    This is the testimony from the dr who did the autopsy. I don't get why you would not believe it. What are you basing this on?

    Let me explain some legal things to you Bill T. I am not an atty but have testified in court and been deposed many times. Eyewitness testimony is not hearsay and IS admissible in court, despite your belief that it is not.

    A doctor testifying to his or her work on a victim is not hearsay and IS admissible in court, despite your belief that it is not.

    Erik Scott's dr's testifying to their treatment of him and his depression and drug addiction is not hearsay and IS admissible in court despite your belief that it is not.

    Witness testimony is usually the least reliable of all possible evidence. It is even more worthless when the witnesses never get cross-examined !

    Sounds like a rigged proceeding set up merely to smear the victim and whitewash the LEO.

    I cannot imagine how this is supposed to get to the bottom of this mess.

    This reminds me of Janet Reno investigating herself over the Waco fiasco!

    When an employee testifies, the company has to appoint an atty to represent that person. That is all. You can speculate about the "look on his face" all day long, but it undermines any attempt at credibility you try to claim. The company is not the main focus here anyway, the cops are.

It is truly a shame that this case, as discussed in this forum, has degenerated to this point. Just wish billt would lighten up a bit and chill. I can feel his quickening pulse go off the charts---he seems to have a big problem with LEOs and a bigger problem with anyone who disagrees with him.
    Yep, you got that one dead on. To someone like him, God himself could come down from heaven and take him back in time and watch the whole event. If it showed that Scott caused this whole thing, Billy would say "God, you are in on the coverup too!!!!!"

    If there is any official culpability in this mess it's between the Nevada State Medical Association and the County Sheriff for not coordinating the revocation of his permit, assuming he was in fact legally permitted to carry in the first place, before his drug problem started.

    The link above is to anoter site where there is quite a discussion about a man impersonating a Green Beret.

    Lierley said that after a peaceful interaction between Scott and manager Vince Lopez, he saw Scott tearing merchandise tags from multiple coolers and packages of water bottles. Lierley said he then noticed the handgun in Scott's waistband and told Lopez, who informed Scott that guns are not allowed in the store.

    "Next thing you know, Mr. Scott ... gets up and says, 'I'm a Green Beret. You need to check the (expletive) Constitution.' And it was just real quick, real snapped. And at that point, it made me step back because he had a firearm," Lierley said.
    A lot has been made about him being a West Point grad but that doesn't mean a whole lot to me. In my small neighborhood (40 homes) there is a least 1 West Point grad, one neighbor has a son that is a recent grad of WP and another has two children in the Naval Academy right now. I turned down an appointment to the Air Force Academy. Being a WP Grad doesn't make you super human. As for a Duke MBA I know several of those including some former co-workers and a few relatives. Also nice but not extraordinary.

    What we have is a man with a less-than-impecable reputation (unlike what has been reported) with his personality being altered by drugs (maybe legal or naybe not but definately affecting his actions) causing a disturbance in a store. Maybe the Costco employees overreacted and the police probably did overreact but it appears to me that they were going on the best information that they had. It had a tragic ending but the dead man is not without fault and to call the LEO murderers is not correct. I think his father knew what happened from the start and his whole media campaign is just to try an end run around the facts like a politician with his hand caught in the cookie jar.

    As for the missing video the whole conspiracy deal here is nothing but a theory. We just installed a new video sytem where I work and I wouldn't bet you 10 cents on it being able to prove anything.

    I am just tired of some people trying to make Scott out to be some sort of super human nice guy who was gunned down in cold blood by a police hit squad.

    "Mr. Scott ... gets up and says, 'I'm a Green Beret. You need to check the (expletive) Constitution..."

    Unfortunately you will find this mindset in many. Dude obviously had the reality distortion field cranked up on high. Our Constitution is a wonderful thing, but it cannot protect us from our own stupidity.

    Here's the thing...

    • No Store/Surveillance Video, except the cop car pulling into the parking lot whatsoever - Highly Suspect from a place known to be anal about Store/Surveillance...
    • No Dash-cam Video from the cops - Highly Suspect from a state that mandates every cop car & bike have a fricking cam...
    • The cop William Mosher whom CLAIMS he was drawn on (Not the first time he has been in the public eye for this very thing either)... looks like he spends more time at the donut shop; then at the gym; his picture is on the cover of the LVRJ this am... along with the 2nd consecutive hit piece in as many days by the LVRJ and continued character assassination coverage from the coroners inquest in process...
    • No Nevada cop has ever been convicted OR charged in a wrongful shooting...
    • Erik Scott - West Point Grad, and model citizen (the victim) was shot SEVEN TIMES center chest and never fired a round...
    • Thus-far ONE-Doctor testified Erick Scott had potentially fatal levels of pain killers (prescribed for his legitimate chronic pain) in his blood stream, which could have made him delusional; ALTHOUGH, completely omitted that it is a well-known fact that individuals taking pain killers over long periods of time for chronic pain become so-adjusted to them, that they need exponentially higher-then-normal doses just to make it through the day; further, that they are far from delusional under these circumstances... Additionally, I have several friends, fellow veterans, and family members taking prescribed douses of pain-killers that would kill a normal person; and talking with them you would not be able to tell they were under such medication...
    • "If we had two sides, the family's attorney could have objected or asked the witnesses questions," said Maggie McLetchie, an attorney for the Nevada ACLU. "It seems to me what the district attorney is doing is demonizing Erik Scott, that he deserved to die. The jury is being poisoned." - Source: Las Vegas coroner's inquest in police slaying of Erik Scott raises questions about process | | The Reno Gazette-Journal

    I will say it again, this reeks of corruption and cover up...

    Without Video, everything is hearsay, and conjecture and can be manipulated and distorted for the desired result by those cover up the facts...

    • Tired of Innocent Nevadans getting killed by police officers?
    • Tired of a ONE-SIDED Corners Inquest System?

    Conspiracy Theory?

    Bo, just curious, this may be a little off topic, but do you believe the 9-11 attacks were a government conspiracy? That the WTC towers were taken down by a controlled detonation, an airliner did not strike the Pentagon, and the crash site near Shanksvile was faked?

    Any or all of that?

    Just curious...

    From what I get out of the testimony so far is that everyone is right and everyone is wrong although testimony seems to indicate Mr. Scott definitely had a problem and his actions in the store and outside the store, particularly since he had one (or two) firearms, was a recipe for an unfortunate outcome. It does seem suspicious that the Costco tape, which would have shown all, apparently did not work during the critical time frame in question. I wonder if they have ever had such problems with the tapings during the time the store has been in operation. If such failures have happened in the past, it would make this failure believable. If there have never been such failures before and this happened this one time, the coincidence would be improbable at best and essentially implausable. It would and is a shame that conflicting testimony is all that is available when a picture would have been worth the proverbial thousand words.
