KingCast Citibank Vikram Pandit cam part II: Don't feel sorry for this guy.

Pictured: Citi CEO Vikram Pandit, seated with other fat cats, Citi/Morgan Lewis lawyer Sam Shaulson and one of his reports:
Apart from taking home $1 million, which he obviously does not deserve, the only other noteworthy things Vikram Pandit did in 2008 was to fire 73,000 employees and the $50 million jet fiasco. Vikram Pandit seems to have done little else of significance so far.

This morning, Vikram Pandit also declared before Congress that he’d take a salary of $1 with no bonus until the company gets back into the black.

But do not shed any tears for Vikram because he joined Citi in April 2007 after selling his hedge fund Old Lane to Citi for over $800 million. After seeing mediocre returns from Old Lane, Citi shut down the fund in June 2008.

Here's my post on Vikrom Pandit and Citibank, the dirtiest money-laundering, student-deceiving, sweeps-account stealing, racial joke-telling scum-sucking rat pigs I have ever seen.

Back to trial; I look forward to putting the Citibank case on video too, they are stupid corporate ho-bags, toxic to the touch:

KingCast raw video presents: Dan Talbot murder trial 22 Jan. 2010 -- Jagerbombs and niggerbombs!

Another crazy case: Big racist white men with history of violence attack a black boy with bottles and Ronnie Barlow shoots a bully named Robert Lockwood. Self-defense did not work in that case but Barlow had a poor (read: virtually nonexistent) defense.

PREQUEL: Sergeant Evan Franklin was hammered and ran from a Bad Scene, once again.

NOTE: The Jagermeister testimony is coming later tonight. You should see the look on Officer Brazzese's face when she looks at the Margarita's check and it's like $130 for a handful of people. What irritates me is that I think 8 Jagermeister shots were ordered but nobody seems to remember doing any except her and Sergeant Franklin I believe admitted he did at least one. C'mon guys if you want the Jury to convict you have to start being honest because otherwise you're just wasting taxpayer monies. Plus you should be honest anyway, right.

Judge Brady listened intently as former LE and current Homeland Security contractor Joshua Buxbaum described the only clear word that he heard from his window at 1:30 am 29 September 2007 out behind the Revere High School where Dan Talbot lay dying:

"The word nigger was used."
Meanwhile Officer Stacy Brazzese admitted she and others were knocking back the Jagermeisters, in addition to whatever else everybody had that fateful night.
"Your group (of 5-6 I believe) ordered 29 different drinks at Margaritas"
said Attorney Krupp.

"And you never identified yourself or anyone else as a police officer, did you."

Lovely. So not only were they acting like thugs, they were making racist thug statements. As a former AAG I am saddened by the Death of Officer Talbot, but I'm bloody well pissed as well and I have every right to be. So does every American, with this type of activity and racism. Citibank is most definitely racist, but I didn't expect this out of other LE. Vids coming tonight and tomorrow.

After lunch the State called in Statey Brian J. Canavin to testify about class and individual microscopic traits that the state contends conclusively show that the two 9MM casings found furthest away from the bleachers were in fact from the Hi-Point model that was reassembled from the sewer. He identified reamer chatter, and the unique handmade nature of a Hi-Point that yields certain definitive characteristics of a Hi-Point 9MM including 9 lands and grooves with a left twist in the barrel and he claimed the bullet fragment (almost but not quite visible in Prosecutor Zabin's outstretched gloved hand to the jury) was reflective of such a barrel.

I will be uploading video where he notes that he was unable to reach any degree of certainty regarding the individual characteristics of the bullet fragment that caused the fatal wound to Officer Talbot. He could only say that the size/weight/mass were consistent with ammunition that could be fired from the Hi-Point. Also, he could not establish the approach angle of the bullet hole in Officer Soto's bumpah' (see the blue rod) because of too many variables including the flat tire, possible deflection of the projectile on entry, etc. etc. so they can't tell if Officer Talbot or Soto fired that .40 cal round.

He was a solid and quite likable witness and I told the State that at the close of testimony. Now it is up to Attorney Krupp to refute that science when testimony resumes on Monday. At this point it appears that the State is almost 1/3 of the way home:

The fatal bullet might be linked to the Hi-Point. Assuming arguendo that the Jury buys that, there is the rest of the journey: Second, the Hi-Point has to be in Robert Iacoviello's hands and third, he must possess the specific more accurately, requisite intent to commit murder. That's going to be quite the Journey; to prepare for the ride I'll pack lots of sushi in a cooler with some of grandma's pimento sandwiches!

PS: It's all about my parents and Mother Ann, to whom my life's work is dedicated. Gosh I can't believe how young I looked at my '93 law school graduation, LOL. The ravages of time, and of fighting The Man will take it out on you!!! Anyway thank you, love you, love you thank you for letting me have the Audacity of Hope to believe I could craft my own World, and that is happening right now in more ways than this. No further comment -- loose lips sink ships.

Hey Sam Shaulson and Citibank -- KingCast professionalism results in history being made: First blogger to video a murder trial.

KingCast_slams_Morgan_Lewis_Partner_Sam_Shaulson_on_professionalism I was professional before and I'm still professional now, dude. You get the level of professionalism from me that you have earned because of your lies and lack of professionalism ab initio.

-The KingCaster.

Hey Sam Shaulson and Citibank, so much for your allegations of unprofessionalism: I'm the first Boston blogger to roll video at a murder trial, dude.

Note: As I was not able to run video yesterday, I have provided this video -- from another successful First Amendment Defense in State v. Doyle for explanation of what I'm all about: Zealously defending the First Amendment within the confines of an often overly-restrictive American Police State. I say this as a former AAG, I know of what I speak and I speak to it rather well, make no apologies whatsoever. KingCast: 21st Century Civil Rights.

Anyway, the winning Motion is set forth at bottom. Here's how the direct went, stay tuned for how the cross went later this evening. Hint: It wasn't too good for the State.

Also, State's witness Randy Fortado, a multiple felon who could have been sentenced to a total of more than 30 years for repeated drug dealings (heroin and cocaine) told a series of stories that directly channeled the writings of the Boston Herald, a newspaper that he admitted he "read every day." He claimed that Defendant Iacoviello, a man whom he'd never met, confessed that he shot Officer Talbot within 3 days of meeting him in the Big House. Of course he also said that the same Defendant told him he went behind the school to have a smoke, and that he was at the scene and then left and went home to get a gun and returned, which of course we all know did not happen.

His testimony was best summed up when he volunteered the obvious to Attorney Krupp:
"Are you inferring that I read the paper and made up a story?"

"That is exactly what I am inferring," said Krupp -- amidst laughter from the entire courtroom, except from the prosecutors. This guy was a complete tool and beyond rehabilitation, thus no redirect or anything, exit stage left.
William Soto and Officer Talbot grew up together – 5 houses apart – and they were army buddies who arranged their leaves together. He lost his best friend on 29 September, 2007. “I’ve known him since 6th grade,” said Soto.

Soto admitted it was that familiarity that led them to the bleachers on that fateful night of September 29, 2007.

“It was my idea,” he said. “Was it a place you used to hang out as kids?" asked Prosecutor Edward Krippendorf. “It was familiar,” said Soto, who said he drank no more than 6 beers at Margarita’s before heading across the street to the school yard, where he and Evan Franklin (since fired) and Officer Talbot each took 2 singles from the cooler and moved to the bleachers. A bit later, “30-40 minutes” all hell broke loose.

“First thing I heard was a Bloods MF Blood BK.” “He had a scruffy face with a fumanchu and shaggy hair…. Officer Talbot mentioned Blood Killer to him and he kept on walking, down the path, slow, with a gangster lean….toward the American Legion Highway.”
When he returned, Soto claimed that he was waiving his hands and “baited us toward him” indicating that he trailed Officer Talbot by about 6-8 feet as “Connie was pleading with him to stay.”

“Three short men wearing hooded sweatshirts came from behind the fence and fired at us....."

Officer Soto testified further that Officer Talbot had his gun out "after the flash" (of a shot). Was it the first time you saw him with his gun out? Yes.....Shots rang out, I fired back and Dan fell to the ground. I was firing down range.. I fired 2-3 times and took cover -- the nearest cover was the [trash] barrel.


"Your score at the range was significantly lower than the score of everybody else who went to the range that night wasn't it?" (Hard to tell here but I heard the numbers 26/50 as passing and I believe Soto was 17/50 but I'll need to check this). He asked about Jagermeister intake and whether anyone in the group ordered shots. The bill for the five was upwards of $130 with a few appetizers. There was a check for $29.40 + tip, which covered 3 corona lights, 3 Dos Equis and 1 Heineken at 9:06p. It was unclear to this observer who consumed those particular beverages. Contrary to direct testimony that they left at midnight, Soto had told the Grand Jury that the group left later..... "We do detail there and they are pretty strict, they close at 1:00 so we decided to leave a little before 1:00," quoted Krupp.

"It was late."
"Although it was late you weren't done drinking that night were you?"
"Any idea how those beer bottles get out onto the grass from your truck?"
"I have no idea."

Krupp speculated as to whether since-fired Sergeant Evan Franklin might have had another weapon with him after he secured his Glock 22 .40 Cal (all Revere Offcers carry the same gun) in Soto's truck. I have no idea whether or not he did, and for all I now Krupp has no clue either but it's a Good Question to ask.

"Did you have any pills that night?"
"Are you aware an empty bottle of hydrocodone was found in your truck?"
"It was an old prescription."

"On October first you were asked if the guy in red (Derek Lodie) said anything to you and you said no."
"You didn't mention anything about BK or killer or anything?"
"You heard somebody in your group say "he walks like a gangster, but you testified very differently in your direct examination didn't you?"
"So you took the bait?"
"Your intention was to find out who the person was, call in a unit and get him out of there, right?"
"But at no time did [any of you] say "we're a bunch of cops, move it along, kid."

"Your firearm was not obscured, and so somebody could have seen it? (I would have objected, totally. How does the witness know what somebody from the bushes could have een. Hell, it was dark out and the question was kind of vague, to boot).

"Today you said the kid with the red shirt was "in a line with the others" but on October 1, 2007 you told police the kid with the red shirt fired from the vicinity of the pole."
"After the first shot Talbot was still standing and you began to run for cover?"
"At the Grand Jury in 2007 you had it reversed. Do you recall saying first you took cover and then you started firing"
"No I do not."
"You took cover after you saw the muzzle flash."
"Yes I did."
"In 2007 you stated "The one that did the damage had a red shirt and black pants.... At no time did you say the shot came from the other three."
"Sir, I gave my best description."
"And your best description was that..."

Dear Senator Brown and Howie Carr: Please investigate Martha Coakley's Division of Banks railroading of Cat Gibbons. Now.

Dear Senator Brown:

We have mutual friends, some of whom helped you get elected. Their identities will remain between you and me, but you run my name past your people and you will see what I mean. I stopped short of endorsing you for Senator because I don't know you well enough. Here is the Cat Gibbons-Miracle Mortgage case for you to review, there is litigation at the MCAD and before the DOB. I managed a Title Insurance Company and closed +200 loans so I feel qualified to comment on this matter.

Martha Coakley and her promises and (in)actions I knew well enough to say "No."

I will not tolerate people coming to TOUCH FM at the last minute to look for black votes when they are in trouble. As a seasoned Civil Rights professional with top ranking from Masters in Criminal Justice Website, I can promise you that this issue will not go away until someone like you does the Right Thing. Now is your time to shine.

Peace and Good Luck in your new position as a Civil Rights leader -- the day after Martin Luther King Day -- to fill the shoes of Senator Ted Kennedy. I respect the fact that you did not grandstand during MLK day, and I will respect you more when you take action on this pending case.

KingCast says "Hey Sam Shaulson, contrary to your implications, I know my way around a courtroom, dude."

Bada-Bing! For starters, Michael Isreal and Jerry Doyle.

I have been privileged in my legal career to successfully represent clients who faced unique first Amendment Challenges, and I have boxes of old video to share about it. In Michael Isreal's case I shared with the Jury the Civic Award-winning garden at his mother's house that was an alleged "high crime area" and in Jerry Doyle's trespassing case Officer Johnson knew I had defeated the State's case as soon as I made her admit that Jerry Doyle was not the only person in the building.

You've seen some shorter clips at, but there is much more where that came from.

PS: In point of fact, my blog was rated #1 by the Masters in Criminal Justice website in its review of the Top 50 Constitutional Law Blogs. Want a picture? It lasts longer my friend. Straight to MCAD with this one.

Citibank finally releases Boston bank video showing Morgan Lewis partner Sam Shaulson to be a lying rat.

Funny, I called it months ago and most recently on 27 December 2009 when I told Morgan Lewis Partner Sam Shaulson to quit being so niggardly with the production of the Citibank video.

The salient points are these:

They did not show the part of the videos where JRT and I are sitting together in the lobby, just chilling out, waiting for Derrick.

Significantly, at no point in time do Carlo Caramanna and his co-worker appear concerned about any threat of physical violence whatsoever.
JRT walks out, I'm right behind her, and I tell Carlo what he is without breaking stride, and Mr. Gillenwater breaks stride for about 10-15 seconds to tell him to watch his back because we were going to sue them, and he too, walks out without incident. Mr. Gillenwater and I spoke about this the other day and he's definitely coming forward. At any rate, Carlo Caramanna and his co-worker casually lock the door and saunter back inside, at which point they made the bogus call to 911 to cover their tracks and try to make us out to be threatening.

That my friends, is why they don't want the video circulating.

The Affidavit as to specific facts I will post after I make some dinner (ginger sea scallops, baby bok choy, auricularia, pan-fried spicy noodles and, ummmmm..... eggplant -- how appropriate!).
