Thank you for bringing out the truth about "how we do things here" in Portage County. I have watched this kind of thing go on my entire life. I have seen Pitman be downright rude and discourteous to lawyers who come from out of the county. I have seen Kainrad totally disregard constitutional rights and refuse to acknowledge anything that would be just when he does not like to offender. He basically ignores Supreme Court rulings just as Pitman does. Please continue to speak up and bring this out in the open because if it wasn't for reporters with guts the truth would never have come out. The only reason Pitman wants a gag order is for the benefit of the prosecution because she knows those two men were wrongfully imprisoned and any publicity would work in their favor. I don't recall a gag order being issued on any other trial around here. In fact just the opposite...I have seen defendants dragged through the mud to bring bad news out into the open. GOOD LUCK Bob and Randy!!!!

Yes Laurie Pittman is not working for the public.
She has big parties at her house for the Sheriffs & Social Works in Portage county.
Do not expect a fair trial!
Then there are the parties at her family's campgrounds too.
