Reminder: #FreeKate’s Father ‘Pressured a Victim Not to File a Battery Charge’

Posted on | August 22, 2013 | 23 Comments

The father of accused sex offender Kaitlyn Hunt is a disgraced ex-cop, who lost his police job ten years ago:

May 21, 2004 — WEST MELBOURNE, Fla. – A police officer involved in a nightclub quarrel resigned after an internal affairs review showed he pressured a victim not to file a battery charge, officials said Thursday.
Sgt. Steve Hunt, who joined the West Melbourne Police Department in 1996, resigned Tuesday after the internal investigation on official misconduct allegations was completed.
Reports show Hunt lied to his supervisors about contacting a man he had gotten into an argument with on Oct. 11 [2003].
The incident happened at the 702 Nightclub in downtown Melbourne, said Sgt. Sean Riordan, spokesman for the Melbourne Police Department.
“It was a disturbance where one person pushed another,” Riordan said. No arrests were made, but West Melbourne investigators found Hunt placed multiple calls to the other man and convinced him not to pursue a battery charge, reports show.

Intimidating the victim of a crime? A few years after this disgrace, Kaitlyn’s parents divorced, and you can read what an acquaintance says about the home life Kaitlyn’s mother provided for her kids.

    So we have a past history of intimidating witnesses.

    CNN felt obliged to print Ms Graves unsubstantiated smear of the minor victim’s family think they’ll pick up on this? Not likely but I’m sure there will be more.

    With no other news organizations working the story RSM can let this just dribble out. One has to wonder if there are any other young women down there with something to get off their chest. Just itching to talk to a reporter. Looking for a little payback, perhaps?

    I posted in a previous story that I read The Lonely Conservative has had trouble accessing your blog. A lightbulb went off and I, too, was having trouble last week. I kept being re-routed to your WordPress log in page, or to a search engine page. I thought it may have been Team K shenanigans, but now I am not so sure.

    Oh God, seriously? Steve Hunt did that?

    If you’re a weirdo that gets into fights with random strangers and tries to beat them up, you belong in jail. Whether you’re a celebrity, a policeman, or whatever… you belong in jail.
