Len Gregor: "The Man"

Here is a post that Len Gregor wrote to someone inquiring about law school. The word in bold is the way he put it:
If you decide to continue in criminal justice, I'd be happy to talk with you and help you in any way I can, but it is a tough job market, even for the man. Budgets have been slashed at all levels, state and local. Entry level for law enforcement usually means a couple or more years working in a local jail - not too glamorous. A four year degree and internships can get you a gig with the Federals - a pretty good gig with the alphabet police or other agencies. Going to law school was one of the best choices I ever made. I love being a prosecutor. I love being the man. It was worth the time, effort, and money.

Last bit of unsolicited free advice - do something that you have a passion for, don't settle for less if at all possible. Sounds to me like you should be in the automotive field in some capacity.

Indeed, in the Lookout Mountain Judicial Circuit, Gregor has been "the man," but he has not been a man of justice.

Is Gregor telling the person he is addressing that he should go into the automotive field rather than law school??? That's classy!!!

Not much different than what Melidia Clewell a reporter covering the case for WRCB 3 in Chattanooga has on her twitter page. Don't see Bill calling her out for that.

Bio Media Maven managing my own Ivory Tower, occasionally show up for paid gig @WRCB

Just checked WRCB's update on the trial. Stacy Long is on the stand and apparently she doesn't like being questioned, rolling her eyes and the prosecution is bored. Well if they are so bored and their witnesses so perfect, why don't they just rest their case and let the defense proceed with theirs. I happen to know about Stacy Long too, she is just another one of CAC's goons.

To 11:42, what exactly do you find wrong with what clewell is twittering??? And why do you insist on posting anonymously???

THIS WAS A MESSAGE I RECIEVED ON FACEBOOK FROM A CLOSE PERSONAL FAMILY FRIEND OF THE ALLEGED "VICTIMS". How can I get in contact with the defense about this?

Anonymous said...

That sounds like a threat to me, but ghee who are you going to report that to??

tl said...

Harmony, perhaps you could e-mail the above to wrcb??? You might try sending it to the attention of Melydia Clewell, I am sure someone at WRCB would know how to get that to the defense team!!!!

Do these experts get paid to be on the stand?

Anonymous said...

I know when you have experts for the defense, they are paid, don't know about the ones the state calls.

Thank you.

They are paid well with our tax dollars and the many private donations the CAC receives

William L. Anderson said...

The state experts are paid, trust me.

As for the Facebook message, you can bet that someone is making a veiled threat. Ordinarily, the law would deal with it, but right now that is not possible in Catoosa County. I wish things were different, but they are not.

I have no idea if anyone from the defense reads this blog or the comments, and I cannot give legal advice from this blog. Nonetheless, this is a serious matter and I would not be surprised if one of the attorneys on the defense is not interested.

Sad when you are threatened and can do nothing about it. Maybe a good idea to email it to Melydia Clewell and she can get it to the defense attorneys. She has a facebook page and you could message her.

Who is Angela Carroll? I dont recognize that name?

judy said...

The Man...turns out isnt such a great man after all...Oh the fall, the tumble

Harmony Edwards said...

Angela Carrol and her family is a close friend of all the families involved.

Harmony, please elaborate on the "heart to heart". What exactly is she wanting to save you from and how is it putting her at risk?

Denise C. said...

Sounds like to me that something is weighing heavy on her heart that she needs to get out. I am thinking she has guilt weighing on her, but she is afraid to talk. She doesn't know who she can go to. I myself am curious on what she has to say. It might be straw that break the prosecutions case wide open, so to speak.

Anonymous said...

That could be, but somehow, I don't think that is what she wants. It sounds too much like a threat to me.

I think when all is said and done "The Man" is going to wish he had never taken on this case!!

There's nothing in the email message that Harmony Edwards posted that would legally be considered a threat. And to be factual about states witness fees you should check with the local office to determine their pay. It's usually only $25 or $35 dollars per day. Not sure what it is there.

William L. Anderson said...

I would be quite surprised if these witnesses were being paid only $25 or $35. Guess it is public record, and I could be wrong.

I only can say that my witness rates are a good bit higher than that. It is a possibility that I will be asked to testify next month in a case and just my going to the site and being at the courthouse will require a fairly large sum.

As a private individual you are compensated at a rate equvilant to your qualifications. Employees of public agencies are regulated in regards to witness fees. Contact the local sheriff and ask what the witness fee is I think you would be shocked to learn that they are there for such a small amount.

kbp said...

Just respond and have Angela email you. Leaves a trail to follow IF there is anything important she ahs to say.

She's prolly reading here!

****************

As for The MAN, he holds a false security. I won't even go into what all that affects in his life outside of the career.

"As a private individual you are compensated at a rate equivalent to your qualifications. "

So, what you're saying the state's "experts" should be testifying for free? :)

I am a Sexual Assault Nurse Examnier and I work for an Agency similar to CAC and I make $100 a day for a court appearance.

tandt said...

Harmony, I would agree with kbp. She is probably reading this, but I would ask her to email me. If she doesn't respond, there are ways to find out what she means.

If you want it to get to Melydia, she lives right behind me. I can make sure she gets it.

Also, if any of these people want to take it too far, bring it on, I'm a firm believer in the Constitution and that's all I will say. :-)

William L. Anderson said...

To the 3:31

I take it that your testimony is more professional and more honest than what we have seen from Sharon Anderson!

Stacy Long is proof that even the homeliest woman can get pregnant in Alabama. Of course, the way she acted in court today suggests that she has no sense of how to act.
