Family Of Man Killed In Walmart Files Suit

“They want to make sure that this tragic event doesn’t happen to any other family,” one of the attorneys said.
Family Of Man Killed In Walmart Files Suit

The family of John Crawford, the man killed in an Ohio Walmart for carrying a BB gun he was going to purchase, held a press conference today announcing a lawsuit. I actually thought this shooting was the most egregious of all (at least, until cops gunned down 12-year-old Tamir Rice). I hope the Crawford family gets a healthy settlement. They deserve it:

Attorney Michael Brown opened the press conference by acknowledging the the families of other victims who were gunned down by police across the country.

He then announced that he and the Crawford family are filing a civil lawsuit against Beavercreek Police Officers Sean Williams — who fatally shot Crawford — and his partner Sgt. David Darkow, Beavercreek Police Chief Dennis Evers and the Wal-Mart Corp.

“All we want is justice for John Crawford,” he said.

By filing this civil lawsuit, the family and their attorneys want to bring change to the Beavercreek Police Department and the Walmart Corp., they announce. “They want to make sure that this tragic event doesn’t happen to any other family,” one of the attorneys said.

They are asking for a minimum of $75,000, although that amount will increase as the lawsuit progresses, the attorneys said.
