A Penny's Worth Of Thoughts On The Porco Case & Other Topics.

If Christopher Porco didn’t kill his father, Peter Porco, and almost kill his mother, then I don’t know who did. But I couldn’t vote to convict him based upon the junk the police and prosecutor have given to the press so far. Circumstantial evidence and Christopher’s calm demeanor when questioned by police are not enough to change a presumption of innocence to a presumption of guilt.

Which leads me to believe that the D. A.’s office must have more evidence than they’re letting anyone know about. (Then again maybe they don’t.) If they’ve got DNA evidence, that could be a problem, since Christopher Porco’s DNA would be all over the house anyway.

More about Porco later. Here are some items I would like to write about more extensively, but don't have the time right now.

DOCS prison guard drives while drunk and kills high school student in traffic accident. This guard just happened to be one of Jack Carroll’s gaolers.

Glenn Heller alleges that Alan Chartock & WAMC owe the IRS a lot of money.

Son of Sam killer has a web site.

Here’s a new Saratoga blog.

A new Montgomery County Magazine.

A new Fulton County Magazine.

Why is WNYT’s News Notes Blog nothing but a blank page?

Finally, thanks to the nearly one thousand people who stopped by to read my posts on DOCS. A special thanks to the people who read this blog everyday, even when what I write about isn’t so exciting.


  • Dan, Your posts are always thoughtful. I appreciate it.

    And Christopher Porco totally, totally did it.
