I am aware of what issue the above poster is referring to, and I have no personal stake, just disgust. Interesting you discount what he says without any concern about accusing innocent people of rape. Why would I bother to list any others when this is actually the most vile I too am aware of. Isn't quite worth the effort of the typing when your response is *shrug*... just hope for your sake you don't become one of their victims.

more vagueness and hints. if your boy is sooooooooo sweet and clean, why not name him and get a little more fact behind your slant. why dont you check out last 2 weeks AVA exposure of long-time comptche perv Matt Evans and his recent arrest for child-porn charges. no mention of this in any of the other local "press." i firmly believe the AVA is the only good local paper and a HELLUVA good time for a buck.

SHERIDAN, CA - A man found dead in a trailer appears to be a homicide victim, according to Placer County Sheriff's officials.

The body of Michael Glen Peacock, 48, of Sheridan was found in a travel trailer on property near Dowd Road and Dalby Road in rural Placer County around 4 p.m. Friday, Placer County Sheriff's Lt. Jeff Ausnow said.

Ausnow said some friends of the man were in the area checking in on him when they found the body in the trailer.

Ausnow said there were signs of foul play and Peacock appeared to have been killed earlier Friday.

What on earth are you talking about? If you do not know who they accused of rape, then recanted, that is your problem, not mine. No vague hints, no slant, just the fact that they recant in hard print in their own worthless smutty rag. Apparently you will believe whatever you read there, and nothing anyone else says will convince you other wise. The AVA is also reporting on the child molester recently arrested in Fort Bragg as well as the one who was caught in a sting for getting kids on myspace in Fort Bragg, right? Hilarious that you suggest I look for fact because I actually have the facts from credible, decent sources while you do not know what I discuss, you must have missed the part where the AVA slanders then prints that they were mistaken, no apologies, mind you. That comes directly out of their paper, the last one I ever read, not from my 'slant'. Once again, I hope they don't get your name and start slandering you.

Right. Quit carrying on about slander, libel, and bad sources. Anyone who bothers to double check what they read does know, and I am repulsed that it does not seem to be the case. On with sensational gossip! No fear, I'm on to much more interesting and stimulating interaction......peace....

Sorry Folks, I forgot to add that Kate Lee, Editor of the Fort Bragg Advocate News, or not, refused to cover this story of local interest! She was notified several time and it was discussed in her in house staff meetings. Yet, No Dice for the Advocate! Still can't figure that out! Can someone find out why she made this decision to not report?
Political Assasination seems to me to be a very newsworth story. But that's just me. What do you think?
The "Advocate News" seems to advocate nothing for it's community but washed over crap. I sometimes wonder exactly who it is that Kate is connected to that makes her not print the truth about what is happening in our area.. It is not just this story she has refused to print, there are others, much more news worthy than the crap that they want us to pay $.75 for. All it is is submitted articles and reprints from Ukiah Daily Journal. Where is the stories of the local Gang attacks, stabbings , etc. The public needs to be aware, not be given the idea we are this sweet safe place free from crime. It is a sham, not journalism. As far as Mr. Rogers, I heard because of his appeals for a mistrial he will be sitting in county for a few more months. The man is dirty, as well as his family. They should look into all their doings and lock them all up, throw away the key.

Let's hope not! But if that happens the DA's office must retry the case. To allow Mr. Rogers to walk the streets free to proceed with his criminal agenda would be a crime.

I am sorry, I didn't realize I was conducting a conversation with a teen. Sweety, if you have prior knowlege of a major player in a case, even if it isn't the actual defendant, and you really do not like the person, and if you have a lot of personal knowlege about people heavily involved, it can prejudice your judgement toward the defendant. You will learn more about jury selection in civics in high school, or maybe in college. I am sorry you didn't understand what I was saying, but you will gain knowlege about what it means to be objective as you grow up.
Thank you. No need to be concerend BAH.I didn't know Peacock or Rogers before the trial. During jury selection,bith defense and prosecuting attorneys and judge ask you many questions about who you know and what could prejudice your ojectivity. During the trial I discovered I lived very close to a very bad person. Richard Peacock was a pawn in a very nasty mans business. Rogers treatened to kill his daughter! Of course he wouldn't spaeak against him court...and now the witness who did seal his fate, Michael Peacocok is dead. Rogers is a very bad man.

At the Sept. 11th hearing, the defense tried to go for "jury tainting" and asked for a mistrial. Now that that particular tactic has not worked, they've gotten a statement from Christine Rogers that she saw contact between jurors and witnesses during the trial.(Of course, she never mentioned it during the actual proceedings.) Tim Stoen is arguing against release of the jurors' information to the defense because of 1) the unreliability of Mrs. Rogers as a witness, and 2) white supremicist gang involvement by Rogers, the death of Michael Peacock, and hence a danger to jurors. Next hearing is Oct. 2.
