Illinois Teen Shouting for Jesus Dies When Police Taser Him
JERSEYVILLE, Ill. — Authorities are investigating the death of a 17-year-old boy who died after officers in this St. Louis-area community shot him twice with a stun gun while he carried a Bible and cordless telephone, shouting “I want Jesus.”
Roger Holyfield died Sunday night at a St. Louis hospital, a day after the former Jersey Community High School’s confrontation with police.
In a statement obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press, police in this community about 40 miles north of St. Louis said Holyfield would not acknowledge officers who approached him, continuing to yell “I want Jesus.”
Now then…My guess is that the ACLU and other Civil Rights organizations won’t do much about this. I dearly hope I’m wrong, but I don’t think I am.
