Ezell Ford was murdered by LAPD for being in the wrong place at the wrong time and the system has the audacity to call this "justice."

According to the report, two doctors consulted for gunshot wound appearance concurred that the wound in Ford’s back had a muzzle imprint, indicating the shot was fired at close range.

Los Angeles, CA — 25-year-old Ezell Ford was shot and killed by police on the night of August 11th in South Los Angeles.  Ford was stopped by police around 8:20 p.m, because there was a shooting in the area and he just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. He had committed no crime.

According to a statement made by the LAPD, during the course of the stop “a struggle ensued” and police opened fire.  Ford was critically injured and was taken to a local hospital where he later died.

Ford’s afamily claimed he was laying on the ground and complying with officers when they killed him, a claim that could possibly be substantiated through an autopsy.

However, shortly after the killing, the LAPD placed an “investigative hold” on the report detailing Ezell Ford’s cause of death in order to “preserve the integrity of witness testimony.”

The Autopsy report was held back for months as the LAPD received heavy backlash from those demanding justice for Ezell Ford.

“The blocking of the autopsy report of Ford comes on the heels of the release of the autopsy report on Michael Brown which contradicted the police version of how Brown was killed,” the roundtable’s Earl Ofari Hutchinson said. “The blocking of the release Ford autopsy report further fuels suspicions about the LAPD’s version of the Ford killing.”

In December, the autopsy report was finally released and it backed up witness statements of Ford being shot in the back as he lay on the ground.

According to the report, two doctors consulted for gunshot wound appearance concurred that the wound in Ford’s back had a muzzle imprint, indicating the shot was fired at close range.

The report ruled Ford’s death a homicide.

This week, the LAPD, in the course of their internal investigation, determined that police were justified as they shot this mentally ill man in the back for no reason.

Ford was shot at point blank range, with a gun pressed to his back. He had committed no crime, his life was stolen by police, and the state has the audacity to call this “justice.”
