“…wrong glass sir!”

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 9:26 pm

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the soggy, and once again rather gloomy island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this warm, damp Wednesday morning, feeling the effects of a back door warm front pushing temperatures back up into the fifties, shirtsleeve weather out on the Hyannis/Hyannis Port Waterfront this 3rd day of December, 2014–trying to really get in that holiday spirit…

On Monday night’s “Last Word, with Lawrence O’Donnell” (weeknights on MSNBC, ten p.m. sharp, eastern), Lawrence exposed what many might find rather interesting, namely assistant prosecutor Kathy Alizadeh of the St. Louis Country Prosecuting Office.   Who, under lead St. Louis County prosecutor “We’ll talk to Bob” McCullough, provided the grand jury responsible for not bringing charges against Officer Darren Wilson for the August 9th shooting of an unarmed teenager, Michael Brown, in what has become known around the world as “FERGUSON”, with the wrong law many believe was meant to sway the jury into not gaining the nine votes needed for an indictment of any kind against the officer who 16 witnesses claim shot the boy in cold blood.

Yes, it seems that the plan all along was to “data dump” all of the evidence, truly a mountain of evidence, in front of a jury (looking at more than one case I might add) that, because of that action by prosecution (very rare indeed), were begging for some kind of direction in ‘The State of Missouri v. Darren Wilson’. But to make it even more air tight for the prosecution ironically on the side of the defendant, or not if you consider the close police ties to McCullough, the assistant prosecutor, Ms. Alizadeh, initially gave the jurors a law, or a statute, that had been rescinded back in 1985, i.e. Missouri law enforcement personal free to shoot fleeing suspects.

That’s right folks, the good people at the St. Louis County Prosecutors Office used that old, outdated version of the law right up until the end, when Kathy decided to slip in the update of what the law really states today, prompting one of the jurors on that famous grand jury to utter, “…um, does the Supreme Court & Federal Court override Missouri statutes?”, to wit Alizadeh replied, and I quote, “…oh, don’t worry about that, we don’t want to get into a law class.” Really, assistant prosecutor?  I think the Federal Government and the American People might be interested in that little detail

underhanded as it is and all.

Lawrence O’Donnell in his genius decided to send a letter to the St. Louis Prosecuting Office with three simple question regarding this epic case, many are calling the CIVIL RIGHTS’

case of our times…

So without further adieu, here are the questions that you too may find interesting.  Please enjoy and have a pleasant day!

1.  How many times has Ms. Alizadeh submitted the wrong law to a grand jury as it’s legal framework for an investigation?

2.  How many times has the District Attorney’s Office (all of them, collectively) submitted the wrong law to a grand jury as it’s legal framework for it’s investigation?

3.  Is the Michael Brown case the first time the District Attorney’s Office submitted the wrong law to a grand jury as the legal framework for it’s investigation?  (the sound of crickets in the background…).

“Wrong glass sir!” indeed.  (credit the film, “The Blues Brothers”, circa 1980, starring the late, great John Belushi).
