|Today, January 20, 2004, Judge Glenn Thompson made it abundantly clear to everyone
involved that he intends to turn Daniel Wade Moore loose--to excuse him for any
responsibility for the robbing, beating, extended torture, and murder of Karen Croft
He began the proceeding by ordering me--the surviving spouse of the homicide
victim--to leave the proceeding. He did it because his friend Sherman Powell asked him
to; Powell had me subpoenaed as a witness in the hearing (after the hearing had begun).
So I was banned from the proceeding.
Note the following quote from the Constitution of the State of Alabama:
15-23-67. Right to be present throughout proceedings.
The victim has the right to be present throughout all criminal
proceedings pursuant to Section 15-14-50 et seq.
Definition of victim: A person against whom the criminal offense
has been committed, or if the person is killed or incapacitated, the
spouse, sibling, parent, child, or guardian of the person...
The rationalization given to violate my Constitutional rights? That Powell and
Halbrooks wanted to call me as a witness in this hearing. Now they've rested their case,
but did NOT CALL ME AS A WITNESS! In spite of that, they have not released me
from subpoena, so I won't be able to attend the hearing tomorrow, either.
In Judge Glenn Thompson's courtroom:
the Constitution of the State of Alabama is inconsequential...
DNA evidence is inconsequential...
And the robbery, beating, sexual assault, extended torture with a knife, and murder of
Karen Croft Tipton is inconsequential...
The killer and the crazies are celebrating.
