Response to geek tragedy (Reply #27)

Thu Feb 14, 2013, 12:21 AM

39. I did not say he was lynched. Obviously he was not.

 

But the comparison to lynching with respect to THE LACK OF DUE PROCESS is completely valid.

I wasn't there and you weren't there. No one has the full story on everything that went on. We do NOT know whether he was given the opportunity to surrender at the cabin. We DO know that no effort was made to hunker down and wait him out.

As to the legality of what the police did - only a court proceeding (civil or criminal) would be able to make that determination. And one very key witness is now dead. So we will never know the full truth. From the videos and coverage I have seen, the gunfire had been stopped for a very long time before the police moved in to tear the walls down. There was no gunfight anymore. There was an apparent standoff.

And the manner of his death has not yet been determined. Suicide is only one possibility. I doubt you have seen proof of that claim with your own eyes yet.
