and is again what I call….. LEGAL MURDER! An update to COPS THAT MURDER.
Circuit Judge John David Preston dismissed the case against the state of Ky in the wrongful death case of a Johnson County man, Randy Baldwin. and the Ky State trooper that shot Randy point blank in the chest, has asked the court to dismiss the lawsuit against him as well.
The judge dismissed the case against the KSP based upon sovereign immunity, which says that:
“actions can be brought only against a person and not a government “entity”.”
The Ky state cop that murdered Randy Baldwin in Dec 2007 – Trooper Byron Hansford – says that rule should also apply to him! citing, “Should the court determine that KSP is entitled to government immunity, state law official capacity claims should be dismissed against him too for the following reason:
“Under Ky law, a public official sued in his/her ‘official’ capacity possesses the same immunity from suit that would be possessed by the public agency employer under similar circumstances,” stated Roger Wright, attorney representing the murdering state cop, byron hansford.
Now come on, read the above closely, and get the full meaning of it. If the state cop is granted immunity from lawsuit, then any cop can just shoot -murder- someone, and cry, “but they can’t sue the state, so they can’t sue me!” But wait a minute, WHY WOULD THAT JUDGE DISMISS THE CASE AGAINST THE KSP IN THE FIRST PLACE?!! It was murder! albeit, LEGAL MURDER.
as always, we love you Randy
Sovereign immunity From Wikipedia
Sovereign immunity, or crown immunity, is a type of immunity that in common law jurisdictions traces its origins from early English law. Generally speaking it is the doctrine that the sovereign or state cannot commit a legal wrong and is immune from civil suit or criminal prosecution; hence the saying, “the king (or queen) can do no wrong”. In many cases, states have waived this immunity to allow for suits; in some cases, an individual may technically appear as defendant on the state’s behalf.
