Innocent Concealed Carry Permit Holder Killed by Cop Bringing Lunch to Grandma


Casey Christopher Goodson Jr., 23, had no criminal record, was not sought by police, and was delivering lunch to his grandmother when he was shot and killed by Jason Meade, a Franklin County Sheriff's office working with a United States Marshals Service fugitive task team. His grandma and Goodson's 5-year-old brother stood in front of them as Goodson died, their Subway sandwiches laying in a pool of blood. Meade has been charged with murder over a year after killing Goodson.

Saturday will commemorate a year since Goodson's death. Meade was permitted to retire in July.

"Neither the indictment nor the timing were unexpected," Mark Collins, Meade's police union-appointed attorney, said. "We aim to forcefully defend him and ensure that he is allowed the due process protections guaranteed by the Constitution."

The news, however, delighted Goodson's mother, who wrote on her Facebook page Thursday morning, in all capital letters and with many exclamation points: "2 counts of murder and reckless homicide! Let us proceed! Casey deserves justice, darling! Glory to God!"

Goodson's family immediately filed a federal lawsuit against the police after the indictment. According to the Columbus Dispatch:

According to the complaint, Meade got much more training in guns usage and expertise than in any other area, including de-escalation, and that the training was conducted in such a manner that there was an apparent lack of review or monitoring. According to the complaint, Meade last received de-escalation training in 2014 and finished it in less than four minutes.

In the complaint, Goodson's estate also refers to Meade as a "religious fanatic," claiming he took joy in physical conflict. "Jason Meade derives joy from the use of force," the complaint said.

As we previously revealed earlier this year, Meade is a former preacher. However, in contrast to the majority of pastors who preach Jesus Christ's idea of turning the other cheek, Meade taught striking first and asking questions afterwards.

Meade delivered a sermon at the Ohio State Association of Free Will Baptists in 2018 as part of a YouTube video series for the Franklin County Sheriff's Office titled "Connecting with the Community." "I learned long ago why I'm justified in delivering the first punch," this murdering officer said during the lecture. "Do not glance up here as though to say, 'Oh, police brutality.'"

Meade emphasised multiple times his position on preemptively hitting people he "hunted."

While introducing himself as a policeman to the congregation, Meade said, "I work for the Sheriff's office..." I search for individuals — it's a fantastic profession that I like. I've had a number of my SWAT members and even some of my superiors here; I appreciate their presence; they're all excellent men of God. I'm delighted people came out today to support us, but they'll tell you, I've done this job for 14 years, and you know I've never been struck in the face?"

"It is a reality," he says. It is not because I am so good; I am not terrible; it is not because I am so good. You are aware of why? I figured out a long time ago that I had to throw the opening punch."

"Hahahaha yes, every time I hit 'em, I'm like, that's for you, that's for you," Meade continues. It's not that horrible, I assure you. However, take note that this is the truth."

When a preacher preaches about throwing the first punch, most people are wise enough to walk away, but Meade was more than a preacher. He is also a policeman – and officers should not discuss throwing the first punch.

Despite the fact that Meade's whole chain of command was aware of, present at, and heard this lecture, it was never questioned. Two years later, he would deliver that first blow in the form of many gunshots to Goodson's torso.

According to an attorney representing the family, Goodson had never been charged with a crime, had no criminal history, and was not the subject of any inquiry. Nonetheless, he was mistakenly targeted by police and shot.

According to police, Goodson drew a revolver on them while delivering three Subway sandwiches to his grandmother and two children and opening the door, forcing the deputy to shoot on him.

While police claimed to be looking for a gun, they confessed in their statement that they had no lawful justification to approach Goodson.

"The deputy was conducting an investigation into the incident, and there have been indications of a verbal confrontation. According to a sheriff's statement, "the deputy shot at Mr Casey Goodson, killing him." "Mr Goodson's gun was found. Mr Goodson was not the subject of the task force's investigation."

Attorneys for Goodson's family reacted angrily to the assertion about Goodson pointing a gun, stating in a news release that "neither the City of Columbus nor any other investigative agency has indicated that Casey Goodson brandished a gun prior to Meade pulling the trigger."

"With Meade's statement made over a week after he murdered Casey, it is crucial to remember that this is a standard argument often advanced by police officers after a shooting," they stated. "It is equally crucial to keep in mind that the data often refutes these statements."

According to Sean Walton of the Walton and Brown, LLC legal firm, Goodson was licenced to carry a concealed weapon and "Ohio does not restrict open carrying of weapons."

Indeed, it is very possible that Meade saw the perfectly legal and licenced rifle, wrongfully "feared for his life," and murdered Goodson for no cause - much more so if he believed he had to "throw the opening punch."

"Casey was shot and died as he entered his residence," Watson added. "His 72-year-old grandmother and two toddlers who were at the door saw his demise."

Indeed, an autopsy corroborated these statements, revealing that Goodson had been shot six times in the chest, with five of the bullets striking his back.

While the sheriff's department said that they "reported observing a guy with a gun," Goodson was not that man. Additionally, it makes little sense for Goodson to leave the dentist's office where he had his teeth cleaned, pick up Subway for his family, and then wave a pistol out his window on his way home. Goodson had a concealed carry permit. He had received training and was familiar with the ins and outs of handgun carry, which do not entail leaving the dentist, picking up lunch, or flashing a pistol out the window.

"It makes no sense," Walton said. "Who drives down the street with a pistol dangling from his window?" This is not a video for a song. This is the actual world."

We concur.

"There is no rationale or explanation for any of this," Walton said. "He died in his own kitchen after collapsing."

According to his relatives, the bags of sandwiches were found near his corpse after Meade's murder, and they did not see any firearms.

Due to the fact that deputies are not obliged to wear body cameras in this county, it is the cop's word against the family's.

Hopefully, this trial will result in justice being delivered.

Cop Who Killed concealed convey allow Holder Bragged about ‘looking humans, Throwing the first Punch’

Casey Christopher Goodson Jr., 23, had no recordwasn't wanted by police, and was bringing his grandmother lunch, when he was gunned down by Franklin County Sheriff’s deputy, Jason Meade who was working with a U.S. Marshals Service fugitive task force. His grandmother and Goodson’s 5-year-old brother watched Goodson die ahead of them — their Subway sandwiches lying in a very pool of blood. Few details about why Meade decided to kill this man are released, aside from the quality “feared for his life” and “I saw a gun” claims. However, we are now learning about this killer cop’s past which can have contributed to his trigger-happy nature.

Meade features a background as a pastor. But unlike most pastors who teach Jesus Christ’s philosophy of turning the opposite cheek, Meade preached to strike first and ask questions later.

In a YouTube video series for the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office called “Connecting with the Community,” Meade gave a sermon at the Ohio State Association of powerfulness Baptists in 2018. During that sermon, this killer cop said, “I learned way back why I’m justified in throwing the primary punch. Don’t search here like ‘Oh police brutality’.”

Meade reiterated his stance on preemptively striking those he “hunted” several times.

While telling the churchgoers that he was a cop, Meade said, “I work for the Sheriff’s office… I hunt people – it’s a good job, I love it. I got a bunch of my SWAT members here and even my bosses are here, I appreciate ‘em starting off, they’re good men of god. I’m glad they came bent support us today, but they’ll allow you to know, I worked this job 14 years, you recognize I ain’t never been hit clean within the face one time?”

He clarifies, “It’s a fact. It ain’t cuz I’m so good, I ain’t bad, it ain’t cuz I’m so good. you recognize why? I learned way back I gotta throw the primary punch.”

Meade adds, “Hahahaha yeah when I hit ‘em and I’m like that’s for you, that’s for you [referring to the audience]. It’s not that bad, I’m kidding. But listen, this is often the reality.”

When a preacher gives a sermon about throwing the primary punch, people should know to a tolerable degree to steer out but Meade wasn’t just a preacher. he's also a cop — and when cops discuss throwing the primary punch, they ought to not be cops.

Despite Meade’s entire chain of command knowing being at and hearing this sermon, it had been never brought into question. Two years later, he would throw that first enter the shape of multiple bullets into the body of Goodson.

Goodson, in keeping with an attorney for the family, had not been purported to have committed any crime, had no criminal background and wasn't the target of any investigation. Nevertheless, he was wrongly targeted by police and gunned down.

Police claim Goodson pulled a gun on them — as he brought three Subway sandwiches to his grandmother and two toddlers while unlocking the door — and therefore the deputy was forced to fireside on him.

Though claiming to seek out a gun, in their statement, police admitted that they'd no legitimate reason for approaching Goodson.

“The deputy was investigating the case and there are reports of articulation. The deputy fired at Mr. Casey Goodson, leading to his death,” in line with a sheriff’s statement. “A gun was recovered from Mr. Goodson. Mr. Goodson wasn't the person being sought by the U.S. Marshals task force.”

Attorneys for Goodson’s family condemned the statement about Goodson pointing a gun, saying in an exceedingly release that “neither the town of Columbus nor the other investigatory agency has alleged that Casey Goodson pointed a gun before Meade pulled the trigger.”

“With Meade’s statement issued nearly one full week after he killed Casey, it's critical to notice that this is often a classic defense often claimed by police after they shoot and kill someone,” they said. “It is additionally critical to recollect that always the evidence doesn't support these claims.”

According to Sean Walton, from the business firm of Walton and Brown, LLC, Goodson was licensed to hold a concealed weapon “and Ohio doesn't prohibit the open carrying of firearms.”

It is indeed likely that Meade simply saw the completely legal and licensed gun, unjustly “feared for his life,” and killed Goodson for no reason — especially if he thought he had to “throw the primary punch.”

“Casey was shot and killed as he unlocked his door and entered his home,” Watson said. “His death was witnessed by his 72-year-old grandmother and two toddlers who were near the door.”

Though the sheriff’s department “reported witnessing a person with a gun,” Goodson wasn't that man. What’s more, it makes no sense for Goodson to go away to the dentist’s office where he just had his teeth cleaned, acquire Subway for his family, and wave a gun out of his window on the way home. Goodson was a concealed carry permit holder. He had been through training and knew the ins and outs of carrying a firearm which doesn't include leaving the dentist, finding out lunch, and waving a gun out of your window.

“It doesn’t be,” Walton said. “Who drives down the road waving a gun out of the window? This isn’t a music video. this can be the real world.”

We agree.

“There’s no reason or justification for why any of this happened,” Walton said. “He fell and died in his own kitchen.”

According to the family, the luggage of sandwiches was on the bottom next to his body after Meade killed him and that they didn’t see any gun.

Because deputies during this county don't seem to be required to wear body cameras, it's the cop’s word against the family’s.

As the Columbus press so eloquently found out, in Meade’s sermon at the Baptist convention he lays out three prerequisites that justify throwing the primary punch: Proclamation, posturing, and if they need a history of violence.

The current evidence that puts Casey Goodson in an exceedingly position of entering his home with sandwiches in hand and keys within the door would seem to fail each of the primary two and Casey’s lack of a list would cancel the third.

Harmless concealed bring allow Holder, Killed with the aid of police officers while Bringing Lunch to His Grandma



Casey Christopher Goodson Jr., 23, had no listwasn't wanted by police, and was bringing his grandmother lunch, when he was gunned down by Franklin County Sheriff’s deputy, Jason Meade who was working with a U.S. Marshals Service fugitive task force. His grandmother and two toddler children watched Goodson die ahead of them — their Subway sandwiches lying in an exceedingly pool of blood.

Goodson, in keeping with an attorney for the family, had not been speculated to have committed any crime, had no criminal background and wasn't the target of any investigation. Nevertheless, he was wrongly targeted by police and gunned down.

Police claim Goodson pulled a gun on them — as he brought three Subway sandwiches to his grandmother and two toddlers, while unlocking the door — and therefore the deputy was forced to fireplace on him.

Though claiming to search out a gun, in their statement, police admitted that that they had no legitimate reason for approaching Goodson.

“The deputy was investigating things and there are reports of a articulation. The deputy fired at Mr. Casey Goodson, leading to his death,” consistent with a sheriff’s statement. “A gun was recovered from Mr. Goodson. Mr. Goodson wasn't the person being sought by the U.S. Marshals task force.”

According to Sean Walton, from the business firm of Walton and Brown, LLC, Goodson was licensed to hold a concealed weapon “and Ohio doesn't prohibit the open carrying of firearms.”

It is indeed likely that Meade simply saw the completely legal and licensed gun, unjustly “feared for his life,” and killed Goodson for no reason.

“Casey was shot and killed as he unlocked his door and entered his home,” Watson said. “His death was witnessed by his 72-year-old grandmother and two toddlers who were near the door.”

Though the sheriff’s department “reported witnessing a person with a gun,” Goodson wasn't that man. What’s more, it makes no sense for Goodson to go away the dentist’s office where he just had his teeth cleaned, develop Subway for his family, and wave a gun out of his window on the way home. Goodson was a concealed carry permit holder. He had been through training and knew the ins and outs of carrying a firearm.

“It doesn’t be,” Walton said. “Who drives down the road waving a gun out of the window? This isn’t a music video. this is often world.”

We agree.

“There’s no reason or justification for why any of this happened,” Walton said. “He fell and died in his own kitchen.”

According to the family, the baggage of sandwiches were on the bottom next to his body after Meade killed him and that they didn’t see any gun.

“Like many within the community, i'm at a loss of words over the killing of Casey Christopher Goodson, Jr.,” U.S. Rep. Joyce Beatty, incoming chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, who represents the district where Goodson was gunned down said in an exceedingly statement on Monday.

“The circumstances surrounding his tragic death are upsetting and very unsettling because too many Black men in our community are dying or are the victims of unjustifiable, excessive force from the very people sworn to safeguard and serve all people. I join Casey’s family, friends, and also the entire community in demanding accountability and seeking justice for his senseless killing.”

Because deputies during this county don't seem to be required to wear body cameras, it's the cop’s word against the family’s. Hopefully there was a security camera nearby that captured the shooting and shows the full truth of the case, otherwise, we all know how these situations play out — even when there's video.

Predictably, like they are doing on every occasion a legal gun owner is killed by the police, the NRA is silent.

For those that remember, Philando Castile, was killed during a similar manner. Like Goodson, he had not committed a criminal offense, was a legal concealed carry permit holder, and was complying with everything the officer was telling him, yet he was gunned down before of his girlfriend and her small child.
