KingCast ponders why Massachusetts LE are getting an award for the Dan Talbot Revere Police shooting investigation.
First you have Jackass Jake Wark and DA Dan Conley violating the First Amendment in the Courthouse hallway, watch the video below. Then God knows they didn't play this one by the (correct) book, and I'm not even getting into what really happened that night at the bar... Let's just start with the fact that Officer Soto said the blast happened in front of someone other than the Defendant. Let's continue with the way the grounds were not properly secured before they found the crucial evidence, or the infamous gatorade bullet casing that somehow allegedly landed just so... without even leaving any heat marks on the plastic bottle.
Suffolk County State Police Detective Unit to be Honored
BOSTON, June 11, 2012—Members of the State Police detective unit assigned to Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley’s office will be honored by Colonel Marian McGovern for its work investigating the homicide of an off-duty Revere Police officer five years ago. Past and present members of the Suffolk County State Police Detective Unit will receive the Superintendent’s Unit Commendation at the 2012 Spring Superintendent’s Award Ceremony at State Police headquarters tomorrow morning.
The award reflects Suffolk SPDU’s investigation of the Sept. 29, 2007, shooting death of Officer Daniel Talbot as he socialized with friends and colleagues. “This is an honor richly deserved,” Conley said. “The investigation into Officer Talbot’s murder was a singular example of outstanding police work by some of the finest detectives in Massachusetts or anywhere else. You don’t have to look any further than the case’s disposition to see the strength of the case they built, brick by brick.”
Talbot’s killer, ROBERT IACOVIELLO, Jr. (D.O.B. 6/19/87), was convicted of second-degree murder at his 2010 trial in Suffolk Superior Court.
He is serving a life term in state prison. Also convicted at trial was JAMES HEANG (D.O.B. 6/19/90), found guilty of being an accessory after the fact to Talbot’s murder and sentenced to three to six years. Two additional defendants pleaded guilty to their roles in the homicide, with DEREK LODIE (D.O.B. 1/2/90) receiving an eight- to 12-year prison sentence for summoning an armed Iacoviello to the scene with a handgun and GIA NAGY (D.O.B. 6/2/90) receiving one to two years for helping to dispose of the murder weapon. The Suffolk County State Police Detective Unit investigates homicides and other serious violent crimes in Chelsea, Revere, and Winthrop, as well as on State property within the City of Boston.
The honorees will include 14 men and women of ranks ranging from trooper to major, including Major William Christiansen, the unit’s former commander, and Detective Lieutenant Jack Lannon, its current leader. Tomorrow’s event starts at 10:00 a.m. Media are invited to attend.
