KingCast says "I told you so.....again....." Revere Sgt. Evan Franklin's buddy Todd Randall arrested by the FBI for attempting to fix a case, he and Franklin have been bad apples since cadet school.
Update: Special thanks to the POS cracker who had dubbed me "The venomous eggplant," over at the Revere Journal. I will now reserve that name in blogger and export the content of this journal into that one and duplicate the posts, I love it. Here it is! Funny I always knew I was the Prodigal Son, but Venomous Eggplant, that's fucking great hahahaa... By they way, if you're Sicilian... You're a nigger. True Romance tells us this.
In the groundbreaking KingCast Dan Talbot Murder Trial coverage (36 YouTube videos) we all remember the Danny Soto magic bullet that allegedly landed in the crevice of a Gatorade Bottle, yet never even scored it. I shoot guns, and anyone who shoots guns knows that is complete malarky. Well that was all false and Bad Faith testimony but quite indicative of a very troubled police force. As you prepare to read this, recall that Todd Randall and Evan Franklin both ran from the scene of an accident years ago as cadets and got reinstated because of Randall's connections. The first KingCast "Told you so" journal entry from 26 April 2008 and Daily Item coverage. Franklin was fired after his yellow streak led him to drunkenly flee the Dan Talbot murder scene, I wish I had my HD camera back then so you could see the sweat pumping off of his brow but it was copious. In point of fact, and I have substantial reason to believe that there was more than liquor involved in that proceeding. Let's just say I have my sources but the bottom line is that these cats, like Franconia's Norman Bruce McKay, never should have been LE in the first place, and I say that as a former LE Attorney.
The FBI concurs:
A Revere police officer was charged with lying to FBI agents in a public corruption case, in which the FBI said it videotaped him taking a $200 bribe and agreeing to quash a pending criminal case.
Officer Todd P. Randall, 40, was arrested at his True Street home yesterday morning, according to the U.S. Justice Department.
Randall was charged in federal court with lying to the FBI. Efforts to reach Randall and a lawyer were unsuccessful yesterday.
“Mr. Randall’s alleged criminal actions and subsequent false statements regarding his role in an ongoing public corruption investigation are an injustice to the thousands of honest and trustworthy federal, state and local law enforcement officers who work in Massachusetts,” FBI Special Agent Richard DesLauriers said in a statement.
According to the FBI’s complaint, on Jan. 22, 2010, Randall was on duty and in uniform when he
drove his police cruiser to the Everett home of an FBI informant. There, the FBI affidavit said, he took $200, and “explained the efforts he would make to compromise a pending criminal case in Chelsea District Court” for the informant’s friend.
The FBI said Randall also asked the unnamed informant about buying prescription painkillers, explaining he used to purchase Percocets by the “wheelbarrow,” and “500 at a time,” but it is getting difficult to get them.
When FBI agents confronted Randall about the arrangement last month, he reportedly denied knowing the informant or the friend, the FBI affidavit said.
“I have no reason to lie to ya, fellas,” the FBI said Randall told agents.
If convicted of lying to federal agents, Randall faces up to five years in prison. The FBI said the Revere Police Department is cooperating with the probe.
“The arrest this morning demonstrates Revere Police Chief Terence Reardon’s and the FBI’s commitment to pursue all allegations of public corruption,” said DesLauriers, who heads the FBI’s Boston field office. Revere police declined to comment yesterday.
