Travis Allen, 17, w/m, unarmed, shot twice in the back at close range and killed by Bellaire police Sgt. Michael Leal, 30, while pinned face down to the floor by officer Carle Upshaw’s foot on his back. Allen, high on drugs, had smashed through the patio door of a Bellaire home, whose owner called police. Police say Allen disobeyed them, had reached for something in his pocket and was attempting to roll over, causing Leal to “fear for his own life.” But marks on Allen’s hands indicate he had been handcuffed. Two grand jury members said they felt pressured to not indict by a politically connected fellow juror. Both officers were no-billed.

Not only did these cops get away with murder, but the shooter, Officer Leal, has since been promoted within his department. He now supervises everyone who investigated him. The Bellaire Police Dept. basically congratulated him for killing an unarmed teenager.

Moments later, a second shot was fired that hit Austin in the head.

Aaron was shot and killed after he emerged from a Northeast Portland apartment where officers had been called to perform a welfare check on a suicidal, armed man. He was distraught because his brother had just passed away from heart disease in the hospital. He was hit multiple times with bean bag rounds in quick succession, and as he instinctively reached down to where he was hit, the officer drilled him through the back with an AR-15. It was over in seconds. I witnessed it.

Officer Verdoni was off duty, did not have dash camera on. Did not bring the proper equipment with him or was wearing appropriate clothing. Chased suspect for blocks, accused suspect of "going for his gun." Eyewitnesses had sketchy descriptions and some changed their story later. Officer had angry confrontations later with protesters. Was exonerated the very next day by Sheriff's office. Kid was branded a "thug" by blog commenters simply because he was underage drunk and pulled a prank. This case has always stunk to high heaven. Venice is mostly a retirement community without many college age kids living here. This was just a stupid prank and the officer raged, hunted him down, and found an excuse to kill him. I really hope this gets opened up and investigated again.

On November 25, 2011, at approximately 6:15 p.m., patrol officers responded to the 21000 block of Aquasco Road for an armed individual who was threatening to commit suicide. After the subject discharged his handgun at the on-scene officers and refused all communication, a barricade situation was initiated.

A short time later, the armed subject exited the home, confronted the officers, and refused the officers’ commands to put his weapons down. Fearing for his safety and the safety of other officers on the scene, one Prince George’s County patrol officer discharged his County-issued weapon, striking the subject.

A Chicago police officer shot and killed a man she had been chasing after he jumped her in an alley, punched her and tried to grab her gun Thursday morning in the Englewood neighborhood, officials said.

The chase began about 2 a.m. when the officer and her partner tried to stop a car with four men inside, police said. The driver took off with the officers in pursuit, said Pat Camden, a police spokesman.

The car slammed into a garage in the 7400 block of South Emerald Avenue, and the men jumped out and ran, Camden said.

An officer followed one of the men into a dark gangway, where the man jumped out, punched her in the face and grabbed for her gun, Camden said.

As the two struggled, the officer began to feel faint. Fearing she would lose her grip on her gun, the officer shot the man, Camden said.

"Any cop in fear of losing their weapon would be in fear of their life," he said.

Devon Ross, 27, of the 500 block of East 60th Street, was pronounced dead at the scene, said the Cook County medical examiner's office.

Not of Hispanic or Latino origin
On June 4, 2012, at approximately 8:50 a.m., Lompoc Police Officers responded to 208 South I Street, in Lompoc on a "shots fired" call. The investigation revealed the occurrence of the following events. Lawrence Kitchen became involved in a dispute with a neighbor's visitor over parking in the multi-unit residential property. Kitchen armed himself with a shotgun and handgun. He confronted Michelle Velasquez and shot her with the shotgun, injuring her and killing a small dog she was holding. Kitchen then pointed his weapon at Eusebio Ruiz who was attempting to seek refuge in apartment #1. Kitchen shot Ruiz in the torso and leg. When confronted by officers and instructed to drop the weapon and get down, he pointed his weapon at Lompoc Police Officers Dan Sessions and Willie Francis. Both officers fired at Kitchen. They hit Kitchen twice. Kitchen died at the scene. The District Attorney's role in reviewing this homicide is to determine whether the shooting of Lawrence Alan Kitchen was lawful and to provide a detailed explanation to the public about the facts and the law in that regard. As stated in Graham v. Connor (1989) 490 U.S. 386, this process "requires careful attention to the facts and circumstances." Hence, this analysis will give careful attention to both the facts and the circumstances of the fatal shooting of Lawrence Alan Kitchen.

Robert Cameron Redus23MaleWhiteUnknown6KilledUnarmedUnarmed
Robert Cameron Redus, who went by his middle name, was a 23-year-old honors student out celebrating the end of finals and the semester with friends the night of the incident. An autopsy report would later show that he was drunk and had traces of marijuana in his system. He was driving home to his off-campus apartment from a bar when Carter said he noticed Redus weaving between lanes and decided to follow him, although he did not know the driver was a UIW student.

University officials have repeatedly claimed Carter had the right as a sworn police office to interrupt his late night food run to a nearby Whataburger and pursue Redus, even though he was off campus and did not know the driver was a UIW student. Carter has been on paid leave since the incident, and in its response to the civil lawsuit UIW officials defended his shooting of Redus as justified.

There are inconsistencies in Carter’s version of events from the point he began to follow Redus north on Broadway through Alamo Heights, but what is not in dispute is that Carter attempted to arrest Redus outside his apartment as he exited his vehicle and a scuffle ensued. Carter said Redus resisted arrest and fought with him before Carter finally fired six shots at close range, striking Redus five times.

The incident occurred just after 3:45 p.m. near the intersection of East Harbor Boulevard and Figueroa Boulevard (map), where an officer was struck by a GMC Sonoma pickup truck, a spokesman for the Ventura Police Department said.

The driver of the truck was stopped by traffic officers, and as they were talking to him, he allegedly put the vehicle in reverse gear and smashed into a truck behind him, Wilson said.

“He put the truck back in drive, drove forward, striking one of our officers,” Wilson said. “That officer landed up on the hood of the [Sonoma] and into the windshield.”

The driver was hit when several officers opened fire

A police investigation determined that Franklin, who had broken into the house at 2717 Bryant Av. S. after fleeing police, charged at officers when he was discovered hiding behind a water heater in the home’s cramped and darkened basement. A violent brawl at close quarters erupted in gunfire when Franklin grabbed an MP5 machine pistol hanging from the shoulder of one of the officers and pulled the trigger, hitting officers Michael Meath and Ricardo Muro in the legs. Both survived. DNA analysis later showed that Franklin had touched the trigger of the gun.
Fearing that he was about to be shot, officer Lucas Peterson shot Franklin four times. Meath told investigators that he also shot four times at Franklin. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s autopsy found 10 bullet wounds on Franklin’s body; a police spokesman said that’s possible if some of the eight bullets the police fired made more than one wound as they passed through Franklin’s body.

Full disclosure: I am an attorney for the victim. The information below is from the police reports and witness statements. I'd be happy to email the police reports, investigations and witness statements if Deadspin would like to review the evidence itself.

Police were called because a neighbor believed 4 teenagers were smoking pot in an apartment complex's laundry room. The sheriff's office responded to the call because it was in the unincorporated part of Vista, California. A 25 year old female, alone, approached the four people. There was no signs of pot. Nevertheless, Deputy Storms decided to do a warrant check. She handcuffed one of the individuals and sat him down on the curb outside the laundry room. She went to handcuff the victim, who asked why he was being arrested. She told him to shut up or she would tase him. He then looked over his shoulder at her and she told him to turn around or she was going to tase him. She then bear hugged him. The victim (5'7" 190lbs (arrest records indicate 5'8" 220lbs, of course)), then tried to get away believing he was about to be tased. He pushed the officer out of the laundry room. She still had him in the bear hug position as if she was about to suplex him. The two fell to the ground, Deputy Storms falling on her back. Witnesses state that the victim never once tried to strike Deputy Storms and was struggling to try to get away. Deputy Storms discharged her taser during the fracas on the ground and the probes missed the victim but nearly hit the bystanders. The victim got to his feet and began to run. While he was at least 30 feet away, Deputy Storms shot him in the back. The bullet entered about 4" to the right of the spine, severed the victim's lung, liver and spleen and ultimately came to rest immediately behind his right nipple. The victim spent weeks in the hospital recovering.

The following day, Deputy Storms said that she looked up from the sidewalk and saw the victim with her taser and believed he was about to shoot her. The taser was on the ground about 40 feet from the victim at the time he was shot IN THE BACK, something that the journalists and officers doing the investigation fail to address in their coverage.
