Blogger problems? w/Update

Anyone else having problems with Blogger? I just lost all comments since 8/5 on at least one thread. They were there yesterday and are gone today.

It isn't. And I'll see what can be done to fix this. 9:50 - still NO COMMENTS posting to that thread. Tried a few test comments. Each time it seems to unlock one of the older ones that is missing. Hopefully Blogger will solve this one soon.

BTW - they did fix the weird SPAM thing, whenever you tried to log on, it would throw up a SPAM message.We have now restored all accounts that were mistakenly marked as spam...

(Incidentally, trying a new Gadget in the sidebar for Recent Comments - seems to be more timely than Bloggers.)

Did you forget that she is the third woman to make this exact claim against Gundersen? And then there is the matter of the nude pictures of these women when they were unconscious. I have no doubt that reasonable people won't have any trouble knowing the difference between consensual sex and rape of unconscious women.

412 has strong feelings, but not for things like the presumption of innocence, due process, victims rights, or prosecutorial integrity, conflicts of interest,
consistency in the application of the laws, or professional competence. Nope, 412 has it all figured out. No need for a trial, just have 412 read the T/S and the
E/R, and pronounce guilty.
Tell me 412, what was your take on
the PALCO suit? How about Debbie August? Where were you on the Garza boys? Was the DA's handling of that one up to par? Who enabled young Mr. Garza to continue to abuse his minor girlfriend? The girl? Or PVG/yougo?
oh, sorry, you don't like to be bothered with other cases, do you. History is so awkward, all those facts, records, witnesses, transcripts. Better to stick to the newspapers.

And if 412 could enlighten us about the Rape Crisis subpoena fiasco, that would be good. Since RC did not do what PVG wanted, does that mean they are facilitating rape? Any strong feelings there, genius?

One case is severed, 4:45. So what evidence is there? And what does it show? That he had a weakness for women who take sleeping pills? That he drugged them all? That he was a sleeping pill pusher? That their doctors' shouldn't have prescribed those pills?

I don't know. You could convince me they had a dysfunctional relationship, even a massively unhappy marriage. But lots of people have them. Some people get in horrific fights and then make up - and that's their pattern. Lots of women have lots of complaints against their husbands, complaints they'll talk about all day long to friends and co-workers, but they'd be shocked to the max if all of a sudden the spouse was arrested.

Is that what happened here? Who knows. Sounds like she talked about it on occasion, even with some of those people. Maybe she trusted them to just listen. Then it all blew out of control.

And you still have the ex-wife's representation to address.

Regardless, she has taken a no holds barred, not uncertain stand. She has sent her complaint to the Attorneys' General. That is surely not something one does lightly.

The AG's office is going to look at her various statements and sworn testimony and say something polite but essentially that there is nothing of substance in her complaint. As to the "ex-wife's representation to address," there is nothing there either. Joan Gallegos isn't representing the ex-wife now. Do the ex-husband's of her clients receive a get away with rape card because of her representation?

She either lied in the preliminary hearing under oath (perjury) or she is lying now, not under oath. She is just looking for money. It wouldn't surprise me if she had this planned all along.

Ok fine she's nuts, she's out for money, she perjured herself, whatever dude. So, PVG filed this case based solely on the word of a person whose credibility his supporters are now vigourosly attacking. Alternatively, he filed this case and somehow managed to so completely alienate his star witness that she is very publically disavowing this prosecution and in particular this prosecutor. Cluster may not be an adequate term anymore.

I don't think that is going to make this go away, sweetie.

You are the NUT. I have said over and over that I am not a Gallegos supporter. Why do you have to put everyone into the pro or con Gallegos box? This is a very complex legal case that you are attempting to make about supporting or opposing the DA. It may come as news to you, but everyone doesn't decide cases based on their love or hate of the DA like you do. Some of us are more concerned about getting rapists in prison where they belong. You disgust me.

I think we can all agree that putting rapists in prison where they belong is a worthy goal. If that is the case, then, 7:28, perhaps you should ask yourself whether PVG is the man you want in charge of that in Humboldt, given the circumstances of this case.

Oh, it's a complex case, alright. That conflict of interest alone is a real doozy.

PVG is the DA today. I don't care whether he or somebody else is doing the job. Reading this blog is sickening with the obsession and obvious desire for everyone to get off no matter how henious their crimes just because you hate PVG. You people are sick. Making up shit about conflicts of interest because his wife used to represent the exwife of the rapist is insane. That crazy Seals woman is probably reading this blog to figure out what she should lie about next. DISGUSTING!

815. You are obtuse. It's getting criminals off that is the problem with the current DA. That and the total loss of integrity.The point of this blog, fromt the beginning up to the present, is that PVG is not an effective law enforcement officer. If he was, he would still have the best small DA's office in the state.

It is the schizophrenic nature of who he chooses to prosecute that is part of the problem, 8:15. It is the record of trying cases in the public. It is the record of plea bargains when there should be prosecutions and vice versa. It's a record of plagiarism, of filing cases - or charges - that shouldn't be filed, just because.

It's a record of losing top talent, losing grants, losing employees, killing programs, missing meetings, refusing to work with others...

It's a record of secrecy and spin. A record of letting people into the office who weren't hired, people like Salzman and Schectman...

And as for Gundersen - it is something that hasn't been 'right' about this case from the very beginning - and that may be because of Gallegos' known antipathy towards law enforcement, or it may be for some other reasons - history with Hislop, the ex-wife's attorney being Gallegos' wife - we don't exactly know - but alot of us can see PROBLEMS here.

And they're blowing up all over the front page of the paper, right where Gallegos put them.

This blog is full of lies and inaccuracies. This thread alone has so many misrepresentations it is appalling. When you have the facts on your side you don't have to make shit up. Either you people are mentally retarded or evil. With people like you opposing him, no wonder PVG keeps winning.

And this blog is here, open for discussion, so that you can correct any lies or inaccuracies.

Comments threads often go off on tangents, rumors get aired, and either proven or disputed, as was the case early on with the fact that Gallegos' wife represented the ex- Mrs. Gundersen in an ongoing and bitter custody dispute.

That turned out to be true.

Other rumors get proven false. That's what it is about.

And, the problem, 9:15, is that it is not about 'winning.' It is about doing a good job ONCE you win. It is about honor and integrity and respect for the office and for the people whose office it is.

Filing and pursing the Palco case on behalf of special interests showed an utter lack of integrity and respect for the people, and the law, and the office. And that was just the beginning.

You have been the main perpetrator of the lies here. You posted that Seals got the idea that her husband was raping her from the investigators but that was contradicted by her own preliminary hearing testimony that she had told Gundersen he was raping her and to stop. Your lack of integrity by spreading these lies to attack PVG proves you are worse than he is. You have claimed that she hasn't changed her story when any fool can read her many different accounts and see where she has changed it drastically. Your zeal to smear PVG has blinded you to reason and your obsession is taking its toll on your mental health. The only people who take you seriously are mentally retarded fools like yourself and those who hope to gain politically from your smears from an anonymous position where they can't be blamed for libel. The lot of you are disgusting!

Really? Well. Time, and the published record will tell.

Look, Gallegos may be a very nice guy. He can go back into private practice, and you can hire him next time you need legal help.

He's so great, you'll be lucky to have him, right?

Or, he can get on the EPIC, ERF stable of attorneys. They'd love to have him, right? Because he is so sharp and all. Probably pays better than the gig he has now.

“no wonder PVG keeps winning.” 8/06/2008 9:15 AM? - you were kidding right?
He has lost consistently

Palco
August
Marsh
Dowdy
Garza
Ogeara
those just popped into my mind. there are a lot of other cases that I remember the facts about from reading in the paper.
Oh - and I am not even mentioning the cases that he could only get misdemeanors or lesser convictions because he couldn't competently present the evidence like the Bridgeville murder case he punted on.

and this isn’t even mentioning the destruction of all specialties (sex cases, sex registrants, homocide, environmental, elder abuse) in that office.
Nor the plea bargains - I especially remember the one where a guy was on parole for numerous drug sale priors and came up here from SoCal with over 3 pounds of heroin hidden in hidden compartments in his car. Confessed to making numerous runs a year for millions of dollars for a SoCal drug lord. Guy faced over 20 years and got a parole revocation for 3 years. Pretty lame and pretty indicative of the screw ups that you are trying to defend 9:15.

you know there is not enough room here to print it all, but what I can say is that you seem to know a little 9:15 and have chosen to deliberately try and spin it to justify Gags’ incompetence. Could be you are right and you don’t care for Gags. Could also be that you are not being honest with us. But really, saying that he wins consistently would be a lie. If you want to go there be prepared to deal with all of the loses, the lost cases, programs and lawyers and then deal with the lies to the public and victims as well as the plaigarism.

Please list the so-called "lies" that Rose has been spreading.

Be specific.

Regarding JD#1 and the idea that Rose "lied" about her getting the idea of rape "from the investigators", remember this JD has been all over the place with her story.

List more lies...we are waiting.
Why do I get the feeling that we will be waiting quite awhile?

By winnning, 915 means elected office, methinks.
As for Rose being "worse" than PVG? Interesting. Did Rose run for office on the promise that the DDA's deserved job protection? Did Rose take an oath to uphold the laws and Constitution of the State and the Nation? Is Rose obligated to prosecute without fear or favor?

One could go on and on, but perhaps even to 915 and his ilk, it should be obvious that elected officials have responsibilities, private citizens have rights. Some of them are protected by the First
Amendment.

ok 9;15 - here is another example of Gallegos's losses: The Kidnaping and Robbery at the sequioa zoo.

Well, Estrada-chavez who was the defendant was originally charged with a violation of 209(b)(1) - kidnaping to commit robbery, 211 - robbery, assault with a firearm. The sentence on the kidnaping for robbery alone is life in prison. So our lazy DA changes it to kidnaping under 207 and makes him plea to kidnaping and robbery in order to avoid sending him to prison for life in exchange for a light sentence which will have him out in less than 6 years.

That’s right 9:15 - such a win. And your "boy" who is supposed to follow the law and apply it equally chooses to ignore the people and ignore the legislature that made this a life offense.

Maybe if Estrada Chavez had been run over by the victim or a witness, who could then have been immunized, there could have been a trial.
