Jeffrey Parker

CASE №00220
NAME: Jeffrey Parker
COUNTRY: USA
RIGHTS VIOLATION: Police arbitrariness
YEAR: 2022
CASE INFORMATION:

Jeffrey Parker, 49, was shot and killed by a police officer in Huntsville, Alabama.

In April 2018, Parker called police and said he was suicidal. When police officers arrived, they found Parker sitting on the couch and put a gun to his own head. One of police officers claims she was talking to Parker when Officer William Darby entered the house and ordered Parker to drop his gun. Seconds later, Darby shot Parker dead.

Parker’s family filed a lawsuit against the city and the officer who shot him. In August 2021, Darby was sentenced to 25 years in prison. In February 2022, the officer’s lawyer filed an appeal against the court’s decision, alleging that the officer acted in self-defense and that the trial was conducted in violation of procedure.

MASS MEDIA ABOUT THE CASE:

“Jeff was a very smart guy, almost a Renaissance man. He loved music. He could fix almost anything you asked him to do. He just asked for help. He wanted help and he ended up in a situation where he asked for help and it ended up terribly,” Parker’s friend Bill Parks said.
