Sometimes, there just isn’t any justice in the world. Really, some days I feel like no matter what you do, no matter how hard good cops work to catch the bad guys, no matter if a prosecutor takes a case and does everything humanly possible to get justice for the victim and his family, it only takes one asshole to fuck it up for everybody.
Take the case of Dylan Morse.
On Valentine’s Day, 2009, Morse was driving home after attending a Sonoma State University frat party with his best friend, Ryne Spitzer, when he ran a red light and T-boned another car driven by 22-year-old Alexander Ruiz and his girlfriend, 25-year-old Vanessa King.

excerpts from the article by Todd Ruger – The Sarasota (Florida) Herald-Tribune
10-05-2009 — “It is most extraordinary and extremely rare that one can actually hear such emotions in the voice of an innocent victim, who is doomed to be murdered,” Judge Deno Economou said at the sentencing hearing of Michael L. King Friday.
Moments later, the judge declared that King should be put to death for the January 2008 abduction, rape and murder of Lee, a North Port mother of two.
The judge’s voice wavered and cracked several times as he read aloud Lee’s pleas for her life and for another chance to see her family.
CHEYENNE CHERRY GETS TWO YEARS FOR ROASTING CAT IN OVEN
excerpts of an article by Dorian Block – The New York Daily News
Kitty killer Cheyenne Cherry will serve two years in jail for roasting her friend’s pet in a 500-degree oven.
The Bronx teen agreed to the deal Wednesday for breaking into her friend’s Bronx apartment on May 6 and standing by as her 14-year accomplice stuffed tiny Tiger Lily in an oven.
Cherry’s pal was sentenced in August to 18 months in juvenile jail for placing the cat in Valerie Hernandez’s oven.
Cherry, 17, appeared calm compared to July when she pleaded guilty to attempted burglary and animal cruelty in Bronx Supreme Court and stuck out her tongue and yelled, “It’s dead, bitch” to an animal activist in the audience.
Well, God was at it again folks. We’re all aware The Almighty’s famous sense of humor, and this past Saturday night, November 28th, 2009, right here in my home turf of the Connecticut River Valley, He’d showed us all that He’s still got it.
In East Hampton, Connecticut, a medium sized burg east of my hometown of Middletown, Cara L. Culbert drove her car off the side of the road. No big deal, you say, except according to the Middletown Press:
police had received a report of black Chevrolet Monte Carlo operating erratically on Route 66 at about 1:00 p.m. Saturday.
Police came upon the car off the right side of the road, the chief said. When the officer spoke to the driver, he said her speech was slurred and she appeared to be under the influence of some substance.
