Hello My Friends:
"Justice delayed is justice denied" is a legal maxim meaning that if legal redress is available for a party that has suffered some injury, but is not forthcoming in a timely fashion, it is effectively the same as having no redress at all. This principle is the basis for the right to a speedy trial and similar rights which are meant to expedite the legal system, because it is unfair for the injured party to have to sustain the injury with little hope for resolution. The phrase has become a rallying cry for legal reformers who view courts or governments as acting too slowly in resolving legal issues either because the existing system is too complex or overburdened, or because the issue or party in question lacks political favor.

As Chief Justice Warren E. Burger noted: "A sense of confidence in the courts is essential to maintain the fabric of ordered liberty for a free people and three things could destroy that confidence and do incalculable damage to society: that people come to believe that inefficiency and delay will drain even a just judgment of its value; that people who have long been exploited in the smaller transactions of daily life come to believe that courts cannot vindicate their legal rights from fraud and over-reaching; that people come to believe the law - in the larger sense - cannot fulfill its primary function to protect them and their families in their homes, at their work, and on the public streets.

The courts are not the problem in the Kelly Ann Tinyes homicide, it is the Nassau County, NY, District Attorney's Office, starting with Denis Dillon and on up to current DA Kathleen Rice. Would you be satisfied, as the parents of a murdered child, if only one of the known suspects was prosecuted for your child’s murder? You are never given an explanation as to why the other suspect was allowed to walk away, never setting foot in a courtroom. Maybe "suspect" is the wrong terminology, because according to the DA's office, there was only one suspect, Robert Golub.
Kelly Ann Tinyes went to the Golub house after receiving a telephone call from John J. Golub. We know that he has admitted making the call to multiple friends; this is a known fact.

My investigation indicates a conspiracy between Brothers John J. Golub and Robert Golub, to entice Kelly to their house, in the hopes of smoking pot and having sex with her. None of which Kelly would have ever considered. Her refusal is what led to the ensuing mayhem. Several days before, JJ had observed a boy and girl getting hot and heavy at one of their homes.

In JJ's mind, he thought that this would make him "cool" in the eyes of his new friends Steve Bataan and Glen McMahon; thus far, there is no indication that Bataan or McMahon had any knowledge or involvement in the conspiracy and/or murder. That part of the investigation continues. There is a strong indication that John J. Golub was given a polygraph examination and extensively interviewed by the Nassau County Homicide detectives, during the first days of the investigation. I wonder if Robert Golub's defense counsel Salvatore Marinello was aware of that before or during his trial.

What, if any deal was made for John J.'s help in convicting his brother Robert? John J. never testified during Robert's trial, the Prosecutor, Dan Cotter did not want him there.

It makes me wonder why Robert's defense counsel did not call John J. Golub; after all, Robert said he did not make the call to Kelly. It does not matter what I think about Robert Golub, what matters is that he was railroaded, guilty or not, he never stood a chance.

The DA's office and Nassau County Homicide bulldozed any obstacles that stood in their way of getting a conviction. That included a six-year-old girl, who by all civilian accounts saw Kelly in the basement of the Golub house, by the time they finished interviewing her, using so-called experts. The child's story was disjointed and confusing. The bulls totally discredited her recollection of events, why? Answer: Because it did not fit with the scenario, they were manufacturing for Robert. They only wanted the most viable candidate for trial and that was Robert Golub. It was even disappointing to Det. Wells; he stated, "Half a loaf was better than none".

There is no doubt in my mind that the Nassau County District Attorney's Office, namely Kathleen Rice does not want to deal with the skeletons and misdeeds of Denis Dillon anymore. However, whether she likes it or not, the chickens are coming home to roost. This will certainly not help her political career and future aspirations. The Justice4Kelly movement has many supporters and we have just begun to become vocal. You will hear about this cause on the radio, TV, and newspapers. Why am I so certain of this, you might ask...because everyone loves a scandal.

John J. Golub has been free since the afternoon Kelly's body was discovered in the Golub basement. Why? Simple answer; because elected and sworn public servants did not do the job that they had sworn to do. Moreover, they are still not doing it.

"There is no crueler tyranny than that which is exercised under cover of law, and with the colors of justice ..."
- U.S. v. Jannotti, 673 F.2d 578, 614 (3d Cir. 1982)




I will be back, and back again!!!

God Bless Kelly Ann and the Tinyes family,

Why wasn't John j. called to testify by the defense? Because the Golubs were footing the bill, and John Sr knew in his heart that someone in his home murdered Kelly. The physical and logical evidence against Robert was significant, but against John it was mosrlt circumstantial. My guess is that John Sr. let Robert go down the tubes, and didn't let Marinello call John Jr to the stand because he might incriminate himself on examination. Considering the brutality of the crime, almost for certain Robert was involved, and although most observers and family think John Jr. was involved. My guess is that Dillon went for the sure thing in court, Robert. He probably correctly reasoned that a 14 year old charged as an accessory (without physical evidence tying him to the crime) would likely be remanded to a youth facility, and be released before he was 18. Without physical evidence, or a credible witness, no jufge or jury would have sentenced him to a long term, and back then, probably not charge him as an adult.
