General Discussion Forum / 5 Dead in Boone, NC
« on: April 29, 2021, 12:23:04 PM »
13 hour ordeal left 5 dead, including 2 officers.

(CNN)Five people are dead, including two North Carolina sheriff's deputies, after a check on a person who did not show up for work ended in gunfire and a 13-hour standoff, authorities said.

Watauga County Sheriff K-9 Deputy Logan Fox died at the scene in the Blue Ridge Mountain town of Boone, and Sgt. Chris Ward died after being flown to a local hospital, the sheriff's office said in a statement.
The deputies were shot after entering the home. They were responding to a call for a welfare check Wednesday after the homeowner's employer reported that the person did not show up for work and was not answering their phone, according to the statement.

A Boone Police Department officer was also struck by gunfire while attempting to rescue the downed deputies but his protective gear prevented injury, the statement said.
The unidentified shooting suspect and the suspect's mother and stepfather are also dead, according to Watauga County Sheriff Len Hagaman, CNN affiliate WSOC reported.

Gov. Roy Cooper, in a statement, said he had spoken with Hagaman to offer condolences and assistance.
"We grieve for Sgt. Chris Ward, K-9 Deputy Logan Fox and the entire Watauga County law enforcement community today after these tragic deaths in the line of duty," Cooper said. "These horrific shootings that claimed lives and loved ones show the ever-present danger law enforcement can encounter in the line of duty."
The standoff ended shortly before 11 p.m. Wednesday, the statement said.
"This is an incredibly tragic situation and our thoughts and prayers are with everyone involved as well as their families and our community," Hagaman said in a statement.

The investigation is being led by the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation.
The shooter had barricaded in the home and occasionally fired in the direction of law enforcement officers, according to the statement.
Nearby residents were evacuated.
More than a dozen law enforcement agencies responded.

For review and discussion....

According to the Belleville News-Democrat, a former Georgia sheriff's deputy arrested on multiple gun charges bragged in private texts that he would charge Black people with felonies to prevent them from voting.

"The ex-Wilkinson County deputy, Cody Richard Griggers, of Montrose, was fired last November after the FBI contacted the sheriff there about an investigation into illegal guns and their alleged ties to a California man said to have made violent political statements on Facebook," reported Joe Kovac, Jr. "Griggers, 28, a former Marine, pleaded guilty on Monday in federal court in Macon to one count of possession of an unregistered firearm, a crime the authorities discovered in their probe, which began last summer. He faces a maximum of 10 years in prison when he is sentenced in July."

"I'm going to charge them with whatever felonies I can to take away their ability to vote," he wrote in a text message, according to an FBI affidavit. He also bragged about a brutal assault on a Black man, saying "I beat the (expletive) out of a (racial slur) Saturday. (Expletive) tried to steal (a gun magazine) from the local gun store. ... Sheriff's dept. said it looked like he fell." However, the sheriff says this was likely just made up, as there is no gun store in the area.
"The prosecutors said that on Nov. 19 last year that the FBI searched Griggers' patrol car and found a machine gun 'with an obliterated serial number,' a weapon he was not allowed to have in his patrol car," said the report. "'An unregistered short barrel shotgun was found in his home,' the statement went on. 'In all, between the defendant's residence and duty vehicle, officers found 11 illegal firearms.'"

This case is not unique. Reports have indicated that white supremacists have embedded themselves in police departments around the country. The FBI has warned about the problem as far back as 15 years ago.

Little background & perspective for y’all...

Mo does sports talk radio on the local espn radio affiliate and sometimes fill in nationally on espn radio primarily overnight. Dude was all on board when Tommy was announced as Bearcats coach. Was quick to point out that he was dead wrong when he saw who and what Tuberville was all about as a coach and person....

Now fast forward to this forearm shiver of a tweet...
