Photos of the teenager shot dead by police in St. Louis yesterday

This is the 18 year old young man who was shot dead yesterday Dec. 23rd by a police officer at a gas station not far from where Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson, Missouri. But the police say this is a totally different case because Antonio Martin had a gun and pointed it at 34yr old unnamed officer, who pulled out his own gun and shot three times, killing Antonio.
 
Antonio pictured above pointing a gun at the police officer as the officer responded to a call of a theft in the area. The police officer fired three shots, one hitting the teen. Antonio, who didn't fire his weapon, was pronounced dead at the scene by responding EMS officers. 

During a press conference later, the police said Antonio was known to them and had previous charges including three assaults, armed robbery, armed criminal action and multiple uses of weapons since he was 17.

 His mother wails at the scene of the incident
His body being taken away
Protests quickly erupted at the scene of Antonio's shooting...

Ok. Fine. He pulled a gun. The problem here is America has become a military state. Cops need to find better ways of de-escalating situations rather than the first instinct being to kill first. I don't think criminals are any different in European countries but law enforcement there are not as trigger happy. Perhaps the gun culture of America is a contributing factor on both ends...the perps and law. They need to figure this ish out!

Let us be very honest in all things, why can't black people train their kids better. This guy looks the gangster part and hour has police records since when he was 17. Yes I know racism is still very much around but let us think we'll before we pull out the racism card.

Fuck the police. They keep killing teens. Wonder if they don't undergo training before being badged. So no other way to disarm him than to shoot him to death? So funny the boy didn't even fire a shot and a badged fucking police fired a whole 3shots on a teenager just because he pointed a gun at him. #fuckThePolice again. They killing teens, they killing dreams.

Thank youuuuuuuuuuu!!! Pple are just commenting anyhow. I have been askin, why is it that every time a black person gets killed like this, it's always while criming??? I was on social media getting blasted by oyinbo bicos of my stand. But now I ask, why are they always committing crimes? You will hardly find that they were killed while doing good.
African Americans need to go back to their homes and raise there kids right. The moral decay amongst them is terrifying

This nightmare will not end any moment soon. Police should learn how to shoot to wound not to kill.

My sis thank you o! A 13yr old girl was killed n her body burnt to cover the crime here in Indianapolis. The guy who killed her is a 42yr old man. The would often be out till early hours.of the morning at say 3am wen d family noticed she was missing. And her dressing alone at 13 was disgusting . My questions are: way the hell is a 13yr old doing outside at 10pm much less till 3am? Why the hell was she allowed to dress the way she was dressed before she was killed? What the HELLL was she doing with a 42yr old man?

At 13 my mother would kill me if I was still outside at 6pm I was a dead meat. If she went looking for me and couldn't find in two or three usual friend's house, I was a dead meat. If I made a new friend and went visiting without her knowledge I was a gonner.

So, those black fools always pulling the racist card wen their kids are so horrible, should go home and train their kids in the way they should go.

Newton's third law of motion: action and reaction are equal and opposite. Twas just a reflex from the cop upon sensing that he myt get shot. Blacks should desist from possessing fire arms; most of which are illegal. 18years old boy!? Bobby schmurda could get 25yrs, n if he does...he's done for.

Let blacks stay away from crime and not blame our misfortune on slavery or others.
If you live in America you will understand what I mean. Its guys like these who bring shame,stigmatization and makes life difficult for decent blacks in America.

Anonymous said...

A threat is not enough for officers to kill. They are expected to incur the greater risk because of their training. If soldiers can disarm without using lethal force, local police can do the same in their dealings with dangerous suspects given all the non lethal tools at their disposal.

The advice some are dishing to African-Americans to stay away from crime is the same African Americans would give to Nigerians to steer clear of fraud and ill begotten gains. Y'all flip out when Ann Coulter uses stereotypes to say credit card fraud is a UNILAG major but are quick to toss out your own to justify the killing of blacks by police in the US.
