Read here. Yes, Chief Billy Weeks. Yes, yes, officers Shedran and Day were at a fault. The moment they put on those uniforms and picked up those guns and descended on the Adams’ home to perform a “Drug Raid.”
Police admitted their mistake, saying faulty information from a drug informant contributed to the death of John Adams Wednesday night. They intended to raid the home next door.
Hold on a second here, you lying POS. In one breath, it’s the fault of a drug informant for giving faulty information. In the next, if the reporter is getting it right, you intended to raid the home next door. So which is it? Did you raid the house the informant told you about, which turned out to be incorrect? Or did he give you the correct information, but you got the wrong house? And what’s this with trusting informants without question and without verification? This is how swatting happens and it is entirely the fault of the SWAT team itself if an innocent person gets killed in those situations (but, yes, the person who falsely reported the crime should be prosecuted as well).
Ironwill III is exactly right. I don’t care if he used a bazooka. It was justified. The thugs with guns and badges were the aggressors.
Until the militarization of police departments is reversed and they start actually following the Peelian Principles, they are setting themselves up as enemies of the people.
Put down the select fire rifles, park the Bearcats, and stop treating this as a war zone. Collateral damage due to your mistakes is NOT acceptable. Go read one former cop’s take on that.
I’d rather take my chances with violent drug dealers, gang bangers, and common criminals whom I’ll be exonerated for killing in self defense (and may have a better chance of succeeding due to their lack of SWAT training), rather than killers of the wrong people due to mistakes with state sanction, to boot.
Stay Dangerous, My Friends
Update:Kudos to the widow: “”They need to get rid of those men, boys with toys,” said Adams’ 70-year-old widow, Loraine.”
