Why judge acquitted St. Louis cop of first-degree murder
Associated Press, September 16, 2017

Image
St. Louis Circuit Judge Timothy Wilson

[....]
DID THE OFFICER PLANT THE GUN?
Prosecutors argued the presence of Stockley’s DNA — and absence of Smith’s DNA — on the gun proved the gun must have been planted by the officer.

But the defense countered that Stockley heard his partner yell “gun” and saw the driver’s hand on a gun as the car sped by him. Stockley testified he did not draw his service revolver and fire until he saw Smith reaching around inside the vehicle after it was stopped. He said Smith changed his demeanor, suggesting he found the gun.

Stockley testified that after the shooting he found the gun tucked down between the seat and the center console, and he rendered the gun safe by unloading cartridges from the cylinder and then left the gun and cartridges on the passenger seat.

In his ruling, Wilson wrote that “a fact issue that is central” to the case is whether Smith had the gun when he was shot. He found the state’s contention that the officer planted the gun is not supported by evidence.

A full-sized revolver was too large for the officer to hide in his pants pockets and he was not wearing a jacket, the judge said. If the gun had been tucked into his belt, it would have been visible on a bystander’s video that showed Stockley walking between the police car and Smith’s car, he found.

Wilson also noted none of the officers standing next to the vehicle were called to testify that Stockley planted a gun. And he recounted witness testimony that the absence of a person’s DNA on a gun does not mean that person did not touch the gun.

“Finally, the Court observes, based on its nearly thirty years on the bench, that an urban heroin dealer not in possession of a firearm would be an anomaly,” the judge wrote.

DID THE OFFICER’S OUTBURST INDICATE PREMEDITATION?
Smith drove at speeds of up to 87 miles per hour on wet roads, endangering other drivers and pedestrians. About 45 seconds before the chase ended, police dashcam video captured Stockley saying, “going to kill this (expletive), don’t you know it.”

Prosecutors argued that statement proved the officer deliberated about killing Smith even before the pursuit ended.

When questioned about his statement at trial, Stockley said he could not remember saying those words. The ruling noted Stockley testified he had not made a decision to kill Smith and could not recall the context in which the statement was made.

The judge said in his decision that it was apparent from the dashcam audio and video that the pursuit was stressful, both because of its high speed and the confusion caused by multiple radios and communications with the dispatcher.

“People say all kinds of things in the heat of the moment or while in stressful situations, and whether Stockley’s statement … constituted a real threat of action or was a means of releasing tension has to be judged by his subsequent conduct,” the judge wrote.

The court does not believe the officer’s conduct following the end of the pursuit is consistent with the conduct of a person intentionally killing another person unlawfully, Wilson wrote. He noted testimony by the state’s witnesses that Stockley ordered Smith to open the door and show his hands.

It was not until 15 seconds after Stockley arrived the driver’s side door that he took his service revolver out of its holster and fired several shots.

Z is Sooooo Funny..... and the savages "protesting" are so ignorant.

WTF do they want?

Justice has been done.....

Do they want to abolish trials and just throw accused people to a lynch mob? Seems they do.

Talk getting heated... Z is due a dose of pepper spray

Apparently... earlier the mob smashed a police car... that caused police who were staged some distance away to advance.. declare an unlawful assembly.

In Z's delusional world that is still the cops' fault. They put police car there as bait? The protards can not help themselves, have no responsibility for vandalizing a police car if it is parked where they can see it???

Z recapping...

I summarize... everything was the cops fault. The "peaceful protesters" did throw bottles and rocks (z admits it) but that was only after police arrested some people.

In Z's world (apparently) it is quite OK to throw bottles and rocks at police..if they arrest somebody ????

THAT IS SO FUNNY looking back! lol :84

I remember the Oakland Umbrella March and there was ONE person with an umbrella in the entire city and you found him! OMG .. those were the days. I heard Z on his earlier stream say that the police "kettled them in" today. He was always getting kettled b/c he was always in their (police) faces. ;)

It's too dark for me. :roll
I'm listening to both Z and FOX10. FOX is flying over the big mess of highways.

These chants sound like a high school pep rally.

Doing some paper crafting so just listening for now.
LOTS of streams, it's been a while since I've seen this many.

:)

Z being a total ass is bringing back memories of Ferguson.

Molly.... whatever happened to Blossom Masri? (100% HAMAS)

Has he continued his "career " as a stream kid?

He should be here...
