Walmart Video Shows John Crawford Was Shot on Sight By Cops With No Warning, Family Attorneys Say

jessehimself:

Wright, who has seen store surveillance video of the shooting incident, said Crawford was shot while talking on the phone, holding the butt of the gun with the barrel pointed at the floor.

He said Crawford was “shot on sight” in a “militaristic” response.

“Everything released is one-sided.  There is nothing favorable to John Crawford.  You can’t show different pieces, show it all, don’t trickle pieces to gain favor of the public, “said Michael Wright, Crawford family attorney.  Wright wants to see the release of events in chronological order.

Wright says the video shows Crawford standing in the direction of some shelves.  He say Crawford was talking on his cell phone and probably did not see or hear the police officer sent to the store to investigate.  He said in one frame you see Crawford on the phone, the next you see him on the floor.

Crawford’s father questions the timing of the state’s investigation.

“My main concern is the delay.  What’s taking so long?  I understand it’s a process, but frankly, I see stall tactics,” said John Crawford II [the decedent’s father].

Crawford was speaking by cell phone to his girlfriend, who was with his parents, when he was shot.

“He said he was at the video games playing videos, and he went over there by the toy section where the toy guns were,” said LeeCee Johnson, the mother of his two children. “The next thing I know, he said, ‘It’s not real,’ and the police start shooting, and they said ‘Get on the ground,’ but he was already on the ground because they had shot him.”

Johnson put the phone on speaker mode, and she and Crawford’s parents heard him die.

“I could hear him just crying and screaming,” Johnson said. “I feel like they shot him down like he was not even human.”
