KingCast open letter to NH State House on Martha McLeod's HB 1428 for Bruce McKay highway, which was tabled 15-0 after vehement outrage from citizens.


Dear Concerned State Legislators:

The fact that Ms. McLeod is asking you to grant state imprimatur to the continued negative conduct of Bruce McKay when her husband refuses to even allow the public to see McKay's personnel file is ludicrous. There are matters about Bruce McKay's tenure before Grafton Superior Judge Timothy Vaughn currently pending in the Right-to-Know/FOIA action of KingCast v. NH AG Kelly Ayotte/Town of Franconia 07-E-268. Judge Vaughn, coincidentally just granted a Permanent Restraining Order against Liko Kenney's killer Gregory W. Floyd for gun threats to a neighbor. Listen to all of these hearings on YouTube right here.

Some of the things you need to be concerned about include, but are not limited to the facts that:


Bruce McKay was commonly known as a bully even by those who had no tickets issued against them by him. Watch the short film "Franconia 5/11: Injustice on Stilts."

Here is today's Caledonian Record story on HB 1428.

Other LE from Lisbon even demanded that Chief Montminy remove their frequencies from Bruce McKay's radio and that he stop speeding through town and stop trolling for tickets in his personal car. I have a copy of that letter and can JPEG it for you if you need it but it was widely reported.

Attorney Troy Watts complained of Bruce McKay's unethical behavior in OC Spraying his client and then lying about a plea agreement in Open Court; the town of Franconia has taken six months, from 27 July 2007 to the day of the 07-E-268 hearing on 10 January 2008 to admit that they have it, and then they sent me a non-functioning copy so that I couldn't get it online before the hearing.

Bruce McKay violated town policy on Use-of-Force for the Tahoe when he bashed Liko Kenney's car back, and seconds later, in his last act of official largesse, OC Sprayed Liko Kenney and Caleb Macaulay in violation of town policy as well. Read about it here.

Bruce McKay did not keep or maintain required Use of Force reports for Liko Kenney's 2003 arrest in Fox Hill Park, when such arrest was likely Unconstitutional according to Judge Cyr because the persons were seized without probable Cause. Judge Cyr issued such an order in several cases and the underlying charge in Liko Kenney's case was nol-prossed, hence the false notion that McKay asked for leniency for Liko Kenney after his arrest.
State v. Nathan Wright 03-CR-109
State v. William Miller 03-CR-012, 013, 029
State v. Kenney 03-CR-197
The case Memoranda and decisions are all JPEG'd here.

Bruce McKay overreacted in a situation between Fox Hill Park and Hillwinds Motor Inn and was allegedly suspended for that, as an Affidavit I filed in 07-E-268 shows that Chief Montminy told the Affiant that, yet the paperwork has not been provided by the town nor has the town even mentioned the incident in the records it produced.

Bruce McKay "terrorized" a woman with a non-police spec "penis shaped" knife near her labia for no lawful reason. This woman, "Ms.B" was even married to a police officer, and she holds a Criminal Justice Degree and a teaching certificate. She flat out told the town in a 13-page complaint (which went unanswered I might add)
"I recommended he be sent to a certified psychologist for cognitive testing for communication and control issues... this could cause serious problems for officer McKay or Franconia."
I have a copy of that complaint and can JPEG it for you as well. NH AG Kelly Ayotte lied to me about the presence of this complaint.

State Rep Gionet wrote me against HB 1428 as noted in this replication of his email.

I have many many other anecdotals from people who did not file complaints because they correctly figured the town would not address their concerns.

And to add insult to injury, Martha McLeod brought this legislation to bear without even contacting the members of the Franconia Recovery and Reconciliation Committee, when the primary purpose of this committee is to help the town heal, using a pragmatic approach to the entire situation. The fact that she tried to slip it past them speaks volumes about her integrity as does her insouciant remark in this email "Apparently I should be shot," and "Apparently there's a 'firestorm of activity" over the issue. And her email about me "I am not responding to his emails so he is getting more persistent" was none to friendly after I wrote her this nice letter asking for Civilian Review Boards as previously sought by

Will all due respect I was an AG in the employment section for 3 years and never saw a police officer with these sort of allegations against him. The only proper vote on this bill, in any iteration, is "NO." Let the law enforcement officers who still respect Bruce McKay erect a memorial on Law Enforcement property, which is still subsidized by the public.

For a similar story about an officer who --like McKay-- did a few Good Things, made a lot of money on traffic tickets and turned into a rogue and made his career-ended mistake on 5/11, ____ miles away when he harassed one Brian Noakes. Read this blawg post and the Corvallis Gazette-Times editorial "Candor better policy than silence."

In a few months you can watch a movie about Bruce McKay and Dave Cox, because I'm friends with Brian Noakes' family. Your vote, whichever vote you take, will be a part of that movie as well. Please vote wisely, and not out of blind faith respect for a badge, because Bruce McKay too often failed to show that badge enough respect when he wore it.

Very truly yours,

Christopher King, J.D.

Here's one of the anecdotal McKay stories from someone who has been going to Franconia for 20 years, before and after the Bruce McKay reign of terror. He's a professional man, raised a family, never been arrested by anyone at any time.

On McKay:
"He was such a ridiculous hard-ass for no reason. 'Your light's too bright', or whatever he had a hair across his ass about, they gave him carte blanche up there."

"Wow," I said.

"And one time I saw him get 22 people kicked out for no reason, just a family there with young kids, no Harleys or nothing. I hate to say he should have been killed, but........"

Christopher King said...

And an interesting comment from Topix from a medic professional who met Bruce McKay in the line of duty:

I went to school with N. Bruce Mckay in the 1970's and remember him as a decent kid with a love for sports and women. He marched to the beat of his own drummer and for the most part minded his business.

I am sorry to learn that in later years he may have turned out to be a rogue cop using his badge to bully certain citizens whom the Franconia PD may not have approved of.

Liko Kenney's murder of Bruce was indeed a horrifying spectacle. However, given Mckay's past history of abusing him, and targeting him for harassment (which many citizens in Franconia have already acknowledged), I am not surprised that the situation ended as tragically as it did.

I also believe that the man who shot Liko to death should have been charged with murder. This man, Gregory Floyd Sr., has a history of making death threats to others and appears to have killed Liko without justification.

In any event, this is a tragedy for both the Mckay and Kenney families, and will no doubt continue to be a contentious issue for years to come.

Dear Speaker of the House and all concerned legislators:

I write with all of the earnestness at my command as a former Assistant Attorney General -- employment division -- to recommend that this bill undergo further study before any action is taken.

David Campbell knows me, in fact he was at the Aldermanic meeting in November when Mayor Streeter awarded me a Mayoral Commendation for First Amendment and Right-to-Know, as noted in the blog entry as linked below.

Please review the blog entry in its entirety at your earliest convenience and you'll see why that is my recommendation.

Please contact me via email or at 603.438.8017m should you have any questions.

Very truly yours,

Christopher King, J.D.

This entire post is most persuasive in offering substance and heart for all of us who speak against Martha McLeod's request to honor McKay's less than stellar service in the manner she intends.
Our voices, near and far, and with reasoned consideration, pray for a more careful and timely review along with Christopher King.

Christopher King said...

Thanks Lynn.

The heat is on in the kitchen. I'll be on the phone to the Speaker of the House and all legislators throughout the day.

Namaste.

Chris, that is a very good, informative letter. If they ignore that, this State has more problems that I ever thought possible.

Thank you!

My only criticism is you should have used stultifying instead of ludicrous. Now if M. McLeod wants to get real she should support the idea of a GENUINE investigation, find out what really went on that evening. Ask the state legislature to reopen the case, get the attorney general, say, from Vermont to investigate Floyd, the attorney general from Maine to confirm most peoples views of McKay and then both lawmen (or women) can investigate why Liko lived in such an agitated state the months before his murder!

Christopher King said...

7:30 and 9:11

You got that right.

Namaste.

Can you forecast a date when any ruling will come from the court?

Christopher King said...

9:59: In a word, no.

Negrodamus is loathe to predict the timeframe for action of any court, much less this one in which there are so many issues at stake.

The One Thing I can pretty much guarantee, however, is an appeal from either side on something.

Namaste.

Dear State Representatives.

By now you have read Troy Watt's Complaint about the video of Bruce McKay OC Spraying Sarah and his take on McKay's ethical breach in the Courtroom, something no one accused the other celebrated officers of here in New Hampshire, Charron, Lord, Phillips, Briggs -- even though Ironically Bruce was involved policing their killings, which might at first blush guarantee his coronation.

But dig deeper and ask yourself why the State is not providing that video to me until today, too late to make it public before your discussions, even though I've been asking for it for six months and 3 days. The first one they sent me did not function, strangely.

Please read these two posts, one about the OC Spray and one about the serious issues of Gregory Floyd true role in the Franconia tragedy as even noted by Trooper Cooper.

http://christopher-king.blogspot.com/2008/01/franconia-investigator-trooper-cooper.html

Cooper on Liko's gun: "And I guess what, my question is, is what state is it gonna be in now and how did it get in that state?"

And the OC Spray video update:

Thank you for your time and attention in this matter.

Very truly yours,

Even though McKay can no longer be held responsible for his actions, it sounds to me as if there are many who could still be held responsible at the Federal level for Conspiracy to Deprive Civil Rights Under the Color of Authority.

It seems to me that, if still within the Statute of Limitations, some hot-shot U.S. Attorney should jump on this.

Christopher King said...

Well you know U.S. Attorney Mark Zuckerman specifically told me that his office would be reporting this matter to the ATF over Floyd, so let's hope for a thorough investigation now that the cat is out of the proverbial bag.

KingCast asked for that on 16 May and the State is just now catching up.

Nice.
