From their page: On September 23rd, David Hooks was killed in his own home by Laurens County Sheriff’s deputies. The drug task force was conducting a SWAT raid based on a tip provided by the man who had burglarized Mr. Hooks’ property a few days earlier. This knock-and-announce warrant was served at 11 p.m. When Mr. Hooks’ wife heard vehicles and saw men in camouflage and hoods in their yard, she woke her husband, who took his shotgun to investigate the intruders. Without even raising or pointing his gun, he was shot by multiple members of the Laurens County drug task force/special response team.

Join concerned citizens from across Georgia as we seek justice for David Hooks and other victims of law enforcement militarization and overcriminalization. These dangerous and unconstitutional policies make us all less safe.
