BEAVERCREEK

The U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio has asked the FBI to investigate the Beavercreek police officer-involved Walmart shooting death of John Crawford III, according to the Dayton Unit of the NAACP.
Dayton Unit NAACP President Derrick Foward said in a press release Tuesday that U.S. Attorney Carter Stewart will wait for the results of the FBI investigation before deciding whether to launch a civil rights investigation into the matter.
A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office did not immediately return a message seeking confirmation.

Foward also said that Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine has promised to provide Walmart surveillance video to the NAACP, but did not say when the NAACP would get the recordings.

The NAACP has launched its own investigation into the shooting death of Crawford.
Beavercreek police shot and killed Crawford on Aug. 5 inside a Walmart store after receiving a 911 call about a man in the store with a weapon.
He was carrying an air rifle/pellet gun that he had picked off a shelf from inside the store.
A woman who was fleeing the store with her daughter after gunshots were fired suffered a medical condition and died that night.

1. Oh good, I just did not know how that happened - he had time to say it was a toy gun,

so they should have had time to not shoot him and wasn't shooting someone supposed to be the last resort, getting them to not attack is the first part.

3. DeWine needs to release that Walmart video...

Five 911 calls total, only one before Crawford was gunned down by Beavercreek police. Crawford's father was on Joy Reid, saying his son remained in one spot, talking on the phone while everything was going on around him. I bet a few of those 200 Walmart cameras will show a couple of 'concerned citizens' inciting a panic.

4. I believe the ex marine, he who is another George Zimmerman type, he made the 911 call.

He is the catalyst of chaos.....He profiled John Crawford...made delusional claims to 911....

6. Beaver creek most definitely fell for the terror scenario.

The tapes will be revealing. Mike DeWine appeared a bit nervous... Not wanting to have his own Ferguson in Greene County.
