30 March 2008 update now that KingCast won the Right-to-Know case, Grafton 07-E-268Second is Policy D: Pursuit Tactics:
(4) Officers may not intentionally use their vehicle to bump or ram the suspect's vehicle in order to force the vehicle to stop or to be pushed into a ditch.
Pursuit shall be immediately terminated in any of the following circumstances:
(E) The suspects identity has been established to the point that later apprehension can be accomplished, and there is no longer any need for immediate apprehension.
What part of that did McKay not understand? Over a damn inspection sticker? Something in the water does not compute. I hate this guy -- he also violated the OC Spray policies and then he died.
Anyone with half a brain, including Publisher McQuaid, can clearly see that Liko was trying to avoid a direct confrontation with Bruce McKay and to get some witnesses against a dirty cop.
But no analysis of any of that, instead we celebrate a known felon who has been blatantly disrespectful to police for killing a cop killer. Spare me the nonsense and shame on you, Attorney Ayotte.
Just the law.
Whew, busy day, eating sushi and stuff at Minado over in Natick, and watching Molly Shannon show off a whole lot of leg on "The View," appropriately enough. As noted in today's story, I relate to her being such a character because actually we both are really kind of shy. I haven't seen her since the late 80's a while after high school, but Molly honey you're looking damn fine love you always.
