I'm sure he'll get paid leave and then a slap on the wrist unfortunately.
I am going to add some info, but I am going to make this declaration up front so certain people dont go down the road of unconciditional support ofr
You would be correct. If a person who has access and control to the property, they can allow Law Enforcement in without a warrant. If a person insdie
the house occupies a room and takes the measures of making it clear people need to seek permission to enter the room (IE keeping bedroom door closed /
locked etc) then a warrant would be needed IF the officers are wanting to search the room for something specific.
A warrant is needed for a specific search. It is not needed when responding to a 911 call, since at that part its an investigation. Because the call
came from a person who was part of the disturbance, the officers were within the law by entering.
What occured from that point on seems to be the problem. I will point out that the OP really needs to take the time when writing out what occured. In
your zeal to post this, you left out a LOT of information and you make it sound like something that did not occur.
You state the officers entered, confronted the suspect, pulled their gun, shot the dog and then killed the suspect all within the same actions and
this is FALSE. Your own source video also contradicts what you typed. So would you please edit your comments to reflect what actually occured, and not
They talk about an altercation that occured inside, and the guy being tasered twice. I am curious what prompted those actions.
As far as the dog being shot, was the dog aggressive towards the officers? What kind of dog was it? Is it trained to attack based on verbal commands?
As far as the suspect being shot and killed, I am curious to see what type of justification the officer used to make that decision. The response from
his partner also adds a shadow of misbehavior on the part of the other officer. We are getting the families side of the story, and so far only have
the typical under investigation from the Police Department.
Before I decide, I would like to see all of the events from start to finish, from all parties involved to see how it came down to the suspect being
shot and killed. If its determined the officer violated the law, then by all means, charge him and send him to jail.
Until then though, there is some key information missing.
Since this involved a domestic, there would be no need for a warrant to either enter the property or any rooms within.
