Police Shoot And Kill 80-Year-Old Man After Wrongfully Raiding His L.A. Home For Meth

    An 80-year-old man was shot and killed by police officers after they mistakenly thought he was cooking methamphetamine in his home.

    The slain man is Eugene Mallory, a retired engineer living in the rural fringes of Los Angeles County.

    On June 27, 2013, Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies stormed onto Mallory's property and into his house. LA County Sheriff narcotics expert Patrick Hobbs claimed he “smelled the strong odor of chemicals” coming from Mallory’s home.

    After breaking into the home, deputies claim Mallory was walking down the hallway with a gun pointed at them. Sgt. John Bones says he told Mallory to drop his gun, and when the elderly man refused to comply, they shot him. The shot killed Mallory.

    The deputies have since revised their story -- they were forced to do so after puddles of blood found on Mallory’s mattress indicated he was shot while lying on his bed.

    Investigators found yet another problem with the deputy’s story after listening to an audio recording of the event. Rather than shooting Mallory after he refused to drop his gun, deputies shot Mallory first and then ordered him to drop the gun.

    When it was all said and done, Sgt. Bones shot Mallory six times. Mallory’s gun was found on his bedside table without one shot fired.

    The raid turned up no evidence of methamphetamines. Mallory’s widow, Tonya Pate, filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department.

    Fuckin trigger happy pigs. Shitty police work along with no discipline of a firearm, not to mention the home invasion tactics of a fuckin old man who had nothing to do with drugs at all. i hope they are all brought to the justice they deserve. not so much here but when they meet their maker.

    i wonder why pigs have such a shitty reputation with people of this country. bunch of bullies that prey on weaker people. "smelled chemicals"? Probably smelled windex from the man cleaning his windows or something, or from him working on a hobby due to his engineering background. idiots. the more i get older the more i really cant stand police.

    "Protect and Serve" my ass. they protect their job by the number of arrests they can get each month and they serve their corrupt police chief.

    When was the last time you saw a pig and felt happy to see them? their is a good reason why everyones ass puckers when a cop gets behind you driving or anywhere else. cause of all the stories you have heard about innocent people getting fucked with and screwed by the pigs

    "thought he was cooking methamphetamine in his home"

    To me this states "the hell with getting a warrant, why should we? It's much easier to claim the manufacture of methamphetamine could be smelled". Given the nature and danger posed the occupants and others, "Exigent Circumstance" exist and no warrant need to enter.

    Mr Mallory would most likely be alive if the raiding officers had followed the the laws they are paid to enforce. But it has come all too common to circumvent the 4th Amend by meeting the requirements for one of the narrowly defined exception to the warrant requirement required under the 4th Amend. Many times the police create exigent circumstance, or fabricate one out of thin are (the smell of meth cooking)

    I'm wondering whether the many thousands of veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, (around 40% returned with mental health disorders) recruited by the police have something to do with this spate of bad cop killings.

    OMG This is absolutely absurd!!!!! And with no evidence even, I hope they charge that cop with murder, this is just sad and uncalled for type of police brutality that gives the good cops a bad name.

    That cop should be charged with murder and the other officers in the house should be charged as an

    accessory for falsifying evidence.

    Unfortunately they will all be cleared and policing will go on with more and more innocent people being killed.

    that is a very true statement and sums it up in a nutshell.

    i saw this one story here about a cop that was going around and pulling people over so he could stick his fingers up there rear with no glove sometimes. other pigs knew about it too and covered shit up. long story short, the pig i got one year or something small like that and the other pigs didnt get anytime.

    can you imagine what they would do to someone like me, a non pig that was doing that shit to people? they would probably give me life with no parole.

    Even if it is proved that the cops did jump the gun and shoot this man before telling him to drop his gun, I doubt any of them would be charged with any type of crime. Probably the worst that will come of this is they could possibly be suspended from the force with or without pay. If they did shoot this guy without him being an obvious threat then I would consider them murderers and they should be charged as such.

    I am seeing a disturbing trend, cops all over the united states are killing unarmed people or people they could have stunned, it is disgusting. They should be tried for murder like anyone else. Losing your badge is not enough for a cold blooded murder. If i did this, I would immediatly be put in jail for 25 to life, WHY THE FUCK SHOULD COPS BE ABLE TO GET AWAY WITH THIS BULL SHIT!!!! They will rot in hell as deserved. I hoped charges follow, it is a growing problem and as they continue to get away with it, more cops are killing because no punishment follows. ROT IN HELL YOU DIRTY, POWER TRIPPING BASTARDS!!!
