(bernie, that dumbfounded shit is over) GO AWAY.

Pinellas County's top prosecutor said Thursday he is "dumbfounded'' at the way his office handled the case of Craig Wall, accused of fatally stabbing his girlfriend after being released on $1,000 bail in a domestic violence case.
Bernie McCabe, state attorney for Pinellas and Pasco counties, said his staff needs to be reminded of fundamental principles that were not followed in this case.
He said his chief assistant, Bruce Bartlett, plans to meet today with prosecutors who handle misdemeanor hearings.
"They are being paid to be advocates and not just stand there with their hands in their pockets,'' McCabe said.
Wall is accused of stabbing to death Laura Taft, 29, early Wednesday morning after kicking in the sliding glass door of her apartment. He was arrested hours later in Sumter County, where he was passed out in the driver's seat of a red four-door car.
Two days earlier, Wall was released from the Pinellas County Jail on a $1,000 bond in a domestic violence hearing. No one at the hearing mentioned that Wall was a suspect in the death of his 5-week-old son earlier this month, even though policed had noted that fact in the arrest affidavit. They also failed to point out that Wall had spent 14 years in prison on charges related to an armed robbery.
"I think the judge should have been made aware of these other factors,'' McCabe said Thursday in his first public comments on the case.
Taft's sister-in-law, Nicole Bredeson, 26, was more direct.
"In my opinion that is a fatal error,'' she said. "My sister's life was worth more than $1,000 dollars. I think just about anybody can see how wrong that decision was.''
The domestic violence case stems from Wall's arrest Feb. 14 on a charge that he violated an injunction Taft took out against him because, she said, she feared for her life.
On Sunday, Wall showed up at a memorial service for his 5-week-old son. Taft said he drove through the parking lot and "flipped her off.'' He was arrested and initially held without bail.
The next morning, he came to his "first appearance" hearing, where judges inquire about the case and determine if there is sufficient "probable cause" to continue holding a defendant in jail; and sometimes modify their bail amount.
McCabe and Bartlett cited three problems with how an assistant state attorney handled the case during this hearing. First, he offered to settle the case during this initial hearing without spending more time to gather more facts. Second, he failed to bring up Wall's criminal record. Third, he did not mention that Wall was considered a suspect in the death of his own child.
"What kind of stunned me about the whole thing," McCabe said, was that the prosecutor offered the plea deal to Wall. That was not the right thing to do in a first court appearance in a domestic violence-related case, McCabe said, because the hearing happens within 24 hours of an arrest, typically before a prosecutor has done much research about the case and has had a good interview with the victim.
"You want to gather all the facts" before making an offer, Bartlett said.
McCabe said a plea arrangement in a first appearance hearing would have been acceptable in a minor shoplifting case, for example, but not in a case with a potential victim of domestic violence.
The assistant stat attorney, James Flynn, suggested a deal in which Wall would have been found guilty of the charge, paid $650 and agreed to have no contact with Taft.
But Wall rejected the offer, saying to Circuit Judge George Jirotka, "No, sir, I didn't do anything wrong, sir."
Because Wall rejected the offer, the next matter was to discuss whether to set bail. He had been held overnight without bail because it was a domestic violence-related case. So next the lawyers discussed whether Wall could be released on bond.
The prosecutor, Flynn, suggested a $2,500 bond — high for a misdemeanor case. The public defender asked for a $500 bond. Jirotka set it at $1,000.
But Flynn did not mention that Wall, 34, was released from prison in September 2008 after serving 14 years for a 1993 robbery with a deadly weapon, armed burglary and grand theft auto.
The prosecutor's records included notes on this prior record, officials said, but he didn't bring them up during the hearing.
Wall's arrest affidavit also said he "was suspected of being the one responsible for the infant's death."
This was a reference to an ongoing investigation. Clearwater police say the baby was in Wall's care on Feb. 5 at a Clearwater apartment when the boy went into cardiac arrest and was taken to All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg. Craig Wall Jr. was removed from life support and died the next morning.
The prosecutor didn't bring this up either.
"I think the judge should have been made aware of these other factors," McCabe said.
McCabe said he would communicate strongly to his staff the need to address these fundamental issues in court hearings.
But he also added that, "One of the hardest things to train is common sense. To me this whole thing smacks of a lack of common sense."
Bartlett said he would remind attorneys of the need to be vigilant.
"It's our worst nightmare for something like this to happen," he said. "The judges, the prosecutors all live in fear of somebody going out and doing something like this."

I'm sure Prosecutor Flynn isn't feeling too good right now. He'll live with blood on his hands for the rest of his life. That's punishment in and of itself. I don't know what kind of prosecutor Mr. Flynn is. He made a grave error in this case. Does he deserve to be fired? I'm not so sure.

LisaH, actually assault and battery is one charge they can give you for punching someone you don't know. Most of the time if you throw a punch in a barfight, you are charged with misdemeanor assault. If you punch someone in a barfight, and you knock their teeth out or cause relatively serious bodily harm, then you are charged with felony assault and battery. It is funny because the argument against making domestic cases a felony is that if you punch a stranger, it is a misdemeanor, but if you punched your wife, it would be a felony. They argue that it should be no different. Are the two crimes different and is domestic worse?
I say, yes. Yes, it is a more serious crime to punch your wife than it is some drunk at a bar. The reason is that most barfights don't escalate to homicide at a later date. I think it should be a felony.

First of all i think if that would have been a doctor or a cop that would have been killed those people would have looked at everything from the time the killer was born untile up to date.To see what history they have but i guess since that poor baby and the young helpless mother didnt get the kind of respect she would have gotten had she been a lawyer or a cop or a doctor but since she was they didnt feel they needed to do their jobs the rite way.I feel the people that missed the important facts of his history should be fired and recieve jail time for their sorry part in not helping her and i hope they dont get the chance to ruin someone elses life.To the girls family i am so sorry for ur lose.I to know what it feels like for the state not to give a crap thats how they was when my father was killed no investigastion and they said the case was close so i hope u guys get a really great attorney and get every penny they have and make it where they cant hurt anyone else god bless you

Normally I would agree that the judge is to blame in a case like this, after all, he is the one who makes the final decision. However, this prosecutor never uttered a word about this guy's prior record. If the prosecutor is offering to dump the case and let the guy out of jail that day in exchange for $650 and his "good word" not to have contact with the victim, then what would alert the judge that a $1000 bond is inappropriate? Nothing. It is the prosecutor's job to make the Judge aware of the circumstances surrounding each case. Flynn's failure to speak up and warn the judge about this guy's prior record and the fact that he is currently under investigation for murdering his own child is just unacceptable. I hope his office finds it inexcusable. Lack of common sense is right.

This article moved me to comment (first timer). Say what you want about government, and who is guilty, made bad judgment...I gotta hand it to Bernie McCabe for putting this statement out there. You realize this leaves them WIDE OPEN for lawsuit and culpable negligence and going on record stating the wrongdoings directly of the SA's office, good for him. He found out something wrong went down and he made a public announcement. Judges can only go based on the facts presented them. McCabe did a fine job for standing up for what was right and I hope Ms. Taft's family follows through with a wrongful death suit against the State of Florida. But, not shifting of blame will bring her back, so let's just expedite Wall's sentence. Good job McCabe for speaking up.

If you choose to marry or date a burglar, thief, rapist, car thief etc who has spent time in prison, chances are he'll also disrespect you, just like he disrespected society in general. Personal responsibility and common sense cannot be taught. You either have it or you don't. Bernie, don't hang this young atty out to dry.

This whole case is unfortunate. This county has no desire to hold criminal abusers accountable, rather they want "convictions". Domestic violence cases are notoriously difficult to "win", but instead of working harder to get a conviction, these cases get little attention.
This case is so unfortunate that it resulted in death. McCabe is responsible for the actions of his department. Rather than "just stand there with his hands in his pockets" and claim "dumbfoundedness" he should RESIGN. If he doesn't, he should be REMOVED.

What should have really happened when Craig Wall was arrested for violation of a domestic violence restraining order was no bond until trial. Instead, the judge releases Craig Wall on a $1,000 bond - that's easy money, considering the fact that a bail bondsman usually requires 10% of the bond. 10% of $1,000 = $100!
Moreover, the judge should have known better before releasing Craig Wall on $1,000 bond - the judge should have known Craig's prior record. Instead, Craig Wall is released on bond.
Instead, not only one but two needless lives were lost to domestic violence. What is wrong with society anymore?

Tampa Firemen Hero Giuliani FOUR FED YEARS

Even though he'll probaby become fireman or a mortgage broker or a realtor when he gets out in about fifteen minutes ........

Read what the judge said to him:

KERIK thrown under the bus by Giuliani

Almost all of you are guilty of that.

Hiding behind dead heroes' capes to terrorize women and children.

Why not be MEN about it???

Impossible por tu cajones es muy porquito, faggots.

Filed at 12:08 p.m. ET

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) -- Former New York City police Commissioner Bernard Kerik, who was hailed as a hero alongside former Mayor Rudy Giuliani after the Sept. 11 terror attacks and nearly became chief of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, was sentenced to four years behind bars Thursday for eight felonies.

Kerik admitted in November that he lied to the White House, filed false taxes and committed other crimes.

''The fact that Mr. Kerik would use that event (9/11) for personal gain and aggrandizement is a dark place in the soul for me,'' said federal Judge Stephen Robinson.

An apologetic Kerik said before the sentence was pronounced: ''Allow me to return to my wife and two little girls as soon as possible.''

Federal guidelines indicated Kerik's sentence should be between 27 and 33 months in prison. Robinson said he went beyond the guidelines because they could not account for certain factors.

Kerik was ''the chief law enforcement law enforcement officer for the biggest and grandest city this nation has,'' Robinson said. The crimes were committed ''in the process of attempting to become a cabinet level position in the government of the United States.''

Kerik, 54, has already been ordered to pay $188,000 in restitution and to pay past-due taxes and penalties on six years of tax returns.

Just before pleading guilty, Kerik spent three weeks in the Westchester County Jail for releasing secret pretrial information. While there, he was voluntarily admitted to the psychiatric ward for observation because of stress. Doctors concluded he did not need mental care.

After admitting his crimes, Kerik was freed pending sentencing. He had to post a $1.5 million bond, wear an electronic monitor and generally stay inside his home in Franklin Lakes, N.J.

In presentencing memos to the judge, the defense and prosecution painted sharply different portraits of Kerik.

The defense spoke of his bleak upbringing, his steely leadership after the terror attacks, his remorse and the debt he has incurred to defend himself. It supplied letters of support from his son, fellow police officers, a priest and a man who lost two sons on Sept. 11.

There was no letter from Giuliani.

About Me

I was born a citizen of the world and have remained such but along with that: I'm a long time Tampa resident. Mixed bag at that as I've seen life here from nearly all angles and while somewhere in there I became slightly indoctrinated, I'm not too proud of the way people have taken over this city and run it with an iron fist for all but some. This city is working hard on creating just two classes. Thems and them dont's and they are working hard to shove some families down into the gutter for reasons known only to them. Some might be as petty as jealousy, some might be politically motivated, some might just be stupid and all are wrong. I want to believe we can get better but that would entail some stuff that I have no control over. I only can control myself and my reactions to what occurs.
