You're right Jack. Many officials use that secrecy to their advantage, not for justice. As they say, "You can indict a ham sandwich in a Grand Jury". Unfortunately some of them regard a human life lower than a ham sandwich. What makes it so bad is they answer to no one. Because the Grand Jury proceedings are secret they can do what they want without answering to anyone for their actions. No one sees what goes on behind closed doors. That's what makes my case so different. I have the Grand Jury minutes. I can prove District Attorney Sand misused the Grand Jury. I hope to use this as a way to show that there has to be some accountability. Without accountability there will always be someone to abuse their powers of office and there will always be a mistrust by the American people of their justice system. And there will always be dishonest district Attorneys, like Robert Sand, to betray that trust.

Vin Sr. I don't know if you are following the death of the young shot by police officers. the grand jury in that case failed to find fault with the officers though there were many different accounts. Most saying the boy was just moving his car as directed by the polioe and then was allowed to bleed to death on the sidewalk. I couldn't understand how that was presented to show that one sided testimony. But after reading your case and how that district attorney in Vermont manipulated the grand jury in your case makes sense now why they keep them private. So they can do whatever they want and present the evidence as they see fit, regardless of the truth! This is a disgrace to the American justice system!

Thank you anonymous. These tips are very helpful. It also shows the concern from citizens of the lawlessness in Vermont. The outpouring of help has really helped immensely in preparing the case against Bolaski. It is very distressful to see the hold Bolaski has on the judiciary. Do they really believe that they are above the law? Bolaski is going away for life, no matter how much they try to protect him. Then justice will visit Sand and those that aided him. And it is with the courage of citizens like yourself that will make it possible. Thank you and everyone that like you has the courage to do the right thing and make a stand.

Vin Sr. my son told me that Kyle was bragging that he was arrested again, not long after his drug arrest with shooting and possession of a firearm and drug possession. But he said they never charged him! Kyle was bragging that he has them by the balls! You should have your lawyer check into this! If this is true then there is something very seriously wrong here! Anyone else would be in jail by now! What does Bolaski have on Sand? Was Sand paid off? If what you say is true about giving this new prosecutor evidence you have collected implicating more people, Why has no one else been charged with anything? Are you going to put this evidence on your site? I hope so. I know there is a lot of people that is dying to see the truth. Good luck in your fight!

As long as Attorney General Sorrell protects these corrupt lawmakers and allows this corruption to continue, then nothing will change. But since he is as corrupt, corrupt enough to allow murder to happen and then hide it what can you expect from his underlings?

I cant believe Sands is still practicing in the AG's office. 60 MINUTES should do a shown on VT corruption. Best wishes, White River Joe

Joe, You're right. What a scam. What Sand said doesn't make sense because the officer admits there were no bruises. The man was not arrested until the complaint against the police 2 weeks later. Even if the man did what they said it should not overshadow what the officer did which was far worse. This woman was hospitalized due to the officer, not her boyfriend. I hope they follow up on the complaint and don't let it go. The judiciary will just drag it out until the people give up.

Mr: Valley News story on Sands: What a scam......1/09/11
Sand said he supported a review of Adams' actions -- “that absolutely should be looked at” -- but said concerns about police actions should not overshadow evidence that Kucera assaulted Therrien before police arrived on the scene.

Windsor County State's Attorney Robert Sand, who is prosecuting the case against Kucera, dismissed any suggestion that police were pursuing Kucera to hide their own troubles.

May God Bless you and your family throughout the Holiday season. I hope you find the justice and peace that you are looking for!

Mike Byrnes, I always thought you were more of a man than what you displayed yourself as. I can now see how wrong I was! Your true colors have finally shown through.

Merry Christmas Li’l Vinnie,
I also wondered what kind of effect your passing would have on us at this time each year, and then I would spot these little unexplainable things happening all around us and knew we weren’t spending Christmas without you. I knew because, as certain things take place you were the first person that came to mind no matter what we were doing, and, with that, I knew we’d never spend another Christmas without you. We Love you, VIN, and I know you still experience everything this holiday has to offer, because you let us know that in your own way.

I know this time of year must be very hard on your family. I wish you all the best and a very Merry Christmas.

To the Tamburello family: I would like to wish you all the very best at this most Holy time of the year. I hope you find justice and closure. Merry Christmas and God Bless you!

Vin Sr. I can't say this enough: DON'T TRUST LAVOIE!! HE IS A SORRELL STOOGE!
12-04-2010 1:16:03 AM EST
I am so sorry for your loss! I understand your frustration and pain. It never leaves. I hope through the years you have been able to find some sort of closure. Please accept our deepest condolences!

My mother was killed by a drunk driver and went free because the officer that answered the phone never said it was a recorded line and the confession on the tape was thrown out. He then went three days later WITH his lawyer to report his van stolen! This was back in 1988...Hope you have better luck. My prayers are with you and your family.

Friend, thank you for your concern You are right in that they have done this for so long that they feel they can now get away with murder. And that's exactly what they are trying to do! The shame of it is that the people cannot even get them out of office as the majority of them, including Sand, is running unopposed! It is like their own clique where no one else is allowed in, but they are a dictatorship! When they allow a murder to happen, it can never be justified. If they had just done the right thing from the beginning then this would have all been in the past and the guilty parties will have been made to pay for taking my son's life. No one from the judiciary has come to us and tried to explain that we are wrong. Instead they are just trying to cover everything up. Because of their positions they do believe they are invincible. But no one is above the law. And I will fight them until my dying breath!

Vin Sr. My brother in law is employed in the Vermont judicial system. I'd rather not say which part but I have been reading this story from day 1 and I must tell you he and many other people in the judicial system are ashamed of the actions of the state. What they have done to your family is inexcusable and reprehensible! You are right in your assumption that this was done for their informants. I am writing to tell you that if you want justice for your son you must get it out of Vermont. You will never get justice if you don't. They can't allow it. If the true story ever comes out, there will be jobs lost and humiliation for Vermont. These people have done this for years. They have gotten away with it for so long they think they are invincible! But no one has gone as far as you have! I commend you! But I must also warn you they are now protecting themselves more than the defendants. I wish I could tell you more but I can tell you this; you are on the right track! Keep at it. Don't let them get away with this. You have them on the defensive! Good Luck and God Bless.

I really respect the strength and courage the victims family has shown throughout this case. As an observer and a student preparing to enter law school, I am appalled at the way the state of Vermont and Robert Sands have handled this case. Obviously the actions of the individual who committed the shooting were those far beyond the realm of self-defense. I think this case really conveys the corruption within the legal system and how important access to money is in delaying sentencing and altogether avoiding conviction. If the individual who committed this crime did not have access to large sums of money and was an ethnic or religious minority, he would already have two years of prison behind him. District Attorney Sands really needs to be replaced. He let Martha Davis, a lawyer, off without any penalty after she was caught by state authorities with copious amounts of marijuana growing on her property. Marijuana, she planted, and subsequently consumed. If the guilty party was a 22 year old male landowner or a blue-collar family, what would their verdict of been? It really has come time for Vermonters to get involved within the political and legal realm as unchecked and left to its own devices it has fallen into stagnation, decay, and inequality. In solidarity with the Tamburello's, I too hope justice prevails and the individual who murdered your son and accomplices involved are awarded just prison sentence to answer to their crimes of murder and accessory to murder.
