Chicago Police Kill Middle-Aged Woman While Responding to Call About Teenage Man, Whom They Also Killed

Responding to a domestic violence call about about a teenage man threatening to hurt his father with a baseball bat, Chicago police arrived and shot a middle-aged woman dead after she opened the door to let them inside.

Then they shot the teenager dead.

Neither one of them was armed with a gun.

Chicago police offered scarce details other than telling the media they arrived at the building and “were confronted by a combative individual, resulting in an officer firing shots, fatally wounding two individuals.”

But dispatchers clearly told officers the situation involved a 19-year-old male with a bat, not a middle-aged woman who apparently was only trying to let them inside the building.

The woman’s name was Bettie Jones, a mother of five, who was either 55 or 57. She lived in the downstairs flat of the two-story building owned by the teen’s father, who lived in the upstairs flat with his wife and son.

Her daughter, Latesha Jones said  police shot her from outside the door while her mother remained inside the door.

The teen’s father had told her to be on the lookout for police and to stay away from his son, who was having a mental episode.

The teen’s name was Quintonio Legrier, 19, a Northern Illinois University student studying engineering, who also suffered from mental illness and was prone to outbursts, but was not known to be violent.

“He was having a mental situation. Sometimes he will get loud, but not violent,” the teen’s mother, Janet Cookery, told ABC 7.

Early this morning, the teen began banging on their bedroom door with a bat, which is when the father called police.

Despite his mental illness, Legrier appeared to be studious and benevolent, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Legrier was admitted in 2014 to Northern Illinois University, where he majored in electrical engineering technology, according to the university’s website.

He had graduated last year from Gwendolyn Brooks College Preparatory Academy with honors, for having a grade-point average of 3.0 or higher, according to the school’s website.

Legrier, who weighed 150 pounds, was shot seven times. The name of the officer has not been released.

“You call the police, you try to get help and you lose a loved one,” she told the Chicago Tribune. “What are they trained for? Just to kill? I thought that we were supposed to get service and protection. I mean, my son was an honors student. He’s here for Christmas break, and now I’ve lost him.”

  2. as they say, if the problem looks like a nail, then the solution looks like a hammer. so, you call the fire department when you need courageous sophistication to save life and property and you call the police department when you want decrepit cowardly war vets to come in with Glock 40’s blazing away. Don’t call the police unless you are very sure someone, anyone, should be shot. Best is to call the mob, they at least have a sliding scale and avoid violence ’cause it’s bad for business. If you do call the police for a “domestic dispute” involving a male, you should realize that having identified a scary perp, you have provided them with the necessary excuse to come-in shooting. 99 times out of 100 the involved officers will be able to improve their pay grade, pension, vacation time, paid stress leave and PTSD claim for any righteous killing of a person guilty, innocent or otherwise. Using Israeli occupation rules, they will kill as many targets as can be justified by the apparent evidence and con-fabricated circumstances. Despite the occasional good apple, the business of law enforcement is the business of rationalizing incremental levels of fear and enforcement. The business is very profitable because nice people call the police to kill people rather than to help them. Don’t be an accomplice to justifiable cop homicide, don’t call the police first, call your church, the mob, the fire department or the ambulance when you have a domestic emergency. The police don’t kill as much or as often when they see professional or uninvolved witnesses at the scene especially those with cameras or cellphones. Stay safe, the police are making it very dangerous out there.

    • Good comment. Chicago (mayor: uber Zionist Rahm Emanuel) and many other police departments are flocking to ZioIsrael for training in urban warfare and crowd control. The US military is giving away combat vehicles and equipment to police departments to assist in the Zionization of American law, order and justice (sic). Now Trump or another of his ilk is calling for raiding of homes of “terrorists,” probably seizing (or demolishing?) the property, and sending family members packing such as deportation to their former nation if they are immigrants. Shades upon shades of collective-punishment law enforcement, Ziostyle.

  3. I can’t believe anyone would call the cops, in this day and age.
