    Father Of Boy Shot By Police Demands Answers

    Wants To Know If Race Was A Factor In Shooting


    Katie McCall
    Reporting

    (CBS) CHICAGO A father was demanding answers from the Chicago Police Board on Thursday, and joining a protest against Chicago police.

    It comes the week after a confrontation at the Cabrini Green complex where his 14-year-old son, armed with a BB gun, was shot by officers.

    CBS 2’s Katie McCall reports that tension has grown considerably since that incident, as Cabrini Green residents say the shooting is just more evidence of police brutality in their neighborhood.

    Ten days after his son was shot by Chicago police, Ellis Woodland Sr. came to Chicago Police Headquarters at 3510 S. Michigan Av. to ask the Police Board for some answers.

    “As the father of that boy, I want to know one question. Did his race or his community have a part in that split second decision?” Woodland asked the board.

    Police say his son, Ellis Woodland Jr., had a BB gun in his hand at the time of the shooting, and after reviewing the circumstances the department ruled the shooting was justified.

    Officers said the teen matched the description of a robbery suspect, and that his BB gun resembled a 9-mm handgun.

    His father believes there was another motive.

    “Had my son been of different color or creed that would not have happened,” Woodland said.

    In the wake of the shooting, residents of Cabrini Green say tensions between police and people the commnunity are high, and that a number of young people have been targets of police brutality.

    17-year-old Terrion Butler says he was walking down the street Thursday when two officers attacked him.

    “They say I fit the description of somebody they chased three days before,” Butler said.

    Butler was charged with mob action, but says he did nothing wrong.

    That's exactly what supporters of Ellis Woodland Jr. are saying about him. The teen remains in critical but stable condition at Children's Memorial Hospital.

    Police Supt. Phil Cline did not speak on camera Thursday night, but he did say that race and location were not factors in the boy's shooting.

    I think this video is funny. These people think that we just attck them for no reason. What a joke. Watch this video http://abclocal.go.com/wls/story?sec...cal&id=4472974
    Call of your troops. I love the chicak wearing the shirt that says "CAN WE GET PAID?" These people are a joke. One tactical nuke in the remainder of Cabrini and Englewood would solve it all.

    daddy is right.






    if it had been a m/w holding/pointing what resembles a 9mm pistol, when officers a flagged down on an armed robbery, and got shot. people would see it for what it is and not throw the stupid race card when they will not take responsibility for their own actions.

    on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
    expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
    brought my rifle."
