St. Louis police officer shot Vonderrit Myers 6 times in the back of his legs as Myers ran up a hill

Saturday, October 25, 2014

Good afternoon:

A St. Louis police officer shot Vonderrit Myers 6 times in the back of his legs as he ran up a hill away from the officer. One shot broke the femur, disabling him. The fatal shot was a shot to the right side of the face between the eyebrow and top of the ear.

St.Louis Today reports,

Dr. Cyril H. Wecht, consulting for Myers’ family, said he examined the body, visited the scene in the Shaw neighborhood and was aware of witness statements provided by family lawyers before concluding that Myers was shot while fleeing up a steep hill.

In all, Myers, 18, had seven leg wounds, several with upward trajectories. Wecht said he was unable to determine the order of the shots, but that at least one of the leg wounds would have felled Myers immediately and the head wound would have rendered him unconscious.

It’s going to take a lot of spinning to turn that evidence into a justifiable shooting by the officer.

    Not surprised.
    Police will get off.
    Will also get their “kill a negro” bounty that their fellow KKK/LE raise for them.

    Evil in America is winning because it was created for evil from the beginning.

    Lately the livestreamers have been observing protests for Vonderrit Myers in the location he was killed at the last few nights rather than near the MB shooting area. I’ve watched for the past two nights. – small crowd, but lively. There were officers present not wearing nametags last night. There are several livestreamers but one I can recall off the top of my head is Rebelutionary_Z. You can link through on Twitter or by googling him.
