    Black Marine veteran, 68, shot dead by police

    Black Marine veteran, 68, shot dead by police after wearable medical alert gadget went off in error



    The Trayvon Martin story remains in national headlines this week, but little media attention has been paid to a similarly troubling case: that of Kenneth Chamberlain, Sr., a 68-year-old Marine vet killed in his home last November by police officers in White Plains, NY.

    The officers were responding to a false alarm accidentally triggered by Chamberlain's medical alert pendant while he slept. Instead of helping the man, who had a heart condition, they broke down his front door, tasered him, reportedly called him the "n-word" and mocked him, then shot him dead.

    Audio throughout the incident was recorded by his medical alert device.

    Democracy Now has an extensive segment on the case, including an interview with the deceased man's son, Kenneth Chamberlain Jr. The New York Times ran a story on the case a few weeks ago.

    The police department has so far refused to release the name of the officer who killed the elderly man:

    ďIn the other incidents that you have out here of questionable shootings, the officers' names were given out. So it only makes my family and I wonder why isnít this officerís name released?Ē said Chamberlain Jr. ďHad that been myself or any other citizen inside here that shot and killed someone, our whole life history would be on television, on the radio and in the newspaper. I feel that itís only right, itís only fair that that officerís name be released.Ē

    The officer is believed to currently be on duty, still working for the White Plains police. After public outcry, local protests, and an online campaign for case review, the local DA this week promised that a grand jury will hear the case. The family intends to sue.

    They have no reason to do that. Who holds them accountable?! People does talk all they shit bout Al and Jesse and them, but if not for them raising a stink and creating a media circus what attention would these issues get? You think the DA really going to present this case as it should to a grand jury? Bet if Al was on it the name would have been released by now and more public officials would speak up!

    Typical rightwinger. No matter the topic they'll always find a way to make it political. It could be a discussion about why the sky is blue and they'll throw in something like "oh because Obamacare wants to take our tax dollars and drive up the greenhouse effect making the sky bluer" or some asinine crap like that.

    Anyways, my condelences to the Chamberlain family. I hope the facts do come to light and justice is served. As a servicemember, and a Westchester County resident, this case hits very close to home. I'll hold my judgement till the facts are revealed. But if what the Chamberlain family says is in fact true, its outrageous that this kind of thing can even be attempted to be swept under the rug. Its clear that there is rampant injustice within the ranks of law enforcement.

    In a perfect world WE should be upset knowing all the facts in a case and not react based on what the media is pushing this week. AS you know there are some islandmix members who donít care and will talk shit, my beef with them is why you donít get angry for every case except for the ones FB and the media promote.

    I have no horse in this race but the main thing that keeps coming to mind is, unless a story gets media coverage in some way shape or form, how would anyone know that it has happened enough to even be upset or outraged over some injustice? Cant react to what you dont know or hear about whether you are spoon fed the information or not.

    now if u want to talk about the media manipulating what ppl read and hear about that is another matter.
    If the media are responsible for the dissemination of information that is incorrect, then where should people get their sources for any story out there, good or bad?

    So how do you expect me in Orlando to know what's going on in White Plains if there isn't any media coverage?
