The tarnished badge

Applying the same rationale (which we all must do regardless of the case or circumstances or the people involved, then) Mr. Rieders and the posters here would be equally praising of the juries in the OJ Simpson and Caylee Anthony trials, too.

I am not a fan of Mr. Reiders, but I agree with him completely here. Thank you for a well stated letter, even though it will likely change no minds.

Localguy- beware of tone of voice and excessive finger pointing. You can get arrested for that now.

of the case which should have been clearly obvious in the trial. The Shrey’s should have asked WBP before using a pin that depicts their badge. They should have also asked LL to use their logo or whatever may have been on the pin. I have not seen the pin in question so I may be speaking out of line concerning what was on it. According to the excerpts, they had violated Trademark laws though. This is a terrible court case that was flimsy at best, with way too many discrepancies!

I agree it is a very good letter. I followed this case minimally and have some thoughts. Of course I’m only reading the reports from the SG on the case with excerpts of testimony. I believe somehow the Detectives got wind of the pins being sold. Was it through LL or the Police Secretary? That’s the question, because it seems the Secretary has no idea and LL can’t recall informing the Police. I also find it interesting that the Shrey’s said there were a total of pins, 600 plus; but logged into evidence were 500 some. Who is lying here about the amount of pins truly confiscated? The Shrey’s said in testimony that they could have sold some of the pins and the exact number is off. Another point that the Shrey’s are possibly lying about is Kontz’s tone of voice and gestures of finger pointing. A witness even pointed to firsthand account that Kontz’s tone was nothing but conversational with the Shrey’s. I hope an appeal of this case comes forthwith and points out the many discrepancies o

Mr. Rieders, This is a very good letter and one I agree with implicitly. We cannot pick and choose what to follow in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, we must follow it all if this grand experiment in freedom, liberty and self-government are to work. The more we adhere to those organic laws , the more free and prosperous all become.
