    Another random bit:

    US lawyer William “Billy” Murphy – who represents the family of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who suffered a fatal spinal injury while in Baltimore police custody – has agreed to be guest speaker at the Criminal Bar Association (CBA) conference.

    CBA president Tony Bouchier told CaseLoad he telephoned Murphy and “he agreed straight away to speak at the conference”.

      Murphy is the epitome of the greasy low-brow street lawyer. I wouldn’t hire just on his appearance and demeanor. He looks unprofessional, unkempt, and slimy. Why in the world any lawyer association would want to put him up front is beyond me.

      Ya gotta wonder if Murphy will talk about Gray’s neck being severed 80% which was untrue? Will he apologize to the audience for his agenda in misleading the public to ratchet up the anger of those looting for drugs/alcohol/burning for the hell of it? Will he defend Rawlings-Blake as brilliant for providing the criminals a place to commit their crimes against the hard working people of Baltimore? Will he blame LE for not doing their jobs because of the rise of violent crimes in Baltimore, never mentioning the legitimate fear LE has that they could be accused of crimes/charged by Mosby for doing their job? Is Mosby cueing her good friend Murphy on what she wants him to spin to his audience about the Gray case while Mosby wants a “gag order” in Gray’s case?

      What a scumbag.

    The yearbook picture of King is definitely a white person. It appears to be spelled “Shawn” King.

    Perhaps “Shawn” is his actual legal name and then at some point he tweaked it to “Shaun.” Perhaps he figured that people might go searching through his past and he wanted to make a pre-emptive move to throw them off.

    King certainly does look white. Somebody needs to hold his feet to the fire on this issue the exact same way that they did with Rachel.Dolezal.

    On Megan Kelly tonight it was reported that BPD video-recorded Donta Allen’s statement about Freddie rockin’, rollin’ and hollerin’ in the paddy wagon, which of course differs GREATLY from his whoopsie retraction via the lesbo reporter, now reassigned, I believe (or on leave?).

    Toldja guys there’d be a vid of that statement.

    There should be a lot more out about it tomorrow (Tues.). It also came out that Goodson has made no statement of any kind to BPD or anyone. Normally in a case like this he’d be expected to give a statement to his department but, given the culture of treachery by this chief, he was very wise not to.

    Mosby is trying to divide the B6 by splitting the trials into a nonsensical grouping and will have to file a motion to accomplish that. The lawyers on the show didn’t seem to think she’d be successful.

    Other evidence was dropped on the defense, too, but Kelly didn’t go into it – or doesn’t have it yet or hasn’t looked at it yet or is going to mete it out piecemeal for ratings. Kelly stated that Mosby said there were 300k (or was it 3mil?) pieces of evidence. Yeah, right.

    I want to see the video. Kelly and the lawyers say Mosby’s case is toast because of it. But that won’t stop her. Only a judge or a tsunami can stop her.

        From the link…
        Then, one day while walking to band class in 1995, King was the victim of a brutal hate crime. A dozen youth assaulted him. He suffered facial fractures and required three spinal surgeries, causing him to miss a year and a half of school. He fell into deep depression and at times wanted to die.

        Thanks to a comment under another article on the Re-NewsIt site I found this:

        Click to access 2002hatecrimereport.pdf

        Hate incidents reported by Kentucky Newspapers (Page 35)
        1995 April (Louisville): A Korean woman in Lexington was verbally harassed and threatened by a young male while stopped at a stoplight. The youth told the woman to “leave his country” and continued to follow her for miles. (Courier-Journal)
        August (Paducah): Saying that McCracken County school officials could not assure him that his children would be safe riding the school bus, an African-American father keeps his children off the bus. The three children were reported to have been subjected to racial slurs from other children riding the bus after an incident regarding where one of the children would sit. The father indicated his intent to move the family from their residence of eight years as a result. (Paducah Sun)

        He may or may not be bi-racial but he is a liar. Only 2 hate incidents for 1995. Don’t you think the paper would have reported this crime, since it allegedly was so severe and took place on school property?

          The ‘angry AA’ movement vis-a-vis Latinos and Asians goes way back, there were incidents in California decades ago when the Latino population started to eclipse the AA population and there was a move to have Latinos ‘delisted’ as minorities. In our area there was a huge dustup in the 80s when some Vietnamese who’d been on welfare, after they adjusted to our system and started to become prosperous, started trying to pay back the assistance they’d received. Unfamiliar with our ‘cradle to grave’ free lunch program they thought that the welfare was a loan, or felt they owed it to the system that propped them up as they transitioned into a new culture. The negative feedback from some support-dependent quarters was immediate and viscous – the newspaper even printed letters from aggrieved recipients complaining that this could turn the free lunch welfare system into a loan system – imagine THAT! The issue died down as the number of Vietnamese on welfare plummeted, those trying to repay discovered there was actually no way for welfare to be paid back and letters stopped coming to the papers. In the latter case it may have been someone at the paper discovering that it wasn’t PC to point out the whiners had no clothes – but that’s just conjecture.

There has been (I don’t know about in this economy) a growing black middle class. But these others who like the victim hood, they have to claim being “the real black culture” partly so that people can’t say, “lots of blacks who work hard get ahead like everyone else”. That group of blacks just wants to hang on to that “easy life” being victims and living off the government. So they won’t be kind to those people from other cultures. They show them up.

    S. King is culturally blacker than Obama. But that doesn’t take much blackness.

    Whether King was sired by a black man (as BHO was sired by Frank Marshall Davis) appears uncertain. Either way, King can not possibly be less culturally black than BHO.

    Understanding that Obama’s African namesake was a straw man never actually in the child’s life whose decoy role was schemed by FMD to cover for FMD’s adulterous siring of the child by the white teen girl Stanley Anne Dunham, BHO’s diapers were never changed by black hands. Other than an occasional visit to FMD’s residence late in his childhood, BHO had zero interface with black Americans.

    There was practically no black community and no American history on the island where BHO was raised, let alone in Indonesia where he spent the non-Hawaii part of his youth.

    King was born and raised in a county that had a black high school until the 1950s. Slaves were owned in the county during the late eighteenth century.

    King grew up a white boy maybe or maybe not of black paternity. Obama grew up a chocolate coated white boy of black paternity.

    Then as young men each chose to declare blackness. As the result each has gained a level of prominence due to Affirmative Action privilege and its resulting commercial premium on brown well beyond his capacity were he viewed as the whitey he actually is.

A jury in a previous Civil Case awarded 7.4 million for a death in a transport van & was reduced to the Civil Cap of $ 200,000.00.. In the wrongful death of my sister, my family paid 40% for the Civil Attorney’s so it’s not a big pay day w/so many involved.

      I shared this link before on other threads, I don’t know if you saw it but it talks about other injuries in transport vans, I thought you might be interested. Some prisonners claimed “nickel rides,” of course this case was clearly not a case of a nickel ride.

        The money will also be made is future cases. Publicity equals opportunity. And maybe they argue removing the cap or increasing liability for police in this type of situation.

        I would like to know how may transports are done each year for the last twenty years and how many were injured in the transport. If they don’t seatbelt them in and there are a large number, that is a failure to train and a larger civil suit.

        If there is only three or four out of say a hundred thousand, and the issue is officer safety then not so much. It all comes down to what is “reasonable.” I’m wondering if Mosby is looking to ding the department for not addressing this issue and is willing to hurt six officers to do it.

        Our department put it in the Guidelines, but not a hard and fast rule because officer safety trumps unruly prisoners. We don’t get our own necks snapped by a knee blast to the face as we struggle to belt them in our out. It also depends on the length of the ride. but don’t get me wrong, IF something happened the department would use the General Orders to fry the officer. Like we were told, the GO’s are there to protect you, they are there to protect the department FROM you.

        If it goes to trial, I believe the cap is $200,000 ~per~ claimant ~per~ incident.

        This is where it’s helpful to have the prosecutor in your pocket… the way Mosy has charged the officers with everything under the sun, I’m sure Murphy will argue that each is a separate incident.

        And if I understand the matter correctly… the city is not bound by the cap when settling a case out of court. IIRC, another case was settled for 6.5 million.

          nivico ~ This doesn’t make any difference if Mosby is in the pocket of Gray’s family or not! WHY? Chief Batt’s took responsibility as soon as the incident happened for the city stating, “it was never acceptable for prisoners not to be secured for their protection during transport as it was mandated policy.” The family doesn’t need Mosby, the law is on the side of the family for transport, Gray’s dead.

          There are several reasons for the 6.5 million dollar settlement, there is clear distinction, Alston lived! In the other case of the 7.4 million reduced to $ 200,000.00 for the family, the family appealed but lost! WHY? Because the victim died.

          Alston lived/was paralyzed from the neck down, victims that live always get a bigger settlement that those that die, you don’t understand the bigger picture! WHY? They have to have specialized wheelchairs for sitting so it can be changed to different positions for napping/watching TV/being fed by hand by a caretaker if not fed through a tube in the belly throughout the day. The chairs are astronomical in cost for the person needing the specialized wheelchair/usually the chairs are made for the victims. We had several children in special ed that couldn’t move from their necks down, sad. Alston needed a specialized van to transport him to countless Dr.’s visits, insurance for the van, the special vans w/lifts aren’t cheap, caretakers for at least 2 shifts a day for the rest of his life to feed him, change him, dress him, position him while he is in bed so he doesn’t get bed sores.

          This is absolutely hell on earth for Alton’s family, but most importantly for Alton that needs this care for the rest of his life. ALL of these cost incurred for Alston’s family for the rest of his life because Altson was injured under LE care. Clearly you see why Alston’s family got what was estimated by experts for his long term care for a lifetime.

          (A) although the Officers claimed the victim claimed he banged his head, (B) Dr. Adrian Barbul, a Sinai Hospital trauma surgeon, testified that Alston had no external head injuries when he was taken to the emergency room. (C) Alston’s family won the Judgement for the lifetime care of Alston for the rest of his life against the City.

              The other economic damages/punitive damages doesn’t apply to the Gray case whatsoever, the economic damages/punitive damages pertain to living victims which you never bother to state which is misleading to readers!

              I explained above to you that when a victim doesn’t die & needs a lifetime of care for being incapacitated as in the Alston case, he was paralyzed from the neck down, his family got 6 + million as experts estimated his family needed for a lifetime.

    Mobile shooting – that’s not the worst corner of Mobile by a long shot. It is by McGill, a well-recognized private high school, and there are really nice homes in the area. But there are sketchy areas nearby – not much of Mobile is cloistered except maybe the Springhill campus.

    It is a good walk from the downtown area, where there are a lot of homeless people – which can lead to petty crime, but not 1am stick-ups.

    Sitting in the car at 1am is odd. She may have been waiting for someone to deliver a package or something.

    That area is nice enough to get great service by the police – it would be foolish to think you could wander around and brandish a gun at people without getting the law all over you.

      Let’s see what history has to say about arson at black churches in South Carolina.

      Pastor, wife arrested after South Carolina church fire
      The Nation – In Brief
      May 4, 2005
      SUMMERVILLE, S.C. — A pastor and his wife have been charged with arson in a fire that gutted their church last week, authorities said Tuesday. The Monday arrests of the Rev. Harold Hunter and Patricia Hunter came a day after the pastor gave a sermon in which he said he prayed for the “sick, sadistic” person who burned down the church. No one was hurt in the blaze. “We found some gas that was located on the pastor’s shoes, and we also found clothing in the residence that had gasoline on it,” Summerville police Capt. Craig Legates said.

        Whoever didn’t should only get two years probation like the good reverend.

        Former pastor Harold E. Hunter pleaded guilty Thursday morning to a lesser charge in connection with a suspected arson fire at the Bethel AME church, and his five-year prison sentence was suspended to two years’ probation.

  20. Justices will hear new case on Arizona state redistricting

    During their next session the SCOTUS will hear another case regarding the redistricting panels in AZ.

    The Supreme Court has agreed to hear a new case about the drawing of state legislative districts in Arizona by an independent commission, a day after the justices upheld the commission’s congressional map-drawing.

    The justices said Tuesday they will consider in their new term whether the legislative districts are unconstitutional.

        That was around the time Cher had a hit with “Half Breed” and also when “Cherokee People” rode the charts.

    For anyone interested. A couple of Attorney’s weighed in on Mosby’s behavior.

    ‘You hypocrite!’ Fury as Baltimore chief prosecutor gunning for Freddie Gray ‘killer cops’ poses for glamorous Vogue photoshoot – while trying to GAG defendants’ lawyers

    Celebrity lawyer Joe Tacopina told Daily Mail Online he was ‘shocked’ to see the Mosby piece in Vogue.

    ‘It reeks of lack of self-aggrandizing,’ he said. ‘She’s a prosecutor in a very serious, very serious, tragic case and she’s making it all about her. She’s making herself a celebrity out of a tragedy.

    ‘I understand that you can get thrust into the national spotlight because of a high profile case. But when you feed the beast in the middle of the case, it’s outrageous – particularly when she’s trying to muzzle the defense attorneys.

    ‘Clearly she has in her mind some sort of trajectory after the case is over that will lead her to a role of a national prominence, be it in politics or some television host of something.’

  24. Another case for the next SCOTUS session:

    Supreme Court to consider power of public sector unions to collect fees from non-members

    The justices said Tuesday they will hear an appeal from a group of California teachers who say it violates their First Amendment rights to have to pay any fees if they disagree with a union’s positions and don’t want to join it.

    The teachers want the court to overturn a 38-year-old legal precedent that said unions can require non-members to pay for bargaining costs as long as the fees don’t go toward political purposes. Public workers in half the states currently are required to pay “fair share” fees if they are represented by a union, even if they are not members.

    http://www.usnews.com/news/business/articles/2015/06/30/justices-take-up-dispute-over-union-fees

    I seem to remember being required to pay a “Fair Share” penalty when I filed my taxes this year, thanks to ObamaCare. I doubt the socialists in the SCOTUS will provide any relief to the teachers who are protesting having to pay their “Fair Share” in Union Dues now..

      This is a worthwhile phenomenon to highlight. The progressives know they are outsiders, and have to insinuate themselves into our society. They do this many ways.

      One way is to build in revenue streams. The mandatory-revenue-dues scam is one of them. Organize if you want. But if a teacher, or whomever, does not want to pay in, then let them not pay in.

      You will see other examples of engineering political support and revenue streams into the government if you keep your eye out for them.

      • Totally agreed. In this case, the union gets their money whether or not the teacher wants to join. I guess the money is collected before their paychecks are even processed. Talk about “strong arm” tactics!

    From the Mosby Vogue article – “The unrest had nothing to do with my decision to charge,” Mosby says. “I just followed where the facts led. This is not something that was fast, or in a hurry. From the time that this incident occurred, we were out there conducting our own investigation and working with the police department. There is nothing that we’ve done differently in this case.”

    Unbelievable. She said the complete opposite in the court filing from last week.

One of the main points was that a vehicle is your most powerful weapon when attacked like this. Use it and keep moving, no matter what.

      If there were adequate street lighting, it would probably be much better. Of course, neither cities, businesses, or individuals are likely to spend the money on high-def cctv, unless they perceive a direct, significant risk. When my area was targeted by copper thieves, that was enough for me, but my cams would not do much better than what’s seen in the video for a subject in the street, beyond my property. Recent developments suggest that upgrades, including IR may be prudent, though.
