The grand jury deciding not to indict Bryan Jennings Webb is a big deal, because getting an indictment is insanely easy. Indeed, the prosecution only needs to show that there is probable cause to proceed with a criminal case against a defendant, and the defense doesn't get to put on their case -- it's a completely one-sided affair. Not only that, but the burden of proof required to secure an indictment is merely that probable cause exists for an indictment. Probable cause is a far lower burden of proof than is a preponderance of the evidence (anything greater than 50%) or beyond a reasonable doubt (greater than 99% certainty). The old saying, "you could indict a ham sandwich" has stuck around because there's a lot of truth to that statement.
Again, it's worth noting that Bryan Jennings Webb did not get to put on his defense, but the grand jury decided not to indict him anyway -- that's substantial, considering the previously-mentioned ham sandwich threshold.
The officers from WANTF who railroaded Bryan Jennings Webb, showed up to his place of employment, got him fired on the spot, and subjected him to ridicule and humiliation deserve to be charged criminally. They lied about Bryan Jennings Webb in order to secure an arrest warrant, and he paid a steep price for their lies.
For those of you who do not remember, below is the chain of events surrounding the arrest of Bryan Jennings Webb.
On March 23, 2017, I drove around a mobile billboard to warn the people of Tuscaloosa that Crystal Rogeri was a narc.
The following day, I was illegally detained by WANTF for exercising my right of free speech. When WANTF detained me, the officers weren't happy that they had to let me go, so they decided to raid the house of the person (Bryan Jennings Webb) who lent me his truck to haul my mobile billboard. Bryan Jennings Webb was actually not home when WANTF came to his house, but one of his roommates was home, so they arrested her for having less than a gram of marijuana (she did not narc).
The officers of WANTF weren't happy to stop there. They later went to Bryan Jennings Webb's place of employment (a bank), and arrested him for a disorderly conduct charge that he had from two years in the past. Bryan Jennings Webb had no warrant for his arrest, the disorderly conduct charge had already been resolved, and he had no drugs on him at the time of his arrest two years prior, but the officers of WANTF lied when they said that he did have drugs on him. THEY LIED! Their lies got a man fired from his job, taken off in handcuffs, forced him to pay a bail bondsman in order to bail out of jail, and subjected him to ridicule and humiliation.
What WANTF did was beyond the pale! I was so excited that the charges against Bryan Jennings Webb were dismissed, that I paid a visit to WANTF immediately after I heard the news (Captain Wayne Robertson tried to arrest me for that too). There's a lot that I have to say about that, and I will write about that shortly, but for now, I want to bask in the good news that WANTF is losing its ability to get its way by bullying and intimidating people (and Captain Wayne Robertson is losing his grip on sanity).
