Report: Couple Was High on Drugs When Shot by Police

shooting111

The Cleveland community has been outraged over the shooting of a couple after a high speed police chase.   Malissa Williams and her friend, Timothy Russell, were shot by 13 officers who fired 137 rounds of ammunition.  The reports from the Cuyahoga Count medical examiner find that the couple tested positive for various drugs during their autopsies.

Russell, according to authorities, had been using cocaine and Williams had been using amphetamines and marijuana.  Russell and Williams were shot 23 and 24 times by police, respectively.  The pursuit lasted for a half hour and police are not sure why Russell didn’t stop driving. 

Community organizers are claiming that the shooting was racially-motivated, since the couple was unarmed.  But police are saying that the two tried to ram the police car and that they thought they had weapons.  There is no word yet as to whether or not the results of the drug tests will modify the conclusions about the validity of the shooting.

  1. Its their world until we are able to unite and stop killng each other this will continue to happen!!

  2. I have seen them shoot out tires and put down sharps to stop cars during high speed chases. I have even seen them jump out the way when a car was coming at them. So I don't want to hear that they had to use deadly force when they could of used other ways to stop them.

    OMG, one hundred and thirty seven rounds of ammunition to stop a fleeing motorist. These is definitely a case of police brutality and overkill and I hope this case isn't swept under the rung and these racist pigs go free.

  4. Yeah yeah yeah….the police gets away with murder again. No surprise to me.

  5. I live around this sh@# they some racist a** bi@#!'s here in the O.H.10 trust and believe that. The media need to shine a huge spot light on this mu'fu@#!'a. Its been that way for a long, long, looooong time and its one state the U.S. never gives coverage of all the crap that goes on in this piece. They been feelin' some kinda way about us ov'a here and doin' us bad. You go shop'n and spend yo money wit'em and they're quick to let you know, they don't give a fu@#! about you or your money, but will take ya money and sit in ya face and smile like a King Cobra while spit'n venom right in ya face. Brotha's and sista's bet'a STRAP UP! Don't go turn'n in no guns, keep'em! Use'em if necessary. If its yo life, or somebody who's shoot'n at you's life, fu@#! who it is, bust back! Its ya God given right to protect ya'self. Sometimes you gotta do what's right and worry about the consequences later. I ain't finna sit back and let nobody shoot me to death and not serve'em something if I do have it, trust.

  6. how many of those police officers had drugs in their system?……………this bullshyt revelation about the victims being high will be used as leverage in the argument that the massacre/shooting was justifiable. JUSTICE NOW

    Do they have cameras in the cars? If so, they should be that no one can stop the camera or alter. More facts are needed in this story. All police cars should have cameras that cannot be altered so the truth will always come out. With these people on drugs and the police word is solid I wonder will the truth come out. Facts Facts Facts

  9. It's the culture of America, they always look for something on the victims to justify their transgressions. This will never change, black people are fodder for the police.

  10. LIKE I HAVE BEEN SAYING THAT AMERICA HAS ALWAYS ALLOWED AND MOSTLY PROMOTED WHITE RACIST BULLIES TO COMMIT CRIMES! I HAVE COMPLAINTS ABOUT OHIOS CRIMINAL WHITE COPS AND ALL OVER AMERICA THEIR ARE CASES WHERE THE CRIMINALS HAVE GOTTEN AWAY WITH CRIMES AGAINST EVERY COLOR AND RACE OF AMERICAN CITIZENS. THAT's WHY SO MANY PEOPLE ARE BEING FORCED TO TAKE THE LAW INTO THEIR OWN HANDS BECAUSE THE DEVIL IS RUNNING AMERICA AND ITS POLITICAL LEADERS AND LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIAL AND WAR MONGERS ARE ALL DOING EVIL AGAINST HUMANITY. WE MORAL MAJORITY OF THE UNIVERSE HAVE TO STOP COOPERATING WITH THESE DEMONS AND FIGHT BACK! STOP YOUR VOTES AND QUIT GIVING YOUR MONIES AND CONSENTS AND DEMAND THAT THEY BE PROSECUTED AND THAT WE SHOULD BE SEPARATED FROM THESE IMMORAL BEINGS! LETS STOP THEIR MADNESS AND GIVE HOPE BACK TO OUR CHILDREN AND THE WEAK PEOPLE IN THE WORLD! DOUGLAS K. STEWARD IN WASHINGTON DC FOR TRUTH AND JUSTICE FOR ALL NOT JUST SOME! BRING OUR ARMIES BACK TO AMERICA AND PROTECT OUR OWN CITIZENS FROM THESE NEGATIVE PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY THE WORLD! 2023617415

  11. Since when has death been the penalty for being high? The Cleveland PD are nothing more than racist dog murderers. Because of the indignant cries of the Black community over the murder of our brother and sister, the Police Department's Internal Affairs Division has stated that they will conduct an "investigation". The people was not duped by this false promise of justice. The pigs have always put up the front of "investigating its own" whenever the people have become too angered over their outright fascist murders of oppressed people. Nothing ever comes of these so-called investigations.

  12. why so many rounds fired for 2 unarmed people??? High or not it’s wrong and excessive

  13. So, what if they were high. Still didn’t require to be shot that many times when they had no weapons. How do you explain that away? This makes no sense no matter how you look at it. They are really taking there time on this matter,because something isn’t right.

  15. PHUCK THE POLICE.

  16. @Fedup it’s really sad that we need to decode what you are trying to say. And btw everybody doesn’t get high. Now the truly disturbing part in the number of shots fired. Now this article does ‘t say if they were still in the car or not we shot. This bad shooting is a result of racially motivated pursuit rage…

  17. white bastards.

  18. Silence will continue the pleague of Death.

  19. Silence will continue the pleague of Death.

  20. 13 officers, 137 rounds of ammuntion fired each person received 23, 24 shots to their bodies overkil you think.. This is one of those SMDH MOMENT…

  21. Ok so they were high. Why is it taking so long to come back with gun powder residue. They are reporting everything but that, did they find a weapon on the people or even in thecar. And why do they keep talking about these people ramming a police car.

    • They're having a meeting on how best to cover this sh@! up like they always do, so that's why its takin' so long my brotha. Squid to Army salute!

  22. Yes it so sad that we can not stop for the police because we are to high on drugs! NOW WE WANT SOMEONE TO PAY FOR BEING? WAKE THE FUCK UP, THIS IS REAL NOT A GAME! YES, TWO BLACK ARE DEAD FOR THE HIGH!

  23. Silence willl continue the pleague of death, police have tactics to stop a car, the fact that the two were under the influence of drugs which means they were insane, if there were no guns found then why would they assume wrongly that the two had guns. My worry now is that planting a gun just to get away with the murder of two African Americans.

  24. Man that fucked up them cops need to b under jail hell just cause them folks was hi hell dat ain't nan every body b hi hell

  25. yes..its so sad how they keep gettin away with murder

  26. " But police are saying that the two tried to ram the police car and that they thought they had weapons." umm that's what they always say.

    • yeah and they should'a rammed their car back instead'a ram'n over 100 bullets in their a** if that's the case. I think maybe the police was high!!
