“While Officer Cox was collecting kudos for his record of DUII enforcement, he also was leaving a trail of citizen complaints — 14 formal complaints in his six-year tour of duty with CPD, including six in a single year. In at least two cases, civil suits were filed against the city stemming from DUI arrests by Cox.....Many citizens of this community have lost confidence in this department because of your actions,” Marr writes. “I believe becoming more proactive will help restore community confidence not only in this department but also in you as an officer.”
My client Michael Isreal does not drink (watch him sing Negro Spirituals in this KingCast short film "American Lawyer One") and he went through the same thing as Mr. Noakes before we prevailed on the state charges, got Officers Hensley and Rhodes adjudicated liable in V1996-61481 for making him a victim of violent crime and collected $58,500.00 in Federal Court.
And Bruce McKay: Here's the Concord Monitor editorial "McKay's File sheds light on why officer died," coupled with NH AG Kelly Ayotte's bald-faced lie that they had only one complaint on Bruce McKay, when in fact they had this one, written by the wife of a police officer, who also holds a degree in Criminal Justice and a teaching certificate. Not to mention what she didn't tell us about Gregory W. Floyd who in my opinion murdered Liko Kenney. How many complaints have to be filed before those in charge actually hold a rogue cop accountable, regardless of how much bling he brings in the door? It's like playing Russian Roulette with human life and when that happens everybody loses.

Look: I was an AAG for three years and clerk for one so I'm not a cop hater. The Caucasian fellow in the picture next to me was a police officer and a client who followed the Isreal case because he knew there was an injustice going on. I am a BAD COP hater though, you bet, so don't get it twisted.
