WDT: No Justice for Garrett....Ever

     Big County DA Mary Rain says the judge got it wrong and that there will be no consideration of other suspects in the 2011 murder of 12 year old Garrett Phillips of Potsdam.
     After a crash and burn courtroom loss this week Ms. Rain held an invitation only presser to announce Oral Hillary is the killer and there will be no further investigation. The legal scholar and one term DA opted against the old "jury has spoken" approach in favor of being the bitter and vindictive prosecutor.
       Prosecutors do sometimes lose even though they have tremendous advantages going in including unlimited resources. It's the law that protects the accused and in this case Judge Felix Catena said the state didn't meet the burden of proof.
       Clearly, Ms. Rain did believe Mr. Hillary strangled the lad, but there is a time to shut your pie hole, and that opportunity was missed by the DA.

Nice that you and perrykos can give a report on a press conference that you were not invited to and did not attend. It is also informative to know what the faculty lounge professor who didn't attend the trial or speak to any investigators or speak to the defendant, has to say about the case.

So now the future person that does not exist and will never exist or be prosecuted, gets to say the DA said the case is closed, rather than the DA already prosecuted who they were sure did it beyond a reasonable doubt. Big difference huh? Not.

Ms. Rain has never been accused of being politically adept.

It is disappointing to see the "tunnel vision" she has developed with regard to the Phillips murder. There were a set of fingerprints found by the window that investigators believe was where the killer escaped that have never been identified but clearly did not belong to Hillary or any family member. Whose prints were they? Also, who was the person in the window allegedly seen by a witness that was changing a tire by the murder scene?

Mary Rain can pout all she wants but, until those questions are answered, maybe, just maybe, she should look beyond her tunnel vision.

This entire charade was brought about by a very emotional family and mother who loved a child beyond belief. They had their beliefs and were probably intitled to that opinion.
You had a very lazy and incompetant police presence during the original investigation that were all too eager to arrest someone, anyone..After the arrest, a DA step in and did her job the best she could with what was given her.. She had a very difficult decision to make and she made it based on the evidence given her(none).. She had just been involved with a very complicated murder trial which after the third attempt the defendant was found not guilty .."Again police work brough her down(lies) by the police..
The present DA needed a matter to get herself elected and presented herself as the lord Jesus Christ and made promises she really couldnt keep especially to a family so emotionaly crushed by what had happened.
This DA used every illegal and suggestive means to make this defendants life miserable for the last three years and lied during the trial.. She was so incompetant she asked and very good DA from another County to help.. His help turned out to be, he found out how incompetant she was and he was forced to take over the trial with the little evidence they really had..
I hope the judge realizes he made the proper decision because Mary Rain is to stupid to realize it , and like someone just said if they ever match those unknown fingerprints with someone Mary Rain has really hindered the prosecution of that person or persons..
The only thing of certainy is the fact Mary Rain will not be the person attempting to prosecute in this County.

Note to self:if ever calling someone "incompetant" be sure to spell it correctly as incompetent,or it makes self look stupid and incompetent.

8:45, if the mother had loved her son "beyond belief", she wouldn't have brought the man home to begin with. PC can really bite you in the butt at times.
