    Default Photos of dead police officer posted outside Tennessee farm


    Two brothers who shot and killed a sheriff's deputy have placed photos of the slain lawman outside the entrance of their farm, calling it a "warning" to other law enforcement officials.

    The Associated Press reports that the photos show the "bullet-riddled bodies" of Roane County Deputy Bill Jones and ride-along Mike Brown, who were shot and killed on May 11, 2006, after arriving at the home of Rocky Houston to deliver an arrest warrant.

    "It goes without saying that any public display on their own property of these photos in whatever manner by the Houstons is despicable and certainly runs counter to the Houstons' claims of innocence," District Attorney General Russell Johnson said in a news release.

    However, it also appears that the sign is perfectly within the Houstons' First Amendment rights.

    Normal is an illusion. What is normal for the spider is chaos for the fly.

    Do some research on the case, and see how corrupt that Roane County, TN politics appear to be. I'd venture a guess that these guys are likely "protected" by others in the community.
