Dine-and-Dashers Abduct, Assault Waitress Who Tried to Stop Them, NJ Police Say
"I was just reading about something that happened in turnerville, New Jersey, Washington township. And this is going to get me in trouble for saying this. Because we need to have a serious conversation about race in America. When Joe Biden talks about the thugs at the at the capitol on January 6th, what about all the violence we're seeing in the streets of America today? Chicago. How about Saturday at the nifty 50s, in turnerville, New Jersey? Police are searching for the suspects caught on surveillance video who are believed to be involved in the attack. Now, there's no mention of the suspect's race. No mention of the waitress is race. Here's what happened. There was a table of 5 customers who were attempting to skip out on their $70 bill at this diner. And the waitress sees it. And she goes out into the parking lot to try to confront the 5 suspects. They abducted the 20 year old, they dragged her into the car and they beat her. Mercilessly. The vehicle headed north on route 42, made a U turn was headed north south toward Monroe township, and then they pushed her out of the vehicle. Somehow she was in killed. She was beaten badly. Because she's a hardworking young woman trying to make a living waiting tables. Now, I'm reading this article, and I'm wondering, why is there no descriptive descriptor of the suspects? Well, we know the answer to that. The media never identifies black suspects anymore as being black suspects. And yeah, these suspects are black. And she's white. Now, I don't know that bad people are bad people. Criminals are criminals. But we do see a dish proportionate percentage of crime being committed in the streets of America by black Americans.

Park in Pelosi's District Slated to Receive $200M
"So what is the deal? I'm gonna have a column up at The Washington Post shortly on Nancy Pelosi, $200 million for the presidio park. What is the deal with that, Jake? How in the world does someone justify $200 million for your neighborhood park? Well, it is a very nice park, but you're right. I actually have not completely seen how they how in the text it directs the money to the presidio park, whether it makes the presidio park eligible for the funds or as you know you, but many people don't know sometimes in the era of note earmarks, sometimes language is written that only makes one entity eligible like it says for parks that include X Y and Z and our of a certain size. But yes, I mean, listen, this is the power of being a congressional leader, right? I mean, we saw how Rogers used to do this when he was the appropriation share used to shuffle lots of money to Kentucky and Shelby Richard Shelby of Alabama does the same thing for Alabama. But you're absolutely right. It's something that people are outraged about.

Self-Censorship Is the Most Powerful Form of Censorship
"So let's talk first about censorship. So Dennis and prager you did a great job. They're Google lawsuit. They were way ahead of the curve by the way. They tried to warn everyone that Google was going to shut everyone up. And people took them seriously, but not enough people, and then next thing you know, Donald Trump gets kicked off YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, all in one day, and it's kind of, I told you so, right, Dennis, it was one of those things. And we kind of have a separate government that exists in our country, one that we elect and one that is technocratic and one that is headquartered in Silicon Valley and in Menlo Park. So I could get into that form of censorship. I could also talk about the former censorship that exists on college campuses, whether it be the administration or antifa, and all that. But the type of censorship that I think is actually most helpful to talk about is one that every single person in this room participated, which is when we shut ourselves up. Self censorship has become the biggest form and most powerful form of censorship. Now, it's not only we don't shut ourselves up because we always want to, it's largely because we're afraid of the price or the cost associated with speaking up. And a great example of this is when people say Charlie, what can I do? And I asked them, I say, at work or with your Friends, are you allowed to express your political or religious or moral beliefs? And a vast majority of the people that listen to my show say no. I say, well, then you are not free. I said, let's just start there. You know, instead of you running for governor or whatever, what you're all great things and say, why don't you next time at your lunch break, tell the people around you how you view the world like Charlie, I can't do that. I mean, I'll lose my job, I'll be ridiculed. I'll be marked. I'll be smeared. So, of course you will be. So why won't you do it? And that's really the issue, isn't it? And this has been one of the genius moves to the left is that they are able to hold hostage our decadence to use a great word. Our lifestyle our luxury over us. We have a great life here in America and conservatives know they have a great life. And it's actually this very interesting thing. It's this inverse relationship, and I love Dennis thoughts on this. Because conservatives are more thankful to be an American and thankful for what they have. I think we're also more afraid to lose

Debunking the Case Against Kyle Rittenhouse With Jack Posobiec
"With us as a friend of mine and I think you could call him the resident Catholic contributor. He's a godly man. He's patriotic courageous. You know him as Jack pass sobic from human events daily brought to you by turning point USA. Jack, there's a lot I want to talk to you about. Good to see you. And but let's start with kind of how your honorable fixation has honestly made me more interested and let's say fixated on the Kyle rittenhouse story. A lot of our listeners don't have a lot of they're not really aware of what's happening. This is not being covered as much as the Floyd saga. Let's start from the beginning. What happened? Who is Kyle rittenhouse? What is he charged with? Just start from the beginning and then we'll work through the current. Yeah, sure, no, thanks, Charlie, and appreciate the intro there. So what happened with Kyle rittenhouse? You have to go back to the summer of rage of 2020. Florida palus. Right. That was exactly. That was peppered throughout with these ubiquitous protests during the day and then riots looting arson at night. And in one of the cities, actually a small city called Kenosha, Wisconsin about an hour north of Chicago about an hour south of Milwaukee right in between. Following the police shooting of a criminal named Jacob Blake, who charged a police officer with an extended knife. There were multiple nights of rioting, looting and arson, the descendant upon this town from people who, by the way, mostly, were not actually from Kenosha Wisconsin. They were again, as I mentioned from Milwaukee and Chicago. This is in between them. And so on night three of this, you've got people that are scared out of their minds in the community. You've got people and we heard this in jury selection that were going into the local churches with their families to say, maybe if we go in here, we'll be safe because hopefully they won't attack a church. That's how bad it got in the village of Kenosha that night by night three. So Kyle rittenhouse was at the time 17 years old. He was about 15 minutes away, drove in with his friend and some others who had been asked to be there. To help protect the town, Kyle worked as a lifeguard in Kenosha. He had also been around there earlier that day, scrubbing off graffiti from the walls, right? By all intents and purposes we know that this is a guy who was there who cares about his hometown of use this as his hometown and wants to do the right thing doesn't like to see these roving bands of marauders coming through this. Well, as the night continues, the Nike continues Kyle's there. He's trying to offer medical aid to people on both sides, by the way, running around saying, does anyone need medical? Does anyone need this? He does have an AR-15 style rifle in order to defend himself. But for the most part of the night, he's not carrying that is kind of strapped on, but he's carrying a fire extinguisher to help put out fires at this car lot, as car dealership that has been attacked by these arsonists. So at one point, he hears about a car lot that's going off. This is a business that is multiple lots around town. So he's running to go put out the fire while carrying a fire extinguisher. Multiple members of this mob see him target him and begin chasing him through the street and then through the parking lot and at one point we just saw an HD footage today for the very first time. One of the assailants actually reaches for his gun after cornering tile in between a group of parked cars and at that point Kyle take steps to defend himself.

Virginia's Suzanne Youngkin Is Glenn's Secret Weapon
"Virginia is not going the way of California. It did not fall off the blue cliff. Last night is turnout surged across the Commonwealth. I was texting with friends in my old state of California saying please, please please don't become California. And in fact, Lennon, embraced a new model. Be competent, be courageous. Big candid with voters. Be calm. Most of all, be a constitutional conservative. Glenn junkin was and he won. Suzanne junkin is his little known but very effective weapon. I met susanne at my early voting polling place when I went weeks before the election to vote and she was out there working the polls. Here she is last night Suzanne young and the new First Lady elect of Virginia. I love you, like, look at all these women. You all were amazing. Incredible. Incredible.

I do want to give a shout out to the more than 27 thousand women. That were part of women for Glenn. Incredible. Incredible. You inspired me and sustained me and you girls rock.
The Real Reason Why More Young Women Are Getting Sterilized
"Humans are a mistake New York Post says why young women are getting sterilized. Rachel diamond looks like most of the moms at the pork slope park slope cafe where we meet. She's wearing a green T-shirt under a black corduroy jumper. Sensible shoes and carries a smart leather bag. She sips a $4 iced chai tea latte. Except the 31 year old is in a mom, and she never will be. You know, she said, I never expected to be the poster child of sterilization. One on the aspiring actress TikTok, one finds short funny videos. Diamond job working to register the cafe near Union Square and updates on her rescue pit bull. Ru who has an anemia. Oh, but she likes dogs but not humans. Interesting. So in 5 months and she's had her fallopian tubes cut, not tied, and she is 64,000 followers. She's done videos such as sterilization. Being child free, we do know what we're missing. She says, looking back, I never pretended that my American girl dolls were children. They were always my sisters. They were little things showing that I wasn't pretending myself for motherhood. I think for me, it's as innate as saying I've always wanted to be a mom. Diamond is hardly an outlier. Americans are making fewer babies than we've seen since starting to keeping tracks of the 1930s, and some women like diamond are not just pulling putting off pregnancy, but eliminating the possibility of it altogether. Last year, the number of deaths exceeded the number of births in 25 states. Up from 5 the year before, the marriage rate is also at an all time low. At 6.5 marriages per 1000 people. Millennials are the first generation where a majority are unmarried about 56%. They're also more likely to live with their parents, according to pew than previous generations were in their 20s and 30s. Humans are a mistake the New York Post, right? Now they don't believe it. They're just actually they wrote a really good article. And I like the New York Post. There are also the most sexless generation in American history, the number of young men who admit they've had no sex in the past year has tripled between 2008 and 2018. Cities like New York were young secular Americans flocked to build their lives are increasingly childless in San Francisco. There are more dogs than children. Let me say it again. In San Francisco, there are more dogs than children and the explanation of this is so easy. The more secular your country becomes, why have children? If you don't believe in a transcendent order or in God, what's the point? They're an

One except for a sex scene where she is writing willem defoe and you can see his dick on youtube. That's that's important. I i mean especially as like a gate youth. I mean that's what i used to this. That was like my coming of age. Except when i was coming of age like you had to download like pixelated images from the internet of leg. Lee leonardo dicaprio's that in that like one movie heated where he played. I can't remember the name of the movie. But i totally clips. Yes totally clips yes. I think it's totally one. But i remember the day pag. I don't even know if i saw a va. quite frankly. I think. I really was just in it for the slowly downloading j. pag online according to fifteen year olds. I'm telling you that was the time that news with spence. Yeah you had to delay that. Gratification law i gotta dial up ao l. connection. Yeah it was just like an army. Parents gonna come home before leo cras downloading it. Yeah it was. You know there was a lot. More attention involves back in the day question. No question about that back when you were fifteen. When you weren't downloading a japex leo. What were you up to. Who were you in high school. What was your sort of social scene. Yes while i came out when i was thirteen years old. Wow as as anyone listening can probably tell there is like it's very hard to put this inside a closet lake. He's just loud and gay. Honey on has since the beginning to be and so. I came out at thirteen and i was. I was go at the time. I was going to a very conservative. Prep school hold worcester academy and i was the quote unquote only person. There but like a little definitely wasn't but for all the perks that was actually very scary. that's kind of. Yeah i mean there were like there were these like have thirteenth grade. We've heard of this There was a whole yes. They do it in canada. Yeah well we weren't. Canada was in parts of new england. Yeah it's so weird it's called the pg here. It's basically like if you didn't get the athletic scholarship you wanted and your grades really shouldn't like you're just basically try to twelfth grade again but they call it postgraduates make it seem like you're basically not being held back twelfth grade anyway. There were some like horrifically. Homophobic jocks in the pg year. And i remember getting bullied and named hall like threatened them the Cafeteria and then one day. My friends a hara talk to the lesbian gym teacher who. I'm not actually sure if she was a lesbian but she just seems like a less shoes code. Yes oh sorry. She was the science teacher. Not computer sorry Problematic stereotypes making this gym teacher. A lesbian i've no. She was a science teacher and and she came up to me and she was like. Is this boy giving you trouble There's one who is particularly bad. And i was like yeah. He is and then the next week we had an assembly on acceptance of gay people. And i was the only gay person in school. But let me tell you. I don't know what that lesbian science teachers said to that boy but he never so much as looked again and so this is why we love our lesbian sisters. I mean thank god for her. What does that assembly look like. Who's speaking what's going was. I wanna stay. It was like a group of faculty that had come together. It was like. I think it was a larger school assembly that was just like you know announcements etc like every week but there is a special section. I was not name but it was just made the brought to everyone's attention that we need to be accepting of all people especially their case so yeah so that was but then but then after a couple years and then finally in tenth grade. That was a grade so eighth and ninth grade. I was in this conservative. Prep school in radio into this fabulous principle called walnut hill school which was a boarding school for the arts and that was just like gay. Sleep away camp. Honey that was like fabulous so like that was like from night and day. And finally i got to dislike you. Know get the f out and lake live my truth and like i was a theater major because everyone had liked their majors and like i did the only time like i would get in trouble for like i once like i made i was student body president and i once like made a crop top out of our lake leadership t shirts for like lake leadership orientation and i was told to put on a new chart because crops like us weren't accessible step to now but i feel like now every day is wearing pathak so honestly i feel like i was a trailblazer and that was phobia oppression. That was the voice of oppression. Exactly i was like i used to be able to express myself however i want. I did raked address that there was a light dress code and included sleeveless t shirts. But like again. I was trashy i had the worst. Fascists were painted on people jeans tight sleeveless t shirts and so i do remember regularly breaking the dress. Code for sleeveless t-shirts and i think they just kind of let that go but when i did do the belly shirt that was like one step too far and other you're at walnut hill and you're living your truth. Did you have boyfriends. Or what was going on dating ways. I did well. I started out. I mean i. I started dating in high school. Not really but there was. There was someone who had graduated the year before who is going to manhattan schools for music. Like he was like living in new york and like i met him. He like lived in massachusetts. He came back to visit his friends. Were selling campus. And so i thought he was like so glamorous does he like lived in new york city had just graduated from all hills. So that was my first wife reds. When i was fifteen. And i would lie to my parents and say it was going to my friend's house for the weekend and like get my friends to basically call in pretending to be their parents. I don't know it was like this elaborate thing that i could get permissions because because they would let you go like on the train for example like into boston so i would go like into boston. On the train. Hop on a greyhound and take the weekend. Go to new york in. Visit my freshman in college way of my god. It was what it was. Like so i was convinced i was love. It just kind of tragic like all high school romances already. Do you know what i mean like. You think it is the end of the world. And the fact that i was going to new york i was bad. I love going to marry. Like i thought like found out i was like this is it. But like a spoiler. Didn't end up working out as it turns out being in a long distance relationship with freshmen in college. When you are a sophomore in high school is difficult. And so that was my That was my freshman year your college or high school with as bendel a crap. Yeah yeah he yeah. He was doing drag in high school and like we. Actually we reconnected. Since i ran into him in province town like last summer with gas and like we like reconnected. And like you have a working on post vaccine reconnection by adore bad. He's like such as goody. So talented he randomly went heights. Was doing drag back install. You really did go to gay paradise of into a lucky. I mean it was like a very formative experience for me for sure. Yeah and like. It's a rare thing to for a man to be able to fifteen when he's fifteen. Yeah no exactly. Yeah you know. And not when he's thirty exactly actually a real adolescence as gay. Yeah yeah because when you were saying how high school romances are. I'm not really. I don't know. I didn't have those until many years later. But when you were then leader yourself a freshman in college you find yourself looking back at that relationship and imagining dating a sophomore. Well actually it's weird freshman year of college or still kind of in high slow like actually my freshman year of college. I had a boyfriend who is one year younger than me. My senior year of high school and he was a junior. And so we tried to stay.

I mean our Kudos to our department of transportation and infrastructure they also closed literally roads that people dry gone to get to and from places You know in recognition that people needed to be able to get outdoors Close by and to be able to walk and just be outside and so all of us together are really pondering. Now how do we learned from that experience. How many of those closures can we keep. How how can we continue to provide that kind of nearby access to being outdoors Whether it's in a park or literally a nearby street the you know that You know people can access and so we've just been involved in a a a planning process to determine which roads we could continue to keep close. And i'm happy to say we. We've realized that we can do that. With many of our roads on the other hand we've talked about access issues in recognize that not everybody can walk to a park in many of our families and particularly with our large regional parks that have more amenities in a in a small neighborhood. Part might have that providing access to You know families that can't walk to those facilities is important And and certainly providing ada access to people and so we know that our parks serve a very very diverse population with lots of different access needs. And so it's a balance we wanna keep some of the roads closed in provide more park space but we also wanna make sure that we have a good access for families to picnic you And you know families in need to bring a car load of kids to large regional playground to To have fun and or to see a lake not all of our parks lakes so we just wanna be sure that we are providing the equitable access to all of our facilities as the parent of a ten year.

"Initially, they said the burn pattern showed that accelerate was used in the fire, but based on new science. They were able to debunk that and she had been exonerated, so it does. Give hope but a lot of these arson cases if there is a question of an accelerate. Those cases the ones that are being overturned more in other words if Joannes. Of accelerate, she would be in better shape. That's all I have Meghan. I wonder what your thoughts are well first of all. I have a question. Do you think that these arson cases have gained a lot of momentum since they executed Duma for the execution of Cameron Todd Willing Half Yeah. That was I think two thousand four I'm not sure, but you know. He was executed and there was real substantial. I mean his is thought of as a lot. People believe that he was wrongfully executed. So do you think that's the innocence? Projects are taking on more cases in light of his execution. I think it's probably his execution along with all of this new science that is now coming out. Okay, those two together. I'm happy to see that it's getting more attention, but it's. It's tricky, because not like DNA a lot of these exonerations, if DNA. DNA is found. And then they retested and it matches someone else, right? That's a slam dunk. These cases are not so black and white, but even DNA. Cases are hard and they take time, and they're the first ones in line. You know this. It sounds like almost arson, cases or next in line. Yeah, it sounds to me like she was condemned. Almost for being like you know the through the Gender Lens. Bad mother equals murderers and. Condemned for that reason without knowing without knowing everything here, though based on what you told me, I mean it sounds like there was substantial at least reasonable doubt as to whether or not she was involved in him. Can you imagine mourning the loss of your three children and also being convicted of their murder? It's just incomprehensible now it's it's not so again. Can you remind people what they can do? Like? You said you can share a story, but there is there a petition? Also you said Amy, so. If you go to the California Innocence Project, website. You should be able to find a link that will bring. Bring you to some language, if you want to write to the California governor, but honestly in today's Day and age, even tweeting at the governor or you know on social media, just showing support again. The governor has the power to grant. Joanne Parks Clemency I know. I know of a case now.

"So you know basically the report concludes that the investigators and the jury were misled by bad science. They even say possibly by no science at all. While it sounds unscientific, the original song sorry, the original findings to me, don't sound backed by science. Was this report prepared for one of her appeals? So I was trying to find the purpose of this report because you would think that this report would be used as a jumping off. Off Point for appeals and I think that it is being used so right now. I'm jumping ahead a little bit, but right now the California Innocence Project Has Joanne's case off, and they're relying heavily on the when teeny report among lots of other areas one other thing, I wanNA point out. There is also a conclusion in that report. That says that the type of television set that parks owned had been linked to more than fifty fires. Remember I said at the time of the trial. The defense said it was probably the TV, but they had trouble proving it because they couldn't really say what exact model it was just kind of guessing okay, and some say this was probably one of the bigger parts of the trial that the conviction might not have happened if they could have just show that it was likely the TV that had this electrical issue. Going back to the Innocence Project Joanne had I reached out to the innocence project for help in two thousand and two, but her case was rejected because there was not a firm understanding of the fire science. Remember the Lentini. Report didn't come out until two thousand eleven. So after they'll Intini report the innocence project started paying more attention to arson science as a quote, unquote junk science, right the in two thousand and fifteen, the California innocence project took on Joannes case, and they had an evidentiary hearing in two thousand seventeen. During this hearing, they called new fire experts to talk about these new techniques. However, the prosecution witnesses concluded that they still believe it was arson and the judge really just ruled that it was a battle of the experts. You know we see this a lot of times. The time because the prosecution's expert is saying now it could still be arson. The defense has all these new experts. Experts saying it's not arson at the end of the day. The judges saying all right while it's a battle of you know which is unfortunate, because sometimes it is about all the experts, but this seems like a case where so much more evolved about science and treating it like a science yet that this is not necessarily a traditional battle of the experts, especially when you have Latini like the face of arson science backing this, so they didn't grant it did not grant a new trial, and then a judge in the Los Angeles Superior Court denied a Habeas Corpus petition in November, two, thousand and eighteen. This decision is currently being appealed. Basically, they're asking for new trial based on error, a fall scientific evidence. There's a little more because that's November two thousand eighteen. That decision is being appealed, but there's also a petition that's asking the governor in California to grant a commutation and give her a chance before the parole board, so something called the California twelve. Be Ever heard of this I know where you're going well..

"Talk about fire science, though because fire science has dramatically changed since one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty nine, and this is GonNa, come into play when we talk about where her case is currently okay so mostly it was just on the job training during the time of Joannes case in other words, there wasn't really a specific training or a specific certification to be an arson investigator. Okay in one thousand. Thousand Nine hundred eighty to the National Fire Protection Association, they actually did publish guidelines, and they started introducing scientific methods for investigating arson cases, and at this time people started recognizing that there were widely believed myths that surrounded fire science cases, so we see in the early nineties, which right around the time where Joann was convicted, people are just starting to see. Maybe this isn't such a strong science. So, I don't know if you know the name John Lentini, but he is the most well-known fire scientist, and he is the one who led the way for a lot of reforms. Actually now works at the forensic fire analysis. Institute and the reason why I bring him up is because he led an arson review panel in two thousand and eleven that was put together to review the evidence reports and testimony in the parks case, so you have John Lentini again who is? The leader of the Berry Sheck of fire science exactly so he had. This whole panel gets put together him in the panel conclude that the fire in parks home was not an arson. They found that forensic evidence used during the original investigation was invalid, and that the fire investigators who analyzed the case simply did not have a proper understanding of really the behavior of fires at that time I'm sure they increase the educational standards going forward as well and you know they talk about this new evidence shows that. That the investigators Joanne's case really base their investigation on what are now debunked arson myths so in other words. This conviction is tainted because we didn't know then what we know now it was also riddled with biased and unscientific methods. The panel's report also documents how the theories of the police investigators such as the theory that the fire had multiple points of origin was incorrect. Oh, they actually concluded that the fire spread from a single origin in the locker room, and then quote unquote jumped into the children's bedroom. It only appear to the untrained eye that there were two points of origin. In addition. The autopsy of the victims showed that the children had fatally high carbon monoxide levels in their lungs, which means what it means that had there been a fire in the bedroom meaning. If there had been two points of origin, the children would not have survived long enough for carbon monoxide to accumulate got it. So this aspect of carbon monoxide poisoning was not understood at the time of parks, trial and most research about carbon monoxide production during fire, and its effect on victims didn't occur until after the parks trial, the panel also looked at the fire patterns on the closet door again that closet door where Ronnie was found contrary to the conclusions of the initial investigators. This panel determined. Determined that the door was actually not even close at the time of the fire, and definitely not locked. They suggest that the child likely took refuge from the fire in the closet. He was scared he was he was trying to protect himself exactly what I would have thought. Ultimately, the panel concluded that by modern standards. None of this evidence withstand in a courtroom today..

"Something had been place in front of the closet to keep it from swinging open, and then they had to investigators who both agreed that it was the laundry hamper. That had been placed in front of the closet door because it matched the shape, so you have a lot of people getting on the stand here, focusing on these areas, which all sound by the. The kind of subjective to me YEP. I agree so far. Yep, the experts opinion that Joann was the PERP also rested in large part on their mapping of the fire's path, so there was a focus on what we talked about this idea of flash over basically I'm not a fire person, but the way I understand it is one certain. Organic materials are heated. They undergo this type of thermal decomposition and release flammable gases. Okay, okay, so if If that occurs every flammable surface in the room. That's not already burning can ignite in rapid succession. Oh, I, see flash over often makes domestic fires impossible to make sense of because everything gets ignited. Okay, that makes sense to me. Flash over did in fact occur in the parks home? But investigators said that the burn scape implicated the mother. When in fact, there's no way to say that what it really comes down to is. They were saying. Saying we can't find a cost, so it must be our sin. And unfortunately they had like I said they had a lot of experts getting on that. Stand testifying to this. What about the neighbor who first came forward? Did they find it? was there any reason that you could find other than just being a good citizen that she shiva grudge or didn't like her like? Is there a reason why she came forward with this information yeah. Yeah. Apparently, they had some sort of she didn't. She disliked? Joanne for some reason. Oh, that's right. Yeah, that okay. Yeah, it's hard to know exactly because a lot of that's hearsay, right to Joanne, testify Joanne did not testify. I'm not to spend too much time on the defense, because I want to spend more time on the on what happens during appeals, but basically the defense there evidence really did demonstrate that the fire could have actually been..

"Great, there was no reason to think anything else. Although, it was accidental. Of course they were still gathering evidence just to try to understand the origin of the fire. Why did this happen? At first? They believe that there was a wire in the living room that started the fire, so they were looking at burn patterns to try to understand, and that led them to this area in the living room. Nothing at this point suggested that the fire was intentionally started. So shortly after the fire, Joanne robber moved to Saint Louis to be near Roberts ailing father. Joanne had been working as a caretaker at a Christian Science Nursing Home and administrators at the home said that the pair were quiet, they kept to themselves, and neither of them ever talked about the fire or the death of their children, so Robert stood by her. He did not blame her at all for the loss of their children. Okay, actually the police initially looked at him because he had an electrician background, but they quickly ruled him out because of his Alibi Yep exactly and because I guess they were when they looked at the wire didn't look like it was tampered with no no red flags there. So I was also thinking. You're saying. It was a converted garage I was like maybe it was converted properly, and maybe there were some wiring issues. Yeah, so hold hold that thought we'll definitely talk about what could have happened here. Okay, so what led to the change of heart? While investigators became suspicious, they received telephone call from one of parks, friends and former neighbors so apparently, many people dislike Joanne there. There was one person in particular that was a neighbor named Kathy Dodge and Kathy Dodge called the police and she wanted to let them know that parks was not a good mother on the children were often not clean. She once saw one of the children eat dog food off the floor. She's also said that she had seen Joanne. Give the children. Large doses of cough medicine to sleep basically was. was saying that the children were victims of child abuse. Around this time. They were also informed that a year before that fire, the family was actually burned out of a rental house in Lynnwood. So remember said they were living in a shelter all right, so there was actually a fire in their home prior to when they lived in the shelter. That's an interesting incident. The first fire was definitely accidental there. There was no doubt about that, but what Kathy dodged tells the police is that parks commented during that fire? If Ron had come home five minutes later, Jessica would be dead, and we would be rich so now salacious information. Yes, now we have a character assassination happening right, so we have a neighbor saying she was a bad mother. And now we have this neighbor saying and she also made this. Comment is ominous comment. Last time there was a fire. And so now the police start thinking okay, so the first fire an accident. Maybe that's true, but maybe joe in learns how to start. An electrical fire gave her the idea exactly. So what happens is when the bias starts. The investigators are now looking for evidence to fit their new theory. This is problematic. We had the theory that it was accidental, so all the evidence was fitting into that theory that it's dental now. We think it's our sin. How can we look at the evidence and fit our new theory?.

Be sure to catch US they're. Great excited to jump into today's case. So, do you know anything about Joe and parks I? Really don't I have to say you pick some cases. You pick some stompers for me I. Don't know if that's a word, but you stumped me. I'm always surprised when I research some of these cases and there so shocking and I realized how little information is out there? There's no shortage of cases. That's that's for sure. Have while Joanne was a stay at home, mom and by many accounts she really loved being a mom and did the best she could. The reason I say did the best she could. As they were a bit strapped for cash, and we'll talk about that a little more in just a moment but Joanne at the time of the fire, just twenty three years old. She lived with her husband. Ronald, who was forty. Forty one years old and her three children, so she had two daughters Roanne. Who Was Sixteen Months Old Jessica, who was three years old and Ronald who they actually called Ronnie? He was the oldest at just four years old pay, so Joanne and Ronald were married for six years, so do the math. She got married very young. She had a tough upbringing. She was adopted very young and reportedly she had a very hard time fitting in. Apparently her Stepdad didn't seem to care for her and made her feel unwanted. She was also the victim of sexual assault as a teenager by an adult member of her church, so as a result of that assault as a teenager, she actually got pregnant. And she was forced to give up the child, and soon after her child was placed with a foster family, and then soon after that her child died. Oh, so a lot of trauma happening very early on for Joanne again. She met Ronald when she was pretty young. Reportedly, he became abusive sharply after they met member. They have about a twenty years difference between the two of them. She was quite young, right maybe seventeen when they got married. Does she stayed with him although he was abusive, as unfortunately, we hear often. He reportedly was both physically and verbally abusive. I also just want to mention that. I said that they had got married young. They also got married after. Only know each other for one week, Wollo Yeah. Yeah. And Ronald was previously married, and had an eighteen year old son from a prior marriage, so his son was about the age of his new wife right so the families they could be friends. So. The family lived in the bell city section of La. They actually lived in a converted two car garage. It was less than five hundred and thirty square feet. It was three bedrooms. Two young girls shared a bedroom Rani. The older son had his own room. There was a kitchen, a living room a bathroom, and although this seems like a guess, a small living space. They had actually come from a shelter before that, so they were actually really happy. They were living on their own, and it was a good time for them..
