Cop-Killer’s Family Blames The Police For Officer’s Death: ‘HE SHOULD HAVE STAYED IN HIS SQUAD CAR’ [VIDEO]
Major Davis, Jr was brandishing a semi-automatic rifle Saturday night in Indianapolis, which led to a 911 call that dispatched police. The officer involved was killed but the cop-killer’s family insists it the fallen officers own fault.
When IMPD Officer Perry Renn found Davis at 34th Street and Forest Manor Avenue, Davis opened fire on Officer Renn. Davis was critically wounded in the gunfight, but survived. Officer Renn died of wounds sustained in the firefight. Davis now faces a charge of murder. It’s probably a shock to no one that Davis’s family is blaming the police for his actions:
“He wasn’t a bad person. His father was killed by IMPD. That is enough to hurt a person and scar him for life,” said Moornan.
“I imagine he figured they were going to try and kill him. I mean cause look what they did to his father,” said Moornan.
“Next thing, I just heard shots and everybody running in the house and everybody hit the floor,” said Yvonne Moornan, Davis Jr.’s aunt. By the time they got outside, they realized those shots were Davis Jr. and Officer Renn shooting at each other. Davis had an assault rifle.
“Major is not a bad person in spite of what happened. Things happen,” said Pam Moornan.
Now, the Davis family is worried about their son’s reputation and again, questioning police tactics.
“It’s horrible about what took place, but, I mean, I don’t think it’s fair though for them to keep dragging him through the mud,” said Moornan.
The family did say it is sorry for Officer Renn’s family, but they said the tragedy may have been avoided if Officer Renn would’ve stayed at his car since he could see Davis had a gun.
It probably won’t surprise anyone that Davis, Jr. had multiple arrests on drug charges dating back to 2006.
I’m at a loss to explain a mindset that seems to have an unswerving ability to justify any and all criminal activity from their family members, while finding a way to blame authorities who are simply attempting to keep the peace.
Our deepest condolences to the family of Officer Renn.
Officer Renn is the brave hero in this story. I wonder how many lives he saved when stopping this intoxicated man with a criminal record from brandishing his assault rifle in the neighborhood. One or two accidental deaths of children were possibly prevented by this brave Police Officers actions.
