Here is what Donna Yaklich's first defense attorney, John Giduck, has been up to since then

http://www.scribd.com/doc/85830147/John-Giduc...

hahaha...he claims to have spent 18 years in Russian Spoecial Forces Spetsnaz commando when he was living and working right here in Colorado. Lots of information about his role with Donna Yaklich too.

Donna did only one thing wrong, she should have killed him herself. Any man who constantly beats his wife to the point of having to be in the hospital has the right to kill for personal protection. This was all the fault of the police for not doing their job and protecting her. The police are not above the law.

I'm going to expand on this. Why do we have a Chief of Police who was rejected by Colorado Springs Police? I went up to see him about Crockenberg being a felon. He said that Crockenberg had the right to defend his client vigerousely at my discovery. NO he was not allowed to even be at my discovery. Victims have no rights to this man. Women victims. Just like Donna, beat the hell out of a woman, refuse victom rights to a woman, rape any woman you want, and the good ol boys will stick together. Distroy police reports, the DA doesn't know what to do about it or he is nicely paid off. Parkview allowes patient abuse. Rape anayone in Parkview and they will cover it up.The judges will cover it up. Medical abuse in Parkview? No problem for Parkview, the judges will again abuse you. It is time for women to organize in Pueblo and stop this abuse. We need to scream all the way to Washington until all of us are safe. But then how safe is that? The Sheriff does not allow freedom of speech. Neither does Judge Rayes.

Who knows the truth about the Branch Inn. Too many people know another story than the one we were fed. If this is true then this was murder. Good ol' boys have struck again. Since the story was out days before the explosion, I believe the covered up story. What did you hear? I called the FBI and they told me not to call back. Do you suppose the mob in Pueblo owns the FBI here? Too much abuse to women in this crappy little town.

Why do her kids say there was no abuse? Close friends of the family say the same thing.

"I was abused" is an easy excuse. She could have just left.

Plus it doesn't change that one of her initial defense attorneys describes sleeping with her as "helping her". Why do you seem fine with that?

Many people have open marrages. That she slept with her attorney is fine with me. She owed nothing to a man who beat her so badly. If her attorney gave her kindness and a place to feel safe, she deserved that. None of this would have happened if the police had protected her. Fourty years ago, women who were beaten and abused were told by their clergy to pray harder and God will make your husband a nice person. It was all the womans falt for not praying to God enough. Well, thank God that kind of thinking is no longer forced on women. That was a giant guilt trip to take the responsability away from the man. It's all the little womans fault. I have no kindness for men who abuse women. If she found a bit of peace and security with her lawyer, I'm happy for her.

Do you know how many women are killed and beaten to a pulp when they try to leave? Just leaving a violent posessive man is a very tricky thing to do and stay alive.

You have not present the whole truth. Dennis Yaklich's first wife died from "a very serious blunt forcee injury." A task force came to the conclusion that "this is a very suspicious death."

"Her release was preceded by an investigation into the suspicious death of Dennis Yaklich"s first wife Barbara."..........At the hearing, seven family members and friends of Donna Yaklich offered support for her release. Included in those groups was Donna's adult son and her mother.

Mimi, you sound very vested in this case. Did John Giduck gave you some of his kindness too?

Weak women complain about abuse, FBI, and Sheriffs; strong women get up and leave their abusers and go on with their lives. Donna Yaklich had options but instead she chose to hire two teenagers to kill her husband, then collected his three life insurance policies and went on vacation.

Of course, if a woman is not educated and does not have any skills that would allow her to find a job and make a good living then it is more difficult for her to leave. Oh well, should have been reading books instead of spreading her legs.

Dennis Yaklich did not deserve to die the way he did and John Giduck should have exhibited better ethics as a lawyer.

His first wife should not have been murdered, but then, perhaps she hit herself in the head. Not enough is done about women who are abused. I care very much that abuse is exposed. Because I have know such abuse by the good ol boys in Pueblo with proof, this discusts me. Strong women stand up to abusers so that other women may be protected. This I will continue to do. No, I did not have sex with her attorney. I have been celibate since 1995 and will stay that way. I am not fond of the mentality of the men in Pueblo, and I am not smart enough to tell the good from the bad. I sleep with my animals and that is enough.

You totally missed the point. If you have not been battered you would not know what happens to a woman physically and emotionally. Knowing you could be killed is living in hell. Her attorney was kind and careing. The sex was only a by-product of giving kindness. Many women have sex only to be close and held. Not for orgasims. This city ows her a debt of gratitude for killing him before he killed someone else. Again, the police are guilty for not protecting her, for not jailing him.

We can believe NOTHING that the police say about guilty police officers. They also distroyed police reports on David Crockenberg and Ken Salazar was part of the cover up. They would never say that Donna's husband was on drugs. She is white. I would like to know how many other white women the police have abused. All of the mexican judges are the same way. There is a war against women in this city. I was robbed and intimidated by theves with a knife. The policeman laughed and wrote a false report. Of course they were mexicans so that was ok. There are so many lovely Hispanics, just normal people. But, there are too many with no values other than , what can I take from you, how can I abuse you. To me, the DA is as bad as the police. He hates white women.

I'm Mimi's dog...I've told her to stop saying that there is a war against women in this city. Especially women that hire young boys to kill their police officer husbands.
John Giduck, Ms. Yaklich's first defense attorney, has recently been tied to a group that the Washington Times says may have been involved in the bombing of a US Embassy.

There IS a war against women in this city. If something so out in the open as this, you try to hide, you are not keeping up with the news. We are suppose to be ignowant Mexican woman to all men and agree to every thing that they say and do? Even the term "ignoran Mexican women," doesn't work any more. They are getting stronger all of the time. Now it is more the Shirea Law (spelling?)that is prevalent in the courts. Animals that I rescue are far more appealing than the two legged kind wanting to rule by harm. The last person who said to me, "I told you not to say that," was Judge Rayes. He refused to hear the truth and placed a judgment on my case.---and you think there is not a war on women. I have yet to deal with this with Judge Rayes. He sealed the case befor the case was over and papers in the case were changed. He belongs in jail and off of the bench. He only protects his friends. not the law. What is the date on this Washington paper story. I would like to read this.

Eleanor: Now it's my turn to say you sound very vested, but it's in someone's defense that I'm not sure would put his hand in the fire for you. I am not by any means defending Mrs. Yaklich's actions, but I was not there and I do feel compassion for someone who was a victim of abuse. It's very easy to sit there and judge someone without walking in their shoes. But I will say this: An eye for an eye, and you pay for everything you do in life, even if no one knows the sins you have committed, guess what- the man upstairs does. An eye for an eye......

I, too, was a battered woman when I was 26 years old. And I, too, NEVER EVER thought I would find myself in that situation, ever. Physical abuse doesn't happen overnight...it's not like you wake up one morning after marital bliss and he hits you out of the blue. There is a lot of emotional, verbal, and mental abuse that precedes the physical kind. And by the time the physical abuse begins, the woman is isolated from her friends and family, has no self-esteem left, and walks on eggshells to keep from making him angry (which never works).

I was educated, had a marketable skill, had a family who loved me, and certainly knew right from wrong...and I did NOT "spread my legs instead of reading books". I simply found myself brainwashed over the course of time and thought I could make things better if I just did what he told me to do, and be what he wanted me to be. And by the time he beat the crap out of me 6 weeks after the wedding, I didn't care if I survived it or not.....that's how sick I was after our 3-year relationship.

Social psychology is a very powerful thing! And that's what abusive men use all too well before the first blow ever occurs. I have no idea if Donna Yaklich lied or not, or is more guilty than the crime she was convicted of. I just know that I RESENT the stereotype that too many people have of battered women. We are NOT stupid, we are NOT uneducated, we are NOT deserving of ANY abuse, and we do NOT do this to ourselves. We're just so beaten down mentally that our view of ourselves suffers greatly and apathy prevails.

I was one of the lucky ones who still had family ties and somewhere to go, but it took me YEARS to recover...not from the physical bruises, but from the mental ones. And those scars are still there.

The truth is.....NO one can ever REALLY know what it's like to be a battered woman unless you are one yourself.

And don't think it can never happen to you because that's EXACTLY what I thought. Mental abuse is seductive and creeps up on you, and slowly changes you, until you not only don't know your abuser...you no longer know yourself.
