NH AG Kelly Ayotte gives Fred Hoysradt -- another abusive, dangerous cop -- a get out of jail free pass.

Just as I've said, Kelly Ayotte is the Devil incarnate. Here's today's Union Leader story, you know the paper that gave her the "Citizen of the Year" award. What a joke. Visit New Hampshire.... and die!

PORTSMOUTH – Investigators initially pursued a handful of charges, including sexual assault, against a former police captain who allegedly attacked a reporter for The Portsmouth Herald before the state Attorney Generals Office settled on a deal for a single misdemeanor with no jail time, according to files released yesterday.

Fred Hoysradt, 47, of Barrington pleaded no contest this month to misdemeanor simple assault for an incident in the home of crime reporter Elizabeth Dinan in July 2008. He was fined $1,200.

A state police trooper who investigated the incident recommended five charges, including three misdemeanor simple assaults, one misdemeanor sexual assault and one misdemeanor criminal trespassing.
Small wonder you got kids like Liko Kenney scared shitless from these cops, and the more Kelly plays this game the more likely they are to die in the "line of duty" whatever that is. As a former AAG, I gotta say, she is the pits, the absolute worst AG on Civil Rights you will ever see.

Here is Kelly Ayotte's legacy, and here's the latest on the mentally handicapped children being abused under her watchful eye.

NH Disabilities Rights Center claims child abuse under John Lynch/Kelly Ayotte administrations.

Why am I not surprised at the accusations at the brand-spanking (sorry) new Sununu Youth Services Center, given Kelly Ayotte's proven track record seen linked in the Unconstitutional DNA Reporting update post. Here's the Concord Monitor Story.
Gary Smith, president of the State Employees' Association, said both Health and Human Services and the attorney general had investigated the claims of abuse. All the workers involved, Smith said, were exonerated.

"They found no wrongdoing," Smith said. "These are not two organizations that take these matters lightly or would be prone to covering things up. We stand behind what the outcome was."

Those investigations were insufficient, according to the Disabilities Rights Center. Documentation was scarce, the report said, and many required forms were incomplete, missing or difficult to obtain. The report also expressed concern about a lack of oversight at the youth center.....

The youth center's practices, the report found, are outdated, are harmful to children and don't employ best practices for dealing with people with mental illnesses.

"There are some really good standards out there that require that the center take a more treatment-based, rehabilitative approach versus the more punitive approach they seem to be taking," Cohen said.

When the investigation began last June, Cohen was concerned about the boy's well-being, but those worries soon broadened. Between 68 percent and 80 percent of children served by New Hampshire's juvenile justice system are diagnosed with mental illness. The staff members who interact with them on a daily basis, Cohen said, may not be equipped to deal with the complexities of their conditions.....

During one restraint that July, the report said, J.D.'s elbow was fractured, although he didn't receive proper medical care in part because the X-ray machine was broken. According to the report, this wasn't the first time J.D. was hurt while at the youth center. That May, he was examined for head and hand injuries, although it's unclear how they occurred.

With NH AG Kelly Ayotte at the helm, no one is safe.
