A man so dangerous, even after being shot at 71 times, that ambulance paramedics arent allowed to go near him...
The 911 call center notified Drexel Heights at 9:43 a.m.
A unit arrived just two minutes later at 9:45. However, deputies told rescue workers to stay put.
But paramedics waited until 10:59 a.m. Then they heard the radio call "Code 900", which meant they were no longer needed because the person was dead.
After one hour and 14 minutes, Drexel Heights indicated they were never allowed to even examine Jose .

I'm not in the US but this seems pretty drastic and obviously the wrong decision because nothing was found (not drugs anyway).
How come they went in all guns blazing? ok, he had a gun but it says that he didn't fire the weapon!!
Couldn't he get to open the door and come out with hands over his head or something? Why go hie i the cupboard?

Actually it warrants him to a search and seizure warrant and if he fights back with deadly intentions then yes death is given. Where i am from we watch the people for months and acquire tons of info from undercover officers and other informants. When we raid a house we know what is in there, amount of weapons, and location of drugs. If it is a big enough operation, you bet your a** we will get a no knock warrant. I live in MO and meth is huge here but we dont have any that have attempted to use deadly force back. Usually the suspect gives up, does his time, then is back cooking again when he gets out. I do have hope for people but very rarely do they break the cycle. I really feel for the children growing up in a drug environment.

Admit it, you'd be right there alongside your neanderthal mates firing away and if things went south, admit that you and your buds would concoct a bogus story to cover your mistake. This is not speculation; this is the way you operate and we ALL know it. I have NEVER ONCE seen a department come clean in this kind of situation. Without fail EVERY TIME, the PD says they were justified. Does not matter if it is the wrong house because all you thugs do then is say, "Gee, we thought he was going for weapon." Case closed. That is how it works and I challenge you to prove me wrong, to present here even ONE case nationally where the other cops came clean.
You sir, are a killer. You may be a "nice guy" in your ordinary dealings with others, but when push comes to shove, you'll shoot and make excuses when it turns out the man was holding a hair dryer as he stood there in a towel. Funny huh? No, not hardly and many of us remember that exact case. Your masked breathen shot down a man in cold blood because he was holding a hair dryer. Hey, better safe than sorry, right? Wrong, real training teaches how to discern threat from non-threat but you juvenile wanabe commandos are chicken sh*t and trigger happy.

The article plainly states they went in with lights and sirens. Maybe it's a lie..
Vanessa Guerena says she heard noise outside their home about 9 a.m. Thursday and woke her husband who had just gone to bed after working a 12-hour shift at the Asarco Mine, she said. There were no sirens or shouts of "police," she said.
