Susan Levy stood about two feet from the man convicted of killing her daughter Chandra and wasted no time telling Ingmar Guandique what she thought of him.
"Because of you, young man, you have caused us to live a Holocaust again," Levy said in a packed, hushed and rapt D.C. Superior courtroom Friday. "You have sentenced our entire family to days of sadness, tears and heartache. You are a hideous creature."
Levy stood at a podium, with Guandique two seats away, separated by his two attorneys. At times, Levy addressed Guandique directly and pointed at him. "How could you take my daughter's life? Did you really take her life? Look me in my eyes and tell me."

Chandra Levy belonged to the same sports gym I belonged to in downtown Washington, D.C., including that time period when she went "missing."
"Missing" -what a completely meaningless f-ing word when it applies to someone you have a connection to, no matter how tangential.
That "missing" photo of Chandra Levy, the one you you think you saw a million times on TV newscasts and insipid tabloid entertainment shows ten years ago, the one that was taped in the gym's front window on Connecticut Avenue north of M Street, and the other branch west on M Street towards CBS News' Washington bureau, that I and all the other gym members passed by everyday, well guess what, we saw it two million times.
And speaking of "missing," where were all the Lynda Meier "missing" posters in Hallandale Beach retail stores and restaurants and parks in the days immediately after she disappeared last summer? Oh, that's right, there weren't ANY.
Oh, so NOW you understand a little bit why that Hallandale Beach Police Dept. royal fuck-up last year under Police Chief Thomas Magill, that unprofessional Keytone Kop who threatened city residents and who used city funds and resources in an outrageous attempt to frame two innocent people to impress his dumb-ass boss, Mike Good -the useless former city manger that helped ruin this city through his sheer ineptness and incompetency, along with mayor Joy Cooper's full cooperation- an effort for which Magill was NEVER publicly punished or prosecuted for, made my head explode month-after-month?
Yes, Mendacious Magill!
See my July 1st, 2010 post, What's THE worst possible thing you can do during an active search for a 'missing person'? Another tale of HB incompetency under Police Chief Magillhttp://hallandalebeachblog.blogspot.com/2010/07/whats-worst-possible-thing-you-can-do.html
Yes, that jaw-dropping fiasco last year where the HB Police Dept. NEVER put up ANY posters at ANY of the dozens of restaurants, retail stores, parks that residents visit daily, in the days immediately after Meier's disappearance, where a possible witness may've been found. Not one.
They NEVER even so much as put one up at next door City Hall, but sure as hell, there was a taped missing poster for someone's pet at the time, right next to the City Hall front door.
But not for Lynda Meier.
Yes, I have THAT incriminating photo of the missing pet flyer at City Hall, just like I have the photos of all the dozens and dozens of storefront windows that had nothing in them about this missing HB resident, even though store/restaurant owners and managers I spoke to all over the city unanimously said they'd have put one up IF the HB Police Dept. or HB Crime Watch had merely asked them to.But they NEVER asked!!!
And where exactly was the HB Crime Watch crew under their brown-nosing dear leader, Alexander Lewy, who never said anything the least bit critical about what Magill was doing or saying -or not doing- all those years when he was police chief, and alive?
Sitting on their fat asses!
They sure the hell weren't passing out flyers at busy intersections or stores or restaurants like they would be in other cities across the country in the first 72 hours, when time is of the utmost essence in looking for her and witnesses.
Yes, now that I've given you more context, the parts of the Lynda Meier puzzle and the City of Hallandale Beach's abject incompetency are starting to become clearer to you now, aren't they?
Me, I wish that illegal alien Ingmar Guandique was going to be executed next week.
The more painful, the better.
I'd be happy to pull the switch, push the button or tell him for the last time, "Adios!"
As of today, Friday February 11th, 2011, Hallandale Beach resident Lynda Robyn Meier has now been missing for 251 days, and the city's incompetent Police Dept. has still NEVER publicly posted one missing poster of her at a site where HB residents would have seen it.
Extra, extra, read all about it...
But not in the sleepwalking South Florida news media of 2011, eh friends?
I could tell you which print and TV reporters/columnists/editors/producers know all about that scandal in Hallandale Beach, but who have consciously said or written NOTHING about it.
Just ask me their names, I'll be happy to tell you.
And watch how rarely the words illegal alien ever come up in the Chandra Levy murder story over the weekend.
How utterly predictable it all is.
