India Kager

India Kager (1988-2015), an unarmed Black American woman, mother of two, was gunned down by police in Virginia Beach, Virginia on September 5th 2015. In February 2016 her mother put up a tearful video on Facebook asking for justice:

 

“I can’t even tell you how bad this hurts …”

 

The police will not even say who did it.

 

On September 5th 2015, Kager was driving home her boyfriend, Angelo Perry. In the back seat was her four-month-old baby, Roman. Just before midnight they stopped at a 7-Eleven store at 2093 Lynnhaven Parkway. Police officers appeared. In 15 seconds they fired 30 bullets. The police say Perry shot first. No police officer was injured. She and Perry died in a hail of bullets. Her baby lived.

Cops shoot at unarmed driver’s car. Driver Explains Why He Led Police On Chase

Waco, TX – Running from the police seems to a very controversial subject in the media today, with a prevailing attitude that it is somehow wrong or “stupid” to run from the police. However, running from a hostile force that is likely to use violence against you is one of the most basic and instinctual things that a person can do. This is especially true for people with prior records or people who dress differently because they are automatically profiled by police and treated as if they were criminals from the very start of the encounter.

 

Last week, a man in Texas who was traveling with a small amount of marijuana decided that he was not going to pull over to be harassed by police when he saw their lights in his rear-view mirror. He ran instead, just as any sane person would do when they encountered a kidnapper or a thief.

 

His decision resulted in a high-speed chase which exceeded speeds of 100 miles per hour and spanned across five counties.

 

The driver, Jonathan Davis, was eventually stopped by police after roughly an hour when they blew out his tire with spike strips and then shot at his tires with live ammunition.

No Charges for Cop Who Killed Family’s Mentally Ill Son in His Underwear Holding a Broom on Video

Miami Gardens, FL — On February 15, Lavall Hall had a schizophrenic episode when he grabbed a broom and then went outside in his underwear. Unable to get her son back inside, Hall’s mother called the police for assistance to get her son back to the hospital, as he was only released one week prior.

 

Hall’s mother says that the police were aware of her son’s condition as they had responded to calls for medical assistance at her home in the past, and that she repeatedly told the officers that he was schizophrenic and bipolar on this evening.

 

“Don’t hurt my child,” the mother asked the officers before the encounter.

Woman With Asperger’s Who Touched Millions of Lives with Viral Video, Shot Dead by Police

As the Free Thought Project has pointed out in the past, the overwhelming majority of time spent by police during training is devoted to shooting their weapons. Very little time is set aside for training in de-escalation tactics, and most departments receive zero training in dealing with the mentally ill.
