GA Officer Shoots Herself, Blames A Black Man
Another day, another officer playing games with Black lives. This time, thankfully, no one was gunned down in the street…unless you count the officer herself, who decided to make up some grand tale about a black man shooting her and running off. Via AJC:
An officer shot. A bullet stopped by body armor. A 10-day chase for an unidentified shooter.
A newly hired Jackson police officer told a compelling story about what happened late the night of Sept. 13. After only three months on the job, Sherry Hall found herself immersed in a high-profile shooting, pitting a white officer against a black man. At least, that was her account of what happened.
But she made the whole thing up, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
On Friday, Hall was charged with four felonies, including evidence tampering and giving false statements to investigators.
After her account began to unravel over the past two weeks, investigators were left with little to conclude other than she shot herself, but officials stopped short of saying so Friday.
“Cops are humans and they make mistakes, but this is not a mistake,” Butts County Sheriff Gary Long said at a news conference. “This is criminal.”
GBI Special Agent Joe Wooten said Hall is on paid administrative leave after checking herself into a “private facility” to seek help.
“Upon release, she will be arrested,” Wooten said.
SMH!!! Just think how her made-up story could have ENDED the life of a Black “suspect” if some of her coworkers saw someone that fit her imaginary description…
Seriously, what are the requirements to join the police force??
