Okay, here it is. Tommy Brown was in fact a duly-sworn deputy sheriff, but was acting, at the time of the incident, as a court appointed bailiff. So how is he considered during this investigation, the position he was sworn in as or the position he held at the time.

First, what training/certification did he have? Certification for the deputy position or the bailiff's position.

Now, for the more serious situation. As a bailiff, he was acting on his own, without the authority of a 'badge,' but as a deputy sheriff he had a different authority. His actions were still the same and any charges, if brought, should be the same.

As a bailiff or a deputy sheriff, he still did what he did and any investigation should be conducted the same. The big concern would be liability. If he were considered a deputy sheriff at the time, then the Sheriff's Department would be held civilly responsibility. This is a HUGE difference!!!!!

Would this sway an investigation? For Brandon's sake and his family, I hope not! And don't blast this post.....this is a fact!!!

See post number 73 on the shooting on the bypass thread. I was going on what I was told by someone that would know. I don't know how it plays since he was assigned to court security.

Yall have to get it right, he was not a dep.sheriff, he was court appointed security. He has a week of training in law enforcement. That was in the paper Friday. He had no right to even act as a cop unless judge says take your prisoner. He did have a CCDW. He was legal to have gun, but wasn't legal to murder a man.

Has not been proven he murdered a man. He did kill a man. A jury decides if it was murder. Not a mob.

IF IF IF IF IF what I heard is true, Brandon was shot in the back of the neck/shoulder area. IF IF IF IF IF that is true then it was murder. There are a lot of details to work out but Tommy should be held until charges were either filed or decided against.

Makes you wonder what bailiffs at the courthouse get away with at times.

This case should have had a change of venue to present to a grand jury. No fair trial or indictment would have occured in the county the shooting took place in.

From what I know of this incident, it seems as though there was a "dual" of sort. Under Kentucky Law every person has a right to be wherever they are legally able to be and has a right to defend himself including deadly force. Maybe this case will spur a new law that demands a "duty to retreat", if nothing is done, what future presidence does this case have? Something needs to be addressed here. Will there be more meaningless deaths?

PEOPLE LET IT GO!!! You keep bringing it up like it's going to change things. You are not the judge and jury. The case has been closed. Time to move on!

"Duty to retreat"? Are you shittin' me? Don't try to pussify the whole damn Country just because your boy made the mistake of pulling his gun on the wrong guy! God knows the Trayvon supporters are doing a good enough job of that. I understand that you're butt-hurt but listen to yourself! "Duty to retreat" is just bad policy for would-be victims of violent crime.

And your stupid ass just keeps commenting back. Both sides are pathetic like a bunch of idiots arguing over nothing. It's over let it go.

"Funny",

Now hold on there. Personally, I didn't know either of them and am not really on either "side". However, it's obvious to me that the Bradshaw side seems to be the most irrational. What is alarming to me is the fact that this whole "duty to retreat"/anti-stand-your- ground sentiment actually has some supporters! They should rename their agenda "duty to be a sniveling coward in the face of aggression". Call me a "stupid ass" for contributing a comment as YOU, yourself, bump the thread up one more notch. Do you not see the irony in that?

Tommy Brown was the one that took it to the extreme, he thought he was a bad ass because he was pissed that Brandon pulled out in front of him or something. Tommy you piece of shit, people are going to drive wrecklessly every day, your mouth started the trouble, in today's day and age you can't mouth off without it getting out of hand. Brandon had the right to produce a gun if a madman like tommy brown is approaching you getting in your face. What if pretty little Ann Blair Thorton or some little cute girl had been sitting in that vechile and pulled a gun and the other party would have fired, you better bet they would be in jail. Tommy Brown will burn in hell someday, you just remember Tommy that at your age your closer to Gods judgment than anything else.

You're WRONG! It was Bradshaw's fault! That's what the courts said.

I bet he's thankful that he was able to successfully defend himself when a belligerent guy with a history of drug use and behavior problems threatened his life with a gun.
Thank you
