cops law enforcment la los angeles marijuana raidBy Phillip Smith

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies shot and killed an armed 80-year-old man as they served a search warrant on a marijuana grow operation in a remote part of the county early Thursday morning. The as yet unnamed man becomes the 19th person to die in US domestic drug law enforcement operations so far this year, and the fourth in the past week.

According to NBC Los Angeles, deputies were serving a “narcotics” search warrant at the multi-unit rural property in the desert community of Littlerock at 7:30 a.m. Lt. Dave Dolson told the TV station deputies entered the home through an unlocked front door, and one deputy fired when they encountered a man armed with a handgun. The man, who may have been the property owner, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Later Thursday afternoon, the Sheriff’s Department released a statement on the killing.

“When deputies approached a rear bedroom at the location, they encountered an 80-year-old male who was armed with a semi-automatic handgun. The suspect pointed the handgun at the deputies and a deputy-involved shooting occurred,” the statement read.

Deputies recovered the gun, marijuana, and growing equipment at the home where the man was shot. Residents who lived in other units on the property were detained, but later released.

The shooting will be investigated separately by several agencies, including the offices of the Los Angeles County District Attorney and Coroner, and the Sheriff’s Homicide and Internal Affairs bureaus.

    Bad policies/laws not bad cops. Cops were doing their job. Now if the 80 year old man was unarmed then that would have been a different story.

    • Mike

      Doing their job could just as easily be knocking on the front door at a decent hour and handing somebody a warrant. It’s somewhere there in the Bill of Rights. I know “acting like the king’s men” sure isn’t. There’s no need to excuse sloppy ass police work — or the ridiculous militarization of the police who are now trained to see “us” as them and “them” as us.

      Or should Americans just get a target tattooed on their foreheads at birth to help the bums aim?

      • Johnny Bloomington

        Fair enough but I could also see a stuborn old man saying “the man’s after me.” Don’t jump to any conclusions from just what you’ve read off the weed blog. Maybe the cops are in the wrong here.

        • Mike

          The war on marijuana has led to lots of sloppy police work.I have kin who are cops and have known a few myself over the years. Some good, some bad, just like any other group in society. As a whole, though, many police have taken the demonization of large parts of our society that goes along with a war on ourselves as license to do any kind of crap they feel like.

          Frankly, the police have a lot of repair work to do once we all get this marijuana thing behind us. Incidents like this don’t help. They’ve lost the war, so if I was them, I’d be figuring out how to adjust my attitude to fit the reality that people will no longer tolerate this kind of abusive, half-witted, unsafe, and just plain obnoxious behavior. We need reconciliation, not revenge.

          • John

            But if he plugged the Cop, I would be applauding. Lived in L.A. over 20 yrs, the Cops are terrorists with badges.

        • Uwe Kupietz

          i agree with you. let’s know the whole truth. did they say they were the police. did the man try to resist. did he even hear the them. it is wrong to think that every cop out there is a bloodthirsty killer. which from what i’ve read here, about 90% of you think. bottom line here is the that whole thing was a tragedy.

          • RealityAlwaysBites

            Bottom line is some drooling government psychopath decided to commit treason and wage war on fellow citizens, the pity is the citizen wasn’t quicker on the draw to give the traitor exactly what he deserved…. a bullet between the eyes.

      • RealityAlwaysBites

        I always have wondered if every time the gestapo psychopaths knocked on a door if they had been met with a couple of shotgun blasts through the door. Would have they run out of thugs to knock on doors.

    • heymrpaul

      So, what you are saying Johnny is that you are willing to blindly and unquestioningly accept the official police version that the man was both armed and pointing the gun at cops because… they told us so. Right?

      • Johnny Bloomington

        I was merely adding another possible view point. Sorry I should have said fuck the police right?

        • schmack_the_knife

          I wish that poor old dude would have blown that cop’s brains out and took him down with him. The have no right under the US Constitution to invade his property like that. He was only defending himself. Stupid pricks with their paramilitary toys. They probably went home and jerked off after the raid.

          • MichaelLust

            Then two would be dead, schmack, and the general public would say the old man had it coming. I understand your sentiment… but killing a cop wouldn’t have helped anyone.

          • RealityAlwaysBites

            One less parasitic psychopath is always good for mankind. Only a psycho or a traitor wages war on fellow citizens.

          • Smarter Than You

            Actually they 100% had the backing of the US Constitution to do it. It’s called a search warrant. They had one. According to the actual Constitution they were in the right to be in his house. You might want to actually read it before you try to use it in an argument…

          • RealityAlwaysBites

            Since only a true drooling psychopath would choose to murder over a plant. Yeah fuck the psycho’s! Too bad the ole guy hesitated, a couple fewer psychopaths on earth is always good for mankind.

        • http://disqus.com/notspicoli/ notSpicoli

          I think that we can all agree that anytime someone is killed in the execution of a search warrant, we are not talking about a success. The idea is to execute the warrant, not the suspect.

      • Scott Watkins

        Wrong, Johnny Lawlover. Judgement and prudence are always tantamount in standard police procedure. Their judgement was poor to say the least, especially in this type of scenario, which was unnecessary in the first place.

        • Johnny Bloomington

          Johnny Lawlover, you funny man. Let me go get my pitchforks and Fire. You people need to realize that not everything is so black and white.

    • He Wolf

      ANY ONE, coming into your house wile you are resting what will they find? You dam right some one protecting themselves..

      • RealityAlwaysBites

        Just don’t make the terminal mistake of not shooting everyone of the traitorous psychopaths.

    • Thomas Lee Howell

      wrong. Illegal entry then murder is NOT a cop’s job.

      • Johnny Bloomington

        Look it’s not like I think cops do the greatest of job here but people need to look at things from all angles. Illegal entry? They had a search warrant. Murder? Maybe.

        • RealityAlwaysBites

          Greatest Job???? the murdering psychopaths wage war on fellow citizens….. they need a quick trial and a firing squad on national TV.

          • Johnny Bloomington

            Take a bong hit, wait a sec then reread what you just said.

    • RealityAlwaysBites

      With the 100,000 laws on the book the psychopathic parasites can choose to enforce another couple laws until the clowns in DC wake up to the 20th century.

      Only a true drooling psychopath could murder someone over a plant. Sorry but no way out of the facts.

  • Angry

    Messed up and extremely UNACCEPTABLE!

  • Tiger Weedz

    The worst crimes committed in the drug war are committed by the government & the police fighting it. In waging this war on drugs many civilians have been hurt & many law enforcement people too. But in all the years of this backward misguided strife known as the war on drugs I have yet to see any drug hurt a bit. They’re all still around, easier to get than ever. The way prohibition fails on any subject we should prohibit learning. We’d have a genius selling books & educating children on each & every corner.

  • Paul

    The old man probably picked the gun up because he heard someone coming in. I find it hard to believe they gave him sufficient opportunity to lower his weapon. One more example of why prohibition is bad for society.

    • RealityAlwaysBites

      Also another reason its bad to give psychopaths a badge to hide behind. Only a psychopath can murder someone over a plant.

  • Sean

    This is why I support legalization over “decriminalization”. Decriminalization is the new prohibition. Marijuana is “decriminalized” in California and it still cost this dear old man his life.

    • Veronica Salazar

      Marijuana is not decriminalized in California. Medicinal Marijuana is legal if you have a medical reason to and have a prescription from a doctor.

    • Thomas Lee Howell

      decriminalization means zero. smokers are fined then jailed for a second offense. This is so whatever state they are in can gouge the shit out of smokers and make tons of cash. same with over taxing pot. What a stupid way to make it legal. Put the same tax on pot as they do on cigarettes and booze. period. Stop these bastards now. Want o see it really legal. Post adds anywhere and everywhere you see booze ads or cigarette ads. THEN and only then will we see any light at the end of this dark tunnel. I urge anyone with the ability to make posters to glue them everywhere they advertise booze a cigarettes. Start today.

    They enter a mans home in the early morning with a search warrant and enter the home quickly, catching the homeowner off-guard and wounding/killing him. This is modus operandi for ALL task forces, and it is tantamount to setting up a murder/wounding. And we read and see it ALL THE TIME!!! This is police work? This is standard policy? Then it needs changing, NOW!! They choose these odd times on purpose; to get the chance at that drug of THEIR choice, ADRENALINE!! They know that they could have served that warrant at noon, with a simple show-up and/or monitoring of the home. A very good sheriff actually does this, and pulls them over and quietly and cleanly arrests them. No fuss, no muss, and no death. This was and is 100% avoidable. EVERY officer involved should be charged with accessory, and the shooter should be charged with murder. Period. This is police work gone terribly WRONG!

      Psychopaths need their thrill kills, they get all weird and jittery otherwise.

  • THEE420

    yup fuck the police

  • Jim

    Does anyone know the name of the man that was murdered by the cops?

  • Irie

    I used to live in Littlerock shitty TWEEKER town. My gpa lived in pearblossom, 70 or so they raided his house. I was 18, they had SO MANY PSYCHO COPS there, it was nuts. Leave the elderly ALONE my gpa was going thru crazy chemo and my uncle took the rap for him! LA cops are DIRTY! They also broke my dads leg, he sued, he WON!!!!!!!!!! FU LAPD!

    • Smarter Than You

      The LAPD doesn’t work in Littlerock. They had nothing to do with it.

      • TJ

        LA County what is the difference they are all out of line ALWAYS.

  • Keif

    Lets hope it not the old guy from the TV Show”Weed Country” that old man was so freakin cool,. sure he had a gun, damn police state, dude probably all freaked out someone in his house and so you guys killed him over growing weed?? Prayers go out to his family….

  • dgand

    The madness must stop.
    Another citizen has lost his life.
    Over what? A harmless plant that never killed nobody….

    My heart is sad again.
    My hat is off again.
    My head is lowered yet again for another life lost. Another casulity of this foolish war.
    When will all this madness end.

  • Steve Canon

    Ever hear of a ‘throw down’ gun?

    • Midnight Moses

      otherwise known as a “drop gun”, kept by cops in case they need to justify a bad shoot like this one…

  • Marian Campo

    This madness must stop ….the police officers should not have shot the man in his own home if he felt he was in danger and was supposed to be defending himself ……..I hope that the officer who shot this man never experiences a restfull nights sleep as long as he lives!

    • jimi

      i thought the had bean bad guns and tazers what a waist of money for those non used tools that should used, more,they could pumped a couple bean bags he would drop his gun. and they would find out that he had his hearing aid, on the night stand? that is probley the case,legalize it stop hurting people,of your own kind,we just want to smoke legal, cigeretts should be criminalised for thay have killed many,and still, if they were not a drug, ,people would not smoke them, cause and effect,
      if alchol wasnt a drug we would not drink it,i think the poliice men to have a smoke session before they hit the street,they might eat all the donuts and laugh at people doing minor things,to bad for the old guy, he was I am sure just trying to help himself and his friends to a escape from things such as these,the dog now this ,it will never stop unless you free the people ,and let them smoke themselves to death who cares. >}

    • RealityAlwaysBites

      I hope he gets a truly nasty disease and wastes away over a couple of decades of agony.

      Since only a true psychopath could destroy lives and murder over a plant he deserves every possible evil.

  • Chuck Peyton

    shoot are get shot which would you do??????

    • dgand

      We live in tough times i believe. You get told to leave your home because of a flood then return and find you’ve been looted. Someone knochs on your door then you find yourself in the middle of a home invasion deal. You go grocery shopping and get shot in a hold-up attempt. You live on a street that ain’t safe to walk down at night. Ohh.

      Now to the war on weed. They bust in with guns drawn looking for a plant that ain’t never killed anybody. A plant that has proven medical value. A plant that has made criminals out of plain old normal people.

      Worst thing here is how stupid all this business really is. If people only knew just how dumb they are this wouldn’t of happened in the first place. It should not of happened.

      This is not worth killing for. This is not worth hating someone for. This should not be a life or death thing. This is a non-addictive plant that has proven medical value. Nothing more, nothing less…. its not something you go with guns after!!!!!!

      The war has made it like this. That is what needs changed. That is what will fix all this stuff. Imo of course.

  • Douglas Eldredge

    if someone comes in un announced, id pull my gun too

    • jimi

      or if he had his hearings off i mean he is 80 probley had tons of people trying to rip him off . shits going to hit the fan soon!!

  • Tyler Durdan III

    It’s a shame, So we gonna just sit here and bitch about it or we going to do something??

    • WarrenOsborn

      They are just going to sit there and complain

    • Thomas Lee Howell

      Like what?

    • HaveSomeSense

      What makes a cop become a cop? Usually it is an over-inflated ego combined with self righteous mentality that exaggerates their own moral value and self opinion. They think they should rule over and police the ‘lesser people’. This by definition is pathological psychopathic behavior. This is why we let them carry firearms, we know they are willing to kill senior citizens and thus they can be aligned with the corporate evils which drive our government.

      • RealityAlwaysBites

        psychopaths are the only ones able to destroy lives over a plant.

  • Paul Osborne

    Um… you broke into someone’s house and woke him up at 7:30 AM. I would have at least pulled at gun… The guy was prolly scared for his life… This is what cops are supposed to give their life for… Or has everyone forgot that…Don’t sign up otherwise… At least the old man was smart enough not to pull the trigger…. WTF?!?

    • RealityAlwaysBites

      If he had pulled the trigger enough times he would be alive and there would be a bunch of vacancies at the psychopath employment agency.

  • Robert Dewayne King

    “The shooting will be investigated separately by several agencies, including the offices of the Los Angeles County District Attorney and Coroner, and the Sheriff’s Homicide and Internal Affairs bureaus.”
    I would like to see how this plays out , Keep the spotlight on these cockroaches !!

    • Thomas Lee Howell

      all the criminals who made this happen to start with will investigate this trigger happy murderer and give him a medal for DUTY.

  • robb32

    lesseee, armed men burst into an old man’s house, he fraws his weapon to protect himself not knowing who they were and they kill him. They should be proud of themselves, and the men at the top share responsibility for putting this deputy in this position. God sees all, and in the end, judges all for their deeds

    • jimi

      he probley had his hearing aids off

    • Thomas Lee Howell

      Like he saw them raid an old man and kill him. what god would that be?

  • Rooster

    It’s a good thing those officers protected that bad old man from those violent plants….I’m so glad my children can look forward to being protected and guarded by men of such caliber.

  • jami

    those cops shall be judged by the same god as all of us

    • Thomas Lee Howell

      You mean the same one that let them kill an old man. Hope not.

    • RealityAlwaysBites

      You mean the imaginary cowardly scumbag that watches evil triumph 100% of the time?

  • Dan

    Bad story. if I was the cop I would shoot also. you never know, it could have went down the other way. with the old man shooting the cop, he would be sitting in jail on death row the rest of his life. imo the cop helped him out a little. just saying.

    • kycountry

      wrong Dan. the cops should have knocked on the friggin door…..

    • Matao

      So basically what your saying is killing the man was the best approach? Anyone breaks into your place you would probably grab a weapon and try to defend yourself.Right? You have a gun. Let’s say he has a bat. Do you think he will fight back? No he wouldn’t. Same sitaution here. He was outnumbered lots of guns and bodies vs one. I don’t see how you can say you would do the same as the cop.

      • Thomas Lee Howell

        cause he’s a moron like the cop that shot the old man for a victimless crime. Stalking a pot grower. Send that bastard to prison for killing an old man. Today.

    • TJ

      Helped him out! you are twisted maybe someone should help you out.

    • Thomas Lee Howell

      No the old man would have severe lead poisoning fro the 2-30 trigger happy s.o.b.s shooting him. Wake the f up!

      • WarrenOsborn

        To be making the same points I am and yet still cussing me proves you are one dumb son of a bitch. Good for you in making headway in the MJ movement. If you had any brains in your head you would be seeking like minded people as allies not trying to make enemies of them. This is especially true of people like myself who would bash your damn head if you cussed me in person like you are doing online. I will now tell you about some of the times I put some one of those Fascist punks in their place. The last time was with one I went to high school with. He started busting my chops for something I said online. When I pushed back he started saying “Ha ha you can’t hit me I’m a reserve deputy.” I replied “I don’t care how many guns, badges, and judges you hide behind. Keep pushing me and I will come push on your damned face. He did not want to play anymore. Another one was driving 55 in a 75 on the turnpike and staying side by side with an 18 wheeler struggling to climb a hill. After I got all I could stand of this I stood on my horn to get that retard to get out of my way. When I passed him he showed me his badge and I showed him my finger. He did not want to play anymore. I have a few more examples like these but I have proven my point so I won’t go that far with this. My point is if you show them you are not intimidated by them and can match them man for man they will back down every time. I am in Tulsa OK. Agree to meet me somewhere and we can continue this in person AND YOU WILL LOSE because when I fight I don’t quit until I win. Furthermore I never said anything about solving this issue by votes. You are right in that respect votes don’t count. But fighting back does.

        • WarrenOsborn

          I have two black belts (Hapkido and Aikido) so this might be a good fight after all, my favorite kind. It’s not much fun to beat up on someone when there is no challenge to it.

    • RealityAlwaysBites

      If he was a good shot there would have been a few less psychopaths waging war on fellow citizens.

  • Matao

    This is just wrong. Most growers probably do smoke and maybe he was waking up from a nice late night smoke session. Hearing many footsteps in your house around you probably made him paranoid out of his mind and being the smart grower he is he grabs for protection. He obviously was pointing at them because he probably didn’t know it was cops and my guess there’s about 20-30 police officers going into the basement why the hell would he shoot. He was shocked. And even if he did shoot the the police put on these vest that are suppose to protect them from bullets. He is not getting far with a semi automatic. The war on drugs is just wrong. The deaths are certainly not needed. Especially on the safest substance on this planet. Its time to wake up law enforcement.

  • Angel

    Did they identify themselves as police officers? And even still, you know how many robberies take place with said perpetrators impersonating law enforcement serving a felony warrant?? SMDH

  • Smarter Than You

    They forgot to mention that he pointed the gun at the cops…who definitely identified themselves as law enforcement and said that they had a warrant.

    • Thomas Lee Howell

      No they came in through an unlocked door. Did you actually read this article?

      • Thomas Lee Howell

        Search warrant was immediately invalid when they ENTERED through an unlocked door anyway.

    • RealityAlwaysBites

      Yeah and if a cops mouth is moving he is lying so who really gives a damn what they said they said.

  • Smarter Than You

    Considering you’re all bitching about how weed should be legal and it’s a ridiculous part of the war on drugs I’m gonna go a head and assume that you were all to high to show up to vote when it was on the CA ballot?? It could be legal in this state, but you all forgot to vote…or you’re fellons…or here illegally…

    • Thomas Lee Howell

      Dumb as a brick- votes mean zero. Offices and positions are bought and paid for. get a F in clue yahoo.

      • Pat Cowdin

        Our votes meant something in Colorado, and Washington too. And they’ll probably mean something (finally) to the Feds when a few more states, hopefully including California, do the same.

  • AcidicLlama

    When someone wants to grow a plant that brings no harm to anyone and looks beautiful is enough reason to imprison them or invade their home is ridiculous, whereas certain other plants that grow all over the country that also happen to be poisonous (and psychoactive) are still legal to own/grow. The fact that they are poison still doesn’t completely deter people from trying to get a high off them and dying….it’s time to keep everyone safe and just make federal changes.

    • RealityAlwaysBites

      Only true psycho’s can destroy someones life over a plant.

  • Brown Sugar

    So many of these stories. Cops kill a senior citizen , beyond being sad. This man lived a very long life just to be taken out by some trigger happy cops. Now, if he was molesting children, they would have put a protective vest on him and guarded him from the world. But, he had marijuana. The worlds worse crime. Give me a break . Our laws stink big time.

    • WarrenOsborn

      So quit complaining about it and stand up and do something about it.

      • Thomas Lee Howell

        Stand up and do WHAT? Goofball. Votes mean zero. Do something? ha h aha yeah right.

        • WarrenOsborn

          Hey Jackass, if you can call me “Goofball” I can call you Jackass. Do something like when you see or hear about shit like this happening, lay hands on them and do likewise to them. That is how you end this shit and it is the only way it will end. So, stand up and do something.

          • Thomas Lee Howell

            What a maroon. Stand up to whom? Obviously you live in a foreign country. The USA could not care less about votes ort opinions from you or me. Jackass. Haha that is original. How the f do you know what I have done in the MJ movement? The first thing I’d tell you IF you have any sense at all is that I am one of the MAIN proponents who helped PTSD military people in Colorado able to get medical MJ without losing veteran benefits. Get a clue. Sometimes it is better to know whom you address and what the f you are talking about.

            Sadly psychopathic parasites like 99% of LE is don’t play fair, they lie, they murder and they always shoot in the back.

            Large armed groups of cowards are very difficult to fight on your own.

          • WarrenOsborn

            Right! On all points

        • WarrenOsborn

          You ran your punk fucking mouth to the wrong guy. You better hope we never meet in person because I will beat your face to mush.

  • Dave Rogers

    I’m skeptical that the man was armed and that he confronted cops. Since judges aren’t worth squat, the only way we can ever have oversight over police would be by video camera. The government expects private citizens to be ok with being filmed everywhere, it’s only fair that all police actions be videoed.

    • Thomas Lee Howell

      They murdered an 80 year old pot grower. I am sure this brave MF er is now crowing about how the old man HAD A GUN so he shot his ass.

      • RealityAlwaysBites

        Hopefully the grower has friends and family that can return payment with interest to the psychopathic murdering traitor that decided to destroy someones life over a plant.

  • Dick Herts

    This is not the first old guy shot during a raid. Anybody think that a 80 yo guy maybe was hard of hearing and all he knew was the commotion of being raided ¿ I’ve been raided. Its a hectic scary ordeal.. I can not imagine being 80 and having the para military jack booted thugs blast into my privacy. May these cops rot in hell.

  • Jo

    Law enforcement officers who agree to go on these raids and/or enforce these unconstitutional regulations onto the bodies of free citizens will get whats coming to them.

    predicated on citizenship within any governmental jurisdiction.

    Whereas;

    Unalienable is that which cannot be GIVEN away, a right is that which cannot be TAKEN away.
    Past generations of citizens and their elected officials have no authority to deprive current or future
    generations of rights current or not yet enumerated!

    Whereas;

    The “War on Drugs” is beyond undue imposition to the point of a crime against humanity.
    Will the war on people who choose by free will to alter their body chemistry with natural substances
    be over when there are 4, 6 or 12 million Americans in prison, dying of AIDS, TB, violence or old age?

    The Nazi’s used the war on Jews as an excuse to build a police state.
    The federal, state, county and city governments are using the war on drugs as an excuse to build a police state.

    Whereas;

    The Ninth Amendment clearly states…

    The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights,
    shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

    Therefore;

    It is the Right of the People to control the chemistry, mind altering or not, of one’s own body.
    The right to posses, share, cultivate, distribute & engage in commerce of any and all natural substances.
    As-well as the right to free, impartial information on all substances this right may refer.
    This right shall exist without the undue imposition of law or administrative order.
