Grandmother Witnesses Cop Kill Sleeping Girl, 7

Officer testifies the grandmother may have bumped him or grabbed his gun

Aiyana Stanley-Jones

Tragic accident or willful negligence?

Mertilla Jones on Monday testified in a Detroit court that she watched a police officer shoot her sleeping 7-year-old granddaughter in the head, the Associated Press reports.

Aiyana Stanley-Jones (pictured) had just gone to sleep on the living room couch of her grandmother’s first floor apartment, when a group of armed, masked police officers swarmed in. Officer Joseph Weekley, on trial for involuntary manslaughter, has admitted mistakenly shooting the girl in 2010.

“I seen the light leave out of her eyes and the blood started gushing out her mouth and she was dead,” said the 50-year-old Jones, who sobbed through her testimony.

Weekley said his gun fired when Mertilla Jones bumped into him or grabbed it. But prosecutors are arguing that he was negligent and failed to control his weapon.

Police were looking for a murder suspect who lived on the second floor apartment of the duplex where Jones and her granddaughter were. Members of the tactical team said they were unaware there were children in Jones’ apartment.

    Every black male needs to exact retribution against these white mofos who think it ok for them to kill our beautiful black babies while they are sleeping. I’m sure the panty wearing cop will use that tired old excuse he was in fear of his life. Black males let’s give every cop in american a reason to be fear of his and his family lives.

        Another Van Jones Recruit? LIES < DECEPTION, AND NO RESPONSIBILITY, NO FORTITUDE, JUST PROPAGANDA?
        You are hating the wrong people. You should hate the Democraps, Obamao regime, and your own elected. They created slavery, and have kept the blacks enslaved for centuries.
        It was not white people who raided villages, stole men, women , children , placed them by the thousands on ships and hoped too make it to the indies , mexico, or America with at least half the cargo, It was Black people.
        And had better learn how too read, investigate, and find truth,
        Just a little tidbit, The KKK was created and paid for by the Democraps, To kill republicans , both black and white. They selected white costumes too implement fear and chaos in the black,The KKK was so successful in getting votes for the democraps , they upped the ante, Now just kill anyone who disagrees with any white for any reason, This will l get even more votes.
        Lincoln did not want the slaves freed, but democraps forced him too start a war with americans killing americans, All for greed of the economical success of the South,
        Lincoln was a coward and traitor,
        ONce they killed the South the Rich Democrats went in and bought land for 50 cents a acre or nothing. The Black slaves were freed? Only to become the pawns and the slaves of the Democraps.
        READ , READ, HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF, I read this and newspaper articles for decades, schools lie, churches lie, politicians lie, and what is really heinous, is the same ones you have made rich are keeping you stupid, and p oor, and beggars. the Democraps.
        And Obamao has used all the blacks like a fine tool, You eat rice , he eats lobster, You can barely get too a grocery store, They haul in groceries too the whitehouse in Semi trailers, The best wine, clothes, education travel.
        You are now marxist , slaves, traded one color for the color of death.
