Head Start Case Reminder

Sunday, April 8th, 2012

Dear Friend of Justice,

Just a reminder — NBC Dateline is doing a one-hour show about the Smith/Allen case tonight at seven p.m. Eastern.

We have a television. But we don’t have cable. And our reception is terrible. Thus I will be watching the show only after it goes online.

I am, however, interested in what others think about the show. You can leave a comment here or email me at

NBC Dateline to Air Segment on the Smith/Allen Case Sunday 7 p.m. Eastern

Friday, April 6th, 2012

Dear Friend of Justice,

I haven’t posted about this case for a long time. So you may want to refresh your memory with the following link:

I just learned from a friend’s Facebook posting that NBC Dateline is doing a segment about this case this Sunday at seven p.m. Eastern

My expectations, however, are very low.

For one thing, here is the only thing NBC has posted:

No mention of Joseph Allen at all.

I phoned Joseph. He knew nothing about the program.

He hadn’t been contacted. He is certain that his lawyer wasn’t contacted.

One thing every agrees about this case: They are either both guilty or both innocent.

I don’t plan to watch, but will be interested in hearing what you think.

Any publicity is good publicity I suppose.
