A Rousing Call to Action!
Heather, who seems be from your neck of the woods, has left the following comment on the previous post. I find it very much to the point, and what the time requires:
"OK, this is ridiculous...it's time for us ALL to do more than just blog about the lunacy of this trial! I say we picket the DA's office with signs and the courthouse as well (when the new trial begins). Major media must get involved. Keep bugging them, and keep bugging them, until something is done. EVERYONE in Bend needs to know what is going on!! I can't do anything for personal reasons, but I would ask that if there are readers of this blog from Bend, please band together and do something. I cannot imagine what kevin must be going through right now. All this is so frustrating for me, I can't imagine what it's like for him and his family. Insane!!!!"Yes, everyone in Bend, Redmond, and all of those Deschutes County places, needs to know what is going on. And trust me; in the aftermath of Kevin Driscoll's hung-jury trial, there is a LOT going on. Since yesterday, I have been communicating off the record and must maintain a certain level of confidence —mainly because the criminal justice establishment in Deschutes County is beginning to play hardball, and I don't want to recklessly endanger things at this point. We are balancing a delicate tea-tray, so I will be circumspect in my style of communication.
Briefly, they are going to give Kevin another trial. And in the process, they are going to build a new case from the ground up. But THIS TIME. . . they do not want to see a repeat of the fiasco they endured the first time! Do you see which direction this is moving in. . .?
My poor brain is buzzing like a swarming bee hive with all the things i COULD be talking about. But I need to settle my thoughts. I need to get a grip. And I need to think about staging. SO. . . I will be parcelling things out little by little over the days to come.
For now, the word is that Kevin will have a hearing on 23 Dec, 2009, to see about getting his house arrest lifted. And when will the second trial begin, you ask? I do not know, but I expect it will be a few months. You know how these things go. They drag on and on.
