Your evidence has hardly been convincing...and in some cases...it didn’t even exist.
I never said that the psychiatrists were incompetent. I said that they were working with what Ronnie gave them (while he was trying to convince them that he was crazy).
As for the lying...over the years...numerous friends have admitted lying for Ronnie.

Wow...some post on some message board by some person named hip. Now THAT’S a reliable source of information!

Why does that matter?
Here is a portion of a letter to Newsday (published on April 18, 1986). It was written by Adele Fagan...the mother of Grace Fagan (who was Dawn’s best friend). She was writing in response to the article that you mentioned earlier in this thread...
Adele Fagan wrote:This challenging child who grew into a merciless killer came from a loving family who tried to love him. They weren't perfect, they fought a lot and probably gave their children too much too soon. But they also had an abiding religious faith, friends and family who shared their dreams and aspirations. Like the sign hung in their yard, they had "High Hopes."
I was not as close to the family as my daughter was. But I do know that the picture of them drawn by the poor soul who destroyed them is false.
...that tells me all I need to know...that the DeFeos were a very normal family. Much like my own family...we weren’t perfect...we fought a lot...but we had religious faith...and lots of friends and family.
And even if I did speak to someone who knew the family...and that person denied the abuse claims...you would just dismiss that person as trying to protect the reputation of the family.
Kinda like you did here...

So some former Amityville cop calls Mr. DeFeo a scumbag...and you think that's evidence that Mr. DeFeo abused Mrs. DeFeo, Dawn, Allison, Marc, and John.
But when a former neighbor (who lived two houses away) emphatically states that Mr. DeFeo was NOT abusive...you just dismiss it.
