REBLOG: Defend Yourself?
So can you choose from 1 or 2 below?

Dean Tong, Author/Forensic Consultant
As Seen on Dr. Phil (TV show) and CBS 48 HOURS.
Dean Tong, MSc., is an expert in child victim hearsay. The real reason this web site exists and is necessary can be best described by some of the lyrics from this 1965 song by The Animals – “Cause I’m just a soul whose intentions are good…Oh Lord…Please don’t let me be misunderstood.”
Me, of course, refers to our well-meaning, well-intentioned, but sometimes misguided child protective investigators.And I am humbled to now say that my work has been acknowledged and recognized online at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dean_Tong.
