It's quite obvious that the City Of Tallahassee has their "Good Ol' Boy" Circuit Court Judge Of James O. Shelfer In Their Pocket.A This Judge is very dirty, dishonest and corrupt for not allowing the official reports to be shared with jurors based on the lawsuit.A This judge is obviously protecting the City And Not The Public In His "Kangaroo ...

I so agree with the top paragraph. There is a lot not known in this trial. Like did Rachel die in Leon county or in Jefferson county? Why did they send her with $13000 to buy gun from 2 convicts? Those convicts knew it was a setup from the get-go. How did 2 cars get away down a 2 lane road in 5 o'clock traffic with a DEA plane overhead? Why did they lose sight of Rachel. Why didn't they stop the buy when they lost sight of her? How did the cops know Deneilo parents lived in Summerbrooke?

The City Commission of Tallahassee and the parents of Rachel Hoffman settled tonight for $2.6 million dollars. The parents will be paid $200,000 in the next few days and then the legislature will write a check for $2,400,000 when the legislature meets. However, there was one sentence I did not understand in the agreement. It was if the legislature cuts the check for more than $2,400,000 the parents would not take more than the $2,400,000.

Well,#1 why would the legislature actually cut a check for more than that? And if they did, where would that money go?

Glad her family was paid for their loss from such bad police work. They would have won so much more from a jury at trial. I heard from the jury members and they were not happy. The city settled to avoid so much bad publicity for weeks and millions of dollars more in losses for a jury decision.

Yeah, Tallahassee always seems corrupt. I don't understand why they would ever cut a check higher than an amount that was settled. It must be because the city knows that the people involved in everything are clearly idiots as already shown and can't even cut a check right!

I was wishing for the trial. Although I know the parents were hanging on by a thread. This has been a very tough road for them since the day their daughter was murdered by gangsters. There were many questions the TPD needed to answer. Stand like men and answer them. But they didn't have to, and I'm sad that they didn't have to. Actually I'm angry that TPD did not have to answer. Because I feel it will happen again. We paid the price with our taxes, not TPD. But I certainly don't blame the parents for ending it. Their hearts have been torn out.
