“My brother literally walked across the yard, walked into the back fence to get to the side door, had his subway and mask in one hand keys in the other, UNLOCKED AND OPENED THE DOOR and stepped in the house before shooting him,” Harper wrote. “IF HE WAS SUCH A THREAT WHY DID YOU WAIT SO LONG TO SHOOT?! WHY DID TOU [sic] KILL A MAN WALKING INTO HIS OWN HOME?!”
Goodson was shot and killed by police though he has not a target of an investigation. Police claim they recovered a gun. Nobody believes them as organizations such as the fugitive task force involved are generally made of rogue officers. Check the photo above.
Cop or criminal?
VT: Victim, Casey Goodson, was returning from a dentist visit, parked his car in his driveway and was unlocking his door while carrying bags of takeout food in his other hand.
Police say he was waving a gun also, using his third arm, and had to shoot him in the back 3 times to protect themselves.
