    More awesomeness by the police:

    The sheriff’s deputies burst through the back door about 11 p.m. on Sept. 24 and, seeing David Hooks holding the weapon, fired 16 shots – killing the 59-year-old grandfather.

    Authorities said Hooks met deputies at the door and pointed his weapon aggressively at officers as they announced themselves.

    But Teresa Hooks said the officers did not knock and never identified themselves as law enforcement, and her attorney said David Hooks was killed behind a wall in the home — not at the door.

    Deputies were executing a search warrant as part of a drug investigation based on a tip from one of the burglars accused of stealing a vehicle from Hooks.

    The night before the raid, the search warrant stated, Rodney Garrett told investigators he stole a plastic bag from a pickup parked outside the Hooks home, believing it contained cash.

    He also stole firearms and a set of digital scales, investigators said.

    Garrett then stole a Lincoln Aviator from the Hooks home and drove the SUV to Dublin, investigators said, where he discovered the bag contained methamphetamine – not money.

    The man told police he “became scared for his safety” and turned himself in to authorities, the TV station reported.

    Garrett has since been arrested on burglary, theft of a motor vehicle, and other charges.

    An attorney for Teresa Hooks said the burglary suspect’s claims shouldn’t have been enough to justify a search warrant, and he noted that no drugs or other illegal items were found at the couple’s home.

    He also questioned the wisdom of serving search warrants to late at night.

    “That search of some 44 hours conducted by numerous agents of the (Georgia Bureau of Investigation) resulted in not one item of contraband being found,” said attorney Mitchell Shook. “He was not a drug user or a drug dealer.”

    A detective noted in the warrant application that he knew Hooks and his home address from a previous investigation, claiming a suspect told authorities that he supplied meth to Hooks for resale.

    Shook said that case was investigated in 2009, but neither the attorney nor sheriff’s deputies have said whether Hooks was charged.

    Hooks owned a construction company that worked on military bases, Shook said, which required background check clearance by state and federal authorities – including the Department of Homeland Security and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.

    “This is not a person who needs to be involved in criminal activity for financial gain,” Shook said. “He did very well financially.”

    The slain man’s family has asked Sheriff Bill Harrell to suspend all the deputies who took part in the raid until the shooting death has been investigated.

    Video just released from 2012 of Milton Hall, a mentally disabled/ill man, getting shot 45 times by 8 policemen while he was holding a penknife.

    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    These morons were obviously expertly trained in the valuable craft of escalation.

    Not only do the police abuse their power through violence and civil forfeiture, they'll even violate your privacy, stealing photos from your cell phone if they can get their hands on it.

    After an automobile crash, a young woman suspected of drunk driving was getting checked out for injuries. A California Highway Patrol officer, five-year veteran Sean Harrington, had her cell phone. He found a photo of her in a bikini. So he allegedly sent the image to his own phone, and then, though already guilty of criminal conduct, he forwarded the image to another California Highway Patrol officer. "Taken from the phone of my 10-15x while she's in X-rays," he texted. "Enjoy buddy!!!"

    The colleague upbraided him for violating a citizen's privacy, contacted a commanding officer, and arranged for Harrington's arrest on felony charges. I kid, of course. The colleague actually complained that the photo wasn't more explicit.

    "No ****ing nudes?" Officer Robert Hazelwood allegedly replied. Officer Dion Simmons received the bikini photo too. "Nice," he allegedly replied. "Hahahaaaa." Harrington told him, "Just rerun a favor down the road buddy. "
    California Can't Police Its Own Cops Stealing Nude Photos of Women - The Atlantic

    I wonder how many women have nudes photos of themselves on the internet because a police officer stole it from their phone. It wouldn't surprise me if that number was in the tens of thousands.

    How long until someone comes along and says "this is just a few bad apples"?

    The only reason this officer is being prosecuted is because the woman caught him, not because his fellow officers turned him in. And according to this officer "everyone is doing it" and they've been doing it for years. If you're a woman, make sure your phone is password protected and do NOT give the officer the password. If the officer asks for the password, demand a warrant. If you give up the password, you know the first thing he's going to do is look through your phone for nude photos.

    Haven't posted any cop shoots dog stories. In my opinion a lot of those shootings are justified. This isn't one of them given the dog's breed (lab), demeanor, and the police "investigation" afterward that didn't take a statement from the witnesses (one actually comments on the story). Oh, did I mention this was a K9 officer???

    That cop is a piece of shit. A lab runs up to him to say hi and he shoots it? That's evil. He's exactly the type of person who should be banned from ever owning a firearm because he's clearly too stupid to use one responsibly. I wouldn't be against euthanizing that cop the same way we handle rabid dogs.

    Beorn, you think a lot of cop/dog shootings are justified? What are you basing this on? That they claim every dog is a pit bull? I think the fact that the police murder so many dogs is the thing that will actually get the general public to turn against them. People always blame the victim of police shootings when they are human, but the same isn't true for dogs.

    This happened several years ago, but police killed the dogs of the mayor of Berwyn Heights, Maryland.

    The police of Columbia, Missouri love to kill dogs. It's their thing.





    There are many more videos out there. You might view your pet as part of your family, but the police don't. They could not care less about the impact of these murders.
