Anatomy Of The Cover-Up Of A Cover-Up The Untold Story Of The Lubbock SWAT Killing A Series By R.G. Griffing, SAL Staff Copyright 2001 San Antonio Lightning Part One-"The First Cover-Up" "I drove to the L.P.D. and waited to right (sic) my report." These are the last words of the official report written by Lubbock SWAT Officer Tracy Taylor, after he inadvertently shot and killed his team leader, Sgt. Kevin Cox, in a confused and deadly confrontation that left one cop dead, another wounded, and an innocent citizen hit twice with police bullets. "We're gonna need more ammunition!" Taylor made this startling observation, after the SWAT team had poured 369 rounds into the suspect's house. Audio of SWAT radio communications during the attack: [url]www.sanantoniolightning.com/final1.rm[/url] L.P.D. then falsely accused the suspect, Richard Robinson, 47, of capital murder. Long time police spokesman Bill Morgan chided anyone who disagreed as slandering a fallen hero. "That is so baseless and contrary to the evidence that it's an absolute insult to Kevin Cox's memory," Morgan told local reporters. Robinson had been caught red-handed, in the act of burning a couch on his front lawn, in a family dispute. The SWAT team, heavily armed and transported in armored personnell carriers, took over. That's what led to the carnage in Lubbock that day. This all happened in July, on Friday the 13th. Taylor falsely maintained, as did other SWAT officers, that the target of their attack was the cop killer, Robinson. The lie held up for a while. Almost a week. Indeed, not only did the police convict the suspect on the spot, but the local newspaper poured on the prose as well. The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal stated categorically in the next day's lead, as fact, that: "Lubbock police Sgt. Kevin Cox died Friday after a distressed and belligerent man opened fired (sic) on him as a SWAT team moved to end an armed standoff triggered by a domestic dispute." (A.J. 7-14-2001) Turns out Robinson was unarmed. Had it not been for plucky channel 34, the Fox affiliate in Lubbock, which video taped the incident, the truth might never have come out. Link to video footage: [url]real.morriscomm.com:8080/ramgen/lubbock/cops/officerLS.rm[/url] But those tapes show conclusively that Robinson could not have killed Cox. That's when the second cover-up began. It continues to this day. Tomorrow-Part Two

From the title of this thread, I was sure you were going to tell us that you held hands with a young womenz at the schoolyard playground!, or possibly better yet that one of Franks phone sex girls didn't immediately hang up on you! [:D]

At first I thought they were using bolt action assault rifles, which would take forever to shoot 369 rds.
