Conflicts of Interest: The State

The state's investigation of the killing of Woody was fatally flawed from the beginning by a bias that was revealed in a remarkable press release by the Vermont State Police on December 3, which stated "officers Hollbrook and Parker discharged their service pistols when they believed their safety and members of the congregation's safety were threatened." This statement on the day after the shooting is the answer to precisely the question the State Police were tasked with investigating under the direction of the local State's Attorney and/or the Attorney General, and supposedly continued to investigate until April 2. But even if one could overlook this incredible disclosure, they could still easily find conflicts of interest both with State's Attorney Dan Davis and with the various players in the Attorney General's Office.
