    Justice for Stacy Stout

     
    I would like to bring attention to a story that displays injustice and prejudice. There were no violent riots over a fatal shooting of a WHITE young girl, a girl, who was not armed, but shot by multiple officers. She was not arguing or assaulting the police officers. She was not a criminal, but just a girl in the wrong place at the wrong time. Multiple officers could have pulled over the vehicle, arrested her boyfriend, and let her go. She was a granddaughter, mother, daughter, sister, and a friend. Below is part of the story and link. No riots, no looting, no tear gas, no military presence, no nationwide attention, but still a tragic and unjustified murder of a young girl. Where is her justice? I am keeping myself anonymous, and I am not a prejudice person, but with stories like this you can see the difference. At least seven officers from several different agencies fired their guns during the deadly shooting April 9, 2013, near SE 44th and I-35 in Oklahoma City.

    Oklahoma City Police conducted a 3-month criminal investigation and never reported finding a weapon in Stout's car.
    Christopher and Stacie Stout were shot and killed at S.E. 44th and I-35 Tuesday night. Members of the U.S. Marshal's Fugitive Task Force were serving a warrant in the area when Christopher Stout allegedly tried to run from members of the task force. Investigators say at least eight law enforcement agencies were involved. Investigators say approximately seven officers opened fire on the suspect's car hitting the car with more than 75 rounds.
    Stacie Stout, the passenger in the suspect's car did not have a warrant out for her arrest.

    After the vehicle was stopped, seven law enforcement officers jumped out of their vehicle and opened fire on Chris and Stacey, riddling the vehicle with at least 75 bullet holes. Stacey Stout is not known to have a criminal record.
