    Police in phoenix responded to a 911 for an intruder. They proceded to shoot the homeowner six times, first shooting him in the back. 911 tapes record the officers, one saying "fuck, I shot the home owner." The other saying "don't worry, I got your back man."


    Arambula family sues after cop shoots homeowner, not intruder

    Just doing their job? Honest mistake?

    Or have Maricopa county's over zealous cops really screwed up this time?

    Don't hold an intruder at gunpoint. Just shoot him and be done with it.

    Well, look at the guy they shot. He looks Hispanic. If the intruder was a white guy, then of course they shot the homeowner. They probably felt it was a no brainer. Use the same logic for giving someone a DWB - Driving While Black.

    Yup, this cop is obviously a problem.

    The following in the article states the police have cooperated fully:

    The Cop made a bad mistake and admitted to it. That is the Foundation. Yes the Home Owner is the Victim, and should be well compensated. I'd like to here more from those directly involved, about how it went down, and how it's being handled. Blind Crusades do more harm than good.

    No one has yet commented on Joe Arpaio and his "blind crusade" in Maricopa county that specifically targets hispanics. The police are currently under investigation for profiling hispanics and now a hispanic homeowner is shot dead.

    Does not look good.
