"It’s not enough that Calhan, Colorado resident David Goss was shot in the stomach by a trespasser last June after he had order the intruder to leave.
Because that trespasser wore a government-issued costume, Goss will spend the next four years in a government cage — half the sentence that had been demanded by the vindictive prosecutor.
Goss, who was tasered and shot in the abdomen at close range by Deputy Jeffery Schulz, was convicted of second-degree assault, menacing, disarming an officer, attempting to disarm an officer, and obstructing justice...
Deputy Jeffery Schulz claimed that David Goss had “attacked” him and tried to grab his gun. He initially claimed that he shot david Goss with a Taser after he sensed the farmer “advancing” on him from behind. He later enhanced the story by claiming that Goss — despite being hit with a Taser strike — ended up on top of him, beating him with his own radio and threatening to kill him. At that point, according to Deputy Jeffery Schulz, he shot the farmer in self-defense.
In addition to being internally inconsistent, Deputy Jeffery Schulz’s composite account of the incident is rebutted my eyewitness testimony. Confronted about his inconsistencies on the witness stand, Deputy Jeffery Schulz — a paragon of self-pity who was reduced to blubbering at several points during the trial — insisted that "the situation was chaotic …. So if I don’t remember something that’s normal and typical.”
In a sense, he’s correct: Since cops are trained and expected to lie, self-serving perjury of this kind is entirely normal and typical.
Defense attorney Geoffrey Heim produced photographs of Deputy Jeffery Schulz after the incident showing that there was dust on the left leg of his trousers, but none on his back. Prosecutor Tanya Karimi insisted that Deputy Jeffery Schulz was “mistaken” about how he had landed on the ground, and that he was on his side when the struggle took place. However, Deputy Jeffrey Schulz himself claimed that David Goss was kneeling on his chest at the time of the shooting.
Deputy Jeffrey Schulz also threatened several eyewitnesses on the scene.
At the sentencing hearing, a tearful Deputy Jeffery Schulz continued to wallow in his bottomless sense of victimhood."
