KingCast explains why NH AG Kelly Ayotte should be disbarred like Mike Nifong for her actions in the Franconia shooting tragedy.

I haven't even gone through the whole file yet (well in part because maybe only 70% of it has actually been released) but given our network we've been able to piece this together very well and in short order, given that the video and materials they have provided have only been out for 5 working days. Here we go:

The BIG LIE is at p.40 of the official report when the state writes,

"Even though Floyd told Kenney to stop trying to reload his gun and drop the weapon...."

1. We already know that Caleb and Floyd BOTH said that there was no discussion whatsoever. Floyd admitted that at p. 20 of the official report and Caleb at p.11 of the official report.

2. And given that p. 26 of the official report says that "the passenger window was in the fully up position but the glass was in fragments with broken glass inside and outside the car" that means Floyd shot the window out.

Pray tell, how much conversation did Floyd, the purported Viet Nam veteran (at just 49 years of age mind you) have with Liko through that closed window I wonder because he sure as hell didn't have any with him AFTER he cleared the window because Liko was dead, pronto -- basically executed.

For perpetuating these lies to the American Public NH AG Kelly Ayotte should pay the ultimate price and I don't mean suspension:

I mean Disbarment, like Mike Nifong.

Query, did New Hampshire State Police Captain Russell Conte put her up to this? He's a liar, too. And if so, then maybe he should foot the bill for her legal defense. Although that shouldn't cost much because there IS NO DEFENSE for what she did, especially after holding the file for 6 full weeks and that's the best they can make it look? Not only unethical but thoroughly unimaginative and just plain stupid.

Related post: Kelly's big question.

Related post: This post will be added as part of the pending ethics complaint against Attorneys Ayotte and Homicide Chief Jeffery Strelzin for lying about the presence of audiotaped recordings of primary witnesses, some of whom with which KingCast has spoken.

Namaste.

KingCast says we are at War with our Government as Independence Day approaches over a known felon and a "wacko" cop in Franconia shooting tragedy.

In which the folks from Franconia meet an unlikely ally from the streets of Cleveland Heights. Consider:

1. Floyd was a known felon and we wonder exactly how he got McKays weapon if indeed that's what he used.

2. He lied to the police about warning Liko before he killed him, switching his story later. Here's the real deal at one and two.

3. He lied to the police about fighting in Viet Nam and probably lied about killing 43 men, although we do know he killed at least one.

4. He had no idea if Bruce McKay was dead or alive by Attorney General Ayotte's own admission.

5. He wasn't under too much of a threat from Liko to be shot or run over because he was next to the car when he shot through the passenger window inches away from Caleb Macaulay's head. Floyd could have withdrawn, duh. Caleb told folks he was pulling glass out of his head for what seemed like weeks.

6. With guns in his hands, he threatened a brand new police officer who is now in need of mental, emotional and pyschological counseling, as is everyone involved, as noted in a letter to the editor from the Franconia Collective that should appear tomorrow (Sunday) in the Concord Monitor. But because KingCast and the collective rock out together you can read it first right here.

Had Shooter Floyd killed someone who had not killed a cop he would be up underneath the jail right now and waiting a vigorous prosecution and at least 15 years to life. But because he killed a cop, he gets a pass, and a coverup.

*********

Now on to Bruce McKay, two conversations with strangers, both middle-aged Caucasian couples in Lexington, Mass -- the Birthplace of the Revolution, mind you:

"Oh, yeah I know he was a dirty cop."
"Why?"
"Just my intuition. I saw how he pulled up and smashed that boy's car back and maced him right in the face with no comment or explanation whatsoever.... and I thought 'that's not very professional.'"

and then with a couple and the husband works at a pretty high-powered Boston area radio station:

"What do you do for a living?"
"THAT," I say, pointing to the blawg post sitting on the counter.
"Oh, I remember that.... yeah and it slipped out the cop was a wack-job."
"Yeah, he was tapped," I said.

And that, along with NH AG Kelly Ayotte's insistence on doing all things wrong in the "investigation" and lying about and withholding key evidence to this day date and time, resulting in an ethics complaint and more Right-to-Know requests from others, has totally poisoned the well.

To this point she has shown no more maturity or common sense than Bruce McKay himself. One must wonder if she's being set up for a Big Fall herself. After all, Governor Lynch DID just ixnay her biggest endeavor to date, the Parental Consent Law from Ayotte v. Planned Parenthood. [link]

KingCast song of the Day for Franconia shooting tragedy: Talking Heads, "Pulled up!"

I'm working on a massive post for later tonight that shows why we are unfortunately at war with our Government as Independence Day approaches over a lunatic liar and a "wacko" cop and a dead young man with a whole lot of Good Spirit who fought against real and actual injustices. On Independence Day my only post will be the letter to Liko Kenney I have been working on, and now it is almost ready.

But for now Pulled up from '77 is an amazing song. I wish.... I could meet..... everyone.... meet them all over again..... take them up to my ROOM..... meet them all over again.... and the indecipherable lyrics that commence at about 2:55 and hit for the rest of the song are simply sublime and so full of energy. I was listening to this stuff when I was 13 and still dust if off every month or two now; it's timeless. And I love the Big Suit.

Yesterday we rolled into Franconia with a Big Suit, a Big BMW and a Big ol' video camera and made a lot of friends. And some other friends from there have indeed as the song says "been up to my room" as well.

Namaste.

KingCast presents: A copy of the 21 June 2007 RSA 91-A request to Franconia Selectmen on Bruce McKay in Franconia shooting tragedy.

Date: Sat, 30 Jun 2007 12:18:48 -0700 (PDT)
From: "Christopher King" kingjurisdoctor@yahoo.com Subject: KingCast RSA 91A request on Bruce McKay as ignored by Franconia Selectmen.
To: Kelly.Ayotte@doj.nh.gov, Jeffery.Strelzin@doj.nh.gov, Andrew@RightToknowNH.org, jamie.richardson@nh.gov.......

Dear Attorneys Ayotte and Strelzin:

I want the requested documents I sought from the town selectmen, and I want them now. And in addition I now want a complete and unabridged copy of Bruce McKay's personnel file as I am aware of a pattern of misconduct that bears relevance to his continued abuse of Liko Kenney and other youth in the area. And don't leave anything out, either because I know more than you think I do, just as I did with respect to the recorded witness testimony you left out of the first package I paid $75.00 for that was incomplete. I will file a consumer fraud complaint with your office on that matter, as well as the pending ethics complaint.

It is amazing you completed your "investigation" with nary a reference to Bruce McKay's personnel file or any complaints that have been filed against him.

Also, I might decide to file a mandamus action to compel production so we can settle the Law on this matter in New Hampshire.

Very truly yours,

Christopher King, J.D. (selectmen request in the overleaf)

**********

McKay did evil, hateful and abusive things to those he didn't like, and that's precisely why he had no integrity. If he was a jerk to everybody, that's not okay, but at least it shows some sort of integrity. McKay just picked on those he didn't like, and in the end that's what got him. Remember when I went to Franconia the first time someone said "I always figured they would find him dead on the side of the road, and if it wasn't Liko it would have been someone else."

KingCast watches NH AG Kelly Ayotte give a pass to Gregory Floyd, a lying and crazed lunatic in the Franconia shooting tragedy.

I told you back on 2 June 2007 that not much he said could be trusted because he lied about being a Marine in Viet Nam. Sure enough, Amy Nash Nixon caught up with that lie, too and wrote a pretty good story yesterday noting that Floyd
said he was a Marine in Vietnam and told state police he had been on assignments for the government that he could not discuss.

Only thing wrong is that she wrote that Floyd told Liko to put his gun down, but that makes no sense because Caleb's window was up and Floyd shot through the window and Caleb and Floyd have BOTH stated that Floyd said nothing, just killed Liko out of rage and Kelly already told us in this email that Floyd had no idea if McKay was alive or not.

Read the Floyd cover-up entry from yesterday morning before we visited Franconia and found out a whole lot of things the AG's office hopes we won't talk about in "Franconia 5/11."

Later this weekend I'm going to draft a Petition in Mandamus tying in the lies and deception regarding the evidentiary materials produced and not produced in this case, as noted in the KingCast ethics complaint and further noted by John P's Right-to-Know request. Eventually the general media will be compelled to report these issues whether they like it or not. For the large part I am truly disgusted by how the media has conducted itself in this case.

And that means you, Beverley Wang. I've got all the emails I've sent you in a special file so I can adjunct teach on how NOT to be a journalist.

Related video: Paul Hardcastle, "19" because Bruce McKay did not deserve a hero's welcome, and neither does Shooter Floyd. But Liko Kenney does, not because he shot and killed McKay, but because he, as a citizen, stood up to his abuse, going all the way back to when he was NOT in a suspicious place at a suspicious time; he was at the park trailhead in a highly residential area, and that's why he told McKay:

"You don't have the right to keep me here without a good reason." But McKay did that kind of stuff to those he didn't like, and that's precisely why he had no integrity. If he was a jerk to everybody, that's not okay, but at least it shows some sort of integrity. McKay just picked on those he didn't like, and in the end that's what got him. Remember when I went to Franconia the first time someone said "I always figured they would find him dead on the side of the road, and if it wasn't Liko it would have been someone else."

KingCast production update on Franconia 5/11: "Bruce McKay was a bully," and the Fox Hill park trailhead is not a suspicious place.

I'm tired after a long day of production so there will be no comments to old posts until I feel like it.
"Ma'am what was your opinion of Bruce McKay?"
"He was a bully."

and from a different voice:

"I hate to say it, but McKay walked around here like he was King Shit of the neighborhood.... [effin'] with people he didn't like...... and Liko showed him he wasn't."

I get the feeling from many that Bruce McKay was a not-so-immortal Robocop, circa 2007 but with even less compassion.

And he was most certainly a bully or worse, and more on this later. But for now, how about the 98-lb. girl McKay maced out in front of the village store who fell out and the ambulance had to get her? And if you don't know who Miss Ellie is, then you haven't been there. And did you know Liko Kenney was NOT without prior factual bases and directives from authority in trying to wave McKay about 900 feet down the road to Tamarack Tennis Camp, where he grew up and where his memorial still sits? As to the 2007 request for another officer,
"You would have been so proud of how Liko handled himself," said Caleb Macaulay to another of Liko's friends.

Oh, also to make Caleb's statement play we had to download it to my film maker's machine where he is now rendering it in final cut pro and then he will cut me a disc and we will put it on line; see how it matches up with the written summary in the 43-page Official Report. The video played this time, but it is still inexplicable why there is no real audio before McKay pulls up to Liko. Why would McKay not have his audio on?

I couldn't visit to play at Tamarack 2 years ago because the previous bogus AG attack on me as NAACP Legal Chair (see para. 2) took all of my money and time, but I walked it in a flash today after a couple of flips on the Tamarack Trampoline. Funny, we've got one too. Massive, takes up the whole garage space. Anyway, what, was McKay worried that Liko was going to round up some tennis cadets to beat him up with junior rackets, or what? Please, I doubt it. But Liko and a lot of area youth sure were afraid of Bruce McKay, and from what I understand, so too was his ex-wife.

Anyway, were are McKay's personnel files and citizen complaints? No mention of these in the sham final review, but I'll find out one way or the other. McKay was in many ways an evil man, sad to say but coming from people who ate dinner with him and who know of the legal liabilities he raised against the town that were not reported in NH AG Kelly Ayotte's official report.

Bottom Line: Sam Stephenson is a Great Guy and a credible witness, and Kelly Ayotte is in lot of trouble. A whole lot.

Oh, yeah: The neighborhood park from 2003, pictured at top, is hardly a "suspicious place." We know because we talked with the folks in the community and soon we willl take you there in the videos.

KingCast and community members say Bruce McKay was a bully;Liko Kenney died 800 feet from his home at Tamarack Tennis Camp.

First of all, going to 2003, Fox Hill Park was not a "suspicious place" in the least. It is a TRAIL HEAD for walks and mountainbikes, situated in an area in which a DECADE-plus resident told me today that s/he has NEVER heard of any problems of any kind during summer, spring, winter, or fall as JT would say. That would be, what, 40 SEASONS......


And just down the road, Tamarack camp is such an incredible spiritual and tennis oasis that it belies comprehension. It is tennis mecca. Of course none of this is mentioned in mainstream media for some reason, as if it's not relevant. Believe me, it is HIGHLY RELEVANT. Liko's cabin was right there, so is his shrine and so were witnesses to whatever Bruce McKay wanted to do to him on 5/11, one day after his grace period on his registration expired and McKay and Shooter Floyd were laying in wait for him. More on this later.


And Liko's request to deal with another officer was not without factual and/or legal precedent, I can tell you THAT. On a related note, ask for Bruce McKay's arrest file statistics, including the number and character of complaints against him. Perhaps you can find it in the AG's official summary report.


No, you cannnot. There is not one mention of his past, but plenty about Liko Kenney's. Nice.


What did McKay think was going to happen if they went to Tamarack? What, that they would beat him to death with junior tennis rackets??? ..... Whatever he thought, he knew he couldn't bear to let Liko get there, but instead of trying to force the issue and run away in the '82 Supra:
The grey car was not going fast. I thought [McKay] was trying to get around it [for something else]. He made several movements (her daughter called it a "10-point turn" in her interview) to come nose to nose now facing north.... [McKay] pushed him and kept pushing him down (into the gravel area) dirt flew back the police car pushed him so strongly and just kept pushing and pushing and pushing until the grey car was beyond my view."
Instead he pulled back into the lot and let McKay dictate what would happen, and he maced the hell out of Liko and Caleb as if they were common cockroaches and proved himself to be what again?


"What do you think about Bruce McKay?"


"He was a bully," a well-respected community member said.


And she was not alone.


We had a beautiful day in Franconia, as I have had every time since I moved to New Hampshire in 2002. Also, Sam Stephenson is one helluva nice guy, Big Energy and Big Spirit.

KingCast watches NH AG Kelly Ayotte peppered with Right-to-Know inquiry.

John P. is a smart guy, and earlier today he and I finally figured out the coverup of Shooter Floyd's actions, as noted in this post. How does it feel to get peppered, counselor?
"Also, in order for me to understand what material is available related to this completed investigation and incident; please direct me to where I might see a full and complete list of "ALL" material, documents, statements and any and all evidence that is available for purchase or for free involving this investigation and also "a list" of any material, documents, statements and any and all evidence that you may not be releasing publicly and the reason for these items not being released."

John's full email to Attorney Ayotte is in the comments section, in which he more than supports the KingCast ethics complaint sent to the NH Supreme Court, USPS # 03060320000371311790

KingCast explains the NH AG coverup of Shooter Floyd and why Kelly Ayotte should lose her job and respect of taxpayers in Franconia shooting tragedy.

From the "We ain't scared of your Tahoe" post; see the commentor's original statement to me in the comments section. So fitting this should happen on the day we continue filming. But if there's any hater cops out there don't look for us in the SAABy-SAAB; we're in something German today. And we've got cameras .... with sound.

3:43:

I know. The report mentions the shattered glass [and I knew this all along anyway from my sources].

Shooter Floyd is trying to eliminate his potential liability to Caleb.

And what's really disgusting, as I noted in this post applauding the Concord Monitor is the way in which the media reported the uncorroborated version of the events when Floyd later lies about whether or not he said ONE WORD to Liko because.... he.... didn't. His own statements as noted in that post along with Caleb's statements prove he didn't say one word.

Also sad is the fact that Liko waved [and shouted] to Floyd to help as a witness, which CNN left out. But which we will put right back in, in slow motion, for our film, Franconia 5/11.

And the facts will show that:

1. Kelly Ayotte acknowledged to Attorney X [in this email from the seminal post] that Floyd had no clue that McKay was alive or not;

2. He had no apprehension or fear for himself because he was outside the car ON THE PASSENGER SIDE and never warned Liko about anything [one and two] and also was under no reasonable fear or apprehension for his own life because Liko was not hardly going to shoot past Caleb and a closed window to shoot Floyd.

3. This part is speculation, but I believe Floyd shot Liko out of rage because he shot his buddy McKay and had run him over. And I further believe that Liko, with mace face, hit McKay by accident and then was trying to get him off from under his car, in the manner of something you step on in the park that is unsavory to those of us with two legs.[When I say "buddy" it is speculation that they were cool with each other, and we have to wonder to where those criminal menacing charges against Floyd disappeared. McKay, as quasi-prosecutor had that authority].

***********

Thank you for bringing that up because it is ESSENTIAL.

But then so too are the missing and hidden and lied about, digitally-recorded material witness statements from Chuck and Sam. And perhaps others.

That's why KingCast filed an ethics complaint, and that's why this case is going to remain hot for years, in the manner of a radioactive isotope.

Attorneys Ayotte and Strelizin's careers should be so lucky. He's wiggin' so hard right now he's sending me blank emails:

Look, even if someone didn't like what Liko did, he had a right to a Jury. But not to Kelly Ayotte's -- or whomever is running the show in Concord's --mind: To the posters who brought this up again, you get a Gold Star and a hero's welcome, unlike those 19 year-olds who went to die in Viet Nam about 40 years ago. Watch the Paul Hardcastle video if you don't get the reference. And Floyd, despite being described as a Viet Nam veteran.... is not. Heck at 49 he's just a few years older than me.

KingCast says, "We ain't scared of your Tahoes" -- Back to the Franconia shooting video: Something's not right there, either.

First of all, LE has been knowledgeable of the video for a long time. Liko and our friend Oliver knew that McKay didn't give a command when he peppered Liko and Caleb because Oliver's ex roomie was LE. Then it comes up allegedly without sound until the last seconds, yet you can hear muffled voices at times?

Negro please. Seems to me like a continuation of the alleged lack of audio interviews, which by way of the KingCast valid and accurate ethics complaint we now know not to be true. So to Kelly Ayotte and whomever is running the show up there in Concord let me tell you this:

The people of Franconia might not be the most tech or computer savvy, but they've got a whole lot of common sense, and frankly you've been insulting it. And KingCast is about to show the entire World just how you've done it, and the impact it is having on the community. There's two-page letter from the Franconia Collective right here that will run in Sunday's Concord Monitor.

Well take your stupid Tahoe and run it right off the road with a 20-year old Turbo; push and push and push you right up flush with the Guardrail of Justice.
The grey car was not going fast. I thought [McKay] was trying to get around it [for something else]. He made several movements (her daughter called it a "10-point turn" in her interview) to come nose to nose now facing north....

KingCast presents Columbus Historian and videographer James Whitaker

My first videographer back in the 90's when I drove Das Jetta was Michael Whitaker, now 61 years young, a black history studies major. All of the old footage at KingCast.net was shot by him, and paid for by the community, my settlements and Mr. Whitaker. With "Franconia 5/11" we keep on keepin' on.

Here's an audio conversation during the Indictment period, probably March, 2006.

Q: Have you ever seen me act unprofessionally in a courtroom, Sir?
A: No, I haven't. Not to my knowledge.

And he's right. It's All Good though, because getting slammed in Ohio put me right here in Franconia.

Yeah, he is definitely buggin' over the ethics charge.

Nah, what was harrassing him was my sexy Russian sidekick with that Big Bad Nikon D50 they couldn't do anything about. Look at that hater Martin Dunn toting a secret file on me.

KingCast network spots the spirit of Liko Kenney living on in Franconia; and a plea for help from the community.

We've got your back, brother.

The Franconia Collective has authorized KingCast to reproduce this letter (1/2) sent to the Concord Monitor, in which they openly praise Reporter Timmins for looking deeper into this tragedy. It's going in the Sunday paper, but you read it here first. We're just now really getting to the hidden evidence and cover-up part, and it took but 3 days to get there. Oopsie-Daisy, Kelly.

I just know Liko is up there laughing at the fact that we're exposing the improper actions of bad actors Cox, Dick and Wang in all matters related to this case. See comments.

Related KingCast video: "Live Revolution."

KingCast watches NH AG Kelly Ayotte's wikipedia closely.

This one is from the first Ayotte link in the CBGB's post. Time for a new addition later, one that they can't remove: In 2007, Ms. Ayotte's office failed to turn over digitally-recorded statements from a primary witness in a double homicide involving a police officer and the witness was "one of the first civilians who arrived on the scene and observed the scene prior to the other responders."

She then cleared Gregory Floyd -- a man with chemical drug felony and weapons charges -- of any wrongdoing with respect to Liko Kenney and his passenger, Caleb Macaulay within 24 hours yet held the evidence for another six (6) weeks before failing to produce it. Just after killing Kenney without a word, Floyd threatened the life of another officer on the scene, telling him while picking up guns, "careful son, I'm quicker than you."

Ayotte then hired Floyd to execute KingCast owner Christopher King, J.D. for issuing an ethics complaint against her and Homicide Section Chief Jeffery Strelzin.

The last paragraph is parody, I hope.

Related KingCast video: "Live Revolution."

Police review concurs with KingCast: McKay was unprofessional in Franconia shooting tragedy.

The truth is coming out and I agree with this officer from Reporter Timmins' story today. That's part of why I filed this ethics complaint.
"Kingsman" of Michigan questioned McKay's decision to ram Kenney's car backward several feet ("Is this normal police behavior?" he wrote) and wondered why McKay turned away from Kenney after spraying him with pepper spray. McKay knew Kenney owned a gun; just three weeks prior, McKay had posted a safety notice in the Franconia station cautioning officers to be careful with Kenney because he could be armed.

"When this first happened," Kingsman wrote on officer.com, "I was all sure the officer had been ambushed. He had my sympathy. But after seeing the video . . . he acted unprofessionally.

"That being said," Kingsman continued, "he did not deserve what happened to him."

No he didn't. But Liko didn't deserve what happened to him, either, and I'm talking about things that will come out in litigation of which the general public has no clue and I will let the family attorneys address in that milieu.

KingCast files ethics complaint against NH Attorney General's office in Franconia shooting tragedy Right-to-Know violation.

Dead trees snail mail version one and two. Feel free to copy and CC me as you send them in at the address on the letterhead.
Dear New Hampshire Supreme Court and Right to Know Association.

Please consider this ethics complaint against New Hampshire Attorney General Kelly Ayotte and Jeffery Strelzin with the utmost of your energies because it involves the investigation of a double homicide involving New Hampshire Law Enforcement Officer Bruce McKay and a special young man named Liko Kenney. Connie McKenzie, the property owner who attempted to help save Officer McKay's life told ABC News,
People didn't trust Bruce McKay and they didn't like him. Heck I was afraid of him. You know when a police officer gets shot, it's a big deal. I understand that, but I want people to know that we loved that boy Liko. He was our native son. I don't want him to go down as just a cop killer. He was full of life and articulate and funny."

I have spoken with Nashua Police Lieutenant Tim Goulden about this matter, and we both concur that it is a tragedy of epic proportions where now two men who both had much to offer the community are dead and Gregory Floyd -- a man with an extremely checkered past with drug and weapons violations -- was absolved by the NH Attorney General of any and all criminal wrongdoing against Liko Kenney and Caleb Macaulay within approximately 24 hours. The missing evidence I am about to detail might have a bearing on that determination and the public has a Right to Access it, and it should have already been provided. Period.

Over the course of the past several weeks, we at KingCast.net have attempted to obtain a full set of records, including all relevant video and audio that might help us track this case, in light of the Preamble to the Act which provides "Openness in the conduct of public business is essential to a democratic society," and Article 8 of the NH Constitution, which reads, in pertinent part "... The public’s right of access to governmental proceedings and records shall not be unreasonably restricted." Attorney Ayotte has written to me on prior occasion involving the New Hampshire School Boards Association (NHSBA) and Right-to-Know, so I expected a thorough response to my inquiry to Attorney Strelzin -- copied to Attorney Ayotte -- in which I requested to know why there were only six (6) CD witness statements listed on the Right-to-Know order sheet. Attachment 1, order sheet.

Attorney Strelzin, with the implicit support of Attorney Ayotte under respondeat superior and other legal principles of agency, made the affirmative misrepresentation that the reason there were only six (6) CDs is because,
"Some interviews were not audio recorded and are memorialized in report form, which is why the number of actual interviews exceeds the number of audio CDs available."
I responded thusly:
Indeed. What or who determined which witnesses were audio recorded? 'll be checking to see whose interviews appear somewhat buried in the 1,000 page report,"

as noted in the 24 June 2007 entry entitled, "KingCast presents: Update on RSA 91-A materials from NH AG Kelly Ayotte in Franconia shooting tragedy," on Chris King's 1st Amendment page. Attachment 2, 24 June 2007 email chain.

In point of fact, I had known for approximately one month that there were other digitally-recorded interviews, and it took me all of 9 minutes to sift through the 1,000 pages of investigative materials in order to find that Charles Herbert, who was with Sam Stephenson, was indeed interviewed at his home on 12 May 2007 at 0128 hours and that it was
"digitally recorded....and held in evidence at the Major Crime Unit," because HERBERT "is one of the first civilians who arrived on scene and observed the scene prior to the other responders. HERBERT also provided background information on both McKay and Kenney.

Attachment 3, Investigation Report.

With all due respect, Charles Herbert's name is only mentioned once or twice in the AG's 43 page report, and we all know that it would be criminally negligent not to audiotape ALL primary witnesses to a homicide. As such, I requested the names of all persons who have been digitally or otherwise taped and Attorney Strelzin requested another five (5) days to respond, but really he doesn't have that option now, having materially misrepresented what was available in the first place, and I know there are more taped interviews. Even if there were not, I am entitled to Mr. Herbert's taped interview immediately. I wrote him:
"You do what you have to do and I'll do what I have to do."

Attachment 4, 27 June email chain.
I find that that Attorneys Ayotte and Strelzin's conduct violates the following ABA Disciplinary Rules of Professional Responsibility:

DR 1-102(A)(4) Engaging in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation.
DR 1-102(A)(5) Engaging in conduct that is prejudicial to the administration of justice.
DR 1-102(A)(6) Engaging in any other conduct that adversely reflects on his fitness to practice law.

To add insult to injury, Attorney Strelzin, on or about 15 June, 2007 attempted to prevent KingCast cameras from rolling footage in the lobby of the Attorney General's office, an area consonant with media activity. As a former AAG and newspaper editor I am appalled.

Please review these matters and contact me within the next calendar week as to your respective timeframes in evaluating and issuing a response to these issues. Should you need further information I will provide you with all of my records in this matter.

Very Truly Yours,

Christopher King, J.D.

KingCast aks: Who cut the sound on Bruce McKay's cruiser video in the Franconia shooting tragedy?

I have been around Law Enforcement since 1988 when I started reporting, and I have witnessed the advent of the dash-cam and its now-ubiquitous use. Just as I had my suspicions about Homicide AG Jeffery Strelzin emailing me that there were actually some double-homicide involving a police officer interviews done without sound/recording, (it turns out I was obviously correct that he lied to me and I'm studying a bar complaint tonight) I now have my suspicions about why in the hell there is no audio on the videos. I have not listened to the replacement disc I plan to retrieve from the AG but in none of the other videos is there any audio until McKay goes to mace Liko (without a word or any directive whatsoever).

Why no audio? Audio should be there to protect the officer; it justifies everything the officer does unless he's dirty or trying to hide something:

3:01 PM poster comment:

Am I missing something when I view the video of the first 5/11 stop? I do not see where McKay got out of his car to talk with Kenney. Did Kenney know why he was pulled over? I see them sitting there for over two minutes but do not see McKay talk to Kenney before Kenney drives off.

3:01 PM

response:

McKay is outside of the viewfinder. According to Caleb, Liko asked several times for another police officer as a witness or to let another cop altogether deal with the stop. McKay continually told him he did not have that choice. Liko tried at least 3 times to reach an uncle to come and bear witness. He asked McKay to meet him at Tamarac so there could be a witness. If they didn't cut the sound we would have heard all of this.

KingCast asks, why did Floyd continue to sit there after McKay and Liko both moved from the street? Remember, Liko reversed his car and pulled well off the street, then McKay pulled into the lot. If I see McKay pull into the lot, as someone driving down the road with no specific interest, I'm outta' there.

Also Floyd says he was not able to clear the round in Liko's gun but yet investigators said both weapons were found in working order... So, it was not jammed and Liko had no reason to unjam and no reason to reload as it had bullets already in it and Liko had no spare rounds in the car.

KingCast update on pending bar complaint against NH AGs Ayotte and Strelzin on withheld witness audio in Franconia shooting tragedy.

Remember this morning's post about how KingCast is demanding production of the audiotaped, contemporary witness statements in this matter, one of which was conducted at 1:28 in the morning on 12 May, 2007 at Chuck Herbert's house? In case you forgot, here then is a copy of the proof. Attorneys Ayotte and Strelzin haven't forgotten, they just don't know how to handle that slice ball I just hit them, deep to the backhand, so they threw up another high lob:

Jeff Strelzin

......this time he has to respond unlike this time when he didn't want me to tape our conversation where I told him a few choice things about the state of law enforcement in Northern New Hampshire. He never articulated a response, so that means he had no such authority.

KingCast again applauds Concord Monitor for journalistic integrity in Franconia shooting tragedy.

Finally some major news entity is asking the difficult questions that need to be asked, even if they were wrong in today's story to state that the video "shows McKay using his vehicle to ram Kenney's car off the road."

That is wholly incorrect: Liko Kenney had already backed off from the main road by 20-30 feet; this is the audio transcription from the neighbor from the seminal post; the adjunct post with timelines where I note that Liko had yelled and motioned for Floyd to stay as witness is here.
"The grey car was not going fast. I thought [McKay] was trying to get around it [for something else]. He made several movements (her daughter called it a "10-point turn" in her interview) to come nose to nose now facing north.... [McKay] pushed him and kept pushing him down (into the gravel area) dirt flew back the police car pushed him so strongly and just kept pushing and pushing and pushing until the grey car was beyond my view."

And they fail to mention that the State misrepresented the alleged absence of certain digitally or otherwise recorded witness statements, including Chuck Herbert who along with his friend Sam Stephenson.

I saw the Union Leader write that Floyd spoke to Liko before killing him, but we now know that to be untrue because I printed Floyd's examination at p.20/1,000 which corresponds with Caleb Macaulay's comments at p.11 of the 43 page official report. So it is irresponsible journalism -- at best -- to print that without printing the countervailing (read: substantiated) version.

I saw AP writer Beverley Wang misrepresent that wave by saying Liko was "waving someone away." That's is totally inconsistent with Liko's history with McKay when he asked for backup officers in 2003 and it is entirely inconsistent with what Caleb Macaulay said at p.10 the 43 page official report, "He did not know these people but yet he still motioned and yelled at them to stay for a minute as witnesses,,"
.....yet she wrote it.

Then I saw on CNN today where they edited out Liko motioning McKay to Tamarack Tennis Camp for witnesses and edited out the Tahoe shove before the macing.

That's all irresponsible journalism and it's not because the budget was so tight that they couldn't run those extra 10 seconds of footage. It's because the mass media would rather make a cop killer look as bad as possible while ignoring any and all of the other salient details.

To the extent that the Concord Monitor breaks from that fold -- and they broke from the fold to announce that a nasty, bubblehead prosecutor named Bill Albrecht was under an ethics investigation (see para. 2) -- so I encourage them to Keep on Keepin' on, and say something about the missing documents, as I note in this Bar Complaint warning to the Attorneys General Ayotte and Strelzin, in which the Littleton Courier is starting to report on the contradictions and other concerns in this matter, which again was closed in less than one business day, as I noted herein.

Floyd likes to threaten people, including officers and he loves to brag about how many people he has killed. We know about the "give you a third eye" threat to police, we know about the 5/11 threat to another officer "Careful son, I'm quicker than you," I read quickly in the 1,000pp. evidence CD where he says "you know I've killed 43(IIRC) people," and I've heard a rumour that he threated to shoot someone after they had a problem with his son watching gay porn in a public area. Given his track record, sadly I have little reason to doubt that.

But he killed a cop killer, so Ayotte and most of the press and the adoring public say he's a hero and Ayotte withholds crucial evidence from people who were there seconds after he shot and killed Liko. Nice.

KingCast presents the Littleton Courier, a bar association complaint and a non-profit for "Franconia 5/11."

I am glad that the Littleton Courier is a paper that is picking up on some of the issues in this case, even if they haven't called the AG's office on the mat for failing to produce audio recordings of folks who were first on the scene. The failure to do so while lying about it may constitute a criminal act. It certainly will resulte in a bar association complaint. This means you, Attorney Strelzin, for what you said to me on Sunday night, and your boss, Attorney Ayotte whom I cc on everything just so she has ACTUAL KNOWLEDGE, just as she has actual knowledge that I support her on the First Amendment/Commercial speech Data Mining case; ask Rush Limbaugh about all of that. Wrote the Courier:
"The video from Franconia Police Cpl. Bruce McKay's cruiser shows the final moments before 24-year-old Liko Kenney shoots him following a
traffic stop. Discrepancies between the case file and audio clips leave the actions and demeanor of Kenney's killer, 49-year-old Gregory Floyd, still in question.

The number and location of spent shell casings, along with conflicting information provided by Floyd and Kenney's surviving passenger in interviews immediately following the shooting, has left some questions unanswered."

....ummmm, call me crazy but that's why I find Mr. Herbert's audio interview germane.

Anyway, it appears that we may construct a non-profit association, and we will even be amenable to talking with police like Chris Fowler, who has spoken very negatively about Liko Kenney and who is part of the Franconia Conciliation group, which to my knowledge has never contacted any of the Kenney family or Connie McKenzie, who tried to revive Bruce McKay on her front lawn that fateful day. I know these things because these people are on my speed dial.

It may seem like I come down hard on police in this blawg, but as a former AAG who has sued and represented LE in private practice, I am someone who has had, and continues to have friends in LE. I just talked to Nashua Lieutenant Tim Goulden yesterday in fact, watch "Day in Nashua" at KingCast.net (largely paid for through the community) to see one of our earlier conversations as we got to know each other. So any LE who says I don't respect reasonable law enforcement officials is full of hot air and something more solid and to the south: I am just giving the perspective that the mass media refuse to share, so I have to point out major lies like those told by NH State Police Captain Russell Conte and the aforesaid failure to disclose material evidence, coupled with the affirmative misrepresentation that such evidence did not exist.

With 81 comments as of 8:15 a.m. these are my thoughts about open government.

Related post: Law students get it, just as they did in Columbus before the Government pushed me out. But they can't push me out of the Internet and the hearts of the locals. Instead they can prepare to answer the ethics complaint for withholding evidence to the public and affirmatively misrepresenting its presence.

Namaste.

26 June 2007

KingCast says, "Macs are fun" but McKay's war with the Kenney/Miller folks was not.

The document is of course proof the NH AAG and Homicide Chief Jeffery Strelzin lied to me about Chuck Herbert's audiotaped witness interview, in which he may have addressed the issue that is about to be described below when Liko tried to get his gun back from a mentally unstable 15-year old. While Liko did not have a proper permit (as don't many folks in the area) McKay's actions and comments to him, and about his family are significant and relevant background to Liko's state of mind on 5/11.

7:40pm Obviously you are a cop or you would not know this information? Did you know that 3 weeks earlier, that day in court Liko went up against McKay & Brett B (state trooper) & a minor, who was NOT his cousin that should have been charged for stealing a firearm? This is a juvenile delinquint who is 15 yrs old has had a very unstable past and who has also been caught stealing in the past and who could have quite easily taken the gun to school and taken down 1/2 of the students. This young and troubled minor - received NOT one single charge, but Liko was put on probation and fined. He was also threatened that if he did one thing wrong that they would get him.

This statement that McKay writes, only shows the lack of compassion he had for Liko. This was a kid who was trying to get it right, had tried to get the law on his side and had gone to the law for help. This was injustice! This could have been a turning point in their relationship - Liko was asking for help and realized that it was not there for him that day when he left court. McKay let him know that day in court that he was going to get him. of course Liko was upset, why would he not be? I am of course not justifying the shooting, but McKay had pushed this kid and everyone knew it.

There are two parts that McKay left out:
1)That a troubled minor had stolen a gun - hello, what did he want it for? Good question.
2)McKay left the court room and promptly told a reporter for The Littleton Courier that she had just missed it - Bode Miller's cousin had just been found guilty.
- Do you think this shows leadership?

Answer: Of course not, but it explains why McKay was more than happy to John Wayne pepper spray Liko and you could see it in his attitude and posture. As I say, Liko Kenney had problems with authority and so too, did Bruce McKay.

KingCast says "You can't stop the revolution," continuing from the Franconia shooting tragedy.

"Greetings... Love the Blog!
Just stumbled on your sight after starting to research one of the most bizzarre police videos I have seen in a long while. An officer, car facing forward, walk right up and without any visible provocation or reason, blast the occupants of the car with pepper spray. And then get shot. Bizzarre, cause I did not see any threat to the officer. None. The situation appeared under control and at first viewing my knee jerk reactions was "WTF". I am a freshly graduated law student from St. Louis. And just those few seconds of footage, made me feel ill. The spraying, and of course the shooting. Something was horribly wrong there. Reading your Blog, I get the sense that I am right. Thanks and I will be visiting again, this is not your usual police officer shooting. TS"
By Anonymous, at 4:57 PM

My comment from the previous post on NH AG Kelly Ayotte and Jeffery Strelzin lying about and hiding digitally-recorded contemporanous witness statements in a double homicide over in Franconia: We need a revolution, as we noted in KingCast short film, "Live Revolution."
"Just because Liko got more visibly agitated does not inherently mean that McKay was imbued with any more mental stability than Liko. A gun and a badge and a bunch of buddies who look the other way can mask a lot of problems."

And don't tell me there isn't something inherently sinister and humanly debasing about the way in which McKay in such a cavalier manner Absolute peppers Liko and Caleb. He's Mr. Cool, always posing for the camera. I'm sorry he's dead, but he DID have issues. Issues that were never addressed, sadly and the system ultimately failed both men:

Liko Kenney had problems with authority and so too, did Bruce McKay.

Parody: KingCast watches NH AG Kelly Ayotte get fired for hiding witnesses in Franconia tragedy.

New Hampshire June 26, 2007
For Immediate Release

In a surprise development, New Hampshire Governor John Lynch decided that he has had enough of the coverup in Franconia and fired NH AG Kelly Ayotte, effective immediately.
"I had no idea until I read KingCast materials that the State knowingly withheld witness testimony from people like Charles Herbert, who was interviewed at 1:28 a.m. on May 12, 2007. I now know that he was "One of the first on the scene... and provided background on McKay and Kenney....""

Note: Parody. Governor Lynch and NH State Police Captain Russell Conte don't care one bit; that's why Lynch's office hung up on me. It'll catch up to them, though. Just takes a minute or two.

Related post: Watch Strelzin lie to me about it here.

KingCast notes that NH State Police Captain Russell Conte lied in the Franconia shooting tragedy, and mass media helped him do it.

Update: Officer Nolan reports Charles Herbert's interview was digitally recorded on 12 May 2007, 0128 hrs. but not provided from the AG's office. Scan coming here.
Exactly what part of "No means no" does the State and media not understand? Yet everywhere you look it says that Floyd, fearing the situation, had to warn Liko Kenney to put his gun down. Mr. Conte said so in the Boston Globe story:
The elder Floyd drove his Tahoe into a spot between McKay and Kenney as a shield and told his son, who is in his late teens, to run to the officer's cruiser and radio for help.
.....we know that is a lie now because Liko's car was on top of McKay (fn see comments)

The elder Floyd picked up McKay's gun from the ground and ordered Kenney to drop his weapon. Kenney refused, and Floyd saw Kenney appear to be reloading, Conte said. Floyd then shot and killed Kenney, Conte said.
.....we know that is a lie because Floyd said so himself.

Unbelievable. As a former AAG and Editor, I am appalled. As I said in this post for the fact-checker, people like him, and the media who support that activity, will bathe in the blood of both of these men when they meet your makers. We started KingCast to combat all of that, and our movie, "Franconia 5/11" is going to be a powerful statement about people coming together to move forward after a tragedy such as this. We're even going to contact Franconia officer Chris Fowler, who has said some very unflattering things about Liko Kenney -- and who is with the "Franconia reconciliation" group to speak his mind.

Related post: Don't forget the missing audio interviews.

KingCast says here comes the fact-checker from a certain regional magazine in Franconia shooting tragedy.

First of all, Liko Kenney asked his killer for help as a witness before he was nailed with a plume of pepper spray and shot Bruce McKay. I'll get to that in a minute.

Update: NH AG Kelly Ayotte and Jeffery Strelzin hid this witness.

11:37 -- Just got off the phone with the well-known writer as the story is coming toward publication. Please refresh your browser on the hour and throughout the Day, Dear Fact Checker. You and the International men's magazine are the only hopes we have of exposing the truth, which begins with the fact that Sam and Chuck's interviews should have been taped and provided as CDs.

************
Also be aware as noted by Caleb at p.11 of the Official Report and I believe elsewhere, Floyd said nothing to Liko before killing him. No. Thing. As usual, I was right:

Investigative file p.20/1,000: Hard link, also p. 21.

Sergeant West: "All right, so, and did you say anything before you fired?"

Gregory Floyd: "No, I didn't."

*********

Also note from this summary post that Liko is clearly making a furtive gesture toward Floyd. In fact, at p.27 from 43-Page final report: 3 trac-phone calls made by Liko Kenney at 6:05, 6:06 and 6:07. [numbers not disclosed] The AP writer Beverley Wang (read the comments section for my email to her) is the master of deception. "Driver reaching out as if to wave someone away." That's materially false because p.10 of the official report Caleb Macaulay -- who I've met -- said and I quote the official report directly "They stopped in the road and Kenney gestured indicating he want to go to Tamarack (where his uncle was located down the road," and Liko said "No, no, stop pushing my car," and again back to the report at p. 10 lines 7-8:
"He did not know these two people [Floyd and Floyd] but yet he still motioned and yelled at them to stay for a minute as witnesses."

And If you watch the 2003 video all Liko does is ask for backup, and all he was trying to do on 5/11 was to wave McKay down to Tamarack Tennis camp again as noted by Caleb at pp. 9-10 of the Official Report in yesterday's "Franconia 5/11 movie post.

And get this: I told you a long time ago that McKay and Floyd were going to tune Liko up, get Floyd's comment at p.12 of the Official Report that:
"It would not be murder [if he shot Caleb] because he was on medication."

Sounds really creepy. And planned. Who says stuff like that?

Know this to be true: The only reason Ayotte and Strelzin didn't give a press conference yesterday when they disseminated the materials was because KingCast was all set to roast them; much of the other media has no clue what's really going on in this case, but since many of the witnesses are on my speed dial..... I do.

Word search all of the following in the blawg searcher because I don't have time to hot link but some of it is here in my Year-End review: Kelly Ayotte sided with Jaffrey Chief Dunn against me. They lost and he got fired. She sided with Cheshire County Prosecutor Bill Albrecht against me. They lost and he resigned under an ethics scandal reported by the Concord Monitor. She sided with Chief Dunn against former Jaffrey Officer Aaron Deboisbriand, whose father and I kept in touch on the DL and she lost that case in an hour.

Yet we pay her salary; perhaps not for much longer. And if so, well, that's a shame: Even though I do agree with her on the First Amendment data mining case, this travesty of Justice cannot be ignored.

And for you people in media who continue to ignore salient facts and to help the AG cover up the Truth, the blood of both of these men will bathe your souls when you come to met your makers.

Criminal cops? Think about the alleged withdrawn dometic violence abuse claim filed by McKay's ex wife and just ask Bobby Cutts in my home state, dragging down cops and black men with him, but I betcha' Attorneys Ayotte and Strelzin would defend him, too.

25 June 2007

KingCast presents the short version of the 2007 Franconia shooting tragedy.

This is an adjunct post to the main post which is here.

Update: NH AG Kelly Ayotte and Jeffery Strelzin hid this witness.

From p. 27 of 43-Page final report: 3 trac-phone calls made by Liko Kenney at 6:05, 6:06 and 6:07. [numbers not disclosed]

19:10:20 - Liko Kenney pulls to a cut away and stops; asks for another officer.

19:15:05 - Shooter Floyd appears on the scene after the second stop as Liko twice motions for Officer McKay to meet him back down the road at Tamarack. This will become crucial down the proverbial road. Floyd stays there even as McKay and Liko's cars are both well off the street.

19:15:42/49 -- McKay twice pushes Liko's Toyota back away from sight of witnesses in the house across the street.

19:15:53 -- Liko motions to Floyd to help as witness.

19:15:56/59 -- Without saying a single word or giving any command or directive, McKay alights from his Tahoe and immediately blasts Liko and passenger Caleb Macaulay with pepper spray and struts away like John Wayne, probably as he did it to that 110 lb. blonde girl not long ago. Liko twice says "What are you doing.... what are you DOING???"

19:15:60 -- Liko snaps and shoots McKay from his driver's seat.

Look, I'm truly sorry that Bruce McKay is dead. But I cannot excuse his actions any more than I can Liko's. And as for Shooter Floyd, well AG Ayotte already said he had no idea whether McKay was dead or alive, and he had a clear chance to retreat. Instead he didn't; he shot Liko and threatened Caleb and a police officer by the name of Phillip R. Blanchard, as the Official Report notes at p. 15-16.

To further insult our collective intelligence, there is all matter of questionable "other acts" of Liko in the report but not one mention of any complaints against McKay, and I mean NOT ONE, even though we have an alleged complaint of spousal abuse and I have direct knowledge from another attorney that he complained after McKay maced his 110lb blonde client, and we know there were issues when he maced out some kids at a public school. And I've read in the Caledonian Record that there were complaints against him. And we know he was sued and settled for threatening an area resident as well, yet NONE of this is in report. That's why I know it's a sham.

KingCast presents the biggest question of all for NH AG Kelly Ayotte in the Franconia shooting tragedy:

Dear Attorney Ayotte: Why is there no tape recording or audio of Sam Stephenson, Chuck Hebert or Connie McKenzie. All of these people were on scene and Ms. McKenzie helped try to revive Officer McKay and owned the property.

Update: NH AG Kelly Ayotte and Jeffery Strelzin hid this witness.

Please explain this as you read what will become the seminal post in this chaper of New Hampshire, United States, and World History.

This is my purpose in life, Liko and me.

BTW in the video at 19:15:53 You can clearly see Liko motion Shooter Floyd to come in as a witness, and we must wonder the selective audio given to us by WMUR, who has had a spokesperson on YouTube issue materially false statements already, as noted in this post. So strange that Shooter Floyd, with a scanner, happened on by at that time.

KingCast shows email from NH AG Ayotte to Attorney X and comments on 2007 Franconia shooting tragedy video and explains the movie, "Franconia 5/11."

Read the adjunct post.

Update: NH AG Kelly Ayotte and Jeffery Strelzin hid this witness.

In about one hour I am going to watch two men, two sentient beings, die deaths that could have been prevented, regardless from which "side" of this issue one views things. Nothing in the World will ever bring them back physically, but what we can -- and must do -- is to ask ourselves exactly three things in general:

1. What is the most disconcerting thing about this tragedy?
2. What is the best way for the community move forward with so many police and crime issues continuing, i.e. sex offenders, missing women and thievery, all documented on this blawg elsewhere.
3. If you knew Liko Kenney or Bruce McKay, what was the thing about either man that you liked the most?

There you have the essence of that portion of the KingCast movie, "Franconia 5/11," and Liko's friends, family as well as Law Enforcement personnel from the area are welcome to participate; that's why it just stuck in my craw when Governor Lynch hung up on me.

I will then, in the space below, offer my commentary on the video and related materials over the course of time. I expect this to be a rather lengthy post, obviously and could take us to production later this week.

Namaste,

Christopher King, J.D.

Update:

First and foremost I have reason to believe that Sam Stephenson and Chuck Hebert both gave TAPED statements to the police and they were first on the scene right after Floyd. And of course their statements should have been taped, it's a fresh murder investigation for Pete's sake. There is just a written statement in the AG's Report and NOTHING from C.H. Sam did say that Floyd's son said Caleb was lucky he had not been shot because he and his friend tried to run Floyd's father over.

Excuuuuse me, but Caleb was a passenger. Sounds like criminal menacing for Floyd. Again.

Second, BTW in the video at 19:15:53 you can clearly see Liko motion Shooter Floyd to come in as a witness, and we must wonder the selective audio given to us by WMUR, who has had a spokesperson on YouTube issue materially false statements already, as noted in this post. So strange that Shooter Floyd, with a scanner, happened on by at that time.

Read the comments section later to see the email from me to Attorney Strelzin I am writing, that notes that while the 2003 video plays, the 2007 does not (on 4 different machines), nor does Caleb Macaulay's taped statement play on three different machines. Fascinating. I expect a return call from him tomorrow morning ASAP noting if anyone else has had problems.

Below are the summaries of Caleb Macaulay's statement (and we know how that goes) preceded by the secret email to Attorney X, which notes that the entire investigation was indeed complete within one business day, as I noted herein. Said email also clearly notes that Shooter Floyd had no idea if Bruce McKay was dead or alive. Despite that, Floyd acknowledges at p. 20 of the 1,000pp transcript that he said nothing and just shot Liko "I could have put two directly in his heart," says Floyd.

And then Floyd threatened another cop, Philliip R. Blanchard, who came upon the scene as noted at p. 16 of the Official Report: "Easy son, I'm quicker than you."
WTF???

After that is a verbatim transcript of the tape of the Thompson family women who live directly across the street.
"The grey car was not going fast. I thought [McKay] was trying to get around it [for something else]. He made several movements (her daughter called it a "10-point turn" in her interview) to come nose to nose now facing north.... [McKay] pushed him and kept pushing him down (into the gravel area) dirt flew back the police car pushed him so strongly and just kept pushing and pushing and pushing until the grey car was beyond my view."

*********

Having now listened to the Grafton Dispatch McKay did call it in. Having now watched the video (or at least as much as WMUR let us hear and see but I bet there is more)you can see Liko was pointing McKay up the road toward Tamarack tennis, which is key because I have reason to believe the men were ordered not to have contact unless absolutely necessary. In any event, McKay did indeed mace without saying a word, and it was a lot. The autopsy note at p. 25 of the summary says "faint amount of oily residue on the right side of his face," but to me it was a plume of pepper. Ayotte reports at p.11 "[Caleb] surmised that Kenney might have driven over Cpl. McKay because he could not see as Kenney had taken most of the pepper spray."

Not to entirely justify what Liko did, but this is what I saw and I would be scared as hell too, especially if I knew that we were not supposed to have contact, and that Tahoe definitely made contact. As a matter of policing, why did McKay just blast Liko with mace and walk away, kind of like, "Take that, kid." Did anyone else see anything different?

Well, the kid didn't take it and sadly, the rest is history.

Except for the Civil Action against Floyd for what WMUR chose not to show us or let us hear.

To further insult our collective intelligence, there is all matter of questionable "other acts" of Liko in the report but not one mention of any complaints against McKay, and I mean NOT ONE, even though we have an alleged complaint of spousal abuse andI have direct knowledge from another attorney that he complained after McKay maced his 110lb blonde client, and we know there were issues when he maced out some kids at a public school.
