Quote of the Day   2 comments

Lawrence O’Donnell (MSNBC) “Just before officer Darren Wilson testified to the grand jury investigating his killing of Michael Brown the assistant District Attorney handling the case said this to the grand jurors ‘I’m going to pass out to you all, you all are going to receive a copy of a statute,It is section 563.046, and it is, it says law enforcement officers use of force in making an arrest, and it is the law on what is permissible, what force is permissible, and when in making an arrest by a police officer.’  The Assistant District Attorney Kathy Alizadeh then handed the grand jury a copy of a 1979 Missouri law that was ruled unconstitutional by the United States Supreme Court in 1985.  She was handing them something that had not been law in Missouri during her entire legal career.  But, it was very helpful to officer Darren Wilson that the Assistant District Attorney handed the grand jury an old unconstitutional law which said incorrectly that it is legal to shoot fleeing suspects, simply because they are fleeing.”

  1. Reblogged this on prestonchronicles and commented:
    Another example of what is the trouble with the truth is St. Louis County Assistant District Attorney Kathy Alizadeh. Some call what she introduced as Missouri law to the grand jury a mistake. I call it a mishandling of the truth. Listen to Lawrence O’Donnell (MSNBC) report on this. In the midst of national unrest, Alizadeh provides law for the grand jury to consider that was ruled unconstitutional since 1985! …role the video.

  2. Granted, at the end of the proceeding they said there might be part of the law that should be ignored, but asking what part was above their heads, and they did not need to know. It’s just completely awful.
