Illinois Cop Shoots Unarmed Black 12-Year-Old in Bed With His Hands Up in Botched Raid, Then Blatantly Tries to Cover It Up — Atlanta Black Star

A gang of SWAT officers “terrorized” innocent children when they barged into a Chicago home during a predawn raid and shot an unarmed 12-year-old sitting in bed with his hands up, an Illinois mother’s lawsuit alleges.

In a complaint filed Thursday, Crystal Worship claims nearly two dozen Country Club Hills and Richton Park SWAT officers burst into her home on  May 26 with automatic rifles and exploding flash grenades while executing a search warrant meant for her boyfriend. The pre-dawn raid ended with Worship’s son, Amir, being shot in the knee by a white police officer.
