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!

"cop breaks and enters with state approval, gets his ass shot"

brah………………. BRUV……………………..

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.

Oh no stand your ground for the homie right???? NO STAND YOUR GROUND FOR THE HOMIE RIGHT????!????!!!!

When I see people manifesting sexual ambiguity or scarifying themselves, or showing a lot of flesh, or dancing to syncopated music, or getting loaded I applaud all of this because it is an impulse to return to what is felt by the body, what is authentic, what is archaic. And when you tease apart these archaic impulses at the very centre of them is the desire to return to a world of magical empowerment of feeling, and at the very centre of that impulse is the shaman…stoned, intoxicated on plants, speaking with the spirit helpers, dancing in the moonlight. Vivifying and evoking a world of conscious living mystery. That’s what the world is. The world is not an unsolved problem for scientists and sociologists. The world is a living mystery…our birth, our death, out being in the moment…these are mysteries, they are doorways opening up to unimaginable vistas of self-exploration, empowerment and hope for the human enterprise, and our culture has killed that. It has taken it away from us and made us consumers of shoddy products and shoddier ideals. We have to get away from that and the way to do that is by a return to the authentic experience of the body, and that means sexually empowering ourselves, getting loaded, exploring the mind as a tool for personal and social transformation. The hour is late. The clock is ticking. We are the inheritors of millions of years of successfully lived lives and adaptations to changing conditions in the natural world. Now the challenge passes to us, the living, that the yet to be born may have a place to put their feet and a sky to walk under. And that is what the psychedelic experience is about…empowering and building a future that honours the past, honours the planet and honours the power of human imagination. There is nothing as powerful and as capable of transforming itself and the planet as the human imagination…the tools are there, the path is known, you simply have to turn your back on a culture that has gone sterile and dead and get with the program!

This was how the myth of Black criminality started, for the record. After the abolition of slavery, a lot of states made laws targeting Black people specifically, and then put them on chain gangs to get free labor from them.

Oh, and the US is still disproportionately incarcerating Black people and private prisons are making huge amounts off them.

Yeah, I believe that black people are twice as likely to be arrested and convicted for committing the same crimes as a white person. Draw your own conclusions.

Reblogging this because everytime in real life I’ve said Slavery didn’t really end I’ve been dismissed as crazy.

I’ll reblog this every time it comes up on my dash. People need to know!

All of this.

Additionally, in Britain, three times as likely to be arrested.

Six times as likely for a drug offence.
