Vegas official arrested for reporter murder

Thu Sep 08, 2022 1:21 pm

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/el ... -rcna46707

Seems like a Vegas Democrat didn't like what the media reported on him and decided to kill the reporter in front of his house. The scene at his residence was insane as local media swarmed him as he returned home after questioning then barricaded himself in the house. Metro got media out of there and SWAT arrived, he sustained self inflicted non life threatening injuries. Metro then hauled him away. Evidence seems pretty strong so he will spend the rest of his life in jail.

Wow.

Wow.


It seems you failed to mention an important detail from the linked article that this guy lost reelection last June to his own subordinate. Clearly not the smoothest rock in the box. Now he'll go away to the klink where he belongs.

You mean he lost in the primary. So you inferring he blames the reporter for the loss?

All the articles I read point to that conclusion based on the expose done into his office,

https://www.reuters.com/world/us/after- ... 022-09-07/

German had spent months reporting on complaints that Telles had an inappropriate relationship with a subordinate and oversaw an abusive workplace, which Telles denied, saying the complaints were from disgruntled "old-timers."

Soon after German's investigation was published, Telles failed in his re-election bid, losing the Democratic primary in June. He was due to leave office in January.


Now we will have to let justice examine whether this guy was off his rocker enough to actually murder the reporter. It does seem like it.

Well here you go.

https://abcnews.go.com/US/county-offici ... d=89499026

A Nevada county official has been arrested and charged with murder in connection with the death of a Las Vegas investigative journalist, according to authorities.

Robert Telles, 45, was arrested Wednesday night following a SWAT operation at his home, officials said, after DNA evidence was found in his home that linked him to the crime scene.

Las Vegas Review-Journal reporter Jeff German was found stabbed to death outside his home on Sept. 3, according to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. Telles, who served as the Clark County public administrator, blamed German for ruining his career in politics and his marriage, prosecutors said Thursday.

Where in that link does it say he has mental illness? Which is a claim you made.

Off his rocker means behaving off the rails or in a strange way. It does not imply mental illness, but doesn't someone have to be a bit mental to stalk a reporter and stab them?

It means you are not of sound mind. It's ok his lawyer can go down that road but I think we both know this will be plead out as the evidence is just too damming.

Not necessarily. He should appoint a special master and plead his case in front of one of his friend judges. Apply the law even handedly to all, right?
