I read with disgust the front page article of the November 30th issue announcing the “New Trial” in the Scozzari matter. My question is when will it be enough? This unfortunate incident took place over five years ago. After it occurred it was thoroughly investigated by the Michigan State Police. There results along with the Crime Lab results were turned over to a prosecutor for review. After the review the prosecutor determined that the actions of the Police Officers was justifiable.
Then, of course, the civil attorneys got involved and the case was taken to Federal Court. After weeks of testimony in front of a Federal Judge and jury the officers were once again cleared of any wrong doing. Now it appears that some liberally appointed judge (lawyer) has decided that his legal piers (more lawyers) have not had there bank accounts adequately lined by the deep pockets of a local municipality so they have decided that there is a case to be made for the slow response time of medical attention.
This is a fishing expedition on the part of the Scozzari family attorneys at best. These officers have been cleared and should not be made to testify through another long stressful and expensive trial. This case is a shining example of what is wrong with our judicial process.
