so a man is dead because he lied

When Ronald Ritchie called 911 from the aisles of a Walmart in western Ohio last month to report that a black man was “walking around with a gun in the store”, he said that shoppers were coming under direct threat. “He’s, like, pointing it at people,”

Ritchie told the dispatcher. Later that evening, after John Crawford III had been shot dead by one of the police officers who hurried to the scene in Beavercreek, Ritchie repeated to reporters:

“He was pointing at people. Children walking by.”

One month later, Ritchie puts it differently. “At no point did he shoulder the rifle and point it at somebody,” the 24-year-old said, in an interview with the Guardian.

He maintained that Crawford was “waving it around”, which attorneys for Crawford’s family deny.

Ritchie told several reporters after the 5 August shooting that he was an “ex-marine”. When confronted with his seven-week service record, however, he confirmed that he had been quickly thrown out of the US marine corps in 2008 after being declared a “fraudulent enlistment”, over what he maintains was simply a mixup over his paperwork.

Crawford, 22, turned out to be holding an unloaded BB air rifle that he had picked up from a store shelf. After Ritchie said Crawford appeared to be “trying to load” the gun, the 911 dispatcher relayed to an officer that it was believed the gunman “just put some bullets inside”.

The Crawfords’ attorneys told the Guardian that they had learned the preliminary findings of an autopsy were that he was shot in the back of his left arm and in his left side, supporting their claim that he was turned away from the police officer who shot him.

They have pleaded with Mike DeWine, Ohio’s attorney general, to release the store’s surveillance footage of the shooting to the public. Having viewed it, they say that it disproves Ritchie’s version of what led to the deaths of both Crawford and a 37-year-old woman who collapsed and died in the ensuing panic.

“It was an execution, no doubt about it,” alleged Crawford’s father, John Crawford II. “It was flat-out murder. And when you see the footage, it will illustrate that.”

DeWine has said that releasing the footage would be “playing with dynamite” and prevent any trial from being fair

The attorneys said that they would also be lodging a complaint with DeWine after Ritchie told the Guardian that he, too, was shown the surveillance footage by officials in the attorney general’s bureau of criminal investigation, who are investigating the shooting.

From this point, the Crawford team’s description of what is shown in the surveillance footage differs radically from Ritchie’s recollection, which he insisted was also backed up by the recordings from the Walmart cameras.

Crawford’s father and attorneys said that the footage showed the 22-year-old walking from one aisle to the next with the BB rifle at his side and in his left hand, pointed at the floor except for one notable movement.

“I would think that the rifle maybe got heavy to him,” said his father. “He kind of swung it like you carry it on your shoulder, then he immediately put it back down.” “You can clearly see people walk past him, and they didn’t think anything about it.

Everybody was just kind of minding their own business,” his father added. “He wasn’t acting in any type of way that he would have been considered menacing, if you will.

^^I hope people don't forget him and protest for him too. This needs to make national news as well. He was on the ground crying and the animals executed him anyway. I can only imagine the terror of his last moments. He was a handsome young man. You can't even go shopping now. How come they're not mobilizing in Dayton?

Cops Who Killed John Crawford III At Ohio Walmart Shot Him 'On Sight': Attorney

The Huffington Post  | By Andres Jauregui
  •   John Crawford III







Surveillance video from an Ohio Walmart shows that a man fatally shot by police earlier this month had his back to officers and was talking on a cell phone, an attorney for the man's family says.

John Crawford III died Aug. 5 after Beavercreek police responded to reports of an armed man at a Dayton-area Walmart. Crawford was not armed -- he had a pellet gun with him, which he had picked up in the store's toy department.

Attorney Michael Wright said that the video, which he was allowed to view with the man's family, contradicts statements by police and witnesses that Crawford ignored commands to drop the gun and “looked like he was going to go violently.”

“John was doing nothing wrong in Walmart, nothing more, nothing less than shopping,” Wright said in a statement. He said the 22-year-old father of two was shot "on sight" in a "militaristic" response by police.

LeeCee Johnson, the mother of Crawford's children, was on the phone with him when he was shot. She told the Dayton Daily News:

"[The] next thing I know, he said ‘It’s not real,’ and the police start shooting and they said ‘Get on the ground,’ but he was already on the ground because they had shot him... I could hear him just crying and screaming. I feel like they shot him down like he was not even human.”

The Ohio attorney general’s office said that the gun Crawford was carrying was an MK-177 BB/pellet rifle, also known as a “variable pump air rifle.”

A special prosecutor is scheduled to present the case to a grand jury Sept. 22, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced Tuesday.

Beavercreek Police Sgt. David Darkow, one officer involved in the shooting, returned to duty last week. The other officer, Sean Williams, remains on administrative leave.

One of the officers in Crawford's death was involved in a 2010 shooting that was ruled self-defense, according to the Associated Press. Authorities would not confirm which officer it was.

About the guys who was shot in Walmart.  Can find the thread but..

His father and family lawyer met with the prosecutor and viewed the surveillance tapes police were holding from the public.  After the meeting the prosecutor announced he will appoint a special grand jury.  Father said the prosecutor told him you will have justice.  They agreed not to discuss the tapes contents but the lawyer said the viewing confirms this was murder.  Coroner ruled it a homicide as well. 

I hope these mutherfckas are starting to understand we're done with excuses.

You are not wrong about the complexities that brought an end to slavery but no denying the grass roots efforts by white and black activists. 

You're right and Lincoln didn't even actually end slavery IMO.  Wasn't even part of his end game.  It was all political and part of a larger propaganda effort to be as culturally sophisticated as European nations that began to see slavery as an abomination.  And because he was the president and he said so.  Power move.

I'm saying any suggestion that blacks mobilized and freed themselves however is just wishful thinking.  I'm not saying that's what you're saying but with this thread its sort of an underlying implication.   We have never had that kind of power here.  Poor white people don't even have that kind of power.... yet.  We're all pretty fckd TBH.




I think whites did help, of course, after all, a white person signed the end of the slavery, and many whites disagreed with slavery, but I do not believe for a second that any of them woke up feeling guilty about their white privilege or over slavery. If they had, they would have done more for blacks after slavery ended such as providing housing or jobs, or teaching people trades or even sending them to Africa.

This man also did not deserve to die. He shouted it was fake and they just shot him and then said "get on the ground" as if his body wasn't already on the ground.

Tomorrow it will be another black person being roughed up by the police, arrested for nothing, killed for nothing and nothing will change. The black community needs to get together. When the Hispanic immigrants were trying to prove their purchasing power, they had a day that no one purchased nothing here in LA - or the whole country, not sure. Why can't African Americans do something like that or just get together and show their discontent with this police brutality?


You know what, sexy, I'm finally accepting this. Not starting any threads like this anymore. It's too disheartening. Black people are powerless and fucced, they keep saying. The end.
