veteran detective Roy Dunaway said under oath that Belinda Hope Mercer admitted to him,“I shot him, I shot him,”

the only thing is
She never said,‘I shot him, I shot him.’ I don’t know why I said that, don’t know why I said it, it just came out,” the detective admits in an affidavit, which the District Attorney’s Office filed in Davidson County Criminal Court last week.

DETECTIVE Dunaway has since been demoted to a patrol officer.

He should have been dismissed

He should have been fired or better yet charged with perjury. I think that is ridiculous that an officer of the law should go essentially unpunished for what was apparently perjured testimony.

Some people are above the law,at least in their minds and the minds of others. This is why I say the F.B.I. and the T.B.I. NEED to investigate the entire law enforcement and judiciary system here.Look at the state trooper who had a porn star perform oral sex on him, while he was on duty. Should we be paying someone to commit a crime(sex in public is a crime,the last time I checked) I'm sure he isn't the only one who has done this sort of thing he is the only one who recently got reported for it.

I worked for Joe Mercer as his sole legal assistant at the time of his death. Joe confided in me. No one will ever be able to convince me that she "accidentally" shot him.
