Your words, " You remember the Skinners don't you, sir? The wife was repeatedly raped and suffered beatings and dismemberment. The husband was forced to watch."

What? Are you nuts? Are you repeating hear say about the poor Skinners? Also, the reason police do NOT release crime details, is so they can cull from a decent jury pool. JEEZ!
