That's why the best response is to keep publicizing the murder instead of letting them bury it.

I think that is about as likely as them calling Gil Grisom back in to investigate it!

I would like to think that all of what you wrote will happen, but the cynic in me just can't see it ever happening. :confused5

What I think will happen is that there will be insufficent evidence to call it anything but a righteous shoot. They are not about to throw 3 murd....whoops officers under the bus and place themselves in the media spotlight. LV is almost as corrupt as Chicago so I don't expect anything but plaudits for the shooters and a villifying of Mr Scott.

The inquest has begun. You can watch streaming video of the inquest. Right now jurors are being selected.

They just asked how many potential jurors in the Voir Dire how many had CWP's. There were only 2 and each stated they would not be biased one way or the other.

Currently reading out on the toxicology results with some very interesting findings about what was in his blood stream and the levels of those items.

The coroner has completed her testimony. Erik was shot once in the chest and thigh, once through the left armpit and four times in the back. One shot traveled upward through his left buttock and ended up near his liver on the right side of his body. Erik had lethal doses of prescription morphine and zanax (both are depressants) in his body, however he must have habituated to them because he appeared to be functioning normally.

This is the worst news I have heard yet. Will probably be used against him.

I'd like to see a hair follicle regression that shows his long term drug history. With the position he held he appeared to be EXTREMELY functional. And from his appearance he appeared extremely fit - I mean work out every day kinda fit looking. On that much pain management (morphine) and on that kind of fitness regime? I'm not one that buys into conspiracies but this is starting to stink.

And why does any of this matter? If they yelled stop and he did not reach for his gun and they opened fire shooting him in the back several times then how does ANY of this matter? Isn't the sequence of events the only thing that matters here. I don't get it. I mean even if he was on every drug known to mankind and he was leaving the Costco after he ate a candy bar without paying for it first how is that relevant? The only thing I want to hear about is the sequence of events in the shooting.
