The Ann Arbor News obtained the transcript of Officer Brooke Mullender’s testimony at a hearing seeking a probable cause warrant for Kristopher Pratt on Nov. 25. At that hearing, Magistrate Thomas Truesdell approved the complaint against Pratt.
Mullender testified witnesses told police Pratt and Ed Thomas planned to rob Reed at the party on the morning of Oct. 18.
“Apparently, he was wearing a very expensive belt and had some clothes on,” she said. “They decided to rob him and during the robbery he was shot … multiple times.”
Jeez, that makes it all the worse, if you ask me.
Oh, and on a related note: “Eastern Michigan University police force to grow by one-third as it highlights off-campus patrols.” Basically, EMU is hiring a total of 10 more cops by fall– they’ve already hired four, and another six are coming– bringing the force up to almost 40.
