Police Respond To Grandson Holding Grandfather At Knife Point, End Up Killing Them Both
Its not entirely the cops fault. But, they could have done better. Remember, when the bullets start flyin' the cops start lyin'. Being better shots and not shooting like it is the shootout at the OK Corral comes to mind. They were at point blank range. They withheld the body cams as long as they could from the public (why don't they waive a we screwed up flag). They have investigated themselves and found themselves innocent of any crimes. I am shocked. Here is the backstory with my thoughts in (parenthesis):
The Will County Sheriff's Office released body camera video showing the moments deputies shot and killed a grandfather and his grandson inside their Joliet Township home last year. This comes after months of CBS 2's reporting about a lack of transparency with how the sheriff's office communicated what happened to the public, and their refusal to initially release the video or any police reports. (They were getting their lies and crimes straight between them).
On 11-6 -21, deputies responded to a call about an argument between 70-year-Grandfather and his 21-year-old grandson, Jabbar Muhammad. The caller, a relative, said Muhammad had a knife and was arguing with Wells. (What did they think was going to happen...a conversation over coffee and a doughnut?)
According to records and interviews with family members, it appeared Muhammad was in the midst of a mental health crisis when deputies arrived that day. This was the second time in 10 days deputies were called to the home. Records show they responded to a suicide attempt by Muhammad on Oct. 27. He was admitted to the hospital and treated. He was released just a few hours before the fatal incident. (The cops tried to deescalate it, they screamed and pointed a gun at the dude).
Police said they attempted to de-escalate the situation. But when Muhammad stabbed Wells in the neck, police fired shots several times "in defense of Eldred's life," a statement from the task force investigating the incident said at the time. (Seriously) But the statement left out a key detail – deputies shot and killed Wells too. An autopsy report shows Wells died of multiple gunshot wounds. (The coroner also says stab wounds but remember who he works for just like the prosecutor).
"This 70-year-old Black male, Eldred J. Wells, died of Multiple Gunshot Wounds. Multiple Stab and Incised Wounds were significant contributing factors to his death," the Will County Coroner's Office wrote in its opinion on March 1. (You need an independent autopsy).
Sheriff's deputies are seen approaching the doorway to the home and announcing themselves. After entering, Muhammad and Wells are seen standing near each other. A deputy repeatedly orders Muhammad to put down the knife. Muhammad refuses. Approximately 33 seconds after the deputies first entered the home, Muhammad lunges toward his grandfather and stabs him. Deputies fire shots at Muhammad, and both he and his grandfather fall to the floor. (Grandpa was trying to help the kid to the last instead of getting out of the way).
Family members of Wells and Muhammad sued the sheriff's office in October, accusing deputies of failing to separate the two before firing shots. The lawsuit also accuses the deputies of yelling at the scene and agitating Muhammad before he lunged at Wells with the knife. (Separate? Was this a boxing match? They were yelling at him and pointing guns at him in order to deescalate the situation)
"I just want to know what happened. Why?" said Rhonda Wells, the mother of Muhammad and the daughter of Eldred Wells. (You did such a great job of raising your kid that now you have no kid and one less parent stupid).
After CBS 2 first reported about the shooting in April, Will County officials privately showed family members the video, but did not release it publicly until Monday. Deputy Chief Dan Jungles said the internal affairs investigation was complete and there were no findings of wrongdoing by the officers as of Monday afternoon. The deputies were also cleared of any criminal charges after an investigation by the Will County State's Attorney's Office. (I wish I could go back and investigate everything I ever did wrong and come to a conclusion about my integrity, innocence and etc.)
So there you have it. Notice that after the two were down they stopped shooting and them shot them some more. Way overkill. In any kind of a domestic situation you must expect that is is a likely outcome that someone is going to get shot. Being a cop is a crappy job, but they are not trained properly and they are trained to kill and go home having done a good job because they are still alive. I have no doubt that someone will get a payday out of this, probably a lawyer.
Here is why you get killed calling the cops:
Ever wonder why cops treat people the way they do? The police trainer who teaches them to kill.
