The gentleman nearing retirement age was shot by deputies unarmed.
Lying in a hospital bed the night after he was shot by Escambia County sheriffs deputies in his own front yard, Roy Middleton only had one question: Why?
Middleton, 60, of the 200 block of Shadow Lawn Lane in Warrington, was shot in the leg about 2:42 a.m. Saturday while trying to retrieve a cigarette from his mothers car in the driveway of their home.
The Escambia County Sheriffs Office declined to comment on the incident Saturday.Burglary is not a capital crime. It it hard for me to understand why officers continue to use violent force against non violent citizens. This is the state of affairs that we get when security roams unsupervised. The Stanford Experiment and historical acts before and after show that when the security aspect of society is given free will they invariably become a threat to thesafety of those around them.
