UPDATE: David Ranck resigns:
Two more submissions on David Ranck's blog.
This one is his latest response to the Stevenson Charles and Passion Carr murder prosecution.
It appears Stevenson Charles is serving 20 years with the Feds for gun issues which we are not certain are related to this case.
The blog post is an etymological analysis and linguistic disassembly of the responses by various police offices to the issues in this case as quoted in the Ovalle-Herald piece.
Passion Carr is-according to the clerk's office- being represented by Gordon Murray and the case is before Judge Marissa Tinkler-Mendez.
This one appears to be the close out memo in the Leonardo Barquin police shooting.
If you don't want to wade through 52 pages of ontological onanistic legal analysis, (the link is for our robed readers who might need a bit of help with their vocabulary- and this is an especially good word to describe much of their participation in the legal process by the way) the startling conclusion is this: there is not enough evidence to show the officer legally and justifiably shot Mr. Barquin and there is not enough evidence to prosecute him. Ta da!
We now enter the week before, and week of 4th of July, where it is way too hot to want to work, and judge's thoughts turn to those vacation homes in the Carolinas thoughtfully offered to them by lawyers who would never ever think of influencing their decisions. Right?
Anyway, if history is a guide much posturing ("you want to go to trial? Because I have nothing to do. I'll go to trial, so don't push me.") and little work will accomplished the next two weeks.
RUMPOLE UNCOVERS A VAST CONSPIRACY!!!!!:
Is it possible that there is some vast conspiracy between some all powerful "dry-cleaners political lobby" and the absolute refusal of any of the chief judges to modify the dress code for summer? If the Herald hadn't canned Nesmith, we know she would get right on this. Dark and powerful lobbyists never scared her.
See you in court.
