Bad warrant, I get that and the smile is going to come down as it should.

However, if this couple were law-abiding and had nothing to hide, they typically aren't going to be on the radar screen of the narcs in a huge metro like Houston.  Have there been any reliable accounts of who instigated the shooting?


"Immediately upon breaching the door," Acevedo said on Monday, "the officers came under fire from one or two suspects inside the house." But as he revealed during a press conference the next day, it was actually the police who fired first, killing what he described as "a very large pit bull that charged at that officer."  https://reason.com/blog/2019/01/30/the-cops-were-the-aggressors-in-this-wee




A law traditionally used to get cops off the hook could end up putting a narcotics officer who lied about deadly drug raid behind bars

“If you commit one felony, in this case, aggravated perjury, or tampering with a government document, and in the course of, or in furtherance of the commission of that first felony, you engage in conduct that is clearly dangerous to human life, and somebody dies, that’s felony murder."

“If he knew that that warrant had the force and effect of last week’s losing lotto ticket, and he’s at the front door getting ready to achieve entry, he’s no longer a cop. He’s a home invader with a badge and a gun.”

Houston police to end use of no-knock warrants, chief says
https://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/article/Houston-police-to-end-use-of-no-knock-warrants-13626158.php

The officer accused of falsifying the no-knock warrant for the home invasion that killed Dennis Tuttle and Rhogena Nicholas retired last Friday, will be collecting pension.

Too many similarities to an Oklahoma case:

119 Dismissed Cases Later, a Crooked Cop Was Arrested for Planting Drugs During Routine Traffic Stops

There did not appear to be any rhyme or reason to the drivers deputy Zachary Wester singled out for false arrests on drug possession. Some were parents with a diaper bag in the back seat. Others were young men and women, some crying as they insisted they had never touched drugs, let alone meth, in their lives.

Wester, who was fired last September, was arrested Wednesday and charged with 52 counts of racketeering, false imprisonment, official misconduct, fabricating evidence and possession of controlled substances, among other charges. He’s accused of indiscriminately targeting innocent drivers and hauling them off to jail after planting meth or marijuana in their vehicles while feigning a “search."

“Wester circumvented JCSO’s body camera policy and tailored his recordings to conceal his criminal activity.”
