I am narrowing the issues here and couching them in one email chain for clarity but first I'm going to set just a few things straight:
1. The only person who claims that Liko ran into McKay while standing -- or even AT ALL before Floyd fired a shot at Liko -- is Floyd, the same man who said he was involved in Viet Nam era activities and who Easton Police Chief Robert Every thought was an imminent threat to society. To wit:
"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 that the
danger to the public safety far outweighs the minimal intrusion a check of his premises for automatic weapons would represent."
Even Floyd's son was very explicit at p. 745 of his statement in noting that Liko did not run McKay over the first time, i.e. "Floyd Junior notes that Liko "didn't actually hit the officer" the first time." Caleb Macaulay's statement was similar in that regard.
2. It is painfully evident that Floyd lied about reaching into the window and about saying anything before he shot. Caleb said he didn't, and Floyd Junior's testimony is entirely sketchy.....[ snip]
