Dear Sherry, thanks for your reply.  My side of the story is just as an observer.  My response is to the writer who seemed convinced she was railroaded. This writer took the side of the woman who was apathetic at  the hospital, concerned about herself, and a  pathological liar, proven by more than one account.  The writer attacks the man who worked on the case, and  eventually adopted her children, and seemed to have a  genuine interest in their well-being. The writer gives very little evidence in questioning motives, but  seemed skeptical on only one side of the coin. There are bad police, there are vendettas, but come on, be real. Pick your battles, there are plenty of people unjustly put in prison, go find one of them. 
 
People need due process, it is a pillar of just society that we can live free of harassment and strong-arm tactics from the law. Every criminal needs  a sound defense, yet there are people who seem to take  the side of the criminal without thought of the victim  or the crime. Whenever a person defends and tries to exonerate a guilty person, specifically, a person whose guilt is not in doubt, they do a disservice to society. Defend child abuse victims, rape victims, look to help those who have lost loved ones to crime,  but please do not help anyone who, in the view of common sense, is obviously guilty. I'm no expert, I did not sit on the Diane Downs jury, but for crying out loud, she has not shown herself to be a decent percent. She has shown herself as selfish, uncaring, and a pathological liar. Now did she commit the crime? I'm not qualified to say, but I am content to let the decision rest with twelve jurors and not question them. And I'm a skeptical person, yet I choose to place my skepticism where common sense dictates. I can only believe the writer who defends Diane Downs carries extreme prejudice regarding the case.

Please give me your side and I will post it along side of what others have provided in this case. It  is not my intention to be one-sided but to seek the  truth. 
 
Blessings,

You are not helping me or my wife or my children. We are all against saving the innocent, and not unjustly convicting people, but to see and defend one side of the argument, in cases such as Diane Downs, does not help anyone. Your cause is neither good nor bad, it is amoral, you are right to follow it, but in your giving comfort to sick criminals, you take from victims and people in society who do not wish to be victims.  Good  for you.
