Another False Charge

Seems like the Cark County District Attorney wants to show that he is a tough on crime DA instead of the liberal that he is.
How else do explain this charge?
From the LV Sun: A California youth pastor faces a murder charge after an altercation outside a Las Vegas pub last summer that led to a man's death months later.
Robert Lynn Cox, a pastor at The Place of Refuge church in Manteca, California, was booked into the San Joaquin County Jail on Tuesday on murder and fugitive from justice charges. He's awaiting extradition to Nevada after being accused in the death of 55-year-old Link Ellingson of Las Vegas, who died Dec. 15 of hemorrhaging. An autopsy report said blunt head trauma from the fight was a significant contributing factor.
Family and friends say Cox was on a ministry trip to Texas with his wife and some church interns when they stopped for a late-night dinner at the Four Kegs pub on June 13, 2013. Group members said they were in the parking lot when Ellingson approached, threatened them and assaulted them.
"He said, 'Hey girlfriend, you want to 'F' with me?'" witness Kelli Lane told KTXL-TV ( "And Rob was immediately like, 'Oh my gosh, no,' backed up, 'I have kids here,' said no. And the man said, 'Well I'm coming to 'F' with you.'"
According to the witnesses, Cox grabbed the man and fell with him to the ground.
Ellingson hit his head on the pavement and went unconscious. When he died six months later at Summerlin Hospital, the coroner ruled the case a homicide.
Why in the hell would the supposed victim even go up to this group of people?  Why would he say the things he did?
Sorry the guy died, but you don't charge a guy with murder when the "victim" was a complete jackass and harrassed a group of people for no reason.
If the idiot "victim" didn't act like a complete moron, he would still be alive today.


  1. Thank you! This story has evolved. Have you seen the latest reports?

  2. Actually, another report says "Ellingson was pronounced dead at the Summerlin Hospital emergency room when a filter placed to prevent blockage in his lungs pierced the vein that carries blood from his brain.

  3. How would that be Rob's fault?

  4. This is absurd and he needs to be home with his family' .. I don't get how a drunk man who was out of his mind 'and approaching them wanting to fight' a whole youth group of young kid's and' for the fact he was starting a fight with a young teenage girl' and saying he wanted to F with her ' .. ' Rob did what any adult would do' .. HORRIABLE' that he is behind bars' when none of this would have even happened if it wasn't for the drunk man coming after him and his youth group !!

  5. He actually did less than I would have done! He tackled the guy and by accident the guy hit his head and died as a result. I would have belted the dude till he stopped. Oh and the pastor and group of kids prayed for the guy until the cops got there. This is a pathetic attempt by a small man, the DA, to grandstand, unbelievable.
