Jeanetta Riley, a pregnant homeless mother of three who suffered from emotional difficulties, was killed by police as she waved a knife outside a hospital in Sandpoint, Idaho. Seconds after their arrival, two police officers opened fire. Police say she refused their commands. Her death was ruled justifiable. Jeanetta’s family has not, so far, received even an apology. This case shows that no one is immune from police violence today. Is this the kind of society we want?

  1. surely there was a way that the police could have handled this without killing this lady way to go to the cop that shot her you must be real proud of yourself

  2. I knew Jeanetta, she was my bunkie long ago, she had a good heart and did not deserve to go out like this. I pray that her family still get the justice they deserve. Shortly after Jeanetta was shot down by Sandpoint police, a dog in Couer d’Alene was also shot by police. The dogs owner has received $80,000 in compensation, while Jeanetta’s family has yet to receive so much as an apology. What a wild and unjust world we live in.
