Don't downplay your part in all of this Doctor News! Lonny Soury has been publicly acknowledged as a pro bono public relations expert volunteering his time for Marty. And Lonny has done a great job. However, this is the first time many Long Islanders got a chance to see Eric "Rick" Friedman, the person known to everyone of Marty's supporters worldwide as Doctor News! I can't think of anyone I would want to advocate on behalf of me. Rick is being rather modest in not drawing attention to himself but for years now, Rich has managed to encapsulate tons of information in a very readable and understandable (very important to not very educate guys like me) format. This website has become almost a home to me and many all over the globe who visit it tens times a day, everyday for as long as it has been in existence. I really don't know what we are going to do with ourselves once it is finally shutdown, having accomplished its mission. I know I will certainly be looking forward to following Doctor News' next big mission from God.

A miscarriage of justice.

For seventeen years, supporters of Marty Tankleff have argued that point to all who would listen: to reporters, to state and federal courts, and to all those Long Islanders who logged into Tankleff's website to buy "Free Marty" t-shirts to aid in his defense.

And free Marty they did.

Recently, a state appellate court ruled that Tankleff should get a new trial, saying new evidence suggested others had killed Marty's parents in their Belle Terre home seventeen years ago, years that Marty Tankleff has spent behind bars.

All of this left Suffolk DA Tom Spota on the spot, criticized for how his office contested the new evidence. To his credit, Spota has asked Governor Spitzer to name a special prosecutor to handle the matter, and will soon dismiss all charges against Tankleff.

To celebrate, members of "Team Tankleff" gathered with Marty for a press conference. Praise is due to all: especially Bruce Barkett and his other pro-bono lawyers; his cousin, Ron Falbee; and Jay Salpeter, the private investigator who gathered such compelling evidence that it convinced the Appellate Division to order a new trial.

Their persistence has been rewarded. If there ever is another trial, they now know, it will involve other defendants.

My Response:

I definitely feel Marty was the scapegoat in the whole murder investigation of his parents with the REAL killers still out there. Marty's confession was coerced and unsigned by Marty and he has continuously professed his innocence.

I am happy his persistence of claiming his being innocent has paid off and charges against him have been dismissed by District Attorney Tom Spota.
Now, maybe they will be able to investigate , arrest , charge and place on trial the real killers who brutally murdered The Tankleff's. May justice be served upon them especially in light of all the new Evidence that was founded by Private Investigator Jay Salpeter.

Now Marty has the most difficult task in his life of trying to regain his life of years lost.

What an incredible whisp of glory to be exhonerated so powerfully. As a law school hopeful myself, I say, "Here! Here!" I'm left inspired.

Take care.

i have watched this case from day one...along with my interest in the case, i have been a lifelong friend of the tankleff family (marty's first cousin, autumn tankleff) and have waited impatiently for the day marty would be free and the true killers put behind bars....this travesty of justice is hopefully on the road to finding those criminals and also prosecuting the detective who falsely accused marty without ever making an effort to truly investigate this case....welcome home marty....enjoy the rest of your life surrounded by all those who love and care for you...and never faltering in their belief of your innocense


hey marty do u actually read this or is there another site YOU actually see yourself? want to talk to you..
