Comments on: Texas: deputy sues family of delusional man shot by police http://overlawyered.com/2014/04/texas-deputy-sues-family-delusional-man-shot-police/ Chronicling the high cost of our legal system Fri, 31 Jul 2015 02:59:52 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.2 By: marco73 http://overlawyered.com/2014/04/texas-deputy-sues-family-delusional-man-shot-police/comment-page-1/#comment-277310 Mon, 07 Apr 2014 19:48:42 +0000 http://overlawyered.com/?p=45051#comment-277310 How long has this deputy worn a badge? Didn’t he know that the most dangerous calls are “domestics?” The 911 operator and the paramedic on scene both told the responding officers that the man was dangerous. But 10 minutes later, the man is dead and a deputy has a broken nose. A $100K broken nose.
The title of the article alluded to heros. I remember when a hero cop was one who pulled a child out of a burning building or pulled a motorist out of a submerged car. Tasing and shooting an unarmed man on his living room floor doesn’t rise to hero to me.
