Brittanee's 5-Year Anniversary Vigil

It was the weekend after Easter in Myrtle Beach, SC, but for some, this weekend was just as special. Friday April 25 was the 5-year anniversary of the day Brittanee Drexel went missing in 2009.
The date was commemorated with a candlelight vigil.

And here we have the latest from YouTube about Brittanee  Drexel, with eight minutes of images to show you just how big an event it really was.

It lasted through Saturday as well. This is just a very small sample of the many news reports that have been churning out continuously throughout the weekend. It is now Sunday evening, and I'm sure that more will come after I close here, but let me finish with my favorite picture of Brittanee while she was still with us.

Something Rotten in Connecticut - Part Two

It reads like a Stephen King novel.
But it's the news, which makes it even scarier. This really happened, and it hasn't been absolved yet. Not even close.
It is hard to decide which question should be asked first, as there are so many of them, but I'd like to start with;
Why is Connecticut treating victims like criminals?
Why are suspected killers treated like VIPs?

The parents of a missing person have been sued by the suspected killer (or someone who knows the killer) for putting up posters of their missing son, which she had been tearing down, and had admitted in court to doing so. The police and town officials see nothing wrong with what the poster ripper was doing, and even overlook the fact that she was littering. This person claims that the displaying of the missing person posters are causing her "mental anguish."
Guess who got arrested?

Tales of Bizarro World!, you may be thinking. They're doing everything backward!
How are they getting away with it? Is this the expected norm for this region of America?

Now I promised to stick with the facts here, and I intend to keep that promise.

It is well established that the former girlfriend of the missing man is now or has been in a relationship with a local politician, for both have admitted to it in court.
The local politician has never been considered as a suspect.
To say why would be stating an opinion.
I'll just stick with the facts.

I will encourage anyone reading this to draw your own conclusion, and to form your own opinion.
Just promise me one thing, That you will read the whole story and know everything that happened before you decide what went wrong in Woodbridge, Waterbury, and all nearby towns in Connecticut.
Oh, one more thing please.
Decide what would be the right thing to do to in compensation to the grieving parents.
I'd like to hear what you come up with.

UPDATE 4/14/14
I have just found this YouTube video, and I want everyone to see it.

Something Rotten in Connecticut

Well Folks, I thought I have already seen my fair share of the most incredible and outrageous crime cases one can imagine to be happening in America. I thought nothing would ever shock me again when it comes to corruption in the courts.
I was wrong.
The case of Billy Smolinski Jr. is the most extreme example yet.
I knew something was very, very wrong with this case the first time I read about it.
And the more I looked into it, the more wrong it appeared!
I'm still wondering how the town of Woodbridge CT allowed such a thing to happen.

The story begins with Billy Smolinski, who went missing after breaking up with his girlfriend, over an affair with a well known elected official. While the parents of the missing person are going around the area putting up posters in attempt to find their son, the former girlfriend is following behind them tearing the posters down. For some reason which has never been explained, the ex-girlfriend feels threatened by these posters. And for reasons unexplained, she has the sympathy of the police and the town officials, even though she appears to be quite insane.

Why no sympathy to the parents of a missing son? As if the parents have not already suffered enough, they are subjected to further abuse  You would think the police would want to help them out, but they do everything that is not helpful. Eventually, the ex-girlfriend takes the parents to court and sues them for mental anguish.
And she won!

This has so many red flags it's ridiculous. But then more red flags appear, and more, and more, but the town of Woodbridge, and even the neighboring towns, somehow manage to ignore them all.

And this is just the tip of the iceberg.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the more you learn about this story, the worse it gets!

To start you off...
...and then we go to...
at which point we learn that three of the former girlfriend's children have died under suspicious circumstances..

And then, incredibly enough, it gets even worse.

To be continued.
