WE KEEP SHOOTING AT EACHOTHER!

When all else fails, shoot!

The youth for youth kids were at the Hyatt doing their thing talking about mediation instead of fighting it out, talking about doing the right thing instead of drinking, doing without instead of teen pregnancy and STD, the Filipina Ladies Association talked a dozen doctors plus into staying on-island and giving their time as well as many more nurses to volunteer their time at the Expo Hall at Manila Mall for hours and hours to talk about Daibetes and high blood pressure and high cholesterol and the damages caused by no exercize, eating without stopping, smoking without stopping and drinking without stopping, however, I'm not sure the subject matter didn't include shooting when drug deals went sour or shooting out the back door when you heard pigs and dogs or noises....whatever, there were people behind or near Kautz Glazing in lower Barrigada Hts. that had nothing better to do than shoot at eachother at around seven last night, supposedly of Chinese descent and one now fights for his life at GMH in critical condition.
I used to think that we should ban guns, now I think we should just ban bullets. We could control who sells bullets more than we could control the sale of guns, since we seem not to be able to control the sale of guns. Heck, we can't control anything around here, what am I talking about? The smart thing to do is stay indoors after it gets dark. If you have to be in the boonies, don't make any noises and your neighbors won't shoot at you. If you want your children safe, keep them in the house with you after it gets dark and in daylight, don't let them play outside unless you're with them 100% of the time. The only real way to be safe is if you take control of your life, everything else is beyond control. When was the last time you were on Marine Drive and saw a GPD patrol car? Feel safe now that you remember how many you remember seeing? Yeah, I bet you do! But not to worry, we have 12 ambulances to bring you to GMH! In the meantime, happy dodging, seems they're shooting everywhere these days!

WELL, BETTER NOT PLAN ON SHOPPING FOR GROCERIES AFTER SHOPPING AT HOME DEPOT!

Who ever said the economy was looking good was wearing rose colored glases!

Money ain't growing on trees, there ain't been no FEMA money lately, no more Red Cross money, either, so it looks like Payless at North Gate's closing its doors because it's not paying its way which is exactly what I'd do if I owned it. (hint, hint govGuam-when you're losing money, you down size!)
Owners of Payless are saying that they've invested their money in upgrading their other markets and closing down the one at the foot of airport road. It's the place you stop to buy beer and cold drinks before you go to the beach....but mostly that's because the store at Ypao that was owned by the Perez family closed down as well because it wasn't making money either-right there in Tumon, with its various Chamorro sweet delights.
So if you were thinking that the economy was as 'up' as people want you to believe it is, look around you and count how many stores and mom'n'pop stores have closed up because they lost money. Two really big hotels sit empty in Tumon, huge office buildings are empty as you drive on Marine Drive, left side, right side, you choose, they're on both sides and perhaps more will close as the price of fuel increases.
I don't blame the Calvo's for closing the store, it's a smart choice, it's a form of survival. It's too bad that the public sector doesn't take note of how it's done!

THE NATIVES ARE RESTLESS

I sure hope they get punished.....if they're caught, that is!

Yesterday, there was a bomb scare at one of the northern high schools, I think it was Sanchez High. I think it was reported that the idiot kids were caught....hello, idiots, caller ID, you can be traced even if you don't talk longer than a second, just let the phone ring more than once and you're logged on!!!

So me thinks the kiddos were arrested and are happily checking life out at DYA. See, the problem is, they're being treated with kid gloves there. No punishment, kid gloves. Awe, so sorry, you're here, you'll be okay, we'll treat you just like at home, honest! And, they probably will.

The parents should be punished as well because when these spoiled brats come out of DYA, they'll make darned sure their brats don't make bomb scare calls to schools. Besides, isn't that a federal offense?

So today, it seems some angry, perhaps restless kids, and or, adult, decided not to call in a bomb scare. Instead, they decided to toss a self made bomb instead, injuring three students at Sanchez High and if that wasn't enough, almost simultaneously called (maybe not the same perps) called a bomb scare and closed down JFK at the same time, challenging GPD and the rest of the island's rescue teams. Seriously, this is a federal offense!

I'm thinking that these perps and their parents should be caught and punished before the eyes of all to see, maybe at the Plaza de Espana (as in Scared Straight) so that no other restless or angry student is ever tempted to call in a bomb scare or decides to make a chemical bomb and toss it into a school gym to injure innocent students. This really has to stop, it's terrorism at it's best and it's the children terrorizing the adults and we're letting them get away with it.

Catch'em and punish'em and make an example of the just punishment so that others won't be tempted to copy their stupid pranks, that being a stupid word to use to describe the terror that was felt by parents whose children attended the two high-schools today.

DEATH AND THE PICK-UP TRAPS

Proof that there are many ways to die other than driving under the influence.

We yell and scream all day long because stupid people don't use their seat belts. We watch stupid people drive by with their precious todlers standing in front seats or being held by kids not much older than the todlers, seat belt not fastened. Insert yell and scream!!!
We even have fire fighters asking for funds so that they can go to places like Manila Mall and GPO to teach dumb parents how to properly install baby seats. Most parents are too dumb to read instructions and need help from fire fighters who need help themselves with the installation. Am I boring you yet? Okay, we spend an inordinate amount of time on fixing something that's not broken and look the other way when it comes to the problem that's right infront of our nose! Those damned pick-up trucks that transport tiny little children and not so tiny people. And those damned pick-up trucks don't follow the speed limits most of the time. And guess what, those damned pick-ups don't have seat belts that keep the passengers from becoming flying objects when the pick-up becomes a hood ornament on another vehicle.
Who's surprised that we had a death on one of our roads yesterday morning involving a man who flew out of the back of a pick-up truck? It wasn't the first time, it wasn't even the first time on that road. A few years ago, a man from one of the neighboring islands flew out of a pick-up on the same road just a few miles north from where yesterday's accident took place. Did we do anything to stop the transport by pick-up bed? Nope! Do our legislators have the time to change the law to make it illegal to transport human being-young and old in the back of same? Yep! Did they take the time to change the law? Nope! Will you re-elect them? Probably...why? Because apathetic! You just don't care. Those goons waste your money and you sit back and do nothing.
Yesterday's accident killed a man that you're not related to so who cares. Around here, if it doesn't happen to us, who cares? How sad that we've gotten this way. How did we get this way?
Senator Robert Klitzkie has proposed a Bill that will make the legislature a part-time legislature that will save this government millions of dollars. The senators who don't know how to do anything else but shuffle papers are against the Bill. They need to eat out of the public trough(rhymes with cough). They'll stand up and argue and argue so that the Bill won't pass. I dare you not to re-elect those who vote against this Bill. I dare you to promote this Bill to bring bake the real politicians who want to work for real government from the heart rather than from their check book.
The same senators that are against the Bill to make the legislature part-time are probably the same ones who sit on their hands that won't change the law making it illegal to ride in the back of a pick-up!

NEED YOUR PRAYERS FOR ICU PATIENT IN THE STATES

Readers ask for prayers. Request cut and pasted.

"Hafa adai todos!Hey, I just got back tonight from visiting Dean Tajalle at the Naval Medical Hospital Center in Bethesda with John Salas and John Espinal. If you hadn't heard about it, it was in the Guam PDN a while back. He got injured in Iraq, it's been 2 months today that he's been there. Why I haven't been up there to visit earlier is because I like most of you get so wrapped up in our own little worlds with our own little problems and lives to live.
It was pretty sad for me to see a Chamorro brother (son) hurt like that laying in a coma with a wife and 3 young children in the ICU waiting room, with all hope of him pulling through. His mom is there also with 2 sisters, mom comes up from Columbia, SC, the one sister is here visiting from Ft. Hood, Texas. His Mother-in-law flew in from American Samoa. Dean is fighting for his life, so please keep him in your prayers for a miracle. He seemed to be responding when we talked to him, but God only knows what is going on. Please keep his whole family in your prayers as well especially the young family he has, 3 kids, 11 yr old girl, 5 yr old boy, and 15 month old little girl. Dean's mother and family have been driving up from Columbia, SC, every week to be with him. Pele, his wife, a very beautiful young Samoan lady, is so optimistic that he will pull through. Let's pray that he does!!
If you have the time, make the time, go visit. Pele will take you in
to see him, it's Guam pasted all over his ICU room with flags, cards,
pictures. Please show your Chamorro spirit and go visit, if not, send a card. He's in the ICU unit at the Bethesda Naval Medical Center and can probably take a few visitors at a time only. I'm sure you can find the address on line, I'll try and paste it on here before I sign off. Let's show Dean and his family all the love that Chamorros have for each other!! Send a card, his wife Pele will read it to him.
Address: Mr. Dean Tajalle, ICU
National Naval Medical Center
8901 Wisconsin Avenue
Bethesda, Maryland 20889

Si Yu'os Maase!

READER HAS STRONG FEELINGS ABOUT LADY WHO SHOOTS INTO BOONIES KILLING TEEN BUT GETS NO PUNISHMENT

Read his/er thoughts and see if you don't agree.

Cut/pasted thoughts:
"Didn't I just say that the woman wouldn't be charged? I'm wondering if she's still going to be allowed to retain her weapons permit and handle weapons in the future. I guess the fact that it was at least negligence wasn't a consideration.
An Only on Guam and not at all surprising. This is tantamount to getting away with murder. All one has to do now is say they were shooting at dogs or pigs. Doesn't matter that you couldn't see them.
Glad she is not my neighbor. I'm sure to mind my own business from now on. No charges will be brought against woman arrested for shooting death of the teen."

KUAM News
April 27, 2006
Criminal charges against 54-year-old Linda Rabon Torres were dismissed today after a Superior Court grand jury handed a no true bill against the Yigo woman. Essentially the grand jury did not find enough evidence to charge Torres with a crime.
The 54-year-old was arrested following the shooting death of a 14-year-old boy. Police were investigating claims that Torres was firing her gun into the jungle area where dogs and pigs were fighting.
Court officials confirm the case against Torres has been closed.


I must agree with the reader. The woman used her gun recklessly. Someone should have been punished for that boy's life. We can't go shooting off our guns every time we hear noises. Did she bother calling 911 to report the noise or did she shoot first then call the police? I hope she remembers what the boy looked like dead on her property every time she closes her eyes before she sleeps, it'll be little consolation for the boy's parents and siblings.
Nice laws, ya think?

THE BOYCOTT OF THE AG WAS EVIDENT TODAY

No show didn't embarrass the AG but the no showee...

There was but one judge that attended what was like the state of the AG's report card reading for the last year at the Legislature. Few senators didn't think enough to attend. Did it make them look good by not attending? No! It just meant that it wasn't important enough to attend showing the people that they represent that they can't really work with every branch of the government and that they take 'things personally' and that if things don't go their way, they choose the highway. The gov didn't go and I think I can understand why he chose not to, but I can't, for the life of me, figure out why the judges of the Superior and Supreme Court boycotted the speech. What does that say to the public? Does it mean that they are so disdainful of the AG that they just think everything he does is trash and that he and his staff mean so little that nothing he has to say is worth getting dressed up for?
It sends mixed messages to the kids at UOG who are attending college who think that members of the various branches of government should get along, if not personally, on a civil basis. Boybotting such meetings as today shows no respect for the office. You don't have to like the man, but there were invited dignataries, their absence boycotted them as well!
That those people weren't there shows the very reason why Mr. Moylan had such a hard time doing his job for the last four years. I'm sure that who ever gets the job will have the same lack of cooperation. People don't want to share their empires.

ANOTHER CHILD DIES IN THE KILLING FIELDS

A two year old girl called to heaven years before her time! Does anyone out there care that they're killing our children right before our very eyes?

There have been more children killed on Guam in the last two days than there have been adults killed in New York or LA in the same amount of time(I'm betting) this and last week and I'm betting no one gives a rat's behind except one of the parents!
Allegedly, the child's mother's boyfriend wasn't watching the child who was in deep waters and the child was struggling in the waters....well whatdoya thing, the child instintively knows how to swim if you throw her into the deep? Or was he jealous of the amount of time the child was spent on her by the mother? If I were the girlfriend, would I allow my boyfriend to care for my todler? Whatever, it's water under the bridge, the little girl is gone and once more, we have people listening to the radio and making small talk about the tragedy at rosary gatherings. "Did you hear?" "Poor mother!" "Poor Child!" Then they go back to their lives and do nothing!
The conversation at a rosary last night was about the lady with the gun that heard noises during the day and the machisma took her big gun and shot into the not-so-woody area behind her yard and guess what, she didn't kill the pig she thought was making the noise. Instead, she killed a 14-yr-old boy!
I think we're losing our marbles rather quickly and reading the headlines in either papers or watching tube(either) confirms that. We've turned pretty violent and if we don't do something about it, we'll soon have more people at DOC for killing kids than we will those who are there for dealing with ICE!
Wake up Guam, We're supposed to love our kids, not kill them!

OUR CHILDREN ARE IN THE KILLING FIELDS

This time, it's a fourteen year old boy.

KUAM reported this evening that a fourteen year old boy was shot and killed by(allegedly) a 54-year old woman who is the neighbor of the child.
Mindy Fothergil reports:"Just after 5pm police reclassified the case as a homicide, arresting 54-year-old Linda Rabon Torres of Yigo. She has been charged with negligent homicide, reckless conduct, possession and use of a deadly weapon in the commission of a felony, and unlawful discharge of a firearm in a residential area. Police confirm Torres did have a firearms ID and was the registered owner of a .22-caliber rifle.
My brain isn't configured to solve why a woman would need to use a rifle so if it was an accident I can't figure out why she would even have the rifle in the first place. I certainly don't have any idea why people have to have guns in their homes, but guess it doesn't matter because if you're evil enough, you can use a knife just as easily to kill a child. I guess I'm in total disbelief. I just can't figure out why people have this need to be so violent, have this need to have ojbects that kill.
I hope that if the woman did in fact kill this boy who will not return to school after his little Easter break and be promoted to the next grade, graduate from high school, get married, join the military ,get married or have children that she goes to jail and is reminded every day of her life by way of a picture of this boy's dead body, and pictures of his parents and siblings as they mourn the loss of his life. Maybe one of the two t.v. news stations will make a PSA of the this so that it becomes a lesson to those who go to the gun before engaging the brain the next time they get mad.
I never really believed in suicide before, but after yesterday's killing of that three-year old and today's killing of the 14-year old.......I much prefer seeing the death of evil one over that of the innocent victim.
What in the hell is happening to these people, have they all gone nuts? April's supposed to be Child Abuse Awareness Month...it's not supposed to be a month to kill as many children as possible!
With all that's going on, I've yet to see anyone from Mental Health coming on the tube to say that help is available for those that have problems controlling their anger.....
Mental Health doesn't have enough funds to hire enough doctors/drugs, help outside of MH is too expensive and most HMO's don't cover antidepressants and or shrink visits..........so.......sickoes do as they please, get mad, kill their kids then turn the gun on themselves...Remember the man who killed his former wife, self and little Erica in Dededo? She tried to hide under the bed so that he wouldn't kill her....he did anyway. There's a house named after her at Tiyan...nothing changes, just the names of the victims.
Shame on us for not trying harder to help these people.

HE GOT HIS WAY....I WONDER WHAT GOD SAID TO HIM

I didn't get my wish!

I've looked and searched for the word I could use for a father killing a child but couldn't find one. There is a word for a child killing a father,(patricide), a mother (matricide), even one for killing a sibling(fraticide), even one for an infant(infanticide), but a child? Nary a word!.

Here's an excerpt from something I stumbled upon on-line:"the English speaking people create the words like “ patricide, matricide, fratricide, infanticide, pesticide and even genocide”. In English, you will find when more complex ideas are expressed, logical relationship between one event and another will not be expressed by conjunction such as because and so." Obviously, mankind has been known to kill its own, why would there be words to name the acts if they didn't happen more than once, but why not a word for the killing of a child older than an infant? What is the word used for a father or mother killing a three-yr-old?

I hate that the man died. I wanted him to live and be conscious for a long, long time. I wanted him to realize what he did to his little boy and his little girl. I wanted him to pay for his sin. I didn't want him to get the easy way out. I'm a little upset with God gave him for giving him the easy way out, but can only surmise that He knows what's best. I hope that in His infinite mercy, he gives the children's mother the strength to endure the pain she must be going through with the lost of her little boy and the worry she must be going through for the little girl.

We have Erica's house just for cases like separations such as this man and woman had. What happen. Why weren't the children brought to Erica's house to be picked up there? Surely the mother knew that the man had emotionally unstable. Whatever we discuss, the milk is spilled and no going over the event will bring back the little boy. We can only learn from this sad event and pray that it never happens again.

What a terrible way to celebrate Easter for that poor family. I hope that the woman had a good network of support and that whoever reads this will remember her in their prayers.

I AM NOT ALONE

Reader thinks ill of the man who brought death to his child as well.

(cut and pasted)"
What a way to start off Easter Sunday. NOT so good.

When fetching the Pacific Daily News (Guam's daily 'rag') out of the box this morning the headlines tell the sad tale of a 3-year-old boy stabbed to death by his father yesterday. His 1-year-old sister was also stabbed and is in stable condition. That is a bit of good news. The father who did the dastardly deed is in critical condition and hopefully won't survive. It would preclude the expense of a lot of time and money by not having to go through a trial. It would also spare the family more public exposure and embarrassment.
I don't buy into the 'guilty until proven innocent' crap in cases like this or the sordid tale that follows below this story from today's paper:
Father suspect in son's murder 1-year-old daughter also stabbed, in stable condition

Pacific Sunday News

April 16, 2006
A 3-year-old boy is dead and his 1-year-old sister remains in stable
condition at Guam Memorial Hospital after they were both found yesterday stabbed in the chest inside their father's Dededo home.
Medics responding to a reported hanging at the Chalan Palauan house around noon yesterday found the two children with stab wounds, and their father -- 23-year-old Frank Reyes Jr. -- hanging by the neck. (IMO...he probably didn't initiate the hanging until the cops were at the door and who could save his sorry @ss!)
Police said Reyes is a suspect in the homicide investigation. (IMO...let's skip the 'suspect' and 'alleged' crap...he is GUILTY).
The three were transported to the hospital. The boy was pronounced dead at about 12:55 p.m. As of press time, the girl was in stable condition and being watched closely while their father was listed in critical condition, according to the nursing supervisor.
The children live with their mother but were in the care of their father that afternoon, said Dennis Santos, a special agent with the Criminal Investigation Section. He also noted the couple had just separated. "Later that afternoon, the children's mother called to make arrangements to pick them up when her and Reyes had a disagreement on the phone," Santos said.
"The relationship recently ended, and I guess with (Reyes), it appears he was having problems accepting it," Santos said. Police did not release the mother's name. (IMO...and the kids pay for the problems of the parents.. mother and father. Mother should have been more concerned, I say, considering that family violence is rampant on this little island!) After getting off the phone with Reyes, the mother called police out of concern, Santos said, but would not elaborate. (Concern...too late!!!)
When police arrived at the scene, they found Guam Fire Department medics treating the children and Reyes.
About a dozen police officers and detectives yesterday scoured Reyes'
wood-and-tin home, which was cordoned off with yellow police tape. Only two other houses were visible in the isolated area and police also were monitoring those houses.
Santos said he could not release any information other than that the
investigation continues. No arrests have been made and an autopsy has yet to be scheduled.
The other bad news was on FOX and the 'live' news report of the subhuman man in Oklahoma who murdered (butchered is more descriptiive) a 10-year-old girl and had plans to eat her. It's a shame that he would even afforded a trial and waste time and money to convict him. Then a probable death sentence and more years of appeals before they put him away. I say, DO IT NOW!!! In the
days of the Old West that's what they'd have done.

I couldn't do to an animal what he did to that poor little girl.

Maybe I got too soft a ? Or another one of those days that I'm not being very nice maybe.

Despite the bad news above I wish YOU and YOURS a Happy Easter! "

HOW DO WE SAY GOOD-BYE

So I hang myself or do I just cry myself to sleep each night for the rest of my life?

As each of us prepare to celebrate Easter, there's a child that will never celebrate his fourth birthday, his sister at GMH, fighting for her life because their father allegedly stabbed the three-year-old to death and almost killing the little girl.
KUAM reported this evening that the father who's 23 is in critical condition after he tried to hang himself. In a perfect world, no one would judge the man who now fights for his life at GMH, the same hospital which the little girl fights for her life. I'm not sure that if I were a doctor or nurse that I would be as caring for the man who could bring himself to stab a child hoping that it would kill the child.
How could a human being look into a child's innocent eyes, loving and caring, joyful, eyes that perhaps look forward to looking for Easter eggs and stab it to death? I can't begin to imagine it, let alone bring myself to pick up a sharp instrument and kill a living lowly animal, let alone a precious child. What has gone wrong with our people?
I think that somewhere in some newscast, I heard that April is the month for the awareness of Child Abuse. I think that we haven't done enough to bring the awareness to those who have become parents of little ones. I have shopped at Ross and at K-Mart and have witnessed mothers who talk to their children as if they were trash, not only using vile language, but mean spirited as well. I leave wondering how they'd feel if those words were the last ones their children had ever heard, but the parents that they are, they'd probably not give a care.
We really have to figure out how to handle our child abuse problem. We can't go on abusing or killing our children. We can't continue looking the other way. I hope this guy lives and I hope he pays for what he's done(allegedly) to his son and daughter and that whoever's reading this reaches out and hugs his/er child real tight and is glad for the gift of that child and that you'll say a little prayer for the little boy who went to Heaven before he got to look for the Easter eggs and for his sister who now fights for her life.

WHAT WAS SHE THINKING?

Do you suppose the has some regrets? I bet she wishes she could unring and ring the the first bell?

On the webs we weave...and try to unweave...the bells we ring and try to unring...say and try to unsay? This morning, Dr. D. Lujan went to the Uncle Fed court and was told by a visiting judge that she couldn't hire her unc lawyer because he's the lawyer for Patient A in her case and that it's like.....a conflict of interest....like....shouldn't someone have figured that out in the first place? Okay, so, the dude in Hawaii doesn't have a license to play for keeps on Guam so he's got to hook up with some firm who's not connected with patient A or anyone who's related with anyone in her case....and she's got a week to find the golden egg...oops, when's Easter? Never mind, she's got a week!
She went to court with her estranged attorney Mr. H. Trapp....who she said she didn't have any confidence with....gosh, that must've made him feel bad...wonder if he still gets paid......and, according to Jon Anderson who was on the Patti A. talk show, said the doc talked around the lawyer, talking to another attorney, one that she can't use because they represent the 'patient'.....
So, the bottom line in this very confusing case is........she's going to try to unring the bell, unsay what's said and she's got a week to find someone that can undo what's been done.........which will cost hundreds of thousands of dollars and many, many hours of lost sleep...and what would she have gotten if she had taken the advise of her first and second lawyers' advice to plead guilty and talk about patient A and whatever else she talked about to Uncle Fed and friends? Well.....she could have gotten five years of probation and a $10K fine..............a heck of a better payment plan than her friend, Dr. V. Batoyan got for a similar problem..........so I'm thinking, is the doc wondering if she should have just stayed with the guilty plea and taken her chances?

IF IT AFFECTED THE 98 ELECTIONS...WILL IT AFFECT 06 ELECTIONS

Is there a bogeyman and does he live in DC? Did he rig the '98 election? Will the outcome of this election be caused by him?

If what you hear and read is true and the powerful Tony S. and Mark C. and the Republican judge and friends wanted to rig the 98 elections so that friends could once again rule Adelup by way of doing 'things' in DC so that ugly 'news' would appear on behalf of ....(actually, if it's true, then what happened backfired because grassroots didn't buy into the 'news', they weren't going to let their sunshine team of Madeline and Carl lose the election, no matter what investigations were going on.)
Now it seems that the bogeyman has decided to tell the Feds exactly what he's done so that he doesn't have to go to jail for the rest of his life, which means that he'll probably tell everybody what he did to disrupt our elections...what he did then is coming to the surface now and is having a bad affect on Felix Camacho's run for re-election. It makes it appear that he's in the same side of the ring as the bogeyman since he's on the same side of the ring as Tony S., who's on the same side as Jack A., the Judge, et company, et cetera, et cetera....birds of a feather....et cetera....and the investigations of other people continue and continue and continue so we don't know it they're legit or if someone in DC is friends with someone here and is doing someone here a 'favor' like someone did a few years ago.....what is it about politics making strange bedfellows?
I actually kinda feel sorry for Felix because I really don't think he knew about the Abramoff deal, he's not that kind of dude, but someone who wanted him at Adelup might have done it for him....and now, he may lose the re-election bid because the issue has surfaced.
Intrigue.........and confusing.....I sure do miss K57's website....wonder what all those people would say about this now!

OOPS?

How do you take back the words?

I know that I could never be a lawyer because I would be too confused about how I could save my doctor client after she told all the Feds that she gave drugs to Patient A and his friends and that she was guilty of same. I wouldn't know how to go back to those people (the Feds) with a straight face and say, "Oops, we meant to say, we're not guilty! Oh, and what she said? She didn't mean it!"
So, it seems, according to KUAM's reporting, that Dr. D. Lujan told her first lawyer that she didn't want to plead guilty but he told her to so she did...then...she got the other lawyer and he told her to plead guilty and that she could change later but later never came even after she asked and asked...letters supposedly showing that she asked to change the plea....but the lawyer never changed the plea....and finally.....days, hours before the sentencing....after all the words are out there/here/everywhere/patient A revealed.....she gets a new lawyer hires her uncle/cousin/relative and wants a change in plea and says that she really was never guilty in the first place and wants a trial........and so......here I am....really confused...
How do you reveal all those secrets and claim you're innocent? I'm thinking that if she told the Feds everything they wanted to know that they would have given her the same sentence they gave one John Martinez who cooperated with them in a case against Gil Shinohara and Willy Flores et company....Martinez getting no jail time...could it be that the doctor got cold feet at the last minute? Could it be that she didn't tell all? What could it be that she'd want to put herself through hell with a trial, costing hundreds of thousands of dollars plus angst? I'm so confused!
We'll see what Uncle Fed says tomorrow...there's still a hearing in her honor at that nice big building in Anigua...it's a sentencing for her...maybe they'll play nice nice and she won't have to have a trial after all?
