“We don't discuss tactics... or the way we work” - WOW!  More than eight months later, FBI tells media to pound sand and REFUSES to say why they killed disabled veteran Theodore Deschler in pre-dawn raid |  The Gateway expert

It’s been more than eight months since the FBI killed disabled veteran Theodore Deschler in a predawn raid on his mother’s home in Tennessee, and they are refusing to provide details about the case.

The Tennessee star contacted the FBI this week for answers about the deadly raid. The FBI said to pound sand.

“We do not discuss tactics, techniques or the way we operate,” Joel Siskovic, Memphis’ chief division counsel and public affairs officer, told The Tennessee Star. “That’s not a question we would ever answer.”

The Tennessee Star reported:

More than eight months after a raid that left a Henderson man dead, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) will not release details about the case, while local police say they were only made aware of the raid after it had taken place. .

FBI agents shot and killed Theodore Deschler (pictured above) at his mother’s home where he lived in August last year.

The circumstances surrounding his death remain murky. This week, The Tennessee Star contacted the law enforcement agencies involved in the deadly raid, but details remain difficult to come by.

The Star asked the FBI what happened before Theodore Deschler’s death.

“We don’t talk about tactics, techniques or the way we work,” said Joel Siskovic, Chief Division Counsel and Public Affairs Officer for the Memphis FBI. “That’s not a question we would ever answer.”

Siskovic said the FBI never talks about operations like the raid on Theodore Deschler’s home and that the only way to get more information is through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

The family is also desperate for answers after FBI agents broke down the door of Bonnie Deschler’s home last August and killed her son Theodore Deschler in front of her eyes in a pre-dawn raid.

The FBI refuses to tell Bonnie Deschler why they showed up in armored vehicles at 6 a.m. on August 16, pulled her from the house, threw her in the back of a police vehicle and fatally shot her unarmed son.

“That’s none of your business!” FBI agents told her after they blew up her house and killed her son.

Theodore Deschler

According to WBBJFBI agents came to Bonnie Deschler’s home in Henderson, Tennessee to serve an arrest warrant on her son Theodore when things turned deadly.

A neighbor told WBBJ he woke up at 6 a.m. after hearing a loud bang.

“I woke up this morning around six o’clock. I heard a loud bang. Then I heard a few more. I heard the speakers: ‘Come out with your hands up. We are the FBI. We’re not going anywhere.’ Before I knew it, I came outside to see what was going on and saw them rush out the window,” a neighbor told WBBJ.

Theodore’s family believes he was unarmed when officers burst through the door and threw flashbangs into the house.

“It was a pointless action. You know Teddy was a 100% disabled veteran. He had problems. He had severe PTSD. He had depression, but he got help for it, but this was futile. He had no weapon with him. He was just trying to get out of the house because it was filled with tear gas,” Theodore’s mother Bonnie told WBBJ.

The house was destroyed by tear gas, flash bangs and bullets. Most windows were broken.

According to Bonnie Deschler, her son was unarmed and standing in the doorway when he was killed by FBI agents.

‘You couldn’t see it. From the height of the door and where Teddy was standing when they shot and killed him, you couldn’t tell if he was armed or not, and you know he wasn’t. Because if you looked at the door, you saw where his hands were covered in blood and went down through the door. Well, if he had a gun in his hand…,” Bonnie Deschler told WBBJ.

The FBI-involved shooting is currently under investigation, so the family is in the dark about the details of the raid.

According to Fox newsIn a previously unreported detail, Theodore Deschler was “arrested as a suspect after a stabbing at a gas station in a nearby town,” according to Selmer police.

Details of the stabbing, which occurred in May, just a few months before the FBI raid, are unclear.

It is also unclear if any charges arise from the stabbing or if the FBI raid was related to the incident.
