They always giving excuses for these cops that hurt civilians but the fact is that these people have no control of these cops that kill and murder black people with no regard for protocol. You cannot put a bandaid on a bullet hole and that is what this is. Its not the training it is the hiring process That these people that are camera are failing at. not to mention the elected official that allow stuff like this to happen. They don’t get fired and they don’t go to jail that alone she raise eyebrows
A 17-year-old boy fatally shot by a Chicago police officer Saturday night on the West Side died of multiple gunshot wounds, according to an autopsy by the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
The officer shot the boy after police tried to pull over the vehicle he was riding in, officials said.
The teen, identified by authorities as Michael Elam, was initially taken to an area hospital after the shooting in critical condition. But on Sunday morning, a spokesman for the Civilian Office of Police Accountability, the city agency that investigates police-involved shootings, said the teen has since died.
Two weapons were confiscated at the scene, according to Chicago police, and no officers were hurt.
The shooting happened about 8:30 p.m. near 21st Street and Keeler Avenue in the North Lawndale community after Ogden District tactical officers tried to stop a vehicle for a traffic violation, police said.
As officers followed the vehicle, they saw it hit a parked vehicle and a curb before coming to a stop, police said.
The teen passenger exited the vehicle before “an armed confrontation ensued,” prompting one officer to shoot the teen, police said. The COPA spokesman said the suspect was shot by the officer when he tried to flee as police pursued him on foot.
As required by Chicago Police Department policy after police-involved shootings, that officer will be placed on desk duty for 30 days.
As a matter of routine, COPA will conduct an investigation into whether Police Department protocol was followed during the shooting.
The fatal police shooting of an armed Alabama man after he was mistaken for a mall shooter in November was “justified and not criminal,” authorities said Tuesday.
Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall decided that the Hoover, Alabama, officer who fatally shot 21-year-old Emantic “EJ” F. Bradford Jr. will not be criminally charged in the Thanksgiving night shooting.
The officer, who was not identified, mistakenly targeted Bradford after he was seen running toward one of the shooting victims while holding a hand
The officer’s actions “were reasonable under the circumstances and were consistent with his training and nationally-accepted standards for ‘active shooter’ scenarios,” Marshall’s report states.
The officer identified Bradford “as an immediate deadly threat to innocent civilians and thus shot Bradford to eliminate the threat.”
Surveillance video released from inside the Riverchase Galleria mall shows people running shortly after police say shooting suspect Erron Brown, 20, opened fire, wounding a 12-year-old and an 18-year-old.
Bradford appears in the video’s frame and after a brief pause runs in the opposite direction that people are fleeing. After taking several steps he collapses to the ground and his handgun slides to the floor ahead of him. At least one police officer can be seen approaching him from behind with a firearm drawn.
An autopsy on Bradford showed that he was shot three times from behind.
Though the mall’s policy forbids handguns, Bradford’s father, Emantic Bradford Sr., said his son had a permit to carry a concealed weapon.
Marshall’s report says there was no evidence that Bradford’s handgun was fired at the mall. It adds that the FBI also reviewed the case and, from his understanding, found no evidence to initiate a case against the officer for civil rights violations.
At 1:44 the man is handcuffed to the fence buy both wrists so the police officer then saw fit to deal out some personal punishment in the form of an assault. Regardless of what the man in cuffs has done that does not condone assaulting him when he is defenseless like that. This is why the police are hated so much.
