    Yes very hard to believe it took this long to get this bogus charge dropped. Since he is gone why would we waste money and time on this?

    Jim was not guilty of this charge anyhow. Look at the evidence.

    Look at some of the So called musicians today. Cursing stripping talking about killing cops etc. etc. Put some of those pieces of garbage on trial..

    When I did construction someone "exposed" themselves to me and a few other guys. It was traumatizing to say the least. Would Charles in Charge pardon him too? I bet he would.

    Jim never died. last seen in Joshua Tree in 2003 . He was 61 . He needed his charges to be dropped so he could make his long awaited visit to his Children and family so missed. Jim's relationship with Freda Melendy was his awakening and as Chalice grew up and money flowed to the Melendys and Farida changed her name back to her Maiden name. The Melendy children were soon taken to England so as too have visits from her real father Jim Morrison and Tony Melendy (world renowned sculpture) much of his work purchased by Ray Manzerak and other investors introduced to Tony, so he would forget about the child that Jim fathered. Chalice never knew the truth until. 2010 when I told her.Jim charished her. Wrote poetry about her and songs. Chalice as far as I know is alive and well somewhere in Los Angeles. She was born here and Graduated from UCLA in creative writing and minored in Film
