Newspaper story about a local officer getting arrested a few towns away. What a mild embarrasment, right? I kept reading.
Police were called at 9 p.m.
Officials entered the home and were able to talk with a woman inside, but when they tried to speak with a man in another room, he fired two gunshots through a door inside the home.
Officers took the woman outside and police from several towns including a SWAT teams from Taunton and Raynham, and negotiators with State Police responded and a perimeter was set up around the home, Taunton Police Lt. Paul Roderick told WCVB.
Neighbors were told to stay inside their homes. The man, only identified as a 51-year-old Quincy police officer, came out of the home around 1 p.m., and surrendered.
the headline to the story:
#Quincy police officer arrested after shots fired in Raynham
Oh, I see, a 15+ hour standoff with SWAT response to shots fired at other officers… is just an arrest, if you’re a middle aged white police officer.
I suppose it’s just another case of American blind justice… I mean freedom of the press… whatever, it clearly isn’t because he is a white police officer that he is being given deferential treatment by the press. Couldn’t ever be that.
