Teen Dies Speeding Away From Police In Stolen Car and Her Mother Says Police ‘Killed My Baby’

Seriously? Let me get this straight… your child steals a car and goes for a joyride with two other juvenile delinquents, at high speed, I might add. A cop stops them — then they take off and he does not give chase. Your little Einstein proceeds to swerve around a corner and smash into a tree and departs this life. Another child is in ICU and another is in jail. I hate to sound insensitive, but how the hell is that the officer’s fault?

From Mississippi News Now:

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) – What started out as a peaceful candlelight vigil, turned into an emotional scene on Monday night.

The mother of a 15-year-old killed this weekend while riding in a stolen car is blaming the police for her daughter’s death. But Jackson police say they are not at fault.

Keisha Redmond, Keonna’s mother says her daughter didn’t have to die.

“They killed my baby. Someone else’s baby is on life support and another person in jail damn near for the rest of their life because of a $12,000 car and a joy ride,” Redmond tells us.

Jackson police say Keonna and two other teens were speeding down Raymond Road in the early hours of Saturday morning. An officer clocked the vehicle and made the stop.

Police say the officer pulled the vehicle over and once he got out of his car and started walking toward the vehicle, the driver of the car took off.

Chief Lee Vance says the officer never gave chase because the driver turned down a side street and then slammed into a tree.

But Keisha Redmond isn’t buying it and is still searching for answers.

“This about a high speed chase. It was three kids in that car that night, 14 and two 15 year olds. My baby is dead and another child in ICU and another baby about to do life in jail. All because a police officer took the initiative to chase them children. For one stolen car.”

You have got to be kidding me. The one in jail deserves to be there. She sounds like the cop should have just let them take the stolen car. No one killed her baby – her baby did that all by herself. I’m just glad she didn’t take any innocent bystanders with her. It’s a tragedy when someone dies and when someone gets critically hurt — but you can’t save those from offing themselves when they are criminally stupid. The cop did his job and it is outrageous to accuse him of killing your daughter. Enough said.
