Many wanted to know why they were not being allowed see the video taken of the shooting, in which Decynthia Clements, an African-American Elgin resident, was shot by Lt. Christian Jensen, a white police officer, in an incident that took place about 2 a.m. on Interstate 90, near Route 59.
…An autopsy conducted Tuesday determined Clements had been shot multiple times. The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office deemed her death a homicide, but declined to provide information on how many times she was shot or if toxicology exams will be conducted.
The police’s version of this story is fishy as hell. Police departments and organization around the country have reasonable expectation of respect and cooperation if they are so willing to sling absolute bullshit to protect their officers and their ability to commit malfeasance. Policing can’t work without the community’s trust and the communities cannot trust when they are being jerked around and lied to.
