Emily Glass is a victim of deceit

By SJ Otto
I realize that some people do bad things, such as murdering a child, but I doubt if any person deserves what Emily Glass is going through. She has been harangued by the press, by the police and by people interested in the case who follow her around.
Even when a person is bad, that does not entitle the police to lying, deceit and manipulation of a persons emotions.

That appears to be what was done to get Glass[1]
to tell a Private Investigator David Marshburn were Lucas Hernandez's body was. According to The Wichita Eagle:

"Marshburn told Grace the approach he took with Glass was to accuse her. He said he "basically went at her as, 'I know you did it. I'm here. I can help you. What can I do for you?'" He also told (Crime Stories with Nancy)Grace that Glass admitted to using methamphetamine while Lucas and her 1-year-old daughter were at home and that she let a homeless man spend the night at her house just before she reported Lucas missing to police."


"Marshburn describes Glass as "cold and callous"

Maybe he felt that way towards her. But manipulating her and pretending to befriend was not the way to go about it. The ends don't justify the means. We need to trust the police and those who do their bidding. Lying and deceiving us is not the way to earn that trust. They  may solve this case a little sooner, but they have lost my respect and the respect of others.

[1] For background information, Lucas was reported missing now for three months. His stop mother, Emily Glass has been in and out of jail and court for suspected child abuse. Lucas' body was found just a few days ago.
