The Talbot Case – Murder trial begins

January 7, 2010
By

The Talbot murder trial is finally underway in Suffolk Superior Court.

We hope that this trial will finally and forever determine the true events that took place late on a summer night more than 2 years ago on the ball field behind Revere High School.

It was on that ball field that Revere Police Officer Daniel Talbot was shot to death.

We want this trial to establish exactly what happened, right down to who exactly pulled the trigger, what weapon exactly was used, who were the true perpetrators of this ghastly crime?

It is important and it is right that justice must be done in this case that has taken so long to come to trial.

The innocent must be let free.

The criminals must be made to suffer.

    Revere Daniel Talbot murder case begins amidst controversy over Police attire.
    Update: No uniforms. Well awwwwwrighty then, here is today’s Boston Herald story.

    I spoke with Defendant Iacoviello’s Attorney, Peter B. Krupp this morning, who informs that they are still selecting a Jury. Here is what I have to say:

    Query, were the cops wearing their uniforms while they were busy breaking the law? If not, then why wear them now?

    There is something fishy in Denmark. You need to look at the entire history of the case, and even if it was a cold-blooded murder (which I tend to doubt) have there ever been any toxicology tests run on the LE and girlfriend who were breaking the law? What, still no punishments for LE who were drinking all day, brandishing weapons and drinking and potentially doing drugs at the schoolyard? Smells like the same gloss-over that’s going down with reportedly coke-faced Jake Joey Fasano.

    If it was a cold-blooded murder then those facts will be adduced at trial and the punishment should be the maximum permitted by Law.

    Anyway, at least they fired Ervin Franklin, what a complete waste of taxpayer money he was. See the TOUCH 106.1 FM Disorder in the Court post and an April, 2008 post from my own KingCast blog.

    Just the facts, please.

    Yet there is more:

    http://touchfmboston.blogspot.com/2010/01/daniel-talbot-trial-continues-connect.html

    Lieutenant Stephen Walsh, the Chief Collision Reconstruction Specialist who responded. Turns out there was a bullet hole (at this point of unknown origin to me) in the bumper of a Tahoe with chrome rims on it, and there was a bullet hole or bullet lodged in the tire, which was of course, flat. F-L-A-T. Flat.

    He performed X distance/Y angle/Z elevation forensic testing using highly sophisticated equipment “It’s very similar to connect the dots…. it’s good for two miles.” He stated further, partially slitting the State’s case neatly in the jugular, perhaps not even realizing it:

    “I think I arrived after all of the evidence had been gathered last guy there. We’re often an afterthought and it was that way that day too.”

    Attorney Krupp: Anyone show you bullet hole and tire flat together?
    Lieutenant Walsh: I was not doing forensic work on this vehicle.
    Q: Anyone draw your attention to the tire.
    A: I don’t recall.
    Q: Anyone asked to show the location of the bullet hole in the tire.
    A: Not asked to perform a trajectory analysis.
    Q: Were you asked to try?
    A: No.
    Q: Are there people in the state police who do trajectory analysis?
    A: I don’t know.
    Q: Were you even shown the rod that was put through the bumper to the tire?
    A: I don’t recall being shown any such rod.

    ……more (much more) at the linky.
