I knew Bo.   My company used PwC to prepare for our actual yearly audit with D&T.  He interviewed me a few times over a financial system I worked on.  He was the nicest auditor we've ever met. We all liked him.

I cut them slack when the search affidavit indicated they were looking for evidence like shell casings.

Then when the news leaks about the weed, you understand exactly what they were doing.

See what happened was, she accidentally stumbled into his apartment.  While in there, she noticed the marijuana.  She pulled her gun to make an arrest for the illegal substance, he advanced on her, and she was forced to kill him in self defense.

"Merritt said the warrant "highlights just sort of the nefarious nature of their investigation."
"They went in with the intent to look for some sort of criminal justification for the victim," Merritt said. "It's a pattern that we've seen before...we have a cop who clearly did something wrong. And instead of investigating the homicide - instead of going into her apartment and seeing what they can find, instead of collecting evidence relevant for the homicide investigation - they went out specifically looking for ways to tarnish the image of this young man."
"

Just a few bad police precincts, nothing to worry about here.

Did that rumor about the first judge refusing to have her arrested for anything less than murder ever get verified?
 
2018-09-14 02:12:16 AM  
wow.  so whatever this woman actually did must have been incredibly BAD.  like she just ignored procedure, training, common sense and sanity levels of bad.  I haven't seen THIS blatant a case of victim blaming in a while.

Of course. Because anyone on possession of weed deserves to die.

There are 5 marijuana dispensaries alone on Main Street in Springfield, Oregon, 8 in total in the city.

Eugene, Oregon has 20 marijuana dispensaries, but they're a bigger city than Springfield, plus Eugene is a university town.


As for the search warrant garbage and finding a small amount of pot, I willing to bet it was planted in the murder victim's apartment during the search.

I wonder if the cops realize just how popular cannabis has become in the past decade or so?  this is old skool pre internet level of victim blaming.  its the sort of thing i'd expect from a cliche Texas asshole racist state cop.  its practically a gotdamn writer trope.

I'm merely quoting what the DA would say.  I do not agree with the statement.

I wonder if they found any pictures of him looking menacingly, maybe they could crop a photo of him like you get when you ride a roller coaster. They could crop that out, darken it like the OJ pic and leak it to some of the pig cops at stormfront... whoops. I mean fellow police officers with economic anxiety.

They're gonna railroad this guy to get this horrible piece of shiat cop a walk. This poor, innocent bastard whose only problem in life was moving into the same building as a white power cop. Dammit. Did it again. That should actually be cop with economic anxiety. I wish I'd stop farking up and remember to use the code words we've all agreed upon.

Two bullet casings, a police backpack and vest and 10.4 grams of marijuana were seized from Botham Jean's apartment

Lol, they didn't even take the backpack they used to set him up.  They were like, "shiat, just leave it... Makes it look like he stole it from us.". Tbh, I say do full forensics on that bag and find out how it came to be there. I bet it "magically" appeared, along with the casings from a gun he never had. farking joke of an investigation; the entire department should be fired if nobody steps up to hold this officer accountable.

She and her family scrubbed their Facebook, Twitter and other social media accounts before anyone even heard of her murder, but she forgot her Pinterest account.

Take a wild guess what that was filled with?

Cop culture is a sickness.  The whole thin blue line mentality is a pernicious poison.

You know what else he had in his apartment that shouldn't have been there? A homicidal douchebag cop.

More likely the cop went back to her apartment, got her stash and put it in his apartment.

But, why did they need to search his apartment, was her apartment searched?

He's history's greatest erroneously-killed monster!

Well that's certainly worthy of capital punishment. Hell, I'll bet he sped on his way into work that morning too.

They should have at least tried to pull the "PCP-laced marijuana creating a demon supernegro with preternatural strength that she had no choice but to put down before he went on a rampage and picked up her car and hurled it into the sun." Weaksauce, guys. You can do better.

I wonder if the next guy who decides to camp in a parking garage and get some of that "just us" for himself will be able to take a few more of them out than the last guy did, before they take him down.

Not saying it'll be right, or that I will root for him from the safety of my armchair 500 miles away... but I'll certainly understand.

I hear it's easily done.

1/2 oz of weed? in cop circles that's about - what? - $1000 street value?

ever since weed started becoming decriminalized, cops have had to stop doing that.  they were getting fact checked to an insane degree.

you're making things up.  that's not what happened.  I know a guy who's dating a girl that has a step-sister who's dating another guy on the police force.  An unnamed source approached the officer earlier in the day and said they were dealing drugs out of the apartment and had uzis and at least 3 assault rifles in the apartment.  the office approached the apartment, not waiting for backup for fear another little kid may fall victim to a drug deal.  she saw several gang-bangers run from the apartment as she approached with M13 tattoos carrying what appeared to be a large cache of weapons.  The officer bravely entered the apartment and was forced to defend herself.  As she performed CPR, the gang came back and removed the remaining weapons and drugs (but somehow missed the small bag of pot).  she wanted to stop them, but knew his life was in the balance so couldn't stop CPR.  She's the victim here.  she was forced to hurt this young man who was under the influence of a band of Mexican animals.  Now you want to ruin her career for keeping everyone else safe?  have you no shame?

It's going to take a long time for things to be sorted out, and I hope that cop gets what she deserves, but wow.
