North Carolina Jury convicted Brad Cooper for the Murder of his wife, Nancy Cooper....

Brad Cooper was indicted, tried and convicted....and is now serving a life time sentence without parole for the murder.

A person in the USA is suppose to get a "fair and just trial"
or so the Constitution of the USA states this is a right.

I would encourage anyone who reads this to go to
WRAL.COM and search for "Brad Cooper Murder Trial" and you can "see" for yourself....just how the North Carolina Judicial System works...

Was Brad Cooper indicted on murder charges with
evidence or illusions?

Was Brad Cooper prosecuted or railroaded?

Was Brad Cooper's conviction based on Facts or Fiction?

Was this trial based on gossip or the truth?

Was the whole truth....nothing but the truth....revealed
before the members of the jury in this trial? Or was part of it hidden from the jury members....

All trials should be video taped when a person's life is on the line......so that if and when there is something in question about how the case was handled......there is solid proof of what actually took place....

You might be quite surprised at what you actually see and hear.......but this is REAL....and it affected one man's life forever.

There is no doubt he was railroaded. The police destroyed evidence and the computer was tampered with while in police custody, so the only incriminating evidence was tainted. Yet the judge suppressed the defense witnesses from testifying that the computer was tampered with so the jury didn't get to hear the most important information in the trial. The public did get to hear it though, in Proof testimony for appeal purposes. That is why so much outrage remains.

Someone needs to investigate the Cary Police Department immediately. If the town manager and council members are so certain the police officers' mistakes were "accidental" they should have nothing to hide by initiating an investigation. Their failure to do so speaks volumes of their role in hiding this corruption.

People are needed to VOICE their concerns about this...regardless of what has been said about the law enforcement doing a GOOD JOB....without a doubt those saying this DID NOT WATCH the TRIAL....and it was taped LIVE....all but a few "blackouts" but as I have understood the reason behind this..it was done to "protect" some of the people who were testifying....(perhaps they understood that what they did as being WRONG)....

We, the people who kept up with this trial, saw and know that BRAD COOPER was indeed RAILROADED...
and this SHOULD NOT HAPPEN....in the town of CARY, North Carolina, or in any town in this country...

EVERYONE deserves a "fair and just trial". And anyone can watch the trial themselves and make their own decision about whether or not Brad Cooper GOT A FAIR AND JUST TRIAL.

AN INVESTIGATION OF THE CARY POLICE DEPARTMENT should be demanded.....and one would think that the town manager, mayor and council members would indeed back this up, if they have NOTHING to HIDE....the residents of CARY should DEMAND this much. "THEIR FAILURE TO DO SO SPEAKS VOLUMES OF THEIR ROLE IN HIDING THIS CORRUPTION." I agree with you 100%.

I HOPE AND PRAY THAT WE FIND A WAY TO COMMUNICATE THIS TO EVERY RESIDENT in CARY, NORTH CAROLINA.

BDI: It's not about whether or not he is guilty or innocent. It's about receiving a fair trial. When all the evidence is not presented - it is NOT a fair trial.

I find it interesting that so many people are okay with court injustice. You better hope you are never a victim of it yourself. No one will be there to help you.

There was absolutely NO EVIDENCE to even indict Brad Cooper...
the Grand Jury in North Carolina is NOT NEEDED....if a person
can be indicted on NO EVIDENCE...then explain to me why the
Grand Jury is needed to begin with...

Have you been in court recently? I have...many times...as I have someone very close and dear to my heart...and the system has
violated this person's rights over and over again...

ANYONE and EVERYONE deserves a FAIR AND JUST TRIAL...

I hope that you will go back and view the entire trial on WRAL.COM ...and then decide on this...if you have only read what the media has printed....well...YOU MIGHT BE IN FOR A BIG SURPRISE...

The trial SPEAKS FOR ITSELF...and was open for the PUBLIC TO VIEW...I can assure you...that if you watch it all....YOU MIGHT HAVE A DIFFERENT OPINION of the NC JUDICIAL SYSTEM...and what can happen to anyone at anytime...

You never know when someone else will be sitting in the same seat as Brad Cooper....it could be YOU...through no fault of your own..

You are blinded to the truth. You are supporting a convicted criminal.

So please tell me BDI....have you watched the entire taped video of this so called trial? If so, exactly which part of the "truth" are you referring to? All of the evidence that the CARY POLICE DEPARTMENT DESTROYED? Or all of the "gossip" that was brought up about Nancy and Brad Cooper? This man DID NOT GET A FAIR TRIAL...and if you watched it and think otherwise...you, too, are clueless...no doubt...

I do not know this man....I watched it because I know someone who also had MAJOR problems with how something was handled in Cary...by the law enforcement officers....I just wanted to "see" what went on in this trial...and I was "TOTALLY SHOCKED"....

Supporting a convicted criminal....again...THERE WAS NO SOLID EVIDENCE TO EVEN INDICT THIS MAN...
None...the TRUE BILL was rubber stamped and handed down....

Take the time to watch the trial..and then make a decision....or it you have already seen it....please give us a valid view of how you think this was a fair and just trial....because I would surely like to know....

BDI, instead of making one line statements, please provide some facts that can be discussed.

Brad Cooper should have been found not guilty. Had the jury heard from all the witnesses, I believe he would have.

We can't let this go. He did not receive a fair trial. That can't be disputed.

Interesting on "Free Brad Cooper" Facebook post regarding who would be interested in putting up $2,000. No takers! If you truly believe BC is innocent, put your money where your mouth is. Just a thought!

BDI....I do not think this amount is a drop in the bucket for the amount of money it would take...I am very diappointed that the GRAND JURY even indicted Brad Cooper...but as I was told last year...every case is just rubber-stamped....so it is very obvious that North Carolina does NOT need it....it is just being abused....and costing extra money....but I guess North Carolina has money growing on trees....since they DO NOT NEED EVIDENCE to indict people anyway....one might say it is the luck of the draw....just depends on who or how it is being done...By the way...BDI...I do not think you have answered our question....have you viewed the entire taped video of the BRAD COOPER MURDER TRIAL yet? It can be just a simple YES or NO...

Mimi, I followed the trial in its entirety. I don't have to debate the evidence any longer. I don't have to try to defend the jury's decision. I am offended that the Brad lovers have called the jury idiots among other names. If you truly believe that he's innocent, I encourage you to explore every avenue possible to free him.
I might add that some of the trash that's been posted on Facebook is an indication of the support that he has and this will weigh heavy on the minds of those who could possibly help him. I personally believe he's done and you might as well move on. Hope you and your "friends" are doing well.

So exactly which part of the trial did you feel was FAIR AND JUST, if you do not mind telling me...as there seems to be some "issues" that a lot of people have...I am one of the people who does not know him...I was just interested in seeing how the Cary Police Department investigated this murder...and I was very shocked...but I can assure you that I have seen a lot just by being in court some...I know that there are plea deals made and I also know that people who are innocent go to jail all the time...and this is not right that things like this happen...you might have a different view on this if it was someone you knew...

More Cooper investigation needed

Two weeks have passed since the guilty verdict in the Brad Cooper trial. Having watched the entire trial, I am still in shock at the verdict.

The state's case was weak. They called witness after witness to discuss affairs, financial information and the Cooper's separation. They tried to suggest that domestic violence was at play, but those of us who watched the trial know there was not one shred of evidence to confirm that. Does anyone buy that?

The only piece of evidence linking him to the murder was a Google Maps search found on his computer the day before she disappeared. The defense had a witness prepared to testify about the files found on the computer but the judge wouldn't allow that. The rest of us watching the trial did get to hear from him. If you watch Day 35, Giovanni Masucci testified that during the 27 hour time frame when the police had access to the computer and before it was hashed, multiple files were altered.

This testimony was the most important of the trial but the jury did not get to hear it. The suppression of this evidence resulted in a man being convicted of a crime.

I am asking residents of Wake County to demand an investigation into the mishandling of evidence by the Cary Police Department. Let them know that this is unacceptable. This is not about this man's innocence or guilt. It is bigger than that. It is about one's constitutional rights to a fair trial.

This article has comments from a juror. Now we know that the only evidence that convicted Brad was the Google search - evidence we know is tainted, very likely planted but at the very least it was compromised. There is proof the computer was accessed while in police custody. The judge and DA went to great lengths to keep this crucial defense testimony out of the trial.

Us citizens from Wake County are glad Brad is where he is. Tell him not to drop the soap in the shower.

Guilty: Thanks for the thoughtful reply. I can see that you put a great deal of thought into it.

It is interesting that you have so much trust in the police force that intentionally destroyed evidence from a murder investigation and a DA and judge who worked together to keep critical exculpatory evidence out of the trial. You would have loved Soviet Russia.

Our justice system is upside down right now. We now have defendants considered guilty until proven innocent. I guess you are fine with that, as long as it's not you being accused of the crime?

Brad Cooper was not proven guilty, yet he was convicted. It is a horrible travesty of justice and it makes me sad that anyone in this country is fine with this.
