(This is Sean Hannity's theme song. I can not imagine that he ever listened to the words.)

Independence Day

They said he was a dangerous man
But mama was proud and she stood her ground
She knew she was on the losin' end
Some folks whispered and some folks talked
But everybody looked the other way
And when time ran out there was no one about
On Independence Day

Let freedom ring, let the white dove sing
Let the whole world know that today is a day of reckoning
Let the weak be strong, let the right be wrong
Roll the stone away, let the guilty pay it's Independence Day

Well she lit up the sky that fourth of July
By the time that the firemen come
They just put out the flames, and took down some names
And sent me to the county home
Now I ain't sayin' it's right or it's wrong
But maybe it's the only way
Talk about your revolution
It's Independence Day
Well she seemed all right by dawns early light
Though she looked a little worried and weak
She tried to pretend he wasn't drinkin' again
But daddy left the proof on her cheek
And I was only eight years old that summer
And I always seemed to be in the way
So I took myself down to the fair in town
On Independence Day

Decision Day

Coincidence

1993

A very popular video was played over and over again on television until it changed into a drinking song for Patriots.

Imagine the impact of this video on a child's mind.

Even if the tragic fire on May 11, 2011 never happened, Rachel and all children of her time would have the impact of this video on their mind.

Boy that video could go several ways. How does it fit? Amanda set the fire?

Never mind, I know that's not what you meant.

I think you meant that any girl watching such a video would be encouraged to think that fire/killing would be a viable option for getting free from abuse/oppression.

Who was abusing her? Am I right?

The more horrible the crime the more the chance that the justice system will fail.

Fort Hood shooting suspect wants death penalty out;
judge to decide next week

By: Associated Press - Texarkana Gazette

FORT WORTH, Texas—The new judge in the Fort Hood shooting rampage case faces a controversial decision next week: whether to spare Maj. Nidal Hasan a possible death sentence and let him plead guilty in the worst mass shooting on a U.S. military installation.

Spare my life and I will plead guilty to anything !

Why does a person who believes in God and His reward of eternal happiness in heaven prefer to rot in a Texas Prison rather than be executed as a martyr for his faith ?

Give me liberty or give me death !

In Fort Hood, Texas, the Texas Justice System is bested by a military psychiatrist who hears voices.

In Henderson, Texas, the Texas Justice System is bested by a 16 year old child who hears voices.

Maybe so, but I don't really care about the justice system or its faults. I just care about a person.

That's not to say that I am not unconcerned about making things better for others yet to come, but it's just not my agenda. My agenda is personal, not political. Nor am I interested in using her as an example for some ideal, no matter how lofty it is.

I want to help her, end of story.

Caligula,

You have to care about the justice system

if you want to help Rachel.

I think that we have established reasonable

doubt that Rachel is not guilty of the crime

that she accuses herself of.

Yes, there is a reasonable doubt, based on what WE know, which is not much.

We have speculation. You know I'm with you, even if I play devil's advocate with my questions (someone must), but there has to be more than speculation, for anything to happen.

This is not speculation

These are real people

Real people make the best witnesses

Pattie and Terry Dodd say:

They have known Pittman for over 10 years and considered her like a granddaughter. "Her mama came to us right after she confessed because she knew we would be heartbroken," says Pattie. "She would come over and I would say Rachel why do you want to spend time with this old woman and man?' and she would say 'Because I love you'.

At the time of the murders, Pittman lived next to the Dodd's home, about a half mile from the Doss's home. "She lived right behind that privacy fence and she never never done anything wrong," says Terry.

The Dodds say Pittman knew the victims. "She kept them kids and worked for that woman," says Pattie. "I do think they need to investigate it more because there is no way. She didn't do it herself. There is no way.

Sure, those are great character witnesses, but nothing more than that.

I will say this, though. After explaining the situation to someone I trust (Army MOS's 18B and 35X), and showing him a picture of Rachel, he didn't believe she did it, said the same thing as the old couple. Although, his remark was to the effect that, even for people who are trained for that sort of "work", it's very challenging to maintain the resolve to see it through. Perhaps something gave her that resolve.

None of this proves anything, and proof is just what we do need. People, places, motives, and the justice system is not going to expend another dime on an investigation which is closed.

Before this, I use to trust prople like Jerry Rochelle. Rachel wanted to turn herself in and did. Why did the D.A. say the defense attorneys requested a plea for a reduced sentence? The D.A. lied again. The defense did not offer a plea reduction from Capital Murder to Murder as was reported in the paper and "on the record" in court today. It was, in fact, the D.A. that had Mike Bishop make the call to the defense attorneys and offer THEM a reduced sentence. Rachel and Rachel alone chose to accept it. This was done only AFTER ...YES AFTER the psychiatrist hired by the county (to assess Rachel's condition) made the same diagnosis as both the psychiatrist and psychologist hired by the defense! Their mutual diagnosis: paranoid schizophrenia!(It is a horrible genetic disease that usually begins to show around age 17 to 21 in females. It can begin earlier if marujuana is consumed. In this case, both Dana and Amanda provided not only marijuana, but also alchohol to a minor).
Why did the D.A want it to appear as though the defense made the request for a plea? Follow this line of thought: which would look better for a politician who is seeking re-election? Imagine that. Jerry Rochelle, integrity should matter more than looking good any way you can in order to keep your job. I can't blame them much though. Such behavior is expected of politicians in these times. Jerry, the little things you do, beyond doing your job, do matter; the real truth matters. That is why I am writing this. So many people have said, "Something just isn't right here". I will tell you what I know.
It was Rachel that wanted to turn herself in. Her mother made the call and drove her to meet Sherrif Prince at Rachel's request. It was Rachel, AFTER being told she had the worst mental disease known, who chose to waive her right to trial and pursue the "guilty but insane" venue which is termed "innocent by reason of insanity" in the state of Texas
Dana Lynn epps and her boy friend did this together. Wish the girl would talk! From what I hear Dana finally got her self a job. Wish I knew where!
