Good Day folks.... you better get the Blackstonian/KingCast update here after you watch the Dan Conley summary movie above, Peace. In February, 2009 Dan Conley refused to speak to a former State AAG and newspaper editor who blogged 35 videos of a contentious murder trial in the death of Revere Officer Daniel Talbot. In this YouTube video he put his finger in this black man's face and asked him for "credentials" even though he was aware that Judge Patrick Brady had given the man such credentials to roll video, take audio and still pictures and to provide commentary.
Conley, like a complete racist, First-Amendment-bashing jackass, turned to Seth Daniel immediately after disrespecting me and asked him if he had any questions, but the funny thing is, Seth and the Revere Journal have even used my courtroom photographs.
Mr. Bernstein shed some light on why DA Conley gets so pissy when you challenge him, particularly when he knows you've been a successful trial lawyer. Here's a 2005 Story by Bernstein "The Worst Homicide Squad in the Country."
Boston also has an unusually high number of convictions reversed on appeal or vacated as wrongful San Francisco, for instance, has released two people wrongfully convicted of murder in the past 15 years; Boston released that many last year alone.
Simply put, the BPD's homicide unit has the worst track record of any big-city police department in the country.
What's more, certain murders are even less likely to be solved. When the victim is a black man aged 17 to 35 as is the case in nearly half of all Boston homicides the arrest rate over the past six years is just 31 percent. (The map on this page shows how this has played out since the start of 2004, in the roughly six-square-mile patch of Dorchester, Mattapan, and Roxbury where almost half of the city's killings take place and where hardly any get solved.)
And the bit with the fingerprint lab is mind-numbing, read the comments for that piece.
Ready for more yet?
In homicides committed from 2000 to 2002, for instance, the BPD homicide unit made arrests in every case with a female victim, every case with a victim younger than 17, and in all but one case with a white, non-Hispanic victim.
This huge disparity in homicide-solution rates based on the race, gender, or age of the victim simply does not exist in most other cities..... (more in the comments)
Not that Dan Conley really cares because he thinks he can ignore a black man at will. Dan Conley is indeed a fascist, racist pig who - as I've stated - hates the First Amendment. That's why the Phoenix gave him the Muzzle Award in 2003 for supporting the prosecution of a black man who was passing anti-war information in honor of Dr. Martin Luther Coon (errr.. sorry, that's Conley-speak, I mean King, like my last name).
As Naro has observed, it seems clear that police, responding to a call about the confrontation, saw a white, uniformed National Guardsman and a black, dashiki-clad man yelling at each other and did what came naturally: they arrested the black man, got physical with him, and then claimed he had assaulted them. Conley, as prosecutors are wont to do, declined to question the veracity of the police account.
"Free speech," Van Der Meer told Lombardi, "is not a criminal act." Unfortunately, on one day in April 2003, it was.

KingCast: Just the facts, shown in video. I look forward to round two.
