Succotash my Balzac, dipshiitake.

Don't act surprised.

KPD officer Jason Keck has been cleared of any wrongdoing from the night of May 18 when he shot and killed 19 year-old Sean Gillespie. The investigation took all Summer and was conducted by the DA's office.
I'm not clear how the incident can be considered free of wrongdoing on the part of Officer Keck. He shot a man who no one else could see through the tinted windows of the backseat of a parked car. Only he could see Gillespie, and there is only his own testimony to validate that he had a clear sight line. Officer Keck claims to have seen Gillespie "digging around" for a gun on the seat beside him when he decided to shoot. Incidentally, no fingerprints have been recovered from the gun Gillespie was allegedly reaching for. That's interesting.
It sure would be nice if there was a full disclsure of the investigation and its findings, instead of just having to take Randy Nichols and Officer Keck at their word. Specifically, where are the crime scene photos? I'd like to know where the gun really was in relation to Gillespie when he was shot.
I wonder if he would have been shot if he had been a white kid in the back of a Saturn, instead.

Feh, I don't want to think about this anymore. It's far too depressing.

addendum


Check out the slideshow from the Weigel's security camera. Does anyone see alot of people partying and dancing around the white Caprice? The one shot where more than three people are seen in the parking lot is the last one in the series, and was taken after the shooting occured.
