Update: #Video of #BlackMale #JeremyMcDole Killed by 4 Delaware Cops, Wed…

I have had a long, depressing night dealing with … too much hate and harm or death(s). I can’t handle writing up all of what happened below but there’s been a vital update in the death of a Black male Wednesday which everyone needs to know (so we can fight even harder to get the killers locked away, for a start).

(Detailed info below, first, the update):

After his murder on Wednesday, an officer claimed the young man was suicidal; they also claim he had a handgun on him, which became one he reached for when they said to put his hands up, obviously. The young man, paralyzed from the waist down, was shot to death by cops at the scene.

They’ve stated he was suicidal when they came. They also claim he reaches for his gun, points it and that’s why they opened fire, or, according to other reports the police said, he reached for a gun and shot it up in the air! This is not seen at all, not once, in the video. Additionally, his uncle had been with him only 15 minutes before they arrived. He stated that Jeremy had no gun, a bag, but no gun.

His uncle, Eugene Smith, stated it had only been 15 minutes since he last saw Jeremy, unarmed, he said.

“He had a book bag, but I never seen a gun,” he said. “It was an execution. That’s what it was. I don’t care if he was black, white, whatever.”

[It’s no secret police are willing and do resort to planting weapons on victims. Who is to say that isn’t the case here?]

In the video,
I would love to see where he’s pulling his gun out or pointing it in the air, or aiming at police. His mother stated similar; if he was about to shoot, why do we never see any of what the cops claim?….

I don’t believe he had a gun; I don’t believe he was suicidal and there is no justification for the killing these 4 Delaware cops committed. But I do want to say this:

Even if there was a gun on his person; he does NOT point it at anyone, nor does he shoot it up in the air >.> so in this ‘pretend world’ the man would have only been exercising his 2nd amendment right to bear arms. Had he actually been armed, his murder is just as unjustified as is now, in reality, where he did not have a gun aiming or shooting nor was he threatening to.

One more issue that disturbs me is how the government and media use a persons past record or lifestyle or whatever, to try and make him seem more likely to have been to blame, even with a video to prove otherwise. Cops can get away with anything; we all know it, so…

Any and all “for-profit” stations that’ve mentioned Jeremy’s death have dug out all they could; anything, That, is invasion of privacy in my opinion. It also would be a reason for changing jurisdiction as anyone who hears these pointless, random and unrelated things about him, like smoking weed and other irrelevant stuff -all which more than likely have been exaggerated by the media for ratings, of course- means these cops are not going to get a fair trial as the jurors may hae already formed opinions based on the local media and their pointless history lesson on Jeremy’s short life. Either way, the police are usually cleared as in the right just by seeing them in their uniform. TO PROTECT AND SERVE. How do they ever, ever sleep or look in a mirror at themselves?

I pasted from RT.  I gotta say this & then I’ll leave the article and etc for you to read and share.

But first, death and murder is not new to me; it never has been, child or adult, I understood and have seen too much.

But the question on my mind now is if all that cops do still bothers me, how do these sick, racist, cruel cops sleep or look at themselves? Why is self-hatred not destroying them; why is the government not punishing them and using prison for real criminals?! *sigh* I can’t rewrite this tragedy; my spirits are sad so while I wait I’m going for a walk with my music.

New cellphone footage allegedly shows Delaware police officers in a fatal encounter with a man in a wheelchair on Wednesday. The officers had responded to a call reporting that the man had shot himself. A relative called the death an “execution.”

Article Pasted from RT below:

The video allegedly depicts the grizzly shooting of Jeremy McDole, a 28-year-old African-American who was sitting in a wheelchair, by three white Delaware police officers.

The footage opens with a white officer running towards McDole saying, “He’s over here! Show me your hands! Show me your hands.”

Then McDole comes into view sitting upright in his wheelchair. Off-screen, a shot is fired. It is not clear where the shot comes from.

McDole is then seen leaning forward while still sitting in the chair.

The police officer continues to yell at the man, demanding that he show his hands and repeatedly shouting, “Drop the gun,” with bystanders yelling in chorus “Drop the gun.”

Two more police officers arrive on the scene and also shout “Drop the gun” several times.

Off-screen, a man’s can be heard saying “Put your hands up, cus. They shot his ass.”

The police officers continue shouting for McDole to show his hands, then the camera zooms in and blood can be seen around McDole’s neck area. He is gently rocking back and forth in the wheelchair, moving his hands along his legs but not raising them. Police, meanwhile, keep yelling for him to put his hands up.

The footage then narrows to show just McDole, and the police officers are no longer visible. A volley of at least 7 shots can be heard.

McDole then slumps left, rolls out of his chair and falls to the ground, with blood visible on the front of his body

Police have released few details, but they said McDole had a handgun when officers allegedly shot him to death.

At a press conference held at the scene of the shooting on Thursday, a crowd of two dozen people gathered to protest the incident.

McDole’s uncle, Eugene Smith, was among them.

McDole’s uncle, Eugene Smith, was among a crowd of a couple dozen people who gathered Thursday at the scene of the shooting. Smith said he was with his nephew about 15 minutes before shooting and he didn’t see a gun.
