Remember, Sherman was assigned to the story from the get-go. He is watching the Bruce McKay dash cam video with his peers. Remember, I have the sound file from the ORIGINAL tape that I successfully sued Kelly Ayotte to review. You should have been in THAT room when my film maker and I dubbed it into our machines.
Anyway first read the policies that Bruce McKay violated, as I documented some time ago:
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.
Now read Casey Sherman's interpretation with his colleagues.
167: "The sheer violence of the collision stunned all of those watching it." [See investigative file photos below]
167: "...[McKay] doused [Liko] and [Caleb Macaulay] with what looked to be the entire canister of pepper spray. My colleagues and I let out another collective groan as we watched Liko's head disappear under the orange fog."
168: "There are many questions to be answered in this case, but it becomes much clearer that the officer's actions were overaggressive and had certainly contributed to his own death." [KingCast observation: That's why former AG Kelly Ayotte and the Franconia PD failed to analyse the (im)propriety of the final traffic stop, it was a loser for them, a real non-starter. But yet it is THEIR JOB TO DO SO. Now the U.S. House or Senate will have to step in when Kelly runs for Senate weighed down with this junk in her trunk.
143: Ayotte's speedy decision to absolve Floyd of any wrongdoing is peculiar, given the amount of prescription drugs in his system, his violent past and the fact that he was forbidden by law from using a firearm (KingCast observation: Apparently not under NH Law, but certainly under 18 U.S.C. 922(g)(1), which then Senator Joe Biden told me he would vigorously enforce once he was in office. Look at the picture of us talk about it in Nashua.
Page uncertain, quoting medical/LE: "Bruce's body is evidence." Yep, so that's why we needed to see the reports about the GSR on Liko Kenney's clothing, on Caleb Macaulay's clothing, on Bruce McKay's clothing/hands and to a lesser extent, Gregory Floyd's clothing/hands. But Kelly Ayotte told me and the Court that no such documents existed. That belies credibility as it is in the protocol to collect that information. Who is she fooling?
174: On the OC Spraying of Sarah, brought to you through KingCast litigation: "The video was painful to watch. Why did McKay allow a simple request for shin guards to devolve into a violent struggle?" [Note: he threatened his own co-workers, read the letters from Fire Chief Flanders right here, para. 4].
"[McKay said]: If you ever touch my cruiser again you will be in more trouble than you can handle." Then he went south through the accident scene at a high rate of speed that was "totally uncalled for." Mr. Whitcomb was "curious why he was even at the scene as I don't recall hearing anyone involved ever calling for him."
I have read further, and there are more congratulatory and appreciative comments about people like Brad Whipple in me in addition to what I mentioned yesterday, but remember I'm nobody important here, just a guy with a nice computer, a nice camera, and a free mind and spirit. That's why I can dig a lot about Liko Kenney, and that's why the establishment typically hates on people like us, to varying degrees. Sometimes it is the establishment -- and not us -- that has the growing to do.
To wit, read what a forensic specialist said about the Michael Paulhus "investigation"conducted and maintained under Kelly Ayotte's auspices, relative to a case where a cop suspiciously shot a motorist and there was no real forensic study and the evidence was even destroyed:
Nice work Kelly don't let the doorknob hitcha'.
