Franconia Recovery and Reconciliation Committee member supports KingCast Right-to-Know litigation and blasts Defendant Kelly Ayotte's investigation.

My mole was right and the email from Gary Harwood, sent by and through Executive Councilor Raymond S. Burton and cc'd to Senator John Gallus was delivered to my desk at work this morning from one of Jeffery Strelzin's friends who lives above Concord :)

I'll be scanning the email tonight with Oliver (Liko's friend from the short film "Franconia 5/11: Injustice on Stilts") when he gets here while we strategize our next moves but for now here's the portion I have time to print: the real question continues to be the apparent whitewash of the facts, the blatant discrepancies in the statements of Gregory Floyd and his role in this tragedy.
I am disappointed that thepublic face of the law enforcement community appears to continue to condone and support the actions of Officer McKay in this tragedy.

It still appears the Attorney General and her colleagues, in their haste to provide a save haven for someone who reportedly killed a cop killer, left a dangerous residue, that will undoubtedly erupt again at some time in the future. I am attaching a copy of some paperwork that was available online that refers to Gregory Floyd’s past conviction in Georgia for PCP. I have also provided an information sheet from the National Institute of Drug Abuse that summarizes the dangers to a user of this drug. It is well known that PCP is often sprinkled on marijuana and then smoked.

On information and belief, Mr. Harwood also wrote this email to Union Leader State reporter Tom Fahey, as well as this follow up, where you can read the lawsuit and see that the local papers closest to this case have afforded coverage to the pending lawsuit.
Tom,

I just got a copy of an e-mail from Chris King that he sent to you. I am pretty sure he picked up my messages to the AG’s office that were less than complimentary re their investigation. However I have been following his blog since May and it seems he is the only one in the print and electronic media , with any brass to go after the real story.

As a former editor of a statewide weekly (Ohio Call & Post), and reporter at a large metropolitan daily (Indy Star) I am wondering when Kevin Landrigan from the Nashua Telegraph or Tom Fahey from the Union Leader or the Concord Monitor are going to cover the pending Right-to-Know lawsuit of KingCast v. NH AG Kelly Ayotte et al, Grafton County 07-E-268.

Tell me Chris, what truth are you going after? Tell me why it matters that Floyd had a criminal record and did drugs. So did Liko. What is the truth you are searching for? What is the cover up? A man was shot repeatedly and then another man was shot while he reloaded his gun to shoot the next cop. What is so unclear about that? Please enlighten me.

Well I'm glad you asked!

If you want enlightenment start with the lawsuit.

Then watch the movie.

Please don't liken Liko's smoking marijuana (he was very anti-synthesized drugs, BTW) with distributing PCP like Gregory Floyd.

How about the fact that Floyd lied about his criminal background involving drugs far and beyond marijuana that Liko does NOT have, and that lying in an investigation is a crime in and of itself, according to Peter Heed when he busted the Catholic Diocese for lying.

How about the fact that Floyd was not unarmed when Liko struck McKay with the car as Kelly claimed at p. 42 of the official report.

How about the fact that Floyd did not speak to Liko as he claimed he did, prior to shooting him, as corroborated by Floyd himself at p. 20 of his statement and by Caleb Macaulay in his statement, only contradicted later by Floyd when he realized he had to make it sound right.

How about the fact that there is no analysis of the entry bullet hole in Liko's windshield where there is analysis of the bullet holes in McKenzie's barn and carport when NOBODY DIED THERE.

How about the fact that Defendant Ayotte lied to Attorney X and told him that the witness statements were all consistent with respect to Floyd's actions and that he is livid about it.

He's no dummy, he's a highly-respected attorney.

That's just for starters.

I read your lawsuit and I watched your movie. I am sorry, drugs are drugs in my book. They are all illegal.

So, if I understand this, you are saying that Floyd went out with a gun, knowing that Liko was going to be on that road shooting an officer? What did you want him to say? Um, excuse me, put that gun away and you are bad for shooting someone. Get out of the car. Have you ever been in a heated moment and made a decision? I would have to say you have. Think about this. You saw the video. You can honestly tell me that if Floyd told Liko to get out of the car, he wouldn't have gotten shot also? Dear God, where's my boots.

Possession of and dealing PCP is a Felony in the State of NH not a misdemeanor, if I am not mistaken.

What is the cover up? A man was shot repeatedly and then another man was shot while he reloaded his gun to shoot the next cop. What is so unclear about that?

I would have to say plenty is unclear, if you think it is that cut and dry. Kenney was trying to get away from what he had just done (which was wrong). The "magic bullet" hit the windshield at the trim level near the cowl (still not explained). Of course Kenney may have been trying to reload McKay didn't fire the bullet, so Floyd must have. I would have reloaded too, someone starts shooting at me. Mr. Floyd at that point was taking the law into his own hands. Kenney reloading and firing back at Mr. Floyd is called self defense.

Liko Kenney stops the car, Mr. Floyd walks up to the closed passenger window of the car DOES NOT say one single word. He fires 2 rounds through the closed passenger window into Liko Kenney, killing him (most likely instantly)

Liko Kenney a man holding a jammed gun (unable to be fired), which Mr. Floyd as a former Marine "marksman" knew was jammed. Mr. Floyd had he desired to could have incapacitated Liko Kenney so that he couldn't have shot anyone.(wrist, elbow, forearm,all of which the bullet would have been a through and through shot and also struck Liko in either of his legs. Liko Kenney could have stood trial for the crime he is accused of committing.

Instead, Mr. Floyd decided it was time to put another bragging notch on his belt "this is my 43rd kill." So instead he fires one shot into Liko Kenney's neck,effectively destroying Liko's ability to breathe, vocal chords,carotid arteries. Then he fires the "kill" shot into his brain.
Mr. Floyd on May 11,2007 didn't allow Justice to run it's due course, he decided that he had the ultimate right to be prosecutor, judge, and jury and execute Liko Kenney.

Try having your throat ripped out by a bullet while your heart is still beating and you are alive, you are choking in your own blood. I've seen it and it's not a sight I ever want to see again. What Mr. Floyd did was nothing short of executing Liko Kenney.

Enlightened now?

And what did Liko Kenney do to Bruce McKay? Self defense?

Christopher King said...

I read your lawsuit and I watched your movie. I am sorry, drugs are drugs in my book. They are all illegal.

....That rationale is ridiculous and I'm glad you're not a lawmaker. I break the law every time I drive because I'm sure I drive a mile or two over the limit. But I don't drive 50 mph over the limit. The law makes graduations based on the level of an offense, and PCP selling is not equivalent to smoking marijuana, hate to burst your bubble there. Or what, are you on PCP so you can't comprehend the distinction?

And what did Liko Kenney do to Bruce McKay? Self defense?

11:18 AM

....Quite possibly yes, and quite possibly manslaughter and certainly not murder as Kelly said. You ever read the Huey P. Newton case involving State of Unconsciousness. Perhaps you should, you might learn something.

....Or what you want to actually try to tell me that Liko was not in fear of his life from a guy like McKay? Let me get my boots on.

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

You can honestly tell me that if Floyd told Liko to get out of the car, he wouldn't have gotten shot also? Dear God, where's my boots.

10:28 AM

....Liko died with his seatbelt on, stupid. He was in no hurry to do anything that evening except get a witness to whatever McKay was going to do to his this time, seeing as last time McKay had him dropped to the ground for a beat-down for no legitimate reason involving the Unconstitutional arrests at Fox Hill Park. Or have you not read Judge Cyr's decisions on that, sustaining Motions to Suppress that were filed on behalf of folks who were blatantly smoking marijuana while Liko was not. He was just SITTING IN HIS CAR.

.....And you miss the FACT that Floyd's own son said at p 745 of the pdf file that Liko didn't even run McKay over until his father shot the car; the first time he stopped before he hit him, and remember he had a face full of OC Spray and was going blind.

.....Don't need any boots coming from me because there's no bullshit in my game.

....I see you also glossed over the fact that Floyd lied about material issues during his investigation, an action that NH AG Peter Heed says is a criminal violation, NH RSA 641:3.

....See, Kelly ignored that because once you have Floyd lying about something it opens up a can of worms, kind of like an RSA 91-A Right-to-Know lawsuit :)

Don't address me as stupid - as I never addressed you that way.

His seatbelt was on and he had a loaded gun? And he was scared for his life because he didn't trust Bruce and was just making sure he didn't get attacked again? Is that what you are saying? That shooting Bruce was justifiable?

....Okay fine so stop acting stupid.

His seatbelt was on and he had a loaded gun? And he was scared for his life because he didn't trust Bruce and was just making sure he didn't get attacked again? Is that what you are saying? That shooting Bruce was justifiable?

....I have already addressed you issues. Liko was trying to get the hell home or someplace where there would be witnesses; that's why there were 3 trac-phone calls commencing at 6:04pm. His seatbelt was on because he was more interested in operating a motor vehicle than trying to kill someone.

....Again, on the justifiable issue are you telling me Liko had no reason to be in fear of his life with that kind of Tahoe bash and an OC Spray to the face (in violation of town policy I might add which says allow other to evacuate and not to use it when someone might feel trapped and McKay knew Liko was a mental health patient because Liko told him as much in 2003).

....and even if you assume it was not "justiable homicide" (a major assumption in my book and in the minds of many well-established, duly-licensed and practicing attorneys) you still don't have murder. Go look up the statutory requirements and differences between murder and manslaughter.

Are we clear now?

....Indeed he is. That was a typo from being in a hurry at work this morning, thank you for the heads-up. The email was cc'd to Senator Gallus and I crossed lines when typing it.

Well, good for you. You have backed up every comment you have made. That impresses me. But don't call me stupid. I have a right to test you, don't I? If I didn't want your opinion or thoughts on the matter, I wouldn't have asked. You told me to come here and ask, and so I did. The right to know, remember?

Anyway, I still don't agree with you, but I am not the one that has to, am I?

Have a great day!

....And that my friends and foes is the whole point of the First Amendment. Oliver and I are hanging out with an Iraqui Fallujah veteran who totally supports what we are doing and we are about to do much more.

Namaste.
