidence that might have led to his apprehension to be destroyed, lost, and ignored. Unfortunately, the judge’s ruling coming as it does only affirms—albeit temporarily—those minds that, despite a paucity of evidence, were made up long ago.

So now the gloating begins and the hate fest resumes. A Facebook page organized by Houk supporters has taken to calling Jordan “Satan.” It’s cruel and wrong, but it’s what they want to believe.

Yesterday a Pennsylvania sculptor named George Shean, of Ellwood City PA (geojon2000@yahoo.com), sent me this lovely message: “I know…the TOOTHFAIRY did it…they fly…and don’t leave footprints…only 2 sets…NO black truck…lying scumbag and a shotgun shell found at the school bus stop…gun powder residue on blanket, shirt…murderer,,,and you brown…your a stinking liar…you have coached this kid…not to say anything…well when he’s 21…people will still KNOW he’s a fucking MURDERER.” This was the eleventh hateful e-mail I’ve received from this angry man since June of 2010. I tried explaining the true facts, but he wouldn’t listen. He believes what he wants to believe. I suppose he has his own reasons and demons.

Just now Joann, age 50, of Beaver Falls PA (jjacj@comcast.net) has sent this message: “Ahhh it won’t be long till the judge rules on this little baster and he going to spend the rest of his cock sucking childhood in jail. Good for the little mother fucker. hopefully chris that useless piece of shit will be the next to go to jail. chris how many times do you think gordan has taken it up the ass. Die all you mother fucking browns.” This “lady” really has a mouth, eh?

Yesterday and today I have been receiving threatening phone calls from someone who won’t identify himself, but who sounds just like a street thug on crutches.

“You got somepin’ to say to me?” he asked.

“Who is this?” No answer.

“You got somepin’ to say to me?”

“Who is this?” I asked. Still no answer.

“You got somepin’ to say to me?”


And then again this morning: “I’m gonna meet you,” he said.

“Who is this?” No answer.

“I’m gonna meet you soon.”

“Oh yeah? Where?” I asked.

“You’ll find out.”

“Whatever,” I said, and hung up.

There will be more harrassment to come.

Last night Jordan was in tears. He has no illusions about the Lawrence County judiciary. He knew his ordeal would not end today.

But he brightened up when Chris told him there would be an appeal. Jordan knows there will be justice outside of Lawrence County. He knows that we’ll never give up until justice is served.

Oh wow. The first donation for Jordan has just come in.

You’re not giving up, either.

    • April 13, 2012 at 3:42 pm

      At this point I can’t speculate. But like every other step in this case, it will take too long. Our only consolation is that, while Jordan is waiting for a fair trial before an unbiased court, he will at least be receiving appropriate services, including education, which have heretofore been lacking.

    I have always reserved judgment on Jordan Brown’s guilt or innocence, because I have never been privy to the evidence or facts of the case. So, regardless of today’s court ruling, Jordan is still a young man in need of our support, to help comfort him, to motivate him, and to keep him focused on a productive and happy future. That is why I have supported him, and that is why I will continue to support him, just as I support the other boys/young men whose lives we discuss on this blog.

      John,It would surprise you the things Judge John Hodge is capable of.He is one of the most corrupt judges that could ever be placed on the bench but the taxpayers keep voting him in.He oversees all of the Lawrence County Children and Youth cases and I can not even begin to tell you how many innocent parents he has helped steal children from.I don’t know if any of you recall the young lady that had her newborn taken from her because of the poppy seed bagel she ate and Jameson Hospital falsely accused her of being on drugs about a year and a half ago named Elizabeth Mort.Judge Hodge signed the order to remove that baby from that innocent woman and if not for the ACLU she would not have got that bay back.The year before he signed that order he also signed another order again for another woman to lose her newborn when Lawrence County Children and Youth made false allegations of drug usage and it took that woman 75 days to get her baby back because of the legal tricks Judge Hodge allowed them to use to hold up the release of her baby to her again while she was innocent.They all work together to snowball innocent people so that if it comes out they can all lie for each other and incidentally one of the caseworkers has a relative that is a state trooper at the same barracks that helps remove those children.Coincidence ???? Highly unlikely.

    They do not have appeals in the juvenile system I asked.

      This is still America. Any decision by a lower court judge can be appealed to a higher court. This is a fundamental principle of our American legal system, and a primary safeguard against judicial despotism. Whoever told you “they do not have appeals in the juvenile system” is seriously misinformed. In Jordan’s case his rights under the federal constitution have been violated, so his case can be appealed all the way up to the Supreme Court of the United States if necessary. All the corrupt officials in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania cannot prevent an appeal to the federal courts.

    Krastek makes a statement that “it’s too bad it had to take so long”–referring to Jordan being at the Erie center three years with no intervention. Someone needs to tell Krastek why on earth it took so long.

    First of all, Jordan was charged with LIFE WITHOUT PAROLE. Let us first understand that even if little Jordan picked up that gun that morning and had a brief thought that resulted in the death of the victims, he was a child. The charge of LWOP was initiated almost immediately. Who in the world, let alone an “innocent” and when I say “innocent” child, I mean, young, immature, and with a brain underdeveloped, that by nature, acts then responds, would EVER, EVER, want to go to jail for the rest of their lives. Mr. Krastek, you and your posse were more interested in the newspaper headlines than the welfare of the “innocence” that encompassed Jordan as an 11 year-old child. Guilty or not. Your charge, which is INSANE caused all this. YOU and the D.A. who wanted to make headlines caused all this. The mindset you have in Pennsylvania does not promote a child this young to ever put their trust in any type of justice. We all know what YOU would have done and what the child faced. It was ludicrous to say the least.

    Second, lets say you got Jordan to admit he did it and he admitted he did not mean to kill her but the gun went off, which by the way, is very possible considering his age, what would have happened then? Well, looking at the history in Pennsylvania the child would have faced life without parole because YOU people were only seeking headlines. The welfare of the child was at risk no matter what. Need I say “kids for cash” once more. Need I remind everyone Pennsylvania has the most juvenile lifers. Need I say Kimble. Need I say more. YOUR motive Mr. Krastek was “self-fulfilling”. Jordan stood a risk of never having freedom partly because he was raised primarily by his father and the state would have stereotyped this upbringing as being void of “motherly love”, which is ancient thinking and needs go out the window in this day and age. Also important to understand, what would the media have done had the child admitted he was guilty? We have already seen what they are capable of. They even so much as admitted the same crime “would not have caught the interest of the public had Jordan been 30 years-old”. We know the mentality here. No mercy for prepubescent children. HE WAS 11 YEARS OLD!!!

    Third, with the exception of a parent’s love for their child, it is hard for me to see the victim’s family so very ignorant. This family had NO love for him. It is obvious the victim’s mother has an over barring personality with little tack. If we had to ascertain why a young child like Jordan would be afraid of losing his father or was “jealous” as the victim’s family proclaimed, it is clear that they WERE in fact moving in, and moving him OUT. The victim did not even know how fathered her children. One can ascertain as an adult, with all the horrible talk from the victim’s family, all the show, the black bandanna gang escort, and high-tempered family members of with criminal records themselves, that a child could see the elephant in the room. If the victim’s family proclaims he was “jealous” it is because they know how they treated him.

    Though I am not surprised by the verdict, I am disappointed in it for the mere fact that Jordan very well may be innocent. If a court is not going to go by the facts, one has to ask, what is our justice system coming to? Krastek was not required to bring in his lead investigator or witness. Why? He knew he would lose. He did not bring in so much of what surrounded the initial indictment in the first place because he knew they would be cross-examined and he would lose. The fact is, there is no real proof of Jordan’s guilt, only subjective theories. It really would only take one person to open that door, walk in and shoot the victim, after the children left for school. Yet based on the verdict the Judge chose to go with plausibility. The truth is, if the ex-lover were charged, the facts would be the same and plausibility even greater. The truth is, if the judge freed Jordan due to the “lack of proof”, the state stood to take a lot of back-lash and possibly lose a lot of money in the wrongful charge in the first place. So here we are…..again.

    Finally, I stood by Jordan from the get go. I never knew if he was guilty or innocent. I only knew he was a child that needed support because of he was vulnerable. His father was right to stand up for him. I would do the same for my children. ANYONE that loves their children would protect and believe their child’s proclamation of innocence. After all this time, I feel that three years with no intervention required release. I feel that the way this case was handled from the get go, this child was abused by the system. Guilty or not, he was a child. At this point in time, I feel due to all the lost time and abuse the system portrayed by letting the child sit with no intervention, and seeing his father stand by him, willing to help him in anyway he can, that this shows something that tells me this child should have been released to him. The state failed to “treat” a child that they are saying now needs intervention. If this is the case, let his family bring him in therapy, work with an alternative plan. The system failed here, and Jordan has loved ones that are willing to help him. Let them! Or lose on appeal, because the facts do not convince me that he is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. Either way, I see a child that WILL overcome this and that will have a future, and no matter what, I will be supporting him emotionally and through prayer. Possibly even in person.

    I hope that Jordan’s family can put aside the cruel nature of the victim’s family and friends. There are people who understand how you feel. Your loss is great but this too shall pass. Focus on supporting each other and Jordan. God will turn things around in time. There is a purpose for everything under the sun.

      Dear Marie,

      I’m from the Netherlands and have a question. How is it possible that a prosecuter can hold back evidence, like the gun, the sheet and bullitshell. And why is the judge not interested in these items. Or cannot the judge ask for the items to be shown. Is it so that the prosecuter can present what he like so he can change on purpush the outcome of the trail. I mean everbody knows about the items, even the judge! And then the experts who did there story to the police. I prusume on paper in the casefile. What does the judge with these writings? Leave them out the case to?
      In my country all those writings and evidence are presented to the judge. He is the one who makes then a well informed rulling.


      • April 15, 2012 at 6:27 pm

        Nico,in Lawrence County they pretty much do what they want when it comes to the justice system and have never been held accountable for it.I have dealt with that county myself and the illegal things the authorities,cops,judges,courts and Children and Youth do in that county would scare the garbage out of you.What happened to Jordan is just one of the many situations that offer that proof

    • April 15, 2012 at 6:24 pm

      Awesome post Marie and the whole jest of Lawrence County has been and always will be to try to get somebody to admit guilt even when they did nothing.They do this all the time when that county knows the parent is innocent in Children and Youth cases and they try to get them to admit they did something they did not do.It makes their jobs easier and makes them look like heroes in the public’s eye this is why they try to verbally brow beat someone in to a confession.

    omg that judge, cops and the people thats been having cruel htred and not to mention assults at jordon and chris and some saying hes a child devil and a murder, well i say this to them FUU THATS SHOWING HATERED TO THE BRPOWNS JORDON AND CHRIS.

Ok lets blame those people even cops and judge see to it they be fired and they get behind bars.They never knew jordon and chris. So why poit all fingers to jordon. I tell u this anyone who destoys a kid like this needs to be taking behind the shed for a attitude adjustment. Guess there happy destoying jordon child ood teen hood and even when he becomes a adult, he may now be hardened. When i read this about jordon i wanted to trow this lap top im on, but what good would that do. Anyways that judge, prosecutor and cops and all the ones that is blaming jordon for a crime did not do, hoe they wont sleep at all and wont care if they be the one to die. Damn court systum corrupted people that deseves to be in hell. BUT IF THERE IS A CHANCE FOR A APPEAL THEN IT CHANGE SOME STUFF AND WITH GODS POWER JUSTICE WILL HAPPEN AFTER YEARS WASTED THOU IN PRISON, AND THEN JUDGE, PROSECUTOR, COPS AND THE ASSHOLE WHO STRIKED JORDON WILL BE A LAUGHING STOCK. If judge prosecutor cops and the men who threatened blamed chris and jordon too i don’t give a rats …. Ill stand my ground.

    It is hard to hear people talk so terribly to you. This goes to show you how very damaging the initial charge and publicity an 11 year old child and his family had to withstand. I hope that you do not pay let the evilness of some people take you down. They are nothing even worth reading.

    I think that the work you do for children is amazing. You are part of the change that WILL come one day. No child should even experience the cruelness the criminal system has in place. Everyone that ever made any change occur, never did it with the majority. That came later. People are very uneducated and plain old ugly. God knows your heart is good and no matter what, good comes from all this bad. The ugliness in the world that is trying to break our spirits will never win. We know our purpose, our mission, and it is a good seed that will take root one day.

    I do not believe there would be anything different with regard to Jordan’s case. I believe that God is navigating right now and I do not believe he is ever going to abandon Jordan, Chris, or the Brown family. I see him clearing the way for good things to come. The evil spirited, they will lose in the end.

    The verdict regarding this didnt surprise me. This case went on way to long and Judge Hodge’s mind was made up before he heard any evidence. I personally don’t think he ever had a chance I also feel this should not have be tried in Lawrence County. Judge Hodge lacks the backbone to stand up and say that the county has locked up an innocent child to many jobs and reputations were on the line.. There is so much circumstantial evidence and nothing directly tying him to anything. I think it was absurd that they allowed a witness for the prosecution to take the stand under oath who was drunk and high ~ I also feel the reason Jenessa Houk did not take the stand was because it would of benefited the defense not the prosecution…I could go on and on why I feel that Jordan Brown is innocent. I know an appeal is a lengthy process I just pray that the outcome is a just one and that justice will eventually be served. What sickens me the most is how the Houk family is profiting over the loss of their daughter and grandchild and how everything is a media frenzy. The money they are receiving is not being used in the mannor in which they exploited Jenessa and Adalyn for. I do understand that they want someone to be held accountable for their daughter and grandchild’s death but ruining the life of an innocent child and his family is not the answer. The Houk supporters truly do display an arrary of ignorance and inhumanity towards the Jordan and his family. Comments about Jordan’s sentence not being lengthy enough and that once released maybe this time he’ll shoot his father or grandmother truly shows their true character..

    I do applaud you for supporting Jordan and in life there will always be naysayers. I do hope that Chris Brown and his family can truly find closure in this difficult time.. There is a purpose for everything and God does work in mysterious ways..

    • April 15, 2012 at 6:34 pm

      Lynn,you are hitting the nail right on the head in your comment.I can’t say enough bad things about Hodge and his little cohorts of crime in that county.This man signs removals of children of innocent parents and places them in homes where they are molested,abused and have all kinds of horrors bestowed on them that was not happening in their own homes.I don’t know if you read about the case about a year and a half ago of the newborn he signed removal papers to have the 3 day old removed from an innocent mothers home but if the ACLU did not become involved that woman would have never got her baby back,a year before that he did the same thing to another new mother and let the system steal the baby for 75 days while she had to fight the red tape from that county holding things up.This is corruption at the highest level and the Governor of this state should hold an independent investigation in to all of his cases and also look in to the state police,prosecutors and Children and Youth in that county and I will guarantee there would be alot of criminal cases being tried in that county concerning that.

        Sadly Diana I doubt Governor Tom Corbett will do nothing about it. He was the Attorney General when an innocent 11 year old was charged as an adult and faced LWOP for a crime he did NOT commit, and he agreed with it. I believe too after seeing this show trial that there are not any ethical jurists in Pennsylvania. More than probably if you want to see any justice for Jordan in that corrupt pennsilvania it should have to be appealed in the end to the federal courts for redress, as very well Frank says.

  13. April 14, 2012 at 12:11 am

    I was sickened and saddened to hear the news today. I had figured as much and expected this result because how on earth could they ever announce Jordan was innocent all along. The authority figures involved in this case are locked into their own web lies and deceipt.

    I have to admit the last couple of days I had allowed myself to allow a glimmer of hope shine through my skepticism to the point I was beginning to think the judge might actually do the right thing even though I knew it was against the odds.

    This case was not judged on the facts but instead was fully based on protecting careers.

    I do not know this society / country I live in. I just can’t seem to get my barings anymore when I look at my country.

    Unfortunately, this result falls just after an Apache County / St. Johns, AZ probation officer and prosecutor Michael Whiting has petitioned the court to violate now 12 yr old CR who was only 8 years old at the time he was charged as an adult. I had predicted the authority figures were going to start putting pressure on CR in attempts for backlash to have an excuse to violate his probation. I predicted this was going to happen when CR turned 12 or 13 yrs old. I’m sad to say I was right. The violation of probation stands to nulify the plea deal CR signed at only age 9 yrs old.

    The week after CR signed the plea deal, Jordan was arrested.

    The two cases are so extremely similar one could in effect exchange one boy’s name for the other and you’d seemingly have nearly the same case.

    Chris and Jordan, I want to send my very best. I know Friday was a very disappointing day but please know and remember you have many people who care about you very much and will not stop advocating for you. We believe in you both and want to do whatever we can to help get Jordan exhonerated. Please, stay strong as we will be fighting for justice with you.

    Dan, I’m sorry to hear about the threats. You are doing the right thing by spreading the word about what goes on in our ‘court system’. You are doing the right thing by standing by these kids, either guilt or innocent.

    We are rolling up our sleeves. We’re ready to support Jordan, his father and his family.

    I am outraged but not surprised by Judge Hodge’s decision in this case. He reinds me so much of Judge Roland Freisler and his People’s Court in Nazi Germany. Karma is a bitch, and Hodge will get what’s coming to him. Meanwhile, this case will be an acid test of whether the proposition of “liberty and justice for all” is indeed a fundamental principle of the American republic or just another crock of bovine feces. It is my firm belief that true justice for Jordan Brown and Kenzi Houk will only come with federal intervention in this matter. I simply have no confidence in the ability or willingness of the Pennsylvania judicial system to do what is right and just.

    Jordan is now found delinquent! Did he lose? I still feel bad about Jordan’s situation, but there is nothing that we can do in the moment, I hope they will appeal the judge’s decision!
    In my opinion he is convicted only on probably cause, that he could have done it, so far I know there is no hard proving evidence that Jordan does it. Yes we lose, Jordan loose and will be in detention for some more time of his youth. Morality Jordan wins! Because he doesn’t confess to a crime he doesn’t do. He stood to his innocence in this case through all the last 3 years. He could have confessed to the crime to get his case transferred to juvenile court two years ago when the DA offered it – confess and we will transfer you to juvenile court- that was the message the DA sent to Jordan!
    He didn’t confess because he didn’t do the crime, so he is the moral winner.
    I believe that no child can hide such a crime under pressure for 3 long years if a child does such a crime. There are nightmares, there are a lot of psychological thing’s to address if he really does it.I’m sure he would have told about it to someone else what he has done if he does it.

    I can’t imagine how he feels now, but I think he needs our support more than ever before now!
    Let him and his families know that we still stand behind them.

    George Shean and his compatriots’ comments on Jordan`s case are living proof that soulless evil exist. I recently watched a show on the Bosnian war and came away asking myself how can men massacre children as they did there and as the Nazis did. All you have to do is look at the hateful comments made to Dan about this case and it`s easy to see that these cold blooded fiends are always amongst us just waiting to get some power. Civilized people must resist them by the pen or the sword when need be.

      Amen to that, Jeff! Monsters exist, and live among us. Whatever ignorance, injury, indoctrination, malice that made them into monsters we can only guess. I understand WHY the Nazis and the criminal elements in Bosnia did what they did; what I don’t understand is HOW they could bring themselves to a soulless amoral level to do it. The malicious commenators above beg both questions: why and how? “Cold blooded fiends” indeed, my friends. Yes, they must be resisted by all necessary means–by the pen when possible, by the sword when forced to that measure.

    Dear Nico,

    From what I am gathering from newspaper articles the judge found it plausible that Jordan committed the crime. The prosecutor indicated that no one knew where the victim lived or could have used a gun and ammo that was similar to the one they say killed the victim. This infers that in today’s day in age, when I can speak to you Nico
    from the Netherlands, face to face on a computer, that a person who would want to kill another person, could never find out where they lived. It also infers that there are no other guns or bullets that could have been used and no way tree trimmers could have innocently damaged the crime scene while attending to the young child that apparently ran to them for help.

    What I am guessing happened here is that because of Jordan’s young age and the victim’s initial claims of him being “jealous” that the forethought of the judge was “Jordan committed the crime”. The prosecutor, I am guessing, brought in as little as he could to ensure no cross-examination occurred, in which he would have stood to be quite embarrassed and won on “probability”.

    This is scary because leaving out so much evidence tells me that they were concerned that bringing it in could have brought forth a different outcome. One has to question the ethical boundaries in that method.

    In criminal law, William Blackstone, an English jurist proclaimed, “It is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer”.

    I think when a child is so young like Jordan, we have to be extremely cautious because of their vulnerability. I pray for Jordan and his family, no matter what happened and I have a great deal of compassion for the victim’s, and their family, though I do not agree with their behaviors. I would need more proof, especially because of his age.

    Hey, I hope no one is offended that I allowed Steve Morgan’s comment quoting jjacj to post. The language is so crude and insulting, I would never allow such a post under normal circumstances… but since it’s a quote, I think it is instructive to see how angry ill-educated, inarticulate people can be if they don’t possess a vocabulary sufficient to express themselves. Jjacj sounds like a guy, but the e-mail traces back to someone named Joann in Beaver Falls PA. Maybe jjacj is Joann’s husband or boyfriend, or maybe jjacj is the “lady” herself. Either way, this is a cowardly, hate-obsessed person who’s opinion can be discounted to near-zero value.

    Dear Nico,

    I too wonder why the judge would not request those “writing” and “evidence” when he is considering the fate of a child. You would think a juvenile judge would fine tooth every aspect of the initial charge, for to extra security in his determination. If not for his security, for all those in the courtroom to understand clearly how he can make such a determination. That would eliminate anyone confusing political motives but instead it left it as “probable”.

    It funny to see that picture of Mr. Shean. He looks so intelligent, and is an artist, a sculptor. It’s strange how his crudeness can change his appearance. He now looks like a sick pedophile. My mind soars and I am picturing him sculpting children. I feel queasy looking at him.

      Celine, you are reading that in from your own imagination/intuition. I have made no such implications, nor do I have any information about his sexual preferences or perversions. All I know is that he is a very angry and possibly sick individual. I pity him.

    There are so many violations in Jordan’s case…



    http://www.jlc.org/legal-docket/yarborough-v-alvarado …I am wondering if this one explains why the prosecution did not bring in the key “informational” interrogator. Is this so the appeal cannot determine the judge ruled on a illegal interrogation (possibly yet to come)….If so, how can that be ignored anyway. It was the prime reason Jordan was suspect. ?

    I am not saying Mr. Shean is one, just that his entire image was distorted in my mind because of his crudeness.

    It is a good eye-opener. We all need to tame the anger, it really is mean and scary .

    This makes me wanna cry. Sorry, but I have been out of the loup for a while and, I’m just now trying to catch up with this case. I believe that Jordan is innocent, but even if he was guilty, would he deserve this kind of hatred? A child who was 11 years old at the time of the crime? When ever a child that young is guilty of a serious offence, there’s usually several adults in the background who really should carry the weight of the “guilty” virdict: parents, teachers, social workers… A child who gets the love and attention he or she deserves doesn’t do such a thing. It’s as simple as that. I hope with all my heart that the appeal brings justice for Jordan.

    You could certainly see your expertise in the work you write.
    The sector hopes for more passionate writers such as you who aren’t afraid to mention how they believe. Always go after your heart.
