A nightmare made real

with 3 comments

This story is a horror story that, just barely, has an okay ending. It’s worth reading, but it can make you uneasy.

Part 1: Accused of unspeakable acts

Part 2: Unexpected turn in the case

I’ve been watching A Touch of Frost and this seems very much like one of those episodes.

  1. This is a horrifying story of being falsely accused by a vindictive psychopathic ex, but I don’t understand why the police didn’t investigate this man’s alibi. Why was it left to a private investigator working for the defense? Aren’t the police supposed to conduct an investigation including looking for evidence that might provide an alibi? I thought that police needed more than one person’s word to lock someone up. Where is the investigative police work in this story?

  2. As you know, there’s a vast movement in this country to cut taxes. As a result, governments are strapped for revenue (lots of news about that), so government services are cut back more and more. That includes police: they don’t have the money to do the investigating, so now the accused must pony up money out of his/her own pocket to pay for investigative efforts to clear them.

    Look at the from the point of view of the police: If the guy goes to prison, they’ve closed a case, the statistics look good, the woman’s off their back, the newspapers relent, and the guy—well, lots of people in prison say that they’re innocent.

  3. This is a Budget cuts classic in a bankrupt state….wonder how much money he will make from the movie rights ? I am surprised there’s not a Prime Time movie in the works already…
