Darren Green

CASE №00093
NAME: Darren Green
COUNTRY: USA
RIGHTS VIOLATION: Police arbitrariness
YEAR: 2021
CASE INFORMATION:

Darren Green Jr., 30, was shot and killed by a police officer in Harvey, Illinois. On October 7, 2021, police pulled a woman over for not having her lights on. Green was in the front passenger seat, with a woman and a young girl was in the backseat.

In dashcam video of the incident, the trooper is seen and heard telling the female driver to step out of the SUV and instructs his partner to help Green out. The same trooper on the left side of the video then opens the driver’s side door and spots a gun.

What happens next inside appears on video. State police said there was a struggle over the gun, and Green began driving the car and crashing into a bus stop – after which point a shot went off and the bullet hitting Green in the head. He was killed. The woman and child in the back seat were uninjured.

The officer who shot Green was sent on administrative leave. In May 2021 Green’s family has called for murder charges against one of the Illinois State Police troopers involved in the incident.
