BURLESON COUNTY, TX — Tragedy struck when police pursued an aggressive no-knock, no-announce SWAT raid on a marijuana user with no history of violence in his record. One deputy was shot when the homeowner picked up a rifle to protect his family from what he thought were home invaders. The officer’s life is over and the homeowner will now face trial that could put him in prison for a long time because of a confrontation that never needed to happen.
