UH, Part II

This **** just keeps happening. Police are militarized now. Every situation is, in their minds and obviously training, a reason to use force, including deadly force. A citizen has a right to be safe in their home and has an expectation NOT TO BE SHOT when opening the door. I hope the pig who did this is charged and sentenced to jail.

"The family attorney representing a 17-year-old boy who was shot and killed by a Euharlee police officer says that the boy was holding a video game controller when he was shot opening his door."

Attorney: Teen Shot, Killed By Police Was Holding Wii Video Game Controller CBS Atlanta

Jail? These type of police need to be executed.

well, its not Florida, so the police officer will probably be in serious trouble, as she should be.

Though from reading the article, sounds like a horrible mistake from eyewitness accounts of the officers behavior immediately after.

What a terrible accident

Is it clearly wrong to have a gun in your hand when you open your door? I don't think it is even a misdemeanor and not nearly a hanging offense.


I think there is absolutely no reasonable explanation for this shooting.

Wonder if they called the guy and requested that he turn himself in. Seems like it could save a lot of pain.

You would be surprised how some courts have interpreted it. Brandishing can get you, and even when the statutes condition with "go about" armed, some courts have found that it is not even necessary to leave your home to be convicted of such. I'd have to google to link you but I am sure I have seen this.
