…….. of my former city, Beavercreek, where I graduated high school and my kids are raising their families. We moved just four years ago. It is a very diverse place with great schools, college, Air Force, former rural area now with lots of technical and medical industry..…but on the fringes is the usual "redneck" sensibility. (Yes, I said that.)
Then THIS happened:
all because some wanna-be military type white guy Ron Ritchie, who LIED about his "service," got scared of a black guy with a gun and called 911...
"The attorney said as Crawford leaned on the pellet gun like a cane, he was “shot on sight” in a “militaristic” response by police.
“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 his girlfriend 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.”
She said she and his parents heard him die because she put the phone on speaker mode.
“I could hear him just crying and screaming,” Johnson said. “I feel like they shot him down like he was not even human.”
Yet a third witness stated that he had only been standing in the sporting goods section, holding the rifle and speaking on his cell phone.
The video below is a synchronization of both the 911 call and the Walmart video showing the time line. Disgusting. There is also a video of Ritchie talking to John Crawford's friend…he obviously had NO clue of her identity, didn't see her with him earlier, or what was really going on!

Sorry, I can't get the video to show, but it is here:
This is getting out of hand, don't you think? Take a look at this video from EZKOOL for another example of this "shoot first ask questions later' mentality."
