I haven’t been doing a very good job keeping you up to date with the work of Mike McDaniel, my Confederate Yankee co-blogger who has been following the Erik Scott case with more intensive coverage than anyone on the Internet.
For those of you unfamiliar with Mr. Scott, he was a former Army officer and West Point graduate that was shot and killed by Las Vegas Metropolitan police officers earlier this year outside of a Costco after civilian store security officer called 911 to report a man with a gun after Scott was “made” as a concealed carry permit holder. Accounts vary wildly as to what exactly occurred, but the simple fact remains that a man is dead after being shot multiple times by three police officers giving him conflicting orders and very little warning.
Mike has posted three major updates to his coverage of the Scott case since the last update noted here.
- Update 7: Competence versus Coverup looks at the existing evidence and comes to the conclusion that LVMPD officers and others may be involved in a cover-up to exonerate officers that illegally took Scott’s life.
- Update 7.2 examines the law enforcement harassment of Erik Scott’s girlfriend Samantha Sterner and other supporters of the Scott Family in what looks like a campaign of law grade intimidation.
- Update 8: Eyewitnesses, Video and Coincidence looks at the multiple conflicting claims surrounding the damaged Costco video surveillance camera hard drive and the possibility that video of Scott’s shooting does exist… or at least did.
I’ll warn you in advance that these are all long posts, but well worth the read, if your blood pressure can stand it.
