Search warrant gives new spin to John Schaefer story


After shooting Mr. Schaefer the police got a search warrant for his home to confiscate his other weapons and cell phone. The warrant gives details that are very different from the original story.

The story in the warrant seems bogus, IMO. I am surprised that there is so little outcry over this shooting.

More details:

Was it a BB gun?

Watch the local news clip video. The article does not give all the details.

Neighbors claim that they had complained about this particular deputy before. This story proves how important community watch groups are. Otherwise we just get the police side of the story and a blip from the media saying: "Cop shoots gunman in self defense while on patrol in bad part of town."

If you missed the John Schaefer thread or the thread about the Austin City Council's support of gun control:

I hope he pulls through and is able to give his side of the story.
