84. Color me skeptical. Has anyone seen an original source for Roy Brown's crime and sentencing?
Edited on Fri Jun-24-11 10:29 AM by slackmaster
I can't find a verifiable source to confirm that it's true. There are lots of blog posts about the story, but I haven't seen one that links to the original which according to some sources was reported by KTBS in 2009. Just an endless loop of links from blog to blog but never an original news source. No name of a reporter who could be contacted to verify the story.

For example, http://mybossier.blogspot.com/2009/01/we-saw-that-story...

Another one that has a link to KTBS that goes nowhere: http://forum.prisonplanet.com/index.php?topic=80575.0 ;wap2

I have tired several different searches of the KTBS Web site and turned up nothing.

http://www.ktbs.com/index.html

Here's one that looks sort of credible on the surface, but cites only a blog as a source:

http://www.digitaljournal.com/article/265402

I haven't seen a source that cites the name of the judge who supposedly imposed the sentence. Why is that? Usually that's featured prominently in stories about injustice on the part of the state.

Oh well, it looks like I'll have to be the only DUer to question the veracity of the story. And if someone wishes to chide me with something like "It doesn't matter if this incident really happened or not, the system is unfair!" then so be it.

Regretfully Unrec'ed.
