On July 28, 2016, 18-year old Paul O’Neal was fatally shot by Chicago police. The shooting is under investigation by the Independent Police Review Authority (IPRA). Paul was shot in the back.
Yesterday, numerous videos were released to the public. There is no video of Paul being shot in the back because the body cam of the officer who fired the shot was not turned on.
Some are only looking at this from the side of Paul committing a crime, but there are two sides. Two wrongs never make a right.
Paul O’Neal was captured on video at a gas station in Bolingbrook, Illinois where 3 vehicles were stolen overnight. The vehicles were a 2009 Buick Enclave, a 2003 Honda Odyssey and a 2010 Nissan Rogue. Bolingbrook is a suburb of Chicago.
About 3 hours after the vehicles were stolen in Bolingbrook, a 2002 Jaguar XKR convertible was reported stolen. One of the other stolen cars seen at the gas station was recovered nearby.
At about 7:30 p.m. on July 28, 2016, Paul O’Neal is seen driving the Jaguar on the Southside of Chicago. Chicago police attempted to stop the Jaguar, but it hit a Chicago police SUV and a parked car while continuing to flee. Two officers opened fire while Paul was still in the Jaguar.

Hi there. Santiago here.
As expected it didn’t take long for the conspiracy theorist to surface regarding the killing of Walter Scott and the arrest of Michael Slager for murder. The conspiracies range from hearing stories about a magical leaf that Slager dropped near Walter’s body, to hearing about an alleged ground attack by Walter Scott. Now we are hearing an outright lie claiming that Walter somehow tazed Slager.
I find it a bit disturbing that the blogs pushing this nonsense also forgot to mention the fact that Slager walked back to the area where he fired the shots that killed Walter, picked up the tazer, and brought it back over to Walters laid, and dropped it right next to Walters body.
But it doesn’t stop there. Based on the dashcam footage, we know that the tazer was deployed as Slager stated “Tazer, Tazer, Tazer.”
Slager did not say that Walter took his tazer until after he killed him.
Slager did not say at any point that Walter used the tazer on him. With at least 4 different audio recordings, Slager never once stated that he was tazed.
