On "DateLine:ID" tonight, the 2nd show was about a guy who is apparently innocent, even to the untrained eye. There was NOT one shred of evidence against him to prove he was at the scene of the crime, yet NY cops and DA took 4 known druggies' line up pointing of fingers. The "main" druggie even walked out of the station with his 10 bags of heroin after fingering the guy in the lineup.

He's been in jail for 10 years now and is trying to get a new trial. Attorney says after you have been convicted of a crime, it is almost impossible to get a new trial. This is "justice" gone so friggin' wrong! As soon as the mainn drug dealer fingered the 22 yr old kid, the search for "Mustafa" stopped. I'm willing to bet "Mustafa" is the real killer. This "guilty murder" didn't even know the guys who fingered him!

Hey, (mod cut) if you are reading this, see, I am outraged about this kind of traverse "justice" too. The "kid" (he's 32 now) is still behind bars so far. My phone rang and didn't see the very end. I think he is waiting on N Y to grant him a new trial.

Sorry guys, I didn't mean to get that other thread closed....just meant maybe we should move on and hopefully minus ourselves one.

I just watched the Dateline on Susan Powell and I'd like to make some sort of apology about the 911 operator. I STILL think he played it all wrong and it was torture to hear all those inane questions he asked but I'd like to say I feel really sorry for the guy. He was no rookie but I think he mishandled that call from the get-go. He knows it too and that's why I feel sorry for him.

My apologies for engaging nonsense. I enjoy your posts and POV.

Anybody recall the book A Stranger In The Family, the story of Richard Daniel Starrett, who answered "For Sale" ads in the newspapers. He'd rent a car for the weekend, and go to people's houses who were advertising household goods for sale in Georgia and South Carolina, looking to kidnap, rape, murder victims?

One case clearly stood out, where he went to a particular house where some furniture was being listed for sale in the paper. The owner, a mother, had just left the house instructing her teenage daughter to not let anyone into the house until she returned, advice she neglected.

So, he arrives at the house, and this teenager was so spellbound, charmed by this man, in her mind, she looked upon him as her long-sought after Knight in Shining Armor, and it was love at first sight!

After an intense, short love affair, he killed her!

But this book has spooked me anytime I decide to sell something via the newspaper or Craigslist, that there are people out there doing this!

No, I have not read that book, but I will. I read the book about Ted Bundy, "Stranger Within", and that book really creeped me out, how he pretended to have a broken arm, and need help carrying books to his car, that is totally something I would do in a heartbeat, and not think the guy was a psychopath.

I have never sold anything on CL. I am not comfortable with strangers coming to my home. I read that when police counted how many people had access to Elizabeth Smart's home, it was in the 100's. With workers, friends, church people, I could not believe it. I can count on one hand how many people have been in my home in the last six months.

There is nothing I own to sell anyway, worth being raped or killed over. Forget it. I will call Salvation Army, what you give away comes back to you in blessings.

I used to read all the time. I have become less of a reader...

author Ann Rule wrote articles on Ted Bundy...she worked with him on a suicide prevention hotline in Seattle in the 1970's!! I forget the title of the book, but she said he was very intelligent and well-spoken, a charmer.

The Stranger Beside Me - a very, very good book.

I got hurt on the job 4 1/2 years ago, and even though I live about 120 miles from Seattle, all my doctor/surgeon/specialist appointments took place in Seattle in the University District - Bundy's stomping grounds.

I recognized several of the street names from the book.
