Heads Up

Monday, March 23rd, 2009

So my cover story on the Haley Oliveaux video and the Jimmie Duncan case will go up at Reason tomorrow. It’s a bit longer than the online piece, and includes some new information about the case. The new info concerns Hayne’s testimony, as well as some other prosecutorial and police misconduct issues. I have more to come on the case, too.

I’ve also just obtained yet another video starring our favorite dentist, Michael West. Arrived in the mail today. This one isn’t nearly as disturbing. It’s just awesome. And hilarious. And in some ways, rather sad. Hope to have it up later this week.

UPDATE: Okay, after watching the video I’ll revise, and note that it is a little disturbing. But not nearly as disturbing as the Haley Oliveaux video. But more importantly, it’s irrefutable, slam-dunk proof of West’s complete and utter quackery. As if that weren’t already clear. More to come.

    It’s going to take quite a lot of ha-ha to make me think anything involving Michael West is hilarious.

    I’m looking forward to seeing what it is.

    Mr. Balko,

    Be sure of it’s authenticity. I’d hate to see you get setup and then discredited. It just seems . . . fishy.

    One miraculous proof positive video appearing is well . . . miraculous, but two . . . ?

    I advise an abundance of caution on authentication before going public.

    Thanks for the concern, but I know what I’m doing.

    “But not nearly as disturbing as the Haley Oliveaux video”

    Yeah, it would be hard to get more disturbing than that video. That was about as ghoulish as it gets, and I’m not exactly squemish.

    Geesh Radley, I am waiting for the finale and the credits to roll! LOL

    Can’t wait to see this next Episode in the Never-Ending-Hayne/West Saga of “As My Stomach Churns” or “As the Red Light Turns”!

    You do need a ‘catchy’ title for the series though…lol.

    How about “Many LIVES to GIVE”? Or “Creepy Candid Camera’?

    Oh wait…I know, “Mississippi CSI: TRUE Criminal Intent / Caught on TAPE!”
