I Think the Lesson May Be That You Shouldn’t Call 911 in Georgia

The recent case of where cops went to the wrong house and did bad things to the homeowner is not the first time something like this happened. Wrong-house shooting: Not the first time a 911 call puts homeowner in peril | www.ajc.com

Of the Georgians fatally shot by police since 2010, more than a third were killed at home, according to an investigation by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Channel 2 Action News.

One guy called 911. He got shot. One guy went to the door with a video game controller in his hand. He was killed. Cops entered the house of a mentally unstable woman without a warrant and killed her.

DeKalb seems to be where several of these have happened. Never fear. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is launching an independent investigation. Cops are still investigating cops. I wonder if they are all in the same union.
