YVETTE SMITH'S KILLER COP RELEASED AFTER HE USES PERSONAL GUN TO MURDER HER

A REPOST 
There is so little coverage of the deaths of black women, that I missed this a few months ago

Yvette Smith's Murder



"Yvette Smith was seemingly trying to act as a peacemaker during a dispute between two men that involved a gun.

She called 911 about half an hour after midnight on 16 February 2014.

When Bastrop County police arrived at the house, at least one of the men was in the front yard and the worst of the disturbance appeared over.

Willis, who is white, saw Smith, a black 47-year-old former caretaker, and ordered her to come outside. As she opened the door he shouted “police!” then fired within about three seconds... using his personal AR-15 semi-automatic rifle." (This gun is the mass shooter's weapon of choice, by the way.)

"In finding ex-Deputy Daniel Willis not guilty of murder in the Feb. 16, 2014, shooting of Yvette Smith, visiting Judge Albert McCaig Jr. called Willis, 31, the “man in the arena,” referring to a Theodore Roosevelt speech that praised those willing to take risks in the face of failure/"

After essentially killing Smith's killer a hero, Judge McCaig set Willis free despite the fact that Willis lied and lied and lied some more. It came out during the trial that Willis has night-blindness that he routinely refuses to wear glasses for. The gun he said he saw, through various different version of the story, did not exist.
