VT: What do you think transpired during the ride home? We suggest “something personal” that the deputy was not happy with. The “act” for the bodycam, claiming a phone anyone could easily see what a gun…
Behind this we likely have a first degree murder involving a closeted gay deputy.
Family members say Isaiah dialed 9/11 about his car and there was NO family incident. Police, however, have invented a domestic incident with NO other participant to justify what seems to be something very strange…let’s see what our cop looks like.
An attorney for Isaiah Brown, 32, said his client was shot while on the phone with 911 after the deputy — who had returned to respond to a “domestic incident,” per state police — mistook a phone for a gun.
Isaiah Brown is in intensive care after a sheriff's deputy shot him 10 times outside his home in Virginia yesterday.
Mr. Brown was unarmed, carrying just his cell phone. Bystanders say the deputy appeared to open fire without warning and for no reason.https://t.co/tDkvY4V4mS

Brown was taken to a local hospital after the shooting early Wednesday with serious but non-life-threatening injuries, according to statements from the Virginia State Police, which said its Bureau of Criminal Investigation’s Culpeper Field Office Police Shooting Investigation Team was investigating at the request of the Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s Office.
The shooting took place after a Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s deputy responded to a call about a “disabled motorist” and gave Brown a ride home from a gas station, state police said.
Asked if the deputy who shot Brown was the same who had given him a ride home earlier, VSP spokesperson Corinne Geller confirmed to CNN it was the same deputy.
The body camera video and 911 audio were released late Friday, after the sheriff’s office said Brown’s family had reviewed both at the invitation of the sheriff’s office and a special prosecutor in the case, the Fredericksburg Commonwealth’s Attorney.
“After viewing the Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s deputy’s bodycam video and listening to the 911 call, it is evident that the tragic shooting of Isaiah Brown was completely avoidable,” David Haynes, an attorney for Brown’s family, said in a statement. He said Brown was “on the phone with 911 at the time of the shooting and the officer mistook a cordless house phone for a gun.”
In the body camera footage, the deputy is heard saying Brown has a gun.
“Drop the gun now and stop walking towards me,” the deputy is heard yelling in the body camera footage. “Stop walking towards me. Stop. Stop.”
A spokesperson for the Virginia State Police told CNN Brown was unarmed at the time of the shooting.
