~ A Battered and Murdered Family Members Semi-Nude Photo is Paraded and Displayed ~
Here’s the scenario; your daughter, mother or sister is found, by her ex-husband, in the serene surroundings of the one place she retreats to for a few moments of privacy — the all too comforting whirlpool bath where she has sought solitude and revitalization of life — later you are notified she has met with her demise. Initial coroner’s report: accidental death. It just doesn’t add up! Why?
There was no water in the tub, her hair was dry, and to top it off her purse where she keeps all her most valuable possessions was found in the car — in the garage. Her marriage of twenty-one years ended in a bitter divorce battle. Her ex-husband, a Police Sergeant, made numerous threats against her life and even went as far as battering her.
After her husband remarried a woman thirty years younger than he, following a period of shacking up in the ex-wife’s basement with his new found mistress with their joint children sleeping just one floor above, his mistress, turned Barbie doll wife, was presumed to have perished after months of searching for any signs leading to her existence. The cop was now being looked at, but this time around, in a very different light, not as a grieving victim, but as a killer.
Upon exhumation of his third wife, yes the woman found in the bathtub was wife number three, and the woman who went missing was wife number four, his third wife’s death was now reexamined and her death reclassified as a homicide. Wives number one and two admitted to his brutality and his illicit wayward ways with the women, and soon after marrying him both marriages ended in quick uncontested divorce’s.
This is less about the case, and more about the injustice of a blog site, ironically, going by the name “Justice Cafe”. Justice Cafe has dedicated its objective to reporting the alleged “facts” in the case of the State of Illinois vs. Drew Peterson. Peterson is the Bowlingbrook, Illinois Police Sergeant who stands on trial for the crime of murdering his third wife Kathleen Savio. The problem; they illegally posted a semi-nude court evidence photo to their website (reported to the Will County State’s Attorney’s Office on 8/29/2012) and other bloggers have nabbed the photo and are posting it over the internet.
The fact I have a bias, as my wife is related to Kathleen (first cousin’s), I have decided not to use this as a forum to express my opinion, or to debate on the case. I would like you, as readers, to consider one thing, and one thing only… The Justice Cafe, a blog that preaches civil justice and morality, somehow got their hands on a court document, a semi-nude crime-scene photo of a deceased woman, which was/is a court photo and evidence. Soon the photo became the hot topic on Google, well, that was until my friends on Facebook banded together and had Google remove the photo. The Justice Cafe, I THINK NOT, it’s more like the “Unethical Cafe”!
After the States Attorney’s Office who is prosecuting the case was made aware the leaked photo it was immediately removed from the Google internet image search engine. However, as I stated, a number of bloggers grabbed the photo and it spread like Poison Ivy. After attempting to convince each blogger regarding the legal infractions they were committing in posting the court evidence document, and asking them to remove the image on behalf of still grieving families, they insensitively neglected my demands. Again, it is back to the States Attorney’s Office with a complaint and list of sites who are displaying the photo of a semi-nude recently departed loved one over the internet for the entire world and every deviate to gawk over.
Wrong is wrong! What of the dignity for the deceased? Would you want a semi-nude photo of you as a deceased person floating over the internet? I think not! What this world and the internet is coming to is nothing short of frightening. To publically humiliate a battered women who was being oppressed by a man and now is facing oppression by society and the people she was to trust in life, is outright unspeakable and inhumane. Subjecting anyone to internet bullying by bloggers who post such nightmarish filth to attract readers should not be tolerated. Leave the nightmares to Hollywood producers!
I am posting each site I found, and continue to find, in an effort to cease all such molestation of human rights. Perhaps if enough people band together and complain to the site administers or to their neighbors, something will finally be done to protect people’s internet rights. Remember, this could very well happen to you one day, don’t be the one who said, “I should have…,” be the one who says, “I have rights!”
The below links are the sites persecuting my wife and her family with posting semi-nude photos of their deceased loved one, please take a moment to stand up for all American’s rights and let them know you don’t tolerate such crimes against humanity…
