Here’s a couple questions that need answers that “the people” in most cases don’t know, or want to know.
“Richland County Prosecutor James Mayer Jr. said Wednesday that the investigation has been turned over to the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office for review.” – Since when is the review turned over to a Prosecutor of another County by another Prosecutor, HE CAN’T DO THAT! I understand that if he has a conflict of interest don’t we have the right to know what the conflict is? I believe his office had a conflict of interest in 2008 when his team prosecuted a man who was protecting his brothers ex-wife from his stalking and abuse of power, why didn’t he get a special prosecutor for that case? A case in which his brother was involved and the Judge who heard the case (Judge DeWeese) a family friend who attended their wedding was the Judge. That was a railroad job and now so this is looking like as well. Appears the 6 months was to baffle the people and today’s last two articles are doing much of the same?
Sure, the MNJ has shared what they are told are PUBLIC RECORDS, think people! If these were PUBLIC RECORDS don’t you think any of us could run down and get a copy? No we can’t! – this is NOT a public record just because it’s on the internet where it can and will disappear. Hopefully you all made a copy to safely keep because the Clerk Linda Frary is not allowed to do her job. Where’s the case or file numbers on these documents, where is the Clerk of Courts stamp of when they were received? These were not received, therefor are not public records. What we have here is what appears to be a bunch of colluded poppycock! In words used by the famous Defense of the FIRED APA SUPERVISOR’s Attorney now Law Director John Spon, hmmm?
“BCI can investigate, but cannot recommend charges.” – Just as the Prosecutor can’t investigate for he/she is to seek Justice nothing more, nothing less!
“The Richland County Prosecutor’s Office requested that a Special Prosecutor be appointed due to a conflict of interest in the matter,” Mayer wrote in a press release. – Who appointed Cuyahoga County Prosecutor? I find it ironically enough Sara Knowlton hired her Attorney’s from the same County, could this mean there’s a DEAL in the works? I hope not because WE WANT JUSTICE – NOT DEALS!!!!
Something else I noticed “funny” about this, tell me what you think?
“Garber was shot and killed by an unidentified Richland County Sheriff’s deputy around 8:30 p.m. March 16, after his wife called 911 saying he had sent her text messages threatening that he had a gun.” – If you look at the initial timeline radio traffic by Zehner was halted at 8:22pm, 8:23pm an Ambulance was called for so don’t you think giving a few minutes here or there this or these Deputy’s could have wrote the said text messages they said Brian made? I find it odd that the texts were almost identical to the timeline when he was MURDERED – Anyone else notice this? The last text that depicted “These pussy cops can throw me in jail put me in prison it doesn’t matter what they do once I’m our UR DEAD!!!” – written at 8:22pm has me scratching my head, especially when his mother said the phone was found at the other end of the bed where he was shot! The same place she saw it the last time she saw him alive! I don’t think he threw it when they opened fired for they said after the fact he had a remote in his hand to justify the though he had a gun.
Let’s see IF the Prosecutor can figure this out?, looks and smells like murder for hire to me! – The TIMELINE the MNJ once reported, Text Message, I wonder what the next message in which he says he’s not afraid is time stamped? –
This is pure fraud people – period!!!!!!
MANSFIELD – Whether charges are warranted in the officer-involved shooting of local Brian Garber is out of Richland County officials’ hands.
Richland County Prosecutor James Mayer Jr. said Wednesday that the investigation has been turned over to the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office for review.
The Bureau of Criminal Investigation, which spent almost six months on an investigation, planned to meet with Mayer last week to turn over its results, but the meeting was canceled, BCI spokeswoman Jill Del Greco said. The results will go directly to Cuyahoga County.
BCI can investigate, but cannot recommend charges.
“The Richland County Prosecutor’s Office requested that a Special Prosecutor be appointed due to a conflict of interest in the matter,” Mayer wrote in a press release.
Public Records: Brian Garber case
The office referred all further inquiries about the incident to Cuyahoga County and the BCI office out of Richfield.
Garber was shot and killed by an unidentified Richland County Sheriff’s deputy around 8:30 p.m. March 16, after his wife called 911 saying he had sent her text messages threatening that he had a gun.
Deputies encountered Brian Garber in an upstairs bedroom at his parent’s home, 3400 Mill Run Road in Lexington. Ultimately, deputies fired at least 16 bullets, killing Brian while he was sitting up in bed, according to previous reports.
Local residents recently joined with Garber’s family in calling for answers in his death.
They’re organizing a second protest for “justice” in his case, alongside Occupy Mansfield, on September 11, in front of the Richland County Courthouse. Garber’s mother, Connie Garber, previously said that justice, to her, means seeing criminal charges come from the case.
