  1. Amanda, good point, and I’m just wondering if they may have been denied and are still trying to obtain it. Don’t really have a clue and I don’t know how long the approval normally takes, even with a backlog as Sharon said. I’m also wondering if there is an application in a name or title of which we aren’t aware.

    Noway, exactly! Why wouldn’t he want them to testify if he was inoocent?? That speaks volumes to me. I can understand, only to a point, about him wanting them to have an attorney, but the truth is the truth. If he has nothing to hide, then let them tell it!!

    BTW, yes I’ve seen Sharon and Carol on interviews stating application has been made and they’ve not been assigned tax exempt status yet, so I guess in effect they have stated that.
    ______________________
    But we cannot discount all the information that amandareckonwith had. She gave phone numbers and names of the people she talked with.

    I do wish that someone from FSP would address that (assuming they’ve read it here or someone has sent it along to them).

  3. Noway, I totally agree with what you said about Amanda. I just thought maybe someone would point out to me what Sharon and Carol said. Like I saidthe other night on here……”they” need some emergency PR, or the membership is going to decline, and so are the donations, with the site maybe following. I wish somebody in authority should speak out and defend their position on this.

  4. Oops … something happened with my copy/paste.

    Wanted this too.

    According to the IRS, Sharon and Carol lied.

    I know I am not the only person who called, same results. The IRS says they are not eligible for 501(c)3) and the feds are the ones who regulate it, not the state.

    Now, for the state, I called SAG, went to site. Called SOS, went to site. Same deal. No records of anything regarding the name of Stacy Peterson.

    If an app was made, who’s name was used? It wasn’t our Miss Stacy.

    If they keep the silence, then there it is.

    If they have an explanation, let’s hear it.

    Maybe they are trying to find out what’s going on right now. (I’m not doubting Amanda’s info AT ALL. I just keep hoping there is another explanation.)

  6. Noway, I would sure bet somebody is scrambling to find out something!!! Escpecially if these posts are being read.

  7. I’ve been watching this for awhile and can’t keep quiet anymore. Everyday I see more and more false statements or outright lies.

    Either Amanda is lying or she talked to someone that didn’t know what they heck they were doing.

    We called to double check yesterday after seeing everything posted here by Amanda. The application has in fact been received, along with our money order for the application fee, and is in the expedited line. Apparently something was missing though and they didn’t bother to notify us. So that has been resolved and our application is going forward.

    No we do not have an approval letter in our hand, however we’re told that there is no reason to believe we won’t be approved and are allowed to operate as a non-profit until notified otherwise. We DO have a TIN and that HAS been given to anyone that asked.

    No the IRS or ISP did not shut our site down yesterday. That gave us a great laugh, by the way. Hilarious! It was a problem with the server. Some wild imaginations you guys have here.

    JIC’s travel expenses were not paid for by FSP. SOMEONE made this same claim at the last fundraiser, which is exactly why she kept it quiet that she was even coming in for this one. She is not our spokesperson. She is just a forum member that has been very supportive of the family. Why do you have a problem with that?

    Searches ARE still going on. Multiple days per week. They just aren’t made public. They are being done by professionals right now. Not every area that needs to be searched can be done by your average everyday volunteer searcher. Why do you have a problem with that?

    Hey sami, wordpress isn’t giving up your IP. Nor anyone else’s IPs. It’s not that difficult to figure out who you are over there. Or which “guest” you are. You’re not very smart about it. You guys make it so obvious.

    You all need to get lives. Why do you feel the need to spend so much time badmouthing a group trying to find a missing woman? Why do you get so pissy when others bad mouth the person that made her go missing? Who’s side are you on anyway?

  8. Does anyone know what happened to all the cats in Coffee Talk? Were they just turned loose to fend for themselfs? Were they put down? Is PETA aware of this?

    When you click the Paypal button for the SP fund, your money goes to Friends of Stacy Peterson.

    Therefore, I would conclude the applications are in that name.

    Again, I do not know if anything is illegal.

    But I’d call it deception.

    And I really hope there is a valid explanation, not just more piss on my leg.

  11. settingitstraight, thank you. But how do we know you are an official source?

    Could you provide the names of the people and organization you talked with? I ask because Amanda provided that to give credence to what she was told.

    It does seem like you are talking to two different organizations. And it was pointed out that when you call the IRS 5 times, you might get 5 different answers to your questions.

    The “get a life” phrase is getting old, as is “whose side are you on?”

    I guess I would have to say that I am on the side of justice. IMO Drew is guilty and that would mean I was on Stacy’s side.

  12. settingitstraight

    we were under the impression per Admins directive that noone from FSP committee or board goes on any other board representing them. has that changed? ill be happy to take ur word on it if u r indeed a committee member. a little confusing since Admin specifically stated that no member there can or will represent them on other boards.

    as far as u “calling me out” i think u need to check ur guest list again. i am not on it, havent been for awhile. i also wasnt the only one asking about ip’s.

    who’s side are we on? we’re on the side of the entire truth. why r we not allowed to ask questions about behaviors of both sides? nothing wrong with that.

  13. Admin was directing that at the people posting elsewhere CLAIMING to be someone from the committee. And I’m not here claiming to represent anyone. Just setting the record straight.

  14. If you don’t want to provide that information here, perhaps you could call Laura (sorry don’t remember anything other than her name) and tell her who she SHOULD be having people contact if they have questions about the tax status.

  15. settingitstraight

    Why don’t you tell us who you are or are you afraid to stand behind your words?

    settingitstraight,

    Why don’t you update the amount of the reward on FSP? in the Facts section where you say it is 25,000?

    settingitstraight,

    How is JIC very supportive of the family when in pms and bashing she has run off more members then anyone else. Do you know she sends out PMs telling people who they can talk to and who they can’t? If they admit they are friends with someone she will get them banned.

    settingitstraight,

    How hard would it be just to post the total of the money you have taken in on paypal?? Why are you hiding it. You can go in and look at the total on the history of paypal and copy and paste it very easy, takes about 30 seconds. Why don’t you do that?

  16. Settingitstraight, I for one appreciate your letting everyone know what is going on about the tax exempt status, and it’s actually a relief to know it’s being finalized. As for all of us, we don’t all agree on lots of things about this case, but are free to express our disagreements here in a reasonable fashion without fear of being banned, as many of these posters have been. Bad mouthing Drew is just part of this whole scenario if you happen to believe he’s responsible for what happened to these two women, and most of the people here seem to believe that. I understand you’re feeling like you have the right to come on here and tell us:

    You all need to get lives. Why do you feel the need to spend so much time badmouthing a group trying to find a missing woman? Why do you get so pissy when others bad mouth the person that made her go missing? Who’s side are you on anyway?
    However, I doubt that anyone on here could come to FSP and post the same thing that you just wrote on this site without being banned. That’s the great thing about being on here and is exactly why I didn’t join FSP, even though I think it has a lot of good information.

    Thanks again for you post. I really do appreciate your taking the time to inform this site of the things you addressed.

    This makes it sound like you are part of “We” and that “We” is the board or board members or Sharon or Cass of FSP.

    If you want to put all the speculation to rest, provide the name/organization of the person who should be contacted.

    Otherwise, you’ve just added fuel to the fire for some.

  18. It seems to me that none of you want FSP’s name cleared. You WANT FSP to be the bad guy. And no matter the outcome or answers you won’t be happy unless you can turn it around to make FSP look bad. It’s obvious that it’s pointless to try to defend FSP to people that don’t want it defended. So I’m done here.

  19. settingitstraight, u did say “our” money order. that could make anyone believe u represent fsp.

  20. Settingitstraight, does FSP’s name need to be cleared?

    All you need to do to satisfy the people with questions about the tax status is to provide the name of the organization or agency you are dealing with.

    If you won’t do that, I do have to question your motive for posting here.

    You are not “setting it straight” at all.

    We did not accept Amanda’s information just because she said she had talked with those offices. She provided names and phone numbers.

    If she is being given incorrect information, then I imagine other people are too.

    Hit and run baby, hit and run! Credibility…gone.

    I have NEVER said I want to burn FSP, but I found it very ODD and downright disgusting that the site would ban people for asking LEGITIMATE questions.

  22. amandar gave us more info than anyone so far. depts, names & #’s. if someone gave her the wrong info out of all those places she seems the type that would admit it. if you’d give names & #’s to check that would carry some weight here im sure.

  23. I made the calls, I took names. I posted numbers and names.

    Call them and ask for yourself.

    Better yet, if you feel I am a liar, please conduct your own internet search and call the numbers provided for the agencies that would or could possibly be in charge of this.

    I did that.

    As I did, I was seriously hoping I could come back here and to kimmers forum and say “here is the correct info”.

    Believe me. There is NO WAY I wanted this to be this way.

    BUT—- WHAT I WANT IS THE TRUTH.

  24. Why not just tell the truth and garner more support for this missing woman? More people have been driven away by the implication of impropriety than anything. Why do you want to drive people away from finding this woman by not being honest?

  25. I don’t think that person had anything to do with FSP. At least not in an official capacity.

    I think that poster was meant to add fuel to the fire and keep us talking about the tax status.

    Could we move onto something else until we get names of person and organization that provided settingitstraight with the information she has?

  26. Adding here, if I am incorrect and you can send me the proof, I will be happy to publicly state an apology.

    My info came directly from the agencies IL SAG, IL SOS, IRS Dept for Tax-Exempt Business. Call and ask. I did not pull it out of thin air.

  27. Those poor, poor catz.

    I bet they are all wandering, soaking wet and so skeered.

    Go fetch em up 3turds.

  28. i cant speak for anyone else but i wouldnt ask one more question on the funds if they would just provide the info. i think we would all love to see that its on the up & up but instead of truelly setting the record straight it just ends up as more “whos side are u on” & so on.

    settherecordstraight, we’d all love to see they’re legit but no proof as yet.

  29. Awww noway, I bet you guys are right.
    settingitstraight isn’t any part of FoSP committee or board.

    Those people are the holders of the secrets.

  30. setitstraight please do just that

    1. put the tax id# on the website next to the donate button
    2. release the financials of all moneys collected and where it has been spent
    3. send each person that has donated a letter stating their donation amount and informing them if it is tax deductable or not

    all LEGIT non profit organizations have no problems putting this information on their website next to the donate button and all LEGIT non profit orgs don’t get all pissy about anyone questioning anything about their non-profit status.
    Hint the key word is LEGIT. Only orgs that have something to hide act as FSP has acted over their non profit status.

    so the ball is in your court, I like Amanda have called the IRS concerning FSP and their non profit status many times over the last several months. Everytime I get the same answer as Amanda has and that is NO record of any non profit status or even application letter being issued for FSP.
    you can’t fool some but not all with your bs now put up or shut up.

  31. My question is: WHO would want the focus to be off Stacy and on something like the tax status of the FSP?

    J O E L B R O D S K Y

    D R E W P E T E R S O N

    Until ‘settingitstraight’ returns with the name/phone of the organization or agency they are dealing with, I cannot believe she is someone who knows.

    And I don’t know she is a “she” … I just get tired of the he/she business.

  32. JIC’s travel expenses were not paid for by FSP. SOMEONE made this same claim at the last fundraiser, which is exactly why she kept it quiet that she was even coming in for this one. She is not our spokesperson. She is just a forum member that has been very supportive of the family. Why do you have a problem with that?
    _____________________________

    I have a problem because she couldn’t possibly be supportive of the family when she has run amuck and dived into the personal lives of nearly every single high poster. From obtaining their home phone numbers, to phoning them and telling them she has personal contacts w reporters that she wants them to talk with. I know. She phoned me at my home with that exact purpose. She meddles in places she has no business and is certainly NOT an asset to the efforts of the good people at FSP. I have the posts still in record of her admitting that she had access in reading a private PM that was between myself and a moderator at FSP. IT was the same night that the Mod and I both left the forum on our own free will.

    When I sent mulitple emails to the gmail account asking why, one month later, I was banned, I got no response. Silence. When I sent a message to the moderators through their myspace. Silence. It wasn’t until other forum members sent me anonymous emails of what JIC stated about me that I learned the truth. She blatantly lied. SO how is that supportive to the family? She blew off a very good supporter from your site. Me. Sorry, but I never said an ill word about anyone in any posts.

    She has continued her ruckus and finagaling even to this day. I’m about tired of the emails of members of “your” forum that email me upset over things that I “said” or didn’t say when I have not posted in well over a month now. Hence, 3 posts on one day in two months and this childish immature drama continues. Whether she’s been banned, or suspended is of no concern to me. However, you better look long and hard at ALL the good people who were contributing and the previous efforts of bonding and charisma that everyone maintained at “your” site….prior to the ego-inflation of JIC deciding to want to be the queen of the ball….even as much as to distract others from the good they were doing for Stacy. And you call that Supportive to the family?

    Unless your JIC herself, you had better take a look and have some real conversations with those who have the knowledge and the proof of the PM’s she has sent, the private emails and the overblown accusations she has made…such as the email she sent to me stating that I said “she assaulted me”. That is FAR BEYOND what was stated. I said she “bopped me in the head” 3 times. And if you are from the FSP site. I have a photo taken at the FSP Fundraiser and you can clearly see her leaning over the bat at my head. Email me. You know where to find me. I don’t hide behind false names.

    This is my last post on this. I’m just tired of all the bickerings back and forth…but moreso…I’m tired of the blatant lack of respect that has been placed on lots of good people…including very good people that I personally know and love who do post today at FSP.

    Folks need to grow up. FSP Website needs to be managed by professionals. The forum needs to be outside of the website that upholds the honor of Stacy…because some of the going on’s of late is NOT doing Stacy justice and it is coming from the reflection of what the site is allowing and enabling.

    As for who paid JICS way. Doesn’t matter. I’ve had three different emails telling me they have proof that the FSP paid, one that said her friend paid and can provide the credit card receipt , and another that said she in fact paid for herself and she in fact is willing to show her credit card receipt. Far as I’m concerned. I don’t care anymore who paid and/or what she does. I already know what she has done. That’s enough for me to leave a sour taste in my mouth.

    For God’s sakes. THIS IS ABOUT STACY and KATHLEEN.

  33. Either Amanda is lying or she talked to someone that didn’t know what they heck they were doing.

    We called to double check yesterday after seeing everything posted here by Amanda. The application has in fact been received, along with our money order for the application fee, and is in the expedited line. Apparently something was missing though and they didn’t bother to notify us. So that has been resolved and our application is going forward.
    _____________________________

    Why would you FIRST accuse Amanda of lying? IF you were a professional person you would have said that Amanda may have been mislead. Why the term “LYING” ? Very unprofessional. At the same time in the next breath you proceed to explain just WHY Amanda got the info she received….because something was wrong with the application and now that it is fixed…it is moving forward. I don’t get this? WHY would you bad-mouth her for questioning what obviously was factual to her as of yesterday? You yourself more or less admitted that by stating that nothing was processed due to something amiss?
    I find it hard to believe this is a professional organization when your post comes across as this. Again…more indications to me that FSP is being run and managed by people who do not have the talent to speak publicly on behalf and represent the FSP board. To laugh at “the IRS shut down the website” is further mocking of somebody elses silly posts and thoughts. IF you were managing a professional organization and expect people to believe that you are in fact a professional….you need to become professional and learn to reply in a professional manner. Without all your snickering and stabbing comments of “you all need to get lives”. Obviously nobody told us to get lives when we were hitting the donate button. We were fine people then. Eh?

  34. also when sharon claimed the IRS was backlogged and that their site even mentioned it. I had just happened to call that day and guess what no backlog and also no mention of backlog on their website.
    just more lies and why?
    IMO it gives more fuel to the theory that Stacy is not missing.
    add it all up IRS lies, searching LIES, Cass stories not credibitable when you pick them apart. the need to force to public to only think drew is guilty.

    and daddy cales got him a new boat!!

    sound familiar???

  35. Again, I do not think this person had anything to do with FSP.

    I think “she” was designed to do one thing: Focus the talk here on something other than Finding Stacy Peterson.

  36. This is just a warm-up for kicking up UR heels in the intricate footwork of the famous dance of Krumping
    (also clown dancing or clowning).

    Good Bye

  37. Freedom, why do you post things like “and daddy cales got him a new boat!!” and then “apparently fsp bought a boat from CA is the rumor I heard”?

    As far as the “antics” at FSP . . . it took me a long time to see how distracting that stuff was (I really am a Bear of Very Little Brain).

    I can only the rest of them see it soon.

  38. I also went to the Illinois database to check for any record of a “corporation” filed under that name, and it doesnt have any.
    I do not know how their website works regarding “electronic filing”, but in Florida…

    the first step to filing as a non-profit is to go to
    the States buisness site…fill in the Articles of Incorporation for Non-Profit…give them the filing fee and you should be showing on the website within 48 hours as a non-profit entity. It becomes public record.
    To be registered to “solicit” donations, there is another form to fill out from our Dept of Agriculture, which is $10.
    NOW…
    To be legally allowed to give a “tax deductible” receipt for any donation, you must however have your 501 (c)(3) status which goes thru the IRS not the state government where your filed the corporation paperwork. The application is HUGE, the fees begin at $350 depending on which “boxes” are checked on the application. It can take several months to be approved for this status, however in the case of FoSP, they have not according to the State of Illinois even taken the first step of filing for incorporation as a non-profit organization. They must do that before they would be qualified for 501(c)(3) status from the IRS.

    I have a horse rescue in Florida so I can attest to all this “stuff” you gotta go thru. UGH!!!
    Swampy

  39. why do I post that because it’s part of the ongoing saga of fsp and I did put it was rumor which means that someone will verify it or not. I’m betting it’s true!

    no they won’t see what a distraction fsp is they don’t seem to care this is how many months the circus has been running and there are no plans to stop the circus.

    lol I don’t think you are a bear of very little brain, I think that some folks are niave and only want to believe the best concerning anyone’s who’s loved one is missing.
    but reality has shown me different and when something stinks normally there is something causing the stink. throwing emotions and guilty at those smelling the stink can’t hide the truth for too long it will come out. and in this case I don’t think it’s going to be pretty and many will seek medication to numb out the pain.

  40. I can see putting on our grass skirt & doing the hula with the best of them!

  41. Freedom, I think they are moving in the right direction.

    If they stop to think that every post reflects on Stacy Peterson, that might help. As I said, it took me a long time (before I thought they were harmless and ignored most of them, got caught up in others).

    This is serious business. We are talking about life and death. Or, to go with the facts, a woman that nobody that we know of has heard from in 6 months.

    Maybe I should say that in some respects, I am a Bear of Very Little Brain. 😉

    If “she” wanted to “set it straight” then she would, if only to post the name of the agency they are dealing with.

    Swampy seems to know how it all works, and I don’t know that it would be too different from state to state since donations to a nonprofit would (in theory) come from all over the U.S./country.

  44. oh i think the only ppl lieing here FSP. i believe amanda, kimmer & swampy. maybe if we post some really off the wall stuff settingitstraight will come back

    IMO, settingitstraight was not from FSP.

    There is no way you’d come here claiming to want to “set it straight” and then just add more drama by leaving in a huff. She just added fuel to the fire of “FSP is lying” … and who would want us to believe that? IMO, that would be DP … and JB.

  46. noway I respectfully disagree. What setitstraight did has been standard operating procedure anytime questions arrise concerning FSP.
    Same dance as when asked about searching or why professionals offering FREE services are turned away.
    Or why Stacy is not listed in the national missing persons database. or why anything and everything about FSP is soo out of touch with other missing person sites/orgs looking for a loved one.
    Swampy kudos to you for your horse rescue!!

    noway I respectfully disagree. What setitstraight did has been standard operating procedure anytime questions arrise concerning FSP.
    Same dance as when asked about searching or why professionals offering FREE services are turned away.
    Or why Stacy is not listed in the national missing persons database. or why anything and everything about FSP is soo out of touch with other missing person sites/orgs looking for a loved one. . . .

    Can you know for sure this person represented FSP?

    No.

  50. Seems like Danya could confirm it… after all, she confirmed it when the pastor posted here a week ago.

    btw, that was the last of him. Wonder what happened there. Decided to take the advice to keep it off the net after he let out that he didn’t go to cops when she told him DP killed KS?

  51. true I can’t know for sure in this instance but in other instances I can say yes.
    as you see sharon tells the media these same lies. we filed and have approval letter.
    but when I called the IRS right after she made that statement opps the IRS says that no approval letter has been issued.

    And that’s why I wanted to know the agency (IRS or whoever) settingitstraight is in contact with.

    Amanda backed up her comments with names and phone numbers.

    For settingitstraight to make those comments and accusations and not back them up does not make her believable. IMO

  53. The problem is that nobody who is “official” from FSP can post here and announce that they are so and so from FSP (according to how I interpret the post from Admin).

    That is why if that person were officially from FSP, it would make more sense for them to have posted it there first.

    And that’s why I don’t think that person was for real.

  54. noway4 good point. why post here instead of making it official on their forum? makes no sense.

    abclocal.go.com VIDEO: “Stacy’s Family mets with Investigators”
    http://abclocal.go.com/wl…news/local&id…

    Stacey Baca (abclocal.go.com) reporting: “Peterson also wants his guns returned. Earlier today reporters ask if the guns could present a danger to the police if they came back to arrest him one day. Drew Peterson’s voice: “It’s a possibility, sure.”

  56. The above post about the guns and DP’s comments was found on Topix. Not sure who posted it, but it was forwarded to me.

  57. Thank you t.o.sami! I’ve been looking and searched for “kimmer” and “gun” but had no idea what kimmer meant!

  58. Hello everyone,
    In a couple of minutes you’ll see a new design we’re trying out for the blog. We’d love to hear your feedback on it. Keep in mind that if we keep the new design we will continue to make improvements to it over the next few days, including adding more color and changing the two headers so they don’t repeat each other.
    Let us know what you think and if you all decide that you really prefer the current design, we will keep it.
    To give us your vote, either add a comment here or send an e-mail to Danya at dhooker@mysuburbanlife.com

  59. Very schnazzy! I just came back to the computer, and I thought somehow my text size got changed. I can get used to it just fine. I like it.

  60. We’re going to work on a collage of images that will replace the random photo up right now. But hopefully, this new design will allow us to include more photos with posts. The old one just made them look out of place…we’ll see.

    And there are still usability kinks that we’re noticing so if you find something isn’t working right or isn’t showing up that used to, let us know.

  61. “It will be Saturday and Sunday every week until we find her,” said volunteer search coordinator Roy Taylor, who is the son of Stacy’s best friend, Sharon Bychowski.

  62. Thanks to everyone who emailed me today with your ideas for the perp walk for Drew Peterson. I am confident that we have the most important news media contacts identified. Currently, we have 48 contacts for all national and international media outlets.

    Thanks again for your help. We are on call 24/7 and you can be assured that he will be on camera when he is arrested.

    Thanks everyone!

  63. Aw, it was just my sensitivity coming through. Sami made a remark I didn’t care for that had to do with this video, that’s all.

    One of those “hit and run” kind of things, amanda.

  64. Resueapet, sensitivity can be a great thing when making important decisions.

    For instance, I highly admire anyone who would ‘rescue’ a pet, in order for that animal to have a significantly better existence, surrounded by those who love them.

  65. amandar this is what wewillfindstacy posted:

    wewillfindstacy // May 13, 2008 at 9:15 pm

    And how are you paying their salaries, kimmer, when you don’t live in Bolingbrook? You’re full of it. It had nothing to do with tax money and everything to do with trying to cause trouble for anyone and everyone connected to FSP. Why don’t you try telling the truth for once? All I’ve ever seen you post here is lies.

    And coffee talk is gone. So all of the posts in it are gone. That would probably drop the post count of quite a few members drastically.

  66. and this is how i responded which apparently upset rescueapet:

    theoriginalsami // May 13, 2008 at 9:22 pm

    wewillfindstacy, i dont believe that kimmer is lying. as for the monies, amandar showed absolute proof of the lies but still it’s debated. when someone stated drew threatened police on video, no proof yet we’re suppose to accept that as fact.

  67. Can I just ask your opinion on something? After reading that remark, would you want to be one of the people, or someone you know and/or love, to be the ones, to knock on his door that fateful day he may be charged?

    Please note: I said MAY be charged, not absolutely, positively, he will be charged, only MAY be charged. Just so we’re clear.

    I’m ust asking if you would think it may be a “danger, if it’s a possibility?”

    What other way would you interpret it, by the way?

  68. rescueapet // May 14, 2008 at 3:49 pm

    Here is the link to the abc video I alluded to seeing when another blogger first mentioned it.

    “Peterson also wants his guns returned. Earlier today reporters ask if the guns could present a danger to the police if they came back to arrest him one day. Drew Peterson’s voice on the video: “It’s a possibility, sure.”

    http://abclocal.go.com/wls/story?section=news/local&id=5829491

    Rescue, as a person recently retired from law enforcement, I can tell you we are ALWAYS alert AND prepared for a subject to have WEAPONS …. knives, firearms, etc. Therefore, every time le makes a “stop,” serves a warrant, or goes into a residence “on a call,” they most assuredly are prepared and have a mindset of being confronted “with the worst case scenerio.”
    Not taking up for DP at all …….. however, his reply (not necessarily a smart one, considering the position he is in), I think, was a reflection of his many years as le ……………. just saying, I personally, didn’t take it as a threat.

  69. Love the look. I thought I was in the wrong place!

    And as far as the video, yes, I think Drew was being sarcastic BUT I also think he meant every word.

    What police officer would JOKE about the guns presenting a problem to officers who came to arrest him?

    If his words were brought up, he would claim that he was being sarcastic and this was more of his jokester way of dealing with stress.

    IMO

  70. That’s good mz, because, with all the pressure he is under, all of the stress, I am not so sure he’d be one I’d want to confront. My husband is retired recently from LE, so I look at matters such as this very carefully.

    Never would expect a domestic violence call to turn into a shooting/danger, either, but it happens more than some know.

    You just never know…………..

  71. what bothered me about the video was that i didnt hear the reporter ask him, only that “when asked” and then he states that. could it have been edited? the reason i ask is otherwise i would think the cops & other medias would have been all over that, even if he was sarcastic.

    would have liked to see the question and answer from beginning to end.

  72. FYI, JIC’s account at FSP now shows 0 posts. Everything has been deleted.

    The missing Coffee Talk, the kitties on the loose, and now this?

    What next?

  73. Well, then, as long as we’re all clear here.

    Wouldn’t want my LE family member to be the first one to knock on the door.

    You – if you can rest assured DP will be there to welcome them with open arms, who am I to say.

    Video or no video, kidding or not. Not my problem.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I understand exactly what you are saying & where you are coming from …………

    Again, I reiterate, ALL le officers go into EVERY situation with a mindset that guns ( and other dangerous weapons) WILL present a problem. We have to …….. it’s our lives.

    He may well have been joking, he may have meant it as a threat, I don’t know …….. it’s immaterial (I just gave my opinion). For if/when le has to “hook him up,” I assure you, they WILL be prepared, and again, operate under the assumption he is “armed & dangerous.” It will be a small army – A SWAT Team – they will NOT leave anything to chance!

  75. Off topic … but can anyone tell me how I can get a separate page to open when I click on a link (for example the video posted above)?

    It opens in this window, replacing the wordpress page, and I have to go Back to get here again.

    TIA

  76. How many times are people going to post that JIC has 0 posts? First you complain about how many she has, now it’s all about the zero.

  77. Oh, rescue ……. if your husband is retired le, ask him IF he ever let his guard down ………. if he ever assumed “a call” was routine? We ALWAYS assume someone on the other side of that door is armed and is after US. At least that is the way I’ve been trained. And no, no one wants to think of their loved one “to be the first one to knock on that door,” however, that’s our JOB and SOMEONE has to be the “point man.”

  78. noway – copy the link as you would normally copy something, open a new page in your browser, and paste the link in the address bar. Once you’re done, you can close that page, but your original wordpress) page will still be available.

  79. noway, I have Firefox, I just right click on link, select – open in new tab – and there it is. Don’t know ’bout IE, don’t use it, sorry.

  80. mz – I just posted a video someone referred to earlier yesterday, after which the Judge had deferred on giving back DP’s guns. truthisthere mentioned a news video where DP said what has now been posted.

    I said I saw it too, and now it’s just turned into another – but you said, no it doesn’t, it says something else, but it’s not what I heard, I have a problem with it………

    Whatever.

    _____________-
    Thanks … I’m guessing by “page” you mean “tab” … at least that is what my browser is calling it!

  82. yes. I use Firefox, but in Explorer, I believe it is tab. So, you would Ctrl N to get a new window, then paste your link address in the bar. Okay?

  83. rescue, no harm, this is a msg board – we are all here to state our opinion ……..and that’s what i did, didn’t think i was being rude or defensive – just stating an opinion …. along w/ some le facts. have a good one!

  84. My desktop does this automatically (open anything I click on in another window or tab or page). Can’t figure out why laptop won’t. Settings are now the same … ah well, thanks for your help.

  85. WOW, thanks for the snazzy new website frou frou, Gatehouse!!!

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!

    MUCH easier on my ol’ eyes!!!

  86. basherette – I got this:

    Sorry for the inconvenience. Attempting to upgrade the forum software again.

  87. sorry, noway. I thought I had read all the posts and never saw one like mine. I remember reading that she had been banned but hadn’t read that her posts had all been deleted.

    Didn’t mean to bore you.

  88. noway406 // May 14, 2008 at 6:06 pm

    Off topic … but can anyone tell me how I can get a separate page to open when I click on a link (for example the video posted above)?
    ****
    In IE7 (or Firefox) if you RIGHT click on the link, you’ll get a menu of options, one of which is “open in new tab” as well as “open in new window”. Either should work.

  89. morecurious // May 14, 2008 at 7:00 pm

    ________________
    No problem. I am easily bored. 😀

    And thanks all who provided ideas on how to open link in separate window. The right-click and “open in new window” works. Just wish it would do that when I left-click like my desktop does.

  90. Morecurious, the posts re JIC and her zero posts must have been on the link for yesterday which we were still using today. Sorry, my bad.

    😀 (But one per day is enough. Per gatehouse rules: Keep discussion of other blogs/forums to a minimum. Bring them up only when they pertain to case discussion and please refrain from discussing personal information about posters here or on other forums. )

  91. I think the deletion of posts from a prominant poster on a missing person’s site is something that speaks volumes!

  92. Especially after the accusations of impropriety towards her. I think it’s something that needs to be discussed. It may very well be relavant to this case.

  93. I can’t think of anything less important, especially as the person being spoken about is not a family member, doesn’t live within 2000 of Bolingbrook and has no connection to the case, whatsoever.

  94. i dont know, someone that was a prominent fixture & a huge reason for people being banned is room for a discussion especially if it means that someone there has decided to make it more respectable there.

  95. Yes, I can see where if there were improprieties with the funds and they involved that member, it would be relevant to the case.

    But the kitty comments (e.g., the kitties on the loose) are not.

    I think FSP is taking a step in the right direction with eliminating the “off topic” areas. There is more they can do (IMO) to improve the site, but nobody has asked me. 😉

  96. I am an FSP member, and I hate cats. (Sounds like I am in need of a 12-step program.)

    Some of the pictures were cute, but I’m really just not a cat person. And I can’t bandy about “I love you” and mean it. I can add an ILY2 to be sarcastic. Personality flaw or unresolved childhood issue? Who can say for sure?

  97. Facs – I think there is TONS more going on with this CA member than any of us knows. Especially if there are issues with money.

    Honestly, even if they provided an accounting, I don’t know that I would believe it. There’s been too much time to cover things up, if necessary.

  98. I just don’t believe that Cass would allow the investigation into Stacy’s disappearance to be jeopardized by shoddy or illegal bookkeeping, especially given her father’s past (and I have no way of knowing whether what was said was true, nor do I think it has bearing on this case).

    Drew and Joel would be on that in a second if there was even the hint that something illegal was going on.

  99. Nobody who claimed to have proof that JinCA’s airfare was paid provided that proof anywhere …

    And there are forums that would have accepted it without banning that person for posting it. Seriously, if someone had proof, wouldn’t they take it to Joel Brodsky?

  100. Would someone please elaborate how JinCA is going to help Brodsky by taking “proof” to him that she was part of a money scam from a forum website? He was suspended by the ARDC for signing a dead person’s name to a check. He’s not the moral authority. Putting that aside, does he tell the jury – ladies and gentlemen, you should find DP not guilty of murder because JinCA flew to Chicago on donated money?

    I can’t believe what I’m reading. LE sends divers into a frigid canal looking for evidence, when it’s been right in front of their noses all along. Gawlee. What’ya know.

  101. I’ve got a good idea. Why don’t you switch money scamming website schemes for a while, and ask Brodsky to publish an accounting of Drew’s haul. Ask for proof that he reported his windfall to the IRS. Now, that’s a scam.

  102. and one more thing. Will someone tell me why no one is half as concerned about that money scheme Brodsky dreamt up for Drew, to make sure he’d have defense money fees bulging in his pocket, under all of your noses, and you don’t care? Yeah, take all your proof to the biggest crooks of all.

  103. Everything I start to post violates about 5 of the 7 gatehouse rules … so I think I’d better just say goodnight.
    😉

  104. LOL Resue, that was hilarious! I’m sure Noway didn’t mean for anyone to take it that way though. She seems so sweet and always very thoughtful in her posts, and I bet your reply will surprise her. Noway, sorry if I am speaking out of turn on your behalf. No offense at all intended, but Rscue was funny. Needed a chuckle before bed.

  105. noway by no means meant anything. I understand that. She’s trying, like I am, to make sense out of a senseless thing. I am amazed at how much talk and time has been spent on it, when, in all reality, DP and JB are the biggest crooks of all. Someone tell me how he can put up a website and hawk donations, take the money, and walk away quietly from any suspicion? Argh. Why not call the IRS about that dork and ask them where his money went, and if they taxed it????????

  106. Agreed, Rescue. I took a day away from this place to get some perspective and if you read these threads with fresh eyes, the obsession with FSP and attempts to attach importance to what transpires seem completely irrelevant.

    Mismanagement of donation funds and poor web site management have nothing to do with the cases of Drew Peterson and his wives.

    If this ever goes to trial the testimony presented in that courtroom is going to be about Drew Peterson and his relationship with his wives and none of it will be related to anything that occured past the Fall of 2007. At that time there was no FSP, no JICA, no cats, no funds or fundraisers.

    The only acception I’ll make to that is if they actually find some remains (because they’ll get statements from forensics people), but I kind of doubt that at this point.

    I simply can’t imagine a scenario in which the admin of a web site is going to be put on the stand and asked to testify about going to raves, LOLcats, or a blonde who accumulated a total of 58 days posting ILYs on a message board.

  107. And to be honest, no one cares if you were banned or not or the reason why. It’s a big Internet and if you can’t have your say on a particular board there’s always some place that will have you.

    Like here! 🙂

  108. My God, I’ve lost an hour! I’m going to find out who’s responsible and make a stink in the press! Wait ’til the media here’s about what this blog did to me!!!!

    Heh. I keed.

  109. well, it seems outrageous to me that DP and JB can collect money with a website, asking for $5 to $250 a crack, take the money, walk away, and manage to keep their big yaps shut about it. What happens. They let others do the ranting and raving, while they quietly go about their business, DP meets up with 22 year olds at 2:30am, has travelled, from what I’ve heard, to Disneyworld and the Dells, and hired a PR agent to make him look warm and fuzzy. All of this, while people are making calls to every single agency in the State to nail a group trying to find a missing mother of four. I’ll just never understand this. Never, ever.

    Where will DP go on his next trip? Or don’t you give a rat’s butt?

  110. Rescue, I have brought up the same argument before on this same board, and was met with replies that no one would be stupid enough to donate to Drew Defense Fund. However, Brodsky did say they met their short term goal, so what is supposed to mean other than they got some money?? And you’re right, it should be taxable. I made that point as well weeks ago, but another poster has a field day with it, so I dropped it.

  111. Facs, you’re also right about nobody really caring about anyone getting banned, but I’m sure the ones that have been look at this board as a place to vent, and say things they weren’t allowed to say other place. It may be good in a way that people have vented and complained so much about FSP much to everyone else’s chagrin on here, but at least FSP is watching, and apparently making some much needed changes over there.

  112. JinCA makes a trip from CA to IL and this place goes berserk and starts two days of calling, and finger pointing, and ridiculing people with “cats” (which I have no clue what that’s about). The prince of darkness goes to Disneyworld, the Dells, hangs out in bars as often as he can, and he gets a free ride.

    Go figure.

  113. Rescue, yesterday I had a moment of clarity.
    It came about after the discussion of the video on this board and the way it went down.

    This is what I realized.

    That it truly doesn’t matter if people are hired by Brodsky, paid by Selig, friends of Drew…or not.

    If you decide that you want to put your energies into digging up dirt or otherwise slandering and discrediting the families, friends and supporters of a victim, while there is a pending charge and trial, then you are by your actions, aiding the defense of the supsect and I will consider you an ally of the suspect.

    There’s no other way I can look at it. When I see Brodsky start using the words and echoing the accusations that I’ve seen posted, when someone gets a potential witness to make a statement to them and then tries to take it to the press (essentially interfering with an investigation and potentially obstructing justice), I don’t care what your motives are. You are working for the defense whether you realize it or not. If it has been pointed out to you, and you refuse to see it then I will hold you partially responsible if charges ever come and there is an acquittal.

    I’ll continue to be civil, but I’m no longer going to assume that the people I am debating are merely interested in the case, the idea of ‘innocent until proven guilty in a court of law’, or in justice for all. Their motives don’t factor into it. The results of their actions are what speaks.

  114. Okay. My take on the SP supporters. Tone down your board. Take the long-winded novel writers out of there, and tell them to quit calling Judge’s in this case “nut jobs.” Have a spokesperson ask for a press interview and point out steps your taking to clarify some money/donation issues that have been brought out in the public. Make your forum look dignified and on the up-and-up, because not only do you have to fight off Peterson and Brodsky, but even people that want to see justice done in a respectable manner. They’re killing you here, fsp. Do something about it. Or, you’ll get dragged down in the mud right along with everybody else Peterson and Brodsky torture. Be forthright, correct your mistakes, and act openly.

    And that is just my humble opinion.

  115. yeah, facsmiley, it is hard to see Brodsky mimick what he reads here. Come on. Why do you think he’s been so quiet about this in the public? He pulled a fast one himseslf and got caught, enough to get his license suspended. He “convinced” the ARDC he only meant to keep the money of a dead person going to the “State,” so he signed the dead person’s name to it. Lucky for him, they believed enough of his bullcrap to only give him a three month suspension.

    He knows if he makes too big of a stink, it’s going to get slung right back at him. So, what better way to do it then to let his blogmeisters do it for him. Well, it’s a done deal. They all have a mess on their hands, and Brodsky gets the last laugh. How pathetic is that?

  116. Rescue, good ideas. If it were up to me I would remove the discussion completely. I think it helped them in those first few months by attracting people to the site, but even they must feel that it’s a burden at this point.

    That said, I still don’t attach much importance to the web site. But if it were my own, I’d get rid of the baggage.

  117. So much time has passed now since SPeterson went missing, and no credible news has been forthcoming, so I think the loosy goosy ones that like to hear themselves talk over there need to be reined in.

    I think maybe they’re trying to take those steps, maybe not.

    But, Peterson and his money grabbing scheme doesn’t win the day, in my eyes. and it stinks that he’s getting a pass here.

  118. If FSP is being scrutinised for the use and status of funds collected, then I imagine DefendDrew should be as well.

    The thing is, I think the whole FSP donation situation is completely overblown and only of concern to the 3 people who continually post about it here and that DefendDrew probably collected about $14 total so…

  119. Well… I have gone back and read the posts from this thread today. I will never understand the obsession with the FSP website, it’s tax status and/or the members.

    For weeks I have watched this tired charade of ‘concern’ by folks you would assume are just average citizens, going onto a blog to comment on a missing persons case.

    Everyday, the same people post from dawn to late night, complaining of the most trivial items that are so insignificant that it is laughable.

    And then on Tuesday evening there was this supposed ‘Aha’ moment when it was announced here about the posting counts changing on FSP. POSTING COUNTS ???????????????????????

    ARE YOU SERIOUS ???????????????????????

    POSTING COUNTS ???????????????????????

    And you want me to believe that you are concerned about finding Stacy Peterson, and you are TRACKING POSTING COUNTS????? Honestly, some folks need to do a better job at disguising their real motives.

    Joel Brodsky has publicly proven that he will go to the extremes to discredit witnesses in this case or anyone associated with them.

    The FSP website and its members are a great threat to Drew Peterson. He desperately wants the world to forget about Stacy, Kathleen, and any other topic associated with him.

    Yet, I feel certain that folks will not forget. And they will not give up. Stacy’s family will not give up. Kathleen Savio’s family will not give up.

    I also feel certain that the ISP and FBI will not give up. Drew Peterson, as quoted by Bolingbrook Police Chief McGrury, tainted the reputation of their police department.

    I value and appreciate all of the organizations and individuals who continue to research, search and devote their free time to finding justice for Stacy and Kathleen. I feel certain they would be very proud of you.

  120. Regarding the video where Drew indicated it might be a problem if his guns were returned:

    Drew’s response, to me, was a statement that clearly demonstrates his personality trait of intimidation. He loves the shock factor and the look on people’s face when he calmly stares them in the eye and makes his statements.

    He loves for people to be intimidated and fearful. He proved that with Kathleen when he broke into her house and attacked her on the staircase in her home.

    Drew Peterson has a fascination with control and domination. He publicly stated he was a controlling man with his family. I believe that he desperately wanted to control ANYONE he came in contact with. He had mastered the disguise of charm. He probably fooled many people. He surely doesn’t fool me.

    As of today, Drew knows that everyone knows he killed both Kathleen Savio and Stacy Peterson. He knows that law enforcement are going to charge him with two capital murder charges and that he will be arrested. The only thing that he can do, is to assist his attorney in trying to discredit witnesses and promote himself as Mr. Mom.

    And it has failed miserably. The public are not as stupid as he would like to believe.

    The party is over….turn out the lights. Drew, it’s time to come to terms with what you have done to your last two wives. There is nothing you can do for Thomas, Kristopher, Anthony or Lacy to bring back their mothers. The damage has been done.

  121. oh, 58apache, so well said. Standing up to the bullies isn’t always popular, but it’s classy.

  122. 58apache, yes … great post.

    And Rescue, you are right. My frustration is with the concern over (as apache58 commented on) people who are interested in FSP and whose posts have gone to zero and whose have gone up.

    Just wanted to clarify that my post above about possibly violating gatehouse’s rules was not directed toward Rescueapet. It just happened that our posts were both at “10:30” and it may look like I was responding to her.

    And now, onto the new thread.

    P.S. Gatehouse, I think your sudden change of the time, which had been correct for me, has caused me to have insomnia. 😉

    Agreed, Rescue. I took a day away from this place to get some perspective and if you read these threads with fresh eyes, the obsession with FSP and attempts to attach importance to what transpires seem completely irrelevant.

    Mismanagement of donation funds and poor web site management have nothing to do with the cases of Drew Peterson and his wives.

    I agree. However, don’t think for one second that Brodsky has not been using the FSP site to gain insight on what the “common people – jury of ones peers” are thinking in order to help build his case. There is no doubt in my mind that his main concentration is in using the media in any way that he can…and this includes him posting on blogs himself, AS himself.

    Just another way for him to sling mud about Stacy in the media and get the public to look down on Stacy. The victim. Sorry Joel, we will never overlook the fact that Stacy IS the victim, and not your client, Drew.

    We all know that in our own private lives we may have done things that we would just die of embarassment if our parents knew, and worse…if published on the front page of the newspaper. Everybody is guilty of this because we are all human.

    Joel Brodsky is now posting in a forum and it’s just another of his tactics to want to get people to look down on Stacy, the victim, and I think it is disgusting and somewhere in all this media circus of his…that the bar should seriously take a look at his unprofessionalism and beyond scumbucket tactics.

    Joel, this newest stunt of yours is below low.

    Everyone can overlook the overly emotional ways that the public posted on FSP as we are pretty much all guilty in our own way of contributing to something that was “less than nice”, however, for a professional lawyer to do what he did…..is disgusting. Just further reflections of Brodsky’s attempt to want to portray the victim as “bad”.

    Gosh, this reminds me of all the women that would not come forth after being brutally raped because of “the old days” of being told “they asked for it”. These are not those days, Brodsky. Your attempt to slander Stacy and Cassandra with your talk of those photographs will not work. Afterall, just like the poster stated…everyone knows who took the pictures. Drew did.

    Shame on you. (add the h) This man should be disbarred. For more reasons than one.)

    I’ve got a good idea. Why don’t you switch money scamming website schemes for a while, and ask Brodsky to publish an accounting of Drew’s haul. Ask for proof that he reported his windfall to the IRS. Now, that’s a scam.

    I would totally be willing to do that IF I had donated, asked for the information, was cussed at, accused of being a suspected murder, etc…

    Not to mention, there was no talk on his site about being tax exempt.

  126. Good morning, lavanda. The first link requires registration. Can you try posting a link using the “cached” page of the post, or just post his comment here?

    Thanks.

    Thanks.

    Rescue, here it is. There are some very controversial points of view posted on that site. You all might want to check it out.

    I have never seen the picture of Drew you are reffering to. I have seen (and have in my very large file) alot of pictures of Stacy and Drew on vacation and some pictures of Stacy and Casandra posing for pictures with Drew’s swat outfit and AR-15. There are some levels of nudity in these pictures, but nothing obscene or exposing of “private” parts. I would be interested in seeing the picture you are referring to. Where can I see it?

  128. cfs – The man has lost his way, I’m afraid. He’s lost the capacity to be a respectable, dignified attorney, working on behalf of his client.

    He has a client that has not been charged with a crime, not even a traffic violation. He may have helped his client collect a large sum of money for his defense, yet, he’s barely made a few court appearances for some minor legal issues at the moment. It is obvious he has way too much time on his hands, because, he’s not in court everyday for Peterson, and I can’t imagine that his phone is ringing off the hook with potential murder suspects looking for him to represent them.

    I think Brodsky will do a good enough job on his own crashing and burning. He is one piece of work.

  129. He certainly is Rescue, and honestly, I don’t believe he probably ever had the capacity to be a “respectable, dignified attorney, working on behalf of his client” as you wrote. His career has been jaded throughout, according to what I’ve read about him.

  130. I even read a quote from him recently where he said he’s not really done much in the way of defense for Drew, something on that order, since he’s not been charged with a crime.

    By the way – don’t quote me on that. I’m not going to find the article, copy the article, print the article, comment on it’s validity, whether it was an exact quote, it was a reporter saying he said it, well …. you get the idea, LOL.

  131. I understand. Read that too…..that he wasn’t having to spend much time on this case yet, so he had not incurred much in the way of legal fees, or something to that nature.

  132. It will be intersting to see wh is testifying today. Really think we won’t hear from Drew’s sons until this summer, so it would surprise me if they are there.

    Well, I’ve got to ge out of here. See you all later.
