The man who was murdered is 33 year old John Livingston. He was shot and killed in the early morning hours as police were conducting an assault investigation.
The cops were not actually looking for Livingston, and the entire situation could have easily been avoided if they simply came back with a warrant like Livingston requested… which is his constitutional right.
Livingston’s roommate, Clayton Carroll was interviewed by WNCN and explained that his friend was was shot multiple times by the police.
According to Carroll, the cops came knocking on the door at about 3:30 am as they were looking for someone who allegedly lived there before. When the cops asked Livingston if they could search his home, Livingston simply asserted his constitutional right that no, “not without a search warrant”.
Instead of respecting the man’s rights and abiding by the law, Carroll explained that “The cop kicked in the door, got on top of him, started slinging him around beating him…”
Other witnesses went on record as explaining how the cops then began spraying them with pepper spray and using a taser during their murderous assault.
Although the cops were being overtly brutal, they say that Livingston was not even fighting back but rather trying to prevent them from hurting him any further which is a normal reaction from anyone who is being attacked.
This led to the father being shot to death.
The officers involved have been placed on administrative leave, but their names have not been released. You can watch more below;
