Ask yourself Why didn’t you hear about THIS Police Shooting?


Kansas police shot unarmed suicidal teen 16 times as family says they begged them not to

Family members of a teen who was shot at least 16 times by police in Ottawa, Kansas said this week that the 18-year-old was unarmed and suicidal when he was gunned down. Brandy Smith told KCTV that police were there when her nephew, 18-year-old Joseph Jennings, had tried to kill himself with pills last week. “Tonight is the night goodbye everyone!!!!! It was truly a good ride! And I’m sorry for who I might of hurted (sic) and people that I may of offended, But I love all my family and I hope you don’t hold this against me,” he reportedly wrote on Facebook before trying to overdose.

About 10 minutes later, Jennings swallowed 60 pills. And Smith said two officers took him to Ransom Memorial Hospital.

Jennings survived, and was released from the hospital two days later. But only three hours after that, he was on a “suicide mission” when he walked to Orscheln Farm and Home, according to his aunt.

Smith recalled that around six officers responded, and two of them had helped save Jennings’ life by taking him to the hospital after his overdose just days before.

“It was like six — six officers, and one cop yelled, ‘Bag him!’ And they bagged him,” she said. “And he kind of puffed up a little bit, and then they bagged him two more times, and then like 16 shots rang out, and they shot him. And he fell to the ground.”

Jennings was later pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

Smith said that she was only feet away from Jennings and did not see a weapon.

“And I told them, if he has a gun, it’s a BB gun,” she insisted. “But we don’t know that… He knew that if he acted like he had a gun that they would shoot him, and I told them that.”

“I told them, ‘That’s Joseph Jennings, he’s suicidal, he’s upset, don’t shoot him,’” Smith added. “And that’s what I don’t understand is, why did it take them shooting him 16 times at least for them to bring him down? Why didn’t they bag him, knock him down, and then go and take care of whatever they needed to take care of?”

Smith said that her husband tried to help, but police threatened to shoot him too.

“My husband was going to tackle him. He was within arms reach. They said to get back or they were going to shoot him,” she explained.

Following standard procedures for officer-involved shootings, Ottawa police turned the case over to the Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI). Officers involved in the shooting were placed on administrative leave.

Citing the KBI investigation, a spokesperson for the department declined to comment on whether or not Jennings was armed.



Pray for the Jennings Family today.

Why the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is more Hype than Thoughtful: U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) | U.S. Government Animal Testing Programs | Animals Used for Experimentation | The Issues | PETA

“Beagle in an Ice Bucket”

Beagles are by far one of the most Popular Animal Test Subjects for their extremely trusting and Docile nature…

ALS Research means Animal Testing and specifically ‘creating’ animals with the genetic dispositions to develop ALS so they can test drugs that they KNOW will fail in human drug trials 92 percent of the time.

Meanwhile, hundreds (sometimes THOUSANDS)of animals will be inflicted with Torturous Testing, Death, and Disection for the ‘benefit of science’ that will fail 92% of the time in humans.

Don’t support failing science.

Support finding the cause and give your Time, Talents and Treasure to organizations who refuse animal testing, cruelry, and senseless slaughter.

The Heathcare Questions that SHOULD have been asked, but never will…

Radical Idea Alert:  Smokers should pay their own ‘Healthcare’ costs WITHOUT benefit of Commercial or Government Insurance

Don’t get me wrong here… It’s not JUST that I don’t want (and SHOULDN’T be FORCED by the Government) to PAY for your Idiotic Health Destroying Decisions… (yes, I REALLY think this after losing THREE of my Immediate Family in the last 4yrs from Long Term Smoking)…

It’s that I want you NOT TO MAKE them but instead make BETTER, Smarter and Healthier ones for your Health and the benefit of your Families,

so that THEY won’t have to go thru what MY Family has.
