Cops are either too racist or too scared to be granted the power of a gun and badge.

Protests took place this weekend in the Chicago suburb of Waukegan after a police officer shot and killed 19-year-old Marcellis Stinnette and injured his 20-year-old girlfriend Tafara Williams. According to a CNN report, Police Chief Wayne Walles has fired the officer without waiting for the bulls#!t bureaucracy to protect the indefensible cop.
“The City of Waukegan terminated the officer that discharged his firearm during that incident, for multiple policy and procedure violations,” Waukegan Police Chief Wayne Walles said Friday in a news release, without detailing those violations or naming the officer.
ABC 7 Chicago
was able to speak to Tafara Williams from her hospital bed where she is recovering from her gunshot wounds. She was obviously very upset and traumatized
by what happened to her and her now-deceased boyfriend.
“Why did you shoot? I didn’t do nothing wrong,” Williams says in the video. “I have a license. You didn’t tell me I was under arrest. Why did you just flame up my car like that? Why did you shoot?
You can see her message in full in the clip below.
This case has been relinquished to the Illinois State Police who will conduct an investigation into the details of the shooting.
Tafara and Marcellis were set upon by a Waukegan officer after someone reported a car with “suspicious” people inside. When a still-unidentified second officer came to assist the first-on-scene responder, Tafara put the car in reverse moving toward him. The officer then opened fire striking both Tafara and Marcellis. Both were taken to the hospital where Marcellis died.
Suffice to say, no one trusts the Illinois State Police to conduct an impartial investigation. Especially not members of Marcellis’ family-like Satrese Stallworth:
“We are seeking that someone be held accountable because this looks like murder…The police cannot police the police,” Stallworth said, “they cannot investigate and they cannot give us fair justice.”
Rest in peace Marcellis Stinnette, a speedy recovery to Tafara Williams, hell below for this protected, murderous, trigger-happy cop.
