I was just about to post this. Crazy.
Good for the grand jury. What I don't understand is that the article claims that they had no warrant. So why aren't the possession charges dropped?
I know the SCOTUS ruled that cops can enter without a warrant if they smell narcotics, but this was a planned raid.
He killed a cop,this may be part of a deal or something to get it done quickly.
We live in a police state. Wake up.
Idk man, it's a whole fucked up situation.
the only thing I can think of, is the pot and gun "technically" were found during the search investigating the homicide.
Also, kudos to the deputies for not emptying their mags on Magee after he dropped Sowders. That must have taken a lot of restraint.
Kick in my door, unannounced and you too will be met with a barrage of bullets. 308 rounds to be exact.
The old fatal funnel at work again. Good on the Jury for seeing the right side of this one.
No warrant = you lose copper. Our rights at work. Thanks for playing.
Your av looks very familiar. Chambering profile? Remington?
The SCOTUS has also ruled that evidence collected during a botched raid (wrong house) can be admissible in court...so if cops raid the wrong home and find, say, child porn, they can make an arrest. But it still required that there be an actual warrant.
This almost seems like a robbery gone wrong.
Close! Kalashnikov (AK47) bolt face.
Oh sorry..I misread that. That makes a lot of sense.
It looked so familiar.
Reminds me of the movie Training Day
I wonder how often that shit happens in real life.
No knock raids are about preventing evidence (drugs and only drugs) from being destroyed, at the expense of our Constitutional rights. Oh yeah, and terrorizing the citizenry. No knocks are almost always drug arrests. Even some of the most violent criminals are arrested by simply walking up to them and telling them they're under arrest if 'preserving' drug evidence is not involved. Whitey Bulger. Directly and indirectly responsible for dozens of murders. A little long in the tooth, but a dangerous and cold blooded killer. The agents asked Whitey's apartment manager about his patterns, were told that he always did a certain activity at a certain time. The super was right. The agents simply walked up to him and arrested him. No flash grenades, no attack dogs, no tasers. The battering ram and the no knock is to keep the suspect from flushing the pills/grass/whatever down the commode. Suspects, their dogs, their family members are shot all the time in these types of raids. This time the cops got reeled in by their own catch.
I believe it was right outside of Seattle where cops used armed SWAT officers and flashbangs to serve a subpoena. The guy who was raided was "linked" to some anti-G8 group. He wasn't arrested. He wasn't charged with any crime. It was just a subpoena.
Jesus, that's worse yet. This country is asleep. We had better wake up.
That's also the same town that had the no protest zones.
