Thanx for the information Ghettolife. As Outraged said, it's pretty hush hush here and no local networks are covering the case.
I'm so glad to hear that the girls are getting counseling. I never got any, never spoke of my abuse until a few years ago and even then only confided in few people. I'm 52 and back in my childhood this type of thing was never spoken about. Unfortunately, that usually means that the abuse continues through the generations.
My niece, who is learning disabled, was molested by her girlscout leader's neighbor. She was in a troop for learning disabled girls. 8 girls and 1 little boy were molested over a period of time before one found the courage to tell her mother. The man got 30 years.
The only information I've gotten about this case is that which my sister, or myself has dug up on the internet.(Other than the one conversation with Dan's brother I spoke of in an earlier post.)
Another one of those red flags I mentioned before. Why won't anyone in the immediate family talk to me about it? It's so weird that I have to glean news outlets and a discussion board to try to find out the truth. Then of course to try to sort out who is really telling the truth here.
Of course my sister and I have gotten some of the legal documents online too. So we do know how long the investigation has been going on, the formal charges to begin with, the charges that have been dropped, and things like that.
She is looking into getting transcripts from the arraignment so we can see the DNA evidence and read the testimony and evidence that was entered there.
It's a shame that the girls had to witness the violence in the parking lot after court. How awful for them.
I'm still praying that Danny is innocent, I'm still praying for those precious children, and I'm still praying that the truth is revealed and justice is served.
I hope that you people that still post here will continue to do so. I also appreciate that although you believe that Dan is guilty and may even hate him, you have all been really polite to me and understand that I do love him.
I'm so thankful my Aunt Helen isn't here to witness this. She and I always drank hot tea in the morning when I stayed with them. I was only like 4 or 5 back then .........
Hello, that is to bad that the girls had to see their parents treated like that. To have roses best friend, and danny,s hunting buddy working as ballif's for court, when they patrol or do prisoner transport. That situation could have been handeled in so many different ways, by an neutral group of deputy's. The only good thing that may come of that is the deputy's made all these poor judgement calls in front of 2 DA's a state police detective, and a victim's right advocate, just shows lea county deputy's take care of their OWN. But it's not over yet.

I believe that success starts with doing what is right, not harming another human being, helping others if possible, and having a clear conscience.

Karma is a mother and it ALWAYS comes around. So the truth will prevail.

The material things in life can be very fleeting. Look at Dan and Rose, whether he is innocent or guilty, they have lost their successful careers, their monitary value and the respect and love of so many.

If it is proven he is innocent, then they too are victims. They will have lost so much they can never again have. If it is proven he is guilty, they will lose everything, and they should. Including their freedom.

These little girls will be effected by this their entire lives. I pray they continue to receive therapy and counciling for many years to come.

Then there is ALWAYS the next life and that all important judgement day lying ahead of them. And ALL OF US.

I may not post here everyday, but I do check the board, google for news on the case and check court documents EVERY SINGLE DAY.

Still not a word from my family on this matter ..........

Please keep in mind these kids loved Danny & Rose and have too lost a lot. Right now there is not much update because the judges are excluding themselves from the trail. ROSE FAILED EVERYONE in this case because she was the first to be told. The girls trusted her enough to tell. If Danny did not do this why didn't she call the police and have the exam done to the 9year old? If Rose had did what she knew was the right thing the case would have been open and shut. Either Danny’s DNA would have been all over or there would have not been any. But I believe she knows the truth and did not intend for the mother to contact the police. I also believe this is why Rose has disowned Tanya and the children. We pray that all things hided will be revealed./ Believe me Tanya was just as shock that Danny did this to her girls. Tanya trusted & loved both. Rose is making this about MONEY she was worried about herself and his retirement. So I guess she will be fine whatever the outcome. Because Rose will get his retirement check regardless of what will happens to him. Believe me, she is playing all of this out so she gets the money. Everyone know Rose and his girls could not stand each other, but I guess in desperate times they have now become a very close and happy family. Rose even spent Christmas with Pam his ex-wife, and the girls. WOW she should have been up actor!!

I totally understand what you are saying Ghettolife. You stated that the girls loved Dan and Rose a lot and they too have lost a lot. These two little girls have lost more than ANYONE else involved in this case. So has their mother.

I'm sorry, but it would be a cold day in he-- before I would turn my back on my daughter or granchildren. Not for all the money in the world. And certainly not for ANY man, husband or not.

Here are two little girls whose grandma is a police officer. I can only imagine how many times she has assured them if anyone ever hurt them if they told her she would protect them. That she would make sure they went to jail. Probably encouraged them to come tell her right away. Then when they did, she has done nothing but hurt them more and disown them??

Even if she does believe in Danny's innocense, that is NOT the behavior of a loving and caring grandmother! She should have reported it, done everything in her power to get to the bottom of what would make these little ones that adored their grandparents say such a thing! Taken them to the doctor and had all evidence preserved. She KNOWS THE PROTOCOL. SHAME ON HER!!!

Upon hearing the accusations, Danny himself, being a law enforcement officer, should have followed protocol and took the proper steps to ensure all evidence was preserved. Afterall, even if he knew for a fact he was innocent, someone else could have been violating these girls.

As I have said before, I was molested for YEARS by a family member, and have studied and read about child abuse and pedophiles for many years. It's not common that a child accuse a family member of this sort of thing at all.

I know what you are saying about Danny's retirement is true. I am a widow and I receive 1/2 of my late husbands pension. So Rose will receive his pension if he receives it.

But did Dan put in for his retirement before his arrest? I'm not clear if he is found guilty of these crimes if he will be receive his pension? Considering the alledged crimes were committed while he was still in uniform and on the force?

I find it laughable that Rose and Pam and the girls are all so *close* since his arrest. I know the hatred that flowed between them.

I know that some of Dan's immediate family reads my posts here and those that do not, are aware of them. I doubt that I will speak with any of them again. But, I will continue to follow this case.

I have had no response back from my requests that he phone me. I know what the outcome of the trial will be. Physical evidence does not lie for one thing. There is no reason in the world that his DNA would be found on one of the girls panties.

When I mentioned this in an email to one of his immediate family, I was told that it could have come from anywhere, even the laundry. And then there was the excuse that it came from wrestling/tickling and it was sweat.

I have to admit, I am shocked at the effect this case has had on me. I have had many sleepless nights since learning about all of this. I really do pray for those children. They are on my mind frequently.

Thanx again for continuing to shed light on things for me Ghettolife. I want the truth and justice just as much as you do. Believe me when I say that.

Thank you for the advice. I know that by the time the actual trial begins there are going to be delays, continuences, and the like. It may be a year or more before the trial begins.

I've followed many criminal cases and trials throughout the years. Look how long it's been that Casey Anthony's trial has been pushed back and pushed back. I could name several off the top of my head that still await trial. Mostly crimes against children is what I follow and write to my Senators and Representatives about.

Children cannot fight for laws to protect them, it's up to adults to do so for them.

Wow! You are a very strong individual. I pray these girls learn from all of this and turn out just as strong as you. It is good to know that even when something bad happens you can walk away stronger. Just too bad that it had to happen too these girls. For that matter any girls. I will again give the girl’s mother your email address. Maybe she will contact you. I think you might be able to help them or point her in the right direction. I will keep posting with updates for you as the parents inform me of new information.

Just as ghettolife said...you are a strong woman!. I commend you for standing up for all these children who can't stand up for themselves. You asked why these other victims haven't stepped foward well it took you years as well as myself to step forward. I know I was ashamed of it for years. But you know what? NOT ANYMORE! I'm not the one who did anything wrong. He did. And I wish I would of came forward along time ago and maybe noone else would of been victimized. But I didn't and I know of at least one other girl who was victimized after me, here in the recent years because some how, some way he was charged with that crime. Thank the Lord. and I've visited your site on the 12yr old who was tortured, raped, and murdered. I wanted to ask you if this case was made into a movie because it sounds so familiar? And I seen one of your post where you thanked us for helping you find out info and for being nice to you. Well no need for that. We are not going to be rude to you just because Danny is your family. You haven't done anything wrong to us and you have sat on the sidelines trying to get the facts. And I know i want this case out in the public as much as possible so that these other victims might now have the courage to come forward, even if the statue of limitations has passed. Can you answer me another question? how did you find out about this case with Danny?

How I found out about this case is so strange. Especially considering that the arrest was in September and the investigation began months before that.

As I've stated before, I do a LOT of research on child abuse and crimes against children. I was just following some links and came across an article about police corruption in New Mexico. Since Dan and Rose are police officers out there I just clicked the link out of curiosity. Never in a million years did I fathom that I would see anything about them.

There was another link, the one that headlines this thread. For a minute or two I just sat here rereading Danny's name. I swear, all I kept thinking to myself is no way .......... Then I began reading this blog and the other one here at Topix.

My mind was running a million miles an hour in all different direction. So after the initial shock and I began to think a little more clearly, I phoned his brother, Don. Then I emailed another of Dan's immediate family with my phone number and asked if they would tell Danny I would like to speak with him.

Noone has contacted me, and since I have begun to post here and research myself to find answers, I doubt anyone will.

One of my sisters is helping me dig up old articles, find court documents and has sent me the forms to request transcripts of the arraignment. Since I am not a resident there, I'm not sure if I can order them. Especially since the victims are children.

Thanx for the compliments on my Justice for Shanda Sharer website. It's a sad day today for Shanda's friends and family. She was murdered 29 yrs. ago today. Jan. 11, 1992. God Bless her mother Jacque, her sister, Paige, and everyone else that loved her. RIP sweet Shanda.

Well do you think it's odd that you haven't heard any thing from a "innocent" victim? I do. I don't know what I can do to help but I will keep you informed on all that I find out. And It's a sad story and situation for Shanda's family. I will be praying for them. You didn't answer my question about if it was made into a movie?

Yes, I did find it very odd that Danny didn't phone me when I asked him to via a family member. Now I don't think it is odd that he doesn't, as I said, I'm sure that he and his supporters read this board on a regular basis. I know I would.

Regarding Shanda Sharer and your question; no thee was never a movie. Her case has been featured on a few documentaries and there has also been two books written about her story. LITLE LOST ANGEL and CRUEL SACRIFICES.

Thank you for continuing to keep me informed, and your prayers for Shanda's family.

I'm so very sorry for the pain and turmoil your family is going through. I am so glad that the girls are receiving therapy.

I'm praying for them, your family, Danny's children and grandchildren, and our family. May God give us all the strength and courage to face the truth and seek justice.

Peace ..........
