Sheriff Dupnik, of Pima County, Arizona has gone from unavoidable for offensive unfounded hateful comments against Conservatives when Jared Loughner murdered 6 and shot several including Arizona Congressional Representative Gabrille Giffords to unavailable for comment in the case of a SWAT raid on a Tucson home which resulted in more than 70 shots fired in 7 seconds with 60 hitting and killing Jose Guerena. Dupnik has hid behind a spokesman and issued as many as 5 different versions of the incident.
I don't know if Jose Guerena was a good guy or a bad guy. I do know that he was a Marine and served our country in Iraq. I know that he was in bed asleep in his home with his wife and 4 year old son in a neighborhood alleged to have a problem with home invasion attacks. And the video below seems to indicate that this was a "no knock" and no announcement can be heard that it was the police. I know that the safety was on Guerenas weapon and he never fired a single shot. And I know that nothing illegal was found in his home. And that medical attention, which arrived within 2 minutes of being called, was kept on hold for more than an hour and then sent away. I don't know if anyone could have survived 60 gunshot wounds, but some effort should have been made to help the poor man whose wife said he was still alive. Allegedly, Guerena lay there dying for an hour and fourteen minutes.
Dupnik. You're done. Resign in disgrace. Go home. Go away. And take the officers who denied medical treatment to a dying man wtih you.
The family has hired an attorney. No amount of money will replace this young man, husband, father. But, they deserve to know the truth of why their home was raided. They are going to sue Pima County, Arizona for all it's worth - probably for all it'll be worth for the next 100 years.
Update: Blackfive has a lot of information and links to even more.
