Riley Gaul – reporting from Knoxville County Jail

Riley Gaul’s new home.

rileygaul-booking

A couple of jail notes on Riley Gaul, from his location at the Roger D. Wilson facility on Maloneyville Road, in East Knoxville.   I mention this as Riley’s hearing is tomorrow, December 2, 2016, unless it’s been rescheduled. (Update:  Riley waived the hearing.  Will go to the Grand Jury.)  A little about those details, and four, unreturned calls to Knoxville County spokesperson, Martha Dooley, later.  

Meanwhile,  learned the following:

  • Riley Gaul was not on any kind of “Suicide Watch.”
  • No one has beaten him up.  Yet.

Meanwhile, Emma Walker’s friends and teachers responded

One friend of Emma Walker directly responded to Riley Gaul’s Twitter project attempt to distance himself as a suspect in Emma’s murder.

Friends of Emma Walker

Also, one of Emma’s many teachers most eloquently remembered Emma Walker.

Emma Walker's teacher

I mention this, because media coverage on Emma Walker, has not been in keeping with what Emma Walker deserved.

Media on Emma Walker:  the lessening of Emma

Will begin with how the Knoxville News Sentinel emphasized Emma Walker’s murder.  Emma was not mentioned by name. Neither was Riley.  But football, was.  Football was their lede.  Football and basketball was the main feature throughout Knoxville News coverage.

riley-gaul-media-assist

(My complaint to the Knoxville News Sentinel, immediately followed.)

knoxvillesentinel-complaint

Emma had planned to be a neonatal nurse and participated in a Disaster drill.

emma-walker-in-hospital-alert

It gets worse.  The Knoxville Jail was no help either.  This is our tax dollars, not working.

Days prior to the hearing I attempted to learn more information on Riley Gaul’s hearing. Would he be transported, or would the County want to save time and money and conduct the hearing by video.  The basics.  Telephoned four times. Not a single call was returned.  Folks, this is their job.  Martha Dooley works in Media Relations.  It’s how she earns her living.

But before I took Martha not doing her job, I did a little research.  Bingo.

Martha Dooley sucks – at taxpayer expense

Here’s Martha on camera – not addressing why she was non responsive to repeated requests, from citizens, then mischaracterizing the individual’s intentions.   

Apparently Martha’s job is not to speak to the public about concerning information the public likely has a right to know.  

See Martha’s non-response to coverage of two fired, deputies, below, although the Sheriff said:  

“This investigation found that you conducted yourself in a manner that was notoriously disgraceful and of such a nature morally and ethically that rendered you unsuitable as an employee,”

Pretty strong stuff!

Riley Gaul - Knoxville Jail - Emma Walker

Shouldn’t someone be talking? Did MSM roll over?

Two Knoxville Deputies fired.  Mum’s the word!

Why taxpayers allow Martha Dooley to behave in this manner is beyond me.  But why media allows it, is egregious.

(Second Update:  Martha Dooley telephoned me on December 2, claiming no prior knowledge of any calls.)  Did she not figure on phone records?  I suggested she review the voicemails I left, including with her assistants, and check back.  

My next piece will feature women targeted by men who claim to be heavily involved in becoming better Christians.

Riley Gaul arrested in galling murder of Knoxville cheerleader, Emma Walker

emmawalker-funny

Emma Walker – Murdered  Knoxville Cheerleader

It was a cowardly, sneak attack murder like no other.

Emma Walker was shot to death late at night, while she slept.

Meanwhile, boyfriend Riley Gaul, (soon arrested for Emma’s murder) went home and tried to hide or destroy evidence.

But prior to his arrest, Riley Gaul posted a biblical verse on Twitter for Emma Walker.

I am not making this up.

riley-gaul-twitter

Riley Gaul, football playing boyfriend, and;  cunning individual.

Here’s a Cliff’s Notes version of Riley Gaul’s  1 Corinthians 13-8  

Now – and this is where it gets more than a little creepy.   Count the number of “likes” in Riley’s tweet.  There’s more since I grabbed this screen shot, sadly.

riley-gaul-count-the-likes

Riley reminds me of Vanderbilt football player and gang-rapist, Brandon Vandenburg.

On Brandon Vandenburg’s, idiotic Twitter account, he wrote, “IAMSECOND” (First) and “GOD FIRST (Second.)  

And Brandon was an Honor student.

Vandenburg - Twitter original

Believe it or not, Eric Smith objected to naming Maryville College, where Riley Gaul played. Yep. Possibly relating a murder to a Maryville College football player was Eric’s concern.  

Fortunately, Hillary Meeks Tune, set Eric Smith straight in one quick hurry.

emma-walker-football-more-important-eric-smith

But how’d we’d get to a horrible murder and some clown talking about football in the Bible belt?

Quick reminder:  The Bible was written long after events transpired, (with time enough for revisionist history to match one’s personal bias); and, as most women were considered of little value, weren’t taught to read.

That explains why zero chapters of the Bible were from the point of view of half the population; although Jesus hung around with lots of women on his own, and expanded to the “proper” women who accompanied their husbands to events.  

Thus, considering for much of time, women have been muzzled, for bogus, religious reasons…it’s hardly a surprise the states with the highest murder rates involving women, come from the South.

In short; there’s not a shortage of this, as men continue to prove women are disposable.

Bible truck

The arrest and trial of Riley Gaul will likely show Emma wanted to end the relationship, and Gaul had trouble accepting that.  It’s a fairly common version of,

 “If I can’t have you, then by God, no one can.”

However,  today only, will demonstrate not only was Emma’s future stolen; but her family’s future was too.  Something as simple as family get-togethers.   And photos.  Riley ended it all.

Only men can end the culture of misogyny in America.  Last year 1,631 women were murdered by those who “loved” them.   They become “anonymous” women, while others talk about equal rights for those of differing religions and sexual orientations.

Worse? Have seen some posts (by men) saying to take the name of the college out, as their allegiance remains with…football!  That’s hideous: But that’s misogyny folks.

For some,  football will always be more important than a murder victim, killed in her sleep.  Football is their religion.

Speaking of religion

So now what? Pray for the family, but please, proof of prayer is action, There is no “Rest in peace” for murder victims.

Also, people who are murdered while they sleep, are not resting. They’re dead.

Last, please know this is not God’s will. God gave us the gift of free-will. So no cop outs with “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.”

(Using that logic, there’s no need for the police or the courts.)

Sometimes think it just might be that God views humans as a well-meant experiment. That failed. I get the feeling when it comes to cold-blooded murders such as this one, that God decamped to another Galaxy to concentrate on making a smarter, more humane, species.

So will leave you with happy photos of a shattered family because another idiot was outraged a young woman he wanted to stay with him, wasn’t interested.

emma-and-evan-walker-5

Last photographs of Emma and Evan.

emma-evan-7

Two cuter, nicer kids weren’t to be found

For the living, be a friend of murder victims.  Emma wanted to be a neo-natal, nurse.  She was a helper.  Pray for the energy to help make sure justice is served.

Blessings to the family.

Vanderbilt gang rape – Brandon Vandenberg sentencing hearing blew up – 17 years

Brandon Vandenberg’s friend Miles Finley – bailed.

Finally!  Long-time Brandon Vandenberg bro, Miles Finley, finally came clean. As Finley finally began describing what really happened, the camera panned to Brandon, who looked like he’d been hit between the eyes by a baseball…bat.

Vandenburg - Miles Finley hates waiting on women

Miles Finley – from a happier, pre-defendant, time.

But, on the morning of November 4, 2016, the public heard for the first time, Miles Finley manning up, from an earlier investigation.  I thought he  took the stand, and explained how he and Brandon’s Mom – destroyed evidence under the direction of, Surprise: long time family friend and father of Brandon’s high school sweetheart, attorney Albert Perez!

But I was wrong.  It was from an earlier recorded hearing with the police.  My readers are good!

Perez, predictably, with every twist and turn of Miles’ story bounced up out of his chair like a Jack-in-the-box, objecting.  To no avail.

(During the live testimony, tweeted to the California State Bar during the proceedings, they might want to listen live.  Had this feeling about Perez from the get.  So much so had ordered transcripts from earlier testimony.)

But Brandon’s (former) friend, Finely, testified Brandon kept changing his story the night of the gang rape. There was talk about Miles violating his earlier plea, and this time around, none of Finley’s past arrogance was on display as he burbbled forth with date rape drug information. Also, (it surprised me) Finley wouldn’t let his girlfriend see the videos Brandon sent. Yes, videos. Finley said Brandon was up on date rape drugs as Rod, Brandon’s father, gave Brandon him the date rape drug saying it “loosens women up.”  (I’d reported this earlier.)

Miles Finley said Shawna Alexander repeatedly I Do Solemnly Swearsaid, “Brandon is the victim here.”  So Mom’s denial seems to remain entrenched.

Miles Finley’s explosive testimony was followed by long-time Vandenberg family friend, Pernilla Linner; who testified Brandon was the most polite and kind young man she has ever met — both in Sweden and in the United States.  She went on to say  she didn’t think her daughter would ever be unsafe around Brandon.  She would let her daughter be around Brandon – now.  She believes had Brandon left the victim at her place, “it” would never have happened.  Linner envisioned Brandon speaking to colleges around the United States.  She ended asking for the least amount of time in prison possible. Next came a pastor, and Ms. Fix, a high school English teacher.  Fix said she didn’t think Vandenberg “Needed rehabilitation.  She said, “I think he needs mercy.”  (Fashion note:  When trying to appear credible jettison white socks with sandals.)

On cross-examination, Fix said she thought Brandon “Might have been” calling for help.

She was hopeless.  

Brandon testifies

vandenburgsentencingBrandon claims he was an inexperienced drinker. Laughably untrue.  See prior column.  Brandon’s mentions “football mentors” twice.  Brandon’s mentioned 40 drinks.  He refers to the gang rape as “the incident.”

So we end where we began….happy for the conviction….horrified by the crime, horrified by the quality of defense counsel, heartened by Nashville Metro Police, the DA and the victim all determined to “make it right.”

Originally, was delighted the victim wasn’t there.  My not-so-secret hope, was the woman had a, work-or-vacation scheduling conflict, hoping her life had drastically improved since departing Nashville. The rapee (whom I always believed was drugged – not drunk) having been through the wringer and I’d hoped  she’d opted, literally, to not give Brandon Vandenberg the time of day.

But it turns out, the victim was not there as she continues to suffer. Judge Watkins easy sentencing on Cory Batey being the straw that broke the victim’s back.

However, the date rape drug FINALLY came into play.  And as Miles Finley finally came came clean, and Albert Perez morphed into an objecting, bobbing little jack-in-the-box; it all fell into place.

DA Jan Norman finished strong

JanNorman

Jan Norman killed it at the close. She described Brandon’s actions as the facilitator, who also, in a position of trust post-rape;  acted in a way to both cover his crimes while blaming the victim.  In short, she described Brandon Vandenberg for what he is.

Every parents nightmare.

Defense maintained Brandon had never been away from home for any length of time.  (So I guess Xaxier Prep didn’t count?) Defense said each of the acts were performed by someone else.  Said Mr. Vandenberg should not be sentenced to more than Cory Batey who urinated on her, and sat on her face.  Defense mentioned there was a little bruising, is all. Defense said Brandon Vandenberg was a good guy.  Said “You can’t fool 40 people you’ve known all your life.”  Except of course, you can.  Defense also tried to use the “Devil Alcohol” defense to mitigate a longer sentence.  Defense said “he was not a drinker.” 

Finally, Judge Monte Watkins spoke.

The Court agreed with the Prosecution.  Abused the position of private trust and was the Leader and the rape would not have happened “were it not for him.”  And he did nothing to stop it.  As for mitigating factors – no priors, defendant has community support.  Seems remorseful – but that the Enhancement factors Vandenburg got 17 years.  Sure glad the victim didn’t bother to show up.

Brandon Vandenberg – Violent Sex Offender

Vandenburg - violent sex offender.png

Am now tying to determine how much time Brandon Vandenberg will spend in the care, custody and control of the State of Tennessee.

The legal line up

The legal line up has always been pristine for all involved on the side Prosecution; and considerably less than stellar, on defense.

First: CA attorney Perez.

Vandenburg - Defense attorney Albert Perez

A pricey, routinely inept (in our by now, jaded opinion) presence.  

Second: Fletcher Long – convicted of extortion of his own client – Long was thrown out of the legal profession, and

Vandenburg - Defense attorney Fletcher Long

currently, flaps his gums on some radio program.

Third: Troy Bowlin – Appellate attorney – in for a half-second, and now out, due to a conflict of interest – after the Court of Appeal threw out his motion.

The Bench:  Judge Monte Watkins

Judge Monte Watkins

Judge Monte Watkins – presiding over Vanderbilt’s top football draft pick, Brandon Vandenberg’s gang-rape trial – 2 defendants down, 2 to go.                                               (Coach Franklin skedaddled pdq.)

Judge Watkins – with whom we had the utmost confidence — until he fell out of favor; well, leaped out of favor —after the Cory Batey sentencing, influenced by letters of supportive family members willing to over-look Batey’s alcohol and anger problem.

But thankfully the prosecutor discovered the letters sent to the court were not provided the Prosecution. How this happened, no one knows; and worse fewer still are asking.

The national favorite flavor of rape continues

Texas

College wise – Police and Baylor University buried reports of Baylor’s sex crimes.

Then there’s Jersey.

Brandon Vandenberg sentencing on November 4th; Jailhouse phone calls provoke a question

In light of the November 4, 2016, sentencing date for convicted Vanderbilt rapist Brandon Vandenburg, the only question is;  Head injury?  

Head injury because Nothing changes!  Brandon Vandenburg, the once nationally hailed football playing, “honor student,” three years later, remains unable to process his decision to facilitate the gang-rape of the woman he was dating.  A woman who trusted him. The best Vandenberg can offer is, “it doesn’t make sense.”

brandon-vandenburg-jailhouse-call2

 

So what has Brandon been worrying about?

Football.

Vandenburg’s chief worry, as expressed from his phone calls, is being in his prime years for making a fortune playing football.  That Brandon processed.  That he understands.  Consider Brandon’s jailhouse conversation with Brandon’s equally dimwitted father, Rod.

brandon-vandenburg-jailhouse-calls

Brandon Vandenburg whining to father Rod Vandenburg

Links for each of Vandenburg’s jailhouse with his parents and a female friend, are here.

Gotta wonder why at least one of Brandon’s four clueless attorneys didn’t float a possible “head injury” defense during the initial trials.  (On appeal, it’s too late.)

But it appears although Vandenberg has new counsel, they’re still keen on the loser, “Devil Alcohol” defense, that failed Twice before.  (As we used to say out West.  “If the horse is dead — get off.”)

Am also baffled that neither the DA or Judge Monte Watkins asked any of the defendants (two remain) whether – while out on bail, whether they enjoyed a cocktail or seven.)

Have maintained from the onset that Vandenberg’s defense team committed malpractice.  (And Fletcher Long committed a felony – so now he’s a radio host and not an attorney.)

However,  the defense continues.  As quoted in the Tennessean:

“It is likely that Vandenburg’s alcohol use will be discussed. His defense lawyers, Randall Reagan of East Tennessee and Albert Perez of California, portrayed Vandenburg during trial as a young man overcome by pressure to drink”

So glad neither jury bought in to that.  As demonstrated in the screen-shots I grabbed before Brandon and friends locked down their Twitter and Facebook accounts;  Brandon was never pressured to drink.  Brandon and his crew had been drinking and manhandling drunk women for quite a while.

Vandenburg Friend Miles Finley - drunk women

Vandenberg friend Miles Finley – who suggested a second attack in a text to Vandenberg during the gang-rape

Vandenburg - Miles Finley - drunk bros

Brandon’s friends from high school.

So why any attorneys would even consider citing Pressure to drink – is beyond absurd.  It’s malpractice.

Legal Malpractice is what I first mentioned in January 28, 2015 – at the conclusion of Vandenburg’s first trial.

Vandenburg - Doug Finley Dad - nothing has changed

NOTE: Vandenburg’s friend’s Father texted: “Nothing has changed.”

Brandon’s friend’s father was right

The disgusted father of one of Brandon Vandenberg’s friends was right in 2014, when he texted, “Nothing has changed” to now; 2016.

Everything in Brandon Vandenberg’s mindset remains exactly the same.

So for the record, “Nothing has changed” sums up Brandon Vandenberg, and his family, best.  Vandenberg’s victim will move on. The sentencing is a box to check in her life.  (A life that has already changed for the better.)

But Brandon Vandenberg and his parents seem doomed to remain frozen in denial. 

Because if nothing changes; nothing changes.

Heads up Ladies: Domestic Violence “Awareness” is a con.

So expect another round of news coverage concerning October as “Domestic Violence Awareness Month.”  Blah blah blah.  

It’s all a con; but one media clearly supportsNYPD officer Samiul Alam illustrates the con, quite well.

“The recently promoted officer, Samiul Alam, 32, was arrested Saturday when cops were called to the couple’s Parkchester apartment after the second alleged beating in less than a week.

When his wife, Tania Chowdhury, called 911 on Saturday afternoon, she said Alam told her, “They won’t do anything to me. I’m a police office (sic). You have no marks, you’re not bleeding, you can’t prove anything. At worst this is an assault 3. I’ll be back in a day or two.”

What happened to Samiul Alam?  

He was released on his own recognizance, again.  Of course.  Because when it comes to civil rights; Women have few.

A long history of this can be found at the “Bad Cops” section of Familylawcourts.com

Misogynistic media supports the con so various non-profits (which operate for the benefit of the staff) can hold conferences featuring “Awareness” instead of lobbying for the solution:  GPS with Victim Notification.  

Yes, the non-profits ignore the solution.  What a terrific, self-serving gig! Take a gander at the type of GPS that would notify the would-be victim a head of time, so she could vacate the area ahead of time, and save her own life.  Then ask yourself why attorneys for family court litigants and so-called “Domestic Violence Advocates” aren’t demanding it.

CBS – initial report.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L3mLaKy84-M

CBS – initial life saving report – ignored by government.

CBS – more detailed.

Since everyone knows the problem isn’t awareness;  I took the solution to the Chief of Probation, the City Council, the Police Chief and my Congressman.  What happened?  

Bumpkiss!

This is why I recommend not donating to any non-profit (Quick reminder: A “non-profit” is a tax phrase; not a vow of poverty) that is not demanding real-time, GPS, victim notification. 

The reality is some women running these non-profits believe they would need a new career field if the problem ended; so they don’t want the solution.  This includes San Diego’s, Bogus, “Family Justice Center.”  

These outfits are very content to offer post-crime services, instead of a high-tech solution that prevents an assault or worse.  And how crazy ridiculous is that brand of callousness?

One last thing. The DC shooter began his rampage over a divorce and custody case.  But nothing happened since.

Doug Sain is promoting his Anti-Hillary movie and furiously requesting continuances for his DV arrest.

Hello irony.  Is this perfect, or what!?!

Update:  May 19, 2017:

Although Doug Sain successfully delayed accountability for nearly a year, we suspect Sain has tried the patience of three attorneys, and  perhaps one judge.  Sain has been ordered to appear in Lake Havasu City Court to answer to no less than FIVE charges in connection with the case below, and others, on May 25, 2017, at 1:30p.m. for June trial.

—-

Doug Sain, the former partner of Dinesh De  Souza, is excited his anti-Hillary movie, “Clinton Inc., the Movie” is set for release Friday, September 30, 2016.

Nationwide, Sain’s anti-Hillary movie is set for release in October.

October being: Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Apparently Doug’s so excited, he can’t be bothered to appear in court for his Domestic Violence arrest in Lake Havasu City…for which Doug has requested and received two continuances.

hillary-movie

Um, here’s what’s wrong with this picture?

Meanwhile, First grade teacher, and former wife of Doug, Brooke Sain, would love to move on with her life.

But, does it seem to readers, that the Lake Havasu City judge is allowing letting Sain essentially, run the show?

Of course the local Lake Havasu judge could order Sain to appear; but to date, the local judge appears to not to be so inclined.

Although, it’s been months.  But wait, there’s more!

Irony:  Round Two

Brooke Sain Baumkirchner, is a fan of women who support women.  So Hillary is featured on Brooke’s Facebook page.

Meanwhile, it appears as if Doug views himself as King of the Jungle.

University of TN College of Law Professor Glenn Reynolds calls for protestors to be run down

In case people are confused why racism continues; let me try to explain.

Perhaps because it’s being taught? Perhaps by the endowed with hubris, University of Tennessee College of Law Professor, Glenn Harlan Reynolds?

glenn-reyolds-hubris

Blah, blah, etc.

Who, shockingly, is also a member of the USAToday, Board of Contributors.  (Face palm.)

Last night Reynolds tweeted the below in response to protesters causing traffic jams in Charlotte, after yet another nearly, instant murder by police.

glenn-reynolds-run-them-down

Yes, the University of Tennessee and USAToday, funds guys who call for the mowing down of black people in pain, and protesting their extermination by police, for daring to cause — traffic jams.

I contacted the University of Tennessee’s Chancellor’s office the morning after Reynolds called for black people to be mowed down.  

Was told the University only heard about Reynolds’ statement this morning; and were in meetings about it.  However, the press release of Chancellor Jimmy Cheeks said he supported Glenn Reynolds in a statement titled,

“UT Knoxville Chancellor Jimmy G. Cheek Supports Law Dean’s Statement, here. The full statement is below.

“UT Knoxville Chancellor Jimmy G. Cheek has expressed his support for College of Law Dean Melanie Wilson’s statement about Professor Glenn Reynolds.

Wilson’s statement about the faculty member’s social media post reinforces the university’s commitment to fostering a civil and inclusive learning environment, Cheek said.

Wilson shared this statement today.

“I am aware of the remarks made last night on Twitter by Professor Glenn Reynolds and of the serious and legitimate concerns expressed by members of the UT Law family and the University of Tennessee community, as well as concerned citizens across the country. Professor Reynolds’s comments do not reflect my views and opinions, nor do they reflect the values of the college and university.

University administrators, college faculty, and I are investigating this matter.

The university is committed to academic freedom, freedom of speech, and diverse viewpoints, all of which are important for an institution of higher education and the free exchange of ideas. My colleagues and I in the university’s leadership support peaceful civil disobedience and all forms of free speech, but we do not support violence or language that encourages violence.

Professor Reynolds has built a significant platform to discuss his viewpoints, but his remarks on Twitter are an irresponsible use of his platform.

The College of Law is committed to ensuring our students learn in a welcoming, open, and inclusive community in which they can successfully pursue their law degrees and become not only responsible lawyers, but also responsible global citizens who are able to competently represent people of all backgrounds.”

Twitter suspended Reynold’s @instapundit account and Reynolds immediately began damage control with a, “No big deal.  It was just a pithy statement” via relentless right winger, Hugh Hewitt.


hugh-hewitt-twitter-suspends-reynolds

glenn-reynolds-transcript

 [Update:  Reynolds said he wouldn’t apologize (you weren’t expecting a classy guy, right?) and then he caved.  Reynolds deleted the tweet per orders from Twitter.  But now University officials get to review all the negative publicity and what it’s cost them.]

reynolds-deletes-tweet


However, Twitter isn’t the only place Reynolds, spews.

why-the-president-needs-to-be-white

So, Glenn Reynolds and the University of Tennessee College of Law, as well as USAToday, remain the best example of why racism remains deeply entrenched.

(Although I do appreciate USAToday and the University of Tennessee for showing us who they are. Good information!)

Also, do not despair.  There is hope. Ladies and Gentlemen, I bring you

Good News!

Consider Southern Law School Professors who are working hard to end racism. No really.  I’m not kidding.  Law students; heads up.  Consider a transfer to Ole Miss

In that vein, I give you School of Law Professor, David Case.

david-case

I recommend transferring to Ole Miss and Professor Case.

A little background

David Case is one whip-smart gentleman, whose social media feed is just that.  Social! On his bio, case writes “Ole Miss Law Professor. I am deadly serious about my lack of seriousness on the Twitter.”

But a quick scroll through Case’s media feed reveals Professor Case reveals he is serious about ending racism; and clearly loves his family and the animals who seem to rule the house.

Lots of pictures of a solid, good life, being well lived.  (Reynolds media feed features Reynolds at gym, Reynolds at, well; you get the idea.)

But I ask a serious question:   Wouldn’t your money be better spent with a well-rounded educator than a hubris laden guy who recommends mowing down people?  I think so.  Follow Professor Case on Twitter to get a feel of him, here

Law school students who are serious about their growth might exit the hubris machine, and transfer to Ole Miss.

Just sayin’
