This Guy Was in Jail for a Year After the Shooting


No, Not the Police Officer, the Guy Who Was Shot!

“Birmingham, AL — In May 2015, officer Daniel Aguirre was given a Combat Cross Medalafter he said in a police report that he successfully fended off a struggle in which he and his partner were in danger. However, someone on the inside leaked Dashcam footage showing Aquirre shooting a man in the back as he lay prostrate on his hands and knees. Still, Birmingham police charged their victim, Aubrey Williams, with attempted murder.

But, last week, after spending more than a year in jail for a crime he never committed, the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office finally showed a semblance of logic and dropped the charges against Williams.

Have you ever been angry, or so filled with adrenaline that you could pull the trigger on someone who was not a threat to you?  If so, you need to turn in the badge.

The officer won a medal for this, then the award was taken away.

    What did the officer kick away after he shot? It is possible as he turned the guy over, there was something in his hand that he thought was a gun, Even so, seemed to shoot way to soon, since from where he was, any aiming would requiring a contortionist act by the suspect.

    What really troubles me is that after he has shot the guy and cuffed him, neither officer so much as attempts any first aid.

    • The guy was on his hands and knees, hands empty, when shot. The gun kicked away may have been under him, or in his pocket, at that time; I can’t tell.

      As for first aid: I’ve watched a shit-ton of such video. First aid by cops is vanishingly rare, as far as I can tell, no matter how ill-justified any injuries they cause may be. Judging by tapes where there is audio, they seem to take their sweet-ass time calling in paramedics unless an officer is also injured.

    I see one gun already on the ground (possibly from the second suspect?) and the cop react to something when he turned the guy over. Hard to tell what was going on.

  3. There was at least one gun. The argument might be that we can’t see the gun pointed at the officer. The gun and hand are hidden by the bag in the video. Looking at the suspect on the ground, it sure seems unlikely he was able to aim. Always, I could be wrong.

    I found it strange that the gun started moving at the 1:46 mark. No evidence that it was windy.???

    If you read the citation, the suspect definitely did not aim at the officer .

  6. That’s a dropped taser whose wire snagged on another individual walking toward us.

    Should be more careful about awarding metals until all the facts are known… if if the facts happen to be known and they’re bad, obviously avoid it. I’m sure Walter Duranty would agree.
