COP "BROKE NO LAWS" WHEN HE WENT TO INNOCENT FAMILY'S HOME, SHOT HUSBAND THROUGH A WINDOW

(Support Free Thought) - Simpsonville, SC — In case after corrupt case, we have reported on police officers who shoot and often kill entirely innocent people — on video — and face no consequences. Even when they are caught lying about what actually happened, the officers involved in the shooting and the subsequent cover up, are almost never held accountable. Case in point, the following story out of South Carolina in which a cop walked up to an innocent man’s home, shot him through the window, lied about it, and the department ruled that he “broke no laws.”

On the night of June 14, 2019, Dick Tench and his wife were sound asleep when Greenville County deputy Kevin Azzara walked up to the couple’s home, rang the doorbell and then shot Tench four times before he could even open the door. The entire scene was captured on the officer’s body camera, and department’s original version of events did not match the video at all. Despite the blatant discrepancies between what the department claimed happened and what actually happened, Azzara was ruled justified in his actions this week.

Since that night, Azzara has been on paid vacation. However, he will now return to regular duty.

“That was our position from the beginning, that he broke no laws, he broke no policies, he didn’t do anything wrong,” Michael Laubshire, an attorney with the South Carolina Fraternal Order of Police who is representing Azzara, told The Greenville News.

According to the department’s original “official story,” when Azzara came to the door, Tench opened up the door and pointed a gun at the deputy. However, after you watch the video below, you can clearly see that this is not the case at all.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My heart weeps for this family, and we are going to need to have a peaceful, fact-informed national conversation about excessive use of force by our police, in this country.

When a narrative does not even begin to compete with body-cam footage, we have a real problem in this country, and one which screams to be rectified.
