"....as I've said too often, i never knew him, i couldn't make it to the funeral, but i know that kid was born to make a difference in this world."
Exactly. As I noted in the Boston Magazine John Sedgwick post, you know it when you feel it, and from the moment I heard about this case I knew it was going to be a BS fiasco from the State, especially when Kelly waited 6 weeks to produce the 2007 video, never told me when the "investigation" was complete, never signed her own "Official Report" and still can't tell me from where the windshield bullet was "recovered."
And to someone I just met via an introduction from some folks at Nashua City Hall:
"And get people ready to write a letter to include for the public policy portion of the Mandamus Action because you better believe it's coming. I just woke up again from a little nap in tears because of the brother I never met. And I used to wake up in tears from that bullshit that Kelly Ayotte and Chief Dunn put me through, so it's ON."
A selectman from NH Taxpayer radio agreed.
"As a former selectman who has interviewed about 25 applicants for police jobs, hired and fired police as well, I think I can say with some small amount of authority that this "investigation" and the reporting on it stinks. That night when I saw Ayotte being interviewed on the "news" and they said the press were being kept two miles away from the incident, I knew it had to be something like this."
Some folks want to come in here and hate on the messenger but instead would do better to read the fact pattern on the pending Mandamus Action. Sure I love the silly stuff (watch the first "Progressions Lounge" video -- case in point) but at bottom it's all about the Law.
Years ago Martha told me "You are destined to do great things with law in an entertaining manner." She should know; she was my buddy for much of the Columbus BS and she's the person who introduced me to Mary Jo Kilroy, seen as Columbus School Board President with a nasty gavel in this Justiceforkids video -- edited so that we also see NH Hillsborough Superior Chief Justice note that KingCast cameras have the right to be in the courtroom because "it's no different than WMUR" he actually says later.
It's about folks like Liko and Mother Ann who have the Original Spirit.
I'm just the not-so-humble narrator, imperfect as anyone else but damn right about this case. And Martha was right.
