11. The dead guy was charged with Assault with a deadly weapon,
armed robbery. The police used a felony entry. He did not shoplift it, he beat someone and took it from them. A 2 on one beating is justification for use of deadly force at the time. A very serious crime. Meaning the person they "ganged" on could have shot both of them dead at the crime scene.

They had a warrant, they had the right to enter his house.

They will investigate to see if procedure was followed. If he moved towards the officers with something in his hand that looked like a weapon they will be cleared.

If procedure was followed there will be no charges. The fact that he is white and comes from a rich family should not make a difference.
