KingCast presents: Gotham City part deux, or a Get Out of Jail pass for 'Batman' Jason Watson......
I warned you on 30 March 2010 about the fallout from the Dan Talbot murder trial for which I provided more in courtroom camera and analysis than any other media outlet.
Well the fallout is here today with Federal District Judge Tauro giving Mr. watson time served -- a mere 31 months out of a possible 180 months -- for his repeat offenses and current gun brokering charges. The other blokes drew 150 months and the government asked for downward departure to 75 months. But Tauro topped it all, not even HALF of the government's recommendation while using the word "altruism." Wow.
Why the "Batman" and "Gotham City" theme? Well that's 'cos Mr. Watson had so many A&B cases with a baseball bat that "Batman" became his unofficial name. Beat a 60 year-old man senseless and break his bones? No problem. Involved in a manslaughter situation? No problem? Threaten to shoot the father of the mother of your child in the fucking face so you got yourself a Restraining Order? No problem, you're rehabilitated, dude..... Just provide some information that could get someone convicted. Here's Gotham City 1.
