Two white Seattle law-enforcement officers opened fire on a pregnant, black mother of four Sunday morning, killing the 30-year-old in front of her children after she called police to report a burglary.
Charleena Lyles was living in transitional housing for homeless families in Seattle, according to the Seattle Patch, when she dialed 911 to report an attempted burglary.
KIRO7 News reports that the police officers knew Lyles, so they sent two police officers because they were “concerned for their safety”— considering the “threat” of the undersized, petite woman whom family members called “tiny” and said “weighs, like, nothing soaking wet.”
Seattle police have released audio of the police shooting that ended with Charleena Lyles dead in front of her children.
The recording reveals that officers were aware that children might be in the home before they opened fire in the apartment.
Lyles allows officers to enter, and she explains the break-in to the cops. The children can be heard in the background as she answers questions. The conversation seems civil as she lists the items missing, and then the officers yell “Get back!” approximately 11 seconds before gunshots are heard.
The police have issued few details, but we can predict exactly what will happen next:
- Seattle police officers will smear the victim with menacing photographs and release her criminal history.
- The officers will be placed on paid leave, meaning that taxpayers will continue to give them full pay even though they are not working (referred to by many, including some dictionaries, as “vacation”).
- The officers will meet with police-union officials and create a story that revolves around how they “feared for their life.”
- There will be a march, a community vigil and a hashtag.
- The police who shot her will never serve a day in jail.
Yes. The two officers—an 11-year veteran and a “newer” officer—have been placed on paid leave.
