    Convicted by a Hair
    June 14, 2018
    Oh my goodness, y'all. Did you see last night's Reasonable Doubt?! How about that amazing detective work by our Chris Anderson? So, what do you think of his new partner Fatima Silva? Awesome, right?

    So to recap, the clients felt their son, KC Gordin, was falsely accused of murdering his girlfriend, Andrea Eilber. Of course, you're probably thinking "they all think their son is innocent". Good thing they called Fatima and Chris for help.

    KC's family and friends all said there was no way he could have done it. They said there was something wrong with his "confession". He wrote that "she commited suicide, and he just moved stuff around so it didn't look like it". The detective said if he wrote something down he could go home. Plus, the key evidence was a **** hair on his sweatpants. His parents said all of the laundry was bunched together in one evidence bag. So the big question, "Was the **** hair already on his pants, or was it cross contamination?"

    Fatima and Chris divided up the investigation. Chris covered the police work and talked to an expert about how the **** hair could have ended up on the sweatpants. The expert poured a little cows blood on the table and ran a human hair through it, then he gently ran the hair across a similar pair of sweatpants. He used a luminol spray on the pants, turned off the light, and turned on a black light. Just that little bit of blood lit up the pants. Hmm, so transference through cross contamination is possible?

    Our new attorney Fatima checked into some legal issues. She spoke to an expert about the so called "confession". They watched a video of the interrogation. KC kept saying he didn't do it. The detective kept saying, "Yes you did". Then the detective said stuff like, "maybe she killed herself, and you just moved stuff around". The expert said it sounded like the detective was practically telling KC what to write. Dude, that made the "confession" totally bogus.

    Chris found out that Andrea's credit card was used just after the murder. Another expert went to the store and measured the door. He and Chris watched the surveillance video at that date and time. A man, at least 6'1 walked in. KC is 5'10.

    I don't know about you guys, but I spend this entire episode on the edge of my seat. It was friggin' awesome. Fatima and Chris went to the parents with their findings. As for the **** hair being the key piece of evidence, they can't prove or disprove it was done by cross contamination (darn). Although, the rest of the evidence was enough to convince Chris and Fatima of reasonable doubt, so they helped the parents get an investigator to reopen the case.

    I bet you're asking, "So? What happened?" Well, you can go to Flint News' website for that answer. They have the update.

    Michelle Dockery: “I’d be thrilled to do another Downton film”




    the actor best known as Downtown Abbey’s heiress-apparent is, finally, once again gainfully employed, filming London-set thriller Anatomy of a Scandal.
    The Netflix drama is adapted from the 2017 bestseller by former political journalist Sarah Vaughan, and is being co-showrun by Big Little Lies series creator David E. Kelley. Rupert Friend plays a married politician accused of raping his aide; Sienna Miller is his faithfully disbelieving wife. Dockery is the ambitious and tough young barrister determined to prove his guilt.

    It is a story with powerful contemporary resonance, of the abuse of patriarchal power and how instances of sexual assault are not believed and/or not pursued.

    Watch it to the very end.




    John McKeown on Todd Robinson’s ‘The Last Full Measure’ (2019)
    “The last full measure of devotion” was how US President Abraham Lincoln described the ultimate sacrifice made by Union soldiers when dedicating the military cemetery at Gettysburg in 1863. Writer-director Todd Robinson’s Vietnam War memory film The Last Full Measure, takes its cue from Lincoln’s paean in a long, slow decanting of the story of one William H. Pitsenbarger, posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honour for saving the lives of scores of soldiers one afternoon in April 1966. As an Air Force Pararescueman, or “PJ”, rather than a soldier, Pitsenbarger’s actions were the more remarkable, since his only remit was to haul the wounded out of a particularly sticky moment during “Operation Abilene,” a significant action in the early part of the war.
