Man Shoots at Intruders, Turns Out it was a No-Knock Raid. Now He Faces the Death Penalty

Free Thought Project – by Cassandra Rules

On Friday, May 9, 2014, just after 5:30am in Killeen, Texas, Marvin Louis Guy was the target of a no knock raid.

The officers were looking for drugs, yet none were found in the home.  There was some questionable paraphernalia, but nothing indicative of drug dealing- or anything damning enough for a reasonable person to feel the need to take an officers life.  

Unfortunately the danger of no-knock raids is real. just ask the parents of baby Bou or the family of Detective Dinwiddie.

Detective Dinwiddie was one of the SWAT officers who broke into Guy’s house on May 9th, based on a seemingly bogus informant tip off about drugs being dealt from the home.

Likely alarmed by the men climbing through his windows at 5:30 in the morning, Guy and his wife sought to protect themselves and their property and fired on the intruders- in self defense.

Dinwiddie, along with three other officers were shot while attempting to breach the windows to the home, according to the department’s press release.

“The TRU was beginning to breach the window when the 49 year old male inside, opened fire striking four officers.”

Since the shooting occurred during the break in, a reasonable person would assume they had not yet identified themselves as police officers.  How on earth is this not self defense?

Prosecutors are now seeking the death penalty against Guy. He is charged with capital murder in Dinwiddie’s death, as well as three counts of attempted capital murder for firing on the other officers during the shootout, injuring one other officer. Body armor protected others who were hit.

This announcement, given by the prosecutor in open court, comes one day after Governor Rick Perry presented  Dinwiddie’s family with the Star of Texas award. This award is given out each year to police and first responders killed or injured in the line of duty, the Killeen Daily Herald reported.

  1. same thing would happen if they tried to pull this crap at my place

    its the no knock raid that is illegal not those protecting their homes with lethal force due to a break in , no matter who the “players” are in the break in

    illegal entry, illegal search and seizure any death of a cop is on their hands not the home owner

    ask for a jury trial , people are getting fed up with this crap

    also from the sounds of things they probably wouldnt be able to get a genuine real warrant.. signed by oath and affirmation, because it was an “Informant” so its his word against the home owner and the cops are taking the word of an informant and that is not legal in a sense of how our rights are written or how the law on this is written either

    cops broke the law , not the home owner

    also this is another reason why cops dont like to come thru windows.. it leaves them vulnerable .. so make your doors fort knox, and force them to either give it up, or to come thru a way they are not geared for , thus giving you the upper hand

    so another cop bites it for breaking the law? not going to lose one tear over that, if anything it better start teaching them a lesson or two

  2. F that.
    Where is the relief fund for this guys defense?

    Sounds like he could use a few witnesses to not show up and lie against him.

    This also happened on my birthday.

  3. I think the Jury will see the BS and he will be set free. No knock warrant for drugs??? what a joke…

  4. If I were on the jury, my verdict would be NOT GUILTY! If Detective Dipshit wasn’t breaking into the home, he would still be alive today. The whole story behind the “justification” for the raid stinks worse than a cesspool. I hope this man is cleared of all charges. I hope even more that “no knock raids” are outlawed. People have the right to defend themselves, the Founding Fathers made that clear in the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

  5. That’s what they get for getting rid of the 4th Article to the Bill of Rights. This guy did absolutely nothing wrong, other than defend his house/his castle.

    If he had been a cop shooting at them, it would have been a slap on the wrist or an “honest mistake”. But not for an ordinary individual.

    Hang every last one of these treasonous pigs, including the prosecuting lawyer! 😡
