KingCast quick review of Fox TV story on Casey Sherman's "Bad Blood: Freedom and Death in the White Mountains."

The bias of the host was patent in the way she says
“Veteran police officer came face to face with the town slacker -- Hippy Kid,”

Never mind the fact that Liko Kenney was happily and gainfully employed at Merrill’s Agway.

Never mind the FACT that Bruce McKay has a horrible complaint history, some of which was never set forth to the general public, including complaints from the town fire department that they were afraid of Bruce McKay. No mention of any of that, of course, but that is the whole point that leads to Casey’s point, as he correctly notes: “police shooter has just as much support as the officer,” and he was good to mention the drug cocktail that Gregory Floyd was on, along with Floyd's disturbing statements “I kill for the government,” and “I’ve killed 43 people….”

You know most of my points have been made in this post from your book opening, and in this post with KingCast YouTube video in the classroom of Randolph Lieutenant George McNeil.

Let’s see that Franconia book signing soon.
Peace Casey.

"King certainly doesn't represent the community nor is he a spokesperson for the people. He has a small group of followers who do his bidding for him.
From what I gather in my travels the last two days the majority of the people have moved on and while they will never forget what happened they are living and enjoying their lives as they did before the tragedy.
Someone I was talking with asked why an outsider was so interested in what happened in their small town and why he is so intent on keeping the wound open and raw.
So IMO the answer would be NO he is not wanted.
Bill, the more he persecutes and harrasses Floyd the more the people are beginning to turn on him. Just look at WMUR comments.
Floyd has more people behind him now than he knows. They believe he did the only thing he could have done that day to try to save a police officers life and to also protect his own life after seeing the officer shot numerous times in the back/side."

Yep.

1. The video contains a hyperlink and embed code for everybody to use.

2. My use of the photo of Bruce McKay with the international red strike through is protected through the Fair Use Doctrine.

Peace.

I doubt it is protected through the fair use doctrine, another claim you like to bullshit people about. You got some nerve commenting about a journalists bias. You have done nothing but presented a totally biased picture about the case since you became involved. You still try to justify a dope smoking punk shooting a law enforcement officer in the back as he was retreating....a big mouth coward defending a dope smoking coward.

Christopher King said...

Oh, it is indeed protected by Fair Use and more because Bruce McKay was a public official you Big Dummy.

You can make all the baseless allegations against me that you want to jackass, but the bottom line is that you know NOTHING about First Amendment Law, and I have won each and every First Amendment Challenge to this blog.

You don't know dookie, remember that stupid Utah case you brought up that actually works in my favor LOL.

Tool.

Dude we don't even know who "wowzer" is nor do we even know if that person or persons is from North Country, just another Internet Blow Hard.

Here's what Troy Watts, Esq. had to say:

*******

Mr. King:

Thank you so much for devoting so much quality, time, energy, and rhetoric in relation to what's going on in Franconia, not to mention the Constitution. I knew both Liko and Cpl. McKay through my law practice in North Woodstock (you probably drive past here every time on your way to Franconia). Less than a year after I started my practice, about four years ago, Liko contacted me in relation to his dealings with Cpl. McKay. I met with him for about two hours, and was left thinking that there was something very fishy going on up there in Franconia with Cpl. McKay. Nevertheless, I always try to give the unknkown the benefit of the doubt. I thought Liko might have just been being a little paranoid, or may have skewed the facts a bit as clients on the receiving end of police work so often do.

I now know better.

I never ended up taking Liko's case.. for two reasons I guess: 1) I was a new attorney and deep down didn't feel I had the intellectual or credibility horsepower to start suing the police right out of the gate; it wouldn't do him justice.. and 2) my client-to-be had no money... I spoke with Liko's parents in Hawaii on several occasions, and they seemed to want to help, but it just never happened.

Years later, I represented a young lady who was stopped, arrested, and subsequently maced in Franconia by McKay, trampling over the fourth amendment in the process as usual. I still have that video. It is appalling.

When we finally got to the hearing on that one, I came to terms with McKay regarding a plea. I got to the favorable plea by telling him that I absolutely thought that the judge needed to see how "lawful" the arrest was. He caved on the plea real fast. The guy was incapable of diffusing a spent matchstick, much less an actual traffic stop with a dangerous 110-pound blond woman.

Then, we're standing up in front of the judge, about a half-hour later, McKay tells him we've entered into a plea that was far worse than the one we negotiated! Worse, he'd already drawn up the revised complaint and submitted it to the Court for approval without me seeing it. I was REALLY pissed! I've never had anyone in a prosecutorial funciton do anything but EXACTLY what they say they're going to do when it comes to a negotiated disposition. Apparently I was so pissed that the judge threatened me with contempt... Another first!

Long and short of it, I wrote a long letter of grievance to both the Chief of the PD and to the County AG's office, explaining the principle that the system depends on the integrity of the officers of the Court.. that McKay didn't get it... yada yada yada, which resulted of course in them saying basically to pound sand, but at least I got it off my chest.

In sum... I wish I had gone after him then and gotten him more on the public's radar screen, and have vowed to never again avoid a pro bono case that screams for needed justice. The reason I'm writing? I pledge any support you may need in pursuing this one to the end. Briefs, research, letters, whatever. You are da MAN!!

Very Truly Yours,

You don't know who Wowzer is or where they live but I do, and what was written is truthful and genuine, and is a fair and balanced view shared by the majority of people in the immediate area of Franconia, and the North Country.

From Troy Watt's letter:
I never ended up taking Liko's case.. for two reasons I guess: 1) I was a new attorney and deep down didn't feel I had the intellectual or credibility horsepower to start suing the police right out of the gate; it wouldn't do him justice.. and 2) my client-to-be had no money... I spoke with Liko's parents in Hawaii on several occasions, and they seemed to want to help, but it just never happened.

The blood and deaths of Cpl. McKay and Liko Kenney are on Davey and Michele Kenney. They did nothing to help their son, and you will never understand what it means to be a parent... or how far a parent will go for their children... so don't even attempt to make some feeble ass excuse for their lack of concern or effort to help their son who murdered a police officer.

So first I'm not good with Davey or Michele Kenney, and you were wrong.

Now "wowzer" speaks for the community.

Was "wowzer" on the Recovery and Reconciliation Committee?

I am disappointed that thepublic face of the law enforcement community appears to continue to condone and support the actions of Officer McKay in this tragedy.

It still appears the Attorney General and her colleagues, in their haste to provide a save haven for someone who reportedly killed a cop killer, left a dangerous residue, that will undoubtedly erupt again at some time in the future. I am attaching a copy of some paperwork that was available online that refers to Gregory Floyd’s past conviction in Georgia for PCP. I have also provided an information sheet from the National Institute of Drug Abuse that summarizes the dangers to a user of this drug. It is well known that PCP is often sprinkled on marijuana and then smoked.


On information and belief, Mr. Harwood also wrote this email to Union Leader State reporter Tom Fahey, as well as this follow up, where you can read the lawsuit and see that the local papers closest to this case have afforded coverage to the pending lawsuit.

Tom,

I just got a copy of an e-mail from Chris King that he sent to you. I am pretty sure he picked up my messages to the AG’s office that were less than complimentary re their investigation. However I have been following his blog since May and it seems he is the only one in the print and electronic media , with any brass to go after the real story.

You've said what you had to say:

"Seems to me the State wanted to close the chapter on this and declare the officer and Mr. Floyd as heroes and try to paint Liko as some sort of serial killer. I don't feel protected by the Police, I feel intimidated by the Police."

past tense "was" a public official. Contrary to what you believe you aren't al the knowledgeable about the law. Your cases won if they were translated into an ERA for hits at bat would get you sent back to the minors...just like Ohio suspending your license to practice law. I witnessed you first hand in action, you aren't anywhere close to being as good as you think you are.

Never said I was God's Gift.

But I most certainly was competent, and I won the Big Ones like Michael Isreal's police abuse case.

Hell, even though the Courts ruled that I "lost" one of Jerry Doyle's cases the man still got what he wanted after 8 months of silence:

The right to speak before City Council.

41 F.Supp.2d 765 S.D.Ohio,1998.

Au contraire mon frere, my batting average on cases won or settled to the satisfaction of the client would have me on the All-Star team.

Oh yah a Word about Wowzer, who showed up and acted like a jackass on Patric McCarthy's forum, the same way that Billy Christy did, as he went on to say that he encourage an early death for me as noted here.

It's, not about you or King. Get over it. The only moral response from you should be to question why is NH not responding to MA US Attorney's office?
Got it?
Ask.... why?

Agreed, your posts make you seem ignorant Wowzer. That is not at all the issue of this thread.

True that. Her agenda make her appear to be a current or former North Country elected NH Gov official. Defend all things NH and fervently lash out at those who may question the status quo or the veracity of NH LE.

Exactly right. This transparent response gives all the more reason to ask why would a resident of NH not question the inactions of LE in the name of an innocent little boy?
