Man shot by federal marshals pleads not guilty to other charges

FAIRFIELD — A Fairfield fugitive shot by federal marshals Thursday in a Walmart parking lot while being apprehended pleaded not guilty Tuesday to weapons charges.

Markell Davis, 27, also pleaded not guilty to attempted murder, assault and cocaine possession charges arising from a Feb. 17 shooting on Clay Bank Road in which Davis, a cousin and an innocent bystander were wounded.

Davis was shot twice in the altercation between the occupants of two cars traveling down Clay Bank Road. Davis was riding with his cousin at the time of the shooting. The cousin, who was also shot and wounded during the dispute, was ordered last week to stand trial on attempted murder and related charges.

Police said Davis’ brother, Cory L. Davis, 33, of Suisun City, was also shot Thursday while trying to flee from officers who were investigating his brother’s shooting. Prosecutors have not yet filed any charges against Cory Davis.

Markell Davis, who is in jail with a $1 million bail, was ordered to return to court April 21 for a probable cause hearing.

    The problem with the criminal justice system is that you can plead not guilty, delay and suck up taxpayers money with no recourse. They should change the laws. If you plead not guilty and are subsequently found guilty or admit guilt to the crime you were first charged with, you should receive the high term sentence for wasting our time and money. We basically have criminals come to court, boldface lie to the judge and say they are not guilty and then later plead guilty to the charge they previously denied committing. For all of this lying, the taxpayer is on the hook for; Judge's time, stenographer's time, bailiff's time, DA's time, prosecutors time, jailer's time and much more.

    This is not Iran and you need to go read the US Constitution. If you want the shootings and mayhem to stop, then you need to abolish both the welfare and police states that your politicians and cop thugs started that caused this to happen.

    Good luck trying to get someone on welfare to pay up. You might be able to sell their Cadillac or Escalade for $500 dollars at a gov-thug auction.

    "pleaded not guilty Tuesday to weapons charges. Markell Davis, 27, also pleaded not guilty to attempted murder, assault and cocaine possession charges " Let see 1) Weapon charges, 2) Attempted Murder (Stemming from the Clay Bank shoot out), 3) Assault, and finally, but probably not last, that they got caught at, 4) Cocaine Possession. Then I read the other day, that they were described as, "Good People." Give me a break. Anyone that believes that can KISS THIS!!!!! Put them UNDER the jail, not IN IT.

    They probably haven't filed charges on Cory yet because they're listening to him sing.

    @Rich-No this isn't Iran. This is a country that was founded by men who thought that enslaving another race was an acceptable way to fund free labor. Our rules our outdated in this country. The constitution was written by slave owners in a totally different world than we live in today. The laws that we base our criminal justice system on are largely British parliamentary law, correct me if I am wrong oh learned one? So, you're telling me that I should follow the written words of slave owners from 3 centuries ago? No thank you, mr.WASP.

    "boom" I suggest you change your name to "BUST" since you are uttering vile falsehoods. You ignore history and try to inject completely false statements about the founding of our great republic and you impugn the integrity of the truly great men who had the wisdom and foresight needed to establish the most enlightened nation in the history of the earth. Go soak your head if you can find a pointed bucket.

    Mr. Boom--You obviously are too enlightened to remain in this sorry excuse of a country. Please hop on the next available plane to Iran. You could probably get a professorship at Iran Tech, teaching America Bashing 101.

    Thank you, keep your head in the sand and continue the status quo. I did not distort anything about this country's history, it is the truth. Dispute me with a written record if I am wrong. You can rip on my comments as much as you want, you can't change history and history says a bunch of slave owners founded this country. If you still wish to dispute that, more power to you, it's a losing battle. If you want to follow rules that were made 3 centuries ago by men who would be reviled in today's society, that's your choice. We need change. The system that is in place is not adept to today's society.

    I should have been a criminal defense attorney so I could have defended the lowest of the low for even they the Laws and Constitution were written and upheld for! Our Constitution differs quite a bit from England's laws and customs (England doesn't have a written Constitution, it has only it's laws and customs). There are no 5th amendment protections in England. You must answer. And Iran? It's medieval---sort of like the Star Chamber except worse. As much as I complain, I would rather deal with the devil (government) that I know instead of a foreign and alien devil that I don't know.

    Boom---we live in a nation that differs quite a bit from the one in September 1787. Remember---the argument over slavery was present at that time and the argument was then tabled until 1861. Regardless, what has evolved (especially in the last 100 years) is an unprecedented expansion of personal and civil liberties unheard of in the history of man. I believe it started with male suffrage back in the 1820's under Andrew Jackson. But like all progress, it wasn't always linear and straightforward and there were setbacks like the 18th Amendment (since repealed as you guzzle your grog). A very interesting discussion indeed!
