Still no word from DA on the murder of Mr. Stamps

It's almost two months now since the Framingham SWAT Team shot and killed Mr. Ernie Stamps in his home in Framingham. With very few witnesses and the SWAT Team itself, I wonder why it's taking so long to determine what happened that night. I can only speculate that DA Leone is rehearsing the SWAT Team in arranging the facts. Like his TV show, he's in control. He can choreograph the whole scene, write the script, place people in locations, make up facts, rehearse, rehearse, rehearse until they all have the same story. It happens all over the country, in the name of fighting the war on drug users who are somehow mystery killed.

As I have and many of you have witnessed, law enforcement will go to any lengths to cover-up, lie and deny the bold face facts. As noted in the case of the Easton teenager who was shot and killed by local police in NY last month. The Grand Jury decided the Police were not at fault in his murder, even after witnesses who watched the whole tragedy unfold testified the Police were out of line, jumping on the hood of the teenagers car, firing three shoots into the windshield, wounding one passenger and killing a young man trying to comply with a policemens order to move his car. Justice may prevail for the family as the Justice Department has agreed to look into the case.

And to a lesser extent, a local women took on the State Police motorcycle goon squad this month and won a judgment after being hit by one at the Marathon several years ago. The jury found the State cop negligent in his duties. Conveniently, the lawyers for the cops dragged their feet until the officer in question retired. Even in defeat, the lawyer and the cops feel they did nothing wrong.

Just yesterday in this country, the 10th person was murdered by a Drug Army SWAT Team member. It's anyone's guess when this state sanctioned killing will end, but more and more reasonable people are asking why use such force against such low level offenders without violent backgrounds.

Hi name was Eurie, not Ernie. But yeah, he's dead, and the FPD is working on the cover-up.

You can bet if the tables were turned and Mr. Stamps had killed a cop, his name and the events leading to the shooting of the cop would have been all over the news withing hours of the shooting. It just begs the question, why does it take so long to say what happend? It took 5 minutes for the raid on the house, and it is taking more than 60 days for someone to tell us what happened in that 5 minutes. Something smells pretty rancid in this whole mess.

How do we go about getting this information released to the public Jim? Seems they are waiting for the outrage to die down before they release it, and then it will be some small, back page report in the paper with a headline that won't tell us what it is even about so no one will bother reading it. This family deserves to know why their father, brother, uncle, husband was killed by a cop. And the people of Framingham should be supporting this family in getting this information. Can Town Meeting demand the DA's report if the Selectmen don't?

The question is, will the story we get have even a remote resemblance to the truth? And how do we know if it does?

There should be a call for the Chief's resignation. Recently Chief Carl asked the Town to revoke the Sport's Pub license because a bartender there "possibly" over-served someone and that person was then involved in a fatal accident, (killing a highway worker on Rt. 9).

Chief Carl was in charge of the Stamps massacre, (police logs show he was "in town" at midnight, then again after the killing)... if he won't resign, the Town should revoke his license (to be Chief).
