No, the family had already been secured downstairs before the officers went upstairs to find the woman alone in her room pointing a gun at them.
Joab, you know
that she was "pointing a gun at them" how
It's funny how you claim people rush to judgment to condemn the cops, and then you make "factual" statements that at this point have not been proved true or
that the woman was pointing a gun at the police. Has that been established by an unimpeachable, irrefutable source?
Now, yes, there seem to be some rather hinkey goings-on with both
sides in this case. I find plenty of reason to doubt whether the family was upstanding citizens. If it is true -- and forensic evidence demonstrates it -- that the woman was shot a third time after having already collapsed, then that should go toward a wrongful death finding. After all, if any of us shot an intruder in our homes twice, and then plugged him a third and final time once he was face-down on the floor, for example, we would not be sleeping at home for many more nights, that's for sure.
I would like to see more information about how the cops came to suspect drug activity in this home;
why "trace" evidence of drugs out where any member of the public can tamper with it is reason enough for a warrant;
why the cops could not arrest the couple outside their home in a normal manner, rather than storming a home where children were present.
