It’s Cases like Ryan Thompson that highlight how flawed The American Justice System really is. The night of April 18th, 1998 is one that would change the lives of Thompson and his friends forever. A stray bullet fatally hit Robert McCaffery during a local house party in Plainfield, Connecticut where Thompson and Friends had attended. After an altercation among some of the other party guests had occurred, a fight had started between David Stebbins (long time friend of Ryan Thompson’s and brother to Brandi Stebbins) and Robert Latour over a girl.
With the booze flowing the petty squabble escalated to a shouting match outside the home where host Ron Harding was forced to stop the party.
With all the commotion Thompson and his friends decide to leave; in the car with him were Best friends Jared Gilkenson, Robert Caemu , David Stebbins, and then girlfriend Brandi Stebbins. Brandi ends up getting a hysterical call from a friend after dropping off most of the group accusing her brother of Murder. As the confusion starts The pair immediately headed back to the party to get to the bottom of this seemingly impossible scenario. Brandi had just driven her brother home and knew that she had to straighten things out. Officers had already arrived at the scene and were questioning potential witnesses. With emotions running high and fueled by alcohol Thompson had talked his way into a police cruiser. Thompson had been originally arrested that night for breach of peace, but it would only be later on that Thompson would be used as a scapegoat for the Murder. The police using manipulation on witnesses to persuade a particular outcome, with all fingers pointing to Thompson it seemed obvious who the killer was… but was it really?
Almost immediately after witness testimony had been submitted retraction followed. Filled with regret the friends could not let the pressure of the police for a speedy conviction get to them. Many witnesses reported aggressive interrogation tactics and blatant coercion. The police had used false statements allegedly by Thompson in order to gain a certain outcome. Rush jobs are always shit jobs, there is no room for error when it comes to the public safety and societal justice. So why is it that such an injustice is allowed to continue!?
In light of the retractions of multiple testimonies, the case was not thrown out and Ryan Thompson had been sentenced to 25 years by a jury of his “peers”. Ryan Thompson is still fighting, and his case is being taken to the Supreme Court. He needs your help in sharing the awareness of this Giant issue plaguing Americans!
