Hi again Christina. I visited your web site and read some documents there that I hadn't seen for a long time. If you have any specific questions I would be glad to answer if I can. One thing I read at your site was about the Long Beach PD throwing a party for him. I have spent many a day in the last 10 or 15 years with the Long Beach PD, mostly Intelligence guys and detectives, and learned that most of the cops there don't think much of MacDonald. More than one of them recounted a football game they played against the hospital employees and they all said that Jeff was sadistic and very violent. I would be very surprised if you could find much support for him from that location. I can identify with the cops there initially supporting him since he did work on one of their guys who got shot. Cops tend to get close to someone who helps one of their own. But after they learned of the real Jeff they started backing off.
Well if you have anything specific I can help you with let me know.
