"Justified": Uniformed Invaders Shoot a Man 16 Times in his Bed

by William Grigg

Corrections Officer Kris Rongen Receives Officer of the Month Award

Auburn, Washington resident Dustin Theoharis was asleep in his bed on February 11, 2012 when two armed strangers entered his room and started to give him orders. Understandably startled, Theoharis reached for a flashlight. This prompted the two intruders to open fire. Theoharis -- who was still in bed -- was shot sixteen times, but survived.

The assailants who shot Theoharis were Detective Aaron Thompson of the King County Sheriff's Office and Corrections Officer Kris Rongen. They had arrested Theoharis's roommate, Nicholas Harrison, an ex-convict who had failed to report for community supervision. The officers were searching his bedroom to find if Theoharis had a gun, which would have allowed them to charge Harrison with a parole violation. They had no warrant or probable cause, and no gun was found. Since Harrison was already in custody at the time of the incident, there was no need to conduct a "safety sweep" of the residence.

Immediately after the shots were fired, Detective Benjamin Wheeler -- one of four other officers on the scene -- went to the downstairs bedroom, where he found Theoharis lying in a pool of blood and the two officers who had shot him in what appeared to be a "state of shock."

When Wheeler asked what happened, Thompson told him that the victim "told us he had four guns, and then he started reaching for one." This was a lie. No gun was found in the bedroom. A rifle was found in a locked gun case in the room next door. Theoharis was asleep when the officers went into his darkened bedroom and began barking orders at him, and within ten seconds he had been perforated with sixteen shots.

By any reasonable definition, Detective Thompson and Officer Rongen committed the crime of attempted homicide. An internal review of the incident by the Sheriff's Office found that neither Thompson nor Rongen had asked "anything about the occupant of the room, if there were weapons present or if the person permanently lived at the residence." The officers were faulted for not taking the time to "determine a safe course of action" with four other detectives who were present."

For its part, the Department of Corrections simply ruled that Rongen's actions had followed department policies. Rongen, invoking the Fifth Amendment, had refused to cooperate with the investigation.

The King County Prosecutor decline to file criminal charges against either assailant, insisting that the shooting was justified because of a "perceived risk" to officer safety.

All police are taught to perceive all citizens as potential risks, and to put "officer safety" ahead of all other considerations. Does this mean they can shoot any of us at any time?

9822 I think there must be quotas, just like traffic tickets. Every few days now government employees need to kill or maim a few innocents to remind the common folk that we are entirely disposable in their eyes.

80202 They were guilty of breaking and entering, criminal negligence...they should have foreseen that a man asleep being confronted in the dark would react. They should be in jail.

75145 I think, the horrific story of Fouad Kaadi, when two cops tortured and killed the man who just suffered 3rd degree burns in awful car crash, because they were scared of him being covered in blood, won't be surpassed ever.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fInbGxnCd5E watch from 16:34 - the power of it is that there's nothing else but cops' own testimony.

9822 Western Washington police agencies are notorious precisely because of situations like this. The Tacoma Police Department did a "cover of darkness raid" on a suspected marijuana dealer years ago. It resulted in the death of TPD Officer John Bananola, and the ruination of the life of the startled citizen who shot him.

65110 Sun Tzu would probably say that to invade a country, the enemy must do this:

1. Infiltrate smiling puppets in high command positions
2. Disarm the people
3. Invade, using the enemy's own internal resources (national army, etc.) as much as possible

Which country is in invasion phase two? Guess...

19480 Not just shooting either...
Alan Dershowitz advocates the use of torture as a routine legal tactic. He justifies the stuff that was done at Abu Ghrabe and says that all authority figures should have the "legal" right to torture.
So all police, sheriffs, and frankly any S.O.B wearing a badge can legally torture you to get the "truth" from you...and if the situation doesn't justify that action then that's OK because we won't reprimand the officer or even question them...
So does Alan advocate some of the techniques used in Iraq? including deliberate sexual abuse of the suspects children in front of the suspect. Know any "officers" that would enjoy that sort of duty? Well they'll have a glowing career ahead of them!
Whilst the honest officers with consciences...they can join the unemployment lines.
