Remembering John Crawford III: 1 Year Later


It’s hard to believe it has been one year since John Crawford was murdered by Beaver Creek, Ohio police officer Sean Williams. A lot has happened since, and a lot more innocent people have been killed at the hands of the police in Ohio. For those of you not familiar, John Crawford was killed by Beaver Creek police inside a Walmart while shopping with his girlfriend.

Many strange things have come to light surrounding this case in the time since he was gunned down. Walmart withheld the surveillance video at the request of the police department, which then covered up what happened and found Sean Williams justified in shooting Crawford. That makes Walmart complicit in the cover-up.

A few weeks into the investigation, protesters camped out in the Beaver Creek police station to demand answers from the chief of police. The chief resigned and then, a few weeks later, rescinded his resignation in a huge PR stunt for the mainstream media.

Walmart furthered its involvement by issuing trespass orders that were vehemently enforced by Beaver Creek police during the protests that followed. In the past year there has been a protest at the Beaver Creek Walmart every month to honor the innocent man who died at the hands of an out-of-control police state.


Every month, over the past year, we have met on the sidewalk by the street in front of the Beaver Creek Walmart where John Crawford was MURDERED by Officer Sean Williams. 11692533_10153357262686628_7219336109383236682_n
