That long post immediately below this one? Here’s the essence of what it’s about.
Former L.A. Times reporter Chuck Philips wrote a front-page story saying some guy was innocent of murder. Except that there’s all sorts of evidence showing the guy isn’t innocent.
The L.A. Times had a lot of that evidence, but didn’t publish it.
One of the pieces of evidence was a civil deposition the murderer gave. I have a copy here.
In that deposition, the guy said he was framed for murder by the same guy who killed both Biggie Smalls and Tupac Shakur. This made the murderer sound, I don’t know . . . kind of like a guy spinning tall tales. Like a cheap con artist.
The L.A. Times had that deposition. But they didn’t report the parts that made their oh-so-innocent guy sound like a cheap con artist. Instead, they reported a bunch of other stuff from the deposition, and played it up to make it sound credible.
The stuff they reported benefited Suge Knight — a guy Philips has been accused of being wayyy too close to.
Oh, and the guy’s claim of innocence may also be predicated on forged or phony documents.
That’s about it. Now, if you’re ready, go back and read the whole thing — or as much as you can slog through.
P.S. Oh . . . I should also mention that the FBI has apparently been investigating allegations that Philips smuggled messages from Suge Knight to the imprisoned murderer. I have new information on that, too.
Now go read the big post on this.
