A few comments have come in recently information people claim to have, but can't or won't back up. I understand not having "proof" but wanting to comment about your personal experience. That is fine. In addition, if you give me or others something to go on, we can research it a bit more. For example, saying that Creative Frontiers School was dropped from the Child Action program, is something I can try to get information about. Saying there are documents that are out there that say things that dispute other things I have posted is so vague I can't possibly even begin to research.
It was claimed that this blog intentionally leaves out certain documents because they don't support whatever cause I am thought to have. Folks, I will be completely honest, I am entirely too lazy to pick and choose what parts of certain documents I publish. What I have, you get.
We keep hearing that there is another side to the story. Okay fine. Fair enough. So where is it? When the Creative Frontiers Facebook page was open to the public, that was prime opportunity for supporters and family to plead their case and to support their claims. Each and every excuse that was posted about the other day actually came from a supporter or family. Instead of using their public platform to provide factual information or explaining things, they've instead chose to create conspiracy theories, to bash victims, witnesses, other supporters, reporters, online commenters, blog writers, city officials, and even victims and their families in other cases where the criminal was convicted!
If you disagree with my interpretation or what others have to say, please share. Healthy debate is encouraged. We are all adults with independent thought. It is perfectly normal people to look at the same document and walk away with something different from it. I have respect for individuals who can disagree without name-calling and diverting from the seriousness of the topic. For example, the anonymous that questioned the interpretation of the DSS documents provided. He/she disagreed, but with respect, unlike some of the recent comments on the Sacbee website that were utterly ridiculous. Some claiming Mr. Adams wasn't at the school, some calling posters there names, and my favorite, as it was clear the commenters they were directing their anger at were women, telling them to get back in the kitchen and take care of their kids and husbands. The anonymous here (with regards to the DSS papers) argued a valid point articulately. The commenter on the SacBee website made him/herself look foolish and did nothing for their cause.
If you have information that disproves anything posted here, please share it. If you have further information about Robert Adams or CFS, please share it. If you are concerned about this blog having your name or email address, then create a new one on hotmail and use a fake name. It's free and easy to do. You can also use the comments section here to contact me. As all comments must be approved, I would see it. You can always preface whatever you want to tell me with something like "Tip/info, not actual comment to be published" then follow it with your message to me.
I would love to hear what some believe to be the "other side of the story". What is the other side to the resume issue? The building code violations? The lies about the business license? The fraudulent insurance application? I'd really like to hear it. There is proof that Robert Adams, and/or a family member directly lied and/or misled people with regards to ALL of these issues. There is no excuse. There is no good reason to lie about these. No one forced them to lie. They chose to lie, and now it makes them look bad. This isn't the fault of this blog.
Getting back to my original topic, if we are going to post things here as fact, we really need documentation. You can claim anything you want and say it is true, but without proof, it is nothing more than words. This doesn't mean you can't comment your opinion or experience, but we can't make a blog post about it unless there is something to back it up. I try very hard to research all of the information provided in the blog posts and make sure it is factual.
I am also adding this is again, because some clearly still don't get it; any comments here are the opinion or experiences of the writer, not of this blog. I will publish all comments unless they contain profanity, guesses at my identity or the identity of others commenting here, or have otherwise inappropriate content.
