Aiyana Mo’Nay Stanley Jones
Aiyana Mo’Nay Stanley Jones born July 20th, 2002 was killed at
the age of seven on May 16th, 2010 during a raid by the SWAT team in Detroit by Joe “Brain” Weekley. The SWAT team raided Aiyana’s home searching for a suspect of a murder investigation. Aiyana was shot and killed by the police during the raid on her home in the early morning hours of May 16th. According to family members of Aiyana the police tossed in a flashbang grenade through the window of Aiyana’s home. The device started a fire on Aiyana’s bed and set this precious little angle on fire after she had been shot.
This story is so sad, she was such a beautiful little girl and her life was taken by careless officers who had no regard for children being inside the home they raided. The only thing these officers could think about was trying to catch a suspect, in my opinion they failed to take the necessary precautions of protecting innocent lives. I pray for this little girls family and hope they find peace and comfort after dealing with such a tragic event.
