A Georgia SWAT team, acting on a tip from a drug addict, killed a 59-year-old grandfather and businessman in his home while executing a warrant. The informant had stolen a car from the property a few days before.

It was just before 11 p.m. on September 24 in East Dublin, Ga., and David Hooks was asleep. His wife, Teresa, was in her craft room. Their home had been burglarized two days before, and an SUV stolen. Teresa heard a car drive fast up the driveway, and she looked out the window, according to the family’s attorney.

“She saw several men all in black and camo with hoods on,” lawyer Mitch Shook told the Macon Telegraph. “She ran downstairs, woke David and said, ‘The burglars are back’.”

  1. I think, for the good of all, these cops should check out an Ebola apartment. It would raise the country's average IQ.

  2. The people conducting these fatal no-knock raids will continue to do so until they are forced to stop, and the pressure will not come from within. That the communities in which these raids happen are not storming their city halls demanding accountability guarantees that the raids will continue.

  4. All of these officers should be charged with murder and sent to trial. Period!

    1. Definitely and they also should be held liable for damages which they would have to pay, not the taxpayers.

  5. Not only do we need to shoot back, but start using citizen Grand Juries and keep pushing to make these thugs responsible for their actions and also take away a informants statement for justification for warrants

  6. You would think that at least some would resign in remorse.

    1. The officers all made it home safe to their families that night. That's the most important thing, right?

    3. Yeah they like their fiat money check too much for that, they love the sound of the tinkle of Judas silver in their pockets. Mr Brock, a storm is coming and they have no idea of what fury will partake them...
