Sheriff’s deputies who failed to identify themselves when knocking on a man’s door at 1:30AM at night immediately shot and killed the homeowner after he allegedly opened his door with a gun in hand.
The man who was murdered, 26-year-old Andrew Lee Scott, was described by neighbors as a good person and “very nice guy.”
The deputies realized later they got the wrong house, but for good measure they searched the man’s apartment and found drugs, which apparently justifies their murdering him randomly.
The police are entirely unapologetic. Lt. John Herrell said of the incident, “The bottom line is, you point a gun at a deputy sheriff or police office, you’re going to get shot.”
For police who refuse to identify themselves to point their guns at you is A-OK, yet for you to do the same in self-defense is grounds for summary execution.
In contrast with this gang of criminals, a 92-year-old Toledo woman who found herself in the same situation just the other day actually shot an officer in the side of his head, yet the Toledo police chose not to press any charges against her, as Police Sgt. Joe Heffernan said, “I don’t think it meets all the culpability standards for felonious assault on a police officer.”
Indeed, 26-year-old Andrew Lee Scott had every right to open his door fully armed, and, at least if he was in a state where the Castle Doctrine was recognized, he may have even had the right to use deadly force in defending himself from the police’s illegal armed invasion.
