Sad News.. The trial to bring justice for Aiyana Stanely-Jones has just ended in a mistrial..For those who dont recall, Aiyana as the 7 year old from Detroit was shot and killed when a reckless police officer named Joseph Weekly along with a SWAT team busted into the wrong house..as they were trying to show off for a police reality TV show..
Aiyana was asleep in the same bed with her grandma when police tossed flash grenades causing her bed to catch on fire This lying cop told the jury that the grandma tried to grab his gun and that’s why he shot the little girl..Of course that was bullshyt.. In fact another officer backed the grandma who was startled from her sleep..
Yet here in this land called America, the police can do no wrong.. so no matter how strong the evidence and how egregious the crime, some simply cant accept the fact, that those who are charged with protecting and serving do not see Black folks as human beings.. Life is disposable.. whether ur a gun yielding thug or an innocent 7 year old… Weekly the officer who shot Ayanna gets to walk..
Lastly we should remind folks that such actions against little kids are not unsual.., A couple of years prior to 7 year old Aiyana being killed, a thousand miles away in Pittsburgh, a cop named Eric Tatusko who pulled over a mom for not coming to a full stop got upset that her 7 year old girl would not stop crying.. He pulled out his 9mm gun and threatened to shoot her if she didnt calm down..he then charged the mom with interference when she freaked out over the officer pulling a gun on her daughter.. The mom was cleared, the officer was not arrested or even disciplined.. he later went on to shoot and kill mentally ill man..
No Justice for Aiyana Mo’Nay Stanley Jones
