The Biggest news for me this week was the Lafonse Dixon Guilty verdict. A jury with brains, common sense and a moral compass, put together the facts as presented by the prosecution and made the only determination possible. Unlike the Caylee Anthony jury, this jury cared about justice for Celeste Fronsman, who was beaten and burned alive by Dixon and two co-defendants.
ABOVE: CELESTE FRONSMAN
Disgraced jury foreman David Angelo, should be looking over his shoulder for the rest of his life and wondering if federal agents are going to knock on his door and charge him with jury tampering. Every single time a jury does the right thing, in a circumstantial case, it hi-lights the impossibility that 12 people, each having more than one brain cell, could have dismissed the overwhelming case against baby killer, Casey Anthony and set this monster free.
MONSTER MOTHER / CHILD KILLER
Along with William Zervakos of “I told the jury not to deliberate” because “Jodi was abused by Travis” fame…they both should be in permanent hiding out of shear humiliation and embarrassment. Two classic examples of “Jury Foremen Gone Wild”, re-writing the law and the rules of sequestration, all while throwing justice out the window in favor of something else.
Unlike the 2 examples above, the foreman in the LaFonse Dixon trial has not tried to “make money” off of his/her jury service, although they certainly did a stellar and honorable job following the law. A true citizen and a private hero, this jury foreman quietly performed his/her civic duty, with grace and care for the victim and society alike…as it should be.
This jury did the right thing because they cared about justice and took their oath seriously. This jury did not view the courtroom as a way to capitalize and make money for themselves, rewarding a killer and destroying the public’s faith in the system. This jury was not going to set LaFonse Dixon free, back out into society, to kill again and send the message to America that “crime pays.” They were going to go over the evidence, use their brains and do the right thing. It was important to Celeste’s jury to get justice.
This jury was honorable.
Caylee Anthony’s jury should CRINGE every time there is a just verdict in this country and know that the first thing many people thin about is THEM.

The worst jury ever to be selected in the history of trials.
Perhaps Celeste’s jury was honorable because there was little attention paid to her trial, therefore no selling power to their juror vote? Perhaps there was justice in this case because Headline News could not bring their traveling circus side show out to Ohio, and try to insert themselves into the actual trial as much as possible? Perhaps Celeste got justice because unlike Caylee Anthony and Travis Alexander, she was not murdered over and over and over again in our system and via rabid defense attorneys, minimizing and defaming victims on television? Perhaps this jury was able to maintain their own dignity and the dignity of the process because they were spared the nightly screaming, belittling the lives of the victims, if not erasing their memory altogether?
Without unscrupulous participants and the smell of money…the state proved beyond a reasonable doubt that Lafonse Dixon was present and part of a conspiracy to beat, burn and murder Celelste Fronsman.
No, they didn’t have a video tape of the crime taking place and they didn’t have mountains of forensic evidence either. What this jury had, was intelligence enough to know, that the lack of forensic evidence was a direct result of the fact that LaFonse Dixon ordering his co-defendants to set Cleleste Fronsman on fire.
Unlike the rotten Florida 12, they were not going to reward LaFonse Dixon for his evil deed.
This jury did not reward the defendant for his abhorrent behavior as the “Pinellas Pinheads” have. This jury didn’t need to see a videotape.
This jury was not the Caylee Anthony jury and there was no William Zervakos there to tell them NOT to deliberate.
I am firmly convinced that Headline News and their biased commentary, is perverting our system and corrupting justice. The Caylee Anthony jurors prove that when television gets involved…the LOWEST common denominator, will crawl out from under their rocks. I often wonder where the 12 stupidest people in the world (ie: the village idiots of Florida) are right now. Of course I don’t believe that stupidity was the reason that a killer walked free. I believe it was pure greed and rotten character.
After keeping my eyes on the Mario McNeill trial (Guilty of murdering Shaniya Davis, sentenced to death) and others…I am 100% convinced that the quieter the trial…the better chance for justice.
Tim Miller, back in the saddle again?
I live on Long Island and an autistic boy, Avonte Oquendo, who is still lost on the west end of Long Island and has been on everyone’s mind.
The story made the evening news, every night since it happened but last week the broadcast would be different. Who should be talking with reporters in Long Island city… but Tim Miller. Tim sounded upbeat and was proud of the equipment he had available to aid in the search.
“We’ve got a lot of resources, a lot of success,” EquuSearch founder Tim Miller said. “We’ve got our horses and four wheelers and ground searchers, drone airplane, regular airplane, helicopter.”
Jodi Arias “Swan Song”…
“Weakest most ineffective judge on the planet” Judge Sherry Stevens, has once again been put in charge of what I have come to call the “Jodi Arias Swan Song.”
What should be over with in a matter of no more than 3 weeks will last all year if Judge Stevens has her way. “Let the taxpayers pay for my incompetence.”, she seems to say as she caters to the whims of a “psychotic fame whore” and the equally fame obsessed defense team, all literally willing to do and say anything to get more face time and “exposure” for themselves, dragging Judge Sherry Stevens into the Rabbit hole with them!
The question still remains who has a twitter account? Whether it really is Jodi Arias sending tweets to a few straggling people…or just an anonymous troll is anyone’s guess. I no longer pay any attention to her. Perhaps the twitter account really belongs to her decidedly trashy family, who has proven they are no strangers to the term “internet trolling”? Maybe they are trying to squeeze another dollar out of Travis’s murder…so that they can make another trip out to the Hoover Damn? Perhaps this time they want a trip to Universal Orlando instead?
Even if it is Arias, who really cares? Whether she receives the death penalty or not is a question but there is no doubt that after this hearing, she will sink into the depths of the Arizona prison system and into the category of “Jodi who?”
