Parents on a Date Were Asleep in Car When Cops Arrived and Killed Them Both

couple-killed-by-police-while-sleeping-in-their-car
Inglewood, CA — On Sunday, police responded to a call of a suspicious vehicle parked on Manchester Boulevard around 3:10 am. When police arrived, they engaged in a 45-minute long standoff before opening fire on the man and woman inside the vehicle, killing them both.

In the news release on Monday, following the shooting, police claimed that the woman in the car had a gun. Scott Collins, a spokesman for the Inglewood Police Department said that the couple refused to obey the officers’ commands to exit the vehicle. The officers then feared for their safety and opened fire on the car — killing the couple.

The woman was pronounced dead shortly after the shooting, and the man succumbed to his injuries after paramedics transported him to a local hospital, according to the LA Times. 

The shooting seemed like an open and shut case until the next day. Mayor James Butts, while responding to questions about the shooting, opened up a huge can of worms — both the man and the woman were unconscious.

For at least 45 minutes, police attempted “to rouse” them in an effort “to de-escalate the situation,” said Butts.

After admitting that the couple was asleep, Butts quickly defended the officers, noting, “Obviously at some point they were conscious because somebody felt threatened.”

However, that notion has yet to be proven and is particularly unlikely due to the fact that not a single officer received so much as a scratch, nor did the couple have any reason to be violent.

Both of the victims were parents; Kisha Michael, 31, a single mother of three sons, and Marquintan Sandlin, 32, a single father of four daughters.

Michael’s twin sister Trisha stated the obvious when she said that it’s possible that Kisha merely passed out on the way home from their night out.

Families for both described them as devoted parents who made arrangements for care of their children while they took a night off, according to NBC Los Angeles.

“The police ain’t telling us nothing,” said Trisha Michael after being met with tight lips from the department.

“He was a loving father,” said Sandlin’s sister Leandra Faulkner.  “All he cared about was his girls, getting them right.”

Of course, as is standard procedure for all those killed by police, their arrest records were released to shame them. Michael was on probation for a misdemeanor last year, and 7 years ago, Sandlin was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm in Los Angeles.

According to his relatives, Sandlin had a ‘rough life’ but had turned it around and was working as a successful truck driver.

Sadly, these children will now grow up knowing that their parents were taken from them by cops, scared of a sleeping couple.

  • Concerned Citizen

    Perhaps the mother had the gun on her lap for protection while they slept. At least they didn’t drive drunk. These parents did not deserve to die!

    • Mary Hagerty

      Did she really have a gun, or did the cops just say that to excuse the murders of two sleeping people? Lying about weapons is a known police tactic to get out of trouble. Sometimes they go as far as to plant a weapon.

      • Conscious

        Let’s say they had a gun. How did the police see it if they were asleep. Hmmm that makes it irrelevant

    • John and Linda Robel

      WHO GIVES A FUCK ABOUT “DRIVING DRUNK”? IT IS DETERMINED BY AN ARBITRARY NUMBER THAT IS EXTORTED BY THE UNITED STATES CONGRESS..WE ENCOURAGE PEOPLE EVERYDAY TO ANNUL THIS POLICE STATIST HORSESHIT. A FELONY CAN BE EXPUNGED BUT NOT A FUCKING MISDOMEANOR DUI. GET A GRIP. THIS NOTHING BUT A GOVERNMENT RACKET AND PROFFITEERING OF THE DUI INDUSTRY.

  • Kevin Burnett

    Sounds like more #blackliesmatter twits.

    • Alan Lammle

      Sounds more like #Bluethugliesmatter twits.

      • Duryea L. Williams

        Smh……ignorance is contagious

    • Talisha Harris

      No where in the article talks about that movement. From the article it sounds like innocent people, who were not armed, and who were sleep were killed. Did I miss something?

      • Anon ymous

        They may or may not have had a gun. But, having a gun is no reason for the police to shoot & kill someone.

      • Nikkia Bailey

        Maybe they were too drunk to drive

    • Anon ymous

      Black lives matter also! What part of that is so hard to understand?

      • Kburnett isanidiot

        Stop being an ignorant fuckwad racist troll, Kevin Turdnett.

      • Philip Williams

        Kevin Burnett -These are the incidents that make ‘B L M”

  • Couldn’t those idiots shoot the tires instead? These fuckin pigs don’t know how to think.

    • They know how to think. Yep. They think it’s ok to kill black people. And the institution of policing agrees. State sanctioned genocide

    • Marie Laveaux – hmm, seems like maybe you are jumping to conclusions. I would like to see more on this story before I make any judgements.

    • Well, you might be right, but opinions are like assholes, theyre fun to finger.

    • Ryan. No bullets out. All bullets in. Genocide: the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation.

    • IPD is a domestic terrorist organization

    • Always life or death with them assholes.

    • Marie Laveaux – I’m not disagreeing with you, I just always like to see some real info before I jump to conclusions. Not just a headline. I have no idea what happened and will not put blame on either side unless I see some hard evidence.

    • Read the article like i did then.

    • Plus i have enough experience with the law to steer clear of it, paycheck is small and attitudes and egos are abound. You dont know what i know about them.

    • I dont just pull opinions out of my ass, i know what im talking about thats why i seem wrong lol

  • On Los Angeles local news report they said the vehicle was stopped in the middle of Manchester Blvd not parked on the side of the road. (Both are illegal) seemed strange the way it was presented to us. This makes it even weirder. I passed by and seen there is a large memorial for them. To bad there is no video to see what really happened.

    • Oh I bet there is a merchant video

    • There is a 7-11 right there. I didn’t notice what else was around the convince store may have video.

    • Cops don’t like being filmed.

      For obvious reasons.

    • Yea I was harassed by some a few years back on Hollywood Blvd and intimidated into deleting video of them using excessive force on cooperating men. I even showed them my press ID and tried to be allowed to keep the video they said fuck the press.

  • They’re a danger to themselfs, lets kill them. Seems legit.

  • Fuck me .Love the “freedom” you guys think you have over there

    • The intelligent of us know we’re not. I can’t even comprehend what’s wrong with the people here that still believe we’re in “the land of the free and home of the brave”. It’s frightening to say the least.

  • Cops felt threatened by sleeping couple???

  • This is so fucked up..Wtf is wrong with people. Why can’t any one just act right? All you fuckers carrying so much hate on race..it’s ridiculous. I’m sick of it!! An alot if peeps, an I mean alot. Are following an feeding this shit through media an all!! I hve mad love for all race in the world. Am does any one even hve a pure blood line now a days? I think not!! So don’t be fooled by just the way your skin looks!!

  • Thom Prentice

    you popups won;t leave and there is no way to close them

  • So disgusting !!!!!

  • Just wrong !

  • No words

  • Todd Williams

  • nice infotisments

  • Colin Parker

    I never understood why their prior arrest recods are released, It’s not admissible in any court for a current charge so why are the police allowed to use it?

    • Alan Lammle

      To help soften the public in their attempt to make them look like they did nothing wrong in shooting 2 people in cold blood…

      • Gary Harryman

        Shouldn’t the records of every cop at that scene also be released?

      • Tray Pressley

        To label them as “criminals” so they can justify the murder.

    • MarkyMark NdaHouse

      To demonize the dead…

    • Mary Hagerty

      I agree, but please don’t use all CAPS to write. It’s way harder to read.

  • America needs help……………..none in sight!

  • Sadly the government insists that they want to take guns away from civilians, for only police officers have training and are responsible enough to handle guns. Yet, I’ve seen more mass shootings and innocent people dying in the hands of cops than in the hands of “irresponsible citizens”. Crazy ah?

    • Cops kill almost 3 people a day in the USA.

    • Is that true Marco Emilio Giovanni Maltese? That’s truly horrifying if so. If you have a source of those statistics, I would appreciate the link for it. I know it’s bad. I’m not denying that. But I am even more disgusted if it is that bad. :'(

    • I’ve read that cops killed more than 1000 people in the USA in the last 3 years. But I’m sorry I don’t have the link, you can search and you will find it easily.
      I think USA people should be more scared of cops than of terrorists.

    • What government wants to take guns away from civilians? Not the USA.

  • wtf is this real? I dunno if this page is satire, conspiracy theory or just plain bullshit sometimes. God damn wait till President Trump comes in AMERICA “ya’ll” deserve Donald Trump. I said ya’ll right, right?

    • Yes it’s real.

    • I swear when this page puts out a post people need to have a bullshit scale, it’s really confusing…. like 1-10, 1 being the least amount of BS and 10 being the most.

    • Joe Craveiro it’s real… Check google news in California

    • That’s why you watch the video (there isn’t one on this one) and come to your own conclusion. No journalism is completely unbiased. Do research, get multiple sides/sources, and form an independent opinion.

  • I really don’t like this.. but I’m not going to support the new emotion icons.. All we wanted was a F’king Dislike Button.

  • I’m stunned.. i can no longer believe this. This is going to be talked about in the future (if we still have one) just as we talk now about Stalin’s regime… or Sadam Hussein’s…. or Pol Pot. From now on even if we discover new life 100 triljon lightyears away traveling by mega-super-freak-aliesh tech vehicles.. we’ll still be the most amazing embiciles of the universe.

  • Absolutely pathetic. No empathy, no common sense. Only stupid pointless killing. There should be a federal investigation into how we train these officials. They’re all becoming murderers.

  • The fact that there are enough of these stories coming from america for several to be posted everyday proves how messed up the place is. I would not want to be a black person living in america today. I wouldn’t live there at all. Nothing will happen to the officers. They should be sentenced for murder, and receive a full sentence. Police officers over there intruding on people’s property and killing pets, killing people just walking down the street or washing their car. I’d i was an american the only reason i’d want to own a gun was to defend my self against police officers.

    • You shouldn’t believe everything you are reading online. It’s bad right now, but it’s not nearly as bad as many are making it out to be. All of these innocent victims are not nearly as innocent as they are initially made out to be. When the truth finally comes out on most of these stories, it’s on page 6 and nobody takes the time to post it because it does not fuel there agenda to spread hate and prejudice.

    • blacks being mistreated/killed are all you hear about 3x more whites are killed

    • America is overrated bunch of overworked under paid miserable people who have no time to enjoy life cause they slaving for the 9-5 paycheck to make ends meet

    • It’s all countries. Wake up

    • David Potgieter – haha! I’ll stay here in America. It’s not that bad. I would like someone to point out this “paradise country” they think exists out there somewhere.

    • Ryan Robbins. Look up Jack Yantis. #justiceforjack

    • it is true everyone has agendas… im sure there are a lot of people in general dying in america.. but i know from life that the people with the power are usually the assholes. I would say that at least 80% of all male human beings struggle to handle power reasonably. females would be close too. When it is appointed rather than earned, such as when someone is called a police officer and given a weapon that can kill people with ease, people tend to not handle it well. I heard a while ago that some parts of the world do not use equipment they would not fire at themselves. And they are made to. It teaches people restraint.

    • The police across America are being demonized by a sickness in the system that wants to put us against one another. That human is a human ,none of us our without fault or live life without ever feeling in over our head….possibly there is another way

  • Phil Montgomery wtf???

  • Common sense says if you approve of this keep voting the same two psarties back in each time… Don’t blame me I vote Libertarian!

    • You actually believe that voting makes a difference?

    • Try it and see… If everyone voted for just one Libertarian candidate in just one election, the other two mparties would respect the rights of the people in an instant! Numbers don’t lie my friend.

    • I suppose if “everyone” voted for that one independent/libertarian candidate, then maybe we would have a fighting chance. Sadly that will never happen. The vast majority of people have been brainwashed by the two main parties. With the division they have created they can easily put in any candidate they choose, how can anyone prove that it wasn’t predetermined?

  • Your pop-up is getting really annoying to the point there is no “x” in the corner to close it so I am unable to read the actual article …

  • I just watched a news video of this story. The mayor said the couple were passed out when police arrived. “Police spent 45 minutes trying to rouse them and de-escalate the situation”.
    How is there a situation to de-escalate if they are passed out?

    • What I read is they refused to leave the vehicle. If this is true, obviously something happened. I’m interested to see some real information on this incident.

    • so they deserve to die, either because they were passed out or refused to leave the vehicle? oh.. that’s real nice. I like how we justify the most absurd crap.

    • Execution is not the cops’ job nor their privilege

    • Hey Ryan, why are you such a Copsucker? With all the evidence of execution style killings by the filth, why is this so hard to believe? Talk about head in the sand syndrome.

    • Ryan said nowhere in his comment that they deserved what happened. All he said was that another source had different information. If another source has clashing info, of course one of them is going to be wrong. No need to bash him.

    • Murdered in their sleep.

    • They spent 45 minutes trying to wake them up and then were like hey lets just shoot em they might wake up then.

  • Not shocked

  • justice is for WASP only the bend and apply it to suit their whim

  • That law needs to be changed yo. Good call by sleeping in a parking lot, should go to jail for it, let along be shot.

  • Some groups must be trying to start to a race conflict and some are just happy with Anarchy. I would never call them for anything. They don’t seem to know who or when to shoot. Or maybe they are all amped up on steroids all the time. pitiful. I will keep the children in prayer.

  • Blue Thugs

    All cops are cowards, never seen one that wasn’t a coward and bully. One of the cops got tired of waiting and said “gun” that was all the excuse they needed to open fire. What if that was a white couple with a gun in the car,nearly everyone has a gun on person or in the car these days. What if they have a permit or concealed carry permit. Do you fucking think the cops would have fired 62 rounds into that car and killed the white couple, well do you?. If one of the thug cops did holler gun, no one can ever say anything to contradict them. Cops know if only one side is left alive, no one can say otherwise. Better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6. That is every cops motto, as they know they are above the laws for mere mortal humans.

    • Linda Brown

      Chickenshit Bullies !!!!! This B.S. Has to stop. I belive all you say as I have been targeted in Canada. First Nations People,drunk & drive teens and pot smokers are all targets where I live. Every skin color fair game on last two. For sure these Peace Officers should be heald accountable face an open hearing ( open to public ) ” a fair trial ” and then deal with courts decision. I’m not sure if this happened to my friends it would not end in graveyard. These murders must face charges and hopefully Murder One.

    • USN Veteran

      BT, I respect your opinion however do not fully agree with you. I do know a few LEO’s. Good stock. Adult Scout Leaders. And there was an Officer from my childhood past, whom mentored me. However, I can not defend other LEO’s actions. I firmly believe that an armed society is a polite society.

      ARIZONA STATE CONSTITUTIONAL PROVISION — Article 2, Section 26.

      “The right of the individual citizen to bear arms in defense of himself or the State shall not be impaired, but nothing in this section shall be construed as authorizing individuals or corporations to organize, maintain, or employ an armed body of men.”

      Arizona respects the right of all U.S. citizens to carry a concealed handgun with or without a permit, or to carry openly while in this state. An Arizona resident permit can be obtained for the purposes of carrying concealed while in other states that offer recognition or reciprocity.

      Castle Doctrine Enacted
      No-Net Loss No Legislation
      Right to Carry Confidentiality Provisions Enacted
      Right to Carry in Restaurants Legal
      Right to Carry Laws No Permit Required
      Right To Carry Reciprocity and Recognition Outright Recognition
      Right to Keep & Bear Arms State Constitutional Provisions With Provisions

      As such, Arizona has fewer crimes per capita committed with a firearm as does California. How does extrapolate these facts? Perhaps as Arizonians have come to accept firearms as a know factor in their daily lives, whereas Californians do not. Perhaps California’s draconian laws encroach upon human mental health? Whereby inhibiting residents of the State of California to live in fear rather than confidence?

      I for one shall leave this contemptuous State, seeking solitude of which only a truly free society can bring. I shall make Arizona my final resting place. (I expect in this forum environment, there may be egregious comments to the “final resting place”). 🉑

      I respect all of my fellow American Citizens and their Constitutional RIGHT to express their opinions, as protected by the United States Constitutional First Amendment.

    • Margie Campbell-Threadgill

      Maybe I missed something in the article, but does it state that the cops fired 62 rounds in the car? If so, I missed it.

    • Fed1718 XXX

      Department of justice has statistics on police killings and being white doesn’t make you immune, in fact MORE whites were killed by police than blacks in the last 20 years. Doesn’t excuse this horrible murder of an innocent couple but please don’t fall prey to deluded thinking that being white makes a difference. Look for yourself.

  • How is anyone white or black ever supposed to trust a police officer these days?

  • Blue Thugs

    Every American needs to watch the Documentry ” Peace Officer “. Download for free. Worthy of watching.

  • this i sad but its edited pretty sneaky. i mean the witness… we didn’t even hear the question?

  • THERE HAS TO BE MUCH MORE TO THIS STORY! IF NOT , THESE “OFFICERS” ARE MURDERERS !?

  • so crazy

  • Poor coppies, pissed off because of silence. We MUST FIRE just in case…

  • crazy!

  • There is something wrong in America for something like this to happen. They were out on a date and are now dead – what the eff is going on?

    • Your government is the Illuminati – They have an agenda to enslave the population … It’s working.

  • Wow

  • All they did was the right thing, pull over and sleep it off, maybe they shouldve flattened their own tire so the cops wouldnt bother them lol.

  • sleeping or not , theyre members of THE PUBLIC and are enemies of the cops , need to be treated as such .. de-escelating a sleeping suspect situation is HARD man ..

    • Fuck you dude. My dad is a good cop and i judge his actions too. You are biased. I’m not and leave ppl alone, they never bother with flat tires so fuck off.

  • Chris Cochran

    Every single one of these cops needs to be charged with Murder, and the police need to pay to make those kids end up having a good life since they will never have their parents to give them one

    • Gary Harryman

      Yes every cop at that scene is guilty of the same crime. Since they acted as a gang, they should stand trial as a gang and all be charged with the same crime – murder.

  • I wish people would stop and think for a minute about how the government is ALLOWING police to murder citizens and that over the last 2 years these incidents are occurring a hundred times a year. It’s all part of the Big Plan to remove ALL YOUR RIGHTS and TERRIFY YOU. … PS : Yes, 9/11 was an inside job. Think.

    • A hundred times a year? In 2015 police in the states killed over 1200 people. Most of which were unarmed.

  • Police feels threatened by naked suspects, by people in a car, old suspects, kids, sleeping people, passed out people, disabled people, homeless people,……WTF is wrong with them???

    • American cops have been given free rein to do whatever they want — The government ENCOURAGES police brutality.

  • Lucas Vegen

    So damn sad.

    I dont understand, maybe im to young, maybe the UK is completely different.

    Black lives are being slaughtered even in their sleep and we sit and watch idol.

    I learned at a young age. The Country will only change when its forced to, black people need to stand up, we are not shooting practice and we will raid stores, court rooms and banks in the 100’s or 1000’s if Money and Property is all they care about.

    More may die, but we all die eventually and will die sooner if we watch idol. This is the world you want to live and raise your kids in? Really!?

    This is not hate talk, but Black lives matter marches and speeches should be the calm before the storm… If they continue to kill us and our Children in our sleep. I dont think talking should be our last effort. How many more will die

  • Wes-Wayne Broom

    • Damn man. It’s baffling why they can never just “detain” anyone that’s black, all cops ever do is shoot first ask questions later.

  • Here is a picture of all the people who were shot because they were obeying lawful police orders.

  • If police kill a white child, how long would it take before a policy change occurs?

  • Desiree M. Mondesir

    INSANE. I KNOW all cops are not like this but the ones who are…God help them. Or rather, God help the people they senselessly murder and their remaining loved ones. How on earth does a sleeping couple threaten you, causing you to “fear for [your] life”?!?!

      I fell asleep in my truck on a very cold night in front of my house. A police officer wanted to arrest me for sleeping in it, but the night was so cold, he got numb hands and left.

    • Ross Thompson

      Because they’re scary black people with magic powers.

  • this of course will be swept under the rug as quickly as possible.. they messed up bad on this one.. i would love to see the dash cams vids. but im sure that too is now gone.. very sad that we can no longer trust any person in uniform.

  • Sick pigs

  • Ive slept in my car because i didn’t want to drive drunk and at 3 am im woke up to guns pointed at me and im getting searched. True story just a few months ago. Nazis

  • how does one “de-escalate” a situation where the occupants of the car are asleep?

  • David Lynn Courtney

    So sad that this behavior is actually defended by those we elect to public office.

  • freaking terrible and shameful

  • roomtempIQ

    The entire legal system is skewed, in favor of those who have money. No doubt black folks are unfairly targeted/abused/killed by cops, but us poor white folks get cop abuse as well, but us poor whites don’t seem to be killed by cops as often as black folks.

    That being said, I recently moved to a very rural county and the Sherriff’s Deputies here are stand-up good guys. They are not cowards or bullies. That is one reason I moved here.

    • B Alan Eisen

      I wouldn’t compare rural life with inner city life at all. Rural people respect each other. They help each other. The police are neighbors.
      You can explain inner city hell to yourself.

    • Ян Кариси

      In 2015 the police in USA murdered 303 Black people and 578 White people. Total killed of all was 1140.

      So far in 2016 the police in USA murdered 33 black people and 81 White people. Total killed so far as of February 27 is 166.

      But, more whites than blacks you say..??? Simple, Only Black Lives Matter to the main stream media. Their mission is to promote an agenda to put us common folk against one another. Also, imagine if us whites acted like blacks when we have one of our own killed by police? When are whites going to loot and riot?

      • Thomas Headen III

        You Riot when your sports teams lose, or win, for that matter. Percentages sir, say that black men are 21 times more likely to be killed by police than white men. I think if the percentage were reversed, you would be alarmed as well. God bless.

      • Michael McMaster

        To put it in perspective, if police were shooting people in a colourblind fashion then you’d expect that for every 100 people shot, 12-13 of them would be black, and 68 would be white. Or to put it another way: Left handed people are about 10% of the population. If it turned out that year after year they were 30% of the people killed by police, it would be fair to ask why they were being singled out disproportionally.

      • Anna Black

        Whites Loot and Riot during sports. The real question is where is the All lives matter when this happens?

        • Daniel robins one yahoo.com

          Difference is blacks are killed for being black

  • out and out murder plain and simple

  • it’s a wonder they didn’t sneak in and hancuff them first/musta been pretty scary for those officers though

  • Katt Marugg

  • Reuben James Hunt

    This is what happens when there are IQ limits on police officers

  • Woops, they did it again.

  • Todd Schacherl

    So now sleeping while black is a capital offense? “If only they had cooperated while sleeping, they wouldn’t have been shot.” Is that what we are to believe?

    • Deloren Tucker

      Exactly shit makes no sense

  • wtf…

  • John and Linda Robel

    The Blue Code of Silence is well established and routinely used. Tim Egan wrote “Breaking Blue” a book that documents the historical corruption of these “Big Brave Heroes”.

  • Nancy Keys

    They had me confused when they said the woman’s twin sister name Kisha???

  • Blue Thugs

    Everyone in America needs to watch the documentry/movie called ” Peace Officers”. I bet a thousand to a cop’s doughnut there was no gun even in the car. If so it was planted after killing them probably.

  • Stayce

    Wow, I didn’t know things were this bad . It just seems that being black is so wrong anymore. Why do these things keep happening? I just ask that all cops and law enforcement be mindful of what they are doing and double check their situation before over reacting. Now kids are without parents, this is ridiculous. Bless the babies and their parents.

  • Huh I always thought the conscious scared the police more, i.e. Us. Oh wait they can’t tell who’s conscious and who isn’t. Why was I born with less rights than my parents, and my younger family member born with less freedoms than I was born with? The fuck happened. Did we stop thinking.

  • If you have to “Rouse someone” in order to “De-escalate the situation,” guess what? ….THERE IS NO SITUATION! … Dumb ass, murderous fucks.

  • FUCK THESE KIND OF MOTHER FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT POLICE WHO ARE JUST BULLYS WITH A BADGE AND A GUN HOPE THEY ALL DIE HORRIBLE PAINFULL DEATHS PIECES OF SHIT!!!! BROKE A WHOLE FUCKING FAMILY FOR WHAT? PUSSY BITCH ASS TRIGGER HAPPY PUSSY ASS PIGS SMFH!

    This has to stop, this is insane 7 orphans. Unarmed people killed by those who are supposed to serve and protect, crazed gunmen killing indiscriminately. This isn’t the wild west, this is a war zone. I know guns can be a tool as much as a wepon. A knife, a stick , a rock, a fist, can be a deadly wepon. How do we fix this start making every stich of clothing out of Kevlar. Replace fluoride with Prozac. Can we learn anything from places that don’t have a problem like Iceland. It has to stop. The Officers involved should have been interviewed by civilians before the went to Police Academy, maybe they weren’t good with serve and protect.

  • Show me the video!

  • DKSMan

    WTF this article is full of major inaccuracies. They weren’t parked on the side of the road. They were in the middle of a major street right in front of an intersection. They didn’t pull over and go to sleep. All you have to do is loom at the crime scene photos and see this article is full of false information. They had a gun on them as well.

    • Catherine Durnford-Wang

      So? For that they deserve to be shot? And they had a gun? So what, again? Aren’t guns allowed under the second amendment?

  • Zatanique

    How does a sleeping couple put anybody into a state of fear for their lives? I smell a cover up of monumental proportions by the cops involved. I can’t believe that they could possibly find a plausible reason to justify opening fire on these two people. Not only do I want to see a Special Grand Jury called to deal with these cops, police department and city. I want to see a wrongful death suit brought against them, the police department and the city. Because of these cops 7 children are without their parents. No amount of money is going to make that better or make up for what they did.

    On what planet could you possibly justify what happened?

  • SMH for real

    I cannot even grasp this! If they were not conscious why didn’t they try to make sure they were not suffering from Co2 poisoning. Oh no lets just shoot them and make up any story we like. Huh????

  • David Sbraga

    If you only had the courage to say that to someone face, and not while 6th were hiding behind a Kevlar and screen. I’d pray for you, but I don’t believe in prayer, and I don’t believe it would do you any good.

  • Mark Nasia

    parents on a date, were asleep in their car? does this headline make sense, I mean, two people shot while sleeping in their car makes more sense, that date would have happened before they decided to sleep, where are the editors these days

  • Jevez Robinson

  • Paul Myers

    Surely the same laws should be used and Policemen and the hiring officials as is used against gangs and organised crime. Lets face it the police force is the biggest organisation of organised criminals in the world!!!

  • Blacks, Latinos, Asians, and Progressives must compete and vie for every civil service job. Once on, rise in rank and change The system.

  • Genevieve Friday King

    Two exhausted parents falling asleep in a car in and of itself, not news. Hell, I’ve been at work and college and found parents zonked out from exhaustion from parenting…..but to be executed like this???? uh, were the cops afraid the parents would wake up and ground them for a week? or a stern talking to?

  • Johndca Marible

    These cops need to stop it. So we’re suppose to believe that this woman and this man with 7 children between them are in a car that late at night just waiting to threaten cops with a gun. We’re REALLY suppose to believe that story? I don’t understand how cops can be so afraid when they have a license to carry a gun, training on top of that, a partner, and access to call for backup. I just don’t get it. If you’re that afraid of a Black person on sight, then you don’t need to be a police officer. You need to seek help. Last time I checked, it was Black people getting killed by the police and not the other way around. Yeah, the cops have a handful of tragedies but it cannot compare to the numbers when you talk about deaths of Blacks by police. Not by a longshot. I’m getting really tired of this and the whole USA needs to revamp its law enforcement system. You can give guns to cops who are suppose to protect and serve but where is the protection for the rest of us?

  • Jeff Putterman

    Fuck the pigs.

  • Jen Adamo

    This doesn’t make ANY sense!
    Why has this not been on any news i’ve seen?

  • Scott Generale

    Here is another reason along with thousands more, why people fight back against cops, this bullshit they will never stop. shoot first in order to survive at all cost..

  • James Doolan

    many errors in this, please correct it. one victim is Kisha and then you quote her twin Kisha, when in fact the twin’s name is Trisha.

    “Michael’s twin sister Kisha stated the obvious when she said that it’s possible that Kisha merely passed out on the way home from their night out.”

    • Matt Anant

      Thanks for pointing that out James.

  • Isa Contant

    NO..YOU ALL HAVE TO JOIN A COMMUNITY,OR MAKE ONE….NOTHING U SAY ..ALONE.. WILL MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE……AND PLEASE START TO KNOW YOUR ENEMIES…..

  • Jose Granillo

    How did they know if she was armed if they were asleep? I hope this story doesn’t turn out to be a lie on the part of the reporter. That would be a shame

  • Jhiggz Kharique Merritt

    I blame who called the pigs

  • Jim Cole

    Another planned attack by the KKK. It’s always starts out with “police responded to a call” just one call at 3:10am, about a sleeping car
    that early? no one called anyone, the cops were already following them. These cops would had stopped them before they reach home regardless, they got lucky when they took a nap “the perfect” opportunity to kill and they probably put KKK hoods on too, to do the honors.

  • Nicole Rogers-Childress

    Absolutely Ridiculous!!! Every single one of the officers need to be charged with 1st Degree Murder !!! HOW CAN WE CONTINUE TO LET THIS CRAP HAPPEN… Killed while SLEEPING 😡😡😡😡😡😡 !

  • Daniel Paden

    It says that officers retreated and attempted to de-eat the situation; what exactly is it about a sleeping couple that needs to be de-escalated? The only escalation here seems to be with the police on site.

  • Estella Cohen

    Are cops now saying they are afraid of sleeping Black people……. with guns? SMH

  • Nancy Davis

    LAPD is out of control. These officer’s should be held accountable.

    i am here to appreciate the good work of this site for helping to locate my helper who is Dr Ekaka. I have been having misunderstanding with my husband which leads to divorce some few years ago, But i was unable to move on with my life because i have so much love for my husband and my kid love him too. I heard about [email protected] here some few Weeks ago and i decided to contact him for help and he told me what i need to do which i did i was so surprised when i got a call from my husband apologizing to me as told me he was going to come back to me it all seems like a dream to me thank to Dr Ekaka i am back with my husband again and i am so happy

  • eproman14

    That is literally the most ignorant quote I have ever read, aside from everything that comes out of Donald’s Trump’s mouth. The officers involved should be charged with murder and brought to justice. The mayor should resign, or defend the couple, not the police.
