The LAW messed up on this one big time. I have followed this case and from what I gathered the man was ambushed in his own home by the police. They used excessive force and basically ruined the family home when trying to get him to surrender. Mr. Crockwell might not have passed the bar but he knows enough about his rights that he wasn’t letting the police illegally entre his home. Like he said, a warrant was not presented to him so he never had to let them in!

This one case has taken up way too much of the Court's time, especially when there is usually a backlog and long waiting times. This situation snowballed from the beginning. Sick of hearing about it by now and seeing him on T.V. He certainly seems to be enjoying all the attention.

Facts of the case are how justice is decided not on your lack of patience on the subject. If the media reports no longer interest you, don't read the article. Read something that does interest you. If nothing else Mr. Crockwell is putting a brand new face to mental illness. His ability to remain calm and defend himself has the judge making positive encourging statments.

The man is a victim of police over reacting. For God's sake realease him and get this farce overwith!

This man is no victim. He is a cunning individual who seems to enjoy making a mockery of the law and the justice system IMHO. He takes no responsiblity for his actions and is the typical, oh poor me. I didn't do what I should have from the beginning, but it's not my fault. It's the big, bad police who caused everything. If he's so upset about his mother's house he should be a man and own up to his part in all of this. He set the ball rolling. He needs to pay for the restoration, not the tax payers, via the police.
