Alright, I apologize to anyone that has emailed me and asked me what the hell is going on. NOTHING is going on, I’m just busier than hell and I think I’ve finally gotten caught up on reports, interviews, and reviewing a shitload of discovery on a multitude of cases, one of which is a fairly fresh murder case.
Let’s see, as far as the murder case is concerned ( I will definitely go into more detail on it when the case is concluded), I’ve been trying to work with the paper pushers over at SSI to try and get some medical records but I feel like I’m running in circles with some of those folks. They try to be helpful but they just end up creating more work for everyone every time they pick-up the phone.
A couple of good friends of mine are attending DITA IV (Defense Investigator’s Training Academy in Lompoc, California) so they have been out of action for the last couple of days. It runs from August 8th to 15th. DITA IV is the final course in a very intensive college level program that trains Defense Investigator’s in all manners related to criminal defense work. It’s pretty amazing stuff. Not a lot of Investigative training is geared towards ONLY investigator's so it's great to have an organization that caters to us!
This year DITA has a Criminalist from the Department of Justice who is setting up mock crime scenes and teaching the students to examine and understand the intricate nature of crime scene investigation…all under the watchful eye of someone with over 18 years experience…it’s really fascinating stuff. He’s supposed to email me some pics which I’ll post when I get them.
The last thing I wanted to add was this…I’ll never understand women and love really sucks sometimes. I reserve the right to reverse my feelings on this but as of this very moment…my heart hurts and there is nothing I can do about it. Vague, I know. When I think I can explain it, I will.
Right now, I'm kicking back, eating sushi, and drinking Diet Pepsi (Yes, I'm a traditionalist), and I've got the television tuned to what could quite possibly be the greatest movie EVER. Red Dawn with Patrick Swayze, Jennifer Grey, Emilio Estevez, and that chick who was the Michael J. Fox's girlfriend in Back to the Future. It's about the Russians and Cubans invading the United States and a group of high school rebels getting together (as insurgents) to fight against the commie invaders. It's really cheesy but reeeaally good. Please, just promise me you will all still respect me in the morning.
Anyway, Like it or not…I’m back from the dead…again.
