These are my own personal opinions, concerns, rants, gripes, moans, etc., that didn't fit the story or article format. Where necessary, I've changed them to articles when the story is more about events.

One of those that gets your blood boiling, your blood pressure and heartbeat up? If you have you know the feeling. I just finished reading through such a book. The name of the book is "Drawn to Injustice", by Timothy Masters with Steve Lehto. It's well worth whatever they charge for it.
Having done my share in removing Judges Blair and Gilmore in 2010, what gets me pissed is that I've personal experience with some of these individuals, and the shell game they play with both justice and truth. How many more perpetrations in Larimer County remain undiscovered? How many more innocents sent from this jurisdiction to DOC on false testimony, malfeasant prosecution, and with the help of the fantasies of statistical phrenologists? Innocents that just didn't have the luck of drawing a Maria Liu… You know, where there is smoke there is fire, and an iceberg only shows 10% of it's volume above the surface.
It irks that as you read, you find out that one of the main individuals who fought TOOTH and NAIL to prevent justice for Tim Masters after Maria Liu became involved was Cliff Riedel, who got 'elected' in our judicial district to District Attorney in 2012. 'Elected' in quotes because he ran unopposed (again unopposed in 2016… What is up with that?). What is wrong with this jurisdiction when many a good lawyer didn't want to have the position? How much money did Mr. Riedel cost the local taxpayer fighting every request that Maria Liu made, to the point where the Larimer County DA's office had to be removed from the case. Interesting that once the question got outside of the control of this jurisdiction, justice was served.
We hope that in the end, justice prevailed for Tim Masters. The money he was awarded may not recover the time lost in prison under a false conviction, but it will help in the future. However, for the People of the State of Colorado, the victim Peggy Hettrick, and her family, there is no justice. In the megalomania chase after Mr. Masters over the years, individuals who's duty it was to effectuate justice wound up perverting that justice, and got away with that perversion. Will the murdered of Peggy Hettrick ever be bought to justice? Probably not, and only the tolling of time will bring final justice to that individual.
The thought comes to mind that maybe there's a lot more swept under the rug in this jurisdiction. Maybe some of the intensity of the fight against Tim Master's release was that there was fear that the rug would eventually be lifted to expose the dirt underneath. We expectantly await the day when the rug gets pulled up so that the vermin and dirt gets cleaned up. Until then, continue to expect the status quo ante…
