Did you watch the Akron, Ohio police release the body-cam footage of their officers killing 25-year-old Jayland

25-year-old Jayland Walker

Walker at a press conference? In that case, we understand your outrage, anger, and disbelief. However, this is what the police in America do.

Akron police said they attempted to pull over Walker on a traffic violation and were forced to chase him when he didn’t pull over, according to a statement from the department. 

The officer in the body-cam footage the world watched Sunday said Walker was shooting from his vehicle, but the video doesn’t show that. When Walker finally pulled over and got out of his car, officers briefly chased him and then released a hail of bullets at him. 

Despite the fact that Walker had no reason to be shot by police, the shooting was an overkill. When he exited the vehicle, he didn’t have a gun, and he didn’t have one when police started shooting at him.

During the press conference Sunday, police said “actions by the suspect caused the officers to perceive he posed a deadly threat to them.” The only thing that was threatening to the officers was that Walker was an unarmed BLACK man.

Police said during the Sunday press conference that officers pursued Walker’s car on the expressway for several minutes before exiting on a ramp.

After some chase on city streets, Walker’s car slowed, and he exited from the passenger side door as the car continued to roll forward, police said. Officers tried to stop Walker using stun guns and opened fire after the stun guns failed, according to the department’s retelling.

WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW:

The Ohio Attorney General’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation will lead the probe of police use of force.

Walker’s family has questioned the use of deadly force against the 25-year-old. An attorney for the family, Bobby DiCello, told the Akron Beacon Journal on Saturday that he reviewed the body camera footage with the family.

DiCello said he has not seen any evidence yet regarding allegations Walker shot at officers, and that Walker was fleeing from police when they shot at him.

He is just in a down sprint when he is dropped by I think the count is more than 90 shots,” DiCello said. Now how many of those land, according to our investigation right now, we’re getting details that suggest 60 to 80 wounds.

Protests are scheduled throughout Ohio tonight.
