Chicago Police Shooting Unarmed 13-Year-Old Who Had His Hands Up!
Video footage obtained by Daily Beast, shows the teen—known only by his initials A.G.—running into a gas station parking lot with his hands up before turning around to his right. He shot right after. In the video, the teen—known only by his initials A.G.—ran off the sidewalk and into the light of a gas station parking lot with his hands raised in the air before turning around to his right. It is then that the boy is shot by an officer and collapses to the cement in front of a gas pump. After he was shot, the new video shows, two officers carried the teen to a different location by only two legs and a piece of clothing as his arm briefly dragged on the pavement—something Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown had previously claimed was to avoid harm from an explosion at the gas pump following the shooting. But only moments after they had done so, a responding cop car careened into the gas station and crashed into the station’s sign, briefly drawing the attention of nearly all of the roughly 20 officers away from the teen. A.G.—who ran after police tried to stop a car in which he was a passenger—has not been charged with any crime. No officers were fired on, and no weapon was recovered at the scene.
