Victims (and their relatives) of the Golden State Killer/East Area Rapist got to face their tormentor today at a victim impact hearing. https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2020-08-18/golden-state-killer-victims-impact-statements-sentencing. The hearing will continue for two more days and sentencing will be on Friday.
There will be no justice in the OCCK case, no knock on the door of aiders and abettors in the OCCK case or on the doors of still living pedophiles who know. Busch and Greene are long dead, and by now you may understand how this case was manipulated so that no one could ever look too closely at this case after November 20, 1978. Just a lame PR and chaos machine meant that even if any questions were asked, answers will always remain elusive.
There will be no victim impact hearing in the OCCK case. How about an investigation into why Chris Busch got a pass? Start with these men (those who are still alive) and get Richard Thompson from the OCP, every still living person who showed up at the Busch “suicide” scene, every FBI agent and OC deputy sheriff who worked on this case, and all still-living involved cops from Birmingham and Berkley, to raise their right hands? I am not convinced they would tell the truth, but you never know when someone in law enforcement will be charmed to obey an oath.
It is no small thing. Not only was justice precluded for Mark, Jill, Kris and Tim, because of the way this was “handled” law enforcement could not pull on any possibly related threads because they couldn’t risk any exposure or opening related cans of worms. It meant they wouldn’t go near Fox Island, child porn rings allegedly operating with knowledge of high ups at GM, and that they let the John Hastings lead die on the vine. It is possible money changed hands. And how about accounting for all the taxpayer money spent in this case to cover up a dirty deal?
