VIDEO – White Decatur Cop, Cleared Of Wrong Doing For Shooting Black Man

Remember our story

ILLINOIS STATE POLICE IDENTIFY MAN SHOT BY DECATUR POLICE THIS MORNING

Macon County State’s Attorney Jay Scott determined the officer broke no laws, and can return to work immediately.

Last month, Officer Andrew Wittmer shot Lonnie Mitchell, who was hospitalized for a gunshot wound and continues to recover.

Take a look below at the dash cam video!

Above is the gun & knife found on the victim.

“Pursuant to Illinois state statute, a law enforcement officer is justified in the use of force likely to result in death or great bodily harm when he reasonably believes such force is necessary to prevent death or great bodily harm to himself or another,” Macon County State’s Attorney Jay Scott said.

“After a careful review of reports and materials generated by the Illinois State Police investigation, it is the conclusion of the Macon County State’s Attorney’s Office that officer Wittmer reasonably believed that the force he used was necessary to prevent death or great bodily harm to himself or another when he discharged his service weapon at Lonnie Mitchell.” Macon County State’s Attorney Jay Scott said.

Macon County State’s Attorney Jay Scot displayed pictures of Mitchell taken from Facebook that showed him posing, gangster-style, with a knife strapped to his wrist and what look like handguns tucked into the waistband of his pants, pretty much as he appeared when police confronted him in the street.

  1. So why make this a black / white thing. It’s a thug with what looks like a real gun and a knife and gets shot by a cop doing his job. Your just another racist “journalist” and I’m using that word loosely.

    dumbfuck posts pics of himself with that gun playing “gangsta” on FB.. he’s lucky the cops didnt just light him up as soon as they saw his ass. note to idiots: posting pics of yourself involved in ANY criminal activity is fucking stupid. you know that shit will be presented by the prosecution, right? dumbasses.

  3. Good thing it was justifiable because you can clearly see it was. The officer did nothing wrong. This is not a racist post it’s just to show people that not all cops are wrong in doing their jobs. The race wars need to stop is what it looks like this site was getting at

  4. Why is this even on this site…. This happened in Decatur not Springfield plus this is my ex brother in law and this really don’t need to be anyone else’s business
