Cops Shot Innocent Man in Bed 16 times

Dated.


Thirty-year-old Dustin Theoharis in Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, recovering from his twelfth surgery -  this one to reconstruct his jaw.  It’s unlikely he will ever fully recover from the barrage of bullets fired by police on Feb. 11, 2011.  His attorney, Erik Heipt said that Theoharis suffered "a broken shoulder, 2 broken arms, broken legs, he had a compression fracture to his spine, damage to his liver and spleen.”

Theoharis wasn't the guy police were after. The King County Sheriff's deputy and Washington Department of Corrections officer who shot him were at the house to arrest a man who’d violated his parole.  But in a search of the house after the shooting, they surprised Theoharis in the basement room he was renting.

Cole Harrison, who was at the house, described it this way:  "They (the officers) rushed into that room like they were going to get somebody.  I mean they rushed down there and then all of a sudden. Boom, boom, boom, boom.”

It’s estimated that the two officers fired more than 20 bullets; 16 hit Theoharis, who was lying in bed.  The officers said they thought Theoharis was reaching for a gun.  They later told investigators they weren’t sure how many bullets they fired.

"I thought he was going to try to kill us, there is no greater level of threat,” King County Deputy Aaron Thompson told investigators during an interview months after the shooting.

Theoharis didn’t have any weapons, but both the Sheriff’s Office and the Department of Corrections ruled the shooting justified and in compliance with policy.

  1. So the union decides when and how the officers involved give statements after they nearly murdered an innocent man? Well, at least the officers were able to get home safely that night. Fuckers.

  3. They thought he was going to try and kill them? If he was going to try and kill them, they would have been met with heavy, fast and concentrated fire upon their descent into his basement bedroom. The "Ooops, yeah uh, we're real sorry bout' that Sir, but you are not the guy we were looking for.." answer will not work for me. I've made my mind up on how my end will come and I've felt that way since the day I took the Oath. It will not be with empty hands. That's all I got to say about that...

  5. Vigilante justice I agree. It's past time. I've wrote on it here before. But that's what happens to a country as it is dying from within. Loss of law and order, loss of self-awareness and identity as a nation. Loss of morals among many other things, but the greatest loss is the loss of God, and God ain't been with America in many years. Ya'll live in a fantasy land. The Empire of the united States is in its' death throes, and it will kill anyone who happens in its' way, man or another country. The Roman Empire went almost identical...

  6. Ditto on Anonymous and Rich T.
    Take names and go on the hunt.
    IT IS NO WONDER THAT PEOPLE ARE AFRAID OF AND DO NOT TRUST COPS.
    THEY JUST TAKE ORDERS. DON'T KNOW ABOUT THE CORRECTIONS OFFICER WHEN IT COMES TO THE OATH, BUT A SHERIFF OF ALL LEO'S SWEARS AN OATH TO THE CONSTITUTION.
    Hope the victim's atty. nails them good; real good. When this nation fails, there will be boys in blue and kaki that had better be running for the woods.
