KingCast network spots the spirit of Liko Kenney living on in Franconia; and a plea for help from the community.

We've got your back, brother.

The Franconia Collective has authorized KingCast to reproduce this letter (1/2) sent to the Concord Monitor, in which they openly praise Reporter Timmins for looking deeper into this tragedy. It's going in the Sunday paper, but you read it here first. We're just now really getting to the hidden evidence and cover-up part, and it took but 3 days to get there. Oopsie-Daisy, Kelly.

I just know Liko is up there laughing at the fact that we're exposing the improper actions of bad actors Cox, Dick and Wang in all matters related to this case. See comments.

Please thank staff reporter Annmarie Timmins for me and other concerned citizens of Franconia, Easton, and Sugar Hill. Her reporting on these events and the aftermath buck the trend of other publications who report them with a bias toward the AG's office and their account of the events.

She is probably aware there is so much more to the story than what other main steam media is willing to report. Please keep up the good work, the residents of this state need the eithical journalism without bias that Annmarie and your publication provide.

Attached is a letter that I, along with a group of concerned citizens submitted to your "Letters" department as well as other local
publications. I urge you to print this letter in its entirety, it's message is important and is a grave concern for us.

Dear Ladies and Gents, one day I have a Dream that you will be able to add your voices to the rich salad bowl of treats that America has to offer without fear of retaliation by the government.

Until then, you are smack on point but next time please say "substantial concern," and I will see you in short order.

Dear Attorneys Ayotte and Strelzin:

Many people are congratulating me over at the blawg for exposing a clear cut travesty of process -- i.e. you all knew about the digital audio of several witnesses and failed to produce it or you didn't know despite having 6 weeks to review. Ninety-nine per cent of the people think it's the former, but really either way it's a serious indictment of your office.

I am relieved in some measure to know that my instinctual "giggle test" was correct, but really I didn't want to have this argument with you. You brought that bogus UPL case against me and filed it prior to showing me the written complaints from the alleged victims and I told you in this 9 Dec. 2005 letter it was a Due Process violation, but I honestly had let that go, and was busy cheering you on in the data mining commerical First Amendment speech case and you were busy monitoring, or purportedly monitoring the Right-to-Know situation with the New Hampshire School Boards Association, NHSBA.

But you of all people should know I wouldn't tolerate a cover-up in this case. You know I ski. You know I love the outdoors and you know I play tennis. And you know that your UPL and the other bogus charges kept me from Tamarack Tennis camp. And who knows, if I had been there just by bumping into Liko, maybe sharing some of my knowledge and World it might have changed the timing of ALL OF THIS. It might have happened sooner, or it might not have happened at all. He was just almost there when McKay made him back into Connie McKenzie's house and maced him without comment or directive, but with substantial John Wayne swagger and contemptuous attitude, and Liko snapped.

I told you before, this case is our destiny, and your office is stinking the place up, badly.

Very Truly Yours,

Christopher King, J.D.

"when McKay made him back into Connie McKenzie's house and maced him without comment or directive, but with substantial John Wayne swagger and contemptuous attitude, and Liko snapped."

When Liko, fresh from his conviction in the court of law, was high on drugs, carrying a pistol without a license and leading the police officer on a chase after a moving violation, shot the officer multiple times, John Wayne style, and then proceeded to sadistically mutilate the officer by crushing and dragging him under his car -- all with a contemptuous, and murderous, attitude.

Christopher King said...

Well sir, first of all nothing that McKay observed gave him the right to treat Liko that way, not to mention the 110lb blonde woman he maced the heck out of; We'll put that on KingCast for you to see soon.

And you have no knowledge that Liko was high on drugs, and we told you already you are wrong about how Liko went to the police after he found out a troubled, volatile 15-year old (not his cousin) had stolen his gun. The police ignored it, putting others at risk so Liko took it back.

Could have been a good time for responsible LE to step in and bond with the kid instead of putting on a condom and bending him over, but no I guess they like it that way.

Then McKay gloated to the media that "They just missed it, Bode Miller's cousin got convicted."

That's so professional.

As I say, if we had nine lives, McKay deserved to lose at least one of them for being such a weenie.

Thanks for stopping by.

Christopher King said...

Also, you have no idea whether Liko intentionally tried to run over McKay. As you can see McKay would have been in Liko's path toward Tamarack as he left, still scared sh*tless.

And to think, just second earlier Liko had motioned and yelled for his eventual killer to protect him from McKay. Oh, yeah we're going to slow that down nice and good when we make our movie so you can see that.

Oh, yeah: Even if the story is as alleged by you, does that give the State the right to withhold and lie about material witness statements?

I would hope not, but perhaps you have another view of THAT as well.

Peace.

9:41 Liko was killing his abuser, and he didn't do it in a john wayne style. Liko had a style all his own. I'm just glad he had the right caliber to remove this terrorist from the earth. Liko was not sadistic-- McKay and Floyd however WERE. This can be demonstrated. If McKay didn't want his genitals mutilated underneath the car he shouldn't have blinded the driver with pepper spray.

Maybe we need to have a specific law as opposed to protocol.

THE LIKO LAW

That way we can refer to a specific law provided for traffic stops when we feel we are in a very compromised situation.

We as women are told time and again to drive to a well lit area if we feel unsafe when pulled over for a traffic stop. Well, if that can happen to Liko, then it can happen to me. I thought I had the right to do that, but now I see that I don't.

If I put myself in that same position and I did not feel safe with a police officer, I understand Liko driving away. Especially, if I had repeatedly asked for another officer to bear witness or handle the traffic stop. Based on the continued refusal, I would become more anxious and feel that my fear was validated. Just because you wear a badge doesn't mean I can trust you with my well-being.

The cop insisting that I don't have the right to protect myself would further my mistrust in his intent. I can see myself telling the officer that I would meet him where there are witnesses. If he told me no to that - I can tell you that I would know that cop was bad news and I would attempt to go to another location.

The whole outrageous bashing and pushing of the car thing would have sent me over the edge; I would be terrified. I would not have a gun and would get a face full of pepper-spray and hauled off in hand-cuffs. God only knows what would happen to me at the Police Station.

We are being told this is "OK" behavior from a cop? Here in America? Do what you are told even if you are in fear? Above all else..."Do not challenge my Auuuthoriteey".

Something is seriously wrong here.

You know, Debby on that "Liko Law," that's an awesome concept but it would be so hard to define:

"If you've ever taken a beat-down just after informing an officer that he had no right to keep you somewhere without Good Cause," then the next time the officer pulls you over and rams your car, further off the road than it already was, you have the right to do..... do what?"

Liko did all he thought he had left to do, after McKay tried to cut off egress, maced him without comment or directive, but with substantial John Wayne swagger and contemptuous attitude and calmly walked back to his car to do.... to do WHAT?

Kill him?


I can kind of see how Liko thought that, and if McKay weren't such jerk he might be alive today.

How about "sorry I maced you out of concern for my safety, I'm not going to hurt you but I need to immobilize you briefly until backup arrives."

SOMETHING, man, SOMETHING.

But again, how concerned was his happy ass, given how he did it and strutted away, like a cat shows a dying mouse to its owner:

Letter sent to AnnMarie Timmons


Ann Marie,

You are like a ray of shining light to not only many Franconia citizens but for people throughout the state. Many people are very upset over the extreme slant that the media has put on the Franconia Tragedy. We are still deeply concerned about ongoing problems in our communities with the PD. We hope to learn something about how we as Communities/Law Enforcement can work together in harmony for the greater good of all. The only way we can truly do this is by facing the bare truth and building from there.

Your effort to report the facts with as much respect as possible is more valuable than you probably realize. I want to make sure that you know we see a rare journalist in you, a journalist of a time long past, but sorely needed. To have a reporter even attempt to get as close to the truth as possible is a true gift.

Thank you,
Deeply Concerned Citizen

And you have no knowledge that Liko was high on drugs

Such was the autopsy report. The fact that the murderous Liko didn't have a license to carry that gun is also documented. Liko, in view of his criminal record, was rightly afraid to be caught while driving over the speed limit and been on illegal intoxicants.

Also, you have no idea whether Liko intentionally tried to run over McKay. As you can see McKay would have been in Liko's path toward Tamarack as he left, still scared sh*tless.

That's the funniest argument I ever heard, and certainly one quite uncommon for a JD to produce... Of course Liko just did some target practice, and McKay's body just happened to be in the path of his bullets! And how dares McKay, all bleeding and in pain, to be in the path of glorious Liko, as that pot-smoking hero flees the crime scene!

Seriously, Liko ran him over twice, inflicting gruesome injuries that ultimately led to MsKay's death.

http://www.unionleader.com/pda.aspx

McKay, whose feet were sticking out from beneath Kenney's car after Kenney ran him over, also suffered a fractured skull and left pelvis and lacerations to his scalp, face, groin and knee, the state files show. He was still alive and breathing when police and others at the scene lifted the car off him.

Kenney's autopsy revealed he used marijuana shortly before his death. A metal smoking pipe, what appeared to be marijuana seeds and a juice and a half-gallon of vodka also were found in his car.

It is not clear why McKay turned his back and walked away from Kenney's car after he pepper sprayed him, especially since McKay posted a warning to his fellow officers on April 25 stating Kenney recently was convicted of simple assault and was known to own a .45 caliber semiautomatic handugn and a blow gun with steel shafted darts, the investigative files show.

Foro:

There was marijuana in his bloodstream, so what. Did he act irrationally to the officer?

No. He asked for backup and help from Floyd, as we will show in slow motion on our video.

And even if all of what you say is taken at face value from the union misleader, the thing you have failed to address is the patent cover up for crissakes?

That's foul, man and it violates Caleb Macaulay's rights too, or did you somehow miss the fact that tackhead Shooter Floyd threatened a cop right there that night too:

"Carful son, I'm quicker'n you."

*******

Since you won't address the effect of years of McKay's nazi style behaviour, I'll let another reviewing officer do so from today's Union Leader:

""Kingsman" of Michigan questioned McKay's decision to ram Kenney's car backward several feet ("Is this normal police behavior?" he wrote) and wondered why McKay turned away from Kenney after spraying him with pepper spray. McKay knew Kenney owned a gun; just three weeks prior, McKay had posted a safety notice in the Franconia station cautioning officers to be careful with Kenney because he could be armed.

"When this first happened," Kingsman wrote on officer.com, "I was all sure the officer had been ambushed. He had my sympathy. But after seeing the video . . . he acted unprofessionally.

"That being said," Kingsman continued, "he did not deserve what happened to him."


As I said, if people had 9 lives McKay deserved to lose at least one that night for using his position of authority to set back police and community relations 30 years.

Have a nice day. I'm going to work on our movie using all the comments from the townsfolk that CNN and all the major media cut out to fit the story they want to tell.... out of control kid.... nice, friendly cop.... hero floyd....

That's nonsense and so is your rap, dude.

Chris,


Forget 2003 - Liko was too idealistic to realize where that whole thing was going by asking questions.

LIKO LAW

Liko was afraid of McKay. If we have reason to fear and Officer or feel unsafe, we should have the right to move to a more open space, drive to the police station or bring another officer to the scene by agreement with the Officer. We should not be expected to sacrifice our own personal safety because a cop says so.

The last button McKay pushed on Liko was the OC spray.

That was the final straw. Liko tried to flea for his own safety. McKay was waiting for him, thats why he ignored speeding cars.

Dear Mr. King JD,

let me quote the closing line of your missive:

That's nonsense and so is your rap, dude.

Oh I see! Humbly, I stand korrekted. Let's turn to the brilliant comments from our Juris Doctor:

There was marijuana in his bloodstream, so what. Did he act irrationally to the officer?

ROTFLMAO! I would say that pumping a few slugs into a person, and than crushing his skull and pelvis with a vehicle is little tiny bit irrational.

Since you won't address the effect of years of McKay's nazi style behaviour, I'll let another reviewing officer do so from today's Union Leader

You must have seen the video of Liko's '03 arrest. He acted like a fool and a whiny kid, and officers didn't behave like Nazis at all. If Liko was a reasonable person with a little respect to other human beings, this tragedy wouldn't have happened.

And again, in 2007, officer McKay didn't follow some evil Nazi code, but simply the training he had and rules that every other policeman had to follow. If you don't stop while being a suspect in a traffic violation, the police have the right to put you under arrest. To do that, if you still resist, they can use force.

In referring to Nazis, you are stooping as low as to employ the ad hominem and reductio ad Hitlerum techniques, which is classic demagoguery.

If the state officials are guilty of breaking some kind of law here, they should answer, by all means. However, it's real sick to continue eulogizing an unstable and irresponsible drug user who clearly didn't deserve the priviledge of gun ownership and who didn't had respect for the Law himself. Had he had 99 lives, he fully deserved to lose all of them.

[Verse 1]
A "100 Miles and Runnin" on the block cause I'm wanted
The cops try to say I'm under arrest for nuttin
Since I'm young and paid, drivin a big truck
One of the main reasons they don't give a fuck
When you got a warrant that's not good
Dirty cops throw your hands on the hot hood
Gettin frisked by the you know who
Crooked ass detectives don't even have a clue
When it's time to run, I jump gates, throw milk crates
do whatever so I don't get shipped upstate
First flat, already tryna bust caps
Talkin about they tryin to get somebody's purse back
They wanna see me under the precinct
gettin disrepected, treated undecent
That's why I bounce when they pass by
Fuck that, I ain't goin out like the last guy

[Chorus]
It's a dirty game out there
Crooked cops takin shots
Snitches sayin names out there
This ain't your block, I got dibs on that
Run in cribs with kids and blow wigs back
Police is grimy, lookin like "try me"
Ready to lock me up, ridin by me
I just put my game face on
Five of us deep, all singin the same song

[Verse 2]
Yeah, put your hands up, y'all know what time it is
We all going, whether the shit's mine or his
Tryna catch a nigga six in the morning
In my boxers, catch a nigga while he yawning (feet don't fail me now)
I can't get locked up, there's no stash for the bail now
So a nigga gotta change the routine, take a little trip OT
Catch a new scene, playin big man games
Get knocked said no names
And I don't even sell dope or cocaine
In the streets, my block's full of track stars
Everybody tryna look like some rap star
For every dirty cop there's another block
full of hard rocks 'bout to get got
DT's when they pass us, they harass us
I gotta rock a vest, cause they even blast us

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
They never seen me comin
Jumpin over they car, like that badge don't mean nothin
My third strike, see me on a dirt bike
All they know is that he's black and his shirt's white
I have no regards for authority
all I know is that I'm gettin money and have more to feed
When they start with that "come out with your hands up"
Talkin 'bout "put his ass in handcuffs"
I'm a hit the back streets, throw the heat in my man's jeep
While it movin and stack heat
I can't sleep cause I'm p-noid
Always lookin out for unmarked cars and decoys
It's a jungle so I got a good lawyer
And all y'all DA's I got somethin for ya
I'm still gettin blunted when the cops is comin
Shots got me a "100 Miles and Runnin"

I don't have a problem with the "ram", which in fact didn't leave (as far as I could see in the video) any large dents in the Toyota driven by the deranged Liko. We'll never know why McKay turned away, and yes, that wasn't the brightest idea given that he knew that he was dealing with a dangerous and unstable individual. My theory is that when he decided to spray, he saw that Liko was high on drugs and he wasn't affect the arrest until the backup arrived.

Nice theory, on superman McKay knowing Liko was buzzed. McKay saw that real fast. From his SUV even. That's why the spray was at the ready. Don't ya know, everyone is on drugs and should be OC'd? To test if they're on drugs, procedure is to tailgate and see if the perp driver swerves, I guess?

The story ended when my friend fired his worker, and his insurance covered the damage to the worker's property.

Them's your "heros" at work. I got other stories. I think most people do, but like me, want to stay anyonymous. Too scary....

I have the utmost respect for real cops, like Briggs, who was murdered by a thug who should not have been walking the streets.

Briggs was a hero. McKay was not. McKay shares repsonsibility for his own death. Not everyone in Franconia is stupid.

Cops only think they are smarter than everyone else. We just mind our manners, cuz we're all niggas in the minds of the McKays out there.

I can bet the the cops didn't break into that truck, not having a warrant. If they used flashlights to inspect the damage on the truck left from the collision with an object, that didn't violate anybody's rights. And, they had to enter the property to even announce themselves. The dog should have been on the leash anyway.

I live in Suffolk myself. I was ticketed a couple of times for traffic violations. Also, I called the police once when somebody was throwing smoke grenades into people's mailboxes (there was no way of telling if the stuff was on fire on not). On every occasion, the Suffolk police were corteous and professional.

McKay may have been a pushy cop disliked by many. If you declare that this was sufficient grounds to take his life, imho, you are exhibitng a dark side of you which is probably worse than whatever faults McKay may have had.

It's sad but true that there are a few bad cops out there, just like there are child molesting priests.....and just like the church has done for many years, the good cops have felt some kind of brotherhood (or is it fear) that they protect them even when they know it isn't right. It's not just New Hampshire that has the problem, but across the country. Perhaps something good can come of this case....things to learn for everyone so that these two men did not die in vain and their families will have the peace of knowing some closure.This didn't need to happen, but it did....let's make sure it doesn't happen again.

"Kenney's autopsy revealed he used marijuana shortly before his death. A metal smoking pipe, what appeared to be marijuana seeds and a juice and a half-gallon of vodka also were found in his car.

It is not clear why McKay turned his back and walked away from Kenney's car after he pepper sprayed him, especially since McKay posted a warning to his fellow officers on April 25 stating Kenney recently was convicted of simple assault and was known to own a .45 caliber semiautomatic handugn and a blow gun with steel shafted darts, the investigative files show.

FURTHER, ANOTHER FAVORITE TRICK IS TO SAY THEY SMELL ALCOHOL ON THE DRIVER'S BREATH (GOOD REASON TO SEARCH).

Having ski raced as a youth on the same courses as the infamous Kenney’s and raised to question authority and convention I feel more than a little affinity for the clan. From my perspective and bias based on interactions with other seemingly misguided local NH town police the conclusion I draw is that the actions of the pursuing officer were gravely inappropriate and the citizen vigilante actions were at least partly motivated by a predisposition to act out gunplay fantasies. It seems that the mass media has failed clearly report potentially wrongdoing and is predisposed to propagate idealistic imagery of law enforcement. It is of little consequence that the blog owner’s tennis camp application was rejected or that I couldn’t finish within twenty places of a Kenney on a ski course. I love this state and country. This family is iconic to both and deserves justice as do we all. This is only place that readily displays a focus on obtaining just that.

There is no relevance to the claims of drugs in Liko's system. The legal issue, as Chris said, is what if any intent was affected by drugs; did they criminally affect what happened to anyone on 5-11.

I think here is no way to know beyond a reasonable doubt - the criminal proof standard. Therefore drug issues only obfuscate the real issues: Why did McKay pursue Liko and Caleb so violently given so many surrounding circumstances proving beyond reasonable doubt that Liko and Caleb were no threat to McKay or anyone else? What authority did McKay believe he had to act as he did, if any, and if he had none,
why is NH not investigating the case very thoroughly and leading NH toward a remedy of police abuse?

Then there are all of the Floyd issues. Why is NH not pursuing him, his murder of Liko, and his assault and probable battery of Caleb?

The 2007 film shows McKay, the trained public servant, ostensibly sober and sane, representing the constitutions and laws of NH and the USA, deciding to use vehicular and chemical weapons to complete a traffic stop of unknown cause and lawfulness, where the driver simply drove away at noraml speed from stop 1, indicated he would stop down the road, did so voluntarily, where McKay assaulted and battered Liko and Caleb.

We have yet to see any proof or state assertion, let alone a defense after criticism, of any traffic violation. We have clear evidence of an assault and battery of Liko Kenney and Caleb Macaluey by McKay by police vehicle (ramming) and pepper spray. Though Liko shot McKay, we do not know exactly why, we do not know Liko intended to kill McKay, and we do not know Liko intended to run over McKay's body.

We do know the state has lied repeatedly to the press and private citizens who have directly inquired of AG Ayotte and others as to NH's version of the facts.
Shooter Floyd did not demand that Liko drop his weapon before Floyd murdered Liko. Liko did have some kind of court order to have someone other than McKay administer NH laws to Liko. McKay was not within Franconia PD protocols when he rammed and pepper sprayed the stop victims.
These facts are plain, yet the state and most media have buried these facts.

You would have to be a fool to think NH is seeking justice in this case, and it is clear these bastards feel they will get away with this.

Both principal witnesses are dead, so demanding an "assertion" is moot.

Police in some circumstance may employ a non-deadly force agains a fleeing suspect. Don't tell me you aren't aware of this simple fact of life.

Though Liko shot McKay, we do not know exactly why

Why does it matter? Maybe Liko was acting out a lifelong fantasy of crippling a person with a few shots first, and then putting them to slow and gruesome death by crushing them, and causing lacerations to various parts of their body, using a car.

we do not know Liko intended to kill McKay, and we do not know Liko intended to run over McKay's body.

This is truly precious! How about that: the 9/11 perpetrators were simply going on a joy ride in the hijacked planes, and by accident both crashed into the WTC towers... Probably due to lacking pilot skills!

Please turn your hypocrisy dial a little bit to the left, will ya. When you open fire with a .45 gun from a distance of a few feet, directed at a person (see the video), it takes more than a slight case of chutzpah to claim that the intention was to cause no more than a slight scare. Even a lunatic knows that if you fire at a police officer at any angle, they have a right (and probably common sense as well) to indeed respond with deadly force. So in fact you are theorizing that Liko was trying to commit a suicide via "murder by the police" (there are people who attempt this, every year). If this is the case then, Liko largely succeeded in fullfilling his desire to be vented, and you should be happy for him.

It is amazing that the internet has provided a means for all concerned to do just this, so we may have community and defense against evil, and a place to quickly know and measure the needs and leaders of the common good.

I write off your use of the term "abusive" as an aplication of the ad hominem demagoguery tactics.

Now, I can't be sure of the points you made re Liko as this blog-turned-forum doesn't have the right functionality to support threads. I however deny myself and other Americans the right to not own up to our violations of the applicable laws. Committing a crime like carrying a gun w/o a license (hey Liko!) is up to one's conscience, and so is speeding with the attendant risk of getting a ticket. So is smoking pot, something that Liko also did on that fateful day. But refusing to take responsibility for one's actions is lame. It's pretty infantile to claim that NH residents should somehow be exempt from responsibility altogether, by virtue of this state having some kind of "individualistic" traditions as some wrote on this board, or that Liko in particular, being a member of an "iconic family" or a "clan", as some noted, must be absolved from his duties as a citizen. If you equate the enforcement of gun laws and traffic rules to oppression, as you do, that comes off as pretty infantile as well. You, of course, will go to a great length to dress it up as "seeking of truth" and "fight against evil". And quote Emerson in the process.

I live in NY and if I decline to stop at the police request, let's say when driving on I-495, I fully expect that there will be a chase involving possibly a few cars, spikes, possibly ramming and that if I keep behaving like a horse's arse (here's to you, Liko), and if I survive that chase, I would be subdued in a seriously rough manner, likely pepper sprayed and most certainly handcuffed. I fully expect to receive some major bruises and spend some days in jail, if I make this idiotic choice. Which I hopefully won't. Some people do, however, and sow death and destruction in their path... Like the late Mr. Kenney did. Member of a clan, dammit.

How do you know Liko owned an illegal gun? How do you know he was not defending himself or Caleb v McKay? How do you know Liko was not suffering ptsd, or some form of "combat fatigue" from altercations with McKay? At the outside, how do you know Liko was not, as Caleb has suggested, out of his mind with fear, anger, paranoia, or some combination thereof?

Your society and your laws, if they are properly applied, demand that all of these issues be taken into account by professional medical and legal experts before anyone is sentenced to jail or a mental health hospital, let alone subject to a state sanctioned private "hit" as Liko and Caleb were.

Plainly Liko was not evil. If this blog describes his personality even partially, Liko was smart, strong willed, irreverent, occasionally a "loose canon", and therefore very well known to McKay and others to respond forcefully if pressed for an unjust (evil) reason. McKay told others he thought Liko had a gun. Why? Why did McKay not seek a warrant to search for it if he was concerned about it? What kind of investigation was pursued by anyone? The only meaningful relevance Liko's pre 5-11 gun possession had was, according to blog accounts, that he was afraid of McKay. These say Liko got the gun specifically because of his McKay history. Some say Liko intended, if necessary, to kill McKay. If true, the American system still says all of this must be proved beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law before a jury of one's peers. Anything less, the Founders knew, would lead to incremental and even total usurpation of individual freedom and liberty. In other words, give oppressors an inch, they will take the proverbial mile.

You don't get this, which is very sad for you, and should be alarming to your countrymen. No one should get out of high school without understanding this very basic US Constitution principle.

McKay was a trained, decades experienced officer of our laws. He knew what he was doing when he went after Liko Kenney on 5-11; when he denied Liko's several court mandated requests for a different officer; when he rammed Liko and Caleb and maced them rather than simply follow them without incident to Tamarack and wait for backup, and resolve the alleged traffic issue. He knew Liko intimately. He knew Franconia intimately. And he decided he could break all of the normal police procedures and believed he could get away with it; ignore the best of his police education (at taxpayer expense) take matters into his own hands; to do it "his way"; his illegal and unconstitutional way, as survivor Caleb Macalay will easily prove to Franconia's municipal insurance company, costing local taxpayers millions in increased property taxes for higher town police insurance premiums over future years. This is obvious to any common sense person.

I am sorry McKay died. I hate guns. I frankly would not trust anyone like you with one either, since you so quickly judge a policeman like McKay to be legit.
But there is no sane jury on this planet that would justify how McKay handeld this case, the way he behaved toward Liko (and many others) over many years, the way NH investigated and justified Liko's death, and the way some NH pols exploited both deaths with a show funeral, defamatory speeches, outrageous lies to the press and public, and basically evil intentions toward anything the people, their constitution and their poets, would call justice. Indeed the opposite is true.

You, sadly, call this perspective "spin". I and others like me call it the truth. Apparently you canot tell the difference, which akes you a perfect candidate for new world order brainwashing, but we don't have time for that here, though it is deeply related to this discussion.

Chris has gotten to the facts, the truth, and the real issues of freedom here. Bravo for him and his friends.

Foro, you are ponce.

Consider this from a NH native who also spent some time in the NYC legal industry (since you say you're from NY).

In NYC, there was a case a few years ago where two cops came across two black men in a black neighborhood standing next to the trunk of a car, which was open. Both the men were holding big plastic bags. When the cops approached, the men dropped the plastic bags and ran away. They were later caught and the bags were found to contain drugs and money. The DA argued that these circumstances amounted to probable cause to search them. The judge, however, threw out the arrest. He said that in that neighborhood with its history of police abuse running away from the cops was an understandable reaction. That judge cared about civil rights.

In Liko Kenney's case, he was originally questioned by Mckay for sitting in his car in a parking lot. Kenney was just sitting in his car. Mckay said he was in a 'suspicious' area and that's why he was being questioned. Mckay didn't care about civil rights. Instead, he liked to roust people, scare people, harass kids.

That's the difference between your NY and NH. In NH, there's no one to keep the cops from harassing people. As a NYer, even a dopy suburban one, you'd probably have a different view on the cops if you were a black dude.

Think about it. Mckay gave Miller a $500 speeding ticket for going 80 in a 40. When's the last time someone gave YOU a $500 speeding ticket? That's a cop with a hard on, for the whole family. The police tape makes that obvious.

Any cop who can't look at that tape, and consider all the material from the case, and just say "Mckay made some serious mistakes here" isn't man or woman enough to be an officer of the law.

The AG's office is embarrassing themselves because they're trying to make the facts fit the results they want, instead of just looking dispassionately at the evidence. They were mad Mckay was killed, but instead of looking into the case and truly trying to understand it, they let Floyd off the hook within 24 hours. Instead of considering the evidence that Mckay was a prick and a small town hard on, hated by most of the people in town and known for being over-aggressive even with kids and old people - not a guy who 'deserved' to die by any means, but a guy whose actions were leading him into trouble - the AG had to go and DEFEND even his use of pepper spray and the way he used his truck to drive Kenney's car off the road.

You would have to be one fucked up cop to think that was the right way to deal with that situation.

Dig a little deeper and it's easy to start to feel sorry for Kenney. Sure, he did something unforgivable. Personally, I think he's better off being dead than living as a cop killer. But McKay was harassing him. He got off on it . This is well documented, and it's going to be better documented once this story gets covered more (as is going to happen).

I hope a lawsuit comes out of this, because the people that let cops like McKay get away with shit deserve to be punished, or at least voted out of office.
