|Wolfe: 'Overkill' in SWAT raid||January 20, 2011|
|Harold J. Wolfe 508-877-5541||Metrowest Daily News|
Gerry Leone's extraordinary cover-up behind Eurie Stamps' killer is now complete. The name of the killer is being withheld by all relevant law enforcement agencies and the search warrants were sealed by Judge Stoddart.
I only want to know two facts. Who the killer was and how many people were witnesses to the killing? If there was only two, dead men tell no tales. The police can make up their fairy tale.
There are four types of homicide: felonious, excusable, justifiable and praiseworthy. Steven Casey's 2007 kill was praiseworthy since he received the William Welch award for it. How repugnant! Steven Casey's name was known the day after his kill.
Sahr Josiah's name was known the day after he allegedly shot officer Philip Hurton and I do not remember a 3-4 week investigation on his guilt or innocence by the Middlesex DA.
This extreme bias toward police establishes a strong double standard between police and civilian and helps to set up a police state in Massachusetts. I expect Gerry Leone's report will not become public since he arrogantly states that we may not be deserving of his knowledge.
A midnight SWAT attack on a minor drug dealer was literally dramatic overkill. This was not the operational center of a drug cartel. Was the outcome worth the effort? Will there be another police award coming?
Release the killer's name. If it's Steven Casey, we have a serial killer cop.
Sunlight is the best disinfectant.
