Lt. Scott Rossmiller, WCSO - Deposition Transcript (Federal), March 11, 2014

Now this is a very interesting deposition in light of my concerns about what 'really happened' in this trumped up mess.

In short, a number of things were said, some in jest, some poking fun, some just being plain rude, in a mostly joking and jovial training setting. Words spoken aren't always said matter of factly and most people in a social setting like that don't speak like they are testifying in court or doing a press interview so the comments run the spectrum on serious, joking, incredulous, sarcastic, wisecracks and the like......

.......but ONLY mine were treated as though it was a courtroom atmosphere and I was on the witness stand.

One day later, Rossmiller is ordering the two trainers to submit memorandums alleging a variety of not so pleasant mischaracterizations about me. Things that don't belong in a professional police memo were written about me.

The two trainers, Roger Funk and Dave Scott both state that they didn't report anything to Rossmiller or anyone else, but Rossmiller somehow divines out of thin air that he needs them to submit a memo about me to start an investigation? Perhaps this sudden desire to investigate came to him in a dream?

Rossmiller also states that he was not in the class (a remote lower courthouse room) the night of the training when I know for a fact he was. In fact, we passed each other right outside the classroom and exchanged some remarks during one of the breaks when I stepped outside and he was headed into the classroom. But according to his testimony here, he wasn't there? Electronic access records from the unique door cardlock system would probably prove otherwise.

Also, Rossmiller is in every stage of this so called 'investigation' up to and including his office being within feet of where the computers are turned in for repairs.

Means. Motive. Opportunity. That's what I'm saying. It's not hard. Do the math. The pieces are mostly all there.
