Wallace Wilder

CASE №00186
NAME: Wallace Wilder
COUNTRY: USA
RIGHTS VIOLATION: Police arbitrariness
YEAR: 2021
CASE INFORMATION:

Wallace Wilder, 62, was shot and killed in his appartement by Pickens County Sheriff’s deputies in August 2019.

Deputies were responding a call about noises coming from Wilder’s apartment. He had mental health issues and police were aware of it. His family said he was alone at home that day and he was unarmed. Wilder gave his firearm to his brother for safekeeping weeks before the shooting.

Police gave the results of the investigation to the Alabama attorney general’s office, but no charges were filed. In April 2021, Wilder’s family filed a federal lawsuit which claims that deputies unlawfully broke into his home and killed him for no reason. In July 2021, Wilder’s relatives released a video of the incident.

MASS MEDIA ABOUT THE CASE:

“No one is above the law. No one has the right to break into your home, under any circumstances, no matter what title they hold within a community, and kill you. And that is exactly what happened to Wallace,” Wilder’s niece said.

“The hardest part is no accountability for me. How can law enforcement be so inhumane?” Wilder’s niece said.
