The Crumbling Foundation

I've noticed of late a certain degree of discouragement regarding the fact that, despite the compelling testimony and evidence featured in Soaked In Bleach, the Cobain case has not yet reopened. While this naturally is frustrating given the various remarkable and factually-indisputable proclamations in the film from leading law enforcement and forensic voices, be reassured that as a result of this testimony a massive and irreparable crack has been created in the foundation of lies bearing on the circumstances of Mr. Cobain's death.

Norm Stamper's and Vernon J. Geberth's testimony, among others, is on record, it's there forever, and each day that someone new sees and hears former Chief Stamper express unhesitatingly that he would reopen the case if he were chief again and those with a motive to see Mr. Cobain dead should have been scrutinized, or former NYPD Lieutenant-Commander Geberth assert that the 1994 investigation team committed cardinal errors in death investigation protocol, that foundation of deceit grows more fragile and closer to collapse.

And this of course is what those disinterested in accountability have feared all along. 

It's the reason that the deceased has been shamelessly dragged through the mud in order to falsely hype the suicide myth and to thereby deflect the proper location of suspicion; it's why those cease and desist letters were sent to theaters in an attempt to deter an obviously proper and legal exercise of the First Amendment; and, among many other examples, it's why an unlawful campaign to sabotage the ratings of Soaked In Bleach was carried-out.

Know too that those disinterested in accountability want you to lose faith – they want you meek and to succumb to a sense of futility; for this is how they maintain control and avoid meaningful scrutiny of their actions.  Don't give them that power.
 
The fact is the remarkable and courageous testimony of Chief Stamper, and others, is out in the open and can't be “put back in the bag” – it's going to continue, in various ways, to fissure and erode that illegitimate foundation set in place over twenty-one years ago until, finally, the accountability and justice long-withheld from Mr. Cobain is secured.
