One Year Later Dayton, Ohio Police Overseer Sean Williams is still on the job, in spite of the fact that store video cameras caught him not only show him committing the outright EXECUTION of young John Crawford-but also show that he lied about first ordering Crawford to put the BB Gun down. Ronald Ritchie, the scumbag that called 911 & reported that a Black Guy "was waving a gun and pointing it at customers," was never charged with any crime for admittedly lying to police. A young Black Man's life is gone, and in a sad twist of fate, his girlfriend (Tasha Thomas) was killed in a car crash this past January. So now John & Tasha's two children will grow up without their parents.
As 22-year-old John Crawford was shopping in a Beaver Creek, Ohio Wal-Mart, I'm sure the last thing on his mind would be that thus could be his last day on Earth. Much like I'm sure that holding & examining an air rifle, IN THE Toy AISLE, would make him deemed an immediate threat to those inside. But alas, another black Man has died for no other reason than being a perceived threat to someone's racial prejudices, stereotypes & fears.
As the story goes, a 911 Call was made-advising that a someone had a loaded gun inside the Wal-Mart. It is unclear as to exactly what happened next; but in the end, John Crawford now lies dead. According to his companion, LeeCee Johnson, Crawford could be overheard saying “It’s not real” as they were on the phone at the time of the incident. Next she heard the police say “get on the ground” then gunfire. A statement, released by the Beaver Creek Police Department, advises that “Responding officers confronted the suspect inside the store area and the subject was shot after failing to comply with officers verbal commands.” A second person, identified as 37 year old Angela Williams also died during the incident. According to reports, she collapsed-while running away from the area-and died. Her true cause of death may not be known for a few weeks; but WE ALL KNOW WHY OUR BROTHER JOHN CRAWFORD DIED. The value of a Black Person's right to Safety & freedom is alarmingly low these days...
