Shocking: Video Shows SWAT Team Gunning Down Iraq War Veteran

(By Lizzie Manning, Mediaite) - A recent report has revealed that Jose Guerna, the Iraq War Veteran killed in a Tucson, Arizona SWAT team raid did not even fire one shot before he was killed.

Guerna was accused of drug smuggling, robbery and human trafficking but despite the SWAT team’s initial reports that he fired the first shots, a more conclusive investigation has revealed that he not only had the safety on his gun but was asleep until his wife warned him that the SWAT team was storming his house.

A startling video depicts the event. It was taken from the head-cameras of one of the SWAT team members and shows a short warning siren followed by almost inaudible yells before the team breaks down the door and starts firing. The entire video is 54 seconds long, but in that time the SWAT team fires over 70 shots, 60 of which hit Mr. Guerna.
