In August of 2017 the shooting of a man by a female bail agent occurred in Stillwater, Oklahoma. Bail agent, Chasity Dawn Carey, 42, was attempting to take Brandon James Williams, 38, back into custody. Brandon thought he was meeting the bail agent for a normal check-in, but Carey clearly had a chip on her shoulder for this dude. She tells him to stand up so she can put cuffs on him. Brandon becomes angry and tells her not to put her hands on him. A little scuffle happens and Carey pulls out a gun and shoots Brandon, killing him. Carey claimed she shot Brandon in self defense because he tried to grab her gun and jump through the window. Umm… Okay? Anywho, Carey was charged and acquitted of first degree murder.. which was very stupid of the prosecutor because this was not first degree murder. Had she been charged with second degree murder she may have been convicted.
Yesterday, police finally released the video showing the shooting. The young boy in the video is Carey’s 19-year-old son, Justin Henderson, who set up his new Go Pro camera just hours before Brandon arrived for his check-in. The video does not capture Brandon being shot but it does show Carey shooting him. So what do you guys think about this one? Was this murder and should this woman have been convicted of anything or was it justified?
