    AT 11:00PM ON DECEMBER 26, 2001...
    Members of the Prentiss, Mississippi police force and the Pearl River Basin Narcotics Task Force conducted a drug raid on the duplex apartment of Jamie Smith. Cory Maye lived in the other apartment that made up the duplex. Maye was not named in the police warrant for the duplex. Smith was arrested for marijuana possession. As the raid on Smith commenced, some officers went around to the other side of the duplex, in search of more contraband. They either thought the other side of the duplex was part of Smith's apartment, or they may have thought it was abandoned. The door was actually a door to Maye's home. Maye was asleep and awoke when he heard the rear door being smashed in. The rear door opened into the rear bedroom where Maye's 18 month old daughter was asleep. Fearing for himself and his daughter, Maye picked up his gun and fired at the intruders as they came into his daughter's bedroom. A bullet hit and killed the first officer to enter, Ronald Jones. When other officers shouted "Police," Maye ceased firing and surrendered to arrest. Maye is now on death row for the killing of a police officer.

    There are a lot more details here. This sounds like a pretty fucked up situation.

    Tie wasn't a cop who testified a completely different story than the defendant. Shit is bunk.

    There are 3 sides to every story. Obviously if the guy's story is true this is the most fucked up thing that could happen (legally they had no warrant so going into that apartment was illegal and therfore the shooting would have been justified no matter what). If what the cops say is true that they announced themselves over and over again then the whole "rightness" of the issue is changed... who the fuck knows.

    For the record... just because someone has no criminal record does not mean they are not criminals... it just means they haven't been caught...

    Unless you're from Mississippi, I don't see how that's relevant.

    And for the record, no, this is not how Tie died. Tie never entered, nor tried to enter, his murderer's apartment. He was shot in the back of the head while climbing a fire escape. (I do understand the point of comparing the incidents, but I just want to make the facts clear.)

    Why do I keep hearing about cops breaking into the wrong place? That's a hell of a mistake to make. You'd think they would double, even triple check these things.

    The information given most of the times is by rival drug dealers to take people out... makes confusion. Also many broke ass houses in run down hoods don't have any type of ID... thirdly what you have to do during a no-knock warrant is show up and be inside in 60 seconds. Not that easy.... mistakes do happen.
