David Hooks was shot in the back and head as he was lying face down on the floor during a drug raid by Laurens County deputies.
That’s according to the lawyer representing his family.
It’s been nearly four months since David Hooks was shot to death during a drug raid at his East Dublin home.
13WMAZ’s Paula Rotondo spoke to his wife, Teresa Hooks and the family’s lawyer, Mitchell Shook.
Hooks died Sept. 24 while deputies served a search warrant at his home.
They were looking for drugs, but didn’t find any.
Shook, who is representing his family, says the raid was illegal and has asked the FBI to investigate.
He says officers were looking for drugs in the home, but didn’t find any. Shook says the officers fired 17 shots inside the home and struck Hooks.
He says Hooks had four wounds, two of which he says are very problematic. Shook says that’s according to the Laurens County EMS records. He says the same information is found in the medical records from Fairview Park Hospital.
“One was to the side of the head, the other, was in his back, the back of his left shoulder, based on the evidence we see, we believe that David Hooks was face down on the ground when he received those last two shots,” says Shook.
A man is dead, his wife is a widow, the police walk away with impunity, and the judge who signed the approval lives in a nice home and will never be held responsible for anything. And the FBI won’t do anything about it, so I’m not certain why they would ask the federal government to intervene. That’s like asking the fox to guard the hen house. There isn’t a jury anywhere who will hold them accountable for murders they perpetrate because the folks are shepple.
And a woman will have to live alone the rest of her life because of this. I’ve studied Gestapo and SS tactics, and I cannot see one bit of difference between what these thugs perpetrated and running the Jews into cattle cars in Nazi Germany after guns were confiscated. These men, and all who perpetrate such heinous acts, aren’t heroes. They aren’t worthy of admiration. They aren’t suitable to teach our children to respect and obey – like the peace officers or constables of old. This is why men teach their children to be suspicious of the police today, including me.
These men are dangerous because they have no conscience.
