Marvin Booker jail death: Judge asked to stop city from blocking FBI access to evidence
With that in mind, Kilmer and associates have filed a motion asking that Judge Jackson authorize the plaintiffs to disclose the information to the FBI.
Not that Kilmer is expecting miracles if the feds do get the documents. "Given the recent decision by the federal authorities to not pursue the case relating to the brutality inflicted upon Alex Landau by the Denver Police, we have reason to be skeptical that any such investigation will lead to anything, despite the compelling evidence of unconstitutional brutality inflicted upon Mr. Booker. Nevertheless, we remain willing to cooperate and hope to be pleasantly surprised if federal government officials do decide to finally draw a line regarding Denver law-enforcement brutality."
Look below to see the order, as well as a scan of a page from the Rocky Mountain News circa 1976. It features Booker speaking to the Colorado House of Representatives on Martin Luther King's birthday several years before the date was designated a national holiday. Booker's family says he was something of a King scholar who memorized MLK speeches.
By the way, Booker's trial was supposed to be underway on Martin Luther King Day, 2013.
