Gerald Rice (5190)



1/27/2010: In the late afternoon somebody from Rice's house called deputies reporting that he was armed and suicidal. Two deputies came out and met Rice sitting in his garage. According to a lawsuit later filed by the family, one of the five officers shot Rice to death as he turned to reach for a beer, unnecessarily, and that deputy had a "documented history of unprovoked violence." http://www.courthousenews.com/2011/01/27/MySpaceCop.pdf
