Another Black, Unarmed, and Dead Post

Malissa Williams on the right with a friend

On the night of their murders in November of 2012, Malissa Williams and Timothy Russell were both homeless. At some point after Russell was pulled over for a turn signal violation, sped away. (Homeless No insurance maybe? Malissa was mentally ill, schizophrenic mentally ill and had had many contacts with the police.)

So at some point the car backfires and then some thirteen police officers fire 137 rounds into the car. Neither Malissa, who was shot 24 times, nor Russell, who was shot 23 times, was armed.

White Cleveland police Officer Michael Brelo was charged because  he  stood on the hood of the car and shot the unarmed pair 15 times just after other officers had already riddled the car with bullets. And Brelo was found not guilty today. 

I suppose 137 bullets fired, means 122 were fired before Brelo's television tough-guy cop stance on the roof of the car. I suppose that's why he was only ever charged with manslaughter. The only one charged....

And I do NOT HAVE TO suppose that this means he was never going to jail from the jump.  Reasonable doubt was packed into this case beforehand.

Family upset with Michael Brelo verdict, but it wasn't all Brelo's fault

Timothy Russell
I'm going to have to go back and check to see how many of my people are likely dead by white cop due to being poor.
