When they were asked what could possibly take so long, when all the players accounted for within minutes after this incident, they fell silent, suggesting this was somehow a complex case.
Is OCSD waiting for spy satellite images of the scene, hoping something might have been caught by one of our satellites?
What happened to the elvis-lives who suggested the Maine was a nutjob, where the deputy did not know if the girls were kidnapped sex slaves, illegal aliens or escaped mental patients, who suggested the Deputy who shot the unarmed Marine to death, "Deserved a medal."
Where are these people?
Seriously? What happened to those who don’t want to comment until the investigation is over?
I suspect that we’re waiting until the investigation is complete. That’s the DA’s investigation, not the (inevitable) press release from the plaintiff’s lawyer.
And just to anticipate the objection, the notion, suggestion, or innuendo that the shooting of an active duty Marine (by another Marine, adding to the tragedy) will be “covered up”, in Orange County, California, the home of both Camp Pendleton and MCRC San Diego is absurd.
The DA will conduct his investigation, and report his findings, and either file charges or not. In the interim, we can count on the civil proceedings being tried in the press by the plaintiff, and for those who are inclined to assume the worst of LE to take the plaintiff’s lawyer’s press releases at face value, and to discount any statement from the Sheriff as obviously self-interested.
