A Texas man is under arrest after gunning down a SWAT team member as the officer quietly tried to climb in through the apartment’s window during predawn hours.
Police State USAreports that a resident fatally shot Detective Charles “Chuck” Dinwiddie as the officer climbed in through a ground level window as part of a “no knock” raid. The officers were there due to suspicion that residents were in possession of controlled substances.
Upon hearing a noise, resident Marvin Louis Guy, 50, opened fire on the unidentified officers, shooting three others as well, although only one fatally.
Guy is currently being held on capital murder charges in connection with Dinwiddie’s death, even though it’s unclear how Guy was supposed to know that the men crawling in through the window were police officers since they hadn’t identified themselves.
The evidence sheet lists a laptop, a safe, a pistol, and a glass pipe, but no drugs were found. Given the evidence, why did police deem it necessary to seek a “no knock” warrant and why did a judge sign off on it?
Very little is known about Mr. Guy, but Dinwiddie left behind two children, all because his SWAT team went creeping into a home where the residents didn’t even have any drugs. Is that the best use of law enforcement tax dollars?
Guy’s bond has been set at $3 million dollars.
Thank you lieutenantnorals!
this happened in Texas where it is perfectly legal to shoot and kill someone who is breaking into your home
Literally everybody knows that in Texas you can open fire on someone who comes onto your property without permission. What in the hell did they expect??
Where the NRA at? In the largest pro-gun state of Texass, those second amendment rights only apply if you’re white.
What also gets me is CAPITAL MURDER charges.
Capital murder denotes premeditation, meaning that for this to be capital murder, this man would have had to have planned it out.
How can you plan ahead to kill someone who’s coming through your window while you’re sitting there minding your own business? If a guy dressed like a storm trooper hopped through my window I would probably shoot them too because people don’t typically enter homes through the window with any sort of legitimate reason (especially dressed like they’re going to war).
He was defending his property from what he perceived (quite rightly so) as a threat. Anyone could imagine that shooting someone breaking and entering into one’s home is more a split-second decision than anything else. There’s no room for premeditation. We’re so quick to defend gun ownership when it’s a white person behind the trigger but God help you if you aren’t white and find gun ownership to be right for you and your life. He isn’t being held on capital murder charges because he committed what would constitute a capital murder, he’s being held on the highest of murder charges because he was an African American exercising his American (and Texan!) right to use firearms to defend his home and property.How can you plan ahead to kill someone who’s coming through your window while you’re sitting there minding your own business?
allow me to answer that for you: because he’s a black man living in america

So I had ordered a lion statuette for a Pride award but something went wrong somewhere down the line and when it arrived it had only the rear end of the lion.
It was a catastrophe.
OH FOR FUCKS SAKE
took me a second to get it
you don’t realise how much tumblr has changed your view on things until you spend time with friends who don’t have tumblr and they say something and you’re just like
seriously though, imagine if commercials for “men’s” razors staunchly, fearfully avoided ever showing a beard or stubble or any trace of facial hair whatsoever, as if made in a bizarre and inexplicable alternate universe in which the thing their product exists to groom doesn’t exist
just dudes grinnin’ coyly as they mime running razors over their baby-bottom smooth jawlines, eyes glazed over, not knowing what it is they do, or why, knowing merely that they must
