A Harnett deputy’s aggressive choice, and a death that defies reason

Deputy Nicholas Kehagias had no search warrant to enter or arrest warrant to serve on residents of John Livingston’s home

When Livingston attempted to shut the door, Kehagias told him: ‘This is not how this works,’ according to a fellow deputy who was on the scene

Months before the shooting, Kehagias posted profanity-laced statements on Facebook and joked that napalm ‘wouldn’t burn hot enough’ to improve his patrol zone
