    Cop Cleared In Killing Of Unarmed Man In Marijuana Raid
    By Steve Elliott in News

    [​IMG]

    The Las Vegas police officer who shot and killed an unarmed Trevon Cole during a June drug raid over small-time marijuana sales was "justified," a coroner's inquest found Saturday night, despite contradictory findings from the medical examiner.

    Cole, 21, and his eight-months-pregnant fianc?, Sequoia Pearce, 20, were at their apartment when police serving a search warrant burst through the door, reports Phillip Smith at StoptheDrugWar.org. Cole was shot in the bathroom by Detective Bryan Yant who, in testimony Saturday, said he kicked in the bathroom door and claimed he saw Cole squatting by the toilet, apparently flushing marijuana.

    Yant claimed he saw Cole rise to his feet "while moving his hands in a shooting motion" and that he saw something silvery or metallic in Cole's hand. He then fired once, killing Cole.

    "Unfortunately, he made an aggressive act toward me," claimed Yant under questioning from Assistant District Attorney Chris Owens. "He made me do my job."

    It's unfortunate that Detective Yant believes "his job" is shooting and killing unarmed marijuana suspects.

    ?Owens questioned Yant sharply at times, suggested the officer's weapon had accidentally discharged as he busted through the door. Owens cited the position of Cole's body on the floor and the downward trajectory of the bullet as it entered his cheek before lodging in his neck, which suggests that Cole was still kneeling when shot.

    Another one!!!


    Geez - this is getting totally out of hand - and I'm starting to feel real uncomfortable. Its like we as AA's are in a war zone getting shot at without a gun to fire back. As a matter of fact it is illegal to fire back and so we are like those moving targets at the fair where a police officer wins a prize by shooting us down.


    Peace

    Its ok brother, judgement day is here upon these beasts, the eye for an eye is in effect already, we have god on ourside in this battle brother, therefore salvation and freedom from this is destined, its one enslaver and devil, and one god, and god always wins as well as his chosen people, the original black man and woman.

    These brothers and sisters thats fell did not go in vain, and will be repaid back for their blood, as well as all our ancestors that are at the bottom of oceans and buried in this faraway land away from our family in the motherland.......those two shall meet again, and the last shall be first once more, its in the process of evolving now brother.

    Something tells me that when they are referring to us, the word "criminal" is not used.
    They're just blatantly killing us one by one, and getting away with it. I also always feel uneasy when I hear that word "justified" when it's used to validate killing one of us. To me, it sounds like a code word to the rest to "GO!".

    It's looking like an epidemic.
