7 Responses to Why cops, courts, and media means family killers like Jody Herring and David Conley will continue

    Bonnie, this is your best blog post ever! Well written & to the point. However, I don’t expect you will make it into prime time pointing out the obvious faults of either the media or legal system ~ in California, Texas or anywhere else for that matter. Can you get invited on the Young Turks or Amy Goodman’s ‘Democracy Now’ shows? If old man Rush Limbaugh can get a radio show going, so can you. I say this with no snark or satire ~ women need someone like you on AM airwaves.

    Not too long, but… have to say Conley details are emerging that indicate how messy & complicated DV cases usually are. Apparently the woman had finally gotten her life together with a decent man she married. This POS would have removed a GPS bracelet one way or another. My own personal wish is that he would have taken his own life as well rather than expecting cops to do it.

    • Yes. Women who take back men who displayed that kind of behavior usually regret it. If they live.

      Do want to mention the kind of Victim Notification GPS eatured in the Video clip can’t be removed. It’s steel encased in rubber.
      One guy got so aggravated trying to remove his, that he tried to shoot it off.

      Cops picked him up at the hospital. : )

      Device was hit but still very securely attached to his ankle.

        Good to know it’s impervious to removal by the usual method of cutting steel chains. Has it been tested by a Dremel saw, which cuts through steel piping & rebar in close quarters?

      • Have seen all kinds of tests…but I wouldn’t know a Dremel saw if I fell on one. Sorry. Do know there isn’t much room between skin and bracelet, if that’s a help.

    David Conley is singing like a canary in a cage to reporters… lovin’ that good old-time attention! The Washington Post article underscores just how crazy DV cases usually are; e.g. these quotes:

    [David] Conley said the domestic abuse allegations against him “were all lies.”

    “Basically what happened to that case is what happens with so many domestic violence cases: The victim recanted her story,” Jeff McShan with the Harris County District Attorney’s Office told KHOU-TV. McShan said Jackson then blamed the alleged abuse on an ex-boyfriend.

    “We went all the way up to the trial date hoping she would tell the truth about what happened, show up for court, but we couldn’t even locate her,” he said.

    Conley and Jackson then reportedly had a son, Nathaniel, though Conley said paternity was never proven.
