Patrick at Badger Blogger has audio of Michael McGee on the radio this morning. He said in part:
It’s the government trying to be nosey in somebody’s personal business. This is a family altercation. They wasn’t even… you know.. us trying to kill somebody anyway. And they got brother ___ . Come on. As much as he done did for people. The people just got to understand that, you know, it’s a family situation. And a young guy Pierre and his family. We never talked about hurtin’ him or killin’ him. I just want people to know that…that the government is tryin’ to use our language against us. Don’t even know what we talkin’ about.You know, I just want people to understand that…
And even on the federal side…entrapment, tryin’ to set me up, so I need people’s support. A lot of peopl… who put me in… Put up $100 we could get outta here.
He says “they” are creating hurdles for him to get out of jail. Yeah. That’s called BAIL.
And he sang a song about being soldiers. Wow. Impressive.
UPDATE: The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is repearting that the “beat-down” is related to a theft of $4,800 cash and a semiautomatic gun from Little Stewart’s home. Stewart is one of the co-conspirators. McGee refers above to Pierre Crawley, a man who lived with Stewart for a period of time and was suspected of committing the burglary. It is alleged that McGee, Stewart, and Dimitrius Jackson were looking for the victim and discussed “quick-sanding” Crawley, as well as “peeling back his wig” and “sewing his cap together.
