PREQUEL: Sergeant Evan Franklin was hammered and ran from a Bad Scene, once again.
NOTE: The Jagermeister testimony is coming later tonight. You should see the look on Officer Brazzese's face when she looks at the Margarita's check and it's like $130 for a handful of people. What irritates me is that I think 8 Jagermeister shots were ordered but nobody seems to remember doing any except her and Sergeant Franklin I believe admitted he did at least one. C'mon guys if you want the Jury to convict you have to start being honest because otherwise you're just wasting taxpayer monies. Plus you should be honest anyway, right.
Judge Brady listened intently as former LE and current Homeland Security contractor Joshua Buxbaum described the only clear word that he heard from his window at 1:30 am 29 September 2007 out behind the Revere High School where Dan Talbot lay dying:
Meanwhile Officer Stacy Brazzese admitted she and others were knocking back the Jagermeisters, in addition to whatever else everybody had that fateful night.
"The word nigger was used."
"Your group (of 5-6 I believe) ordered 29 different drinks at Margaritas"said Attorney Krupp.
"And you never identified yourself or anyone else as a police officer, did you."
Lovely. So not only were they acting like thugs, they were making racist thug statements. As a former AAG I am saddened by the Death of Officer Talbot, but I'm bloody well pissed as well and I have every right to be. So does every American, with this type of activity and racism. Citibank is most definitely racist, but I didn't expect this out of other LE. Vids coming tonight and tomorrow.
After lunch the State called in Statey Brian J. Canavin to testify about class and individual microscopic traits that the state contends conclusively show that the two 9MM casings found furthest away from the bleachers were in fact from the Hi-Point model that was reassembled from the sewer. He identified reamer chatter, and the unique handmade nature of a Hi-Point that yields certain definitive characteristics of a Hi-Point 9MM including 9 lands and grooves with a left twist in the barrel and he claimed the bullet fragment (almost but not quite visible in Prosecutor Zabin's outstretched gloved hand to the jury) was reflective of such a barrel.
I will be uploading video where he notes that he was unable to reach any degree of certainty regarding the individual characteristics of the bullet fragment that caused the fatal wound to Officer Talbot. He could only say that the size/weight/mass were consistent with ammunition that could be fired from the Hi-Point. Also, he could not establish the approach angle of the bullet hole in Officer Soto's bumpah' (see the blue rod) because of too many variables including the flat tire, possible deflection of the projectile on entry, etc. etc. so they can't tell if Officer Talbot or Soto fired that .40 cal round.
He was a solid and quite likable witness and I told the State that at the close of testimony. Now it is up to Attorney Krupp to refute that science when testimony resumes on Monday. At this point it appears that the State is almost 1/3 of the way home:
The fatal bullet might be linked to the Hi-Point. Assuming arguendo that the Jury buys that, there is the rest of the journey: Second, the Hi-Point has to be in Robert Iacoviello's hands and third, he must possess the
PS: It's all about my parents and Mother Ann, to whom my life's work is dedicated. Gosh I can't believe how young I looked at my '93 law school graduation, LOL. The ravages of time, and of fighting The Man will take it out on you!!! Anyway thank you, love you, love you thank you for letting me have the Audacity of Hope to believe I could craft my own World, and that is happening right now in more ways than this. No further comment -- loose lips sink ships.
