    Mary Brunner got a sweetheart deal aright…..her statement is chillingly matter of fact…..and she certainly was a most and willing partner in poor Gary’s MURDER and TORTURE….she ….imho…should be banged up with the REST of the Maniacs and the Key thrown away.

    • Lizzie Borden says:

      Not sure if she should be locked up with the key thrown away, but she did seem to get off scot-free while having a good deal of complicity in the crime, only for it to be determined that her testimony was not essential anyway. Holding a pillow over the guy’s head, rifling his pockets, cleaning up evidence–what did Atkins do that she didn’t do? Or for that matter Bruce Davis, who is still serving time for this murder (remind me what he did again?) Criminal justice works in strange ways.
