It will be many months before we can truly assess what happened to Erik Scott at the Costco on Las Vegas on July 10, 2010.
Eyewitness accounts are all over the place. The Metro police have circled the wagons. The County has refused to allow the family's attorney to review evidence before the inquest. One commenter on this blog claims to have known Scott on the club scene and claims he was an angry "roider" (steroid user).
Pajamas media has an analysis that states that Scott's girlfriend was present at the shooting, information I did not see in media reports.
The analysis on Pajamas media suspects that the inquest will be a police whitewash. If so, contrary evidence will not emerge until after lawsuits are filed. Lawsuit discovery (depositions and the like) are not normally public and besides, will not take place until long after the public attention span.
