The News & Messenger breaks the story about David Ruttenberg’s appeal to the 4th Circuit in the Rack n’ Roll scandal telling Ruttenberg that they wouldn’t print it unless they released the information to him first, instead of here. Oh, well. At least they published a nice photo of a police officer pointing a gun at people after the judge ruled that pointing weapons at people never happened during the raid.
Ruttenberg’s brief contains statements from six people who were in the pool hall when the task force entered Rack ‘N Roll to begin the inspection.
One witnesses stated in Ruttenberg’s brief that the officers had “pistols pointed like they were going to shoot somebody.”
Another stated “I knew if I said anything to piss these guys off, I risked getting shot.”
Attorneys for the City of Manassas Park again referred to the security recordings, which they said showed that no Manassas Park police officers “brandished or pointed any weapons during the operation.”
As for that whopper, you look at the picture printed in the article, and you be the judge. The guy in the mask is holding a twinkie he spray painted black or something? Or maybe he’s actually pointing a pistol at people. You be the judge for now, at least until I am able to get more information for you. The judge in the case ruled that it’s impossible this is a weapon, and refused to let the case go to a jury. You might think otherwise, that quite possibly this is a weapon.
I’ll have more on this later after I have time to get through all the information I received tonight. Stay tuned for some absolutelty unbelievable stuff. Of course long time readers should be pretty used to that, after seeing stuff like “Let’s Go To The Video Tape #1“. This case is nothing but the incredible, uttery insane stuff you would never think a local police department would stoop to, but the mountain of evidence demonstrates theyactually did.
