Miscarridges of Justice
Posted in the Asheville Forum

These convitions should have never been set aside. The harmless error rule is a good rule and I wouldn't give you 10 cents for a alibi defense they are always perjurred. These criminals being freed and back on the streets is miscarridges of justice. Are they no finallity in convitions nowadays? What a scandle!
"In Suffolk County, New York, a detective destroyed his original notes and dictaphone recordings in a rape investigation because the victim's "times were off." The courts upheld the guilty verdict-even though the convicted man had tried to mount an alibi defense based on the time of the incident. The appellate judges reasoned that the victim had made a very strong identification of the defendant. The result would have been the same, the judges decided, even if the detective had not destroyed his notes. Therefore, destruction of the notes and tape was
"harmless error." Harmless to everyone except the defendant. He was
proved innocent and released; his alibi was true; none of those who
had altered records to change the time of the crime was punished.
"The victims of a rapist at a mall in West Virginia were secretly
hypnotized to enhance their recollections of the attacker's face.
Hypnosis of witnesses is so dangerously suggestive that the practice
is forbidden in many states, but the lawyers for Glen Dale Woodall
were never even told that it had taken place. Harmless error, said the
court. Woodall was sentenced to two life terms without parole, plus
335 years to be served after the life sentence. This innocent man
served four years.
"In Oklahoma, a Tulsa prosecutor didn't bother to mention until the
eve of Tim Durham's trial that a second child had been attacked in a crime very similar to the one Durham was charged with. That other
child didn't pick Durham out of a lineup, so there was no sense
letting his defense know about it. Harmless error, said the state's
higher courts. Durham, an innocent man, was sentenced to 3,220 years."
---- from Scheck, Neufeld, and Dwyer,_Actual Innocence,_ "Broken
Oaths." p. 172 et seq.

Allowing Larry Smith to practice law, but it didn't last long. He got the boot when he got caught cheating on his taxes!

Then besides that when Larry Smith was practicing law I was in Maine doing time for drunk driving, deadbeat daddery, and putting my wife in the hospital with my cowardly fists.

Is that the best you, got Wawwy Smiff?

Hey Wawwy, why don't you tell us about you being arrested for molesting Taber Hyde?
#11 Jul 5, 2013
Pathological liar Willard Hartsock, why don't you? If it had occurred there would be a record of it. All you have is lying and malicious libel, while the truth damns you:
Arrest records are easy to find and republish, such as this one:
"...Hartsock "hit [his wife] with his hands" and ... she "had to go to the hospital because of the injuries she received."

Tell us Larry Smith why you were banned from the Young Eagles Program?
Word is you liked touching pee pee's!
#13 Jul 5, 2013
But Willard Hartsock sure does have an obsession with it. Is that your fantasy life, Willard? People who talk about pe do phil ia all the time are definitely sexual deviates -- subjects in clinical studies of abnormal psychology. So you pegged the meter when you were tested for pederasty. Such a chancre sore on WNC you are. Why don't you go back to Maine where you were hatched.
Dexter Morgan, here's another target for your work clearing away the arch-criminal filth of society. 2521 Old Fort Sugar Hill Rd. Works Thyssenkrupp, Charlotte, NC.
Hey, Willard, you regretting just a little calling Cullen and threatening him? How is that criminal warrant for telephone harassment working for you? HUH? LOL! Did you squeal like a pig again like you did when the LEO's you insulted grabbed you on Chimney Rock, cuffed you from behind, and slammed your ugly carcass into the back of a cruiser? I can hear it now.....
Weeeeeeeeee! Weeeeeeee! Weeeeeeee! <S P L A T !>

Does this mean Willard gets to face Cullen in Court?
#15 Jul 5, 2013
I say have a duel and hopefully both will fire a shot and both will have a bullets enter there heads at the same moment and we will be rid of two cockroaches. Let us vote on the duel.

Wawwy won't show.

It would be a tribute to Charles Darwin for you to be returned to dust by a bullet. And it would rid us of just one more idiot who can't read or write.
