Late Thursday afternoon the Pima County Sheriff’s Department, responding to public records requests, released video and documents related to the shooting of Jose Guerena. Guerena died on May 5 when a SWAT team arrived at his Pima County home to serve a search warrant. The SWAT team’s attorney has said that when the team broke down the door, they saw Guerena standing there with a rifle and that he said, “I’ve got something for you.” The team then opened fire, expending 71 rounds and hitting Guerena 60 times.

Guerena’s wife Vanessa told KGUN9 News that she and her husband never knew the men breaking into her home were SWAT officers. SWAT attorney Mike Storie has said that the team came in with sirens blaring and properly identified themselves.

    So if a guy is standing there with a gun do you want them to use harsh language or protect themselves using the resources that you help pay 4. Way to go pd judgment on the streets. Although this is just another way for trash to sue you and get rich. The only argument is that the victim thought he was being attacked by intruders, gimme a break most intruders don’t use a siren and yell police. You guys are fucking retarded.

    That has to be some record for a PD to get 60 out of 71 rounds on target. Usually it would be 0 out of hundreds or thousands of rounds.

    And sadly these morons were probably trained by contracted “MILITARY OPERATORS”.

    Attorney Scileppi and Mrs. Guerena I hope and pray that you sue the shit out of TPD and get both monetary and criminal convictions against these bastards! Do not hesitate. If your husband is innocent, then you owe him his honor. These fuckers, these well-equipped, well-dressed cowardly bullies should get what they deserve!

    Just like a bunch of dirty cops can’t admit they messed up. Just like when Marines have to be held accountable for our actions in combat and have to follow our rules of engagement these poor excuses for police officers need the same treatment. NO EXCUSES!

    This article wreaks of feces straight from the attorney’s mouth. You swines murdered a Marine in his home. You waited an hour to collaborate your bullshit story. Your department worships you. Your attorney pays for his Porsche defending you. But many of us view you as the snakes you are. You killed a Marine who never fired at you. Guess what happens if you bust into my house?! I hope you all go to the prisons where you belong! Or even better.
