KingCast epiphany on Liko Kenney's 5/11 request for another officer: He was legally correct, and Bruce McKay was wrong.

Read this carefully, along with Bill Kenney's letter to NH Speaker of the House Terie Norelli. Remember Liko was correct in 2003 as well given the point at which McKay told him on video that he was "seized." And wait until we get our mitts on that original dash cam video, I got my guy who used to run a public access station, and a former LE in tow for that experience, yah. Prolly on 15 April, 2008. It's going to get uglier before it gets better, I'll tell you that.

And guess what? I just received from a lil' birdy in the snail mail a hard copy of Art McGrath's 2 April 2008 story in the Littleton Courier that notes the Town had policies that Corporal McKay
"clearly violated in the car chase that led up to his death."

Scans on Sunday, maybe 2:00p.

Second is Policy D: Pursuit Tactics:
(3) Officer shall not attempt to overtake a fleeing vehicle.

(4) Officers may not intentionally use their vehicle to bump or ram the suspect's vehicle in order to force the vehicle to stop or to be pushed into a ditch.

Pursuit shall be immediately terminated in any of the following circumstances:

(E) The suspects identity has been established to the point that later apprehension can be accomplished, and there is no longer any need for immediate apprehension.

What part of that did McKay not understand? Over a damn inspection sticker? Something in the water does not compute. I hate this guy -- he also violated the OC Spray policies and then he died.

And this just in (again): Remember the Tim Stephenson complaint and lawsuit against McKay? This is the sanitized version but the Real Deal you can't find on the Internet anymore was that McKay put his hand on the butt of his service gun and told Tim he was gonna do "whatever it took" to get him out of town, oh yah.

Remember folks, NH AG Kelly Ayotte was 99% certainly aware of these policies.

She just played fast and loose with the Law; thought nobody would catch her.

She almost got away with it but someone or another the shit's gonna' hit the fan, yah.

Police Harassment occurs when:
* A police officer escalates an encounter more than is necessary to control a situation, thus making those involved feel threatened without purpose.
* A police officer makes a comment or remark no decent person would make because they can hide behind their badges and billy clubs and make those statements.
* An officer uses more physical force than is necessary to subdue someone.
Police Officers, being the mature adults that they aren't, usually victimize children or minorities, as they know they are the most likely to be ignored.
Bear in mind when you are being harassed: do not try to reason. Police officers have been trained in intimidation and escalation - they can make the situation as intense as is necessary to win, even if it means kicking the shit out of you. Get a name and a badge number, and fight back, and fight back hard.
Do be careful how you fight back, though, as cops tend to stick together. You get one in trouble, six get you in trouble. They can always find a reason to pull you over, waste your time, ticket you and even arrest you.
Not all cops are bad - but experience and study have taught me one thing: it's a safe bet that the next one you meet will be. So be careful.

Sounds like "Officer GOTCHA" to me.
