Pigs lust for killing sleepy people...

SILVER SPRING, Md. (AP) — A Maryland man who was shot and killed by a
police officer was asleep in his bedroom when police opened fire from
outside his house, an attorney for the 21-year-old man’s family said
Friday. The man’s girlfriend was also wounded.

The Montgomery County Police Department said in a news release Friday
that Duncan Socrates Lemp “confronted” police and was shot by one of
the officers early Thursday. Rene Sandler, an attorney for Lemp’s
relatives, said an eyewitness gave a “completely contrary” account of
the shooting. She said police could have “absolutely no justification”
for shooting Lemp based on what she has heard about the circumstances.

“The facts as I understand them from eyewitnesses are incredibly
concerning,” she told The Associated Press.

The warrant that police obtained to search the Potomac home Lemp
shared with his parents and 19-year-old brother doesn’t mention any
“imminent threat” to law enforcement or the public, Lemp’s relatives
said in a statement released Friday by their lawyers. Nobody in the
house that morning had a criminal record, the statement adds.

“Any attempt by the police to shift responsibility onto Duncan or his
family, who were sleeping when the police fired shots into their home,
is not supported by the facts,” the statement says.

A police department spokesman didn’t immediately respond to the
statements by the family or their lawyer.

The department’s news release on Friday says tactical unit members
were serving a “high-risk” search warrant around 4:30 a.m. when one of
the unit’s officers fatally shot Lemp. Police detectives recovered
three rifles and two handguns from the home. Lemp was prohibited from
possessing firearms, police said.

“Detectives were following up on a complaint from the public that
Lemp, though prohibited, was in possession of firearms,” the release
says without elaborating.

Sandler said the family believes police fired gunshots, not a
flashbang or other projectile, from outside the home, including
through Lemp’s bedroom window, while he and his girlfriend were
sleeping. Nobody in the home heard any warnings or commands before
police opened fire, she said.

“There is no warrant or other justification that would ever allow for
that unless there is an imminent threat, which there was not,” Sandler

The police department’s news release says the “facts and circumstances
of the encounter” are still under investigation. Prosecutors from
neighboring Howard County will review the evidence at the conclusion
of the investigation.

“An established agreement between the Montgomery County State’s
Attorney’s Office and the Howard County State’s Attorney’s Office
stipulates that when an officer-involved shooting involving injury or
death occurs in one county, the other county’s State’s Attorney’s
Office will review the event,” police said.

Lemp was Caucasian, according to Sandler. She did not know the race of
the unidentified officer involved in the shooting because she said the
officers were wearing masks. The officer was placed on administrative
leave, a standard procedure after police shootings.

Sandler said Lemp’s grief-stricken family is traumatized. Their
statement says they intend to “hold each and every person responsible
for his death.”

“We believe that the body camera footage and other forensic evidence
from this event will support what Duncan’s family already knows, that
he was murdered,” the statement says.

Lemp worked as a software developer and was trying to raise money for
a startup company, according to friends and co-workers.

“He was a talented, smart guy. Super nice. Didn’t deserve to get
shot,” said Samuel Reid, whose Canadian software company employed Lemp
as an independent contractor.

Tsolmondorj Natsagdorj, 24, of Fairfax, Virginia, said he met Lemp in
2016 and bonded with him over their shared interest in cryptocurrency.
They also talked about politics. He described Lemp as a libertarian
who frequented the 4chan and Reddit message boards, sites popular with
internet trolls.

“Duncan was a young guy with a bright future as an entrepreneur,”
Natsagdorj said. “He was working on things to change the world.”

On social media accounts that friends said belonged to him, Lemp’s
username was “YungQuant.” On an internet forum called “My Militia,”
someone who identified himself as Duncan Lemp, of Potomac, and posted
under the username “yungquant” said he was “an active III%’r and
looking for local members & recruits.” That’s an apparent reference to
the Three Percenters, a wing of the militia movement. The group’s
logo, the Roman numeral “III,” has become popular with anti-government
extremists, according to the Anti-Defamation League.

On his Instagram account, Lemp recently posted a photograph that
depicts two people holding up rifles and included the term “boogaloo,”
slang used by militia members and other extremists to describe a
future civil war in the U.S.

Friends said they never heard Lemp espouse any anti-government
rhetoric. Sandler said Lemp was not a part of any anti-government or
militia-type group.

“He was pro-America and supported wholeheartedly all the protections
of the Constitution,” she said.
