Another Killing in Cleveland

Brandon Jones was killed by Cleveland Police last night, when they responded to a call of a yoputh stealing cigarrettes and change. Not to condone stealing, but I’m pretty sure it doesn’t carry the death penalty.

IMG_0318The people of Cleveland are tired of the police killing people in out streets. The people took to the street this afternoon to voice the grievance. STOP PROTECTING KILLER COPS! As you probably already know, the officers involved in this shooting are on “Paid Administrative Leave” Which means they get a vacation while all this is sorted out.

One protester had this to say.

“It take months for them to convict one of us for killing someone. It takes years to convict a cop, and then they don’t convict em!”

The city of Cleveland sent a councilman out to try to talk to the crowd and calm them down, but the crowd wasn’t havin it and chased the councilman away! I think the people of the city of Cleveland have had enough of the excuses and lies from the police department and all their apologists. I think they are tired of every time someone is killed in the hood, the city leaders just want the protesters to calm down and disperse and let the corrupt courts decide. They are tired of the lip service in which there is an excuse for every cop-involved killing. I think they are tired of the cops getting away with murder.

 

One of the protesters brought up an interesting point.

 “It’s the same prosecutors that prosecute the cops as prosecutes us! That has to be a conflict!”

 

If Brandon was involved in this robbery, did he deserve to die? Ademo just blogged about the Ryan Giroux case, here on CopBlock.org, where This man went on a killing spree, barricaded himself in a house, and was taken alive, while armed. Yet the Cleveland police kills everything that moves?! It doesn’t make any sense! If the police can take an armed gunman alive, who has already killed 6 people, why do they have such a hard time taking unarmed teenagers into custody without killing them?

Cleveland.com reports:
“Police at first said the shooting happened about 15 minutes after officers entered the store, but in a release sent out about 4:30 p.m. Thursday, police said Jones walked out of the closed store carrying a bag and a struggle ensued as officers tried to arrest him.

During the struggle, an officer fired his gun once, hitting Jones, police said. Officers called paramedics, who rushed him to MetroHealth Medical Center.”
