L.A. to pay $16,7 million to the man imprisoned for 34 years after wrongful murder convictions
Register, who won his freedom in 2013 after lawyers and students from Loyola
Law School cast doubt on the testimony of a key prosecution witness, will
receive $16.7 million.
who has always maintained his innocence, spent 34 years in custody after being
convicted of the 1979 armed robbery and murder of Jack Sasson, 78.
against Register was based on eyewitness testimony. No murder weapon was
recovered and none of the fingerprints lifted at the West Los Angeles crime
scene matched Register’s. Police seized a pair of his pants that had a speck of
blood on them, but the blood type matched both Sasson’s and Register’s.
Register’s girlfriend testified that he was with her at the time of the
prosecution witness in the case was Brenda Anderson, who told police she heard
gunshots and saw Register sprinting away from the scene. She picked him out of
a photo lineup, police said. But Anderson’s sisters said they told police that
her account wasn’t true.
papers, Sheila Vanderkam said she had tried to tell a detective that her sister
had lied about seeing Register flee. The detective, she said, put a finger to
his lips to convey that she should keep quiet. Another sister, Sharon Anderson,
also said in court papers that she had told police they had the wrong man, but
she too was ignored.
Anderson picked Register out of a photo array only after police threatened to
prosecute her for credit card forgery and a recent theft, promising to hold off
if she followed their instructions and identified someone, Register’s attorneys
later, Vanderkam typed Register’s name into the state’s Department of
Corrections website and discovered he was still imprisoned — a realization that
spurred her to find his attorney and launched a fresh examination of his case.
Register, now 55, was ultimately freed in November 2013.
and his attorneys said Tuesday they hoped his case would spur reforms at the
LAPD in the way eyewitnesses are asked to choose a suspect from a photo lineup.
Many experts argue that police should ensure that the detective who has a
possible suspect in mind is not involved at all or does not see which photo a
witness is choosing.
get these 34 years back, but I hope my case can help make things better for
others, through improving the way the police get identifications,”Register
said in a statement.
prison, Register missed the birth of his daughter and two grandchildren. At one
point in his incarceration, another inmate slashed his neck, his attorneys said
in his lawsuit. He now works in a warehouse for a large department store,
supporting family members.
almost 37 years, I am more than ready to try to put this all behind me and move
on with my life,” Register said.
lesson to all of us. We should not be scared of police and we must remember
that we live in the free country. No dumbass detective should tell us what to
do. If we have some information we must use it carefully. Brenda Anderson and
her sisters were not strong enough to help investigation and to save Register
whose innocence was almost obvious. The aftermath was terrible. But I’m not
blaming the citizens. The worst part of it all was made by detectives! The
latest events confirm that we are still living in the police state. This should
be changed! God bless Kash Register and his family. It would be fairer if
bastard detectives were forced to pay compensation to Register. Why the city
should do it?
BAN RYU AND SU YEON OWN ME! They are officially THE OTP of the whole show for me. During the first 3 minutes of their first meeting he gets molested and slapped by her, wrongfully accused of sexual harassment by the onlookers and almost killed by her brother, but then she protects him AND CARESSES HIS CHEEK WHERE SHE HIT HIM! OMG, THE WAY BAN RYU LOOKS AT SU YEON while she is touching him!It’s as if in that very moment she managed to touch his soul and stir his heart; as if she just turned his world upside down and his brain stopped functioning. It must feel like a sensory overload to him - Su Yeon flabbergasts him, captivates him and moves him like no one else; if there ever was such a thing as being laid low by love then it happened to Ban Ryu in this moment.
It’s awesome that the “coldest” guy actually ends up being an innocent puppy and the shiest of the whole Hwarang. He’s been trying to hide it behind the cold facade which also serves as his protection. But even more epic is that Ban Ryu has spent his whole life fighting with Su Ho, only to fall in love with THE FEMALE VERSION OF HIM because Su Yeon is so similar in appearance and character to her brother that it makes you wonder whether they are not twins;
they are complete opposites of his fucked-up family.In the end, it makes a complete sense that Ban Ryu would fall for her because she is so openly affectionate and caring while he’s so unused to being on the receiving end of tenderness, living in the household of his abusive adoptive father. And here suddenly comes this strange girl who incapacitates her brother to save his life and then lovingly caresses his cheek to soothe the pain she caused him!
This puzzle in Silent Hill 2 can be found towards the end of the Labyrinth and is based around people who were hung for crimes they committed. But there is one innocent person in the bunch!
When playing the game one will come across two of the rooms for this puzzle. One room will have nooses hanging and the other room will have corpses hanging with a description of the crime that lead them to being hung. However depending on the difficulty setting of the game, the riddle/ puzzle can become very difficult to figure out; meaning each puzzle varies and it can be irritating trying to figure out which individual is innocent.
When I played the game I had it on the normal setting, which contained a fairly easy puzzle/ riddle. This is the riddle that I got:
“Dead men, dead men, swinging in a tree How many dead men do you see? Tongue turned blue and face gone grey Watch them as they twist and sway
The first one killed the butcher man Then cooked him in the frying pan Served him to his hungry guests And gave them seconds on request
The next one with his smile and sweets Stole poor children off the streets To men who dressed unsavory He sold them into slavery
Breaking into home at night The thief he had a nasty fright Filled his foolish head with ale Woke in the morn in the county jail
The artist with his daunting skill Tried his hand at painting bills But caught in rain he was undone When the ink he’d use did start to run
With promises of great return Taking gold he did not earn Bundled it up out of sight Quietly slipped off into night
Three houses into ashes burned The sheriff with no place to turn Did spy a stranger in his town Locked him up and beat him down
Dead men, dead men, swinging in a tree How many dead men do you see? Six feet long and six men wide Round their necks the noose be tied.”
“I voted Trump because I’m tired of being called sexist, racist, homophobic, bigoted, and a million other things by the left!”
Being called racist will never be a comparable insult or harm to actual racism.
Being called sexist will never be a comparable insult or harm to actual sexism.
Being called homophobic, transphobic, or islamophobic will never be a comparable insult or harm to actually experiencing these things.
I don’t care if you’re wrongfully accused of being racist. I don’t care if it’s a “crazy sjw overreacting” and giving some bullshit rationale that you’re racist when you haven’t done anything wrong. It will never be as bad as when someone actually faces these issues.
Your personal “fuck you” to the liberals because somebody called you a bigot on a facebook debate is coming at the cost of legitimizing (and soon legislating) real, damaging, life threatening bigotry for women and minorities. Your vote for Trump shows that you think being safe from the “PC police” supercedes someone’s right to marriage, citizenship, religion, abortion, healthcare, and life. But even IF you want to show the left that you’re tired of being labelled with these “PC slurs”, your version of an anti-establishment vote involved voting one of the most sexist, racist, and otherwise bigoted “political” figures of modern American history. So way to shit the fucking bed on your one fucking goal while also putting minorities and women at risk for the next 4 years. I hope you’re enjoying snickering to yourself about how you really showed Hillary that you’re tired.
Kate Mckinnon, playing the role of a beautiful mob boss who makes men and women do whatever she wants because they are all in love with her. She is completely content with being the all powerful mob boss who cares about nobody until a girl accidentally stumbles into her on the street and she wrongfully accuses her of being a spy. She captures the girl and takes her for questioning and ends up recruiting her and they rule together with an iron fist, while also falling deeply in love. Until the authorities finally catch up to them and they know their time is up. They know the cops will kill them on sight so they share one last kiss as the doors open and they are shot down.
Some time back, I had an acquaintance who was wrongfully accused of heresy. The good man had a large family to feed. I leapt to his defense and he was proven innocent by tribunal combat. Later, I discovered he was in fact a heretic and used me to prove his innocence. I found him and ended his life. Since, I have been working as the hand of Halone, hunting down heretics where they try to hide. Now that the tides of politics have changed, I am no longer needed. I NEED to hunt. What do I do?
There will always be heretics and doers of evil.
