KingCast says cops like Bruce McKay and Joseph Gearty don't deserve roads named after them, they are backseat Civil Rights violators and torturers.

You can hear me tell NH Senate Sponsor Robert Letourneau all about it (YouTube video) in last year's Senate hearing, SB154 passed the Senate but that's because it was rammed through by LE, as noted by Franconia area Senator Gallus in this 14 Jan 2010 Union Leader story.
"Take a look at that bill," Gallus, a Republican from Berlin, said after yesterday's session. "There's not a sponsor within 100 miles of the North Country. That bill basically was pushed through by the law enforcement community, and that's fine to some degree. But the issue in the North Country has split that community in both Franconia and Easton for some time."

When it gets to the House it should be summarily shut down the same way that area Rep. Martha McLeod's attempt -- HB1428 -- was shut down 2 years ago after she lied and deceitfully tried to slip it through without telling ANYONE in North Country.

Bruce McKay tortured and tormented a woman with a knife near her privates while she was strapped into the back seat of his cruiser (she beat the DUI case BTW and wrote a 10 page complaint) and Franconia didn't even investigate it, and then AG's office lied to me and said they didn't have a receipt of that complaint when in fact they did have it and failed to act. Bruce McKay's blood is on their hands; the guy died in flagrante delicto, violating 7 pursuit and OC Spray policies as noted at Casey Sherman's book launch for "Bad Blood: Freedom and Death in the White Mountains."

From what I see in the UL comments section (said comment not having been removed as Defamatory) Trooper Gearty didn't get a road named after himself either, because he was engaged in similar back seat shenanigans -- with a belt around a prisoner's neck -- when he died.

As a former AAG, I abhor bad cops. They ruin it for everybody else who is out there busting their ass trying to do it the Right Way. There is an LE with whom I have vigorous disagreements (consonant with the purpose of the First Amendment of course) who said he would come to my next radio or TV spot and have an open discussion about these issues, I am moving to a new format and hope to see him soon.

If Sherman didn't make any money from the book do you think he would care so much. Cpl mckay did notviolate any policies. Officers discretion. His safety was in jeopardy the moment he observed liko driving down rt 116 at a high rate of speed. The oc was a use of non lethal force. Retaliation was fatal. So tell me again his safety was not on the line.

Bruce McKay violated known and stated SOPs on that day and I have published them and you can clearly see that but if you want me to do it again I will.

Nah, no need to you'll just deny it again, let's try something new:

You are dead wrong on the "high rate of speed" don't you know I've read the entire file several times over dude?

Here's what's up from Susan Thompson's interview dude.

"The grey car was not going fast. I thought [McKay] was trying to get around it [for something else]. He made several movements (her daughter called it a "10-point turn" in her interview) to come nose to nose now facing north.... [McKay] pushed him and kept pushing him down (into the gravel area) dirt flew back the police car pushed him so strongly and just kept pushing and pushing and pushing until the grey car was beyond my view."

You got that?

Good.

PS: As to Casey Sherman's motivations, I really couldn't care less. The guy is a writer and that's what he does. Brad Whipple, Casey and I vehemently agree on some things and vehemently disagree on others, what's your point?

Nothing.

But what is cool, is that he says something Big is on the horizon at his FB page, I guess you'll just have to wait, as will I, ahem.

Git yer popcorn, son.

Christopher King said...

And of course you do know that the OC was misused as well.

The Tahoe bash was only authorized in circumstances when deadly force was authorized. No jury in the World would say that McKay was authorized to use deadly force when he based Liko's car back 40 feet.

Use of Chemical Agents
II. Nondeadly
C (5) In all situations involving use of chemical agents, suspects should be given adequate warning of their imminent use and should be afforded time to respond to lawful commands.


So what you're now going to tell me that too, was within McKay's discretion?

Why on Earth would McKay pull a John Wayne like that and not give a lawful command. Why did Floyd ignore Liko and Caleb when they motioned to him -- Caleb said he made eye contact with Floyd and wanted him to be a witness but got no response -- you are aware of that, right?

You would be if you read the whole report, as I did.

It was right in there, along with Susan Thompson's statements.

I believe the comment has not been removed as it would be if it were patently false, as I stated.

Did I stammer?

And have you nothing to say about the OC Spray violations?

Oh, wait.

Officer's discrtion, right.

-The KingCaster.

Christopher King said...

PS: 8:06

I will disbelieve Mr. Haas when you send me a picture of a road named after Gearty, how about that.

When you do that, I will post a huge banner picture of it right here on my blog, sound fair?

-The KingCaster.

Christopher King said...

5:47 8:06

You cats got anything more to say?

Got a road named after Gearty so you can shut me TFU?

Got anything more substantial than what I showed you from Susan Thompson that clearly says Liko Kenney was NOT driving at a "high rate of speed?"

Yah, that's what I thought.

-The KingCaster.

Anonymous said...

Ms. Thompson obseved liko driving after the initial stop. At that point it was considered failure to stop. Arrestable offense. Lights and sirens are a lawful command . Hence next step would be oc spray. Liko needed to be boxed in to prevent harm to the officer as well as passerbys. Liko was clearly a danger to society. Remember cpl mckay responded with non lethal force. Probably felt bad for him just like he did in court. Remember the 15 day sentence. Mckay was a good cop and a good man.

Christopher King said...

The problem is I know for fact that the speed on McKay's radar was NOT Liko's car.

The problem is I know for fact that McKay was not "by the book" because the town SOP was to let Liko go and not bash his car over a simple vehicular registration.

The problem is I know for fact that McKay violated the OC Spray policy, what part of this did you miss, guy:


Use of Chemical Agents
II. Nondeadly
C (5) In all situations involving use of chemical agents, suspects should be given adequate warning of their imminent use and should be afforded time to respond to lawful commands.


********

McKay was "lenient" in Court because he knew he got away with violating Liko Kenney's Civil Rights at Fox Hill Park, that's why the underlying marijuana pipe found (that was not in use) was tossed, and that's why Judge Cyr tossed the other Fox Hill cases, read it right here my friend.

State v. Nathan Wright 03-CR-109

State v. William Miller 03-CR-012, 013, 029

You speak in generalities, I speak in specifics.

Your move.

Next time a cop tells me to do something I am going to shoot him in the back 5 times. Then I will tell the judge chris king said it was ok. You stupid fool!!!!

Christopher King said...

Next time you have coke on your nose tell them Joey Fasano's lawyer said it was OK.

Jackass.

-The KingCaster.

PS: If you're a cop and you specifically violate protocol designed to de-escalate situations when you specifically know that someone has emotional issues, well then hell yeah you just might get your ass capped.

And you know what else?

I got Jamaican friends who are LE in the area, and when they saw the video they said "Shit I might have shot that MF too," same thing as Bill Christy said, fool.

GOTCHA!

Do you even know what the he'll you are talking about? Who the he'll is fasano? And congratulations on having Jamaican friends. You do realizeyou are a pion that nobody listens to right? Didn't that by trooper already school you on your other blog. Why have you not killed yourself yet?

Christopher King said...

Fasano, look it up, douchebag what are you friggin' illiterate.

Nope, no State Trooper has schooled me anywhere, homeboy.

I had some tool tell me they were going to produce a directive on Hell's Angels that supports Bruce McKay's Freak Out at Hillwinds but alas, that has not yet materialized.

L8r H8r.

Your scattered Franconia nh all the way to Quincy, ma. You have to stick your nose in everything? As far as that directive it was a memo and I also know it went out. No freakout session at the hillwinds just an officer in need of assistance. It was not the hells angels mckay encountered but mckay wasn't gang unit or intell. So you can't fault him for not knowing who he was dealing with, or you probably can.

Anonymous said...

By the way cpl. Mckay is and always will be one of us. As far as your buddy whipple, he no longer is. Ask around big mouth. Whipple will not have the turnout cpl. Mckay did when he dies. He buried himself. If trooper z is monitoring this I have a memo for you to shut this attention seeking loser up. Not lowering myself to send it to this dick. Give me a fax#

"One of us abusive jackass LE" is what you meant to say.

Can't fault McKay for anything, can you?

Nope. He's your Golden Boy. And Angela is just some b*tch who needed to be put in her place, right?

Tool.

Here's your fax number Big Fella,

617.262.6265 I'll be checking for it later today.

....and watch your mouth up in here, what you can't make a point without cursing?

Mouth breather.

Steve Perkins said...

Whether McKay is guilty or not is one specific matter to which I do not wish to address. Don't care to get in that hunt. I think anyone, and by that I mean anyone with a semblance of common sense, could recognize that both parties played some part in the ongoing feud between Kenney and McKay.

What I do wish to address...guilt vs responsibility. Whether McKay bears any degree of guilt in the final, life-ending incident is, again, not the point here. But there is no doubt, whether guilty or not, he was in large part responsible. Simple, old-school analogy...not meaning to compare Kenney to Charles Manson, by any stretch, but just for the purpose of illustration...if I know that Charles Manson does not like me at all, feels I have wronged him in the past, and I proceed to prod him with a stick, am I going to be surprised when a band of teenage girls show up at my doorstep carrying butcher knives?

A 40-something year old public servant and professional absolutely, positively must know how to handle troubled individuals and tense situations with tact, savvy, and professionalism. If not, then they are poorly equipped to do their job and by placing themselves in a position of danger despite that poor judgment and ability they are, in effect, largely responsible for their own fate.

And, no, I am not a liberal hippie, not that there is anything wrong with that. I am a 40-something year old physician, a specialist. I am mostly conservative. I have a family, own a home, live in the heart of the conservative midwest. But anyone that denies some degree of responsibility on the part of McKay and gives the blanket "he'll always be one of us" without recognizing his culpability in the ongoing feud and in the final encounter is, well, either relying solely on an emotional bond or they are incapable (or unwilling) of understanding the dynamic of the situation.

No, it doesn't take specifics to analyze the situation in terms of responsibility. Perhaps in terms of guilt, but there is little room for doubt that McKay bears a portion of the responsibility. When I see that responsibility dismissed by others and blind loyalties extended, I understand from an emotional point of view, but I also recognize that opinion as wholly biased and worthy of dismissal itself.

Public servant, professional. Been there, done that. You had better be equipped, capable, and WILLING to act with tact, savvy, reason, judgment, and common sense in dealing with all manner of individuals and tense situations. If not, you are not a capable professional and have no business in that particular role. An expired registration? Come on now, people. Think before posting, it will serve you well in avoiding embarrassment.

So Steve, if you happen to misdiagnose a patient, which happens quite frequently you should be shot in the back four times. And then someone should run over you with a vehicle. Are you kidding me? And that fax# was for the trooper not you king loser. As i previously stated i would not lower myself to the standard of providing you any information. Oh I forgot, you know everything anyway. Please! A police officer was serving and protecting the citizens of Franconia when he was violently gunned down by a air draining maggot, may he burn in hell ! No registration= no insurance. A danger to any law abiding citizen who would have been struck by this vodka slugging pot smoking piece of shit.

Well-put. It is going to be my new post for Monday, 8 March 2010.

The Parallel would be if Steve raped a patient who was put under.

Bruce McKay was a jackass cop, but to you he's a hero and you get off on hating Brad Whipple but as I told you, Brad Whipple doesn't care about you.

Nor do I.

Send the friggin' memo already, so I can show the World (again) what an idiot Bruce McKay was.

Also, Montminy told the mother of an affected child that McKay received some type of reprimand about this situation, so either Montminy is a liar or you are wrong, either way Franconia PD sucks.

GOTCHA!

PS: What, you're gonna tell me next that Lisbon PD sucks too because they banned McKay from trolling on their frequencies?

GOTCHA again, fool.

Also, the pics say it all:

It's so obvious that Kelly Ayotte lied in her official report that it hurts. From the shattered glass inside the passenger compartment you can see that Floyd shot the window out (as Caleb said he did) and therefore never said a word to Liko Kenney -- who was trying to get home until Floyd delivered that windshield bullet that Kelly and her crew never analysed.

Or if they did, they never explained it to the World public, because it would destroy their theory of the case.

Cover up.

I can't tell from the video if whipple is sober, or on one ofhis usual benders. Nice accomplice. Pretty obvious he doesnt care what anyone in LE thinks about him. Siding with you. Fraternal suicide.

I tend to think there is nothing that will shut you up. Your that little weasel that won't go away. Fortunately there is an information highway that is user friendly. People know all about you. You should consider yourself lucky you are not in jail. Taking a trip to Ohio anytime soon? Filthy scum

Where's the memo jackass?

Everything will be cleared up in Ohio shortly, My Friend, thanks for your care and concern!

As to the rest of whatever the hell you are talking about, it's just more noise.

No shut me up and show me that road named after Joseph Gearty.

You can't, just as you can't make the fact that Bruce McKay was an abusive cop go away.

Boo.

Yah.

It is good to see you spending so much time in here, dealing with me, a guy who is just so damn inconsequential.

And nobody knows "all about you" because you're too much of weasel to state your identity, because you're a punk LE just like Bruce.

KingCast says Franconia did the Right Thing, exercised its Constitutional Freedoms to deny Russell Cumbee's Rte. 18 Bruce McKay Highway.

Sooooo..... the vote was in about 10:30 and it was about 90-70; on to the House next, and we know what it already said.

Here's your back story one and two, and that's all I need to say. Well not quite.... but I think Mr. Cumbee says it so much better than I every could because remember to him, I'm just "that annoying blogger....." He says:

"Newsflash, Free Speech really does improve people's lives."

So I'm like Paul McCartney, bro' listnin' to what the Man says..... the wonder of it all, baby... yeah yeah yeah... woo hoo....

Meanwhile enjoy this post about a questionable Judge in Boston.

"Should be shot"? Of course not, hence the difference between "guilt" and "responsibility". If I have a young male patient that I know or suspect of being a loose cannon or one that I suspect bears a grudge against me, should I handle that individual differently than a docile, submissive counterpart, especially in a tense situation? It depends on whether I wish to place myself and the patient at greater risk of physical harm. It's not about rights. No, my strong-arming the patient would not give him the right to shoot me, but it certainly does place me at an unnecessarily greater risk, like it or not.

It is my responsibility to approach the situation utilizing skills and training in handling difficult individuals in stressful situations in a manner that will defuse the situation, not inflame it. If I choose not to utilize those skills, I am not guilty of anything, but I can't be surprised when I find myself being assaulted by the individual. It's just human nature, you can't handle all situations and individuals in a like manner and not expect repercussions.

If I'm in any field in which I deal with the public, I have to know how to deal with all manner of individuals. If I don't possess those skills or choose to ignore them, perhaps I am being fair and equitable in approaching all individuals the same, but I can't be surprised with an adverse outcome.

No, I'm not suggesting McKay is guilty of anything or that he deserved what he got. What I am suggesting is that by approaching all situations and individuals in the same manner, he placed himself in a position where there was a greater likelihood of things escalating. Responsibility does not equal guilt nor does it imply sole responsibility. But failure to consider individual characteristics or situational awareness in any field in which there is an interface with the public is a recipe for conflict.

Steve Perkins said...

Another observation, and I might be misinterpreting, but based on the following wording...

C (5) In all situations involving use of chemical agents, suspects should be given adequate warning of their imminent use and should be afforded time to respond to lawful command.

Lights and sirens might well be a lawful command, but the above excerpt specifically notes that "in ALL situations suspects should be given adequate warning of their (chemical agents) imminent use".

That's a very specific wording...it suggests that there must be a specific warning of the use of the chemical agent, not an implied warning such as lights and sirens. "Should be given adequate warning of their imminent use"...that reads "must be expressly informed that a chemical agent is about to be employed".

There might have been lawful commands to stop his vehicle and not flee officers, but the specific warning of the imminent use of chemical agents does not seem to have been applied.

Christopher King said...

Steve,

Thank you for your even-handed commentary.

You will never be able to talk to some people.... hell some of them are busy threatening to cause me grievous bodily harm because they don't like what I say or do, so obviously we can only do so much to educate the newbies who visit.
