Undercover Cop Conducts Unauthorized Sting Operation & Kills Mother of Two While She Screams For Help
Matt Agorist with The Free Thought Project reports:
23-year old Donna Castleberry Dalton, a mother of two, was shot and killed by Officer Andrew Mitchell of the Columbus Police Department. Since that fateful day in 2018, controversy has surrounded the case.
Mitchell has since been charged with murder and involuntary manslaughter for the death of Dalton and his trial is underway this week. Mitchell’s defense is claiming that the officer feared for his life when he blocked the mother of two in, while wearing plain clothes, driving an unmarked car, and not carrying a badge in an attempt to arrest her.
Mitchell claims that he was attempting to take her into custody on this warrant, but instead of just checking in with family and friends or waiting for her to come through the system again as police often do with misdemeanor cases, Mitchell set up an elaborate sting operation. This alleged sting operation was totally unauthorized, and he was not even working her case. He was also was supposed to be on a different call blocks away when the incident happened.
