The cops shoot the innocent teenager in the back, then pull the bullets and say ‘by hand’.

 A 17-year-old boy, Jamaine Barnes was reportedly asleep in a very car after a video shoot along with his older cousin only to be awakened by police who would shoot him within the back moments later. in step with a lawsuit filed this month, after shooting the boy, officers pulled the bullets out of his back by hand before dumping him off at the juvenile jail.

As Mercury News reports, in keeping with the lawsuit, the Stockton teen spent the evening along with his older cousin, earlier driving to a music video shoot in Oakland. the teenager then fell asleep and awoke within the car alone and in an unfamiliar automobile parking space, to the sounds of loud noises. He tried to call his cousin but his mobile phone was dead, so he arrived at the driver’s seat and tried to depart, the suit said.

Leaving, for the young man, proved to be a near-deadly mistake. As he pulled away, police claimed he was head toward them so that they “feared for his or her lives” and opened fire on you man.
The family’s attorney, Adante Pointer said his client saw police had stopped another vehicle but failed to hear any commands to prevent it, so he drove off. Next, he heard gunshots.

After the teenager had been shot within the back and crashed his car, Pointer said he hid within the bushes out of fear.

According to the Hayward police, they were called to a CVS pharmacy within the area that night over reports of looting and possible gunfire. once they were detaining another car within the parking zonethat's when Jamaine decided that it'd be a decent idea to urge out of there as he had not been involved in the looting or shooting.

However, Officer Samuel Tomlinson, who was standing outside his police car, claimed the teenager drove directly toward him. Despite not being hit by the car, Tomlinson opened fire after it had passed him, shooting the teenager within the back, consistent with the lawsuit. Officer Stephen Akacsos also fired his weapon believing “his partner had either been shot or struck by the vehicle,” per police.

Tomlinson was never hit. The teen, however, suffered gunshot wounds to his back.

When the officers found the teenager hiding within the bushes, they arrested him. consistent with the lawsuit, however, before dumping him off at the juvenile detention facility, cops pulled the bullets from the young man’s back with their hands.

“It’s barbaric,” Pointer said, “the way within which they tried to reduce the harm they caused this young man.” The officers “took the bullets out and hauled him off to Juvenile Hall. It’s completely inappropriate and fortunately, it didn’t cause more severe damage to him.”

The teen was charged with assault on an official. However, in keeping with Pointer, the court lacked sufficient proof of assault in order that charge was later dropped.

“Hayward police have consistently been on my radar, a local department where they sic dogs on people, beat people, shoot people and it rarely catches the public’s attention,” Pointer said. “This is Exhibit A of a local department which seeks to vilify the victim and justify the shooting. the general public should be very concerned.”

The teenager’s mother, Jael Barnes, told Mercury News her son has not been in trouble with the law before and “was not involved in looting or anything in and of itself.”

“I want all they saw was a black face and just believed he did (a crime),” she said. “Not only does he now have these physical wounds, but he also has these mental wounds, as well, which can never getaway.”

At the time of the shooting in June, Barnes’ son was the person shot by Hayward police in but period.
