North Carolina Deputies Shoot and Kill Man After He Demanded

North Carolina deputies shot and killed an unarmed man Sunday while trying to search a home for an assault suspect who no longer lived there.

Harnett County sheriff’s deputies arrived at the home of John Livingston at 3:30 a.m., demanding to be let inside.

But Livingston,  a 33-year-old father of three, insisted on seeing a search warrant.

When they were unable to produce one, Livingston shut the door.

But that prompted deputies to kick in the door, force their way inside and begin beating, tasing and pepper spraying Livingston

Livingston was not fighting back, but at one point, when the deputy had him facedown on the porch outside, tasering him, the man grabbed the taser from the deputy  in an attempt to stop the torture, according to his roommate.

According to WNCN:

Carroll says sheriff’s deputies knocked on their door around 3:30 a.m.
Carroll said they were looking for someone that no longer lived there. When deputies asked Livingston if they could search the trailer, Livingston said “not without a search warrant,” according to Carroll.
Livingston then closed the door.
“The cop kicked in the door, got on top of him, started slinging him around beat him…” Carroll said.
Carroll said sheriff’s deputies then started spraying mace on Livingston and using the Taser, according to the roommate.
Witnesses said Livingston was not fighting back and was trying to get the Taser out of the deputy’s hands.
The incident eventually continued outside.
“He (Livingston) barely had the Taser in his hand but he had it where it was constantly going off and the officer I guess that spoke to him rolled over there, says he got the Taser and shot him in this position,” Carroll said while on the deck outside the home demonstrating what happened.

Livingston, who was shot between four to six times, died facedown on the porch.

The deputies who shot him have not been identified.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
