The scene today where a woman was shot by police in Crooklyn.
Cops shot a woman dead after a dramatic car chase that ended in a crash on a busy Crooklyn intersection, witnesses and law enforcement source said.
The woman, identified only as in her 30s, was shot by narcotics cops once in the chest after her Toyota collided with a minivan on the corner of East 38th Street and Church Avenue in East Flatbush.
Sources said she ran several lights with police in hot pursuit before smashing into the other vehicle around 5:40 p.m. EST.
The officers chasing her ordered her out of the car, but she refused, sources.
She then put the car in reverse when at least one shot was fired, sources said.
“I saw two cops, gun drawn, getting out of one car,” said witness George Ricketts.
“They said, get out of the car then I heard ‘pop’ a gun shot,” he said.
“Then I saw them drag the person out of the car onto the street, blood was coming out her chest like a hose, real hard, blood was running like a river,” he recounted.
“She hollered, ‘Call the ambulance, please, please! Please don’t let me die.’ She shook and trembled and her fingers curled and she just died.”
The woman was taken to Kings County Hospital in cardiac arrest, sources said.
Fuck the pigs
Maybe this is me being insensitive, but if she didn’t wanna die, she could’ve just, I don’t know, not led the police on a high-speed chase. Or, like, when it ended, she could’ve put her hands out of the window and waited for the police to come not shoot her and handcuff her.
I’m saying, I’m not feeling sorry for every black person that got shot by the police just because they’re unarmed. Everybody knows the cops are dicks, so disobeying them so they get a chance to shoot you isn’t the wave.
I’m bothered by the fact that the person who wrote this article decided to say Crooklyn. Like, why?
Yeah, why the hell are they calling it Crooklyn, and as the person above me said, I can’t defend every Black person. Why in God’s name was she on a high-speed chase? She was in the wrong here. They shouldn’t have shot her in the CHEST, but umm, well… \( ‘_’)/
