Amir Worship Lawsuit: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

Amir Worship is the 12-year-old son of Crystal Worship, an Illinois mother who filed a lawsuit Thursday accusing police of “terrorizing” her children. Amir, Ms. Worship’s youngest son, was shot in the knee by a white officer while sitting on his bed with his hands raised.

Here’s what you need to know:

1. SWAT Officers Raided The Residence Back in May



Almost two dozen SWAT officers from Country Club Hills and Richton Park entered Ms. Worship’s residence back on May 26th with “flash-grenades and automatic rifles.” They had a search warrant for Ms. Worship’s boyfriend, Mitchell Thurnam.

The SWAT teams rushed into the residence dressed in “army fatigues with black cloth covering their faces and wearing goggles,” the family’s attorney told CBS 2 News. They “battered open the two entry doors and set off between two and five flash-bang grenades,” around 5 a.m. while Amir and his two older brothers were sleeping.

1. Would it have made a difference if it was an "SWAT officer of color"?

Any "news" about whether the "victim of color" was following orders or not? Are "people of color" the biggest whiny sniffling "the worlds out to get me" victims the world has ever seen?

He should have "followed orders", he wouldn't have "gotten shot". "people of color" seem to think "the rules dont apply to them", I'm sure he'll use his huge cash payout for something noteworthy though, maybe he'll enroll in a "college of color" and get a worthless education.

4. This is a 12yo kid, asleep in his bed at 5am. Obviously you never raised any kids

to understand their coherence level when first, abruptly awakened at such a hour of the morning.

There is little wonder why more and more people hate cops...

5. How about cops just quit policing "neighborhoods of color" altogether?

They're not wanted, that much is obvious.

6. I read the linked article. I am generally supportive of law enforcement. However, in this case I

think the officer was negligent. According to the article, after replacing his flashlight in his vest, he re-grasped his weapon causing it to discharge and injure the boy. It was obviously an accident, but the officer did not have his weapon under control. If he actually did cover his body camera and badge in order to cover up his screw-up, he should be fired. The investigation should clarify this.

There was nothing in the article to suggest that the boy was non-compliant or aggressive toward the officer. That is an assumption, possibly based on his being a black kid in a high crime neighborhood, or the assumption that the cop is always right. In the few encounters I have had with police, they have been highly professional and respectful while doing their job, but they are human and can mess up when stressed. I would suggest withholding judgement until all the facts are known.
