    And The State is the victim. The legislation empowering law enforcement and neutering gun owners is being written if they don’t already have it on the shelf.

    What if they were serving a red flag warrant to collect all the guys legal guns and he took a stand? Some say they will make that stand no matter what. Though so far this post laments the shooting as bad for gun owners. Big double edge sword.

    Five narcotics officers injured in shooting while serving warrant

    At least five Houston Police Department officers have been shot at a southeast Houston home. The shooting was reported on Harding Street near Berkley Street. Houston Police Officers Union president Joe Gamaldi posted on Twitter that two of the officers are in critical condition while the three others are in stable condition.

    All five of the injured officers were taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital - Texas Medical Center, at least two of them taken by Life Flight medical helicopter. The officers were serving a warrant when the shooting was reported on Monday afternoon.

    Houston police have confirmed that one suspect has died at the crime scene with the SWAT team actively working to make sure there is no one else inside the home on Harding Street.

    If this turns out to be a shootout with a cross border cartel's distribution house expect the media to forget about the story by tomorrow morning.

    As they breached the front door, the officers immediately came under fire from one or two people inside with semiautomatic weapons, the chief said.

    No knock warrant? can't be as they did it in daylight.

    Law enforcement seems to like to show force in their arrests.

    This reminds me of the Roger Stone arrest except in this one the police got a show of force back.

    Yeah, I'm so very confused by this as well. I thought "cuz drugz" was the standard reason for a no-knock warrant. Why would they be doing it the normal way when drugs are involved?

    I'll withhold judgement until the FACTS are in. The media has proven they not only can't be trusted - they actively lie and fabricate to fulfil a story, the police sign sworn statements by the dozen that obviously conflict with body cams.

    The injuries seem to be neck and shoulder so maybe buckshot and vests?

    This story just went ‘poof’ didn’t it - nothing illegal found in the house? Can’t report that.

    New info I found:

    Black Tar Heroin dealers - but none found
    Cops doing the raid in plain clothes
    Immediately started shooting upon entering (dog)
    Guns they had were legal (I infer no criminal records on either)
    Found some grass and a powder (Fentyl maybe - but no amounts stated). *****In Edit - nothing found

    Latest info:

    A completely fabricated search warrant affidavit (no drug buy, no informant, no suspicious activity per neighbors)

    No drugs AT ALL found in the house

    Came in, unannounced, plain clothes, started shooting immediately (dog) so victims thought defend themselves or die anyway.

    Cops backed out and left them to die for 2hrs.


    A perfect application for the Death Penalty in Texas for the cop.

    Also a perfect reason to have a select-fire M4-gery available - just in case.


    Mistakes happen, forging documents is premeditated.

    Not the first time he's lied nor the first time he's been shot while working as a cop.

    The Houston police officer at the center of the botched drug raid has been shot twice before. The facts of one of those shootings changed dramatically in the days after it.

    Senior Officer Gerald Goines, 54, was shot in 1992 and 1997.

    In 1992, Houston police said Goines had just completed a narcotics transaction when he stopped to urinate on a tree. The homeowner, who was worried about burglars, walked outside and spoke to Goines. Moments later, police said at the time, he returned with a pistol. Goines was shot in the jaw.

    In 1997, what was first believed to be a narcotics bust turned out to be a deadly case of road rage on the Southwest Freeway, according to police. Days after the shooting that left Goines injured and another man, Reginald Dorsey, dead, police said the two were competing for space on the freeway. Dorsey pulled out a gun. Both men fired. Goines was shot in the arm and abdomen.

    Goines has been with HPD for 34 years. HPD Chief Art Acevedo says when he is released from the hospital after the latest shooting, he will be relieved of duty.

    NYTimes has a nice writeup of this scumbag cop that lied and killed two citizens in their homes and got 4 of his colleagues shot in an illegal raid.

    This is so egregious there might actually be consequences for this cop, though true justice would be two murder charges.

    Houston Officer Lied About Confidential Informant in Deadly Drug Operation, Chief Says

    Maybe it's time to question whether the word of some sketchy CI is enough to justify a warrant anyway. A CI's word is not trustworthy, even when the police don't lie about it.

    Again, its the bad ones that need to just vanish without a trace and just maybe, others will get the message that people arent going to put up with thugs getting away with murder. How many innocent people have lost their lives because of the ineptness or just bad info that some departments get? When will it end....if ever?
