Lies Led To Death And Destruction In A Deadly Police Raid

PushBlack

A “no-knock” raid in Houston shows just how reckless cops can be. Houston police entered a married couple’s home with a shotgun, based on faulty information that was apparently MADE UP by one of their own officers! 

The shootout that followed quickly became deadly. 

Public safety was put at risk. And when it was all said and done, several officers were wounded and the targeted couple was killed. Now, the police are investigating their own along with the FBI! 

So who’s this officer making up information? A narcotics cop named Gerald Goines, who is having some 1,400 cases reviewed after informants DENIED supplying him with information that led to the raid. 

Already, it’s come out that in hundreds of other cases, Goines’ information didn’t add up.

Several members of the local Black community have come forward and are hoping to help expose Officer Goines. They all are hoping to have cases dismissed, receive justice, and add to a growing line of people calling him out.

People shouldn’t have to die or have a chaotic raid blow up in the face of the police before cases are carefully reviewed and police answer questions. Disasters like this can be avoided!
