- A Chicago family is searching for answers after police fatally shot a man early Thursday morning.
Devon Ross, 27, was shot and killed by a Chicago police officer in the Englewood neighborhood. Authorities say Ross punched the officer several times in the face while trying to take her gun away after a foot pursuit.
Supporters of Ross admit he ran from police, but they say, that did not justify the shooting that ended his life on Thanksgiving.
Yeah, because these people actually know the law, were witnesses to the event, or have some fucking blinding insight into the events of the evening.
"He tried to climb the gate. She pulled him down by his dreads. He was on the ground. He got up. She shot him and killed him; she murdered him," said witness Khristian Triplett.
"She snatched him down by his dreads. He said, 'I ain't got nothing.' He didn't get down fast enough...boom, boom, twice. He went down, and she shot him a third time," said Kenneth Cobbin, also a witness.
[...] "My son wasnt like that he was a good young man, working hard, trying to get his life back on track. He had problems in the early stages of life," father William Ross said.
Not a single one of these people was there. And the problems he had during the "early stages of life" must have just ended a month ago when the assailant was acquitted of multiple weapon charges in a bench trial.
If anyone has the name of that judge by the way, post it here.
- "He's an excellent father, working for the government as a postal worker. He never had any type of run-ins with the law," said William Beck, suspect's cousin.
Aside from those weapon charges you mean.
And here's the scumbag comments of the year by Channel 7's very own Jessica D'Onofrio and Jason Knowles. Remember those names boys and girls - they are police haters, plain and simple:
- As for the female officer, ABC7 is told she was treated and released from an area hospital after suffering injuries to her hand and presumably injuries to her face, if in fact she was punched.
What the fuck sort of comment is that? A cop does a fantastic job retaining her weapon and dispatching an assailant with a lengthy criminal record who would have done god knows what had he successfully disarmed her and Channel 7 prints and broadcasts this crap? What a load of shit.
