Hi Linda,

In "Eyewitnessed," Hopkins described why he made the videotapes of you and
your son -- because the case was of such historic importance that future
researchers should have access to these tapes to validate your
experiences. A reasonable position, in my opinion...

But as I've questioned in previous posts on this subject, don't you find
your experiences to be historically significant enough for you (and your
son) to suffer this relatively minor invasion of privacy?

Did Budd ever tell you that *nobody* would ever see these tapes? If he
didn't, I just don't see why you should be so outraged over these
materials becoming available to researchers for study. After all, that's
why they were made.

Regards,

Vince
