I don't post much here, but I spend a lot of time on another forum called ArcheryTalk. A member there was good friends with the late Brett Pace. Apparently, there is much more to this story than meets the eye, and the local police force there is quite corrupt. Some other details to the story that were published in other articles on this subject include:
Guns were found in his bedroom closet, not laying all over the house.
After shooting, they left him lay, shot, on the floor for roughly 30 minutes before even calling for an ambulance. Had they called, its possible he would have survived the wounds. He was incapacitated, why not call an ambulance? When they are in a high speed chase, and the perp crashes, they don't just let him lay there and die, they call an ambulance to the scene.
I will inform him of this thread so he can come offer his opinions... The above information is only being relayed from other articles I've read on the subject. While I agree, it is Pace's fault he was in the situation of having a No-Knock warrant executed on his home due to the posession of fire arms, I feel the shooting was DEFINITELY unjustified if he was truly unarmed, and I've read NOTHING that indicates otherwise.
I'll let the guy know. I'm sure he'll call himself "The Hood" if he chooses to respond. He's a little unique in is word usage, but I think he'll get his points across....
You guys are only seeing one piece of the pie with this article, that I assure you....
