http://camppendleton.patch.com/articles/deputy-who-shot-marine-says-loggins-was-irrational-and-children-were-endangered Originally the police officer said he felt he was in danger but now says that he thought the marine was placing his daughters in danger. So he shot him in the back with his daughters sitting right behind him. I might be wrong but this story smells fishy to me. This reminds me of the story of the marine who was shot by swat and they first said he had fired on them but later they found out that he had his weapon on safe. He had just fell asleep from working a 12 hour shift at the mines when his wife woke him up telling him someone was peeping in their window. http://azstarnet.com/news/local/crime/article_b3177522-baa0-5c9e-9f0d-d3d7da6e9e4b.html no drugs were found in his home. Supposedly he was suspected of being involved in the drug trade and was part of a mass group house to house search warrants. I read another story not long ago where the police had blocked another veteran in with their cars and shot him also, it also turned out to be that he didn't have any weapons just like the first story. Has the police departments been given free reign to exercise deadly force without any provocation or following procedures? It seems like you hear more cases of police using deadly force now than you used to 15 years ago. I think this has more to do with new found powers that police have been given since the patriot act and other laws design to (IMO) destroy the constitution.
