Jose Guerena: not much for me to add

Murder and a Cover Up




There is not much left for me to add to the story you’ve probably already read a dozen articles on. I’ve been reading and researching for over a week now, and it stinks. This is at least my third attempt to write this post, but I don’t know where to begin. Absolutely wrong 8-1 decision by the Supreme Court seems to gut the 4th Amendment. Even Scalia signed on. Lunatic liberal as Sheriff. Militarization of the police. Disinterested media. Jack booted thugs. Racism? Just another damned Mexicano, so who cares? The whole damn country should be screaming from the rooftops demanding a fully transparent investigation from the highest levels of state government. Yet 3 weeks after the event, pretty much all we have is “nothing to see here, move along.” There should be major media pieces, with graphics, time lines, coroner’s report diagrams, photographs and interviews ... and there haven’t really been. Oh, there’s been some. But they haven’t dug down deep enough.

On May 5, Tuscon citizen and USMC veteran Jose Guerena was killed in his own home by a multi-departmental SWAT team under the jurisdiction of infamous Sheriff Dupnik. In an absolutely stellar display of police marksmanship he was hit 60 times from 71 shots fired in about 7 seconds by 5 officers, who panic reacted when one of their own shot first. While his wife and small son hid in a closet and called 911, who dicked about and wasted at least 15 minutes before sending an ambulance. Which the police refused access to Guerena for an hour and 15 minutes. And that’s about the only real facts that we have, because the bullshit and the CYA began almost immediately thereafter.

Please, if you haven’t read about this story, go here to the Huffington Post and spend a few minutes reading Radley Balko’s essay. It’s long, but this iteration covers almost all the details.

Almost all. One point it misses which I’ve seen elsewhere, is that the police refused to allow the EMS crew into the house because they felt that they had a barricade situation. This is a crock. You’re going to have to do some of your own Googling, because I’ve lost track of most of the dozens and dozens of articles I’ve read on this. There are thousands of them. Find the ones written by Ghost32, the ones at Reason, and the original May 6 article and it’s follow ups. Sorry, but I’m just overwhelmed by all of it. The barricade story is just one more of the lies put out by Dupnik’s goons.

Guerena was shot 60 times. He didn’t crawl off anywhere with his gun. He died on the spot. I’m sorry. I know the meme is that the amped up cops cruelly left him to die, but lets get real. The weapons of choice of any SWAT team are the H&K MP5 machine pistol and the M16 (or any of it’s variants, full auto or semi). High velocity 9mm pistol bullets, or 5.56mm military rifle bullets. His body was torn to shreds, obviously. As his wife said in the 911 call, his intestines were all over the floor. So there was no reason at all to deny the EMS crew, but there was nothing for them to do. Even if they’d got there within 3 minutes of the shooting, there would have been nothing for them to do. People just don’t survive 60 bullets. Worst case they bleed out in a couple minutes. Possibly in a handful of seconds.

One article I found said how a reporter had been in the house afterwards and saw the enormous blood puddle in the hallway, sans drag marks. Where’s the picture please? Or the statement that they weren’t allowed to take any. Several others have said how interviews with the neighbors belied the story that the cops showed up with sirens wailing and lights flashing. One mentions how a neighbor was on the phone with his father, when suddenly gunshots rang out ‘pop pop pop’.

Some of the posts I’ve read have conjectured that some of the police fired at him right through the walls of his house. Given thermal imaging this is entirely possible; the typical home construction in America will hardly slow bullets down, much less stop them. But with thermal imaging (which we do not know if the SWAT cops had) it would be very easy to know that there were other people in the house, including a child. And having such gear would really put the lie to the “barricade situation” story. But that “some cops shot through the walls from the side of the house” idea does provide an answer to another unanswered question: how can you fit 5 big burly cops in body armor in the hallway of a small house, or at the doorway, so that they all have a clear line to the target, and NOT have this as a premeditated assassination? You can’t. The SWAT team had to be arrayed in some kind of battle square formation with prone, kneeling, and standing shooters BEFORE they kicked in the door. Lined up like a three tiered firing squad.

About the only thing I can add is that there is a good chance that the SWAT cops never needed to fire a shot, even if they had been shot at. Why? Read the article: they had shields. Now, I don’t know what kind of shields. Obviously not Viking targes, or Roman Scutums, but something modern. Possibly something like the plexiglass affairs the Bobbies used against that machete guy in the UK video Peiper put up the other day, but hey. This is a SWAT team. So my guess is that they had SWAT shields. And those things are bulletproof. Seriously so; they are designed to stop full power military rifle fire. And they’re big enough to hide behind.

So every day it looks more and more like this is the dirtiest cover up ever, engineered by a foaming lefty in charge. The story changes every day. The warrant was sealed 4 days after the event transpired. There is no evidence of any narco trafficking by Guerena, and even the later claim that he was involved in a home invasion ring seems to be little more than slander. I have not heard of any independent investigation being started up from Phoenix.

I would have thought that Sheriff Dupnik would have been canned after his idiotic remarks started a partisan nationwide shitstorm of baseless accusations after the shooting by Jared Loughner back in January. Or placed on leave of absence pending investigation over his own non-action prior to that, since he was well aware of Loughner’s crazy and had ignored it multiple times. And now we’ve got one of the lamest CYAs ever, and that still isn’t enough for the Arizona government to act?

It’s over folks. We live in a police state. At least one state’s high court supports them.  And to some extent, so does the Supreme Court. More than 50,000 No Knock Warrants issued every year. No right to defend yourself against illegal entry or home invasion if, afterwards, one they take off their masks, take off their armor, take off their ninja outfits, and turn out to be police. With a sealed warrant you have no right to see. But it’s Ok for them to shoot you on the spot in your own home, even if you haven’t fired a shot in your own defense. 60 times.

Looks like somebody’s “fundamental change” to America is nearly complete.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
