Part 3) Unarmed Victim Archive of Law Enforcement Murders 501-750

Police Terrorists

Currently, there is no national database documenting the murders of un-armed people by police, security guards or self-appointed vigilantes. Although not all victims found here were weaponless, the fatal murdering of the unarmed: whether they are of ethnic origin, disabled, mentally ill, homeless or their sexual orientation, by Police Departments across the country is unjustified, and the vast majority of officers involved are not being held accountable.

I believe ALL those listed below regardless of whether they were in the process of perpetrating a crime, in a gang, drug possession, incarceration, resisting arrest, alluding, a weapon thrown aside, mentally ill or just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time, they are all victims. Victims who loved and were loved. This memorial is dedicated to all the Mothers and Fathers, Sons and Daughters, Husbands and Wife’s, Grandparents, Sisters and Brothers, Nieces and Nephews, Girlfriends, Boyfriends, Lovers, Friends and Neighbors who have lost someone at the hands of law enforcement. For all the heartbreak, shed tears, unanswered questions, lies and grief for a life unfulfilled, to you I give honor, for “there but for the grace of God go I”. May you find peace in knowing their bloodshed will not go unnoticed nor will their life be forgotten.

As we remember victims of violence let us remember the sadness of loss. May that sadness be transformed into compassion for the victim and their loved ones. May the fear struck in us by the power of tragedy give way to reverence at the unending power of unconditional love. May we uncover the energy of our anger and use it to right what is wrong in our own behavior toward one another and to challenge the mindsets and systems which enable and promote violence. May love gently wipe the tears from our eyes and remove the fear from our hearts. Look with favor upon the families and friends who mourn the victims and comfort those who are in grief and despair, that peace, the fruit of justice and charity may reign for each of us gathered here today. For all victims of crime, abuse, harassment and all who commit acts of violence; from those who speak harsh words in anger, to those who hate others who are different from themselves, to those who take the life of another, may we learn to act justly, love tenderly and walk humbly.

My definition of Unarmed
Please keep in mind I am only able to research and write bio’s on 5-7 victims per day. Each bio is verified through multiple sources, photos are retrieved, copied, cropped. Each bio is written and condensed close as possible to a single paragraph, many have links to READ MORE. Each name, age, state and ethnicity are entered into 3 data bases and then, after all pertinent information has been gathered I individually post to the website. Therefore each bio takes anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes to complete.

It is at my discretion as to what I consider as being unarmed. If the person has a weapon but is unable to use it because it’s under a seat, knocked to the side, fallen to the ground, in someone else’s possession etc. I consider that person unarmed. If someone is shot in the back, I consider that person unarmed. If there appears to be questionable circumstances surrounding the death, I consider that person unarmed. If the person is mentally ill and can be contained without using deadly force, I consider that person unarmed. Even if the person is a felon and has a violent criminal history, yet fits into any of the above categories, that person is still considered unarmed. If someone is in the commission of a crime, yet fits into any of the above categories, that person is still considered unarmed. If ANYONE can be contained without using deadly force, I consider that person unarmed.

There is no reason, in my opinion to shoot someone when police manage to apprehend and incarcerate extraordinarily dangerous serial killers/ mass murderers/spree killers and vigilantes yet cannot manage the capture of citizens of ethnic lineage without executing them.

However, if someone is shooting, holding a weapon or hurting someone (including an officer) and there is absolutely no other way to control them, I consider that person armed. Mind you, I credit witness statements far above police reports.

I DO NOT believe Law Enforcement reports. Lies the police tell that are so familiar anyone can recite them: “Reached for waist band”; “Pointed hand at police in a threatening manner.” “Backed the car toward officers” “Lunged at me” “Had a black object in hand” “Tried to grab gun” “Officers of the Un-Peace” or “Un-Peace Officers” Campaigns were formed against the “Blue Code” supposedly making it more visible to the public eye have taken place but all they seem to be doing is allowing the police to police the police and the police. Police are liars, period. So please don’t think I would even consider relying on their statements. The code of Blue Silence is too real to be ignored, and has been proven over and over again to be the real badge of the law.

As for Grand Juries they’ve been bought and paid for in more cases than can be counted. There is something fundamentally unfair about a grand jury system which doesn’t reflect the racial, political and ethnic diversity of the community it serves and the people it indicts.

Visual map displaying accounts of extrajudicial killings of people of colour beginning in 2012

Unfortunately due to the ongoing killings by Police and vigilantes claiming Stand Your Ground (Castle Doctrine) this list will continue to grow. Please keep in mind each victim is double and triple checked for accuracy, therefore it takes approximately 40-60 minutes to complete each bio, including editing, separating into 4 data bases and posting online to the appropriate page(s). This website is an extremely time consuming endeavor, yet a true labor of love, but often mentally overwhelming and occasionally must be set aside as I regroup. If you have a family member, friend or know of someone killed at the hands of Law Enforcement or Vigilante(s) please leave their name, age, state, date of death etc. by replying in the comment box; they will be given top priority on the next post and you will receive links to their location(s). Completed bio’s on this page have ** # and 1, 2, 3 or 4 behind the entry denoting the part/page where the bio can be found. Due to lack of space ((#)) signifies mental disorders, including but not limited to Suicide.

This Is What It’s Like To Be An Unarmed Black Man In America

John WinklerJohn Winkler 30, April 11, 2014 West Hollywood CA – Deputies responded to a call of a man with a knife. Two men burst out of an apartment building and ran towards the deputies. The first man who exited was bleeding profusely from the neck. Winkler followed close behind. The deputies on scene apparently were confused when they saw Winkler “lunging at the back of the fleeing victim so they shot Winkler four times and the other man once. Winkler died from his injuries at a hospital. The other man survived. Winkler and the man who was bleeding were actually victims of a third man, Alexander McDonald, who lived inside the apartment building. Winkler, who lived in the apartment above McDonald, unwittingly got involved in the violence when he came down to visit two friends at McDonald’s apartment. The suspect crawled onto his own balcony from outside and held the three men hostage with a butcher knife. Witnesses reportedly told police McDonald was acting delusional and crazed. Winkler and the victim who had been stabbed managed to escape, only to be shot when they exited the building. Murdered by LAPD

Eric ScottErik Scott 38, July 10, 2010 Las Vegas NV – Scott, a West Point graduate, Army veteran, MBA graduate of Duke University, and a medical sales rep for Boston Scientific was shopping with his girlfriend in the camping section of the store taking bottles out of their packaging, attempting to determine how many of the bottles would fit in a cooler he was thinking of purchasing. At some point he bent over and his shirt rode up, exposing the pistol he had concealed at the small of his back. A Costco employee saw the holstered sidearm and told Scott he was not allowed to have the weapon in the store. Scott replied he had a permit and the right to carry his weapon. He then went back to shopping. The employee called over a manager, who informed a 20-something security guard, who made a 911 call to police. The manager claimed Scott was armed with a gun, acting aggressively and erratically, and that he may have been under the influence of drugs. Over a dozen police officers responded, along with a helicopter, ambulance, and competing incident command teams. As the police began to form a massive perimeter outside, Costco managers began evacuating the entire store apparently without explaining why to anyone. As Scott and his girlfriend exited the store he was identified to police officers, who were waiting with guns drawn outside the front door. Erik turned to find three officers facing him, guns drawn, and all three shouting different commands: “Get on the ground!” “Drop your weapon!” “Keep your hands up!” Erik held his hands up, spoke calmly, told them he DID have a concealed firearm and a legal CCW and was an ex-Army officer. His girlfriend was screaming about Erik being a West Point grad, former Army officer, etc. Erik leaned to his left, hands still up, to expose the pistol, and repeated, “I am disarming; I am disarming.” Witnesses say he started to lower his right hand, palm OUT, perhaps intending to remove holster and gun together — but never got the hand below his shoulder, when one of the cops (believed to be William Mosher, who had committed a fatal shooting in 2006) shot Erik in the chest with a .45-caliber semi-automatic weapon. Erik dropped to his knees. The three officers unloaded again, firing a total of seven hollow-point rounds. At least four, possibly five, hit Erik in the back, after he was on the ground and dying. Two experts hired by Scott’s family examined his body. They claim of the seven .45 ACP hollow-point bullets fired into Scott’s body, one was fired through his armpit, suggesting his arm was raised at the time. Four remaining shots were fired into his back. There were no exit wounds, making it all but impossible for police to claim that investigators misread through-and-through wounds. Murdered by Las Vegas PD

Christopher RoupeChristopher Roupe 17, Feb. 14, 2014 Euharlee GA – Roupe, an ROTC student at Woodland High School in Cartersville had planned to join the Marines. Euharlee officers showed up at the door of his mobile home to serve a probation violation warrant for the boy’s father. A female officer reportedly told the Georgia Bureau of Investigation that Roupe pointed a gun at her after he opened the door, however Christopher was holding a Nintendo Wii video game controller, and about to watch a movie. “The eyewitnesses on the scene clearly state Christopher had a Wii controller in his hand. He heard a knock at the door. He asked who it was, there was no response so he opened the door and upon opening the door he was immediately shot in the chest.” Murdered by Euharlee PD

James WhiteheadJames Whitehead 28, July 26, 2012 Orange TX – Whitehead, a former Marine, allegedly got into a verbal dispute with a storeowner. Whitehead wanted to return a part to an auto store because the part did not work. He got upset because he was told he could not return the part. He started cursing wanting a refund. The store manager called the police stating he didn’t want to press charges he just wanted Whitehead to leave. Customer Officer Robert Arnold, in plain clothes along with his 14 year old daughter, never showed a police ID or a badge attempted to arrest White by going outside to get handcuffs. Meanwhile Whitehead decided to just leave without any further arguing. According to witnesses Officer Arnold approached Whitehead’s truck, placed his hands on Whitehead, pulling him, then picking Whitehead up by the shoulders and standing him up outside the vehicle. Whitehead cursed and yelled racial slurs at Arnold accusing him of not being cop and attempting to return to his truck and leave. According to witnesses Officer Arnold jerked the door open, stuck the gun in the truck and said, “I’m gonna kill you.” Arnold fired once, hitting Whitehead in the chest. Whitehead said “You just shot me.” Arnold replied, “I sure did.” Police Chief Sam Kittrell was surprised Texas Ranger Ken Parks, who did the investigation, said, “this was a good shooting and it won’t take but a couple days to get it taken care of.” However former Orange, TX Police Officer Harold Hass, who worked with Officer Arnold sent a letter to a New Grand Jury requesting charges against Arnold. Additionally Hass is not the only police officer who says Arnold unjustly shot Whitehead. Murdered by Officer Robert Arnold Orange PD… READ MORE:

Brandon EllingsonVrandon Ellingson 20, May 31, 2014 Columbia MO – Ellingson, a college student was partying and arrested by police patrolling on boat for public intoxication. Officer Anthony Piercy claims he slowed his boat for two big waves from another vessel and within seconds, Ellingson went over the edge. He claims he reached for Ellingson as he went overboard and was able to grab hold of one of his feet until it was pulled from his hands. “Well, I don’t know if it was the wake and his intoxication or if he (expletive) did it on purpose, Police claim Ellingson jumped off the boat, but witness’ Larry Moreau saw Piercy and Ellingson standing on the patrol boat when it whizzed past their boat. It was just moments later when they caught up to patrol boat stopped and a person was floating near it and he could not figure out what was going on. The trooper did not have his lights on and was not calling for help.” Ellingson was in the water “It was complete horror.” “Ellingson with his life vest floating next to him were about 200 feet away from our boat, Trooper Anthony Piercy’s boat was even closer. He did not think Ellingson was drowning because if that was the case he’d have reached for the life vest near him. Since trooper Piercy was not calling for help, the Moreau family left the area. However, hours later when the Moreau’s learned Ellingson was handcuffed. “We were relieved the world was going to get to see what we saw from the cameras. It turned into an absolute nightmare because now we are the only ones that saw it.” In Officer Piercy’s statements he seemed more concerned about himself than Ellingson. No charges were filed against the officer. Allowed to drown by Trooper Anthony Piercy Columbia PD

Brenda WilliamsBrenda Williams 52, (paranoid schizophrenic) May 28, 2009 Scranton PA – Air Force Veteran suffering from schizophrenia. The call came from Ms. Williams’ mother’s home, just down the street from where Ms. Williams lived, and police obtained information from people before going to check on Ms. Williams. According to Chief Elliott “the officers were told Ms. Williams was ‘acting disorderly in her own home’ before they went to her apartment.” The police were going to cite her for disorderly conduct and were in the process of citing the naked, mentally ill woman who did not invite the police to her home and whose paranoia was probably off the charts as she stood naked surrounded by police. Ms. Williams was allowed to go into the kitchen and when she emerged from her kitchen holding a knife with a wooden handle. Within seconds, as the 52-year-old woman ignored commands to drop the weapon as she moved toward one of the officers, three of them fired, fatally wounding Williams who had been shot five times, including two lethal wounds to her abdomen and another potentially fatal wound that severed the femoral artery in her right leg.

No Photo Available-001Robert Anthony Russ 22, June 7, 1999 Chicago IL – Russ, a Northwestern University honor student and star football player, was shot inside of his car following a high-speed chase after what the police claim was a struggle with the officer who shot him. After claiming to have seen Russ drive erratically the officers engaged in driving pursuit. The pursuit labeled “high-speed” never rose above seventy miles per hour, yet even at this speed, Fyfe contends the adrenaline rush of the chase coupled with the officers reliance in their numbers led to their ignoring any impulses to maintain rational thinking in a potentially non-deadly situation and to speed up a process that both allowed and required taking things more slowly and methodically. Russ’s car spun out on the Dan Ryan Expressway at which point several officers quickly approached his vehicle. The false safety of numbers gave the three officers “the bravado to rush the car.” “The lawyers for the police claim this was a fast-breaking situation. But it was only fast-breaking because the cops let it become one. He was stopped. He wasn’t going anywhere but the Officer claimed Russ went for his gun. The Officers have changed their story claiming it was “accidental.” First the bullet went in through Russ’ shoulder before piercing his heart, now they say he was shot and in the chest. No weapons, drugs, or alcohol were found in Russ’ car or on him. Russ’ family was awarded $9.6 million dollars. Murdered by Chicago PD!topic/

He has his gun in his hands and the gun’s pointing at me.” Of the more than three dozen witnesses to the fatal shooting of Officer Ridley, only four suggested the armed off-duty cop had turned toward county police officers in his final moment. Detective Oliveri hid Ridley’s badge in Ridley’s car so it couldn’t be “discovered” until later, then claimed Ridley failed to “identify himself as a policeman. Detective Oliveri committed a brutal execution in front of three other police officers and dozens of civilian witnesses. All four Westchester County police officers were cleared of any wrong doing. Murdered by Westchester County PD

Eric HernandezNYPD Officer Eric Hernandez 24, Feb, 6, 2006 Bronx NY – Officer Hernandez, fresh from his night shift in the Bronx and an off-duty swing through at least one local bar, was assaulted by a group of men inside a White Castle restaurant. At least one witness told the police the confrontation started when someone in the group ridiculed the officer, who was in street clothes, saying he should buy them sodas. Hernandez got into an argument with several young men, and apparently identified himself as an NYPD officer, and was jumped and beaten badly by the men. They left the store and left him lying on the floor. Hernandez took his gun out and ran after them. In the parking lot outside, he pulled his gun on a man he believed to be one of his attackers, and one of the officers responding to a 911 call, Officer Alfredo Toro, shot Hernandez three times after he supposedly failed to drop his weapon. A question raised by the videotape was how the blows and kicks he suffered may have damaged Officer Hernandez physically, but the fact that he had been drinking that night raised other questions. In the days that followed the shooting, the commissioner and other police officials went over a security videotape of the attack on Officer Hernandez in the moments before the shooting and said they had been revolted by the ferocity of the assault. Hernandez died on Jan. 28, 2007 after 11 days ICU. Killed by Officer Alfredo Toro NYPD

Davis, a longtime employee at Sawicki’s, a sandwich shop located in the more affluent downtown area of Decatur, where Edwards also worked. Davis was kind-hearted, generous, never late, and a visible contributor to his relatively small community of family, friends and colleagues. It was this very kindness which prompted him to invite Terrance Hilyard, 47, a co-worker in a rough spell, to stay with him and Edwards at their one-bedroom apartment. Hilyard and April Edwards got into an altercation, which quickly escalated. Hilyard stabbed Edwards with a kitchen knife and fled the scene. Davis promptly called 911 for help. DeKalb County Police were dispatched, and Officer Joseph Pitts was first to arrive on scene. Per three witness accounts, Officer Pitts did not announce his arrival or identify himself. He entered the home to find the couple’s dog, whom he shot and killed. Upon hearing shots, Davis became alarmed that his girlfriend’s assailant might have returned with a gun. He retrieved his own gun, proceeded to the front room of his home and was shot twice by Officer Pitts. Both Edwards and neighbors claim Officer Pitts did not order Davis to put down his weapon before hearing gunshots. Police claim Davis was told to drop his firearm, and refused to do so. After the shooting, Edwards came out, saying, “What have you done? Why did you shoot him?” A second officer arrived on the scene. Davis, prone, said he was unable to feel his legs. He was arrested, charged with aggravated assault of a police officer, and transferred to Grady Hospital in downtown Atlanta in police custody. Hilyard was apprehended and arrested for the assault on Edwards. Edwards was transported to emergency care, her wounds having punctured an artery in her right arm. Over the next two days, during his stay at the hospital, Davis’s family made numerous attempts to speak with him, both in person and over the phone, but were denied by police, who said he was “in police custody.” Davis was not allowed to have outside contact, which reportedly evoked frustration on behalf of attending doctors. On December 31, Davis died from his injuries sustained at the hands of Officer Pitts. The family were repeatedly blocked from seeing Davis until they were notified, without condolences, that he had “expired.” A representative of DeKalb County Police allegedly said to them, “You can go see him now.”

They said they found Carrion inside the apartment with his wife, Rhode Carrion, and other family members. Carrion was allegedly detained and handcuffed “for his safety” while EMS personnel attempted to assess his condition. Carrion allegedly became violent after he was handcuffed and fought officers, refused orders and even choked a police dog to unconsciousness. His wife said after the incident that this was not the case, however. Rather, Carrion was trying to get away from the police who were shooting him with a Taser an estimated 35 times. Police claim Carrion was handcuffed for his own protection, attempted to escape and ran outside. According to Carrion’s wife, her husband crawled naked into a bramble thicket where he was repeatedly shocked. The medical examiner’s office listed the cause of death as “excited delirium.” Probate records show the lawsuit in the case was settled in October 2014 when Middletown officials agreed to pay $462,500 to Carrion’s wife and children.
