I don't even know what to make of this case, other than it's pretty bizarre. But serious questions remain.

Short video of local newscast pretty much sums it up:

So what in the heck was a census worker doing there in the first place after 9pm at night? If that had happened to me, and someone claiming to be from the Census Bureau knocked after 9pm, I would have IMMEDIATELY grabbed my weapon, suspecting a robbery or home invasion attempt.

Another thing I don't understand is why the census worker was surprised when they had a gun pointed at them in the first place and called it in??? The first guy (who pulled the initial gun) was on private property, and had every reason to suspect foul play that late at night. So I don't understand how a crime was committed in the first place such that an officer should respond...

But perhaps even more baffling is how the cop manages to shoot the Granny 7 times, kill her, and then LEAVE her there dead for 8 full hours??? I mean WTF? Couldn't he at least call an ambulance?


In retrospect, the family would have done a whole lot better to just shoot and kill the census worker and claim they tried to force entry when refused at 9pm. This is what you get for being nice and hearing someone out: Your grandmother shot to death. Live, and learn. No more chances, and no more Mr. Nice Guy.

What I want to know, is did the grandma point the gun at the cop?

If she did, she is in the wrong.

But for the cop to just leave her there for 8 hours. DISTURBING is an understatement.

What is going on with all of these cops lately? Have they finally lost it or what? This is happening WAY too often these days.

RIP Grandma

I think the news report said she did. And if I had to guess, she probably felt the arrest was completely unwarranted, given that the worker came so late, and that her family member had every right to pull the gun on his own property. So I'll bet she got pissed, got the shotgun, and said something like "You're not taking my boy to jail over this!" And the minute she raised it towards the officer, 7 bullets flew her way.

I'll tell you one thing though. If you EVER have to shoot at an officer, empty that gun without reserve, and fire all bullets. Cause they will do the exact same to you, and that has been proven a zillion times over. They will empty their weapons into you every time. If you manage to knock him down, get a another clip or whatever you have to to make sure he (or she) is DEAD.

No chances. No more Mr. Nice Guy.

Im not one to stand up for police, but if she did in fact pull the gun on the cop, he had every right to defend himself.

I am FAR from any cop sympathizer, but even I know, you dont point the gun at the po po unless you plan to pull the trigger. As a (67?) year old, even she should have known this.

I will say this for her though, she really does or did care about her family more than I see in a lot of other families. That, in and of itself should speak volumes for this woman.

But, if someone started to point a shotgun at me, I would have done the same thing.

Much respect to her though, she stood up for her family, and I admire that more than anything.

Yeah, the cop did have the right to defend himself. But I still want to know what law gave the cop the right to arrest a person pulling a gun on their own property?

Have you seen how pushy those census workers can be? I experienced this myself when I told one interrupting what I was doing to come back. And the reason was that I had ALREADY SENT IN MY CENSUS FORMS, ALL FILLED OUT, AND ON TIME. I told the person this through the door, and said CYA, gotta run, am busy. They kept knocking harder and harder on the door until I finally came out with the "I am going to slam you" look in my eye. Luckily for both of us, that was enough, and they left.

It's not like the guy fired at the worker. In fact, nowhere has it been stated the the guy actually POINTED the gun at the worker. He may have just had it out in case. Considering the late night, unannounced appearance, I think that was reasonable.
