These people are relatives, NOT Atatiana's "NEXT of KIN" which is her MOTHER & FATHER. NOT a Aunt or even siblings. Her "NEAREST/NEXT of KIN" are her Parents. The Aunt didn't Birth her that is not her place to be making JUDGEMENT CALLS nor the brother. If the FATHER wants to Pay for his daughter's funeral. That's honorable. The Greedy Aunt needs to FIND another "MEAL TICKET" and so does LEE "SMUTZ" MERRITT 😀
LOTS OF FAMILY INFIGHTING!!! THEY ALL WANT A PIECE OF THE POT!! THE FATHER IS BURYING THE DAUGHTER
Oh really? He has since bonded out after,4 hours. His union buddies helped him. SMH.
He shouldn't, got out. Not on a murder charge. And, regular citizen. Would not be able to get out. Talk, talk..... Foolish people. Am moving to Africa. Fudge this.
No forgiveness and LWOP -- life without parole at the bare minimum
It was not murder....
Fort Worth PD needs an overhaul in their selection process and their training of police officers.
Don’t worry, they will send in a “white men’s Negro” black Texas Ranger wearing a white hat to declare this a “good shooting.”
Can't rely on a justice system that was never designed to do anything but control and eliminate us as a people. Glad an arrest was made but it means nothing. Until he's sentenced for life or dealt with otherwise this isn't a victory. In fact a one rare time where justice is on our side isn't a victory. It's not a victory until the corrupted racist system changes.
Charge. For murder in the first. Degree.
Please don’t hug that motherfucker and forgive him.
Well a wrongful death suit against the police department should begin immediately
White people still wanna say " stop playing the race card" I've lived in all white countries all.my life and never see such evil from white cops towards coloured people.america really has a problem and they not willing to adress it. Why do they hate black people so much? What have black people ever done to whites?
And dont be forgiving either! Rip Atatiana
@al ntr They shouldn't do it at all
Forgiveness is premature. Don't do it until there is real and substantial change and a real and honest apology given by the US government for allowing this to go on for so long. C'mon people be strong and relentless.
LEE Merrit appears to be a predator of these events..... Similar to Benjamin Crump. Only in the scene for money!
My CONDOLENCES to Tatiana Jefferson & Joshua Brown Families. WHEN will the MADNESS from caucasians STOP!
Sadly, under the 5th Amendment, this now ex-officer Aaron Dean, has no obligation to explain his actions. So, Atatiana's family may never have full closure. Additionally, even though Aaron Dean was arrested, he is now "free on bond". An "ordinary citizen" would have most likely been "denied bail". The rest of the Fort Worth PD is trying to "distance themselves" from this ex-officer, but for some odd reason, the "other officer" who was at the scene who ALSO failed to identify himself to the occupants of the home, is not being held accountable for his actions.
Peace, apologies, marching... Not working. I have no more tears to shed. Scared officers tuck ur tail between ur legs
I feel for the family. This is tragic and justice seems to be on the way.As for Lee Merritt there is no way his slime would be anywhere nearmy family...
trained to be cowards at its best
He should get a death sentence
Whites should not be allowed to be police officers or owns Guns!!
With out that body cam this woulda never happened this is scary ! Imagine if he didn’t have his cam on they coulda said anything! Every time I see his face a get sooo mad scared lil punk !
What a fraud story.
Just noticed...nice Mason triangle behind them. Do not believe this story...any of it.
For Those Interested... Like Really Interested He was Arrested Yesterday and Posted Bond Yesterday he was Home this Morning.... Sigh Now lets wait for the Infamous Trial....
That's the blue line privilege if this was someone other than a com all would of been delayed.
That poor child will forever be traumatized.
It's horrific! That poor baby!
This was a tragedy. However, people must understand that cops see evil more often than the normal person. Their job causes them to think the worst possible scenario. Therefore, I believe this officer must have thought the woman was a bad guy. I don’t think it’s just for this officer to be charged with murder.
A bad guy based on what? Enlighten us. Based on what exactly made this officer think it was a bad guy?
Throw the book at this cop! His incompetence ripped a family apart - for a kid to see his aunt gunned down by a unrecognized stranger outside a window! His world is shattered...
Why is there only a little over a minute of this interview accessible online?
@phillyrick back off, the lady wants to be informed, that's her issue, yes, ok.
That's your issue? Seriously?
prayers for this family . don't let the media chose your words or bend them.
Her family served their country and she was killed in her own home on a welfare check ✔ SMFH...😠
He was released on his own recognizance SMFH...
No he wasnt
Giving him a chance to kill himself.
And yet they say America is great. Yeah If you are white.
All eyes on this family. Will they stay on code for justice or buck dance for a bag?? Something tells me we’re not dealing with sellouts this time around.
Small steps to justice.
Arresting is one thing. Getting a conviction is another. As you know, the racist citizens make up the jury pool and they never want to convict these racist officers. Hope they dont go hugging him after the trial.
....And no Bible from the judge, either!
Death Penalty for Officer = Problem Solved = Justice
Beware Black People! The White Supremacist are in here Heavy!
MURDER, NOT THE CASE - ACCIDENTAL MANSLAUGHTER PERHAPS AND AT THE WORST. "THEY" ARE NOT VICTIMS AS "THEY" LIKE TO CLAIM. AND THAT THE POOR THING "WAS JUST PLAYING VIDEO GAMES AT 2:30 AM WITH HER NEPHEW" I'M NOT BUYING. MAYBE IF "THEY" AREN'T SO PRONE TO VIOLENCE, EXTREME DRAMATICS AND OVER REACTING "THEY"/SHE WOULD STILL BE ALIVE TO COLLECT BENEFITS ANOTHER DAY. I FEEL BAD FOR THE POOR COP.
Punishment fits the crime is one thing but what about the effort and plan to make this sort of thing never happen again?Why it has to keep happening?
I am so sorry this family has to go through this. Many prayers are being said for them. This is a matter for which many are deeply troubled, triggered and sorrowful. GOD be with us all always. 🙏
I'm starting to feel some kinda way about the RIP references. I do it too, like when something is so egregious that you don't know what else to say, so we just go, Test in Peace. However, I'm not sure that a person who is murdered at such a young age for absolutely no reason at all can simply Rest in Peace? These senseless murders at the hands of so-called Law Officers keep happening, and the system keeps allowing them to walk free? I don't think anyone should be at peace until Justice is Served and systems are transformed, by any means necessary, as Malcolm would say..Rest in Power..
DEAR BLACK PEOPLE!!!!!STOP hiring Lee Merritt as your attorney! Wtf he do for Bothams case???? Then he lied about info on Joshua Brown how he died. He's a clout chaser.
And youre a nobody. Bringing negative energy here. Loser
if this cop goes to prison i bet this brother is not going to give this POS a huge!
Cop was called to a house cuz the door was open. Cop entered the house while searching spotted 2 guns on the floor. He then shined a light towards the window where he spotted someone, Drew his gun and fired. Cop was on edge not knowing what he walked into, sees 2 guns now he’s alert, gets startled by someone outside the window and reacts
JUST STOP!!! You are twisting the facts already! Cops never entered the home until after she was shot. There's no way he could see any guns inside the house during the 2-3 seconds he shone the light on window, yelled then fired his weapon.
Anyone wanna guess how this will end?! If you understand White Supremacy. Then You-Know The-Answer...
Come and Take it Yeah. White supremacy. Get real.
MARCUS THE LION you are ignorant
I,m not getting this,Officer Arrested on Murder charge,who got murdered ,are we talking Mr Browns Murder?
Chris E. Ok got it,this was about the Women Murdered in her house,,However I would also like to see the cops arrested that murdered Mr BrownThe Dallas PD needs to be Federally investigated but then Who trusts the FBI
This has nothing to do with Joshua Brown. This is a separate incident from early Saturday morning.
Stop with these damn lawyers damn
RIP Atatiana Jefferson! 🙏🙏🙏
Don't agree with the narrative of murder I don't think it fits the case. I do agree with a few decades in prison for negligent homicide or manslaughter. Statistically those fit the narrative better. Either way I guess it's semantics. Long as we get at least a 10 to 12 year sentence it will statistically be justice. If you look up the average time spent in prison for 1st degree murder with premeditation and aggravated circumstances it's only 13 years of a 25 year sentence.
Just heartbreaking. I 🙏for this Family during this very sad time.I pray for REAL Justice! Lord why this is still happening,another beautiful soul taken away,senseless.
Get them all
Props to the family for remaining calm. Sorry for your loss. You'll see her again one day when you meet on that beautiful shore.
The officer will go to hell for breaking this family apart.
BUT the house sure did look like it was broken into though.....the doors open and house was a mess ...........I feel sorry for the officer too.......THE officer shouldnt have shot through the window though.....officer should have came inside the house to assess the situation further though......
It didn't look that way to me and the cops should have knocked and announced themselves.
Don't be using "former and Ex, this guy is a police officer that is no longer working. Once a cop always a cop they made him resign so they wouldn't get a lawsuit pushed against the department.
Firing him AFTER THE FACT won't keep the PD from being sued. Jeez.... 🙄
Actually, they made him resign because he killed an innocent women, you delusional fucktard.
THEY GOT THE SAME BULLSHIT LAWYER, THAT MEANS THAT HAVEN'T BEEN PAYING ATTENTION.
Non emergency welfare check. Why did the cop approach the scene as if it was a violent emergency call?? So confusing and senseless.
She left the doors open, screen doors closed (and probably locked) because it was a nice evening and they were enjoying the cooler air. A very common thing to do and should never result in being killed by a cop.
The officer deserves to die, don't get me wrong, but her door was left wide open at the middle of the night. This wasn't non-emergency.
Stop killing my people
I am SO sorry this has happened to your family. It is breaking my heart. Officers need to carry their OWN insurance policies, so the taxpayers don't have to bear the burden...I'd bet they wouldn't be so trigger happy if that was the case. However, is very EASY for a cop to get a new profession, because a BEAUTICIAN has to have more education than a cop does....true story. Speaking of insurance...SUE THE CRAP OUT OF THAT CITY. Rest in peace, Atatiana...your family is fighting for you. The ONLY thing that's going to STOP this from happening is MONEY, and when all of the cities go bankrupt from the lawsuits these THUGS keep bringing in...the shootings will stop.
These type of crimes will continue to happen until black people realize all black people lives matter.. including black trans women. You have to be outrage about all black lives.. Americas turning into a war zone.. I'm sure Canada a better country..
