More on this later, but for now, you must read The Agitator’s coverage of the Cory Maye story. Read this one and then this.
Cory had been slightly on my radar as part of a drug war victim story, but it appears the real story is even worse. We have a drug war victim that we are in the process even now. The way the story is shaping up:
- A man with no prior record, at home with his daughter in the middle of the night.
- Police serve a warrant to the other resident of the duplex, and an officer mistakes Cory’s door as part of the other resident and busts in unannounced.
- Cory hears someone enter the house and gets his gun to protect himself and his daughter. In the darkness, shoots at the intruder and kills a cop.
- Cory is on death row in Mississippi.
Perhaps this is a drug war victim we can still save.
