WB and hey guys I can't see the name of the caller on line one I know this might shock you but the name dropped off. Tom on the west side of buffalo on WB -- to what we're doing good bad ugly in funny stories of your experiences with the legal system. Real bad and normally the I'm sorry go ahead. My recognized market didn't -- your ID. When he can't at all. He most certainly did not we had a very five exchange he's a fine young man. Okay my -- Obama. I've witnessed I didn't really witness. But there was a shooting a few doors away from me. Now live and Lloyd. Do we know it's what Bennett two week period. I heard gunshots. -- one time I was wideout -- and I walked out a lot and I -- -- cure. And I called 911 and I told him what happened and they became more aware. And -- not forget that guy got banged up. He idiotic shot -- charm then. So now I call 911. I've heard oral assault for a minute pilot -- it took awhile for the cops and paramedics to get error. But one man show drop. No it isn't over until nobody don't worry about it to allow them anonymous caller you know automated. If you think you're an anonymous caller one you call 911. You. Not a now I'm -- here avoided or we're gone back to make -- a subpoena me. To go to court and testify against somebody but I don't even know you lose guys and did it. Because amplifiers -- care -- are you gonna -- Somebody asked -- -- -- here I couldn't identify somebody after five or six minutes the way I don't memorize faces. Yet while and it but it you know -- -- and our whole -- I mean that's what they do I thought I'd call them up by our anonymous phone call. And now we're coming after me and told me I got a -- Just our curiosity why did you believe it was anonymous how did you call them. 911. And why did you think that was anonymous. All there is it on aid like your cell phone is in one you both subscribe to monthly and all. Well all of them my name. Yet they can't -- what an anonymous. And that's exactly -- other problem from. Well that are coming after you they're looking for evidence to put somebody -- behind bars but if you can't identify the guys the -- your values as a witness. Yeah availability do without me I mean they got a mind -- the more it's always wanted to do was solve what I told mom argun 911 call. -- Well there I'm sure they had a perfectly good reason -- did you explain to them that there after six years you could not in good conscience testify against somebody. Yeah I told my I could not I would heavily identified a guy. I always have a bite from imply army it they don't know why I could say that was the guys because after all that time. He -- change diet my perception might it change. You know I think it takes somebody with a strong constitution to be able to say that because sometimes if but you're having pressure put on you to testify to help taken alleged bad guys off the street. You know suddenly -- memories come back that never really happened because the natural inclination is people wanna help the cops get bad guys up the street. I am I watch general Pete Williams direct. I'd forgive my ignorance what a shadow people. It's a story about you. -- out of -- people under the shadow people they come to you when you're nightmarish. And you'll die and yours truly. So old what you're saying is his -- the IRS. -- Yeah. Tom looked up on alleged call them sorority you're -- what -- the habit if you can't help you can help right. -- Who are guys that I'll talk more items that buys -- -- total authority on Wednesday. -- well that would be idea again that to me that's that's the most relevant evidence because that was taken at the time you actually sought as opposed to six years later. They. -- Well again good call and what was the eventual disposition. Did you ever go to court did you not go to court what happened. -- -- -- -- -- It's flapping in the wind on that case you might have a judgeship waiting for -- Sir that's a joke from 25 years ago and in very bad taste thank you very much and -- cult. I shall thank you very much. Yeah I'm sorry I gonna let Mexico -- Olympic one bad decision does not a lifetime. -- and so here is Laurie in buffalo WB I'm Laurie thank you for holding high. And I. I'm not very good at talking. Especially -- -- your mind it. Am I ever got to stuttering issues that nobody ever seems to notice except myself but relax you're among friends. K I'll go back a long time ago and that might that might not matter that gave the world. So calm I was great and I now and then. What happened was. In -- is put me in their car. Around the projects. You. Parade me around with my mother in the -- see me -- what should act active in the front seat. And around effort happened. You know I was very sensitive -- and I was more worried about everything else. Going down so I thought that was just a bad judgment call. How else would you have expected them to identify a suspect without your help -- and I mean you were the eyewitness. Ma'am I did not -- Richardson. Every holiday inside their house says limited factors hurled around alibis both sites and that's -- anybody. But. It was one of the things that I at a lawyers. Just ludicrous to take. I young person. And their mother. Around a project. Where on. I was just great dad and -- Channel like parading me around. Does. Show evidence that I was there. Well I. Understand why they were doing it did they take you to the hospital at all I was or any reason to take the -- right away. Yes that was. -- -- All are aware after after an agent. That mean I just I can't get over their arm or. Arm. Whatever. Well I mean I guess what you're saying is they might have been more sensitive to you having gone through the trauma of rape I cannot imagine what you endured. They made their perspective is once you went to the hospital and they did the rape kit together evidence and to give you good medicine they had to give you. -- they wanted your help in identifying the perpetrators because the -- witnessed the person who's the victim would be the single best person. Two two identified to the guy ever get caught. -- So they've got his DNA right. Not long time ago as I say you don't need these things that's changed an -- perspective is checked and has changed. A little bit. So look at. You know I I don't let that fear for my life or my family life or anybody else. My -- I'm so sorry I cannot you know what -- I cannot even begin to imagine the trauma you experienced. And I do know that beat this I mean you know you've seen special victims unit I'm sure on TV I don't know if you can stand to watch that because it deals in situations like there's. But there -- there is a greater sensitivity now than ever before were victims of bi sexual assault. Unfortunately. It sounds like you. Your situation happened before that new era came along and has been a tremendous. Improvement I think in law enforcement sensitivity toward the trauma. Rape victims undergo and I I wish I could do something to wave a magic wand and take that away from -- On but it sounds frankly like you've done a pretty good job of it yourself in terms of you know building your life. Why can't. Not that it can't and I just. Thought about calling it war. Eight and the easier sell and this is bothered me and it said that so that I will look into the complex it Collins. I'm glad I'm glad you called him and I wish I kid you know again I I wish I can give you a better explanation. And as insensitive as it probably sounds and maybe it is you would have been the single best way to -- that guy get him off the street. You know they they in their judgment at the time you might have been. Did they might got to realize how deeply and Shockey were they might have thought that you feel OK to go on the tour. I know I know I'd I'm just I'm just -- it's changed a lot over the past thirty years. -- -- I love you dearly sorry went through that. Now while you. Are -- thank you. That's that's that's. That's tough I mean it's doing it to somebody's just it's. -- -- -- -- It is 548 news radio 930 WB EM 803 no I mean the rate -- of the police methods at the time. Word. That's what they did now they gather up the DNA they probably get a match. It is 548 news radio 930 WB EM hourly with you good bad and ugly stories of the well frankly -- courtroom -- justice experiences maybe assert that a jury may be tried to get a jury duty maybe you were victims were not happy with you were treated. Maybe you know somebody was guilty they got off. Maybe it was your divorce it and get the see the kids as much as you wanted. We've all got a gripe I suppose and I'm just the man to take in the complaint desk is open. Good bad ugly in May be funny stories. -- close encounters with the justice system would be legal system. 8030930. Start 93180616. WBE. Well I feel like today you're gonna love tomorrow and Wednesday because essentially it will be the same forecasters -- with a different date on the calendar tomorrow's -- should be AD and then Wednesday well 67 degrees so. Now I -- not twins but close enough. At least first cousins. Are right now 71 degrees news radio 930 WB the end he said twins and first cousins and he didn't say anything dirty. All right it is hourly with you on the radio Monday. We are asking you at this point the shell. About your basically you're close encounters with the justice system and whether they were good bad ugly or even downright funny. Maybe it's or somebody the small claims court maybe you had a personal injury. Origin due to personal injury unity listening to the show when your own island. Or your own state down and Yemeni. Who knows but traditionalists and on line at WB -- dot com and as a web -- and we stream live still haven't gotten used to say that without sparking. 8030930. Is the phone numbers start at thirty on the cellphone. And 180616. WB the end. So whether you have a a a fun story -- not so fun story we would like to hear from a -- We've got some good ones so far including up by the way. Jury -- I can just focus on jury duty for just a moment. Because. And I realize this is kind of a crapshoot. Because statistically I would expect only a small minority. Of my audience. That would mean you guys a small minority to have served outage or. Because they're only so many people that are called. Of those people that are called are only so many people selected. And it's not something weren't gonna get 20% of the audience that has actually serve which is precisely why I'm asking you what it was like. Because. I have never had the distinction of serving on -- jury and -- to what I do for a living. I would suggest to you that the chance of -- ever being able to serve on a jury is there roughly slim. And -- there is no way -- heck I will ever be allowed to serve on a jury. My nephew wasn't even allowed to serve on the jury and he's just my nephew. My brother was allowed to serve injury and he's only my brother he ain't heavy he's my brother. 8030930. In the road is long. With many winding turns. Sorry to holly song. You might remember from way back went. All right so if fight if I have the of the calls on board I'll continue this topic got into the 6 o'clock hour if not I know it's a Monday. But is there ever were it's not a good day for a happy ending I think not so you guys on the terminal there are they serious or whether regular little goofy from six until seven. Our other man for all seasons. I can be a DB or I can be serious that matter to me. It's all about you guys it's all about you I aim to please you. Under little radio. Love you long time -- 8030930.
