After Nearly Four Years Of Criminal Prosecution
Prosecutor Abandons Case Against Local Man Accused Of
Pointing A Gun At Police Officers
Expert Witness Called The Police Shooting Of Morrison
October 13, 2016
VolusiaExposed.Com has been informed that after nearly four years of prosecution - the local State Attorney's office has decided to abandon their prosecution of Michael Morrison.(see below linked court notice)
Mr. Morrison was shot and arrested by a Holly Hill police officer in late October 2012 - when the officers were breaking into Morrison's home in order to take him into custody on a domestic battery charge. The police did not have either a search or arrest warrant. As the police were breaking into Morrison home - they allege that Morrison pointed a hand gun at them - thus causing one of the officers to shoot Morrison in the back.
Morrison has denied pointing a gun at the two officers - and took the position that the police had no legal authority to be on his property. During a recent hearing - an expert witness in policing procedures agreed with Mr. Morrison.
VolusiaExposed.Com has written several articles detailing the shooting, the arrest and the criminal prosecution of Morrison - these articles (web links) have been incorporated within this article (see right of page).
We invite you to read our earlier articles - so that you - our readers - can have a full appreciation of how dysfunctional our justice system has become.
Congratulations Michael - now watch your back !!
