Liar Liar Pants on Fire

I hate to interrupt the great posting by the gang lately. But I just had to chime in on a subject that frustrates me, which is the whole Andrea Yates retrial thing.

To my complete astonishment, the MSM has decided to semantically white-wash the perjured testimony of the states primary expert, and continues to paint Ms. Yates as a goulish monster whose premeditated murder of her five children was motivated by a desire to free herself of the burden of motherhood. The AP wire uses words to described Dr. Deitz's perjured testimony as "erroneous" in three different stories and KSAT news "incorrect" or "erroneous" in multiple broadcasts, and so on.

But my stars, Harris County brought this guy back again to testify as to her state of mind!

Fine.

A lie defined:

"To utter falsehood with an intention to deceive; to say or do that which is intended to deceive another, when he a right to know the truth, or when morality requires a just representation."

From the AP wire today:

"Dietz told jurors in the first trial that she knew drowning the children was wrong. Dietz, also a consultant for the "Law & Order" television series, said in the first trial that one episode showed a woman being acquitted by reason of insanity after drowning her children in the tub. After Yates' conviction, those involved in the case discovered no such episode existed.

But the judge is expected to block testimony on that issue in this trial.

Yates, 42, is being retried in the drownings because an appeals court overturned her 2002 conviction because Dietz's testimony about the nonexistent "Law & Order" show might have influenced the jury."

I'll let readers decide what is going on here.

I should also say that Yates' attorneys went a long way to having Texas' insanity defense laws thrown out, although I can't readily site the ruling. Besides, check this out:

"TYLER, Texas — Dressed in white pajamas, Deanna Laney slipped out of bed without disturbing her husband of 18 years and headed down the hall to kill her children.

It was 11:30 p.m. on the Friday before Mother's Day last year, and God was speaking to the 39-year-old, devoutly religious housewife again.

The Lord told Laney the end was near, He was coming and she needed to kill her sons to prove her complete and unconditional faith in Him, Laney told a forensic psychiatrist in December."

That trial was last year. Psycho-mom walked. No kidding. She didn't drown her kids, rather, she bashed their heads in with a large rock.

I happened to KNOW Elaine Brae Shook, the "Corpus Christi Occult Slayer," who drowned her two toddlers in the bay because she thought they were devil-babies. She did it to free their souls. She had previously dived into a Boston-area canal with her eight-month old baby because she was despairing over a breakup with her boyfriend. She went to the State Hospital for three years and then walked free.

She committed suicide in 1997.

What puzzles me is the level of frothy mad-dog revenge the MSM is seeking in this case. Hell, when I was a kid in Houston growing up there were so many poor women jumping in the bayou with their children, or stuffing them in ovens, etc., to get the Devil out that it became rather boring and common-place.

I think it is because she defied Rusty, who is the poster boy for the "batshit rightwing cliques." How could she hurt poor Rusty?

Andrea Yates is going to die.

Is Harris County paying Dr. Death for THIS round of "expert"
testimony?

I don't know SD. Lucy told me at supper that they weren't seeking the death penalty this time but I was not aware of that development.
