<a href="http://newstaco.com/2011/05/24/cops-shoot-latino-marine-71-times-deny-him-care-in-arizona/" target="_blank">http://newstaco.com/2011/05/24/cops-...re-in-arizona/</a><br><br>
This happened in Arizona. Apparently, on suspicion that a house contained drugs, a SWAT team bust into this Marine's house in the early morning with a warrant. When confronted with armed men, the Marine got his rifle (without firing a single shot)and was then shot 71 times by the cops. After the shooting, the Marine was denied medical care for over an hour. The police claimed the first shot was an accident and then there was confusion. No drugs were found.<br><br>
Um, sure. It was so confusing that they had to shoot dozens of times at one guy. The article didn't mention how many cops there were. I can't really think of a situation where people need to shoot someone over 70 times. How long would that take? Well, I suppose if the weapons were set at 'repetition', that wouldn't take too long. But if they were single shots, assuming there were about half a dozen cops, I think that would take a good minute and more of continuous shooting (a long time!). Now, only 71shots hit the body, but I bet a lot more shots were fired that missed.<br><br>
This is insane!

Not that I condone shooting someone like this but it looks like more evidence is coming out that he may have been involved with a cartel along with his brother and others. Drug and human smuggling is a sad but all too common occurrence here in AZ. I would not want to be a law enforcement officer in this state.<br><br>
To warn you the video to the right of the article is a bit graphic as it shows part of the raid (gunshots and bullet holes).<br><br><a href="http://www.azcentral.com/news/articles/2011/05/28/20110528tucson-swat-team-kills-ex-marine-jose-guerena.html" target="_blank">http://www.azcentral.com/news/articl...e-guerena.html</a><br><br>
Very sad for the wife and children left behind.

It <i>is</i> insane. There's already a <a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/newvb/showthread.php?125448-Former-Marine-Murdered-by-SWAT-Team" target="_blank">thread</a> on this though. A mod may want to combine the two.
