Officer Bruce McKay-The New Hampshire cop killing

Postby Ancap » 26 Jun 2007, Tue 5:28 pm

FRANCONIA, N.H. -- New Hampshire authorities said yesterday that they will not press charges against a former Marine who stepped into a deadly shooting and killed a 24-year-old high school dropout who had moments earlier fatally shot a police officer.

The former Marine, Gregory W. Floyd, 49, was driving with his son along Route 116 in Franconia on Friday night when he saw Liko Kenney, 24, shoot Franconia Police Corporal Bruce McKay, 48, four times in the torso. After Kenney drove his Toyota Celica over McKay as the officer lay on the ground, Floyd grabbed the officer's service weapon and shot and killed Kenney.

Authorities said the double shooting was the bloody climax of a long-simmering feud between McKay, a 12-year-veteran of the three-member department, and Kenney, a cousin of World Cup champion skier Bode Miller.

In 2003, Kenney was convicted of assaulting McKay, authorities said. Kenney had contended that McKay had assaulted him, breaking his jaw and leaving him in a coma, according to Bode Miller's father, Woody.

"It was a bad mixture waiting to happen," said Connie McKenzie , a nurse who said she had tried to ad minister CPR to McKay on the lawn in front of her 18th-century farmhouse on Route 116. "They hated each other."

New Hampshire's attorney general, Kelly A. Ayotte, said Floyd will not face charges because he was justified in using deadly force.

"Based on the results of the investigation, our conclusion is that Gregory Floyd's actions were justified based upon dangerous circumstances confronted with and efforts to assist McKay," Ayotte said at a news conference in Concord.

Captain Russell Conte of the New Hampshire State Police condemned the slaying of McKay, a New York native who had a 9-year-old daughter, Courtney, and in June was to marry his fiancée, who has a 14-year-old daughter, Kylea.

"Something this egregious affects everyone in law enforcement, and it is the ultimate act of defiance for someone to shoot a police officer when he's doing his duties," Conte said.

The attack unfolded Friday at about 6:30 p.m. after McKay stopped Kenney for speeding on Route 116, a two-lane country road dotted with wooden barns in this rugged, picturesque town 80 miles north of Concord.

Neighbors said Kenney was driving home from his job at a market in nearby Littleton with a friend, identified by authorities as Caleb Macaulay, 21. Kenney told McKay to "get another officer," and then he sped off, according to Ayotte. McKay gave chase in his cruiser, caught Kenney about a mile and a half down the road, and stopped his car in front of Kenney's car, forcing Kenney to stop. McKay then sprayed Kenney with OC spray, an irritant similar to pepper spray, and backed away from the vehicle, Ayotte said.

I just saw the video of the shooting on Headline News and all I can say is that McKay (the cop) got exactly what he deserved.

McKay didn't "back away" from the vehicle. He walked up, immediately sprayed pepper spray with a look of disdain, smugness and contempt for Kenney, turned his back and walked away. He never attempted to take Kenney into custody and it appeared to me that it was an outright assault by the police officer.

According to the Headline News report, the Kenney family stated that Kenney lived in fear of McKay and that McKay was a bully.

Good riddance to bad rubbish (McKay). I could care less if he has a child or what not. Maybe his kid will learn from this experience. Don't abuse your authority.

The Investigatory Board of Anarcho-Capitalism has determined this to be a "Good Shoot".

He thought he was billy-badass and I believe the family is correct when they referred to him as a bully cop. Of course he's being lauded as a hero by the state.

I think the pussy marine should have minded his own fucking business and let the heroic act of self defense take place.

Officer Bruce McKay was a dumb ass and thought that his 'authority' would protect him like a shield. All stupid ass cops think that way.

Way to go Liko Kenney, you did the right thing. We don't need to stop now, we need to keep going with this.

In 10 complaints filed against him in 10 years, Franconia police Cpl. Bruce McKay was repeatedly described as hostile, arrogant and over-aggressive. All echo the grievances Liko Kenney voiced against McKay before he and McKay died in a violent police stop in May.


In one 1997 complaint, a woman said McKay terrorized her when he pulled out a knife to cut a seat belt off her as she sat handcuffed in his cruiser. In 1999, the Lisbon police chief demanded that McKay stop patrolling his town for minor motor vehicle infractions. And in 2005, another police officer investigating a McKay stop told McKay to work on his confrontational demeanor.

Franconia officials released copies of the complaints late yesterday in response to a Monitor right-to-know request. The town also released copies of McKay's police academy records (with grades redacted) and nearly 30 commendations and letters of thanks that McKay received in his 11 years with the Franconia police.

Most of those were glowing, thanking McKay for above-average service. But when one letter writer complained that McKay hadn't been celebrated enough for one high-profile police stop, the Franconia chief and another officer angrily suggested that if McKay wanted more medals he should try out for the Olympics.

Together, the complaints and the kind words leave a mixed impression.

McKay, 48, died on duty in May while trying to stop Kenney, 24 of neighboring Eason, for an expired registration. Kenney and McKay knew one another from a 2003 arrest during which both hit the other, and Kenney insisted that McKay call backup in on the registration stop.

When McKay refused, Kenney drove off. McKay followed, forced Kenney off the road and pepper-sprayed him. As McKay turned to walk away, Kenney shot him four times and ran over McKay, killing him. A passer-by then shot Kenney.

Since their deaths, there has been intense speculation among locals about the complaints in McKay's personnel file. Until yesterday, the town had been willing only to list the number of complaints against McKay.

Seven of the 10 complaints were filed in 1997. All were provided with the letter writers' names blacked out.

In one, filed in September 1997, a teacher with a degree in criminal justice wrote a lengthy letter to Franconia Chief Mark Montminy complaining that McKay had been rude and terrorized her during a intoxication stop.

The woman, who was ultimately acquitted of drunk driving, according to her letter, said McKay was impatient and rude to her during a field sobriety test. Tired of her questions about the test, McKay handcuffed the woman and put her in the cruiser, with her hands behind her.

Without explaining what he was doing, McKay then used a knife to cut the cruiser's seat belt off, near the woman's abdomen. "I was TERRORIZED," the woman wrote in her complaint to Montminy.

At the station, McKay told the woman she had waited too long to take a blood-alcohol test and therefore would automatically lose her license, her complaint said. So even after she beat the drunk driving charge, she couldn't drive.

And McKay kept tabs on her.

A few months after the first stop, McKay saw the woman's car leaving a Franconia grocery store and followed it, eventually pulling it over. The woman's 17-year-old daughter was behind the wheel, driving them for groceries. McKay approached the car and told them he needed to make sure the woman wasn't driving.

"Bruce McKay has serious power and control issues," the woman wrote.

In another 1997 complaint to the police department, a letter writer complained that McKay stopped him for going 56 mph in a 40 mph zone. But the stop was in Bethlehem, not Franconia.

The person pulled over and waited several minutes for McKay to approach his vehicle. When McKay didn't show, the person began to approach the cruiser but was told "in a very abrupt and intimidating manner to get back in my car," the complaint reads.

Nearly 20 minutes later, while refusing to give a reason for the stop, McKay gave the person a summons for speeding. The person asked Montminy that the charges be dropped and suggested McKay improve his attitude.

"If you wonder why you have such a difficult time getting your budget approved by the townspeople, then impress upon your employees the importance of treating the people who pay your salary with a lot more respect," the person wrote.

One woman complained twice in 1997.

The first time, she was upset that McKay approached her young daughter outside a downtown business and demanded identification. When the girl asked why, McKay reportedly said, "Because I asked for one." He later explained that he was looking for two local runaways who were 13 and 14.

I
t took several months for information to be made public that helps explain why the needless deaths of Franconia police officer Bruce McKay and Liko Kenney occurred. A cop and a kid known for his wild ways were killed over an unregistered vehicle.

The complaints against McKay portray a devoted police officer with a by-the-book view of the law and an aggressive personality. They suggest that McKay had a tendency to respond in ways that were likely to increase rather than decrease the potential for violence. One came from the police chief of a neighboring town acting in his official capacity.

McKay's file suggests that it was not uncommon for him to go to great lengths to help someone nor to come on harder than called for in some circumstances. To what extent he did that in encounters with Kenney can be debated. But what is clear is that needlessly aggressive behavior by a police officer is counterproductive. It can also lead to tragedy.

Cops who come on as tough guys right out of the gate teach fear of the law officer, not respect for the law. That's especially true when dealing with young people who by nature are likely to rebel against authority. That doesn't mean that every encounter has to be with "Officer Friendly," though that's more likely to help than hurt. It does mean that, as agents of the law and representatives and employees of the community, officers should be polite, respectful and firm, but only as forceful as necessary.

Aggressive cops can sour police relations with a community and foster an "us against them" atmosphere.



It can make law-abiding citizens distrust the police and reduce their willingness to help them. Overly aggressive officers who generate complaints are also more likely to face charges of unnecessary force or police brutality that can lead to costly civil suits. That costs taxpayers money and makes them less willing to increase funding for law enforcement.
Screening candidates to avoid hiring people with personalities that might make them prone to violence can help communities minimize problems, but it's no guarantee that they won't occur. An insistence on professionalism, regular training in proper procedures and deportment and a policy of taking every complaint seriously is a must.

None of this means that officers shouldn't use force, even lethal force, when necessary or that when the situation calls for it, they come down hard on criminal offenders. But knowing when it's appropriate to do so is crucial. Given the tremendous power police wield, it's the most important knowledge of all.

This advice, provided by the FBI to police departments in a law-enforcement bulletin, should be on the wall of every station house:

Hi, I'm new to this :)

Hi everyone

I'm newbie here and came to this topic on www.policecrimes.com from yahoo search engine.

I really think this topic on www.policecrimes.com is really interesting.

I'm work on loans related work and I have a blog which giving out info about loans

Now I don't have to worry about the unexpected bill getting paid. No personal questions, bad credit accepted, and the money is directly deposited into your checking account. I would suggest this service to anyone who needs quick, fast payday loans.

A no credit check loan (also called a paycheck advance) is a small, short-term loan that is intended to cover a borrower's expenses until his or her next payday. The loans are also sometimes referred to as cash advances, though that term can also refer to cash provided against a prearranged line of credit such as a credit card.

I really hope that everyone here don't need some unexpected cash, but if any emergency appears, do not hesitate to use these services!

Take care!
