Failed Corvallis, OR officer Dave Cox and Franconia bully Bruce McKay are inexorably linked by their illegal activity on 5/11.

Remember the 19 Dec 2007 posts about cops who violate the law?
KingCast post.
A Parliament of One post.

Well come to find out that while Cox was busy arresting Brian Noakes on 5/11 Bruce McKay was busy violating Use of Force and OC Spray policies on Liko Kenney.

The screwy part is that even if Liko Kenney had not shot McKay, McKay would never have had to answer for his unlawful use of force because they never made him answer to anything else, even the inappropriate use of his non-police spec, penis-shaped knife.

The Tahoe bash was only authorized in circumstances when deadly force was authorized. No jury in the World would say that McKay was authorized to use deadly force when he based Liko's car back 40 feet.

Use of Chemical Agents
II. Nondeadly
C (5) In all situations involving use of chemical agents, suspects should be given adequate warning of their imminent use and should be afforded time to respond to lawful commands.

Bruce violated ALL OF THAT just before he died, because he hated Liko Kenney and fancied himself John Wayne, pure and simple. His track record clearly shows as much.

Moral of the story: If you are a police officer you have the toughest job in the World. Don't make it any tougher than it has to be for you or for other officers by engaging in conduct not becoming of your status. You might lose your job or worse.

From A Parliament of One:

"The main disparity between Liko and Brian should be non sequitur. It doesn't matter that Brian never got in any trouble, or that Liko did. The fact remains that their constitutional rights were violated by men with a badge; men who were allowed to misuse their power while their superiors turned a blind eye."

So simple.

I never put the dates together. What a strange coincidence.

Very strange indeed.

The Devil is in the details.

There are no coincidences in this World, only stuff that matters and stuff that doesn't.

This matters.
