Drunk cop runs over 11 yr old girl, 2 officers charged in cover up, still found not guilty

Recommended Posts

This was a pretty big case everyone was watching - heres the story.

 

 

Kentucky girl is playing with friends on a county road here in a Nashville suburb. Officer hits her at 80 MPH in a 40 with no lights/sirens, is seen throwing liquor bottles out of his unmarked car by family. Officers respond, tamper with evidence, completely break protocol, administer their own blood test at the office. Family has liquor bottles genetically linked to the officer, 2 responding officers are formally charged with evidence tampering, driving officer is charged with filing a false report as well.

 

So basically everyone in town figured the cops were finally going to get held accountable for killing someone here, finally. It was a little girl, 14+ witnesses saw him throw liquor bottles out of his squad car and one was linked to his DNA, and all 3 police on the scene were charged with evidence tampering... seemed a wrap.

 

Not so likely, and Ill explain how they got away with it by manipulating the order of evidence

 

 

 

 

 

MURFREESBORO — Ron Killings will have to carry the "tremendous burden" of 11-year-old Lakeisha White's death for the rest of his life, his attorney said Friday, the day after the former sheriff's deputy was found not guilty of reckless homicide.

 

 

 

 

The acquittal of Killings, a former Rutherford County sheriff's detective whose patrol car struck and killed the girl in July 2008, came as a shock to some.

 

A jury chosen in Hamilton County because of pretrial publicity deliberated less than an hour Thursday before returning the verdict on Killings' 44th birthday.

 

"The irony of the verdict is that he was acquitted, but this remains such a tragic situation," defense lawyer Terry Fann said Friday. "It is a tremendous burden that he has had to carry and is something he will deal with for the rest of his life."

Ron Killings case jurors speak: State had no proof

 

Lakeisha, of Hopkinsville, Ky., was visiting relatives in Murfreesboro when she apparently ran out into the street in front of Killings' speeding cruiser.

 

One of those relatives sees the verdict as the "completion of the cover-up" that started when police investigating the wreck would not believe witnesses who said Killings removed liquor bottles from his car and put them in a nearby trash can.

 

"We knew, before even going into this trial, that this was the completion of the cover-up," aunt Rose Collier said Friday. "He was found not guilty over lies."

 

Collier said the detective, who resigned after his indictment a year ago, lied on the stand when he told special prosecutor Joe Baugh that he did not take anything out of his car.

 

Witnesses collected the bottles, and a private attorney for the family presented police with the evidence. Some officers were disciplined for their actions.

 

The TBI lab connected at least one liquor bottle found at the scene to Killings in the weeks after the fatal crash. The jury never heard about that because Rutherford County Judge David Bragg ruled that the bottles were not evidence in the reckless homicide case.

 

A test given hours after the wreck indicated Killings had not been drinking.

 

He remains charged with tampering with evidence and filing a false police report.

See, first of all the jury never was allowed to consider the evidence tampering charges - the DA decided to have the homicide trial first, which is the completely OPPOSITE of a strategy - normally in a murder trial situation the DA typically tries lesser pending charges (such as the check fraud charges in the casey anthony trial) in order to a) make the suspect look like more of a criminal when they eventually hold the murder trial since they are more likely to get a jury conviction on lesser charges and b) it keeps them off the street. Its pretty unheard of for a DA to handle the murder trial first then leave any supporting charges, which outcomes would definitely effect the jury decision in a homicide case. So the jury wasnt allowed to even consider the option of evidence tampering. Furthermore the liquor bottles were ruled as inadmissable because the judge said they were irrelevant... so as a result the DA pushed forward a knowingly weak case that would have been streingthened by obvious means in order to get this drunk cop off..

Actually the dead girls aunt got drunk and attacked a bunch of cops screaming about how they killed her baby, in a semi-public incedent

 

 

 

And yeah, if some drunk cop ever ran my son over, then got away with it, I would make a solid attempt to sytematically torture them to death

No I'm pretty sure they would get lethal injection for premeditating the murder of a "officer of the peace"

See when it first went down it seemed like it was a wrap, dude would plea a vehicular homicide and do a little 18 month bullshit sentence and lose his pension... But once they decided to hold a trial for the manslaughter before the evidence tampering it was clear it was already over. Some people figured because it was such a little girl something would be done

 

How do you even pretend it's a "fair trial" when the responding officers AND the suspect, also an officer, have pending charges for tampering with the crime scene? Isn't that something you need to figure out first? If they tampered with the homicide scene? Seems like you would want to figure that one out.

 

 

What was really fucked up was the juror interviews saying "this guy has been through so much already he never should have been charged", but they were kept in the dark by so much of the case in trial

 

It just goes to show, cops can
