On Friday, May 9, 2014, just after 5:30am in Killeen, Texas, Marvin Louis Guy was the target of a no knock raid.

The officers were looking for drugs, yet none were found in the home.  There was some questionable paraphernalia, but nothing indicative of drug dealing- or anything damning enough for a reasonable person to feel the need to take an officers life.

Likely alarmed by the men climbing through his windows at 5:30 in the morning, Guy and his wife sought to protect themselves and their property and fired on the intruders – in self defense.

Dinwiddie, along with three other officers were shot while attempting to breach the windows to the home, according to the department’s press release.

Since the shooting occurred during the break in, a reasonable person would assume they had not yet identified themselves as police officers.  How on earth is this not self defense?

Prosecutors are now seeking the death penalty against Guy. He is charged with capital murder in Dinwiddie’s death, as well as three counts of attempted capital murder for firing on the other officers during the shootout, injuring one other officer. Body armor protected others who were hit.

This is wrong on so many levels… Everything he wanted to do is to save himself, his pregnant woman and their property. That’s what the 2nd amendment was created for. But he’s a black man, and if he had been white NRA supporters would be in the streets protesting his 2nd amendment rights and his right to defend his home.


Hell if he had been white they never would have considered pressing charges.

 

Justice for Martin Louis Guy!

Bust it.

Here’s the petition “Please drop the Capital Murder and Attempted Murder charges against Marvin Louis Guy for the shooting death of Officer during a No-Knock Raid at his Home”.

What the fuck is a no-knock raid??? They shouldn’t be allowed to do that!

A No-Knock Raid was practice that was implemented during the War On Drugs. There are “legal” parameters for it. General speaking it is ineffective and has a strong likelihood of civilians getting shot. Michelle Alexander’s book The New Jim Crow explains it better than I can
