According to my sources it took between 6 and 7 hours; Jerry also had to purchase their meals.

You know, for what it's worth, I had no dog in this hunt and after hearing the state's evidence at preliminary hearing, I thought the D.A. was wrong, Meek was innocent, and the state had made a monumental error. After hearing the trial testimony, however, I would have agreed with the jury. It was partly Meek's own testimony which, whether he realizes it or not, revealed why he first cut the carpet the way he did (the dresser against the wall), and partly the stuff about the Roberts. They had absolutely no reason to lie or even to want to be in the trial, since they lived in Durant. Sales clerk had no reason to lie, either. I think Pierce erred in allowing his P.I. to join Tiffanie in going to the Roberts' house after the preliminary hearing. Never, ever a goo idea to contact state witnesses after the preliminary. I still think Pierce's mistakes are Meek's best avenue for appeal. Doubt that will be the approach, however.

<quoted text> TWEETY BIRD, according to you Jerry Meeks could be compared to an angel and after committing murder you still consider hin such a nice person. It may or may not be true in what was said fron the witness chair in court about hope Meeks but a person should show some respect for a prson who is dead. nd the jury concluded after hearing the evidence that Mr. Meeks did commit murder upon Hope Meeks, the wife oof Jerry Meeks. So I do believe that makes Mr, Meeks anot so nice of a person to be allowed into society. That is not to say you can not have your own opinion of Mr. Meeks ; be whatever he is to be. Have a nice day TWEETY and God Bless..
papoy I think u read it wrong. I called jerry a SOB. Please notice I dont use MR.!!! They shud not bash Mrs. HOPE, when she is not hear to defend herself..R.I.P. Hope!

I have been reading this thread for awhile now, making up my mind. I do think Jerry Meek is guilty. Many people that believe he did not do this crime... Was not capable of it... They do not realize what seemingly "ordinary" human beings are capable of. Speaking from a psychological point of view, it can be difficult to decipher who is "capable" of murder. Some sociopaths are capable of maintaining a pristine image in their communities. Some might say they are model citizens. These are the type to plan out a murder, even become serial killers. The ordinary person, who is not in the least a sociopath, is still capable, however. I've heard these murders described as "crimes of passion". Which means they did not plan it out, the had a temporary state of emotions which allowed them to act regardless of their morality. These people still have to be punished. It is not okay to take someone's life, despite what irrational feelings you may have at the time. That being said, we have to stop assuming that just because someone goes to church or loves their children that they are innocent. I think the jury was forced to listen to facts in this case, and they found him guilty. If they'd of watched his home videos with the family, they might have found him innocent. But ultimately, logic should be the goal. That same logic should be applied when considering whether this case exemplifies corruption. That would be a lot of highly esteemed people, at many levels, involved in a conspiracy. I will be the first to say that McCurtain county could use less "smoke filed rooms" in civil cases. But in a highly publicized criminal case? Very unlikely. They knew am appeal would take place if convicted, I doubt anyone was willing to risk it, even if they had the agenda. Which, sorry, I don't believe they did.

Under the right conditions, an "average" or "ordinary" citizen of any culture will do anything and everything that you can imagine. Plus more that you can't possibly imagine. After all, we are animals, primates, who happen to have evolved and swelled up our frontal lobes. We're apes with agendas. Anyone in the deeper, specialized military forces are taught to get in touch with these primal drives which society does it's best to water-down, pacify, and tame.

Someone who knows wrote:
No one owes Hopes family anything . All that was said was true & more. I knew her quite well when she came to oklahoma.She told me things about her family what they deny so if she lied about her Mom & sister wouldn't she lie about Jerry. I have known him his whole life & he is not a violent person. He would walk away if provoked.
meone who knows, let me say a few things here. My sister talked to my mother 4 to 5 times a day. She talked to me 4 times a week. It was proven by phone records. And if he supposedly didnt abuse my little sister then why did people see marks, why did the kids tell things. And when she "disappeared" we called the house and her cell phone 20 times a day. Jerry finally called our home on the 5th day. I confronted him on the abuse, he says :if you call that abuse your as stupid as your sister WAS". I am the one he spoke with that nite and I told him he better report her missing because we were doing the same. Her father was on the phone with the police when Jerry called in to make the report. And 2 days before that, we had the police do a well being check. He told them she left 10 minutes before to go to the store. Her truck was sitting there. Then when the missing report was done, he changed his story. He has never tried to work with authorities, he has done nothing but bash Hope. I know you say you have known him all his life and dont believe it. But let me tell you, I know for a fact he abused my sister and he did murder her. If he didnt murder her, why was her cell phone, keys, truck, glasses, contacts and everything at the house. She would not leave without contacting our mother. You can say what you want, but I know my sister NEVER bad mouthed my mother or myself. Grow up and face facts. He murdered Hope and the jury found him guilty. And I have been involved in the case, I got searches done, news articles, websites, programs, candlelight vigils and much more.My sister may not have been perfect, but she was a great woman, mother, sister and daughter. Her oldest daughters FATHER did not want her with Jerry Meek. He is not her father. He and Tiffanie Oney have kept my mother away from her grand children...thats crap...enough said

It's sad to say, but I agree. What differs is from animals is only keeping constant moral check... an awareness of something more than just survival. If we ever set that aside, even for just a moment, we are basically as you say, just primates.

You might get something out of looking into theories of Evolution of Morality. Interesting stuff.

WAbbit, the difference between a killer and a person that has not committed murder is the use of self restraint and thinking correctly. Once a person has lost their control and use of self restraint anyone can become a killer. Some people just have no self control in certain situationsand end up causing injury or killing their victimsSo in the end any person that has no self control over their emotions or self restraint can commit murder and think nothing about it and then places blame on the victim. Even claims his or her innocence of the murder. And of course they always have an excuse of they made me do t.

When I toured Oklahoma State Penitentiary, in McAlester, there was an interesting guy who described the electric chair and gave us some idea about what it was like to put someone to death. He quoted some statistics, I don't know how accurate they are, but over 90% of people who were put to death at that prison committed their original crimes while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

You know how they often say chemicals in the brain can lead to "uninhibited" or "disinhibited" behavior? That comes from a primal place, a much older area of the brain when we were not yet fully evolved and major violent acts were for the most part, uneventful. Those types of actions didn't mean much back in those times. There really wasn't a "morality" concept at all, beyond primal instincts to survive by any means necessary.

It's all rather interesting to me. I've been researching morality a lot lately, for personal reasons. I'm interested in how sociopaths' brains are different from people who can genuinely feel empathy for others. I have some theories I'm working on. Spooky stuff because statistically they are everywhere.

Just so you know, Jerry had legal custody of Jamie for the past 10 years. He may not have been the sperm donor but he has definitely been her daddy.

There are much more terrible and horrific fates than the experience of rape. The word on the street is that there is a young man in Valliant who devotes an enormous amount of his time analyzing internet communications and placing curses upon those he deems worthy of reprimand. Beware.

Well miss Tiffanie got to scratch his back through the bars the other day! They are still deluding themselves and telling everybody he is getting out soon. Wonder if she was able to suck him off through the bars?
