Genuinely don't want LEO hurt, but over a lawn? Gotta say that there needs to be different tactics on a person's own property. Guess we'll never know why he didn't want it cut, eh? Wasn't worth escalating into killing the guy.
He was the one who started shooting.

He was the one who escalated his lawn getting mowed and maybe a fine to agg assault.

He was entirely in control of his destiny and at any point could have chose a peaceful ending where neither he nor anyone else got hurt.

I had a shower and still smell like house fire smoke....

Xoxo to all and to all good night.

None of you guys popping off read the story.

For Austin to send out a lawn service this has been ongoing for months at least. He ignored all that contact.

Then he started shooting at the lawn mowers.
Then he set his house on fire.
Then he came out armed and he controls the whole situation right up till they decided not to let a guy with a gun, who has already fired at people leave a contained area in a neighborhood.

The police are only responding to the shots fired. There may have been issues dealing with this up till then but that's not on the police. Researching the history and the medical status is kinda difficult in these situations and would make no difference once he fired the first round.

Some of you folks let your bias over ride critical thinking skills. Shameful. Seriously.

Where some patrol vehicles have "To Protect and Serve."
The Austin Patrol Prius says "Mow Your Lawn or Else."


When the SHTF do we wonder which departments will enforce illegal edicts from their elites.

This is so Florida-like...

Austin homeowner refuses to mow lawn,
Code Enforcement sends lawn crew to mow lawn.
Homeowner starts shooting at lawn crew.
SWAT team shows up to besiege “barricaded” homeowner.
House somehow catches fire.
Homeowner is shot dead by cops.
House burns down.



Was David Chipman on scene for this? Janet Reno consulting for APD?

That's a shitty, sad situation. Sounds like the home owner had some untreated mental health issues.

FIFY.


Hey, y’all remember that guy the police shot just because he walked in to a gas station. Think it was Mike Brown or something.

Or that guy that got killed just for going to a theater dressed as the Joker? Boy, talk about some Jack boots.

All these innocent victims…I wonder how Harambe would feel about all of this.

That place east of Waco....
How long until Code Enforcement gets arrest and detention powers so they can handcuff the owners before the mowing starts?
