Dave Kane: The Highly Dubious Assistance of Patrick Lynch

In response to my e-mailed inquiry, the following was received from Dave Kane, the father of the youngest victim of the Station Night Club fire.

I promised myself that after the release of the Station fire land to the victims and their families, I would stop writing press releases and go quietly into the night. Then, just when I was ready to get out….they drag me back in. A report from WPRI TV says that former Attorney General Patrick Lynch is going to Brazil to help in the investigation of the Kiss Nightclub fire. Stop laughing. This is not a joke.
That’s right – Patrick Lynch. Gee, what could he do to help? I know. He could give advice to the club owners on how to make a good plea deal. He could advise the Law enforcement officials that the Building and Fire inspectors are above the law and cannot be charged. Hey, maybe he could offer his expertise as a defense lawyer for those responsible for this event.
I believe that Mr. Lynch could better serve this state by coming forward and telling the truth about his own very embarrassing incompetence and malfeasance. He could tell us about the decisions and deals that were made on who to indict and who should be allowed to walk, free. Hey Patrick, when you get to Brazil, stay there!

The fact that the crooked lawyers got $59 million dollars from the Station Fire law suit, is outrageous. Considering that all of the defendants settled OUT OF COURT . Judge Ronald Lagueux could have reduced this award to a sensible amount like 2 or 3 million dollars and awarded the victims children the remaining 56 million dollars. Instead he chose to side with his fellow lawyers. There is a Special place in Hell for Judges and lawyers who pull stunts like this
And to add insult to injury, the West Warwick taxpayers are now forced to pay the Fire Marshall (who inspected the Station 3 times with his eyes closed)disability checks FOR LIFE

The only thing Basketball Jones was ever good at was grabbing media attention for himself. Take away his family name and he’s just another third-tier lawyer-turned-politician, favor trading, media whoring, self-aggrandizing, and playing dirty politics for personal gain.
