KingCast and Popeye Doyle watch NH AG's house of cards come tumbling down on Franconia shooting tragedy evidentiary coverup.

Oh, it's Friday the 13th and over at Kelly Ayotte's house it's getting hot in the kitchen right about now. I told you they were about to get in that Lincoln and try to bale. First I will address this morning's correspondence with NH AG Homicide Chief Strelzin, who is now trying to leave everyone out of the email distribution chain except himself and me. That won't work. Then in the comments section I go on to issues of Bruce McKay's personnel file and the Fox Hill Park file with former NH AAG and Ransmeier & Spellman's Daniel Mullen.

To: Kelly.Ayotte@doj.nh.gov, Jeffery.Strelzin@doj.nh.gov, bud.fitch@dohj.nh.gov, gehi@adelphia.net, jlavely@salmonpress.com, dmullen@ranspell.com, Andrew@RightToknowNH.org....
Mr. Strelzin:

Quit trying to keep your superiors out of this loop. You're dealing with a former AAG so you know not to even insult my intelligence with that transparent attempt to insulate Kelly from liability. I put her and others right back in the distribution chain every time.

You have NOT fully responded to my inquiry because you ignored this:

a) an inventory report AND
b) the notes of the officers who viewed the Floyd
vehicle.


........So to be clear, are you telling me there were no contemporaneous or subsequent notes made about Floyd's vehicle? You know you've got a sociopath on your hands like Gregory Floyd who just shot a man dead and threatened one of your officers ("son, I'm quicker'n you") and whom the Easton Chief of Police was worried about but you don't take any notes regarding what's in his car?

http://christopher-king.blogspot.com/2007/07/kingcast-says-hey-kelly-heres-your-hero.html

Easton Police Chief Robery Every from your own files (that will be part of the lawsuit to be made public)
"All of us have made mistakes in our lives; in Mr. Floyd's case the behavior extends beyond a mistake; there is a pattern, a pattern of past violence, paranoid behavior and excessive anger. While no one can predict the future, I feel Mr. Floyd is capable of showing up at Lafayette Elementary School or at a neighbor's house with an automatic weapon..."


****************

And you ignored this:

II: John P's request to have the State place all evidentiary materials on line.

By the way, have you responded to his request yet? Your office is contemptably, and suspiciously late on that.

http://christopher-king.blogspot.com/2007/07/nh-ag-kelly-ayotte-backed-into-corner.html

...........Should I just add it to the litigation hopper that will likely include the recent request for any and all procedure and protocol for homicide investigations involving civilian and/or Law Enforcement personnel.

Attorney Mullen has responded to Fox Hill and requested 45 days but I'm hereby putting him on Actual Notice that I want whatever they've got RIGHT NOW, and if more is uncovered then they can supplement; I'll allow that certainly because I'm a nice, reasonable man.

Along with the redaction stunts I've seen from your files we're in for a rockin' time at oral argument, Counselor.

I'm up for it.

Are you?

Lastly, I'm also in receipt of the email from Reconciliation member Gary Harwood to your office in which he directly tells you that your investigation is bogus. That will be printed in the comments section to my next blawg entry and will be made part of the file when I get ready to sue for Bruce McKay's personnel file.

Are we clear?

Very truly yours,

Christopher King, J.D.

Mr. King:

In response to your requests:

I. The vehicle inventory of Gregory Floyd.

All of the materials in our possession regarding the search of the Floyd truck have been provided. There are no evidence examination forms ("inventory" forms) because no items of evidentiary value were discovered and seized during the search.

III. Fox Hill Park police information.

All of the materials in our possession regarding the 2003 arrest of Liko Kenney in Franconia have been provided.

On to Attorney Mullen

***************

I just received a letter from Ransmeier & Spellman's Daniel Mullen in which he stands by the denial of Bruce McKay's personnel file per RSA 91-A:5. That matter will visit the Court, with various other matters working their way through the AG's office as noted in yesterday's Popeye Doyle Post #2.

I will scan his letter later this morning, but be advised of this regarding the three (3) items addressed in it:

1. There will be litigation on the McKay personnel file based on existing case law and public policy.

2. Tim Stevenson's [sic] it's Stephenson's arrest file "appears to be extensive." Oh, you bet it is, and much of it is BS from Bruce McKay. Anyway, a bill of costs will be generated but no time frame was given, in violation of RSA 91-A which requires a time frame. Duh.

3. On the Fox Hill Park request for documents, Attorney Mullen totally distorts what Chief Montminy wrote to KingCast. Montminy said this: Dear Mr. King;

I am in receipt of your request for records concerning Fox Hill Park for the past 10 years and/or longer. This will take some time and will involve overtime cost to have an officer research this request.

If you would like to proceed with this, please let me know if you are willing to cover the expenses.

Thank you,
Chief Mark Montminy


Now all of a sudden, it's as if Montminy was not trying to charge me overtime but rather that it would take more than 5 days, although it is obvious that Montminy never gave me any sort of clarification on a timeframe as required by law. Now they finally tell me it will take approximately 45 days to assemble the information. I look forward to knowing what possibly could have been going on in Fox Hill Park that the neighbors didn't know about but as noted above, I'm not waiting for 45 days to sue because I'll simply note that I asked for whatever they DO have right now and the right to supplement within a reasonable time frame.

The email from a Franconia insider, as sent to NH AG s Kelly Ayotte, Jeffery Strelzin and others.

The original message showed up in my e-mail this morning and I am really not sure why or how it ended up here. However I will take the opportunity to respond.

As a very concerned, long time resident who just moved back to Easton . I am keenly aware of the substantial discrepancies of the state’s official version of the events of May 11, what appears to have actually taken place , as well as what appears to be a limited and selective investigation . A couple of things that first come to mind include the fact, that Pat Tillman was not killed by enemy fire and that the Duke Lacrosse players were innocent of the charges that threatened to ruin their lives. It did take a period of time but the truth did finally emerge.

Transparency in our governmental process is as critical in our society as well as respect for our laws and those friends and neighbors who enforce our laws. There is no condoning the actions of Kenney that afternoon but there is also no condoning the actions of Officer McKay in what was clearly not a “routine” traffic stop. I respect and sincerely appreciate the work and dangerous job of the law enforcement and safety personnel community . However , we all have known some officers we felt did not deserve any respect and you wonder what they are doing in such a position of trust. Sometimes the actions of these types of people have deadly results, sometimes they result in a drunken hit and run, and we all know the list can go on. Some members of the law enforcement community are not immune to the same failings of the rest of this society, although we expect it, and we often expect it for less than $20 an hour. Well it is not always going to happen.

Perhaps not by chance, last night I watched the classic Mel Brooks movie.” World History Part 1”. This movie stars Mel Brooks as the “King” during the French Revolution. At various times, as the Ruler , he is physically taking advantage of some of the young ladies in his service, looks directly at the camera , smirks and says “It’s good to be King”. Publicly, the Attorney General’s Office appears to acting like the King. We have made the decision and what are you going to do about.it.

Some of the reports in the papers of this shooting should be more accurately labeled “ repeats “, as they continue to repeat the state’s official version . This version relies heavily on statements from an individual who in the not so recent past was characterized as dangerous and threatening to the law enforcement community.. There is also a past charge from the former Police Chief of the Town of Easton, that Gregory Floyd was someone who was capable of taking an automatic weapon into the local elementary school. If the facts have shown this guy truly was a “hero”, publicly honor him and give him the accolades he deserves.

If we want to limit the chances of a repeat of this incident anywhere in this state, an honest and accurate accounting is required.

Regards....

Isn't it?

We all have our positions and skills but coming together, right here through the Internet, that's what's truly special.

Apparently Nashua Schools Superintendent Chris Hottel has had enough:

Dear Chris:

Namaste.

Now I want to make it clear that I have never had a bad word to say about Mr Hottel (who is also a Yoga practitioner) and a word search of his name on this blawg will support that, even though we disagreed on the speech issue on which the First Amendment ultimately prevailed, with some help from Alderman Teeboom and me.

I wrote that Hottel is an earnest individual....

I just wish he wouldn't go away when it's just starting to get Good.

Mr. King:

In response to your inquiries:

1. The vehicle inventory of Gregory Floyd.

All of the materials in our possession regarding the search of the Floyd truck have been provided. There are no "notes of the officers who viewed the Floyd vehicle."

........KingCast says they will have some time to reflect on what they saw before they have to answer that question before a Court reporter.


2. John P's request to have the State place all evidentiary materials on line.

We have responded to him regarding his inquires.

.....KingCast is emailing John. P to see what that response was, exactly, and when it was finally sent.

Namaste.

When I drop the hammer on these guys I'm going to go deep into public policy and list each and every material contradiction noted in this post:


Here then is the latest between Attorney Strelzin and me. You can tell he's tweakin' big time, no salutations toward me or whatever.

FACT: Kelly and I both live in Nashua.

FACT: My new neighbors are friends with her and we watched the fireworks together.

FACT: Their nephew knows many of the key players in this story.

FACT: They thought the stop from McKay was ridiculous and believe there is more to this than meets the eye.

FACT: They said about the efforts to make documentation available and to make government transparent:

"They've never been pushed like this before."

Well they have been now, to quote the eyewitness report about the Tahoe Slam:

"....dirt flew back the police car pushed him so strongly and just kept pushing and pushing and pushing until the grey car was beyond my view."

Well that's almost as hard as the push that they're going to get from me, you bet.

This is very true, Chris. One cannot help but wonder exactly what are all of these media sources doing with the records that they received? They are only repeating the original story and not putting very newsworthy information in the media.

Christopher King said...

Debby, note that I didn't write that about the repeats.

It came from a Franconia insider who wrote those unpublished letters to Tom Fahey at the Union Leader.

something's buggin' me...
watched the vid again just now...after the first stop, Liko waits two minutes or so, then takes off SLOWLY, not speeding, toward Tamarack, and what he believed would be safety and witnesses...
Mckay KNEW where Tamarack was; Mckay KNEW where Liko lived, Mckay KNEW where Liko was going...Mckay had CALLED backup...there was NOWHERE for Liko to run, AND HE WASN'T Running anyway!!!!

so Mckay waits a few seconds, several seconds, around two to four or five, before beginning pursuit...
(perhaps making a radio or some other kind of call, but the audio is somehow missing)...
so Mckay pulls out slowly, carefully, safely, not high speed...and STILL, factoring in he's starting from a dead stop...and not speeding furiously (observable thru the cop cam, the background on both sides isn't whirring by...and you can see the hood and the car and the oncoming cars etc...)
and STILL it takes less than ten seconds, about 8 seconds, before the little Toyota is visible...Liko was highly concerned, did not want a speeding violation, did not want to instigate a high speed chase...he was NOT running...he was driving carefully, moderately toward home and witnesses...
NOT speeding away for his dear life...unfortunately...

there would have been kenney and miller family members, adult mature citizens with a hundred years of non violent history right here in Easton...
...and probably some workers, clients and public there too, of course...

so Mckay SEES all of this clearly...you can see it on the vid...8 seconds from a dead stop, and pulling into the road by Mckay...and Liko is almost immediately visible...NOT Running...NOT speeding away...NOT wanting to escalate the situation or trigger mckay...
...
...oncoming traffic is visible for a bit, true, but not at first...and only when Liko is within a few hundred feet of Tamarack...Mckay puts the pedal to the metal...you can see this speed up clearly in the video also...Mckay passes him, and Liko stops in the road...Liko waves him on with two fingers motioning forward toward Tamarack...where Mckay ALREADY KNOWS Liko is heading...
still, he (Mckay) sped up like mad, passed Liko and blocks the road...
Liko dosen't try any smartass maneuvers...
he should have i guess...
he should have sped like a mf'er...because that would have saved two lives...

but Liko was trying to not escalate things with this guy, who had already proven himself, face it, a steady and continuous antagonist, not to mention the beat down in '03...
...ok?
so...what was the bug up the officer's butt that had him speeding up, passing Liko; seeing Liko's hand signals (and KNOWING that Liko had been given the right to call a witnessing officer to the scene, should Mckay confront him again)...
...Mckay sees the hand signals...clearly...
... and subsequent frustration in Liko, but still sees Liko comply and back up into the yard next to Mackenzie's home...
(Liko STILL at this point, could have made an evasive move as the tahoe approached...Liko could have slid by either side of that telephone pole to safety...depending on however Mckay decided to approach...)
instead he complied...bad move...instead he signaled a passerby to please stay and witness...only it was murderers floyd and accomplice floyd jr...
...ohboy...
Liko feared another attack and that's exactly what happened...

...so put yourself in mckay's position...i won't say put yourself inside of his mind, just put yourself in mckays POSITION...
WHY the absolute imperative to stop him, and ram him repeatedly, when a full arrest and reckoning was a few seconds away at Tamarack...? an entire squadron of police vehicles could have arrived at Tamarack safely, with everyone alive and no one hurt...Mckay did not know this??? of course he did...
but that was not his game apparently...
Mckay was not only looking for trouble and needless confrontation; he was forcing it, begging for it...and you can see his last closeup; all of a sudden the audio works!! the siren screams...out pops Mckay...Liko's window is up and he is communicating with Mckay...(after the ramming, and after Liko shows him two empty open hands pleading with him to stop...and also demonstrating supplication)

now don't go tell me i'm imagining supplication...two open empty hands being displayed purposefully and directly at Mckay is more than an implication....

Liko's window is open...he is communicating with Mckay, talking, gesturing...but Mckay is into the show now...and presto quick out comes a direct stream, like a high pressure water hose, (which is not how the chemical is supposed to be applied for maxium efficiency, and correct usage) right into Liko's face/head area...
Mckay looks satisfied and cocky...but hastens out of frame...
the dead audio now full on for the shots, but then the audio stops completely again
after Mckay is out of frame...you hear a gasp...
it's awful, yes...
but we don't get to hear, or see, anything else...YET that is...got that kelly?
YET...thass right honey...YET...
better start telling the truth or changing your story in a hurry now girl...

...the autopsy reports and pictures must be seen by professional neutral witnesses to tell the rest of the story at this point...

the corrupted evidence must be removed from the AG office and put into serious neutral top forensic analysis...
even without tho, i rather think the AG office will be surprised at the plethora of factual evidentiary materials and testimony that are to come...

they (AG ayotte and her asst. strezlin, THOUGHT they had every essential 'i' dotted and every 't' crossed)...
guess what?

i mis-stated something; sorry; Liko's window was DOWN and OPEN when he was talking to Mckay and hand gesturing as Mckay approached...i had written the window was up...
the window was CLEARLY DOWN AND OPEN, sorry to mis-speak, it's very clear in the video...
...Liko was communicating, after being violently & repeatedly rammed, needlessly stopped...Liko's window was DOWN and OPEN...
Liko did not shoot Mckay there and then and easily could have...Liko did EVERYTHING he could to avoid this violent confrontation that he feared so very much...and to reason with Mckay in a rational, even respectful manner...
Mckay was having none of it...
he had a plan...and it involved a little mace discipline, (as was his hugely wide reputation for violence and other unseemly activities,

including, of course, smashing Liko in the face after allegedly being 'grabbed' as Liko pushed Mckay's alleged groin out of his alleged FACE, in the midst of a beat-down and shackling, after Liko pointedly expressed concerns about being raped)

but that was then...
this is now...

Mckay's violence and unprofessinal behavior has been, can be, and will again be verified again and again, in other traffic stops, public schools etc...

so excuse me for mis-stating the window position in the previous post...
Liko's window was Down and Open...his empty hand was out of the car, he was talking to Mckay...as Mckay approached quickly for the sucker punch direct face mace job...
a copkiller would have just killed the cop...
Liko did everything he could to avoid this violent double tragedy...
anybody can shoot anybody else...that was not Liko's game...that was not in his heart...
he got pushed, rammed, effed with for years than sucker attacked directly in the face after trying several techniques to deescalte Mckay's madness...the rest was instinct...IMO

a-muss,
excellent narrative, with which i fully concur. i have previously attempted, with more of an overview, to state the same observations, again and again.
i do not believe liko would, otherwise, matter to folks of differing backgrounds and ages if he were not the "light" he has revealed to all of us, and has become. i hope m.a. will please forgive if this is not the rhetoric he wants to hear, and that i may be repetitious. this is my truth; that liko could have been anyone's son, just trying to get home.

my husband cares about this story, my elderly mother cares about this story....and it is important to tell. it matters.

i am wondering about the history of the franconia police department. is the chief from the area? are there positive stories to reveal about the overall presence of other officers? prior to mckay's arrival, was there a different mission or emphasis to law enforcement?

i've missed commenting on some of debby's excellent posts lately, so i thank you now, my friend.

This is not speculation or heresay but is in Liko Kenney's statement as to what happened in 03.
