Poll: Should Norm Wielsch Appear on Dr. Phil?

Judge ruled out LA trip to Dr. Phil McGraw's television show for police corruption defendant.

in Los Angeles and get some therapy.

One federal judge granted the permission for Norm Wielsch. A second one Monday said not so fast. Wielsch is the former czar of a Contra Costa drug enforcement squad, who is free on $100,000 bail.

The judges can't decide. Maybe it's up to the Patch readers to deliver a verdict. Hence this poll.

Snafu update: The original poll posted with this story was misleading in implying that Wielsch was to receive an appearance fee for appearing on the Dr. Phil Show; he was not, according to Wielsch's lawyer. The poll answers have been revised to reflect that. Patch apologizes to those who wasted their votes on the original poll!

Maybe this money will go to pay for his defense.

He didn't appear. It filmed yesterday and was a joke anyhow. Dr. Phil blamed all of the wrong people and only wanted to scold those people for not tipping him off when he got duped. He was classic Dr. Phil. All grandstanding and no substance.

How many other Americans are suffering from the overwhelming burden of medical bills for a devastating illness to themselves or a loved one? Millions! Do they "allegedly" begin operating a criminal enterprise to pay the medical bills? Norm Wielsch had far more resources to help him shoulder the burden of the medical bills than other Americans. No mercy for Norm Wielsch! Maximum sentence for Norm Wielsch!
