Okay, this cop deserves a lawsuit
#1
One of the worst cop violence stories I have seen in awhile. As far as the info shows, this deserves a huge lawsuit. And I almost always try to give cops the benefit of the doubt.

Quote:watched two deputies escalate the situation and needlessly kill a man,” Paradis told the Statesman.

The family’s version of events begins with Yantis being informed of the accident around 6:45 p.m. An Adams County dispatcher told the rancher he’d have to go down to the highway and put down his 2,500-pound black Gelbvieh bull, whose leg was injured by the crash and who was becoming agitated. As Yantis was making the necessary arrangements to take care of the animal, the deputies began shooting at the bull, but failed to kill it, instead reportedly hitting it in the gut, prolonging its misery and causing the bull to become even more distressed.

Yantis finally got his .204-caliber rifle and stood about 2 feet from the bull, prepared to shoot it when “one cop turned around and grabbed [Yantis’] shoulder and jerked him backward,” according to Paradis. The rifle’s barrel was still pointed at the ground at this point, the family contends, though Paradis does allow that the gun may have fired, perhaps accidentally. A deputy said later that he had been grazed by a bullet, according to a family friend also present, who contends he didn’t see any “blood,” “torn thread” or “powder burn.” The official statement on the incident also alleges that one of the deputies suffered a minor injury.

That discharge prompted the deputies to turn their guns on Yantis, shooting him in the chest and abdomen, ultimately killing him, the family said. When Donna and Paradis approached Yantis, the deputies “threw us on the middle of Highway 95, searched us and handcuffed us, and wouldn’t let us go take care of Jack,” Donna said. Paradis said one of the deputies pointed a gun at his head.

During the incident, Donna suffered a heart attack. She was in critical condition for several days before being upgraded to serious.

The bull was left to bleed out on the road, and police ignored their pleas to humanely kill the animal, the family said.

Until I see video, or hard evidence.... There are no "facts" here, just an eyewitnesses opinion. To the officers, I'm sure it looked much differently. Now we're into a "he said, she said", scenario.

I would like to see a video of the cop when the guy had his rifle. You just can't grab somebody with a gun. This is out west.....cops should know how to deal with loose cattle and old ranchers.

Again, maybe they do. Maybe, they shot and killed the old guy in cold blood? No facts, here. Naturally, the family is going to blame the cop. 'Tis the season.

Don't hold your breath.

Quote:. . . . . . . The deputies were wearing body cameras, Adams County Sheriff Ryan Zollman told the Statesman on Thursday, though it’s unclear whether they recorded the incident. A dash camera in the deputies’ vehicle was not turned on, Zollman said. The investigation is currently in the hands of the Idaho State Police. . . . .
I don't suffer from insanity.

They tried this at the Bundy ranch. Much to their surprise they were outgunned and couldn't twist the narrative.

Yes, they do, too. But they are certainly getting the book thrown at them, which is good. It's a tragedy.

But 64 year old ranchers are people, too.....
