Greg L. at Black Velvet Bruce Li probably understandably reluctant to raise this point, so I will:
He has posted the cease-and-desist letter sent by a Manassas Park city attorney on his website. The letter references the posts that the attorney considers “false and defamatory.” What’s interesting is that all of the posts concern only the Manassas Park police officers. None of the posts related to off-track betting, the mayor, or other city officials are mentioned.
I’ve also been told by sources close to the case that the attorney that sent the letter isn’t one of the attorney working on the larger lawsuit David Ruttenberg has filed against the city.
This lawyer, working for the city, appears to be only representing the cops. I’m not sure what to make of that, but it’s interesting.
Also interesting is that one of the posts mentioned in the letter is one where BVBL linked to my firsthand account of police abuse at Rack n’ Roll. I don’t know how they think they can approve the abuse didn’t happen. I saw it with my own eyes. As did about a dozen other people. And this, merely on that particular night.
