OFFICER CHARGED WITH FELONY MURDER NOW FACING SEVEN MORE CHARGES OVER DEADLY NO-KNOCK RAID

OURCE: TECH DIRT
The botched drug raid in Houston that left two homeowners dead and one cop paralyzed from the waist down has resulted in additional criminal charges… against the cops.
Officer Gerald Goines -- already facing felony murder charges for the raid that left Rhogena Nicholas and Dennis Tuttle dead -- claimed an informant purchased heroin from Tuttle and saw guns in the house. One no-knock raid later, Nicholas and Tuttle were dead, killed by cops whose actions were set in motion by a warrant affidavit full of lies.

The heroin supposedly sold to Goines’ informant? Pulled from the console of Goines’ cruiser. The controlled buy didn’t happen either. No one has been able to locate the informant Goines claimed saw heroin and guns in the Tuttle residence. As a result, more than 1,400 cases Goines had a hand in have been placed under review. Two dozen have already been dismissed. The DA’s office and the FBI have also opened their own investigations.

The raid produced nothing the cops were looking for. There was no heroin. There were a couple of guns, but the gun Tuttle supposedly used to shoot at officers wasn’t in the search inventory. All the officers found was personal use amounts of cocaine and marijuana. An independent forensic examination of the scene came to the conclusion that either the state’s forensic unit sucks at what it does or that it was attempting to make the evidence fit the false narrative crafted by the officers who participated in the raid.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are a number of good cops in this country; I know, because a very dear family member who used serve in this manner, and is now retired.

But when the "lust for a bust" overcomes the logic, and the "evidence" in a case, that is where a raid like the above-described can go "mammary glands vertical" in a heartbeat.
