Recently there has been a great deal of Blog Action and news on the Brenda Martin Case while I do not like the Mexican form of justice (or Lack of) I think this issue may come back and politically bight us in the backside.
The more I read about the case the more it stinks What I know of con-men/women is they tend to travel in groups and these groups are really good at self preservation. I think there is more to Ms Martin than meets the eye, and although there may be little or no proof that she is guilty but this does not mean that she is innocent. What most people do not know is that there is a considerable amount of missing money and the Mexican government may just be waiting out Ms Martin to see if she knows where this cash is and will use it to leverage leniency as she did when she turned in another of the member of the group to authorities.
If you want to read some of this from an insiders view slide on over to Roger Harrison’s website and your image of Ms Martin may change somewhat.
It seems that a number of Canadian’s share my concerns as I recently posted some comment’s on the CBC website, what is interesting is that out of 308 comments mine were in the top ten most recommended and the first one I posted was the #1 recommended post.
That said the media is flaunting Ms Martin as the innocent victim, my concern is that they might be in for a whole heap of embarrassment when Ms Martin’s act comes crumbling down.
Normally I am on the side of the accused, when it comes to Mexican justice, but something here smells so bad it would send skunks running.
She looks like she is acting and to be honest she is not good at it.

Here is an interesting piece of news. According to Roger Harrison a novelist who spent time with Alyn Waage and this crew of Miscreants none of them are all that innocent while Brenda Martin was little more than a cook according to Harrison who supports her as innocent, he has a few interesting things to say about her.
“Rebecca Roth is also serving time in the same jail as Brenda. Rebecca worked for Alyn as well. Brenda was arrested in February of ’06, Rebecca in March. According to Rebecca’s sister, Brenda gave Rebecca up in exchange for leniency.” (http://www.thewantednovel.com/brenda_martin.html)
I suspect that Ms Martin will do most of anything to avoid prison. Like I said before this whole situation stinks and any political party that wades into this sewage is going to come off smelling
