No, not trying to beat up the police. I simply said they need to know EXACTLY what address they areRead More supposed to be raiding and go to that address, not mistakenly raid the wrong place. Of course I don't have proof that "they knew it was the wrong house" and I did not say that they did know. My point, again, is they need to know exactly what the address of the house is that they are raiding. These raids on the wrong houses occur over & over. Do some research before you try to put others down, Igor. Just for starters, here are places where they went to the wrong address: Longview, TX; DeKalb Co, GA; Dayton, OH; Salt Lake City, UT; Kalamazoo, Mich; Minneapolis, Minn; St Paul, Minn; Galveston, TX; Berwin Hgts, MD; Miami, FL; Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Crown Hgts - All NYC, NY; Evansville, IN; and the list goes on. Don't want to believe me, try googling "Police raid wrong house" or go to and article by Radley Balko-S.W.A.T. Overkill. Now, about that money you want to bet me?

PS Octo, I could really care less what this crazy web page reports, doesn't report, or even if itRead More stays in business another week. My point is simply if we are going to write a story about a business being ripped off to the tune of 800k wouldn't it be reasonable to include the name of the business? I mean like that's not a key part of the story of a pilfering ex office manager? In the end we have a woman thats going to do a heap of time and a president who is the biggest criminal the country has ever known eating 90/lb beef at the White House. We have bigger issues all the way round.

We are now at the part of the case where the info starts leaking out. The jury pool is already soRead More contaminated the trial will have to be moved to another county. The wife and husband both admitting to searching for a hot car death scenario also makes this just look 1000 times worse. Even if, by some miracle, these people are innocent then they very well may be screwed by Google right out of the gate. There is just too much coincidence here to believe. At the end of the day the whole case is just a complete waste. If they did forget then what is the country coming to when college grads can't look after kids. If the guy/wife killed the kid, then that's even worse. It's a sad commentary on American life.

I wonder how stupid his supporters feel. from Day 1, I knew this guy was involved in some way. AtRead More the very least, I thought he was mentally off with some major depression issues because anyone who drives a mere 2 miles after tucking his son in cannot forget his son for an ENTIRE 7 hour DURATION without even once during the day thinking "oh damn, I forgot to go to the day care center" and this is before I even knew the fact that he intentionally took a slightly different route to bypass the day care center. Now, the only question is how guilty is the wife. Based on testimony, she merely guessed correctly that happened withtout any instinct to call her husband right away to see what happened. So she is guilty of something. What that is we will know with more facts. Is she a mere follower that is weak minded and was groomed by this psycho the way he is targeting 16 year olds to sext him? Or is she part of this plot in a participative manner where she gives him her consent to kill the son?

Excellent comment, Elizabeth, Elizabeth (6/27/14 @ 5:11pm)! Many people have no clue of the denial,Read More fear, manipulation, mixed signals and parental devotion tied into situations such as this. A dependent child (doesn't even matter that they're in their early teens and sometimes, older) brought up in an environment that is relatively "normal," are hard pressed to go to authorities or authority figures, when something "bad" happens at home; especially if they've been convinced that a sibling or other individual in the home, has somehow hurt, shamed or violated the home and/or parents in some way! Culture can also come into play in situations like this. To all who are looking for someone to "blame," please read "A Child Called It" by Dave Peltzer. It provides a chilling look into the mindset, sickness and aftermath of homes like that of the Wimbush family, and the many people (child welfare departments, churches, family members, school systems and others), who knowing and unknowingly collude to enable these situations to descend into such a demoralizing and unfathomable, abyss.
