    Oh...well I just wasn't sure that they had actually done it until they said so themselves. Good grief.

    Well done to the two women police officers who got Jaycee Dugard out of the horrible suffering she and her children were forced into by the the Garrido's. These women were wonderful and deserve endless praise for their part in her rescue.

    If the Garridos were sorry IN THE LEAST. they wouldnt be asking for leniency and would be coughing up anything they knew about MICHAELA GARECHT without having to be asked. OR without having to give them a deal.

    This whole story goes to the core of just how broke our justice system really is! Once again the criminal has all the rights and the victim gets victimized over and over again...This poor girl 🙁 Everyone who dropped the ball on this should be fired and reemed in civil court instead of the tax payers.

    Relax folks, this is California. In no time at all they will be parolled after they are rehabilitated. Just a question of who gets out first, them or Chalie Manson.

    It has been proven you cannot "fix" a sick pervert like this slime ball. Our society is too worried about hurting the criminal. Look at how much they concern themselves with the few moments it takes for the lethal injection to work! We need to re do our entire legal system. Our government wants to give bin laden a "fair trial" if he is ever caught! There is something wrong with our system in so many ways. Poor Jaycee. She will never see real justice.
