From what I have heard, the guy driving the truck was drunk, and had earlier been in a bar where the guy who was hit worked. The guy who got hit refused to serve the young man any alcohol because he was intoxicated. The young guy apparently seemed angry at this turn of events. The guy who was hit and who refused to serve the young man earlier was well-known for walking between these two towns--a distance of about 1 mile. Rumor has it it might not be a complete accident. Maybe they meant to scare him, maybe to kill him, maybe just a coincidence. It makes for a convenient "accidental" death though.

Yes, Reins was drunk and had went into the bar where Fred has refused to serve him a drink. I am sorry but Fred had never really walked on the East side of the road. That is where they are saying he got hit! Why does that seem odd that that night he changed his mind and walked on the east side of the road, and got hit. Fred will be missed very much, and for Reins, I hope that the blood stains on the road are a reminder to him of what he had done to a good man that never deserved anything like this. He will be greatly missed!

link, yes yes, its no surprise, the small fry areas are senior frauds, and you will note that when its chicken cult frauds employed within small fry county are confronted off guard in out of county areas where there is no one to back fraud them, they run like cowards for nothing. you got it, as the whole USA knows about the yellow stripe on the backs of the small fry hick trash departments reputations of being actual employee pedophiles, judge frauds evidence conceals and senior fraud conceals !!McPherson Police Chief Dennis Shaw.

Two McPherson, Kansas, police officers snatched the cane of a 79-year-old woman, handcuffed her and dragged her across a parking lot, causing her to have a heart attack, according to a lawsuit filed Monday in the U.S. District Court for the district of Kansas.

"If somebody had simply called me and explained me this story," says the woman's lawyer, Matthew Bretz, "I probably wouldn't have believed it.

But he does believe it. Because the entire incident, he says, was caught on video.

The suit accuses officers Richard Rogers and John Farley, of the McPherson Police Department, of violating senior citizen Velma Fortune's civil rights by arresting her without probable cause and then "prying Plaintiff's cane away from her, handcuffing her hands behind her back, dragging her across a parking lot, and dumping her on the pavement," at a Shell gas station on April 13, 2010.

While on the pavement, Fortune had a heart attack and was then rushed to the McPherson Hospital.

"You can hear the breathing problems she was having on the video," says Bretz.

In their official police report, Rogers and Farley claim they did everything by the books. But the eye in the sky doesn't lie. When the officers got out of their cars, the camera behind the windshield of each of their police cruisers (the cameras commonly used on shows with names like World's Wildest Police Chases) automatically turned on, says Bretz.

Why did the police approach Fortune in the first place? Bretz says he can't comment on that because of client confidentiality.(For the record, Fortune has not been charged with any crime.)

In a statement to Daily RFT, McPherson Police Chief Dennis Shaw defends his officers:


On Tuesday 4/13/10, officers responded to a disturbance at a local service station, involving a 79-year-old female, who was very agitated and refused to leave the premises. The officers were unsuccessful in getting the woman to cooperate. She was eventually taken into custody. Pursuant to policy, the person was handcuffed and the cane was removed from the person. She refused to walk with assistance from the officers and she was carried under her arms a short distance in an effort to put her into the patrol car

link, but after all, in a open illegal incest cult county of muder and baby anus rapes with meth drug crime conceals running through small fry hick trash department of exposed state frauds, its no surprise, and its good to see more out of county high power state judges learning more and more about the employees illegal state crimes right through the county !!McPherson resident Ronald Eugene Cruzen Jr. was found guilty of three felony charges Thursday in connection with the May 2011 murder of Justin Milne.
As part of a plea agreement reached with McPherson County Attorney David Page, Cruzen pleaded no contest to one count of aiding and abetting in a residential burglary, one count of residential burglary and one count of aiding a felon, all felony charges.
Page said during Thursday’s hearing Cruzen drove Dustin Tyler Smith, also of McPherson, to a McPherson residence with the intent of murdering Milne.
He also helped Smith by providing him a box knife to cut out a section of carpet that was evidence in the murder case, Page said.
After Smith left his house, Cruzen purportedly burglarized Smith’s house before going to law enforcement hours later.
Cruzen originally was charged with one felony count of conspiracy to commit murder in the first degree, a charge which could have carried a sentence of 109 to 493 months in prison. Instead, Page said he amended the charges after he decided he did not have the evidence to prove the case.
“We didn’t negotiate to come off the conspiracy for the sake of negotiation,” Page said.“I would not have been able to prove conspiracy, although it initially appeared there was evidence there.”
As a part of the agreement, Cruzen will have to cooperate in the prosecution’s case against Smith, whose preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 5.
Despite the lesser charges, Cruzen still faces considerable prison time and fines. Both the charge of aiding and abetting in residential burglary and of residential burglary could send Cruzen to prison for 11 to 34 months, and the charge of aiding a felon carries an additional seven to 23 months. Each charge could include up to a $100,000 fine.
Sentencing was tentatively scheduled for 9 a.m. March 12, although Judge Richard Walker, who presided over Thursday’s hearing, acknowledged that date would be postponed until after Smith’s trial to ensure Cruzen’s cooperation in its proceedings
