Because Shooting a Homeowner Thru the Window of His Home is SOP

Because that is just how the cops work. Deputy who shot SC homeowner through front window cleared by internal affairs.

The Sheriff’s Office’s Officer of Professional Standards conducted an internal investigation to see if Deputy Kevin Azzara violated any written policies during the incident. The investigation concluded and found that no agency policies were violated, spokesman Lt. Ryan Flood said Wednesday.

Because shooting a homeowner, in his own home, without announcing you’re police, because at midnight, that homeowner is armed when he comes to the door is just good police work. Or something.

I said that the cop would face no repercussions.

Shoot First, Ask Questions Later, Then Lie About It

Law enforcement in the 21st Century. Upstate man shot by Greenville County deputy through own front door, attorney says. (There is a video at the site that won’t shut up. You’ve been warned.)

They guy was in his own home. A cop came to the door, but did not identify himself. The homeowner was armed. It was “just before midnight,” so being armed was a reasonable thing to do. The deputy shot him 4 times through the door sidelight. Then the deputy claimed (or the Sheriff’s dept. claimed) that the homeowner opened the door and pointed a gun at the cop. Body cam video refutes that, and the “statement” to that effect has been removed from the Sheriff’s F*c*book page.

Welcome to the Police State, where there will be no consequences for this guy. No fallout from the Sheriff lying about what happened. Though they are being sued.

And this was all in response to a “medical alert.” Someone needs to show the police how to make a phone call.

People You Know Can Be a Threat

Case in point. Man shoots former stepson who broke into his trailer in Woodruff, deputies say.

Lt. Kevin Bobo, with the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office said the homeowner called 911 and said he had shot an unknown man who had broken into his trailer.

The man ran away from the home and was found on a dirt road with a single gunshot wound to his shoulder area, Bobo said.

He apparently broke in with the intent to assault the homeowner for past grievances.

The Solicitor’s Office concluded the homeowner was justified in his actions. Williams was charged with burglary and assault and battery, Bobo said.

Self-defense is a human-right.

Yet Another Failure of the Victim-selection Process

If you break into homes, you will eventually find an armed homeowner. Anderson County Coroner working to identify man fatally shot by Williamston homeowner.

Sgt. J.T. Foster of the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office said Monday morning that preliminary information indicates that the man was shot as he attempted to break into a home on Boiter Road. Investigators have not disclosed the name of the homeowner who shot him. No charges have been filed in the case as of Monday morning.

Self-defense is a human-right.

You Say That Like It’s a Bad Thing

The Left always says that you’re more likely to shoot someone you know. ACSO: Argument between homeowner and stepson ends in shots fired, incident still under investigation

The creepy neighbor. The co-worker turned stalker. The crazy ex-girlfriend or ex-boyfriend. Whoever. You usually (not always) know the people who are a problem in your life.

An older male subject had asked his stepson to leave the home several times, the stepson did not comply, he became more aggressive toward the homeowner, who felt he had no other choice then to fire at the son, deputies say.

The case is still under investigation, but you have the right to defend yourself in your own home, even if you know the person who is a threat. Even if you’re related in some way.

Yet Another Failure of the Victim-selection Process

And the determination of self-defense was made fairly quickly. Police: No charges filed in fatal Walhalla shooting, incident ruled self defense.

Cops found a man shot in a home.

Police said a full investigation was launched and investigators and the solicitor’s office determined the shooting was a case of self-defense.

Self-defense is a human-right.

Another Breakdown of the Victim-selection Process

South Carolina has been fairly active on the self-defense front lately. Fatal North Charleston shooting may have been self-defense, officials say.

“Investigators believe the shooting may have been a result of the deceased victim attempting to rob a male subject and gunfire being exchanged between the two,” Pryor [a North Charleston police spokesman] said.

The investigation is ongoing, but self-defense is a human-right.
