Cop Under Investigation After Shooting Unarmed Man in Walmart While Off-Duty

Cassius Methyl | The Anti Media

On Tuesday in Huntsville Alabama, an off duty cop shot a man in the butt in Walmart, endangering the lives of civilians around him, in pursuit of this person with not so outstanding ‘outstanding warrants’. Thumbnail credit: screen shot from whnt.com

He recognized the man with warrants , David Horton (looks to be in his early twenties, age not specified), and tried to make an arrest.

David fled the scene, and the cop pursued him, shooting him in the butt in an area full of citizens who could have been shot.

He was then transported to a hospital and is being ‘guarded by police’. The shot was not life threatening.

The cop was most definitely not warranted to shoot at him, especially in Walmart. He claims his gun accidentally discharged.

The cop is currently under investigation by his chief of police, who appears to be determined to find out what actually happened here.

Hopefully he will lose his job and never be able to endanger innocent people ever again (or shoot at people wanted by the police state for not very serious crimes, though the crimes of David Horton are currently unknown).

It is known though, that the man shot in the ass did not kill anyone, so to try to use lethal force to put him in the cold death grip of the police state seems highly immoral.

The cop is currently under investigation by his own department, and it seems that Madison County police chief Cecil Moses has a will to find out what actually happened, perhaps because these days when police mess up, it is widely reported on by the independent media.

Moses says the video of the incident is being investigated, as well as what kind of gun the cop used, whether it is likely to be accidentally discharged or not, ect.

Maybe the cop will be fired, maybe not. After all, it is still the inherently corrupt police state, locking people in cages for victimless crimes.

Please share this with anyone who could have their perspectives broadened by this info, especially if they don’t usually see stories like this.

Since you’re here…

…We have a small favor to ask. Fewer and fewer people are seeing Anti-Media articles as social media sites crack down on us, and advertising revenues across the board are quickly declining. However, unlike many news organizations, we haven’t put up a paywall because we value open and accessible journalism over profit — but at this point, we’re barely even breaking even. Hopefully, you can see why we need to ask for your help. Anti-Media’s independent journalism and analysis takes substantial time, resources, and effort to produce, but we do it because we believe in our message and hope you do, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting and finds value in it helps fund it, our future can be much more secure. For as little as $1 and a minute of your time, you can support Anti-Media. Thank you. Click here to support us
