tomorrow. so excited :)
My girl Dakota (right) met another husky named Koda (left) at the vet the other day
Omari Grant, 11, of Henry County, Ga., (pictured) said that he was terrified after a police officer pulled a gun on him while he and his friends were building a tree fort in their neighborhood, WSB-TV 2 reports.
Grant, a 5th grade student, says he and his friends often play in the wooded area behind his home, but a neighbor in his subdivision called the cops to complain about their activities. What exactly happened that lead up to the cop allegedly pulling the gun on the boy is not clear, but Grant said he followed the cop’s orders.
“I was thinking that I don’t want to be shot today, so I just listened to what they said,” Grant recalled.
Janice Baptiste, the boy’s mother, filed an excessive force complaint with the department. “So my son was of course traumatized by that,” she said.
A WSB-TV reporter spoke to Edgar Dillard, whose wife, according to 911 records, called the cops to complain about the boys “chopping off tree limbs.” Dillard said he was shocked that a gun was pulled on the child to deal with what he believed as a safety issue.
“There were falling hazards, tripping hazards, all types of hazards, so No. 1 was concern for the children and concern for the environment,” Dillard said.
No arrests were made, but the department is now investigating the officer’s actions.
“If it was justified then we’ll deal with it, if it wasn’t we’ll address it as well,” said Sgt. Joey Smith with the Henry County Police Department.
Grant said maybe he and his friends should not have been in the trees that day, but was still shocked that he needed a gun pointed at him to learn his lesson.
This cop deserves to die.
Point blank period
I’m over it.
What. The. Fuck. -_-
I like how you guys are condemning the cops before an investigation is even carried out. instantly taking the side of the other person. Unless the officer was insanely stupid i doubt he’d draw his gun for this.
"I like how you guys are condemning the cops before an investigation is even carried out. "
Umm, you mean like the way the cop did when he pulled a firearm out at a 10 year old building a treehouse?
"Unless the officer was insanely stupid i doubt he’d draw his gun for this."
…You must be white.
and my race has what do with this exactly?
Your lack of awareness of the systemic violence carried out upon people of color by the police for no reason, in many cases.
I fail to see what my race has to do with that. I also fail to see where it discloses the officers race and if this was a hate crime or not. I also fail to see where the mother mentions if it was or not, which if it was the case im sure she would have definitely have mentioned it.
Explain how you can, without an air of irony, make a statement that implies that this also would’ve happened to a white child.
I see you’re from Ireland. Look up Sean Bell, Amadou Diallo, Trayvon Martin, Abner Louima, Renisha McBride, Oscar Grant, or Rodney King and educate yourself.
So what if i am from Ireland? As I said not one mention of it being a race crime was mentioned by either the press or the victims mother. You’re just jumping to conclusions because of his skin colour.
This douche is every white person obstructing justice.
Every one making sure we don’t act.
Once again bringing race into this. Profiling me as a white racist when ive pointed out that race isnt mentioned except by tumblr people. Not even thr mother of the child mentions it. Do one pal.
