Robert Wagner interviewed by Katie Part 1
I've watched this interview before, but I took the time to really listen to it this morning. Katie obviously will support her father, but her interesting innuendoes in this first part of the interview, including "Natalie gave you everything, but took it all away" and about "reading all the other garbage" -- this is how lies become enforced. This is how truth is stomped upon. This is exactly how celebrity has an advantage, and TAKES advantage.
I recently took a little time to work on a manuscript involving a different subject, a fictional depiction of a true crime, yet based on actual research, a crime considered the trial of the century, and in my opinion, the crime of the century, so shortly into this century as well. I'm not sure if anything will ever become of it at this
time, partly due to something I really admire: THE PUBLIC.
The public is joining forces and vowing to boycott anything they consider promotional about the Casey Anthony trial. But sometimes the public forgets that there are things that need to be said, things that need to be told. Otherwise, we are left drowning in the same pool of lies and deception that kills any victim's only hope for justice when the system fails us.
Of course, what I wrote, my proudest chapter of that manuscript, was a testament to our judicial system. What I wrote was nothing to exploit a victim (as was never my intent with Goodbye Natalie Goodbye Splendour), but rather to draw attention to flaws in our system, to professionals who don't get their jobs done properly. There was evidence available in the Anthony trial that was never submitted, possibly due to over-confidence, maybe a tad of pompousness, maybe pure neglect. A little research, a few phone calls can tell a writer a lot. I actually spoke with States witnesses who informed me the prosecution ignored things they pleaded to tell, evidence they tried to submit to prove all the lies told on the stand in that trial. The end result, in my opinion, is that yet ANOTHER killer walks amongst us. Another silent victim receives little justice.
Yes, I admire our system, but I recognize its flaws. There are flaws in most every huge system, but I truly believe that crime victims are often short-changed and ignored, and the results bring national unity such as in the Simpson trial and the Anthony trial.
In Natalie's case, this 30th year of her suspicious death, I am going to do all I can to find answers from the law that failed her. The petition will soon be turned in, and everyone who is still frustrated over the lack of justice in Natalie's case, thank you for having signed the petition, and I will let you know soon if there is more you can do more.
