Skip to comments.Father Denied Dying Daughter's Wish (VERY SAD UPDATE FROM O'REILLY FACTOR TONIGHT)
Posted on 03/27/2008 6:14:07 PM PDT by Conservative Vermont Vet
Update: Despite efforts from Fox News to facilitate this dying girl's wish to have her father at her bedise when she passes, the imovable, cold-hearted, beauraucratic, red tape of the Jucidiary, Bureau Of Prisons and U.S. Attorney are intransigent in their unwillingness to bend the "rules" to allow this to happen.
Sadly, somehow I missed it.
After seeing this on O'Reilly, I am compelled to post it again in the hope that something can be done to move these idiots off the dime before this little girl had died
Apparently Fox correspondent (name escapes me as I am so upset and just a little incensed) contacted the Judge and he agreed to order the father released early if US Attorney agreed
Sadly, the POS is hiding under his desk and apparently his mouthpiece, some bimbo, was very abrupt with correspondent when he attempted to contact US Attorney.
Likewise BOP is holding fast to their simplistic "these are the rules and we have to follow them" mantra.
It is not like this man is a danger to society.
His place of incarceration is a camp: No walls, no fence, etc.
Moreover, he is due to be released to a half-way house in a few months anyway.
Don't know what we can do, but I'm going to try and get emails for Judge, US Attorney and Warden as well as BOP and send them a love note.
Anyone who chooses to participate to try to affect outcome will be appreciated by me and I would imagine, the father and family.
PS If anyone beats me to finding info, please post.
My advice: Don’t get sentenced to prison because crap happens when you do...
What makes this a tragedy is that a dying girl couldn’t get her last wish. Ridiculous especially when considers that serial killers and unrepentant murderers get their last wishes met incl. a hearty meal of their choice.
It was Fox’s Gregg Jarrett (an attorney) handling the case. Such a sad story.
The tradegy was caused by the guy committing a prison-worthy crime and not being the father he should have been before and after the daughter was terminal.
I was given a one day furlough from jail to go to my grandmother’s funeral. I just sent a letter the the judge and asked and he granted it.
This is one of the problems that the federalization of crime has caused. The federal sentencing times are several times the magnitude of state sentences and there is absolutely no accountablility for any actions taken by Federal bureaucrats. They are completely immune from public opinion.
Is this a different article than what was posted a few hours ago? I thought they allowed him to visit his daughter?
They already bent the rules for him to visit her three times, I believe.
Sadly, this little girl has no one to blame for this mess but her daddy.
What is he in jail for?
Don't do the crime if you can't do the time.
Yeah, thanks. That's really nice of you.
I'm sure his innocent dying daughter would certainly agree with you /s
Have you ever studied just exactly how lethal Meth is to anyone that tries it? The addiction schedule is staggering. This is no recreational drug. Meth is death.
