  •  It was a freaking SEARCH warrant. (7+ / 0-)

    At least try to get the story straight before you consistently defend this outrageous killing. They had authority to SEARCH his house (if they had the right house and the warrant was backed by true, not invented, evidence), not to arrest him. So, your  entire premise is off from the start. Ok?

    It was not an arrest warrant, it was a search warrant, which meant there was not probable cause to arrest him yet, if ever.

    At least you could get the undisputed facts right:  Search warrant.  Not arrest warrant.

    Investigation?  You really need that to know that being shot 60 times in your own home is an outrage?  That 71 shots blindly into a house with a man, woman and toddler is obscene? The Sheriff's department has already admitted that they lied, saying he fired at them.  Later, it was revealed his weapon was on safety. He never fired. Period. End of story.  They fired 71 times. What kind of stupid ass response is that?

    The very fact that 71 shots were fired shows that the sheriff's deputies were out of control. Period. End of Story.

    Before you think I don't know what I'm talking about, I am a former Federal law enforcement officer. I've been trained in such things. I have conducted searches, arrests, armed interventions.

    This shooting is disgusting and extremely unprofessional.  IF shooting was necessary, CONTROLLED shooting was all that was called for.  Not wild-assed 71 shots. That is INSANE! It is flat out murder. And I'd testify to that any day of the week.
