A Few Personal Thoughts…

A Few Personal Thoughts…

When Jessica Lunsford was missing I worked for her family on their website and forum. I was there from day one till just before it closed. I’m not related. Just good friends with the family. I’m not going to tell any deep dark secrets here. So if that is what your looking for turn to another site. This is what I think, feel and know. So here it goes.

Can Jessie Get Justice? In my opinion no.

No matter what happens at the trial, what the judge let in and kept out, Jessie won’t be back. Will Couey be found guilty? Many say “Oh hell yes, everyone knows what he did!” But do they? I know many of you want to think that everyone in the USA knows who Jessica Lunsford is but the truth is, they don’t.

A lot of people never heard of John Couey, Citrus County Florida, Jessica’s Law or Mark Lunsford. In our own little perfect worlds we think “Everyone has heard his confession, they know what happened.” Sorry nope.

I firmly believe they will be able to find an impartial jury who doesn’t know a thing about this case, Florida or not. Switching counties will make a difference. Unless the prosecutor has some very strong, firm evidence, Couey will walk. And if he doesn’t walk the defense has a case for appeal already. What you ask?

Fruit from the poisonous tree. It is a legal term that means “anything discovered from one tainted piece of evidence can’t be used” So they need to prove inevitable discovery of Jessie‘s body, and I mean prove. If not everything found from Jessie can be fought in retrial. So inevitable discovery of Jessie MUST be proven or the mattress, DNA and other details will be worthless. And Couey will be a free man.

Not totally free, he will be a marked man. There are enough people who do know him and what he did to make him quake in his sandals. I can see a big red target now. His conscious will never bother him. He has been through this before with other children. As far as anyone knows Jessie is the first one he has murdered.

She will be the last.

So back to my original thought. Can Jessie Get Justice?

Only if we could turn back time and made sure Couey never got out of jail in the first place. No amount of locks, barking dogs, people in the house, rain or training would change what happened. It’s the Laws that need to not only be changed but ENFORCED!

Jessie is gone.

What justice can there be.

    This morning on one of the morning shows there was an interview with Mark Lunsford. He was asked if he was attending the trial and if he was prepared for the evidence that would be presented.

    It was interesting as he said that he has done nothing but talk about Jessica and what she went through so nothing anyone can say will suprise him.

    What is unreal to me is why the people who knew where she was were never prosecuted.

    Well that is a tricky explanation. See in the begining we were told since they couldn't prove the 3 people in the house knew she was there, nothing could be done. Then it was they were trying to get new legislation passed that would send them away,but if charged before the law was passed they wouldn't qualify.

    Now Couey said in statements (Not the confession) that they did know. So I would watch after that statement is made part of the trial transcripts. Could be some arrests then.

    I saw today where CourtTV is speculating that his confession could be excluded from his trial, but included in the punishment phase to show his "remorse", if convicted.

    It has been excluded from the trial. Also don't be shocked when the defence calls Mark. They already supienaed (sp) him. My take on that is to show no premeditation on Couey's part. That Jessie and the family were strangers to Couey. Sick people. Calling the father of the victim to help the slime that killed her.

    As you already know the trial was stopped. Thanks to the Media screwing up and talking about the case in earshot of the pool and the pool telling each other what they knew the Judge had no choice. Ever what to get out of Jury duty just discuss the case,and if someone has never heard of it and wants off too fill them in. Or wait the media will f@#ck it up without help.
