Agreed. Isn't it amazing that these DIRTBAGS (the whole lot of them involved in the cover up) actually thought they'd get away with ALL OF THIS ILLEGAL CONSPIRACY! FOOLS!

Ok, a post went to ABC I TEAM letting them know about those of us who plan on being on the courthouse steps in a rally to let our voices be heard on this case of total mismanagement by our District Attorney, his office and our law enforcement officials. Call it what you would like I prefer Mismanagement vs Cover-up until the whole truth is uncovered. One thing I think we all agree on is there seems to be a corrupt group of officials representing us who we would rather see somewhere else! Remember June 12th I know you all have opinions and write them well, so lets see how many of you are real and how many of you just like the lip action!

The date and time error on the blood test is discussed in length on the DOJ report where they reviewed the entire case. There were also errors made on weber and dinius' blood documentation drawn at Sutter. Nobody is questioning that. There are other documents,(hospital admission and discharge records), that can prove the time that Perdock arrived and departed from Redbud Hospital.
It was reported by the witness, Zinna Dotti, who made the accusation about Perdock being on scene past midnight, that she was actually not on scene then either. By her cell phone records she could tell that she already was at Richmond Park and calling family before the time she originally stated. She recanted her statement at the preliminary hearing, under oath. Read the transcript. Oh, that's right, Haltom doesn't send copies out to everyone, only to dan noyes, so he can glean only what he wants to report that is negative for the DA, Perdock or LCSO, and ignore the rest.
Whether you believe this or not, it is the truth. I was in the courtroom for her testimony.
The two witnesses were interviewed. And while hindsight, I'm sure, says there statements should have been taken initially, they did not see the collision. You cannot be a witness to a crash you did not see.
As far as Flynn's follow up, I really can't comment, because I don't know the extent of who and when he interviewed people.
The fact that Perdock called central dispatch instead of 911 has been addressed and he absolutely did the right thing. In fact all of us should program that number into our cell phones. If you call 911 from your cell, you will get dispatch in Ukiah and they will then have to transfer your call to Lake County. Perdock saved valuable time by doing what he did, and central dispatch is also a recorded line as everyone who heard dan's playing of it on abc7 knows. As far as the tapes being lost, that is on the DA, but I would be willing to bet, there are several copies elsewhere.(Ask noyes for it.)
No one on scene was breathalyzed. Need I say more. The conspiracy theory might hold water if dinius and weber had been breathalyzed and Perdock wasn't. But NO ONE on scene was breathalyzed.
Again, hindsight, but I bet Perdock wishes now that they did give him a breathalyzer test that night before transporting him to the hospital for the blood test.
Now I know you will come back and say that it isn't proof just because I said it, but I am hoping that you might do your own research to prove it yourself.

Thats your opinion, "in hindsight" quit giving excuses. The sailboat was SLAMMED into and Lynn was killed.
"in hindsight" that 2 witnesses who call to report an accident yet the sheriffs don't bother with taking statements. Can't believe it.
When an officer is involved in an accident an outside agency is called in to do the investigation as to eliminate any conspiracy theories. Makes sense doesn't it? But the LCSO chose not to call in an outside agency and did the investigation themselves (inhouse, under-sheriffs investigated their own supervisor)

"hindsight" I'll bet Officer Beland is sorry he didn't get the results before the order not to came down.
"Hindsight" we all wished an outside agency would have been called in because Dinius wouldn't be on trial it would be Perdock. Thats the difference.

Give it up repeat. I address your comments,(the same ones over and over and over, hence your name apparently), and you just go back and state the same thing again. I'll ask again, who would you suggest could have done the investigation that night? No other law enforcement entity in Lake County was trained at that time, and my understanding is that there still isn't anyone, trained in Marine Investigation here. You fail to mention, again, the involvement of the Sacramento County Sheriff's office and the California State Department of Justice.
The witnesses, are now a mute point, as they were interviewed. And as I have said before, the fact that they saw the lights when the sailboat left the dock is not significant, as they did not see the collision. You cannot be a witness to a collision you did not see.
And as I said, I am sure Perdock wishes everyone on scene was breathalyzed and then taken to the hospital for BA tests. Perdock's would have been 0.00% still and by haltom's own method of calculation, dinius would have been approximately .18% and weber would have been approximately .24%. Why is it such a big deal that Perdock wasn't breathalyzed when neither was dinius or weber??
And even though Perdock wasn't drinking, lets just use haltom's theory that he was and calculate his BA by haltom's method. The MOST Perdock could have been was .06%

Absolutely! Perdo should be on trial, but the local GOB did "it" their way. Obstruction of justice from the get go!

That is your opinion
Who could have done an investigation? Well, standard procedure is to call in an outside agency when an officer is involved whether on duty or off duty. The accident was around Fraser Point so you have a choice of Napa or Sonoma Counties. Both counties are trained and experienced in Marine Investigations.
The CHP or PD agencies could have provided statements, PAS test, transport for testing and information to marine investigators when they arrived on site.
Since the boats were left unsecured by the LCSO for 9 hours or more why wasn't another agency called?
What have I failed to mention about the DOJ or Sacramento Sheriff Investigator? We have been over and over that. DOJ claims lights could not be determine if they were on or off at time of crash. The Sacramento Investigator Slabaugh said, all he did was read what Rod Mitchell provided and he wasn't allowed to interview anyone. He testified, he took direction from the LCSO, Commander.
We also know that Dinius's expert states the lights were on along with witnesses who state they saw the lights.

To Justice, I agree with you along with preferential treatment/obstruction

Have I ever thanked you for bumping all these old threads so they can be deleted, one by one.

If, by some chance, enough voters are fooled into electing Rivero, it will create such a drastic reduction in services that we'll be lucky to get through a single term without a huge increase in crime. My prediction.
