Scott Knibbs was fatally wounded while he was armed in an effort to protect his wife, son, daughter, grandson, and home from what they deemed as an unknown intruder.
- Officer Momphard of MCSO decided to approach the Knibbs home around midnight on April 30th, 2018 due to a complaint from the neighbors that there were wooden boards in the road. Officer Momphard shot Scott four times through the window of his home, then busted down the door and shot him two more times. Officer Momphard had no warrant nor probable cause to be at the Knibbs home. Momphard neglected to follow protocol and as a result, Scott lost his life. Officer Momphard has been placed on paid leave.
- Not even 48 hours had passed before Sheriff Robbie Holland released a statement saying “I stand behind the actions of my officer 100 percent.” SBI is currently investigating this case.
- District Attorney Ashley Welch is supposed to be the prosecutor on this case. When interviewed by the media about this case, Welch talked about her personal and conflicting feelings towards the lawyer who represents the Knibbs family, Mark Melrose. She also falsely claimed that people were sharing links about this case from the Facebook page called Melrose for Judge. Sheriff Holland has been open about supporting Welch for years. Since Sheriff Holland favors Welch and they are heavily connected, it is almost impossible for her to be impartial to this case. Thus, Welch's influence could sway the case in the favor of Sheriff Robbie Holland and MCSO.
This petition was created in an effort to keep this case fair by seeking an independent prosecutor instead of keeping District Attorney Ashley Welch as the prosecutor.
Scott was a family man. He was the owner of a tree company and would leave the state to help with hurricane restoration work. He volunteered at Cullasaja Assembly of God, where he attended for 25 years. He attended Southwestern Community College until he graduated from Basic Law Enforcement Training in May of 1994. He did not have a criminal record.
This year was Momphard's first year as an MCSO officer.
Scott never had a chance to open the front door or talk to Officer Momphard.
