Florida Deputies Gun Man Down as His Son Tries to Explain that He's Deaf posted 09/23/2014, 9:13 AM (The Free Thought Project)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
Daytona Beach, FL — A 52-year-old father and husband of 30 years, was shot and killed by a Volusia County Sheriff’s deputy Saturday afternoon.

Edward Miller and his son Edward Jr. went to Fryer’s towing Friday to settle a dispute about a a towed vehicle and according to the police report, 
Darice Podgorski-Beneddix, 44, an employee at Fryer's, reported to Daytona police officers that the elder Miller "was being rude and yelling at her."

The elder Miller said he "may have been yelling due to him being hard of hearing however in no way was he trying to be rude."

Employee Erik Stewart, 51, told Podgorski-Beneddix that the younger Miller "had a gun holstered on his right side hip.”

Podgorski-Beneddix then called for police assistance "out of fear for their safety," according to the report.

Officers determined the younger Miller had an up-to-date concealed weapons license to carry the gun, and it was returned to him.
The report goes on to state that the Millers were told that if they come back with the “correct amount of money,” their vehicle would be returned to them.

When the father and son returned Saturday with the correct amount of money to claim their vehicle, the dispute resumed. Two deputies happened to be near the scene on an unrelated matter.

Police say deputy Joel Hernandez and another unnamed deputy, heard yelling coming from the front of Fryer’s and walked around the building to investigate.

What happened next isn’t exactly clear as the family of deceased Edward P. Miller, were instructed by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement not to release any information about the incident.

"Yesterday they hid me from the cameras," Edward Miller said. "They didn't want any information
