Man Who Defended His Home In SWAT Raid Going To Trial For Capital Murder In Texas

News from Texas.

KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) A new trial date has been set for a local man accused of killing a Killeen police officer in 2014.

Judge John Gauntt’s office confirms Marvin Guy’s trial has been set for March 23, 2020. This is the third time a trial date has been set.

Jury selection is set to begin with a group session on Jan. 14 and a second session on Jan. 16. An individual voir dire will take place on Feb. 3.

Guy, 52, is charged with capital murder and three counts of attempted capital murder in connection with the May 9, 2014 shooting death of Detective Charles “Chuck” Dinwiddie.

Dinwiddie and other SWAT officers were attempting to serve a “no-knock” search warrant when Guy allegedly shot Dinwiddie.

Earlier this year, Guy told a local pastor he didn’t know who was entering his home and he fired in self-defense.

He also called on police to end no-knock raids.

“Any citizen should be concerned about these no-knock raids, even the people in Killeen should come together and say these raids do not work, they don’t have a good outcome,” he said.

No drugs were found in the home.

Guy has remained in custody in the Bell County Jail.

He’s in custody because the .gov feels it has the right to deprive him of his liberties before a trial, and in this case, the charge of capital murder is an abomination.

I’ve done some searching and cannot locate much more on this, but if this is the sum total of the case against Mr. Guy, the government of Bell County, Texas, is filled with demons, gargoyles and pit vipers, including the police, who should never have conducted the raid to begin with.

Let’s cover the raid itself before going any further.  I and my readers don’t believe in the so-called “war on drugs.”  These raids, judge’s signature or not, are a violation of second and fourth amendments to the constitution.  A judge cannot sign away a right, which in this case is merely recognized by the constitution, but granted by God.  These raids are also a violation of property rights as outlined in various state statutes and codes.

If certain illicit substances are illegal, whether law enforcement loses that evidence to prove their point in court, there are better, less dangerous ways of obtaining that evidence.  Wait until no one is in the home.  Wait to effect the arrest until the suspect is in the driveway preparing to go to work.  Send your best detectives to work the problem, but busting into a man’s castle is out of the question.

And so if that’s true, he was right to shoot the police.  He says he didn’t know they were police, and unless there is undeniable evidence to the contrary, we have no indication that he’s being untruthful.  Furthermore, even if they had announced themselves as police, no one can believe them.  We have documented instances where criminals have impersonated police officers and busted into homes.  The only solution to this problem is when someone announces that they are the police, disarm yourself, lay on the floor and beg for mercy.

One may as well never have a weapon for defense of family, home and hearth to begin with under these stipulations, and thus SWAT raids violate a man’s God-given right to self defense, recognized in the second amendment.

The ledgers are full of innocent men and women killed in their own homes by police, even being shot through the door of their home, and the most dangerous time for any man in America is when the police are around.  These are circumstances no reasonable man will abide.

And yet, a presumably innocent man, whose home contained no illicit substance, and who cannot be proven to have known who was at the door or for what reason, is on trial for capital murder.  Here is a note to police officers everywhere.  You are increasingly being seen as the enemy.  It’s your own fault.  You will suffer the consequences of being seen as the enemy, and you voluntarily brought it on yourself.  You don’t have to obey unlawful commands.  You have chosen to do that all by yourselves.

Like all good cowards, the DA has no published email address.  The county attorney can be reached here.  The Killeen police department can be reached here.

    > 2014 … Marvin Guy’s trial has been set for March 23, 2020

    Sixth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America:

    “In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial…”

    I guess the question is whether Texas is simply ignoring the Constitution, or whether they have redefined “speedy” as “six years or more is speedy to us.”

    Also not that the Fed has also blown off the “public” part now that secret trials are convenient for “national security issues.”

    Amen.

    Prayers for Marvin Guy.

    A n-knock warrant is like the medieval practice of declaring a man outlaw or “outside the law”. Or like Sulla’s proscriptions of Roman citizens. It is a permission slip to kill anyone on the premises without excuse.

    I know this goes on almost everywhere, but Texans were supposed to a different breed.
