    Again, Henchy will go under gag order to review the case file for free, offer an outside point of view and perspective.

    Guarantee new evidence or a change in theory will occur!

    Another note for Punky Brewster… apparently APD needs another Chief of Police in order to train officers on how to deal with animal control… a loose pig got murdered because of a deal cut between the police officer and the slaughterhouse owner but the police officers playing dumb now which is why the case went to the district attorney’s office because the chief of police in Arcata had no clue on how to deal with this situation in lieu of the fact that David Josiah Lawson was murdered 2 years ago and the investigation has just been a total shitstain to the eye…

    … it’s getting really old having dumbass motherfukers employed by government…
