"'Mom, was my dad a bad guy?' four-year-old Joel Guerena plaintively asked his mother Vanessa after her husband, 26-year-old Jose, was killed in a withering barrage of gunfire during a SWAT invasion of their home. 'They killed my dad! Police killed my dad! Why? What did my dad do?' To the extent the question posed by that traumatized child dealt with a moral justification for the killing, a good and sufficient answer would be: 'Nothing.' Jose Guerena was killed because he had the temerity to defend his family from a criminal assault carried out by armed strangers." (05/13/11)
