Unarmed Teen Shot, Killed By Police, Cried For His Mother: 'Mommy, Mommy, Please Come' (xpost GD) [View all]

Lucia Morejon cannot escape the haunting memory she has of the final desperate words spoken to her by her teenage son after he was shot by police: "Mommy, Mommy, please come, please come."

Hector Morejon, the youngest of five children, made that plea for help after he was shot by a Long Beach, California, police officer, who allegedly thought the 19-year-old was in possession of a firearm Thursday afternoon....

"He was reaching for her -- reaching out to her for help," lawyer Sonia Mercado told The Huffington Post. "She identified herself as his mother, expecting to ride with him to the hospital, but they refused to let her in."

The chilling words -- "Mommy, Mommy, please come, please come" -- are the same words Lucia Morejon hears when she closes her eyes today, five days after her son's death, Mercado said.


Gosh, I love my Blue state!
