Today begins the trial of black New Jersey police officer Joseph Walker over the “road rage” killing of white victim Joseph Harvey (Jury selection begins in road-rage murder case).

Unfortunately, it does not appear that this case will be televised, as were the Zimmerman and Dunn trials in Florida, and as a result there seems no opportunity for the kind of live coverage we were able to conduct in those cases.  

We will keep you up to date based on news reports of the trial.

To date we’ve covered the Walker case closely, and we’ll continue to do so as available information allows–subject as always to the invariably biased and incorrect news reporting of the mainstream media.  Our past coverage can be reviewed below:

“Road Rage” Murder Trial: Witness Says Walker Shot Stopped Harvey ~40′ Away 

“Road Rage” Murder Trial: Walker Appeared to Goad Harvey: “Come on.”

“Road Rage” Murder Trial Delayed to July

 “Road Rage” Murder Trial: Motion to Dismiss, Grand Jury Testimony

. . . and much more.
