Did You Know A Milwaukee Cop Got Away with Murder Recently??

We all were made aware of the Philando Castile murder out of Minnesota about two weeks ago but did you know that a Milwaukee cop also got away with murder recently. According to the Huffington Post:

Dominique Heaggan-Brown, the former Milwaukee police officer who shot and killed 23-year-old Sylville Smith last August during a foot chase, was found not guilty of first-degree reckless homicide on Wednesday.

Heaggan-Brown and his former partner, Ndiva Malafa, pulled Smith and another man over on Aug. 13 at approximately 3:30 p.m. The officers suspected Smith was involved in a drug deal.

Smith, who was armed, fled within seconds of the officers getting out of their squad car. He ran into a yard with a chain-link fence and threw his gun over it as Heaggan-Brown fired.

Heaggan-Brown’s first shot hit Smith in his arm. He then fired again into Smith’s chest, hitting his lung and heart.

In his initial statement last year, Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn said Smith pointed a gun at the officers.

A prosecutor argued during the trial that Heaggan-Brown shot Smith as he was attempting to surrender and that the second shot was unreasonable.

“Mr. Heaggan-Brown knew at the time he fired that second shot that Sylville Smith had already disarmed himself,” Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm told the jury. “He knew that Sylville Smith was attempting to surrender.”

Heaggan-Brown’s attorney, Jonathan Smith, countered that his client was simply protecting his life and the life of his fellow officer.

And there it is… the textbook line of, “I feared for my life.” The only line a cop must whisper to get out of wrongdoings. I’m surprised this even went as far as it did since the victim actually did have a gun and commited a crime of violence. Yet, that wasn’t the case for Castile or Dubose (who’s killed Ray Tensing was unable to be convicted at his trial this past week) but is still seems Smith was ready to face a courtroom and instead got bullets from Heaggan-Brown.
