Oklahoma Cops Kill Naked Black Teenager
Will a day EVER come where there aren’t several of these “cop kills a black person” stories almost every single week?
According to BuzzfeedNews, police in Edmond, Oklahoma killed 17-year-old high school student Isaiah Lewis who was unarmed at the time his life was stamped out by a service weapon.
A woman called 911 to report that two girls came into her home claiming that they were assaulted by the teenager, a manhunt for the boy began.
“Two girls, two white ladies,” the 911 caller said. “I guess the boyfriend is beating up on one of them.”
One of the girls then told the 911 dispatcher that her boyfriend had “flipped out” and had been acting weird since arriving at her house.
“I have no idea what’s going on,” she told the dispatcher.
Another witness called 911 to report a Black male getting naked and running down the street “with nothing on but some light socks.”
Officers in an unmarked car say they witnessed Lewis hopping fences and breaking into a home. Upon following him into the house, the TWO cops say they were “violently assaulted” by the naked teen. After allegedly using the taser on Lewis, one officer pulled his gun and fired several shots. Lewis was pronounced DOA at the hospital.
Neither officer was wearing a body camera. A criminal investigation into the shooting is ongoing. Both cops are on admin assignment until the details are sorted out.
