A video showing an Illinois cop deliberately ramming into the car of a 17-year-old girl in a high school parking lot contradicts the initial police narrative that the girl pulled in front of the cop.
The video shows Centralia police officer William White accelerating his patrol SUV before t-boning her car, leaving her with a broken collarbone.
Judging by the video, the deputy had probable cause the person in the white car was only seconds away from committing a mass murder at the high school.
That is, if you believe the cop was acting by the book.
The incident took place on November 7 after a note was found inside Centralia High School alleging that a bomb was inside the school, according to the Facebook page, The People of Centralia Illinois.
And that led to the Einstein idea of locking the school down, ensuring every student was kept as close to the alleged bomb as possible.
The note was determined not to be credible, Centralia police told WJBD Radio back in November so maybe that's why they didn't evacuate the school.
But then why ram the unsuspecting girl who was returning from an appointment and had no idea about the events unfolding at her school?
The Marion County Sheriff's Office claimed the following last November about the crash in the above video.
Marion County Sheriff’s Deputies say Centralia Officer William White was watching the perimeter of the school when he saw a car entering the parking lot at a high rate of speed. He followed the car in the neighboring driving lane in the parking lot. The car then made a turn and drove in front of the lane where the squad car was traveling resulting in the crash.Deputies say the juvenile girl was taken to SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital for treatment. She reportedly was returning to school from an internship off campus when the crash occurred.Deputies say no tickets were issued since the crash was on private property.
Of all the lame excuses not to give tickets, this is one of the lamest. First of all, the school is not private property. And second of all, what difference would it make in an incident like this?
The real reason is that a deputy is not going to cite a cop. Simple as that. No need to bullshit us with lame excuses.
Had the girl rammed her car into the cop's car, she would be facing attempted murder charges.
A 15-year-old boy was arrested for making terrorist threats. He was released to his parents and was suspended for ten days.
