Outrage as police shoot and kill the wrong man in hunt for attempted murder suspect, after showing up unannounced in the middle of the night

Via Don

An innocent man was shot dead by police after deputies mistook him for an attempted murder suspect.

Lake County, Florida officers showed up at the Blueberry Hill apartment of Andrew Scott at around 1.30am on Sunday

Roused from his bed in the middle of the night by an unknown presence at his property, Andrew Scott answered the door holding a gun.

Officers had not announced who they were because they did not want Linkthe man they thought was inside, Jonathan Brown, to escape.

sheriff's spokesman Lt. John Herrell said their silence was 'tactically advantageous'.

On seeing that Scott was armed officers immediately opened fire with a shower of bullets that killed the 26-year-old and left several holes in his front door.

  4. The boys with deadly toys will be cleared of all wrong doing, as they followed all dept. policies. They'll be given paid time off (paid vacation) to get it outta their system. Meanwhile the murdered innocent fella will be forgotten by all but his family and close friends.
    Boys in Blue = Murder Inc. (Trying not to paint with to broad a brush, but..... )

  5. Yep, murderers.

    Their lives are more valuable than the lives of the people whom they are sworn to "protect and serve".
