Description

"Say Their Name" focuses on the assault and killing of unarmed Black people by police and in ‘Stand Your Ground’ states, highlighting incidents throughout the United States.


Serving as a memorialization for these individuals, we learn about who these people were through the words of the people that knew them best, while also helping us understand what these situations do to their families and communities not only in the immediate aftermath, but also what happens when the news-cycle moves on and the social media attention shifts focus. 


We offer solutions, spread awareness and support these families & communities, including a crowdfunding campaign throughout the series to directly benefit the families impacted by these incidents (they receive 100% of those proceeds), so that we can make an immediate tangible difference.

CHIME #1 (skip ahead 2 mins 3 seconds)

He hesitated. He said, “Mr. Crawford, are you sure you want to?” I said, “Absolutely sure. I said, I’m giving you instruction, sir. Just don’t touch the body. He said, I got you. That’s fine. You want me to leave his body in the body bag, and just leave it in the morgue?” I said, ”Yes, and I will be there in the morning to view the body myself. I left that morning, took a trip right up the street there. He led me to the morgue, and he pointed to me, he said, “He’s right over there. I walk up to the gurney. He was on the slab then, and I unzipped the body bag. It was the most horrific thing I’ve ever seen, I wanted to. He said, “You okay?” I said, “Yeah, I’m okay.” I took my son’s, laid the body bag over. First thing I did was I took his arms out. I wanted to see for myself without the coroner's report. How many holes did he have in his body? I could see where his radius and all layers in one arm where the shot. Where it went through and exit and it broke it obviously. And then I lifted up his right arm and I could clearly see the enter and exit wounds. That one bullet, went through two arms, so I could see it. Then I looked and I could see where his upper torso, it was kind of coming at a slant that other one. He must have moved when that second one came in him, It was around the kidney on one end and up through the liver on the other end, so I could see both of those


CHIME# 2 (skip ahead 2 mins 20 seconds)

The police narrative was that John Crawford walked into Walmart. He was walking through the store. He picked up a BB gun that was sitting on the shelf. As he's walking through the store, there was a 911 caller that made the call that they believed that John was, or they gave the narrative that John was pointing what they believed to be a real rifle at patrons in the store. That 911 call was with a dispatcher. The dispatcher called the police officer. The police officer came to the store. He walked through the store. What he's indicated is that he saw John. He gave John multiple commands to put down the, what he believed to be a real firearm. John did not obey the commands. John, turned towards him in an aggressive manner with the gun pointing at the officer, and that's why the officer had to shoot and kill John. They said he was pointing the gun at people. And in the store at kids, And then he was standing facing the shelving in Walmart and talking on the phone and they shot him. People were shopping. There was a lady named... I think her name was Williams. That was with two little kids. She watched the whole thing and then she dropped dead.

CHIME #1 (skip ahead 2 minutes 25 seconds)

And Darkow, the Sergeant, actually saw my son first. He peeked out an aisle, he saw.

He tried to issue a cadence to him, something to the effect, “Put your gun down,” or something. My son, he’s looking at items on the shelf, talking on the phone, with the airsoft rifle down to the side. And you can hear Darkow, while he’s trying to issue the cadence, Williams just comes around him, And while he’s still trying to get my son’s attention... Williams just taking it amongst himself to just circle inside him and shoot him, 300ths of a second my son is shot at 16 feet away,

Me and Crawford and the boys was inside doing grandparent thing. 

I wasn't in there maybe 10 minutes, and LeeCee just started screaming. "Ah, Mr. John, Mr. John, they shot him, they shot him, they shot Looney." I said, "What did she just say?" "He's calling your name. He's calling, he's saying dad, dad..." I say, "Oh, shit." I jumped off the couch, ran out there. She was running towards us, "Tressa, John, Tressa." She is shaking like a leaf, man. I mean, that phone was about to hit the ground when I'd grabbed at it, Tressa grabbed at it. 

But I did get the phone from her and trying to call his name. I put him on speaker and calling his name. Of course there was no response. At the time you can clearly hear the paramedics have gotten there, and they said, "Try to stay, stay with us, stay with us sir, keep your arms, raise your arms, raise them and just try to stay with them." You can just hear the breathing and the gurgling, and the breathing. He was desperately trying to live. He said, "Just stay with us, stay us." All of a sudden, it just, there was this big, big exhale. And that was it.

CHIME #1 (Skip ahead 2 mins 5 seconds)

They said my brother could have survived. But if he would have survived, he would have been paralyzed, because when he was shot, he was shot in the abdomen and a bullet ruptured his spinal cord. So he would have been paralyzed, but he instead he died instantly, and he still treated my brother like an animal and handcuffed him, when proper procedure was to render aid. He was no threat, you shot him, he was no threat. He still didn't. So I'm just, I don't see how, after all the evidence was brought to them in a courtroom, they still found him not guilty. the people that trained him, even the chief of police even said that you're supposed to exhaust all resources before using deadly force. Nothing, nothing, and it's hurtful.

CHIME #1 (skip ahead 6 minutes 4 seconds)

And so then, I understand his wife murdered the children.

Right. Are you okay speaking about what happened there?

Mm-hmm (affirmative).

Well, from my understanding, I had actually had just got off the phone with her the day before. And I was trying to get the kids from her because he was, Danny, was calling me from jail three-way. Somebody else telling me he was concerned about his kids and that I needed to go get them, So I was calling her, trying to get them as I did before, even when he was out of jail because she wouldn't necessarily let him come get them. So he would have to go through me to go get his kids so that he could see them. So I tried calling her and getting the kids and at one point she was just like, "No." 

she didn't want the kids around me or any of my family or anything like that. And it was just kind of like, I didn't understand why. "But you're saying that you need help from his family, I'm trying to help you and give you a relief from the kids for a while, just let me help you out." She just was not feeling it at all. She was just like, "No, I hate your brother. And my kids are never going to be around your family. Don't ever call me about my kids. Don't worry about it." But at the same time she was going through mental issues, I think she was bipolar or something. So, it was kind of like, okay, maybe this is just one of them days. so I'll try the next day.

The next day became that day. And it hurt so much because it's just like, "I was just talking to her yesterday about the kids. I heard the kids in the background. Why would you do something like that? Why?" She called CPS, for CPS to come get them, the kids. And she told them, "I think I might do something. I don't think my kids are safe around me. I need someone to come get them" and stuff like that. And then they wouldn't, they didn't feel the need. They felt like there was no reason to. But you have the mom telling you, she's telling you, she's giving you a warning. Right? "If you don't take these kids something's bad's going to happen." They didn't take head to it and the next day...

I believe it was overnight when she did it, because she was with one of my cousins. They're best friends. This is what I heard from my cousin, Nina, is that they were riding in a car. She has another son from a previous relationship, older. They're riding in a car and she went to drop the oldest son off with his dad because he lived with his dad and she went home. But my cousin was telling her that she was under so much stress that even my cousin offered to take the two youngest kids and keep them for a while and she didn't let her do it. So, she dropped her off at home and then she went home.

My cousin said that she felt something bad, like you had that eerie feeling. She said that she was having that eerie feeling. And she kept calling and calling her, but she wasn't answering the phone. So she was like, "Yeah, I kept calling and she would never answer the phone." And I believe she said when she finally did answer the phone, she was saying something about, can she come get her or something like that, she needed to leave town or something. So, my cousin's kind of wondering why was she saying she needs to leave town all of a sudden...

WARNING:

CHIME # 1 (skip ahead 2 minutes 40 seconds)

Kind of almost dragged her over to the garage door and kind of threw her up against the garage door.

He threw me against the garage door. And when he did that, Robbie pushed up and. 

And I lost it. I hopped up and said, "Get your fucking hands off my mom". And he didn't say a word. 

He never said, "Stay down. Get back down." Nothing. 

He pulled his gun. And I mean it was like slow motion almost. I remember, it really was like slow motion. Because I remember seeing him draw his gun and I was like, "He's not going to shoot me. He's not going to shoot me". And then the gun went off and I was like, "He didn't shoot me. He didn't shoot me". And then I started feeling this pressure, and fell back against the front door and collapsed. It was all slow motion. 

I saw the red, the fire from the gun because he shot him right in front of me. He was standing to my left and shot across me. So I saw the fire from the gun. And then I heard Robbie say, "Oh God." And then I knew he was hit. You could see smoke coming from his chest.

For whatever reason in my little cartoon brain, I was thinking, "Well, maybe it was a rubber bullet". "That wasn't real", just in disbelief. And so I was laying on the ground and I put my hand up under my shirt and I pulled it out, and it was dripping in blood. Just covered, blood running down my forearm. And my mom said something like, "Oh my God, I can see smoke coming from his chest", or something. And the cop, real calmly said, "Ma'am, that's just the bullet tearing through the fibers of his shirt. Calm down, it's not a big deal". 

Well, I guess my knees gave out because I... My hands were still up and I slid against the garage door, down. And I said, I said, "Robbie call the name of Jesus." And I started praying. Just started praying, praying because I wanted him to hear me. I wanted him to be focused on my voice and I wanted him to pray. And I just said, "Call His name. Say His name. Call the name of Jesus." 

Like screaming, praying loudly, loud enough to where I would hear, but she started praying and they kept telling her to be quiet.

CHIME #1 (skip ahead 2 minutes)

But nonetheless, what they say is that while he was on the ground, Ringgenberg claims that his gun had shifted on his belt. Shouldn’t have been possible, but it did. And it was directly between Jamar and him. It’s on his back. And so it’s pressed into Jamar and he says, he’s trying to keep his hand on the gun and hold it in. He says he can feel Jamar’s hand around the gun. And he started screaming to Schwarze immediately, “He’s got my gun, shoot him.” Immediately and Schwarze just starts panicking and he yells at him, “Let him go. Or I’ll fire on you. Let him go” Yeah. A few times. And continually, while this is going on, Ringgenberg is, telling him to shoot Jamar. Ultimately he puts his gun to his head and he says, “I’m going to fire.” And he claims, Schwarze he claims that Jamar said, “I’m not afraid to die” It seems unusual. This is the very first words that Jamar has said to either officer at all. It’s just an unusual first statement to make. But Schwarze, he says, “that’s what he said.” And there’s no one to say it wasn’t. Schwarze he presses his gun against his head. You’re not supposed to do that. He was excited. And under stress. That puts the gun out of chamber. If somebody has an automatic weapon pointed, it’s semiautomatic, you can press on the barrel and it’s called putting the weapon out of chamber and it won’t fire. So he pulls it and he can’t do it. So, he had to pull back. He tells Ringgenberg, “Give me a second.” And he cocks the slide to reengage the weapon. And he puts it back to his head. He says, “I’m going to fire” This time he’s warning Ringgenberg. And he fires. And then at that point, they get out from under him. The press made a big deal of the fact that they found Jamar’s DNA on the weapon. And that’s pretty stupid. I mean, he was shot with an explosive weapon at point blank range. His DNA is on everything within a 20-foot radius.



CHIME #2 (skip ahead 30 seconds)

There was a young man, a 10-year-old little boy that witnessed Jamar being killed, saw the shooting. He even described the smoke that came from Jamar’s face after being killed. Usually he’ll come to the tree for the anniversary and birthday. Last year, he didn’t, so I believe his mom moved. But he makes it his business to come and give us a hug and just be there, I think about him a lot.

When he saw that she was going out into the ambulance, the police that responded to the domestic call approached Jamar, within 61 seconds, I believe, after stepping out of their car, and having interaction with Jamar, he was killed. They walked up to him, they put him in this choke hold, slammed him on the ground, and shot him in the face.


CHIME #2 (skip ahead 1 minute 40 seconds)

When my mom got there, they still wouldn’t tell us where he was. I was getting ready to go up under the tape and he stopped me. I’m like, “I’m looking for my son, his name’s Jamar. They say he just got shot. Where is he? Where is he? Where is he. And the police say, “I can’t tell you that.” By this time there’s a lot of people out there. (SOUNDS FROM THE SCENE) And she pled, my mom was near getting on her knees to ask them, "Please, tell me where my son is. Please. Why won't you?" "What do you mean?" I'm like, "That's my baby. What are you talking about? My son, he's just been shot. You got to tell me." And everybody now is getting ready to riot now. (SOUNDS FROM THE SCENE)

WARNING:

CHIME #1 (skip ahead 30 seconds)

Hey initially said they weren't about 10 to five shots fired totally. We sat down and looked at them. there were about 12 or 14 bullet holes in the car. They didn't include those that went through the window. They fired 22 shots at him


CHIME #2 (skip ahead 30 seconds)

Mrs. Elliott marched with us. Artie's father, who at the time I believe was a judge in Virginia, he marched with us. Dorothy But the day that we went there, and they were saying, "How many bullets, one, how many bullets, two, how many bullets, three." When they got on up until about six or seven, that was when I just cried my head off. And I ended up on the shoulders of Martin Luther King. We did a lot of marching; we did a lot of standing still.

CHIME #1 (skip ahead 1 minute 15 seconds)

He never gave them a problem. He didn’t curse them, he didn’t fight back, he didn’t do nothing. He just said, "I just want to go home and go to sleep." Cheney comes up, they search him and put him in the front seat of the police car. it was in June 99, 90 degrees, windows rolled up, they didn’t’ leave the air conditioner on it. So, he just sat there in that car. My son is handcuffed behind his back, with the lap seatbelt on, the seatbelt across his shoulder. And one of them hollered and I think it was Cheney, "Gun. I see a gun." The windows were tinted, and they are standing closer than we are and one of them allegedly see a gun and they shot him 14 times at point blank range.

Coming October 12th
00:01:57

"Say Their Name" focuses on the assault and killing of unarmed Black people by police and in ‘Stand Your Ground’ states, highlighting incidents throughout the United States.


Serving as a memorialization for these individuals, we learn about who these people were through the words of the people that knew them best, while also helping us understand what these situations do to their families and communities not only in the immediate aftermath, but also what happens when the news-cycle moves on and the social media attention shifts focus. 


We offer solutions, spread awareness and support these families & communities, including a crowdfunding campaign throughout the series to directly benefit the families impacted by these incidents (they receive 100% of those proceeds), so that we can make an immediate tangible difference.
