A Texas man is under arrest after gunning down a SWAT team member as the officer quietly tried to climb in through the apartment’s window during predawn hours.
Police State USAreports that a resident fatally shot Detective Charles “Chuck” Dinwiddie as the officer climbed in through a ground level window as part of a “no knock” raid. The officers were there due to suspicion that residents were in possession of controlled substances.
Upon hearing a noise, resident Marvin Louis Guy, 50, opened fire on the unidentified officers, shooting three others as well, although only one fatally.
Guy is currently being held on capital murder charges in connection with Dinwiddie’s death, even though it’s unclear how Guy was supposed to know that the men crawling in through the window were police officers since they hadn’t identified themselves.
The evidence sheet lists a laptop, a safe, a pistol, and a glass pipe, but no drugs were found. Given the evidence, why did police deem it necessary to seek a “no knock” warrant and why did a judge sign off on it?
Very little is known about Mr. Guy, but Dinwiddie left behind two children, all because his SWAT team went creeping into a home where the residents didn’t even have any drugs. Is that the best use of law enforcement tax dollars?
Guy’s bond has been set at $3 million dollars.
Thank you lieutenantnorals!
way more important than mike brown tbh
I won’t be surprised when he gets the death penalty.
This is the problem with “no knock” warrants. You have the right to defend yourself when someone breaks into your home unannounced.
Unless it’s a cop.
Why no knock warrants exist for low level crimes will never make sense to me. It puts literally everyone involved in extreme danger, from the officers entering, to the “suspect” and everyone in between, including any children in the house. This type of warrant got a man killed for nothing, and after “due process” we’re likely to see another man die for nothing.
Even ignoring the Fourth Amendment, these only put cops in danger because citizens don’t know until after the fact if it’s a cop or robber. As well as the citizen because he’s going to be approaching a cop with a weapon out.
I don’t know for what pairing or whatever
but a fic where person a has been in a car accident and is in physical therapy and the doctor recommends they take some dance lessons so they go to person b’s classes
and at first person a is a little embarrassed because person b is very good looking and very talented and they just feel so slow then how they used to be so they resist any feelings
but person b is very patient and kind and its a slow burn falling in love while healing fic
we as a society need to start talking about abusive friendships, bc those exist and seem to be really common
and most people in them dont know how do deal w the abuse bc its normally emotional abuse which.gets delegitimized, and its a platonic relationship and not a romo or sexual one, so it gets delegitimized for that too
A saltire was burned today. I’m still disgusted. People have been stabbed and beaten today. Nazi salutes were thrown infront of a war memorial today. Young people have had abuse hurled at them left and right. Do not ignore this. Do not ignore what’s happening in Glasgow tonight.
if you’re not gaelic or not residing in scotland it is your duty to make this blow up.
