Franconia Collective and KingCast present Press Release #1 in Franconia shooting tragedy.

For Immediate Release

July 26 2007:

Franconia, NH


Liko Kenney's parents make no formal statement on this matter and have their own counsel. We are all closely associated with Liko and the family and some of us have written other editorials that have appeared in the Concord Monitor requesting government assistance for Franconia to help us heal. But before we can heal we need access to the Truth.

And the Truth is that Liko Kenney was correct in his 2003 case when he told Corporal Bruce McKay that the government "could not keep [him] there without Good Cause," because we now know that other charges at the same time involving the same park were dismissed as Unconstitutional by a Court Order in State v. Wright, 03-CR-0019. Liko's underlying charges were dismissed as well after the same lawyer filed an identical Motion to Suppress in Liko's case. And as of today by a Concord Monitor piece written by Annmarie Timmins, we are aware that the Franconia PD and Chief Montminy did NOT file a use of force report in Liko’s Fox Hill case although force was obviously used and McKay audibly notes in the video that there will likely be a citizen complaint after he and two other officers, believed to be Dick and Cox, took Liko down behind his mother’s car and out of view from the cruiser-cam.

The Truth is that our Government has intentionally withheld that information to make everything appear to be Liko's fault.

Two men lost their lives in Franconia two months ago, but the cancer that killed them has metastasized and is still running rampant in our culture. For years people have complained of Bruce McKay and ABC News even quoted a woman who attempted to save his life as saying "heck, even I was scared of him" and that people did not trust him and that complaints had been made to the Franconia Selectmen and the Police Chief but that nothing had been done.

We have seen notice from a local attorney that he complained of McKay being unethical in the courtroom as well, and we anticipate the State will provide a copy of that complaint and its response to it. We are certain that there are more and in fact we now know that Tim Stephenson filed a complaint with NH AG Kelly Ayotte's office in 2004 that was rejected in a one-sentence response.

While we do not wish to absolve Liko of any wrongdoing in this matter, he certainly was pushed against a wall figuratively since 2003 and against a bulldozer literally before he snapped, after Bruce McKay maced him as if he were some kind of animal and walked away with no directive or command.

Even today as we try to piece things together we find the Selectmen are up to their old games, withholding the 150 Reconciliation responses and holding last minute public meetings about the tragedy that are not publicized.

For the Truth of this matter and the ability to freely discuss it without having our posts stricken we have had but one resource and that is Christopher King's First Amendment Page, which one may access through his movie site KingCast.net at the blog button. We support his attempts to gather public information from public agencies including an Action in Mandamus if necessary to set the record straight. This is our way of using the Internet and the First Amendment to Petition our Government for redress.

Many of us tried to participate in the WMUR forums but found that our posts were not aired for some reason. But at least now we have come together with our quest for the Truth and a unified mission to air that truth through multimedia, including the " Franconia 5/11" film project. And we will work for ongoing and positive change in the communities by pushing for programs and legislative initiative similar to HB 58, urging that citizens have a more proactive role in the oversight of hiring, firing and retention of police officers.

And they never issued a use of force report for the 2003 incident because then you would have a Court finding of Unconstitutional stops and seizures combined with potentially unlawful use of force. That makes your municipal insurance rate go up, your bond rating goes down and all of that, dontcha' know.

And it just looks bad. But not as bad as two dead men in the middle of 116.

After the possession charges were droopped Liko did not want to plead but he was forced into it by his new lawyer, who did not draft the Motions that resulted in Judge Cyr's findings.

His new lawyer is now a Judge.

More on this later.

Charles Duffy said...

Thanks Ck, Most people don't have a clue when a town get's a lawsuit. Their insurance companies lawyers are part of the legal team.

When the town looses the rates go up like on your car.

Most people don't know this.

Maybe we should talk about corupion in the insurance business.

Off line, Ive got the best story on Liberty Mutual.

Christopher King said...

Right Duffy.

But the main thing even beyond the increased insurance premiums and all that is:

And it just looks bad. But not as bad as two dead men in the middle of 116.

Shame on Montminy and shame on the Selectmen. I said a long time ago that the blood of Liko Kenney and Bruce McKay was going to roil over their souls, and now that we know about:

a) the Constitutional violation findings by Judge Cyr and;

b) the absence of any use of force complaints from Liko's 2003 arrest....

That is all the more obvious.

To whom it may concern,

I am tired and over this game you play. I have gone back through several posts and have found different named posters throughout, that start out in the same exact theme and end up in the same place..over and over again. Same manner of expression, same words and it is becoming extremely boring.

You have a right to your own opinions and thoughts but this constant manner of getting someone to engage with you so that you can grasp on to anything that you can attempt to discredit the poster is abusive and deceptive.

Don't talk to us about character, truth, honesty, pure intent or any other trait that is to be held in high esteem. You are a phonie and a fake.

I hope I spot you sooner next time you throw us a new name so I don't waste my time.

Knock it off.

Charles Duffy said...

With a name like sally O'malley it better be good.

It sounds like you are Mother Smucker's.


This is is about people who have been fucked buy (Your best buy system of purchase)

We here do not have the time or coupons for your Jam on sale at best buy.

Wake up

Christopher King said...

Charlie,

Sally is okay by me I think.

Read it again.

Peace.

sally said...

sally o'malley,

Charles, the person this is for knows it and it is not you. I have always been your friend.

I am tired of this same person coming on posing and lying to us (you,me and the rest)

i posted it on every blog so that individual does not miss it.

Charles Duffy said...

I hit your blog when I can.

It didn't sound right to me. I apologize.
If it was off track you may know already Im a left hander.

Sorry Sally, Now I understand she wasn't criticizing you but other comments.

Give me the chalk board and I write with my right. Just so the chalk dust doesn't get on my arm.

He isn't new....same player fine tuning his twisted game. Meet us in a dark alley, buddy and we'll tune your *** up, but good. You won't though, you will just hide out for awhile and come back with an initial new tale and new name. You have always been outed and you will again. You always end up in the same place. Stick your tail between your legs and travel on, mister.

One thing we can say of Liko is that he wasn't a coward or a liar. He holds greater rank than you even if he did kill a cop. Get over yourself and your ridiculous games.

skylune said...

Wow. You folks are excellent detectives.

I guess expressing any sentiment that Kenney is anything other than a martyr for justice, and Mr. King is a knight in shining armor will not be tolerated.

Gotcha.

Have fun speculating and deluding yourselves that anything here is anything more than pure entertainment.

;-)

Christopher King said...

Nah, Skylune unlike at WMUR you are free to say whatever you want here and it will be posted here.

But when you start issuing personal diatribes against me or anyone else, here, just be ready to back it up or to identify yourself or agree to look me in the eye at oral argument and talk that trash.

Sound fair?

If not, why not?

mckays record was released (partially...but still enough to make show a tremendous light on the true nature of his unprofessionalism and overt criminality)
ayotte is now pointing to monti and the fpd for disclosure, monti lawyers up with the 'dog ate my homework' defense about overtly missing reports (still missing!)...fpd lawyer goes on to suggest that their 'hero' mckay maybe 'forgot' to file the proper paperwork! (ha, i really love that one...the ag blames the police chief, the police chief blames the dead rogue via the lawyer)...
they are in disarray, and like the other true rats of their ilk, are now blaming each other, ducking for cover, red faced and strictly in 'damage control' mode, and they can't do that with any more cohesion than their 'investigation' or 'report'...
..."legit" publications are picking this up, and will continue to hugely...
scattered light here and there every day now as the corruption and lies crumble...and trolls would have you think that the excellent work done here by caring citizen activists is nothing other than target for ridicule...
...this is the price one pays for an entirely and completely open forum...
...it's instructive to see the childish taunting hate in action...is it not?

...instructive for folks to see one hater puffing up and raging out, at first railing against ayotte to draw the uninitiated and the unsuspecting in...then going on an agenda of ridicule and intentional obfuscation...
interesting illustration of the duplicity and moral vacancy that keeps communities unsafe and encourages lies...
...no matter...if u r new, please read the blog in context, see the facts disclosed weeks and months before the subpoenas are issued and the info comes dripping in...and starts being publicized widely....

...they are in wild fear now...and all they can muster is one foolish and obvious troll on a free and open blog on the web...
pretty pathetic...
watch your backs people...
they are trapped and they know it...they have left an evidence trail ten miles wide and they are going to panic...
...the contemptuous and lying AG report has been exposed, proving obstruction of justice and evidence tampering and other high crimes... and critical mass will hit the culture hard...
...they can't stop it...nobody can now...
this blog has been of great foundational importance...and the media outlets are following up on the good and righteous questions being asked here, and answered here...
there is a genesis and evolution to these kind of things...they are slowly coming out of denial and into shock...and it's a wonderful thing to see...
...trolls troll. i wont' roll around in the mud with this enemy of truth and justice; the duplicity of intention and the sloppy, careless and juvenile results mean nada in the progression of these actual issues and disclosures....

but it is interesting to note that this troll appears especially when the 'officials' have just taken a powerful truth hit in the general media and conciousness...and the smokescreen tactics start anew...
...it's business..it's a technique, it's a calculation, and to some extent it's healthy, because this serves as a civic lession in the active dirty truth squad swift boat mentality that appears to mock truth and distract...

reminds me of all those hypocrits at the republican convention wearing bandaids and showing their 'purple fingers'...at once ridiculing a war veteran injured in service, and also promoting the 'new democracy' in iraq...(!!!!!! we sure see a lot of democracy in iraq every day huh?)
...no matter what the truth is...they got thousands of people to get a cheap laugh and have a second on tv in solidarity with other nincompoops who didn't mind discracing their own service people and their own country with lies and ridicule...
...i attempt to see this trollery in context...and invite you to do the same...

i won't even personalize or legitimize or bother with this ill conceived and shallow (and regular) routine...
point is...
WOW, look what got released this week!!!
holy mother of God...
there has been an exponential shift...a huge crack in the 'official' facade...and it is delicious to watch them start to duck for cover and blame each other as careers start to fall...as careers start to drop right out of the skyline into a field of foul smelling debris...
dee-lish-us...
and when that happens...
and it will happen more and more frequently now...
the distractors come here en masse...
it's just a blog...why don't they write their own blogs or write the news outlets etc...??
we are just a blog...nothing to get so upset about right? so why are they here, again and again...
it shows tremendous fear and tremendous movement in the sake of truth...and i personally will not allow it to distract me, and it reminds me of how much respect i have for the citizen journalists on this board, working for NOTHING but the good of their own communities and the truth...against great odds...AND WINNING EVERY ROUND...
if this blog folds tomorrow, they can't stop it...
the info printed here starting last May will find it's way to national magazines, books by major publishers, all the major press syndicates, television, radio and print...
and the idiot trolls will be an interesting sidelight story all in itself, as it is picture perfect smokescreen distraction rovian atwater goodling ayotte benson political technique...
it directly represents the hatred for truth and law that the more publically exposed criminals in politics and le revel in...
...and does them no service, and does us great opportunity to continue to move things along proactively and with great effect...
i don't take the bait anymore...it means nothing other than an illustration of how desperate they are...

wow, the hammers dropping, you can almost hear the air itself move out of the way...
skythud forro von goebbels, light beings, archangel michael channelers...whoo boy, and that's only a small handful of the personae...
and none of it works.
so let's move on; we haven't lost a round or missed a beat...
they are reduced to criticising photoshopped pix that were grabbed from other sites on the net, and published here for your inspection...
...they (he/she) can't seem to make one point, stand on it, and prove it...
so...we get the abbot and costello stuff...

Lisa,

No Way. I have been trying to find you forever. Miss you badly. What made you find this blawg? I gotta' get back to Columbus for a minute. I'll holler off line =^.)

Boston Magazine story:

As you read it, be aware that John was at the time unaware of the missing police and use-of-force reports as noted in Today's letter to Franconia Town Attorney Daniel Mullen.

Unlike Massachusetts, New Hampshire does not have district attorneys, and relies on police prosecutors to pursue guilty verdicts in minor crimes. To earn extra money, McKay filled that position for the town. Sometimes, when trying a suspect he’d arrested, he’d put himself on the stand to present the evidence. “I always thought he was a fascist,” says Jean McLean. That impression wasn’t eased by the Hitler mustache—a dab of dark hair right under his nose—McKay wore for a time, or the GOTCHA vanity plate on his Nissan 4x4.

With such a profile, McKay attracted a lot of talk in Franconia, little of it flattering. Once, it was said, he pulled over a 79-year-old woman for an expired registration sticker. After she tried to explain that she was heading home to cook dinner for her husband, he made her wait in the car for two hours. When McKay discovered a group of kids celebrating their high school graduation by frolicking along the river, he had every one of their cars towed. He’d even threatened to ticket a man for driving his riding mower across the road. McKay’s targets rarely filed complaints, though. “People feared retribution,” says Roland Shick, an antiques dealer in nearby Bethlehem. “They were afraid McKay would attack their kids, or themselves.”


"Connie McKenzie, who works as a nurse, arrived next and performed CPR on McKay until the EMTs took over. She says she wanted to check on Kenney, too, but was ordered not to. “I thought someone should at least take his pulse,” she says.

Bill Kenney is among those who theorize that Floyd was an informal backup for McKay, operating on a kind of buddy system. The two lived not far apart, and seemed to share a similar outlook on the world. Floyd refuses to speak to the press, but some in Franconia also speculate that he kept a police scanner, which would have let him track McKay’s movements. In any event, in his role in the bloody events on Route 116, he outdid the slain cop-cum-prosecutor. For Liko Kenney, Gregory W. Floyd served as judge, jury, and executioner."

John also did not have the full media kit from the AG's office that I have, which shows according to Floyd Jr. and Caleb Macaulay that Liko did NOT strike McKay twice with the car, so he wrote this:

"Kenney revved his car forward, striking the officer. Then he backed up and drove at McKay again, this time plowing the front end of the Celica up over McKay’s torso."

sam said...

I don't know much about this case. . . I was shocked when I stumbled upon it. Regardless, do I need to know ANYTHING about it other than the basics, to say this: Is it EVER okay to kill someone when you are NOT in clear and present mortal danger? No. There is absolutely NO argument. No matter how much bad blood and rage you have, you can NEVER kill another person. . . You gotta suck it up and work things out maturely. If not, then you have to just get out. If justice isn't being served, then seek it elsewhere.
I'm not sure if anyone has the idiocy or is ignorant enough to defend Liko Kenney because I haven't bothered to read the entire post and replies; nevertheless, I sure as hell hope not.

Basically, and I'm not saying anyone is, one can rant on and on about how unfair something is. . . But one can simply never justify cold blooded murder with "bad blood" or "cornered-animal syndrome". . . Wake up.

Liko was in the right. Fuck that pig. That cop was a piece of shit and had no right to treat him like that. I'm so glad he killed him because McKay can't harass other innocent people!

Liko Kenney is a hero!!!!

Anonymous said...

@ The topic of the 2003 incident: How is this even a potential unlawful use of force? Liko was clearly resisting arrest allowing officers to use reasonable means to contain him and keep him from hurting them or himself. Mostly in order to prevent an incident like the event that took place in 2007. How is the officer supposed to know whether or not you're a danger to him? They will never know. That's why it's important to contain the situation.

While on cam Liko constantly screams about how he's being tortured. True we can't see him behind his mother's vehicle, however when in the backseat of the officer's vehicle he keeps the claim of actively being tortured.

Had Liko acted in a professional manner and stayed in the car, listened to the officers original reason for running his ID. The event would have been completed in due time and everyone would have been on their way. Instead he chose to verbally fight with officers and as such was arrested.

@ The topic of the 2007 incident:
It's never justified to murder someone when your life is not in immediate danger or to protect another. Period.

Christopher King said...

You need to learn the law. It was an unlawful arrest because there was no probable cause to continue to detain Liko in the first place.

You need to read this post, which has links to the other cases from the same time period that Judge Cyr (a real hard ass who grants no knock raid applications) threw out on Constitutional grounds.

I pulled these from the Littleton Courthouse myself but no other major media wants to talk about that.
