Update August 2015: Judge Pearson will not reverse the fraudulent “conviction” of Mike Weston even though the State and Washoe County DA has no objections to vacating the fraudulent “conviction” of Mike Weston and admits to altering the dash cam video in court docs. Mike plans to continue the protest in August 2015 in front of the Washoe courthouse in Reno, Nevada.
2016 update: MIKE WESTON -2016 NEW MOTION TO VACATE
June 27, 2012 – Mike Weston has filed a motion to vacate his “conviction” of the criminal obstruction/delay of a peace officer in the Reno court. Local media assured Mike and NVwatchdog that they will pursue this story and Mike will take a lie detector test and he challenges NHP trooper Bowers to do the same for the press investigation and NVwatchdog’s investigation. So far NHP is not commenting officially or returning calls for public comments.
Some anonymous people are posting various thoughts on the clock in question as being video storage/memory time remaining on the dash cam. However, NHP originally stated the time was the troopers time on and/or remaining on duty. We need to know what make and model is the recorder? Is there a history of time defects on the said recorder, etc. As of June 2, 2012 NHP refuses to answer any questions. It is suspected that the military time clock was superimposed, but NHP failed to correctly alter the time on duty clock. We want to get these facts right and we need NHP to be forthcoming with information to which they have not.
On the you tube time stamp 45:43 Mike approaches trooper Bowers and report he was nearly run off the road by the SUV/truck Bowers pulled over. This is the moment at around 45:43 to 45:49 where the tape is missing dialog of Mike explaining the situation. The cars traveling east show inconsistent headlight trails frame by frame. We hope the local press fact finders can assist in the video analysis done by a profession reputable company for an experts opinion on this matter.
This project is a work in progress, • I’ll produce a part II to this that covers the court transcripts and more. NHP visited the evidence room twice and then told Mike the tape was destroyed. NHP did not produce the tape for discovery on time for the court. NHP gave Mike a copy without the sound originally.
Furthermore if you listen to the entire recording of the NHP incident, it is very, very clear Bowers had a grudge against Mike related to a previous complaint against Bowers for unprofessional conduct when Mike reported icy roads and a car accident.
Again, listen the the entire incident and Mike initially reports he was terrorized by the SUV/truck Bowers had just pulled over for speeding. Mike’s conduct was proper considering the situation and Mike complied with the troopers orders. Bowers even acknowledges Mike did nothing wrong at time-stamp 16:20 It is very evident the trooper Bowers acted under the color of law and committed perjury by retaliating against Mike Weston. Ed Bowers is the classic example of a cop with an ax to grind against someone.
