Black Man Killed By Illinois Cops Covered With Blanket Alive!

Tafara Williams survived the police shooting that left her significant other Marcellis Stinnette dead last week in Waukegan, Illinois. In a tearful plea she spoke out from her hospital bed to shed light on the tragedy. Ms. Williams stated that the police had “harassed” the couple and once she drove off the officer “fired” into her vehicle “without warning.” She also said the cops “threw” a blanket over Stinnette while he was still breathing. The family is being legally represented by attorney Benjamin Crump who spoke out concerning the killing.

“Ms. Williams legal team will begin our own investigation into what happened during that incident, because we do not trust the police narrative in this case. We have seen over and over that the official report when police kill Black people is far too often missing or misrepresenting details.” We will share our findings with the public when we have uncovered the truth.”
