The Dotson case does remain open and many loved ones of Betty Dotson are hoping and praying for justice for their beloved mother who was murdered in the same manner as Whitey,brutally stabbed to death!
Dotson has always and still does implicate Dawn as the one who actually stabbed Mrs. Dotson.
Please pray for justice for the Dotson family!!!!!!!
As in my above comments, you also state the obvious. I question how the case is still open though. The only thing served at this point in time is another one of Monroe's miscarriage of justice. Or simply put - Injustice! It all goes back to the corrupt legal system we all must endure. As you stated, many are hoping and praying for justice. I could only wish that were enough. But unless you are personally affected, most people go on with their life and just say, "too bad." The majority do nothing to correct it or even speak up about it. When ones come on MT, as I do, and expose the corruption, injustice and crooked politics, I am attacked anonymously. It makes one wonder if the anonymous attackers are one and the same of the guilty parties being exposed. Or maybe just those that have no conscience, relish in others misery and are disrespectful in their comments. They hang their hats on the fact there was a conviction.
Sure Mr. Dotson was convicted with the testimony of Dawn Duvall. There could just as easily be a conviction of Dawn Duvall with Mr. Dotson's testimony. This only demonstrates, that in a crooked justice system, a conviction means nothing. Unfortunately, it is too late for the convicted who are the real victims. Yes, the majority of the defendants are truly guilty and they usually plead down their case, just like Dawn Duvall did.
But there are others that are innocent that plead down their case to save money, jail time and a chance of a felony. There are others that are truly "Not Guilty." They take their cases to trial because they have morals and principles. They refuse to accept their plea bargains to plead their case down even to a misdemeanor that they did not commit. They have the mistaken view that justice and honesty will prevail if they go to trial. They get a rude awakening in the local insidious trap where the prosecutor awaits to entrap their prey by every despicable means possible. Whether it be grooming witnesses to lie or the prosecutors themselves blatantly and knowingly lying to the jury, the judge and to the defense attorneys. They bring cases without any evidence. But they know they can squeeze these cases in because the corrupt judges, not the honest ones, allow these cases to proceed with no evidence and are pro prosecution at every turn.
The system is corrupt and there and those that know that this injustice system is dishonorable, but not enough to stand up, demand justice and affect a change. Maybe at the polls next time a good house cleaning will take place? But probably not unfortunately.
For the Dotson case, anyone with an ounce of sense realizes that what the wrongly convicted man says, and has said all along, is true about this Duvall woman being the real killer. She stood by when two others were going to go down for her murder. She again stands by and lets Mr. Dotson go down for another of her murders. How many other unsolved stabbing are there?
An honest prosecutor would take the appropriate measures to undo the wrongs they have committed. And we have seen it happen across this great land in other places where they admit they got it wrong and reverse the damage as quickly and as best they can. But not in Monroe.
If this prosecutor's office were not so crooked, they would petition the court to release this innocent man and charge the real killer, Dawn Duvall. But we will never see that, will we? This prosecutor will stand by, just like the real killer, and let this man rot in prison for a crime he did not commit.
And this prosecutor's office will fight to the end, every one of the crooked case that they have amassed to their discredit. They do not want to be discredited so they fight on in the face of honesty. Conviction numbers are more important. They continue to fight on in the appeals process in support of their ill-gotten and phony convictions while the innocent appeal. Those that are brave enough and willing to stand up for justice to expose them are very few.
Hoping and praying this crooked system will do the right thing is not enough.
