What Happened to Kareem Jones?

Columbus man fleeing from the cops killed. The law claims he was reaching for his weapon and had a criminal history. He called the police to report kids throwing rocks at his girlfriend's car.

BE WARNED THE VIDEO SHOWN IS DISTURBING.



Two incidents in the central Ohio city of Columbus.

An incident that happened was a testament of the use of body cameras by the Columbus Police.

The department released the disturbing video of a fatal police shooting last Friday. The shooting of Kareem Jones got the nation talking. The death of the 30 year old man has brought once again attention to use of deadly force by the police.

A few things I want to get off my chest.

OHIO IS AN OPEN CARRY STATE. 

WHEN COPS SEE A BLACK MAN WITH A FIREARM REGARDLESS OF IT BEING LEGAL OR ILLEGAL, THEY AUTOMATICALLY SHOOT THE BLACK MAN. 

THE POLICE AND JUNK FOOD MEDIA TRY TO MAKE THE VICTIM, "THE BAD GUY" BY BRINGING UP HIS PAST HISTORY, HIS SOCIAL MEDIA OR HIS FAMILY LIFE. 

MANY WHITES (IN LARGE GROUPS) HAVE FIREARMS IN FRONT OF POLICE AND THEY NEVER GET SHOT OR KILLED. WHY AREN'T THEY AFRAID OF THEM?

WHENEVER SOMEONE COMPLAINS ABOUT LACK OF BLACK FATHERS, I CONTINUE TO DENOUNCE THIS BULLSHIT. I REMIND THEM THAT THE POLICE KILL BLACK FATHERS. THE POLICE LEAVE CHILDREN OF COLOR WITHOUT A BLACK FATHER.

FOR EVERY BAD COP, THERE WILL BE A DEAD COP!


I DON'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING ON THE INTERNET OR THE COP'S VERSION.


GUN VIOLENCE IS THE NUMBER ONE THREAT IN THE UNITED STATES.

DONALD J. TRUMP, REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS ARE INEPT. THEY ARE NUMB TO GUN VIOLENCE. THEY CONTINUE TO ALLOW FIREARMS IN THE HANDS OF TERRORISTS AND BAD COPS.

EXPECT MORE COPS SHOOTING UNARMED OR LEGALLY ARMED PEOPLE OF COLOR.

EXPECT COPS TO WALK WHEN THEY CLAIM THEY USED DEADLY FORCE BECAUSE THEY FEARED FOR THEIR LIVES.

EXPECT MORE MASS SHOOTINGS.

EXPECT GOOD COPS TO BE KILLED BY TERRORISTS. THEY CONTINUE TO ALLOW BAD COPS AND CORRUPT POLICE UNIONS TO REIGN STATE SPONSORED TERRORISM UPON PEOPLE OF COLOR.

POLICE KILLING PEOPLE OF COLOR IS STATE SPONSORED TERRORISM.

BEING A COP IS A THANKLESS JOB. THEY CONTINUE TO SERVE AND PROTECT IN AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS JOB.

THOSE CHARGED ARE INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY IN A COURT OF LAW.


WE DON'T CONDONE VIOLENCE AGAINST LAW ENFORCEMENT OR ANY HUMAN BEING. 

The claims by a woman living in the Franklinton neighbor got the attention of the police. She claimed that kids were throwing rocks at her car. The woman next door to sister's duplex and Jones were looking for the kids who threw the rocks.

Jones headed by the duplex when the officers came in contact with him in a backyard.

The cops, Samuel James and Marc Johnson were exiting their vehicle and confronted Jones with guns drawn. Jones hands were initially up in the air. He was backing up with his hands up.

Then as he run, the video the police released shows Jones reaching into his waistband. I don't really see it.

The cops open fire on him.
Was he reaching for his firearm or trying to pull up his pants?
He drops. Then that's when the cops turn on their microphones. They start cussing and then cuffed him. He was laying on the ground for ten minutes before a medic was called.

During the video, other cops ask what happened?

"We roll up, we're talking to him, and I see a bulge in his waistband under his shirt and I'm like, 'That has to be a phone.'"

The officer goes on to say, "He draws down on him, and he pulls his fucking gun on us."

Kareem Jones died of his injuries at the local hospital. Now four children lost their father and the family is demanding answers. Kareem called the police for a crime. He wasn't the criminal.
Cops were placed in the freezer after they shot a fleeing man who flashed a gun.
The cops are placed in the freezer pending an investigation if force was justified.

But of course, since he's a Black man with a gun, the police see a threat. The conservative trolls will use their "whataboutism," to defend the actions of the cops.

The shooting of a Black male has gotten the attention of the nation. Even in Ohio's largest city, the divide is wide and people aren't truly feeling the Cbus.

The city of Columbus, Ohio is the largest in the state. The current population is 910,000 residents and it's growing.

By the way, Columbus Police delivered a least some accountability for the actions of their division cops.

Remember the incident where a cop kicked a handcuffed individual, he was fired out the cannon.

The ex-cop, Zachary Rosen was seen on video serving a handcuffed man a side order of toe jam salad. He was placed in the freezer. He had a disciplinary problem throughout his years.
