The Civilian Office of Police Accountability released video Wednesday of the fatal shooting of 24-year-old Maurice Granton by a Chicago police officer. Granton, who police said was armed, was shot around 8:15 p.m. on June 6 in the 300-block of East 47th Street in the city’s Bronzeville neighborhood. Tactical officers from the 2nd District were conducting a narcotics investigation in the area when police said Granton ran from them. Officers chased him and told him to stop. Police said that’s when he pulled out a weapon and “an armed encounter between the offender and police ensued.” Granton was shot in the back, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office. He was transported to University of Chicago Medical Center, where he died. The medical examiner ruled his death a homicide. The medical examiner ruled his death a homicide. His sister, Joanna Varnado, identified her brother’s body after he was pronounced dead. She also said he was shot in the back. “I didn’t see any blood or anything on the front of him. I wasn’t able to see the back because he was laying, of course, on his back. There was no blood stains, anything, on the front,” Varnado said. Witnesses at the scene Wednesday night gave differing accounts of what happened. “I saw it! I was right there! I saw everything. He was laying over – I guess he ran through (there) trying to make it.

I guess they thought he had whatever he had, but he didn’t have no gun! That’s my cousin!” said Princess Evans, an eyewitness and Granton’s relative. A sergeant who was injured in the incident was transported to a hospital for treatment. A weapon was recovered at the scene. Police later tweeted a photo of the gun. Granton’s family said the weapon in the photo was not his gun. “No, that’s not his, he doesn’t have a gun,” said Kaeinji Jackson, sister. “There are eyewitnesses to say Maurice never pointed a gun,” said Eric Russell, Tree of Life Justice League of Illinois. “They planted that gun. There’s a coverup!” “He wouldn’t even chance his life doing that, knowing he had two very young kids to come home to,” said Tayshia Shaw, the mother of Granton’s children. His relatives said the young father turned his life around after the birth of his two daughters. Granton has a criminal record that includes convictions for robbery and theft. But his relatives said, regardless of his past, he was running away from officers and was not a threat. The officer involved in the shooting was assigned to administrative duty for 30 days, per Chicago Police Department policy. The shooting remains under investigation.

  1. So the suspect is on one side of the fence, the officer on the other. The suspect wasn’t going anywhere, nor was the officer. Surly this could of been handled differently?

  2. This is the funniest shit ive seen all day! 😂 The sound he made when he jumped straight into the metal fence was priceless

  3. 1:33 " Hey Maurice…wassup my man ? ' " Hey Maurice, you wanna' buy some crack man ? " " Hey Maurice. Speak up homey. WTF man. " " Hey Maurice. Iz dat' a bullet in yo' hed Maurice ? " Shiiit. Jus' another day LOL

  4. It’s funny how they act tuff in a crowd but if it was just a single person they walk away like they don’t care

  5. Yo fuck 12 if that happen in front of me I would’ve went upstairs and got the Ak and got all of them niggas we are supposed to be equal how come cops have the decision to take a life nobody should have more power than anybody in this world 🌎 16yro speaking

  6. Its takes two plus years of specialized training to be a licensed hairdresser or tattoo artist and only 6 months in the police academy to become a ƲS∆ law enforcement ∆gent of the St∆te. YES, our republic is still overthrown by the judiciary communists and their unaccountable, unconstitutional, corporate government mercenaries.


    Meanwhile . . .

    In 2019 ƲS∆ Police killed and or murdered 1004 American citizens

    In 2018 ƲS∆ Police killed and or murdered 1166 ∆MEЯᏐK∆ИS-18K+ dead since 9/11

    Each year police injure or hospitalize beyond 54,000 American citizens.

    Blue ISIS killed 10,000 pet dogs in 2012. Its now being called an epidemic.

    Annually, SWAT does 100,000 operations many of which are botched no-knock raids.

    From year 2000 to 2018 over 18,000 jail/prison inmates have suspiciously died.

    Sources: The Free Thought Project website.

    CATO [botched raid map] Institute website.

    Killed by police .net website.

    One of the most popular police trainers in the ƲS∆ (over 200 annual seminars) is Retired Lieutenant Colonel Dave Grossman. His seminar is called, "Killology." He teaches cops and their trainers there are only two kinds of citizens: Sheep or Wolves. Besides teaching cops to see people as animals, he also teaches them if a person does not act like a sheep then they must be a wolf, and according to Grossman wolves must die. Even if a black American falls into the "sheep" category, they are seen as "black sheep." This then causes a double bind for black Americans when dealing with law enforcement.

    Lt. Col. Dave Grossman's Killology police training excerpt:

    In a class recorded for “Do Not Resist,” Grossman at one point tells his students that the sex they have after they kill another human being will be the best sex of their lives. The room chuckles. But he’s clearly serious. “Both partners are very invested in some very intense sex,” he says. “There's not a whole lot of perks that come with this job. You find one, relax and enjoy it.”

    The Israeli Defense Force [IDF] also trains ƲS∆ militarized police. This includes a technique called "Kill them, kill them all". The IDF routinely shoots to maim or murder reporters and protesting unarmed men, women and children.
