Gonzalo Guizan

Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

Over at Reason, Ed Krayewski has an update on the story of Gonzalo Guizan, an unarmed Connecticut man who was killed during a 2008 drug raid.

For background, here’s a post I wrote on Guizan last year.

    Does anyone else think that We The People need to Take The Law Into Our Own Hands in order to get justice? It seems unfair for the town to be sued – and let’s face it: lawyers make off like bandits.

    It sure would be a crying shame if the trigger men were found dead somewhere. It would be a real shame indeed. Not that I advocate vigilantism, of course.

    Does anyone else think that advocating the killing of cops is the shittiest solution solution ever? Lot of internet tough guy talk going on here lately.

    Sure, it’s a terrible solution, but it’s also a terrible problem. Police are using us for target practice.

    @Mattocracy – what’s your solution, bro?

    Since you can’t read, I didn’t advocate the killing anyone. Stay in school, kid.

    You’ve a knack for maintaining plausible deniability — screw vigilantism, you should run for office.

    “Does anyone else think that We The People need to Take The Law Into Our Own Hands in order to get justice?”

    Brings to mind a recent Esquire article called “Nation of Scofflaws” about how the courts and cops and laws are so FUBAR no one in the US
    even cares about abiding by the “law” anymore, similar to Prohibition days.

    I blogged this about a month ago when the district court released its opinion:

    http://police4aqi.wordpress.com/2012/09/01/no-qi-for-policemen-who-planned-and-executed-fatal-gonzalo-guizan-raid/

    The blog entry links to the district court opinion, which is worth reading in its entirety for the most comprehensive (and probably most accurate) telling of what happened to Gonzalo, his friend and the prostitute lady. Better than any media account I have seen (as federal district court opinions usually are).
