Las Vegas, NV — Isaiah Williams, 19, had big plans. He had just graduated high school and was planning a life of government service, just like his mother. Unfortunately, however, that life will never come as it was prematurely ended by cops serving a no-knock warrant in the middle of the night. Williams was not the target of the warrant, yet he was executed on a sofa where he slept.
After police executed Williams in his own home, a report from a local CBS affiliate read as follows, “Police said the shooter, 19-year-old Isaiah Tyree Williams, opened fire when officers broke a window and entered the apartment near Nellis Boulevard and Vegas Valley Drive at about 5 a.m. on Monday.”
But the question is this: does defending your home from armed intruders make you a “shooter”?
Williams mother, Latia Alexander says “no,” along with many others who have since taken to protesting Williams’ execution.
“It’s been really hard, some days I have really really bad days and some days I have okay days, a lot of breaking down and crying,” Alexander told KVVU.
“Isaiah was a very loving boy… He loved to cook… He loved to build things, he just graduated from high school,” Alexander added.
Had Williams been accused or suspected of a crime, perhaps police may have been more justified in their actions. However, he was not. Williams was not the person police were looking for and thanks to their brutal incompetence, two cops are recovering from bullet wounds and Alexander lost her only child.
