Lot’s of UNANSWERED questions in the Brian Garber murder.

Sheriff attorney answers Garber wrongful death lawsuit

I FIND IT HARD TO BELIEVE THE SHERIFF ANSWERS ANYTHING, ESPECIALLY ON THE RECORD. HIS FRIENDS DEPICT HE’S SCARED AND WILL ONLY TALK TO PEOPLE AT UNDISCLOSED LOCATIONS, HMMM? – MP

Defendants in the wrongful death lawsuit concerning the deputy-involved shooting of Brian Garber are asking for the case to be dismissed. – AS THEIR BUDDY DREW TYLER WOULD SAY…ROTFLMAO, AGAIN AND AGAIN!!!! – MP

Richland County Sheriff’s Office attorney Dan Downey filed a response to Garber’s wife Sara Knowlton’s lawsuit on April 13. He is representing Richland County; the Richland County Board of Commissioners; the Richland County Sheriff’s Office; Sheriff Steve Sheldon; and deputies Jeff Frazier, Andrew Knee, James Nicholson and Donald Zehner. – SO HERE WE ARE AGAIN!!!! – WE HAVE AN OUTSIDE REPRESENTATIVE WITHOUT BAMBI COUCH PAGE DECLARING “CONFLICT OF INTEREST”? NOW YOU KNOW WHY THE COMMISSIONERS ARE ASKING FOR A TAX INCREASE?, ONCE AGAIN HIRING AN OUTSIDE AGENCY BECAUSE OUR ELECTED PROSECUTOR REFUSES TO DO THEIR JOB? THOUGHT THIS WAS OVER WHEN THE LAST ONE SHOT HIMSELF A FEW DAYS AFTER CALLING FOR AN EXECUTIVE SESSION, IN WHICH “BY LAW” CANNOT DO THIS EITHER, YET THE PEOPLE SAY UH-HUH? – MP

Knowlton filed the original lawsuit Jan. 30, adding a ratification count on Feb. 4.

The lawsuit accuses numerous deputies and county agencies of negligence in supervising, training and hiring, which Knowlton says ultimately led to Garber’s death March 16, 2014. – A GOOD PORTION OF AREA RESIDENTS I HAVE TALKED TO AGREE, SOMETHING IS DIRTY IN DENMARK! – MP

The three deputies — Frazier, Nicholson and Knee — who were directly involved in the shooting have already been cleared of criminal charges by a grand jury following an eight-month investigation. I HOPE THIS WRONGFUL DEATH WILL BRING SOME LIGHT TO THIS AND IT TIES CUYAHOGA COUNTY TO HOW MUCH WAS NOT DISCLOSED TO THE HIDDEN JURY, YOU KNOW THAT SPECIAL GROUP OF PEOPLE ONLY GOD KNOWS??? SURELY THEY ARE NOT IN HARMS WAY, UNLESS YOU BELIEVE IN RETRIBUTION BY CROOKED DEPUTY’S? YOU KNOW, EVEN THE KIND WHO WILL COME TO YOUR WORK TO INTIMIDATE WHILE INTOXICATED – MP

The defendants’ answer denies most of the lawsuit’s claims.

One specific clarification defendants repeatedly make is that Knee was not Zehner’s “trainee” the night of the shooting. Rather, he is “an experienced law enforcement officer.” – NICE! – BUT WE WANT TO FOCUS ON THE PRIMARY SHOOTER WHO TAKES MEDS FOR DEPRESSION, IRONICALLY SHOOTING ONE WHO WAS DEPRESSED WHO DIDN’T HAVE HIS? – MP

Later, the reply states Knee was hired Feb. 14, 2014, about a month before the shooting. He was “in a training period of his employment on March 16,” it says. – USING ONE OF YOUR LIBERAL FRIENDS RESPONSES, WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES THIS MATTER, DEPUTY KNEE WAS NOT THE ONE WHO INITIATED CONTACT, THAT WAS DEPUTY FRAZIER. WHAT WE NEED TO FIND OUT IT WHY DEFLECTION TACTICS WERE USED TO PUT “FOCUS” ON DEPUTY ZEHNER WHO WAS NOT THERE BY LATER REPORTS, YOU KNOW THE NEW STUFF THAT CAME OUT 8 MONTHS LATER??? – MP

The two parties did agree in one area: Both are seeking a jury trial.

A JURY TRIAL IS GREAT! – NOW LETS SEE WHAT A JUDGE IN CLEVELAND WILL WANT TO HEAR OR NOT HEAR SHALL WE? IT WILL BE INTERESTING WHEN THERE’S SO MUCH TO REVISIT. I HAVE A SPECIAL PAGE DEDICATED TO BRIAN IN WHICH YOU TOO CAN SEE SOMETHING IS FISHY HERE – http://www.mansfieldersperspective.com/BrianGarber_NOJUSTICE_NOPEACE.html

The lawsuit has been scheduled for a Case Management Conference at 9 a.m. June 2 in front of Judge Dan Polster in Cleveland. Parties are required to attend in person.

Garber was shot and killed after a report of a domestic violence incident at his home last March. He reportedly told deputies he had a gun and threatened to use it against them before they shot him 14 times. – THE FIRST TIME WE HEARD THIS REPORT – MP

The incident, from deputies entering Garber’s parent’s home to the call for an ambulance, lasted 95 seconds. – YET IT WAS SAID THEY TOOK NECESSARY TIME TO TALK HIM OUT??? – MP

The amount of compensatory and punitive damages sought by Garber’s family has not been disclosed. – NOT SEEKING MONETARY DAMAGES, “JUSTICE” WILL DO, SOMETHING MOST AREA RESIDENTS DON’T BELIEVE HAPPENS WITH OUR LEGAL SHAM PROCESS HERE!
