4 Years Later After the Botched Raid, Which Lead to Aiyana Stanley Jones’s Death

People who think this is not about race are really naive and possibly stupid. Especially if one knows the history of the police and the African American/Black community. This should never have happened and this officer’s case should not have been dropped. The prosecutors don’t give a damn about Black lives; be it Michael Brown, Eric Garner or a 7 year old little girl.

Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) has pledged to introduce legislation on police accountability following the dismissal of charges against a Detroit police officer who fatally shot a 7-year-old girl.

On Friday, the case was dropped against Officer Joseph Weekley in the 2010 death of Aiyana Stanley-Jones, who was killed during a botched police raid while she was sleeping in the couch. Conyers released a statement Saturday saying the decision was unlikely to end the controversy over the incident.

“However, our community must not lose sight of the greatest tragedy of all in this situation — the loss of a 7-year-old innocent child, Aiyana Stanley-Jones,” the congressman said. “I extend my deepest condolences to the family of Aiyana Stanley-Jones during this very difficult time.”
