AFTERNOON UPDATE * JUSTICE IS NOT SUPPOSED TO WORK THIS WAY!
LIVESTREAM FAIL REDUX!
At one point this afternoon, 38 minutes of last Tuesday’s city council meeting were posted on the city’s YouTube channel (click here). Apparently the meeting went for 2.5 hours and late this afternoon even the 38 minute video was no longer available.
The city took over and announced publicly that they will now be responsible for livestreaming these meetings. If they do not have staff that is capable of handling this function they need to outsource it to someone/a company that does. Period.
There will be more tomorrow.
* On March 15th, the County filed a “Motion for Conference” with Judge Leonard G. Brown III requesting resolution of the County’s “Petition to Intervene” in the District Attorney’s appeal of the release of his office’s civil forfeiture records (see below).
BY DA CRAIG STEDMAN!
In any other case, a defense lawyer suggested at her trial, Katie West likely would have been charged with a crime.
However, police said they used “discretion” and compassion in not charging West, who survived a 2012 crash that killed her husband and youngest son.
From the LNP article by Brett Hambright, (now the DA’s spokesman), “Police used “discretion” in not charging surviving driver who was on heroin,” (click here).
So the fact that Katie West is then County Commissioner Scott Martin’s sister had nothing to do with the decision? And the police made this decision and DA Stedman didn’t have the ultimate call?
This is just one of many cases where Stedman did favors for political friends and colleagues. It is obviously absolutely unacceptable for a district attorney or a judge!
