I hear ya brother.
In the podcasts I've heard, I don't remember hearing her talk. The Man in the Window has some detailed info about Bonnie, his college gf.
Speak for yourselves
According to the book I read that was released a couple years ago, CA has more people in death row than any other state and there’s not even a close second.
The book was quite poorly written so have very low hopes for this.
Congrats on reading a book shawn proud of u
I have read multiple books since stay at home orders started
That logic doesn’t always apply. I get it, but they get into a groove in there. Meals, outdoor time, nurses, phone calls, maybe visitors. He is coming to terms with finishing up his life there. If he was younger, he might be more suicidal.
Can’t wait for his defense attorney to talk after he dies.
Just irks me to no end that we're never going to get any explanation from this monster. I understand why the accepted the plea but they should've been able to atleast get some details out of this guy. Ugh.
I thought that was the deal. No death penalty (or trial) if he talks.
I have so many questions
Maybe he'll do an AMA on reddit
No one on death row has been killed in California since 2006.
I haven't seen anything stating that was part of the deal. Looks like he just agreed to admit to the additional rapes and assaults where the statute of limitations had passed.
And what did he get in return?
In general? taking the death penalty off the table and being spared from having to go through a trial/multiple trials. For admitting those specifically? I don't know.
You know, sounds like this guy was just misunderstood. Poor fella.
no death penalty?
I suppose that was an actual threat. Between trial(s), appeals, Cali, and his age in general I’m not sure it was an actual threat, but maybe I’m wrong. How old is he?
I mean I’m sure they offered him something for him to just admit guilt and this whole thing is over
Regardless of why he plead, even to crimes he isn’t charged, I hope they get him to open up and/or his defense lawyers get him to talk to them (and share with us once he dies). Although there is an argument that he doesn’t deserve any spotlight.
think we all are on the same page there, but going off the act he pulled in court pretending to be senile and frail I have my doubts we ever get that
Its total bullshit. According to the investigators he was riding his motorcycle, weaving in out of traffic, mowing his lawn, etc. just days before he was arrested. He's a liar through and through. When he was arrested in the 70's for shoplifting he faked a heart attack.
As much as we would like the details there is nothing that says he has to give it to us via a plea deal.
Just a picture of his penis would have sufficed
I read this and laughed because I couldn't help but think of this-
“I told you to stipulate to the facts before the plea damnit!”
faked the heart attack AND THEN fought with the cops when they arrived
Watching episode 1 now
I had not read in detail about Michelle McNamara and how she died.
About the series and Michelle:
Her article from '13:
I thought the first episode sucked. No offense and no respect to the dead but I could not care less about Michelle McNamara. That's pretty much what the miniseries is all about.
Let's get back to what really matters, the victims. Jane Carson-Sandler - total badass:
Her book is one of the best true crime books written and really helped bring back these crimes into the publics sphere. Very few books have made me scared to fall asleep.
Yeah, I've heard great things about the book but I was strictly talking about the series. Have you watched the first episode?
Bummer. My main criticism of the book was in focused too much on her when I really couldn't care less about going to premiers with Patton Oswalt, that there was an unsolved murder in her Chicago neighborhood, that her neighbors had a break-in one day, etc. etc.
Perhaps there are victims that don’t want to testify and re-open scabbed over wounds. Am I curious? For sure. But that’s not our business.
Pop up books don’t count
What’s the equivalent of the word racist but for books? Because that’s what you are
Some of these recounts of these rapes are just brutal. And the amount of rapes happening back then in Sacramento. Brutal
