Sunday afternoon—less than a day after the killing—Blakley was released on bond. The day after that, less than two days after admittedly shooting his wife to death, authorities declared that the deputy will NOT be charged with first or second-degree murder, but “involuntary manslaughter.”

The following facts are undisputed:

1)When Blakley exited his house, blood on his hands, he admitted to shooting his wife.
2) The coroner ruled that she died from a bullet wound to the head.
3) She was found dead in her bathtub.
4) Also found in the bathroom, on the floor, were a broken wedding ring, an M4 rifle, and a spent shell casing.

In less than two days, the decision was made not to charge the confessed killer with murder.


Blue Privilege? Cop Admits to Shooting Wife in the Head, Released From Jail In Less Than 24 Hours

So, he "accidentally" shot his wife in the head, in the bathroom while she was in the bathtub, with a rifle and the shell casing was in the bathroom..... right. I don't know about you but I usually don't take a rifle into the bathroom let alone while my wife is in the bathtub. The article mentions that the most he can get is 5 years because of the lowered charge of involuntary manslaughter.

If you or I had this "accident", do you really think this would happen?

Oh, Broken wedding ring... nothing strange there at all

Ahhhh... the old Pistorius plea...




Let's be honest, this is not to be unexpected.



I mean, it sounds like she resisted and ran, what's a pi... Police man to do.

Since that is VERY suspicious, I googled it and found this:


When the responding officers entered the house, another deputy, Matthew Murphy, who also had blood on his hands, told them the victim was in the bathroom with a gunshot wound to her head and that she was dead, the report said.

Murphy told police he had tried to save her with chest compressions, according to the report. Abdullah said Murphy had witnessed the shooting. Murphy has not been charged in the case.


So, another deputy witnessed it?? Keyword WITNESS: was he there in the bathroom with the deputy and his wife? If so, WHY? What kind of strangeness is that?

I'm VERY curious to hear more details in this because something is fishy as hell, especially since another was there and apparently WITNESSED it. Something is not right with this situation.

Oh that is good. So another cop was in the bathroom with this guy and his wife?

OK...

I would highly scrutinize this other cops "eyewitness statement". I missed that blurb.

Yeah, the only thing I can think of that makes sense if it WASN'T truly intentional, is maybe he and his cop buddy were screwing around (he IS quite young), and maybe they were like, "hey, let's play a joke on my wife and scare the hell out of her while she's in the tub," which then went horribly wrong. Or maybe that's their story?

Something very wrong with this.

Yeah, the "broken wedding ring" kind of seals the deal on the story.....

This is the first time I heard the term Blue Privilege but I agree - anyone else would be in jail, no bail, and likely splashed across the media being that they look like they might have been white middle class. Where are all the gun control freaks on this one?

Clearly the police, judges, & prosecutors, protect their own and operate above the law. The rest of us would be rotting in jail not affording bail (and rightfully so!)

Jeez, i had no idea the cops would just take your word regarding the circumstances surrounding you blowing someone's head off. Thats not how it works on Forensic Files.

I don't know if you've ever had any run-ins with cops, but it's not all that unusual for cops to materialize at the scene after the fact to provide eye-witness testimony.

Who else's word would they take? A cop's testimony trumps video recordings. If one's not enough, then retcon a few buddies to the scene, like you're seeing here.

As far as I am aware, this is how a homicide is supposed to be dealt with.

The call comes in. Officers are despatched to the scene to assess the situation, establish a perimeter around the entire crime scene (all homicides are supposed to be treated as criminal acts until a crime scene analysis has been performed, and results gleaned which say otherwise), and ensure that all suspect parties, witnesses, and persons in need of post trauma counselling remain in the area. In the case of suspects, they are supposed to be under lock and key from the get go, until they appear in court charged with an offence, or are released pending further investigation.

While the officers establish a perimeter around the scene of appropriate size, based on witness reports and the sort of crime in question, forensic investigators of one sort or another, are sent to the scene to examine any evidence left behind after the events which lead to their being called out. This could be hair, skin cells or epithelial material as it is also known, blood, spit, even sweat and skin oil, left in fingerprints. They also have to examine the suspect to see what evidence is present on them, and to establish how the spread of that evidence across their bodies came to be.

For example, gun shot residue on the body is not always an indicator that an individual has sighted a weapon on someone, and blown them away. In the event of a gun cleaning accident, the gunshot residue pattern would be very different from the one which would result from a standard firing position being adopted. One would expect, in the case of a rifle, shouldered and fired, that GSR would be most likely to land in the crook of the shooters support arm. In some kind of cleaning accident however, the pattern would likely encompass the chest, gut, and or lap, depending if the cleaning was being done at a bench, or across ones legs, God forbid.

Now, all of that being said about the way GSR spreads out, it is vital that evidence is collected as whole and as quickly as possible, in order that decent conclusions can be drawn from that evidence. The more time an individual is walking around in the clothes that they wore when a homicide was committed, whether that be a murder, a manslaughter, or what have you, the greater the possibility of transfer either onto the suspect, or from the suspect to other objects and people. The chance that evidence will be removed from the suspect by some means, is also greater, the longer they are walking around. So their clothing and hands have to be examined for any trace evidence that might indicate the nature of the event in question, as soon as possible.

However, analysis of the data collected can be a laborious process, and takes time. While evidence is being examined in the laboratory, autopsy data collected and gone over by the coroner, and witness statements gone over by detectives, the suspect, if apprehended already, will usually either be in lockup until they appear before a judge, or be bailed.

The sheer speed at which this fellow appears to have been through this process is absolutely uncanny. In television shows, crime scene analysis seems to be completed in mere moments, but it is an incredibly detailed, and vexatiously slow process more often than not, and so, for that matter, is anything requiring the presence of both judges, and lawyers. Whether the former officer has received preferential treatment in terms of the crime with which has been charged is something that I cannot comment on, because I have not seen the evidence for myself. None of us have, so the best any of us can do on that score is to speculate, to varying degrees of worthiness, depending on our individual intelligence and knowledge base.

However, it certainly seems that if any decent analysis was performed, that it has been done in RECORD time, and that the legal process which would be involved has been nothing short of augmented with a God damned Warp Drive. Unless judge James Tiberius Kirk was presiding, I definitely smell a rat there somewhere, because to be walking the streets less than a day after emptying ones spouses brain pan speaks to VAST levels of cronyism somewhere in the chain of events!

They handle all the evidence. Case closed.

What is easier than one LEO getting away with murder? Two LEOS getting away with murder. What's easier than that? A group of three LEO's. See where I'm going with this?

When it involves an average citizens, yes. This is slightly different. So, he materialized after the shooting/call comes in to provide a false statement to get his friend off the hook from murdering his freakin' wife, regardless of of whether it was intentional or not? Why? Are they that close of friends? This isn't some shakedown where the guys kills someone on the street, or a drug bust, or anything. It's his wife. Cops are notorious liars, but something isn't right.

Doesn't make sense.

Because cop.

There is a metric # ton of spousal and child abuse by cops, and cops are the first to cover for their cop buddies who are beating the old lady.

This is just a bit more of a beating than usual. Maybe she made the wrong sort of pie, or didn't starch his undies. That leads to not Being In Control Of The Situation, which has to be met with whatever level of force is necessary.

I agree entirely with all you say, all your stuff is worthy contribution to this site

But the one thing that bothers me above all else...the story says he has been fired, so WTF did they fire him for?

Perhaps because the fellow proved that all his weapon safety training has been for nought and that to be on patrol with this guy represents a risk to officer safety? Essentially, the guy proved that he cannot safely handle a weapon by *accidentally* offing his wife. I think that would pretty well disqualify him from continuing in a role which is just as much about being handed a gun and told to uphold justice with it, as it is about knowing where the local gangs hang out, and which local faces are most likely to have been involved in the latest string of purse snatchings.

They know he killed her. Getting him off the hook for it is sort of like a gold watch, but they're unwilling to have the jackass work there anymore.

So he'll go down the road to the next town and resume his old behavior. Because they're not going to convict him for anything that would prevent him continuing to be a LEO.
