Gruesome Video Shows Cops Shoot Mentally Ill Man with Shotgun Through Cell Door

However, the video shows Trevino was naked and pressed up against the door when Haas fired on him. The manufacturer of Nova rounds warns that the ammunition is not meant to be fired at people or animals, and is meant to be a distraction device.

Trevino’s attorney, Lee Pearlman, does not believe that the deputies responded appropriately to his signs of mental illness.

I don’t know how you wouldn’t be aware of it,” Pearlman said. “He’s absolutely having a schizophrenic break and the statements he’s saying are bizarre.

He also called the use of the Nova round “completely unnecessary,” adding, “There’s no reason, at this point, that they have to force their way into the cell. This is not an emergency situation. There’s certainly no reason they have to use this level of force.

Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco would not take questions about the incident, but an email statement from a spokesperson read: “A criminal with a violent history in the jail failed to comply with lawful directions. His actions dictated our reaction.

However, Trevino has no violent crime convictions. He was arrested for breaking parole after he began having an episode and believed someone was going to kill him. He asked a neighbor to call the police, who arrested him for breaking curfew as set by his probation on a misdemeanor driving under the influence charge.

Hospital records show that Trevino’s wound was deep enough to reveal muscle. It required multiple surgeries to correct.

I have nerve damage and muscle damage,” Trevino told the Tampa Bay Times. “There’s pain every time I try to walk.

None of the officers involved have faced repercussions for the incident because the department does not have a policy on use of Nova rounds. Ergo, no one violated any policy.

    His actions didn’t dictate shit. You could have just chunked a tear bomb and close the hatch. Instead, the use of what is equivalent to lethal measures, was in fact used, and used in the manner of blatant regard. Every officer involved belongs on the end of a rope

    His actions didn’t dictate shit. You could have just chunked a tear bomb and close the hatch. Instead, the use of what is equivalent to lethal measures, was in fact used, and used in the manner of blatant disregard to such measures, equaling a very hostile environment within the sheriffs department and the lack of humanitarian discipline, equaling tyrants in uniforms who just follow orders. Every officer involved belongs on the end of a rope
