Devil of Death

We’ve heard the story before–a so-called “Angel of Death” cuts people’s lives short by sinister killings in a medical setting because they have access and ability. It’s happened again this time in Italy. Daniela Poggiali is thought to have killed 98 patients in the course of a year (source), and as many as three in one day!

While the story is mortifying, Daniela took it a step further and took selfies with the victims smiling.  Yes, smiling!

It’s absolutely chilling.

Don’t search for the pictures unless you want to feel really creeped out!  I warn you. I’ve seen them and they are flat out awful.  Thankfully, they do blur the victim in the one photo released.

Charles Cullen was a U.S. nurse that is suspected of killing upwards of 400 people over a 16 year period. Sadly, hospitals became suspicious of him, but simply let him go, and he was left to continue to murdering more people at different hospitals each time he was let go. And he was let go multiple times after suspicious behavior.

Cullen told 60 Minutes that he killed people because he felt sorry for his patients, but that was one big fat lie with hot spots to prove it.

I think these people should be called the devils of death, personally.

Another Cosby Accuser Who I Believe

Another accuser came forward on the Dr. Phil show named “Lisa” this week. Her story is consistent with the other stories we have heard, her words flow and she gives us no reason to believe she is telling us anything but the truth.

I have been flabbergasted by the people who think these women are simply lying. To get 20 strangers to come up with a “story” like this is unheard of–especially since they don’t even know each other. It may happen with one or two, but not 20. And furthermore, most liars lie because there is incentive or motive to do so. They will gain something, and right now it doesn’t appear that these women have anything to gain.  The statute of limitations has run out.

What I found most appalling, however, in this case is that some people feel no one should accuse Cosby of anything unless they go to court, because as they seem to feel that Cosby is just a sitting duck with no rights. These people seem to believe that anyone can ruin someone’s reputation and there is nothing they can do about it. And that’s flat out UNTRUE!

Cosby has every right to get justice in the courts! If he feels that these women are slandering him, then he has every right to go after them for justice to clear his name, but as you can see, he doesn’t dare tempt that with a ten foot pole. Oh no, he knows what will happen if he does. He will give them the right to counter sue and expose him even faster, so the lack of a response from Cosby cements his guilt even more, if you ask me. And we all know Cosby has the money to sue, but he is also keenly aware that powerhouse attorney Gloria Allred is willing and able to step up and match him dollar for dollar to get the justice these victims deserve!

Hannah Overton’s Conviction Overturned!!


More ABC News Videos | ABC World News

I am so thrilled to learn that Hannah Overton’s conviction has been overturned. This poor woman and her family suffered from Hannah being wrongly convicted.

Back in October of 2008, I watched her story on 20/20 and immediately trusted her despite a handful of clues that made people look at her. You can read my post here.

And now this week, seven years later, Hannah was finally freed!

This is the best news ever!!

It feels so good to see the truth prevail!!

Let’s just pray that they do not bring further charges again.

So happy for Hannah and her family!

Serial Podcast

Many of you have told me about the Serial podcast and how riveting it is, and that you’d like my opinion. I typically don’t look at older cases unless I can hear the suspect speak prior to or during trial. The reason is once someone has been convicted of a crime, the pressure on them diminishes and the clues to deception will also diminish or completely cease.

I have had a busy month and I haven’t had time to even open the podcast so I have a few questions.

Does the podcast have interviews from prior to or during the trial of the key people? That is most essential for me.

If there are, please point me to the podcasts that contain these interviews (with time markers please) and I will see if I can fit it into my schedule.

I am not one who likes to listen to others tell the story because their bias and opinions can skew the truth. I rely 100% on the actual people who are being looked at to the get the truth. They are most reliable source we have.

Janay Rice and Camille Cosby

Janay Rice spoke out for the first time since she was knocked out by her NFL football player husband, Ray Rice, earlier this year.

It’s very painful to see Janay talk in complete denial–protecting Ray, and showing anger toward the public and the media for airing their story. She is clearly putting the blame in the wrong place, and unconditionally accepting her husband.

Ray’s callous and cold behavior is not “shock” or disbelief when he is shown on video ignoring Janay who is passed out cold on the floor. The video shows a pompous, arrogant man who has no regard for what he had just done to his wife.

This does not bode well for their relationship or future, and I have fear for Janay’s well being if she stays with Ray as she seems to be currently doing.

Many people have asked me about Camille Cosby’s behavior in the wake of the Cosby situation, too.

People wonder why these women stay so loyal to a man in such dark situations.

For the average person, walking away from your life amidst difficulties is hard. You have to literally start your life over. That by itself is scares a lot people into denial and causes them to blindly and often dangerously try again, and again, or turn their back on problems in hopes they will go away.

Now add that these two women are married to men who have earned substantial amounts of money, albeit different for each man, but walking away from a well-to-do lifestyle is even harder. Imagine going from a lovely home, staff that cares for you, and a top quality life and walking out into a bleak cold world where you have no way to maintain your lifestyle.

Furthermore, these men are strong dominant men, and typically these types marry subservient women who cater to their husband’s celebrity and fame, and are not used to being the dominant and defiant one. They are not used to being the one in charge, making decisions and controlling their future. They are not comfortable executing big changes, and so they often go into denial.

It’s not pretty to watch, but is part of the human spirit to want to keep what is good and push away what is bad at all costs.

So even if these two women have ideas that thing aren’t right, it’s much easier in the “short term” to turn their backs than to deal with these situations. Life appears to be, at least temporarily, more comfortable right now staying put and pushing away the problems.

The reality is in the long run it will be that much harder, but they don’t have the foresight to see it nor do they want to.

Darren Wilson


More ABC US news | ABC World News

I have reviewed the Darren Wilson interview and testimony this morning. This is an extremely emotional case for people, and when people are emotional, their ability to be logical and see the truth plummets. That’s scientific fact. I highly recommend reading up on neuroscience experiments that study emotion and reasoning, and how it affects our decision making process. You may be surprised to learn how your emotions will trump logic every time.

With that, sharing what I see as the truth right now will have little effect on people because I won’t change minds or get people to consider the elements I point out. Most people don’t work at delineating their emotions from reasoning. It’s a skill that takes a lot of practice to develop and do effectively. Hence, I will either confirm that my thoughts align with yours, or that they don’t, in which, you are likely to say I have lost it or missed it. And frankly, I see no point in doing that because every time I have done so in the past, the insults that get wielded in my direction made it clear it wasn’t worth my investment because I didn’t effect change for the good. Instead I caused lots of frustration and anger, bad feelings and insults. And that’s not productive.

So instead of alienating an audience on a polar and highly emotional topic, I would prefer to continue to discuss cases where people aren’t as emotionally invested, and we can have great discussions which foster growth and change.

I hope you can respect my decision.

Thank you,

Renee

Bill Cosby’s Leaks

Everyone knows Bill Cosby doesn’t want to speak or address the accusations made by 16 women.  And why would he?  Being silent has worked for him for decades.  Furthermore, we all know the more one speaks if he is guilty, the faster he will hang the noose around his neck. But even without Bill Cosby speaking very much, in the little he has spoken, he has shown very supportive behavioral evidence that he is quite capable of the accusations made.  Mind you, I have already seen two women speak out and believe them, and we can’t have both sides being honest, but I want to share what Bill Cosby is revealing and what it means.

Bill Cosby did an interview on November 6, 2014, with an Associated Press reporter (see above).  They released this video amidst allegations.   In this video, we see Cosby ask the reporter not to air his reply that he doesn’t want to speak about the accusations. That in and of itself says little.  However, it is HOW he broached the topic with the reporter that is very revealing and quite telling of the type of person the real Bill Cosby is.  Listen to what Bill Cosby says.

He says, “I know I didn’t say anything, but I’m asking your integrity that since I didn’t want to say anything, but I did answer you in terms of ‘I don’t want to say anything, of what value will it have?'”

The use of the word integrity here is stunning.

Bill Cosby, whose integrity is being questioned, is telling this reporter that essentially if he airs this video, he has no integrity.  That’s jaw dropping how he turns the tables.

The reporter never promised him anything and Cosby’s admits it, yet Cosby is twisting the facts and being extremely manipulative.  This action by Cosby says a ton about his personality and it is anything but “Huxtable” in quality.   Instead, he is skillfully trying to put his lack of credibility or integrity in question on this reporter!  This is jaw dropping and not the behavior of an ethical, honest or decent man.

If I witnessed this in person, my trust would be revoked for him immediately by these actions alone.

Cosby goes even further with this young reporter and says, “I think if you want to consider yourself to be serious that it will not appear anywhere.”

This is a threat in no simple terms.

Cosby is basically saying if you want to be a serious professional here, you better not do this.  He is implicating without saying it directly that he will make sure the guy is not taken as a serious reporter if he leaks it!  Why else would he say this?

The reporter did absolutely nothing wrong, and yet Cosby has leveled two serious attacks on him trying to implicate him as unethical and unprofessional if he doesn’t do what Cosby wants!  When the entire time it is Cosby who is being questioned for being unethical and unprofessional.  Cosby tries to the turn the tables with incredible ease!!  It’s flat out chilling. He is a man who is used to wielding extreme manipulation and control on people. I can assure you honest people with integrity would never speak like this to someone.  It is highly supportive that Cosby is everything he is being accused of and maybe more.

And that’s not all Cosby has revealed.

He told a reporter on Friday in Florida, “I know people are tired of me not saying anything, but a guy doesn’t have to answer to innuendos.”

This statement is hotter than a potato coming out of a brick oven!

If you are accused of being a serial rapist who drugged women, would you refer to this as “innuendos”?  I would bet my last dollar you would not.  You would flatly DENY the allegations, but Cosby has yet to deny anything. Ever.

You should take notice.

And instead of a flat out rejecting of the accusations, he softens them to the point of absurdity with the word “innuendos”.

Add to that he doesn’t even put himself in the equation.  He says “a guy”.  He does not talk in first person. It’s highly notable.

People who do harm to others in society often have a horrible time saying the things they’ve done, because its too close for them to utter the words. They are too hard to say if they are, in fact, guilty. Murderers will often say the person “died” or “disappeared” but cannot say murder or killed.  And here we have Cosby who can’t say “rape”, or even put himself in the same sentence.

So Cosby gives us really strong behavioral evidence that is supportive he is not honest.  We can clearly see that he is extremely manipulative and controlling, and lacks integrity to turn the tables so fast on an innocent reporter.  Now add that, you have 16 women coming forward who show no evidence that is contradictory to their stories, and tell me who you believe…

Think of all the innocent people you have seen in your life who were accused of a serious crime and who refused to speak.  How many can you think of?  I ask you, my readers, to try to think of people who refused to speak when accused of one or more serious crimes who turned up to be innocent.  Can you think of anyone?   I can’t think of one, but I am willing to try to find an example.

People will tell you who they are, if you just listen.

“Your actions speak so loudly, I can not hear what you are saying.”
