I leave the entire article intact, without editing, but I highlight the part where you can see the real Dr. and Mrs. Oz, with all the vulgarity and disdain for the press. Excerpts from the Article: Dr. Oz for Senate is headquartered in a patch of strip mall next to a Mexican restaurant in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, where the candidate’s father-in-law, Dr. Gerald Lemole, maintains a medical office down the road from the Lemole family farm,...

My friend and great lawyer, Steve Hampton, sent me this Article, and added, quite correctly: “CO’s in Kansas with license to kill the mentally ill. Especially if they are a minority. In all the descriptions of this incident I see nothing about the CO’s asking for help from mental health. Their policy, like Delaware DOC’s policy, is use force to solve every problem.” Excerpts from the Article: A Kansas district attorney announced he...

ANATOMY OF A MURDER CONFESSION Texas Ranger James Holland became famous for cajoling killers into confessing to their crimes. But did some of his methods — from lying to suspects to having witnesses hypnotized — ensnare innocent people, too?

Posted by on Jan 19, 2022 in Featured, Other Issues |

We hear “Texas Ranger” and we think “the ultimate lawman”. I remember posting an article several years ago suggesting that Texas Ranger James Holland was amassing many false confessions, using questionable tactics in his interviews with suspects.  Here, The Marshall Project revisits the issue. I leave most of this Article in tact, not edited.  Read it for yourself and you tell me: is Texas Ranger James Holland framing...
