Denver Cop Gets Off For Killing Cigarette Butt Tosser

I think we will see more and more of these stories in the days to come...

David Rossiter, 25, of Sheridan, Montana, was shot twice, once in the thigh and once in the chest over a possible cigarette butt thrown out of a pick-up truck in Denver, Colorado. The bullet that killed him broke three ribs, pierced his lung and went into his heart. The recovered bullet was a "large-caliber, copper-jacketed lead bullet."

David also had cuts, bruises and broken fingers, as he and his pick-up "buddy" had engaged in a fist fight with Montana after they stopped on the road and argued. David, apparently, was going to make an attempt to take the gun away from Montana when Montana shot and killed him.

The off-duty deputy that shot him, Daniel Montana Jr., is currently on administrative leave but will probably be returning to work soon.

A grand jury investigating the incident decided not to indict the officer of any charges. Because of secrecy requirements a reason why this lack of indictment occurred will never be known.

David's family is understandably shocked and dismayed at our criminal justice system and are asking their lawyer to file a civil suit.

Welcome to the New World Order.
