    Why is it that very time a lawbreaking menace gets killed it’s always the cops fault?

    Darrin Hanna’s mother, blasting out murder when that’s just not true.

    Imagine police called they have a pregnant woman and an out of control Black guy in a dark apartment. Police aren’t going to back down so Black man better come out and surrender. If I’m a cop going into that situation and run into a combative suspect black or white, mexican it don’t matter. I’m going to do all I can to make sure I bring this guy down and that I come out alive and he is no longer a threat to the pregnant girl and her sister. At this point I’m not real worried about the pregnant woman beaters safety either, if he don’t comply, it’s dark, he don’t want to come out he’s going down before me or any of my fellow officers and I can just imagine all of the officers there were feeling something like this.

    Darrin was not murdered he brought this unfortunate instance upon himself. Stop blaming the police officers here’s the story.

    He had an arrest record, mostly (I wonder what they are hiding behind this word) for retail theft, he was going through drug problems according to family

    Hanna was arrested Nov. 6 by North Chicago police after the sister of his 21-year-old pregnant girlfriend called police because the couple was fighting at his apartment in the 1700 block of Park Avenue and she heard Hanna threaten her sister. Police said officers entered the dark apartment and they had to physically restrain Hanna when he was injured and then taken to the hospital. He died at Vista East Medical Center, Waukegan, on Nov. 13.

    Complements of

    Now Darrin’s mother can’t see the menace that her son truly had become He was a drug using, thief (mostly retail but maybe a few cars I don’t know) woman beating thug. Darrin studied a little bit of criminal justice and still chose the way of life that brought about his untimely demise.

    Now Darrin‘s mother, in her blind love for Darrin, is trying to ruin the lives of the fine, upstanding , brave men in uniform, that were just doing there civic duty, These police officers had no idea what they were going to encounter in that dark apartment and when they did meet up with Darrin, obviously he didn’t give up peacefully they had to subdue a combatant, angry, black man in the dark.

    Darrin may have played some basket ball, and believed in Jesus when he was little but he left all that behind and chose a of life of crime that gave him a criminal record and he was still actively being a criminal at the time of his death. He was well educated on right from wrong even his mother taught him that. Now she is angry and lashing out. Those police officers didn’t wake up in the morning and say hey lets go murder Darrin Hanna today, they were sent there summoned by the violent actions of Darrin, a known criminal and now a mad, pregnant woman beating, thug.
