Settled out of court
This maybe a repost, but I don't care.
Accused of killing deputy, suspect shot 68 times
‘We would have shot him more,’ sheriff says of SWAT team’s actions
MIAMI - A fugitive gunman accused of killing a Florida sheriff’s deputy was shot 68 times by SWAT team officers who found him hiding in the woods, according to autopsy results.
Police fired 110 shots at Angilo Freeland, 27, the target of a massive manhunt in central Florida following the shooting death of Polk County Sheriff’s Deputy Matt Williams Thursday.
“That’s all the bullets we had, or we would have shot him more,” Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd told the Orlando Sentinel newspaper.
Judd said Williams was “executed” after Freeland was pulled over in a routine traffic stop on Thursday. Another deputy was wounded and a police dog killed.
Williams, 39, was shot eight times—one bullet fired at close range behind the deputy’s right ear and another in his right temple, according to autopsy results released on Saturday by the sheriff’s office.
Sheriff’s officials said SWAT team members found Freeland on Friday hiding under a fallen oak tree in a wooded area near where the deputies were shot, and began firing when they saw a gun in his hand.

Got to love the Sheriff's quote.

That SWAT needs more range practice. Too many misses resulted in a waste of 32 rounds.

I just hope some SOB doesn't try to bring a lawsuit against the SO. The rat bastard got better than he deserved, if life was fair the guy would have gotten the living hell beaten out of him first, then dragged to death behind the fallen deputy's patrol car.\\` ` ` ` < ` )___/\

You can bet some family member will bring a law suit. I hope the fucker felt pain for a little while before he died. I hope he burns in hell. Good job to all of the officers involved. God bless Off. Williams.

If they do file a lawsuit, I suggest we at LEF file a class action lawsuit against them for pain and suffering.Molly Weasley makes Chuck Norris eat his vegetables.
