"The issues in your project are huge and impact of what you are doing will be felt everywhere: I spent over 10 years as a law enforcement official in different capacities and from my perspective, someone sworn to uphold the law is held to a higher and much different standard than those who are not. So when someone violates that Oath, that action is magnified because of who they are, what they do and what they have been charged to do. There is nothing more low-down than corrupt LEO."

I have known Mr. King for several years now and have witnessed his dedication to purpose involving law enforcement issues. In reviewing this project as a licensed private investigator I will be first in line at the box office to see the final film. I applaud him and anyone who has helped him to expose the Truth about this case.
Winquist Investigations (Those of you who followed the abusive railroading of Amanda Knox may be familiar with some of their work).
Along the way he issued derogatory commentary about Liko Kenney and Mr. King, while issuing just enough praise of Mr. King to avoid the outright appearance of exploitation. He also uses his old pal and Rhode Island State Trooper Marc Lidsky to downplay the magnitude of the wrongs that Bruce McKay committed when he weaponized his Tahoe as a battering ram and Pepper-sprayed Liko Kenney without any warning whatsoever, in clear cut violation of Franconia town Standard Operating Procedures. That's a fact.
Sorry I haven't gotten back to you, I'm still waiting on dates and confirmation from Dr. Petrosino. The stumbling block is that Casey wants a speaking fee. His fee is typically $1000 but he says he will do it for $500. As you know this is a State school so money is not plentiful. Dr. P is going to the Dean to see if the school has the money. Also, Casey says he only speaks by himself and usually it is for one hour with questions and answers to follow. That may be problematic. In fact, we were offering to have the bookstore buy some of his books and sell them or even have a book signing.
The intent is to get the Moakley Center, which is a state of the art auditorium with a large capacity. I think if we can't pay Casey that we could still have you and Brad come and do a question and answer. I am assuming you have a presentation of some sort. Talk to you soon.

Well George I don't know that should keep us from presenting.
I will also email Casey and see if he would consider giving up a freebie but even if he doesn't, I think that if you bill a former Franconia Officer and Former AAG (both noted in the book) as coming to discuss ongoing investigations there will still be a large turnout.
What do you think?
