EJ Bradford Was Shot In The Back According To Private Autopsy
The story of Emantic “E.J.” Bradford Jr. is as sad and infuriating as any we’ve ever heard. For those who aren’t aware, we reported previously that Bradford was killed by Hoover police in Birmingham, Alabama on Thanksgiving Day after a fight broke out in the Riverchase Mall. The ever-changing story the police gave to justify the killing went from vague to downright suspect.
Well, now, according to NOLA, we see why the cops haven’t been forthright with their assessment of how and why EJ was shot dead. Family lawyer Ben Crump had EJ’s body examined by chief forensic pathologist for the Washington D.C. area Dr. Roger Mitchell. Dr. Mitchell confirmed that EJ was shot 3 times, once in the head, once in the neck, and once in the back, all the bullets entered through his back, which means he was running AWAY from the police who wanted to kill him.
“Good guys with guns”, huh, NRA? GTFOHWTBS.
“There is a laceration of the right side of the face at the eyebrow consistent with falling face forward on the right side of the head,” Crump wrote in a document provided at the news conference. “The cause of death is gunshot wound of the head. The manner of death is homicide.”
Hoover Police Chief Nick Derzis has announced that details about the killing including the video footage will not be released at this time.
We hope and pray that the Bradford family can get justice for their son and loved one. The police cannot continue to get away with these “mistakes” and lies. F**k 12.
