You posted an Arizona Daily Star article dated May 6, authored by Fernanda Echavarri and Jamar Younger; where they claim that he fired at the officers.
Guerena fired his AR-15 rifle at the deputies, who were holding up shields, Ogan said.
At least one of the shields was struck by gunfire, he said.
Article 1; May 6
However, in another article posted May 11, authored by Fernanda Echavarri once again, a revision was made, it seems.
"The suspect said, 'I've got something for you,' when he saw them," O'Connor said. Guerena's wife denied he said that.
Deputies began shooting.
A deputy's bullet struck the side of the doorway, causing chips of wood to fall on his shield. That prompted some members of the team to think the deputy had been shot, O'Connor said.
Article 2, May 11
So the first article is sided with a justified use of force. Then a few days later, and the story completely changes, to the point where no mention is made of Jose firing at the officers. Just a verbal provocation and a clear indication that the team was confused about flying debris, from their own rounds striking the doorway.
So what's going on here?

You are failing to realize that dealing drugs alone did not get him killed. It was when they executed the search warrant and he was holding a weapon that got him killed.

Now this is an ignorant, hate-filled, statement to make.
Because he was in a war, he deserved to die?
Honestly, do you really believe that this was deserved retribution?
Mods, these type of posts don't deserve space in the forums.
