Here is the 2nd story in the series about Robert Caruso and Spokane County. Here we have a good prosecutor in this state who is being drug through the mud, yet we have trash like this getting away murder, literally. I know we believe whatever happens on the other side of the state does not affect us but it really does, Once I have finished up this series you will see exactly why.
I’ve written about the allegations against Robert Caruso a Spokane attorney made by a woman with a history of drug abuse, and false reporting.
So as soon as I tie the last name Caruso to Lin O’Dell and Steve Tucker (The Spokane County Prosecutor who thankfully is on his way out the door) The Washington State Attorney General picks up the case & charges him.
I am not even sure if that is legal but what it did do is let me know that there is a connection to all of these people all the way to the Attorney General’s office.
Tucker is the perfect example of everything that is wrong with our “system”

Tucker’s office to be reviewed
Spokane County commissioners agreed Tuesday to pay for an outside review of the prosecutor’s office. Commissioners gave consultant David Bennett $5,000 to bring in a yet-to-be-identified Florida prosecutor to analyze Prosecutor Steve Tucker’s office.
And don’t you DARE run against him, or you will pay (Just like Robert Caruso is)

Prosecutors’ mixup takes death penalty off the table
A Deer Park man accused of murdering a witness in an assault case against him will avoid the death penalty because prosecutors mismanaged the case, a judge ruled Wednesday.
Of Course Tucker has an excuse for everything…
One woman did try to stand up to him but she was unsuccessful because “of course” all the Judges ruled in Tucker’s favor and the local media seems to have their noses so far up his ass that I’m surprised any of them can still breathe
If anyone has any doubts about how corrupt this guy is then just a quick search turns up this document which lays out just how many different ways this guy is dirty. It also perfectly illustrates just how much the prosecution and judiciary gets away with in this state under the “protection” of the Washington State Bar Association WSBA
Now with just a few of those stories above I’m hoping that you realize that Tim Rasmussen came from Spokane under Tucker’s rule and brought his own form of high school drama and corruption to Stevens County…

Murder trial delayed months while judge, prosecutor feud
Kristen Cosby has no patience for quarrels among Stevens County judicial officers. Cosby’s mother was the victim of an Oct. 3, 2009, homicide. Her father, Craig Raymond Cosby, is the suspect.
The big thing about Tucker is he never files charges against any law enforcement officer no matter if they are wrong but then there is something else far worse…
Under his watch child abusers and molesters seemed to have flourished to the point that Spokane is the “go to place” for those interested in receiving or producing child porn, even those in the public sector and even more disturbing is the fact that his office does little if anything to stop it unless the FBI steps in to stop it.

These are just a few of the stories for a couple of years ~ So the resounding message is if you are a killer cop or a child molester you are more then welcome in Spokane County, not only are you welcome but you will be protected unless the FBI steps in and there is NO instance where the FBI has stepped in to intervene in any of the killer cops cases so if you’re a trigger happy cop you are home free here.
I wonder how Tucker convinced the Wa AG to get involved in this farce. We know that Tucker is on his way out and that Caruso ran against him. Caruso took 36% of the vote in 2006 & ever sine then Tucker has had it in for him (which is why he had to get an outside agency involved) Any buffoon with more then 3 brain cells can see this is a last ditch effort by Steve Tucker to use his office to abuse his power before he loses all control over Spokane County.
So how is the Washington Attorney General’s office going to justify this woman’s history? How are they going to find an untainted jury pool in this state? Since when has the Washington State Attorney’s office EVER filed rape charges against anyone? They had to have reviewed this case before they decided to venture into now charging common citizens, so how are they going to justify taking this woman’s word when she has already been deemed dishonest and mentally unstable? I can not wait til the truth comes out and when Mr Caruso presents his defense and their whole case falls to shit… Unless they railroad him or make up evidence that is the only way they will be successful and even then it would be such a blatant set up that everyone will know the truth. Like I said now it’s time to focus on the Attorney General’s Office. He has ties to Spokane, Snohomish County and Preston Ellis & Gates (the former law firm now KL Gates after they were tied to the Franklin Sex Abuse Scandal & the Abramoff corruption scandal which are both one in the same.
Ferguson went to law school at New York University. After receiving his law degree from NYU, Ferguson began his legal career in Spokane, where he served as a law clerk for Chief Judge William Fremming Nielsen of the Federal District Court for Eastern Washington, who was appointed by George H. W. Bush.He then clerked for Judge Myron Bright of the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals in the Midwest, who was appointed by Lyndon Johnson. After his clerkship, Ferguson returned to Seattle and joined Preston Gates & Ellis (now K&L Gates) as a litigator, where he represented individuals, businesses, local governments, and Washington corporations. After four years at Preston Gates & Ellis, Ferguson decided to run for the King County Council.
I guess no one in this state worries about the “Appearance of Impropriety” because they really don’t have to.
