Lest We Forget

Pamela Turner1975-2019

Police officer Juan Delacruz stopped Pamela Turner in front of her apartment complex on 13 May 2019 claiming that she had an open warrant (which, according to this article, is not true). When Mrs. Turner resisted the arrest officer Delacruz used his Taser. During a physical struggle Pamela Turner got hold of the Taser. At that point Delacruz shot her five times.

He justified killing Pamela Turner by saying he feared for his life. Although he knew that the Taser could not be fired a second time.

Juan Delacruz was initially put on paid leave and has since returned to the police force.
