About

My name is Daniel Luke, and I alone write all of the content on this website.  There is nothing I detest more than the abuse of power.  I’m an expert on power, particularly the kind wielded by institutions over those who are too young, or too weak, or too insane, or too poor to resist its depredations.  I’ve seen them all, close up, on one side of the fulcrum or the other: the courts, jails, prisons, orphanages, insane asylums, hospitals, schools, and so on—in capacities as varied as inmate, abandoned five-year-old, patient, nurse, and student.  I do not bemoan my outcast state, but rather view it as a requisite condition to be able to collect all of the awful experiences that would confer upon a person a vantage point from which the view of reality could not be more crystal clear:  from the bottom always looking up.

That said, please do not mistake me for a misanthrope, a cynic, or a pessimist.  Neither Ignominy nor nobility observe class or background, and both seem to be evenly distributed through each layer of society.  We all have our own, very good reasons for hatred and spite, but I will use those impulses to fuel a willful defiance to show love, and kindness to others.

For those who are happy and prosperous, I celebrate your happiness and prosperity.  We all want the very same thing for ourselves.  It would be hypocrisy, therefore to begrudge you this.

In many ways, I consider myself to be a very fortunate person, especially when I consider this quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky:

What is hell? I maintain that it is the suffering of being unable to love.

Luckily, I do not suffer from the disorder of being unable to love.  If you, too, do not suffer from this disorder, I hope that you believe that a better society is possible, and is worth fighting for.

  • Thank you, Daniel for helping these two falsely imprisoned men , I hope anything I share can be of help also, excuse any typo errors, you are an excellent writer, and very descriptive. In New Albany, IN there was a SIMILAR case. David Camm, now released after his third trial, he now works for the innocence project in that local area. He was also falsely imprisoned (twice) also for the same thing murdering his wife and children, he was released upon his third trial out of that area, he possibly works at the innocence project (if this is correct name) in Louisville, KY across the bridge from Indiana (uncertain). The DA, and prosecuting attorneys withheld evidence they knew “who did this” Charles Boney, that was just released during the time of this murder that committed these murders and rapes. David Camm story is on Wikipedia. He has been on 20/20, he has written a book, and is now suing the state of Indiana. His attorneys had to take great measures to get the DNA accurate, the prosecutors were lying about, that are now being sued. I know what its like to be framed, I am framed right now, by my own attorneys, and my husbands crimes he reversed onto me, I am like Steven I have done ALL my own FEDERAL legal work. These are high profile White Collar Crimes committed against me, placed into fraud induced legal documents. I appreciate you for what you are doing to assist, it makes my heart smile! What is great about this for the first time the world is united on Stevens & Brendon’s injustice. I pray these men’s family’s are doing well, you know that Steven Avery “has a two new female attorneys as of January 8th, 2016”. Choice.org has almost 500,000.00 signatures, BUT HAS VERY FEW signatures THAT NEEDS FULFILLED BY FEBRUARY 6, 2016 to “Initiate a Federal Investigation” of the Sheriff’s Offices of Manitowoc County and Calumet County, Wisconsin https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/initiate-federal-investigation-sheriffs-department-manitowoc-county-and-calumet-county-wisconsin

    Have you seen this video? https://streamable.com/hvr5

    • No, I hadn’t seen it, but it was good work, although I had seen the TED talk before. It looks like someone’s been reading this site: http://overthrow.us/ryan-hillegas/ryan-hillegas-dupers-delight-that-smirk-that-says-so-much/ which is really cool.

      • I’m new to this site, although I’ve been fascinated with this case for a long time, especially since I live in. Wisconsin. When I watched MAM, I was very suspect of both RH and MH with their strange behavior (I am also getting my doctorate in psychology, so I am trained to notice inconsistencies). When RH is being cross examined, not only does he show the duper’s delight smirk but he also demonstrates content (quick downward motion and tight pursed lips) at various questions asked of him. His face gives so much away. He knows much more than he has ever led on.

  • He got away with out having to answer typical questions a lawyer would ask because they needed S. Avery to be the fall guy. 36 million.

  • In my personal opinion, as someone who has been stalked and threatened by an ex boyfriend, his only reason for going there was to check up on her. The dropping off something for Scott was just an excuse. Yes this can happen years after they break up especially if he was not seeing anyone and he suspected or knew that she was.

  • I came across this blog of the 2007 trial. It’s not a transcript but a briefing of what is happening. Notice Ryan’s statement on February 13th. He did talk to her when he saw her at her place that Sunday.

    The blog states: Hillegas, a registered nurse who works in cardiology at a Milwaukee-area hospital, said he had seen Halbach the weekend before, and she told him she was going to dress as a cowgirl for a Halloween party.

    Odd that he can remember a detail such as her costume but not what time of day this occurred?

    • And what was he dropping off for Scott Bloedorn? Was Scott Bloedorn at the house when the item was dropped off? He conveniently omits all of this information.
