Harris deputy sues family who called 911 for help

A Harris County sheriff's deputy is suing the family of a man he shot and killed when assisting on a call last December, saying they failed to warn emergency personnel and law enforcement that the man was a "violent threat."

Deputy Brady Pullen is seeking $200,000 from relatives of Kemal Yazar, who authorities said confronted EMS workers who responded to a 911 call at a Katy home. The man's wife, authorities said then, had told EMS that Yazar was acting irrationally.

Two deputies, including Pullen, who were called to help struggled with Yazar and used a Taser on him, officials said then. Both deputies fired shots at him, killing him. Pullen was injured and taken to a hospital for treatment of a concussion, cuts and a bite.

The Dec. 30 incident occurred at the home on Shiloh Mist owned by Camina Figueroa, who is solely named in the lawsuit. Pullen said Figueroa failed to "adequately warn others that her resident or guest Kemal Yazar posed a violent threat to others."

So he's suing the family for failing to notify somebody that he may have to actually do the job that he signed up to do? What's next, soldier sues government for failing to tell him he may get shot at when deployed to a warzone?
The law? The law is a human institution...

He'll probably lose but having responded to some under-reported calls, I understand where he's coming from.

If you tell the police that someone is acting violently and is high on bath salts (remember the news stories) the response will be different than "I have a guest in my home that refuses to leave."

Poplawski's mother was criticized for failing to warn the police of his violence. It may have made a difference.
He was the sort of person who stood on mountaintops during thunderstorms in wet copper armour shouting "All the Gods are bastards."

It's not like he was first on the scene going in blind. If he was assisting EMS, he should have had a clue.

I suggest a compromise:

Brady Pullen can have his judgement (if he can collect).

On condition that he wear a tee-shirt, 24x7 at all times when he's out in public and visible to all. It should read:

"PUSSY"
