FBI to Clear Police Officer
- Sneed has learned the FBI has joined a probe into the deadly police shooting late last December of Quintonio LeGrier, 19, whose neighbor, Bettie Jones, 55, was accidentally killed in the same incident late last December.
• Translation: Just days after the incident, State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez — who also called in the feds to assist in the probe of the Laquan McDonald police shooting — asked the FBI to assist in the LeGrier investigation, calling it a “deeply disturbing incident that demands a very deliberate and meticulous independent investigation.”
• Backstory: LeGrier and Jones were shot and killed by Chicago Police [...], responding to an early morning call for a domestic incident involving a bat wielding teen at an apartment building at 4710 W. Erie Street at 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 26. Jones, the mother of five, was accidentally shot while standing near the front door of the building.
So the feebs are here to conduct the same kind of thorough investigation that eventually cleared Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson of any wrong doing. Maybe they can stick around and see who ordered the controversial McDonald video to be withheld to influence and election, or where nearly $70 million in pension money disappeared, or why a federal wiretap was pulled down as a sitting governor was about to mention some very high-ranking names in Illinois (and national) politics...oh wait, forget that last one.
