Gunned Down At Home

Well America, you can now be shot by police for doing nothing more than minding your own business while standing in your own driveway. Guess where? Florida of course! The sunshine state where you may never see the sun shine again if you make the "wrong move". For instance being a teenager walking down the street with skittles and iced tea is a no no. You might even get shot by some psycho citizen. Sometimes I wonder if it would be better to never go to Florida again. But a life lived in fear is not a life. It is just an existence, and who among us just wants to exist? 

A Florida man says he was shot and injured in the driveway of his home by sheriff's deputies after reaching into his mother's car for a cigarette, according to media sources.
Roy Middleton, 60, was reportedly shot in the leg shortly before 3 a.m. Saturday after he went to retrieve a cigarette from his mother's car in the driveway of their home.
Middleton said he was reaching into his car for a cigarette when he was confronted by sheriff's deputies responding to a burglary call. A neighbor had called 911 after they saw him reaching into the car, 
reports the paper.
Middleton said he heard a deputy ordering him to put up his hands. He was backing out of the driveway with his hands raised, he said, when they opened fire.
"It was like a firing squad," he said. "Bullets were flying everywhere."
The Escambia County Sheriff's Office reportedly wouldn't comment. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating the incident and the deputies have been placed on paid administrative leave.
Is this a reward for a job well done, or an attempt for them to have the officers lay low until the gun smoke clears?
