This #officerinvolved shooting is a trial to determine whether the shooting was justified or not.
DEDHAM, Mass. (Court TV) — A hearing on Friday in a case that featured protesters at the courthouse prompted a city audit and led to a blogger being placed behind bars, punctuated by cheers in the courtroom. Karen Read is charged with murdering her boyfriend, Boston Police Officer John O’Keefe, who was found dead in the snow outside the Canton home of a fellow officer. While prosecutors have said that Read backed her car into O’Keefe before driving away and leaving him to die, Read’s defense team has said that the victim was alive and well the last time she saw him and has accused the police of a conspiracy to frame their client.
A Florida man accused of taking part in a robbery that turned deadly is representing himself at trial. Franklin “Ty” Tucker is charged with robbery, homicide, aggravated assault, and battery for a robbery that led to the death of Matthew Bonnett and injured Paula Belmonte at a property known as “The Treehouse.”
In the Delphi case, the State Supreme Court reinstated his attorneys but did not remove Judge Gull. The reinstatement was essential to preserving the defendant's rights to fair and equitable application of due process guaranteed to all, regardless of the charges. Concerning not removing the Judge, there were no legal or constitutional violations for removing the Judge Gull. However, the appearance of biases from the bench may be problematic for defense counsel in their interactions with the Judge. Let's hope the jury does not pick up on it.
Tracy Ferriter initially filed a motion informing the courts that she had no money and now needed a court-appointed attorney. Her attorney then asked the Judge to be removed from the case and stated new counsel was in place. However, after the judge refused to move Tracy Ferriter's trial date beyond March, her attorney withdrew, saying he could not be prepared in time.

Lori Vallow Daybell is accused of the disappearance and heinous murder of her children, Tylee Ryan (17) and Joshua "JJ" Vallow (7), in 2019 with her husband, Chad Daybell, who is currently awaiting trial. The murder trial includes a web of lies, cult affiliation, evading law enforcement, power, and the additional murders of Chad Daybell's ex-wife and Lori's ex-husband. The case was moved to another venue due to the high profile of the case.
June 7, 2023, at 1 pm Guest Legal Analyst, Federal Law Enforcement Instructor and Litigation Expert #sunnyslaughter on #lawcrimenetwork discuss In 2018, School Resource Officer #scotpeterson is accused of failing to follow his training by remaining behind a covered position for at least 45 minutes while a shooter roamed the halls of a Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School building, killing 14 children and three staff members and leaving 17 others injured, prosecutors have said. Peterson, 60, pleaded not guilty to 11 charges, including seven counts of felony child neglect, three counts of culpable negligence, and one count of perjury concerning the shooting and statements he made afterward.
On January 19, 2024, my appearance on Scripps Morning Rush discusses the DOJ Critical Incident Review of the Active Shooter Robb Elementary School in May 2022. It is a harsh rebuke of the system failures of law enforcement operations that contributed to the murder of more than a dozen children and two adults, the injury of countless others and the devastation of an entire community and nation.
The Why," on Red Flag Laws: what they are, which states have them, how they work, and more. In light of the most recent spree shooting in Lewiston, ME, which left 18 people dead and countless others injured, and several mass shootings during Halloween celebrations across the country, we need to have more conversations like this to discuss what's really going on. Unfortunately, gun violence at the intersection of law enforcement response or what some say is a lack of responsiveness, criminal justice layers, political reaction, public outcry, and mental health diagnosis, disease, and trauma caught in the crossfire; the crisis is as real as it gets.
Convicted murderer and escaped convict #danelocavalcante (day 11) is proving that his desperation and determination to evade the collective mass of over 400 federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies makes him even more deadly than we may have thought. It also makes me wonder if he isn't getting some assistance now that he's stolen a vehicle (since recovered), altered his appearance, and seemingly cheesing for the ring camera. According to reports, he may have had help along now that he's stolen a vehicle (which was recovered), is clean-shaven, and is wearing fresh clothes. Let's hope that this will end without further harm to anyone.
