Your cousin Thaddeus raised some tough questions on his show last week regarding the police shooting of Malcolm Shaw. Many of his friends insist that Mack Shaw never had a gun. T. Matthews reported that the victim was shot in his bedroom while police were serving a search warrant.
What kind of gun was found next to Ms. Shaw?
What evidence did a search of the house find?
T. Matthews also noted that the 39-year old officer that shot Shaw, Patrick Cici, owns at least seven homes in Shelby County, including a $280,000 home in Germantown. I'd like to know how a Bartlett cop can make sevev mortgage payments on a policeman's salary?
I'm not fan of the other Matthews, but I'd like to see a real watchdog sniff around this case.

What if I buy a car from a goverment auction that had been used for dope or dui or a bank robbery..Do I get a free pass if I get caught doing one of the same crimes and kill somebody..I guess the question would be, is it the cars fault or mine..
From you guys news, it would be the cars - huh..

The DA decides the shooting of Malcolm Shaw was justified within days of the incident. What information was this decision based upon. What was the contents of the Memphis police report on the incident?
The Bartlett PD entered the home to conduct a search warrant for marijuana, paraphenalia and money? Was the search conducted. If so, what was discovered?
Friends and family of the victim maintain Malcolm Shaw did not own a gun? What kind of gun was recovered at the scene? What is that gun's history. Was it used in other crimes?
These are just some of the questions that have not been answered yet. I hope a certain Government Watchdog take a bite out of this crime,

Did anyone consider that this officer may be a highly educated person who also has investided in realestate for years. I mean if his credit is good he would have been just like thousands of other investors that tried to make a living outside his police salary. I mean there are people out there who work hard and take risks financialy. Is there any chance this officer also works two additional jobs, one being the military where he was activated, and taken from his family to defend our freedoms and safety for a year. There are hard working people out there who don't mooch of our government and work hard for well over 60 hours a week, every week of every year. I mean there is a chance that he was a hard working individual who didn't need to be shot himself that day. Right? I mean there is that chance, no?

There are any number of possible explanations as to how a police officer could come to own more than $600,000 in property. Maybe he did invest wisely, work lots of overtime, moonlight, inherit money, etc. But in view of the fact that he shot and killed a man while on duty, it's fair to question how an officer earning approximately $50,000 would be able to obtain seven mortgages in seven years.
The shooting on Standridge may have been justified. The detective's seven homes may have been legitimately earned. I'm not suggesting otherwise, but the Shaw shooting has raised many questions that need to be answered, including questions of Patrick Cici's finances.
The truth will out and the truth will make us free.

Why do people think that he owns those houses. The way I see it is that they are all financed through banks. How is it that Cici made $50k as a BPD officer? I would be willing to bet Cici has made over 100K in the last couple years. Matter of fact, I bet he has made at least 3/4 of that money from the PD. Also, 279k at 5% is only 1700 a month mortgage. Any hard working individual with 4 sources of income like military, rentals property, police work, and home repair could handle that mortgage. Fact is just his police salary alone (wich by the way is well over 50k a year) could handle his mortgage payment, car payment and any other misc. bills. All his rental income and military income is probably invested and used for other things. Where is all the question here. I have one more bet for ya. Bet he would be more than happy to let anyone see his tax returns and bank statements. Bet you anything? Just ask? He is an open book and willing to let anyone see anything at anytime. Just my opinion, but I know him very well. Your numbers as far as his income is better than 50% less than what he earns. And that is just one fact you have been way off on. All the things that I read about him are so false. But ya know, I don't really think anyone wants the truth, because it's not news. He is a good man, a gread dad, and an awsome police officer. That is fact.

The questions regarding Detective Cici' home and other properties are the least troubling questions regarding the death of Malcolm Shaw. More importantly, I hope someone can explain why Bartlett police ar conducting undercover operations in Memphis, sven miles outside their jurisdiction. If they were aware of illegal activity on Standridge Street, why didn't they just notify Memphis PD instead of sending in a SWAT team?
I am particularly disturbed ny eyewitness accounts that maintain that Barlett police exchanged "high fives' following the shooting. I am also concerned that no one apparently has questioned Standridge Street residents who witnessed the March 11 raid. Why did Bartlett police wait until they arrived on Standridge Street to notify MPD when the search warrant was botained 16 hours earlier? Why didn't Bartlett police seek a search warant from an elected judge. Why did they go before a judicial commmissioner after regular hours?
There are many questions to be answered. The detective's finances are the least important. If he's earned all those homes, he'll have no trouble proving it.
