DETROIT (AP) — A prosecutor has told jurors that a Detroit police officer flunked his training when he fatally shot a 7-year-old girl during a raid in 2010.
Joseph Weekley is on trial a second time for the death of Aiyana Stanley-Jones, who was sleeping on a couch during a police search for a murder suspect. A jury couldn’t reach a verdict last year on a charge of involuntary manslaughter.
Weekley says his gun went off when Aiyana’s grandmother grabbed it. Mertilla Jones denies it.
There’s no dispute that Aiyana’s death wasn’t intentional. But prosecutor Rob Moran told jurors Thursday that Weekley shouldn’t have had his finger on the trigger when he and officers stormed the home.
Defense attorney Steve Fishman says Aiyana’s death was an accident — not a crime.
Anonymous: Since 1975, 92% of blacks murdered in the US were killed by blacks. While only 86% of Whites killed in the US were murdered by Whites. Blacks make up 12% of the US population and are responsible for nearly 40% of all violent crime. In NYC alone, in 2013, there were over 3000 reported rapes, approximately 40% were committed by blacks. Look in the mirror more, point fingers less.
Here’s just some of the shit white people are responsible for
- Killing between 10 million and 20 million Native Americans from diseases alone and wiping out up to 95% of the entire population (x)
- Killing about 11 million people in the Holocaust, including, but not limited to, PoC, homosexuals, and people with mental disorders and physical/mental disabilities. (x) (x)
- Taking about 11.8 million Africans and enslaving those who survived the trips. (x) (x) Between 1882-1968 (86 years) the Tuskegee Institute recorded 3,446 lynchings of black people. (x)
Of the 67 mass shootings in the US between 1982-2012, 44 were committed by white people (x)
Meanwhile, black on black homicides have decreased by 67% in 20 years, a sharper rate of decrease than white on white homicide. 83% of white mµrders in 2011 were within-race killings, and only 14% were black on white.
Look in the mirror more, point fingers less.
(Btw, “black on black” crime doesn’t have shit to do with Darren Wilson murdering Mike Brown)
Also since when are black people killing other black people BECAUSE they are black???
"What will be, will be"...or something like that
