Former Marine killed by SWAT was acting in defense, family says

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - New details are emerging about Jose Guerena, the man killed last Thursday in a SWAT incident at his Tucson home. He was gunned down by SWAT members while his wife and young child hid in a closet.

Now, the Pima County Sheriff's Department has taken responsibility for the fatal shooting. The SWAT team said it was just executing a narcotics search warrant when Guerena threatened officers with a military rifle. But the Sheriff's Department has changed its story on whether Guerena actually fired at anyone.

On Tuesday, candles and tributes to Guerena could be seen outside

This is only the beginning

our police are no longer peace officers. They are single purpose state enforcers. They are being feed so much BS and if they are worth a dang they leave. We are left with the communities being abused by these macho jack booted thugs.

They lie as SOP. As long as the police themselves protect murders and abuses within their ranks they will all fall into the evil of the worst.

Were are the good police?

How long will you protect abusers, wife beaters, and murders with your pathetic union rules?


Liberty = Responsibility

SWAT team

should receive the firing squad as punishment for this.
