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."
