The legal system allows these lazy women to take half of a hard working man’s money… how is that fair?
The evil women get so vindictive and greedy during the divorce and they can only think emotionally, and not logically or rationally.
And, the courts allow them to get away with it.
|And don’t give me the “she raised his kids” crap.
The kids that were the joy of her life?
It just goes to show how low that women will go. They use their own children, the joys of their lives, and then act as if it was a HUGE burden to raise those same children and that they should receive half of the money because they were forced to raise those burdensome children.
Women are only happy when they get their way; 100% their way; and only their way.
Good riddance. She brought it on herself and her family helped.
How do lazy women believe that they deserve half?
Tigers Woods and Kobe Bryant are prime examples. They worked their entire lives to be great and now their evil wives get half?
It makes no sense. I hope they meet the same fate.
Tell it son , Goddamn you've got balls . Possibly in the same position as me . I dont condone what he may have done , but the hypocrisy , greed , control , selfishness and just being unfair sure makes it hard to good guy

WOW!!
A marriage is a partnership. Women don't get half of everything, they get half of the assets that were gained during the marriage. So what ever Cal had before he married Michelle remains his. Everything he attains after marriage is half hers. That is how marriage works. If you don't want to share your life with someone then don't get married. No one deserves to die because they want half of what is theirs. She was not greedy, but she needs to be taken care of. Women sometimes put careers and jobs on hold to raise children properly. It does not mean the children were a burden, but the wife gave her time to them instead of gaining wealth for herself. You should never say anyone deserves to die. I certainly hope your not married!!

I don't know if anyone is still interested in this case, but the venue just changed (for trial number 3) and it is being discussed on a forum I belong to www.solveacoldcase.com The forum even has some detectives unassociated with the case (other than the forum) looking at it. Pretty interesting.

Who raised the Harris kids?
Cal Harris ' brother Steve hated Cal. His wife was mentioned in the last appeal -- she had testified against Cal. Is it possible TWO Harris family members conspired to kill Michelle after she sought the accounting of the family biz in the middle of the divorce? It would not be unlike Steve to turn on Cal after the fact. Does this press conference signal a circling of the Harris family wagons? Steve once drove across Oneonta to bludgeon Cal for 'stealing' a sale. Former workers say there was blood everywhere and then " Steve stepped back and let Cal get some swings in so the cops would need to consider charging both." Steve Harris also sued his own mother---parents gifted all boys with a dealership and kids were to basically pay them a retirement. After dad died Steve sued mama harris and lost.http:/ny.findacase.com/re search/wfrmDocviewer,aspx/xq/f ac.1997065_0009 Not a nice family. They have to go far afield to find attorneys to touch them. Sick to use the children this way. Were cal's kids raised by the Steve Harris--cited by the NY attorney general office in 1998 and 2004 for dishonesty? Does Steve Harris hold fracking permits in Vestal, NY? Do the anti frackers in Cooperstown who have embraced his bucks know who he is?

If Cal had nothing to do with whatever happened to Michele, why doesn't he agree to do a lie detector test. If I was him I would do everything i can to clear my name and even though a lie detector test is not submissible in court, it will certainly support his story with society. The truth will come out, for everyone's sake.

Once again it is confirmed the "system" has less integrity than a Magic 8 Ball. Where else could an uber-rich
defendant expect to walk after being convicted The first time due to a bogus witness appearing SIX YEARS after the crime and immediately after the first conviction. This miracle witness contacts the defense lawyer vs law enforcement but said nothing
during that SIX YEAR time period to investigators, incredulously claiming "he didn't hear about the matter".

I think you should have proof before you even go to trial. I just watched the show and i am shocked that the prosecutor gave the case a 50/50 shot of a conviction. It just dosent seem right to me. Im not sure if this man killed his wife or not...I would need more proof than what I saw. Very sad for all involved.
Braindead Mopes are the pitfall of the jury system. BM = look in the mirror.
