Grandson of U.S. House member fatally shot in Chicago home invasion

U.S. Rep. Danny Davis, D-Ill., said his 15-year-old grandson, Jovan Wilson, was shot in and killed in a home invasion, possibly over a pair of gym shoes. The teen was at home when two assailants broke into the home and shot him in the head

The 15-year-old grandson of U.S. Rep. Danny Davis was shot in the head and killed Friday, possibly in a dispute over gym shoes.

Chicago police said Jovan Wilson was in his home in Englewood when two armed assailants forced their way into the home about 6:45 p.m. The teen and the assailants argued, police said. The teen was shot in the head. Davis, a longtime House member who represents Illinois’ 7th Congressional District, was not at the home.

“That dispute escalated and turned physical and one of the offenders pulled out a gun and shot the victim in the head,” said Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi, adding the incident may have sparked in a dispute over sneakers.

Davis had just returned to the Chicago area from Washington, D.C., when he learned of the shooting. He said a 17-year-old girl and 15-year-old boy were behind the home invasion. No arrests have been made.

“Initially it was that he had been shot and then actually the police commander called me and indicated that, there during a home invasion, he had been shot and it didn’t look good,” Davis said.

“Immediately I simply left and came out to the area where it had taken place,” Davis said. “It’s totally disconcerting.”

Davis said his grandson was a typical teen who loved sports and music.

“He liked basketball. If you listened to him he was a basketball star, but he liked basketball and music. All those kinds of things. He was an avid sports fan, he knew all about, you know, the stats of different players,” he said.

Gun violence has increased in the Chicago area in 2016 to levels not seen since the 1990s. The city has had 643 murders through Nov. 6. That’s a 55 percent increase over the same period last year.

Cop Fired for Tasing Non-Resisting Citizen

Geez…Another bad cop. At least, unlike in some parts of the country the Police Force sin’t putting up with it – or trying to lie about it and cover it up…

Officer Fired After Tasing Suspect Who Wasn’t Resisting

A Tampa Bay area police officer has been fired following an internal investigation that revealed he used inappropriately used a stun gun on a suspect.

The Tampa Tribune (http://bit.ly/1O9eCqb ) reports Zephyrhills Officer Tim Claussen was fired Thursday. He had been on administrative leave since the Sept. 11, two days after he went to the suspect’s home to investigate a retail theft.

Police said a review of video from a camera on Claussen’s stun gun “clear shows the subject displaying no active physical resistance” toward the officer.

On Sept. 9, Lester Brown was tracked down by Claussen for allegedly shoplifting from a Bealls department store, a misdemeanor if Brown indeed committed the crime .  In his report, Claussen writes he deployed the taser because Brown wasn’t following instructions or showing both his hands.  The video shows Claussen lied. The police department said that Claussen had been investigated for excessive force in the past, but those claims were found to be unjustified.

Yeah…

And I Really Don’t Like the Curtains Either! Confederate Mania

Strange one. A Wisconsin man, enraged by the display of a Confederate Flag, barges into a woman’s home to remove it!

Wis. Man Arrested After ‘Shoving’ Woman to the Ground, Barging Into Her Home to Remove Confederate Flag: Report

This Wisconsin resident seems to really take issue with the Confederate flag.

Tajaun Boatner was arrested last week after he allegedly shoved past a woman, and barged into her home to remove the controversial flag that was hanging inside, the Daily Mail reports.

Boatner had reportedly spoken before to the woman, asking her to take down the flag, which she hung from her kitchen window. The woman moved the flag to the bathroom window, but Boatner was apparently not pleased at all.

The woman told police that she and Boatner got into a verbal argument before she ended up calling Boatner a racial slur, the Daily Mail reports. Boatner, at that point, had had enough and allegedly pushed past the woman and tore down the flag himself, according to the site.

The woman called police, who arrived at the scene and said that Boatner was combative. He allegedly struggled when they tried to handcuff him and refused to spread his legs so that they could pat him down for weapons. He allegedly continued to kick at officers as they put him in the police vehicle and attempted to close the door.

Boatner was charged with criminal trespassing, misdemeanor battery, disorderly conduct, misdemeanor theft and obstructing an officer.
