GOOD.  We need more of this.  Put those quacks out of business.

"Whether it will be collectible, we're going to pursue that," said the couple's attorney, Andrew Sommerman.

I can answer that for you.  It won't be.  Ever.

Yeah... you don't need a psychic to guess that one

No, but some of it might.  Depending on the state, there are plenty of remedies available for judgment creditors.  Wage garnishment, bank levy, etc.

Seven million? That's, like, nothing to these psychic guys. It's like, poof, poof, poof, with the lottery numbers and presto, it's all theirs. Oh, yeah, it's all true. Certainly the dead will rise for vengeance in this particular case.

A pox on both their houses.

I don't think we should be rewarding the people who are so gullible that they resort to psychics.

weird case.

i think that there's a better case against the cops and the media.  it should be pretty well known that statements made by a psychic are useless.  i don't see how a psychic could defame someone.  but the other people could actually defame someone.

Psychic: "I have no knowledge and am not aware of any situation or circumstance that would require me to appear, or give a deposition."

Why would you require any hack?
 
2013-06-13 03:56:09 PM  
Wait a minute.  A psychic told the cops they'd find a mass grave on these folks' property, and the cops just went with it?  Is there more to this?  Please tell me there's more to this.

"When police started their investigation, they repeated what Gridley had said to the local media. "

I shouldn't be surprised that the county actually repeated heresy to the media, but I am. I hope the couple got a decent payout from the county.

That judgement should be shared by whatever judge and/or municipality authorized a warrant based on the drivel coming from someone who thinks their psychic.  Next we'll have police casting chicken bones to pick which crack house to raid.  Farkin idiots should pay.  Dearly.

(reads TFA)

OK, the cops should be fired.  Every one of them.

fta:  Gridley told police that they would find 25 to 30 bodies in the mass grave. The self-described psychic/reverend also told the officers there would be children's bones in the walls of the grave and that they would find "stuff written all over the walls in blood."

They hired the wrong psychic.  If they hired this one, I bet that he would have found it; after all, he did find the dinosaur killer.

So you're saying the chicken bones are no longer probable cause?

bingo. the article reads as if the law enforcement and the media did the true damage. the town paid. the media involved should too. as per TFA the psychic talked shiat but published nothing.

It was the cops and the media that were gullible.  You can read about it in the article.

The best way to do that is to fund education so that we get rid of idiots who believe in superstitious nonsense. Texas is hardly a state that's going to do that, they love their superstitious nonsense.

Oh for crying out loud.  You're the third person who has pointed this out.  After the first person posted, I read TFA and posted again.

We shouldn't value the opinions of people too lazy to read the entire thread, either.

I know a chick whose dad disappeared while moving cross country to join the rest of the family.

Her mom paid sylvia browne a shiat ton of money to be told "your husband is alive, living a gay lifestyle".

Turned out he was long dead, murdered by a hitchhiker.

Wonder if she could've made any money off the lady for pain and suffering caused by the idea her husband had left her?

/do psychics make you sign a promise not to sue if it turns out "their angels" told them a lie?
