It’s this simple. The deputies came to the door expecting trouble and ended up killing the man who opened it:
It was in the 1:30 a.m. when deputies knocked on the 26-year-old Scott’s door, not identifying themselves as law enforcement officers. Scott answered the door holding a gun, and deputies opened fire.
“When we knocked on the door, the door opened and the occupant of that apartment was pointing a gun at deputies and that’s when we opened fire and killed him,” Lt. John Herrell told WESH.
Even though Scott was well within his rights to answer the door with his handgun and within reason to be wary of people at his door in the middle of the night when an accused murder is on the loose, and even though officers never identified themselves, Herrell still maintained that Andrew Scott was at fault.
Wrong. The officers should have identified themselves.
Regardless, the point is, SWATting conservative bloggers could result in the same results.
I personally think that’s the goal.
