Gosh, if ever I have witnessed a lynch mob in action its here in these letters. No one here has seen all the evidence and yet such a rush to judgement! So much for the innocent until proven guilty maxim of the law. McLish may be no saint but remember both the woman who accused him of rape and the murdered woman were no angels either. Its sad that life has been lost and so many destroyed. Its sadder that a community has rushed so quickly to assume guilt when the evidence has not yet been presented in court. And the cop (See Daisy Mae's note above) who tells his neighbors about the investigation should be fired for disclosing the evidence being gathered by the prosecuting DA.

Let Michael McClish have his day in court. Let the jury decide on the evidence presented and then perhaps the time for judgement both in law and public opinion should take their course

Not being an angel does not mean you are available to be murdered, or raped, or sodomized. If these things happen to you, you are a VICTIM.. If you do these things to other people, then you can be tried and convicted for them, even if you are a nice person .. there are just some things that can't be equalized out..if you harm someone, you pay the price if you are brought to court and convicted of it. Mike has been covicted of rape and sodomy....get over it. We'll all have to wait and see what happens in court for the murder charge..

Ted Bundy was supposedly a really nice, "good" guy, too. Still, he did horrible things and had a trial and was sentenced. I hope for a fair trial so either way, there's no question in anyone's mind.

Imagine how painful this all is for Asha's family. If he didn't do it, then let's find who did. If it's all circumstantial, he's still the suspect and needs to be tried.

next court appearance is April 15. they had a preliminary hearing to see if they were ready to proceed with the evidence hearing on Monday. I couldn't hear everything very well, but it sounded like the defense asked the judge to determine if he was going to be impartial, due to newspaper articles over the past 2 years, and from having a casual knowledge of Ron jr. Bottom line, next court appearance April 15.

he's in the county jail now, so maybe it's going to finally start.
