Thread: CCW Holder shot by LVMPD - Justified?????

  1. #251
    This has nothing to do with the case but a Dr. prescribed prednisone one time for a shoulder injury. After a couple of days I had to quit that stuff and then went into withdrawal. I called his office and told the nurse that I had quit taking it and she said "You can't do that"! I said "I know that now". That was the weirdest feeling I have ever had and learned that I was of a group that can't take it. It didn't make me go into any kind of rage or anything lilke that but I had lost control of my whole body and had no sensation of my arms or legs being any part of my body. If he was taking that many different drugs there is a good chance that he really didn't understand what the cops were ordering him to do and definitely wasn't thinking clearly.

    A very bad situation.

    I find the recent replies about drugs to be very interesting. Funny that no one trashing the LEOs and calling for their heads knew any of this drug information about the young man before they began their insinuations. As a I said in my last reply, if the LV LEOs were at fault, letum hang for all I care--it's just the fact that these repliers really knew nothing, and the incidents leading to the LEOs even being called and then the shooting just did not make any sense--and if it does not make any sense, odds are an out and out execution does not either. I have seen cases of fatal traffic accidents that have taken months before official reports have been issued--it is not called "coverup", it is called "due diligence". You may disagree with me but getting personal is ridiculous and I will be the first one to say to the LEO naysayers that you were right and I was wrong.

    My Mom had emphysema and to help her be strong enough to breath she was on prednisone. If you decide to come off of this drug you must do it gradually or deal with weird affects. It made my mother paranoid, nervous and a bit hallucinatory if she came off of it too fast.

    I'll just bet you do. Look kelcarry, no one is "trashing" anyone, or "calling for LEO's heads", or any of this other personally concocted bull$h!t you keep throwing around this board. I agree with you, if they're guilty let 'em hang. But you're simply reaching in an half a$$ed attempt to defend them. The very fact of the matter is you don't know if they're "innocent" anymore than I do they are guilty. Let's only look at what we know.

    1.) This man was a West Point graduate with an impeccable record. As was mentioned by others, these guys are trained to follow orders impeccably. In the history of West Point how many of their graduates have pulled guns on LEO's?

    2.) The LVPD has had a continual history of this sort of thing. There has NEVER been a wrongful shooting laid at their doorstep of this department in how many shootouts over a period of how many years?

    3.) The cops are dragging their feet refusing to say anything to anyone for coming up on 3 MONTHS NOW.

    4.) Witnesses have come forth since this shooting all stating they saw no weapon in his hand at the time he was shot.

    Now, I'm not saying these guys should be filleted and fried based on only that, but it doesn't look very good. This family deserves answers that the police simply refuse to give. They deserve more respect than that, as does Eric Scott. No one is getting it, and the cops appear to care less about any of it. There appears to be CYA going on here all the way up to the top. If not, then let them prove otherwise. But they are going to have to SPEAK to do it. It's as simple as that. But still nothing. You are the one who is bringing "drug use" into this based on your complete lack of knowledge of what, if anything he was in fact taking, let alone what effect it may or may not have had on him. I, like many want to know why the police are wearing out the soles of their shoes dragging them. Now, if that is "bashing" in your book, and or "calling for their heads", you need to stop typing and purchase a dictionary. Bill T.

    It was while I was taking it that I felt so weird. I had no sensation at all that my hands were even connected to my body. When I stopped I went into the DT's like an addict coming down off of a high. I took a few more to try and taper off but that was the last I took of that. The Dr. said that some people jist have an unusual reaction to it and shouldn't take it. Since then I have found that I have problems with any type of steroid and avoid them if I can. When you have had shoulder, neck and knee surgery and are working on having back surgery you search for alternatives. I can handle hydrocodone but not oxycodone or morphine. My options are getting smaller all the time.

    Yep, Whole thing.
    Started with jury; 4 were ousted, one for being a LVMPD employee. 2 of the 7 jurors are CCW holders. Did not look good for Erik's family. Doctor testimonies all day made him look like a substance abuser and a felon for getting perscription drugs from multiple doctors. The last doc was badgered as the pusher for his knowledge of it. The one witness that did testify today was an 89 year old lady who does'nt know anything about guns but said she was distracted when the officers clip hit the ground. Hmmm doesn't know the differance between a revolver or a semi auto but knows what a clip or magazine is????? Continues tomorrow, very one sided though.

    I watched about 4 hours today. I was surprised they didn't call his babysitter from the 70's to testify that he took children's aspirin. That lady at the end that was distracted by the "clip" hitting the ground was too much. I would think all those gunshots would have been enough to distract her since she claims to have been only 8 feet from Mr. Scott but it was the "clip" hitting the ground that sent her running back inside Costco to hide. Strange she didn't see or hear the other cops that fired their weapons so I guess they weren't really there. Yes, it is very one sided from what I witnessed today. I hope they call some of the other witnesses that said he didn't pull a weapon. But I think we will only hear from the ones who confirm the cops story. Will be watching tomorrow.

    None of this surprises me in the least. Bill T.

    It is a shame that people are still defending this guy. The inquest is not over, but it is onesided, I agree. Onesided in the sense that witnesses are saying he pulled his gun (this is not new. LVRJ reported and quoted at least some witnesses within days of the shooting verifying this), he was an addict with lethal amounts of drugs in his system, ( 4 x the lethal amount of morphine, wonder how he built up to that amount?)was unable to walk straight, he threatened to shoot an unarmed man because of his dog, at least one dr refused to prescribe him more drugs because he went through in two weeks, a 4 week supply, he was depressed, and even tried to illegally obtain more prescription drugs.

    It would be amazing to me if metro had gotten all these people together to conspire with lies to cover up their role. Impressive, yes, but unlikely.

    Still, on his behalf is the scott family atty, who said a witness looked "nervous" and that scott was an "upstanding guy" .

    I am not trashing a man who apparently diligently served his country and suffered a broken back, causing excruciating pain. I am repeating information (facts) from the articles below.
    CORONER'S INQUEST: 911 tape: Scott was angry, couldn't walk straight before shooting - News - ReviewJournal.com

    CORONER'S INQUEST: Scott portrayed in inquest as depressed man addicted to painkillers - News - ReviewJournal.com

    I am STILL giving him the benefit of the doubt until all the information is in. The cops deserve the same, whether anyone is going to give it or not.
