Donta Allen - Dead Man Walking
But Allen wants to set something straight.
“All I did was go straight to the station, but I heard a little banging like he was banging his head,” he said.
He tells WJZ he’s angry about an internal police report published in The Washington Post.
“And they trying to make it seem like I told them that, I made it like Freddie Gray did that to hisself (sic),” Allen said. “Why the [expletive] would he do that to hisself (sic)?”
Allen was in the van because he allegedly stole a cigarette from a store on North Avenue.
He was never charged. Instead he was brought straight to the station.
“I talked to homicide. I told homicide the same story.” Allen said.
A story he says is being distorted and now he fears being killed.
“I had two options today right, either come and talk to y’all and get my credibility straight with ya’ll and not get killed by these [expletive] or not tell a true story,” Allen added. “The only reason I’m doing this is because they put my name in a bad state.” - [Emphasis mine - K]
No charges. I think I mentioned something along those lines would happen.
Now I will make what I think is a very safe bet - this guy will be dead sooner than later.
Either the 'hood will kill him for helping LEO, or LEO will find a way to make him ghost so that the story in the police report is what will remain in the legal record, should this ever make it to trial.
Dead. Overdose, maybe. Jaywalking in front of a bus. Falling on a knife a dozen times.
How doesn't much matter.
Here's the full piece.
