Gonzalo Guizan Update

Monday, September 29th, 2008

It’s been close to five months, now, and it looks like it’ll be at least another month until we get a report on the Easton, Connecticut police raid that killed 33-year-old Gonzalo Guizan.  Police were acting on a tip from a prostitute who claims she saw a gun and a small amount of cocaine at the house.  They stormed the place hours later, with little investigation.  Guizan didn’t live at the home.  His family says that he was visiting the home’s owner, Ronald Terebesi, Jr.  The two were planning to open an employment business together.  Police shot Guizan at least a dozen times as he ran toward them, likely out of fear.  Guizan was unarmed.

Police found no guns, and only enough drugs and paraphernalia to charge Terebesi with a misdemeanor.  That charge was dropped when Terebesi agreed to undergo treatment.

    It’s the new rage in police work! Just bust in and shoot who or whatever with the flimsiest provocation. Dogs, people, other cops. It doesn’t matter… it’s all good.

    The beauty of this strategy is you never need to trot your informants out in court! If the perp lives, you just drop all charges.


    And no, it is apparently not illegal, nor do you need a permit to own a gun in connecticut.

    Oh boy, the poor guy wasn’t even in his own house and the police murdered him!

    I want to know the necessity behind shooting Mr. Guizan TWELVE times! My God, these guys are either piss-poor shots or far too amped-up to be conducting raids. Likely both!

    A good reason to avoid prostitutes, and a GREAT reason we MUST defend the right to bear arms in every state of the Union.

    In Ct, you only need a permit to carry the gun with you. I think that you do have to register any firearms with the local PD.

    I have a large amount of money that I’ll bet that I can predict exactly what this “investigation” will “reveal”.

    Hear that sound? Thats either this being swept under the rug or Mr. Hooper was brought back from the dead…either way, its horrible and a complete shame.

    CT requires a permit for purchasing of pistols and to carry concealed. Long guns require no permits.

    It’s an interesting contrast how quickly the investigation of Ryan Frederick led to murder charges….
