Title: De'Von Bailey was running from police, shot four times, video shows

A black teenager whose death sparked an outcry in his Colorado hometown was running from police officers when he was shot four times, according to body camera footage and an autopsy report released Thursday.

The bodycam footage from the Colorado Springs Police Department shows De'Von Bailey, 19, running from two officers who were questioning him and another man about a reported robbery before being shot three times in the back and once in the back of his arm.

Bailey's family was "devastated" after seeing the "wholly unjustified killing of their family member," the family's attorneys said in a statement. The teen's family and friends had rallied this week in front of the city's police headquarters, demanding an independent investigation into his Aug. 3 death.

Colorado Springs police did not release a statement on Thursday.

In the graphic video footage from one of the officer's body-warn cameras, Bailey is seen with another individual, identified by CPR News in Colorado as his 19-year-old cousin, Lawrence Stoker.

As one officer questions the teens, Bailey can be seen briefly touching his pocket before the officer tells him to keep his hands away from his pockets. He moves his hands away, making sure they're in view, and appears to exchange words with the officer before both teens put their hands in the air.

The first officer tells the two that the police are going to check and see if either of them have a weapon. Shortly after, a second officer can be seen approaching them from behind. As he does, Bailey turns his head briefly to the left before running away.

The first officer chases Bailey, shouting at him to keep his hands up before firing his gun. Eight gunshots can be heard in the video. Police officials said that both Sgt. Alan Van't Land and Officer Blake Evanson fired their weapons, CPR reported. 

Bailey quickly falls to the ground, while the first officer yells "get your hands up" multiple times. The same officer then tells him to "get down on the ground," taking Bailey's arm as he lies nearly face-down in the street. Blood can be seen coming from his gunshot wounds.

The officers then handcuff Bailey. An object can be seen between his legs, which the officers believe to be a gun. They cut off his shorts to retrieve it.

It remained unclear on Thursday if the object was a gun.

Police said they were on the scene to respond to a robbery threat around 6:45 p.m. In the bodycam footage, one officer can be heard asking Bailey if he goes by the nickname "Spazz," the alleged name of the suspected robber.

"No, sir," Bailey said. 

According to the coroner's report, Bailey was pronounced dead by 7:20 p.m. 

The bullets that hit Bailey perforated his heart, left lung and diaphragm, in addition to penetrating his spleen, triggering massive blood loss that lead to his death, according to the coroner's report.

Darold Killmer, one of the family's attorneys, said the video's release made for a "crushingly difficult" day for the family.

"The video shows that there was no evidence to support that anybody was imminently at risk of being killed or harmed," Killmer told CPR.

"The video shows that he was doing everything within his power in the six or eight or 10 steps that he could take to get away to, in fact, get away.... He did not have a weapon in his hand and had not shown any weapon when he was shot in the back."

Bailey's funeral is Friday in Colorado Springs. (2 images)

Then allow me to clarify on Saturday: It was a gun.

"who were questioning him and another man about a reported robbery"

True, but not the whole truth. The police were questioning him and another man about a reported armed robbery. Meaning they suspected he might be armed. Turns out he was. Good shooting.

From another article:

The victim reported that he’d been approached by two African-American males, and one was holding a gun that he described as a Glock 23. One asked, “What’s in your pockets?” When the victim responded “nothing,” he said one of the assailants started hitting him and he fell to the ground. The men took the victim’s wallet and some money.

The victim described the suspects and said, “I kind of have history with them, so I know where they live.” He described them as two black males. One was skinny with a mustache and a light afro and went by the nickname “Spazz.”

The victim told the dispatcher the second suspect’s name was Lawrence and he was “kind of overweight.” He said both claimed to have guns but only “Spazz” showed a weapon during the robbery.

Spazz' dead, baby, Spazz' dead.

That's why he ran. Wasn't 21. Carrying concealed without a license. Probably a felon (A wild-assed guess, I know). Armed robbery (The victim knew him, for crying out loud). Assault.

All for what? A couple of bucks from a brother's wallet?

"He did not have a weapon in his hand and had not shown any weapon when he was shot in the back."

Government is in the last resort the employment of armed men, of policemen, gendarmes, soldiers, prison guards, and hangmen.
The essential feature of government is the enforcement of its decrees by beating, killing, and imprisoning.
Those who are asking for more government interference are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom.

It has been demonstrated that to turn, then draw a weapon and a fire takes one second and a half.

So much for that “he did not have a weapon in his hand and had not shown any weapon” shit spreading.

“ONE SECOND and a HALF” …

This ain’t no fucking cowboy movie happening here, Deckard, where you wait for the bad guy to draw and shoot first.

"He did not have a weapon in his hand and had not shown any weapon when he was shot in the back."

In other stories you constantly bitch about "But he was unarmed". Now we have a case here where he WAS armed, and you whine, "But he didn't have it in his hand".

What's next? Yeah, he had it in his hand but he didn't shoot? Or "Yeah he shot but he didn't hit anybody?

Stop making excuses for these scumbag criminals.

Yep. Could be that he was trying to put some distance between him and the cops before he fired. Or he was tying to reach cover. Who knows?

Hey. His buddy stayed put. His buddy wasn't shot.

If this was a 16 year old by the name of DAVID... in small town Nebraska, he would have been functional enough to interact with Law Enforcement... and live another day. When you’re born DE’VON, from the jungles of the inner city... you don’t know how to interact with the Po-Po... and100 years of your fellow ghetto thugs, running from, attacking and shooting the Po-Po... get you shot.

Only a (D) or Paultard, would cry.

Just a few days ago, some Obama-like thug asshole, shot 6 Philadelphia police officers, serving a DRUG warrant... and if this same Obama-Like thug asshole was stoped on a vehicle & traffic stop, and the officer put his Glock behind the thugs ear, Dicktard would cry and need a safe space to cope, because it ain’t Dicktard that has to deal with these dysfunctional animals, daily.

And... Dicktard loves drugs.

One of the family's attorneys. That didn't take long. Are they on retainer for the neighborhood?

Bright eyes? More like short eyes.

--------------------------------------

But FOX21 News has learned Bailey had several documented run-ins with police, not counting the one that ultimately to took his life.

Perhaps his family members didn’t know about the charges against him.

Two charges in 2015 and 2016 were ultimately dismissed, but at the time of his death, Bailey was embroiled in a case involving the sexual assault on a child under 15 in a position of trust.

-------------------------------------------- --

Pikes Peak Area Crime Stoppers is asking for the public’s assistance finding its weekly featured fugitives.

DEVON MALIK BAILEY is a Black Male, 19 years old, 5’10” tall, and 151 lbs., with brown hair and brown eyes. BAILEY is wanted for Sexual Assault on a Child (POT).

Worse, you're told by your mama not to trust the police and to run away from them.

From https://libertysflame.com/cgi-bin/readart.cgi?ArtNum=59667

The mother later defended her son's actions by saying "... you can’t blame the children for being afraid of the police."

A video has also emerged which was allegedly captured at the scene. It shows a crowd of people harassing and throwing objects at a group of officers.

Well I don't know about that.

Their mamas know they'll never amount to anything. And if they ever get any money, they ain't gonna be giving it to mama.

So she tells them to get a gun (to defend themselves). To resist arrest. To punch the cops. To run away.

Then when the cops shoot and kill their son, they get a lawyer, go on social media and TV, and cry, cry, cry about their son (Day-von, Dee-shawn, they can't remember) who was turning his life around.

Then they settle for $2.5 million from the city. That's the only way he's going to support his family.
