Two years have gone by since Detroit police murdered 7 year old Aiyana Stanley Jones. Jones was asleep on her grandmother’s sofa when she was shot to death by a Detroit police officer who was showing off for TV videographers from the reality TV cop show “The First 48.”
Police raided the Jones family home in 2010 because they thought a suspect in a murder was hiding in the home.
Time reporting on the murder in 2010:
With a warrant in hand, they planned to search the house for the 34-year-old suspect. Officers say they announced their presence and then tossed a flash grenade into the front window of one side of the duplex to disorient the people inside. Then, police say, officers entered the house, where a 46-year-old grandmother in the front room allegedly struggled with an officer. Next, police say, an officer’s gun discharged, fatally shooting the woman’s 7-year-old granddaughter Aiyana Stanley Jones.
