Family recalls loving nature of Seattle mom killed by police

Posted June 25, 2017

"If the officer has time, space and cover, they have more options than using deadly force, but that's not necessarily going to be the case", said Sue Rahr, a former sheriff and the executive director of the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission.

"We continue to have black men and women being shot and killed by police", Michelle Sarju who attended the march told CNN affiliate KOMO.

He said McNew, 34, a Seattle officer since 2008, asked him to Taser Lyles.

In the Sunday 911 call, Lyles calls to report a break-in, telling the operator she "noticed some stuff missing" after a trip to the store.

Lyles was killed after police officers responded to reports of a burglary near Seattle's Magnuson Park.

"When we call police for help, we expect protection".

Bible said that the casual chat recorded of officers talking before walking up to Lyles' apartment shows that, in his mind, "They were not taking her plight seriously enough, and she died for it".

Lyles' family attorney James Bible criticized the release of the video and questioned the department's motives.

Suddenly, though, a confrontation erupted.

New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu says national policy on climate change will emerge from US cities, now that President Donald Trump has withdrawn the country from the Paris climate accords. There are sounds of rapid movement, the woman yelling "Get ready, (expletive)!" and the police repeatedly warning her to get back before five shots are fired. What is my sense of urgency?

After the shooting, McNew said, "one of the little babies crawls out from behind and right on top of her. her. upper body, you know resting his head against her".

The mother of four said in the 911 call that she had gone out and come home to find someone had broken in.

"There will be a thorough investigation", Whitcomb said.

Over the past year, family members say she had struggled with depression but had sought help. Nothing absolves us from how this ended.
