Civil Rights Attorneys Ben Crump And Antonio M. Romanucci Issue Statement On Firing Of Waukegan Police Officer Who Shot A Young Black Couple, Killing One And Seriously Injuring Another

Posted on: October 24th, 2020 by Romanucci & Blandin

CHICAGO (October 23, 2020)—Romanucci & Blandin, LLC and Ben Crump Law have statement below from Attorneys Ben Crump and Antonio Romanucci, who represent 20-year-old Tafara Williams, who was shot and seriously injured by a police officer in Waukegan, Illinois this week, in an incident that also killed her boyfriend, 19-year-old Marcellis Stinnette.

“The firing of the officer involved in this week’s tragic and senseless shooting in Waukegan is a first step in police accountability, but does nothing to restore the life and health of the two young people involved. We will press forward with our own investigation into the facts of this tragedy. It is apparent that the relative speed of the decision in the Waukegan case is the direct result of police reforms created by the Taylor and Floyd and Blake and Prude and Williams cases nationwide, as the cry for systemic change is heard loudly across the country.”

Attorneys Ben Crump and Antonio M. Romanucci together also represent the families of George Floyd, Daniel Prude, Byron Williams and other victims of excessive police force around the country.
