I am getting so freaking sick and tired of hearing from the worthless
Jurors and Barbara's 'family.' These Jurors, people that were either
to dumb to get out of Jury Duty or too worthless, are just fearful
that their 15 minutes of fame is fading away. Furthermore, what about
Barbara's daughters. Tracy and Michelle had to grow up without their
mother being around. Now, with the gleeful assistance of their
mother's 'family', they have lost their father. Where is Justice for
them? It certainly did not exist 18 years ago, when Eric Smith's
father could have cared less. His department did not even conduct the
most simple of investigations. Why? Why were legitimate tips and
possible leads ignored by Eric Smith's father and his detectives? That
is what should be looked into. Macomb County should know why this was
allowed to occur. Damn it, this gets my rockets firing! Eric Smith
is bastardizing everything I have held dear in terms of the Judicial
System. The worst part is, I can not do a damn thing about it, other
than write my frustrations out. They want to tag Michael as "The
Comic Book Killer." Maybe someone should explain "With Great Power
Comes Great Responsibility" to Eric Smith and Steve Kaplan.
