you all are ignorant and you need to shut up talking about my best friend like that! you don't bother to ask what really happened. well i will tell you i was there that night that nolan was MURDERED. nolan is the one who called the police to get this drunken man out of his house. we tried to make this man leave for an hour! that man said he was going to get his gun. nolan was not "running around shooting at people". he was protecting his home. nolan did not want to hurt that man. if he did, he would have let us throw the boiling water on him. but he told me not to, saying if we threw it and he rushed at us, he would have to shoot him (and this was in his own home.)another thing, if that pig would have said FREEZE or PUT THE GUN DOWN, nolan would have listened. but gregory orrick did not announce himself. instead, he crept around the side of the building like the trigger-happy cop home from war that he is, and he SHOT TO KILL, not to stop the threat. if he actually saw what happened, he wouldn't have shot nolan. nolan ran into the house holding his neck. he said "HE SHOT ME, HE SHOT ME! CALL THE POLICE! I NEED HELP" he didn't even know the police were there. even after he was shot, he thought that man shot him and he looked to the police for help, but they didn't help him. i know there is an active cover up on nolan's murder. i don't mind to talk about it either because if i lose my life by a trigger happy cop, at least i will die knowing i gave my life for my best friend. i gave all that i could. this is not about color. this is about justice. Gregory Orick, i wish they would have murdered you in Iraq so that people living in the 5th district would really be safe. how many others are out there like you. i can't even leave my house because i am so afraid of the police and if you ever read this, you stole my future, my will to live and do good, you stole the light out of my life and you ruined my life. my friend lost his life and you got a paid vacation while he is laying there so cold. you don't deserve to be a cop. you only make the streets more dangerous for us all and i pray for anyone who has the misfortune to cross your path. i hate you. i hope you go to bed every night knowing that nolan needed your help, and you murdered him.
I have to say..& I know its been along time & noone will prob even see this now..BUT..Ms. BFF..you said Nolan called the police & then he didnt know they were there!!!..MOST parents teach their children that if they get into trouble with the "COPS" you do not put your hands in your pocket!!! Because they are trained to shoot!!!..If you dont know this & didnt then..then obviously you or your friend had not been taught whats right!!! And you ALWAYS stay on the phone with the 911 operator until the "COPS" get there!!!...Maybe you should refer to the TV show "COPS"..that will you teach you and everyone who hasnt been taught what to do when YOU call the police!!!..or maybe you werent clear to the 911 operator about what you just said on here!!!..If you had been..then the "COPS" would have known to approach the scence differantly!!!..Im sorry about your friend..I would not wish that circumstance on anyone ADULT or KID..but..I also would not want someone who was called to help me aka "COPS" to get killed either because they handled the situation differant then what they were taught!!!!..And WAKEUP...that SOLDIER went & protected YOUR life with his in IRAQ!!!!

Sharon, You are wrong. I did see your post. I still check from time to time, because Nolan is important to me. Let me ask you something. Is it hard for you to understand that it took the police at least an hour to arrive once they were called? And that if they had reacted in a timely mannor, it never would have escalated that far? I don't know where you are getting that he put his hands in his pockets. I don't know how many times I have to say that he didn't even know the police were there. I should have clarified in that post that Nolan was not the person to physically call the police. He told his neighbor to call them because no one in his house had a phone to call ourselves. I do not know what was said on the phone to the dispach. But I can tell you that the dispach here is county-wide,and in maost instances, they do not stay on the phone until so-called help arrives. And for the record, I know that Orick fought in the war to protect our freedom. I'm not negating that. But I am opposed to soliers who are prone to PTSD, being given a gun and a badge and told to protect and serve, when there is an EPEDEMIC of PTSD occurring with soldiers who specifically fought in the war on terror. Do your research mam. Do you really think it is safe to give someone a gun who is prone to flashbacks? I have PTSD fromthis incedent and as a citizen, I do not quallify to get a CCW permit because I have sought help for it. What sense does that make?

In the wake of Trayvon Martin I believe that this case deserves more attention. The PTSD theory holds a lot of weight, not to mention past violence/records. Orick doesn't have any previous "records", however his past and family are riddled with shady business.

His father, Abner, is one of Dayton's premier bottom dweller politicians that appears to have made his way back into the Republican elite this year. No doubt he pulls lots of strings, especially for his boys who are still attached to their mother's tit.

Younger brother Mark is the loser of the family, barley able to hold down a respectable job, tons of petty violations (as an adult) and working on marriage number 3 or 4. Father gives him the trophy business because that seems to be the only thing Mark was qualified to do. At 44 he decides he needs to get his life together and joins the police force with big bro. At this point (as a cop) Mark has been seen at local bars making an ass of himself and having at least one affair. Wife knows about it but won't leave him because she is that insecure (or threatened).

Greg goes to Iraq for who knows how long and sees who knows what that no human should have to tolerate and marriage number one fails. Greg's second wife left him for being a raging dickhead and soon after he kills Nolan. Almost exactly a year later, Orick tasers an innocent man standing on the sidewalk. The DPD ruled against Orick admitting that he used excessive force in that situation, only because the whole thing was on video. Orick appealed but was denied.

Both are still on the streets as far as I know, 5th district, which is the last place we need trigger happy cops.

Unfortunately I just saw that Tranter's case against Orick was denied last month. That's unfortunate. We all know that the DPD is full of corrupt bigotry and we received national attention for it a year or so ago, however, covering up something like this definitely takes the cake. The Oricks have a track record and it should have been taken into evidentiary consideration for this case.

Democracy is more at stake than ever these days and we all need to come together locally to make changes.
