Maria de Lourdes Vazquez Hernandez was shot by Tulsa police on April 20th after a passer-by called police to report a woman acting strangely in the parking lot of Las Americas grocery store at Lewis and I-244 in Tulsa. Allegedly the caller said that the woman had a gun tucked into her waistband.
Tulsa cops show up and order the woman out of the vehicle in which she was sitting. Police also allegedly asked her if she had gun to which she allegedly replied in the affirmative.
At this point in the story it gets a bit crazy and two Tulsa cops, Jason Bell and Jennifer Moore, open fire on Hernandez wounding her once in the arm and twice in the stomach.
It gets crazier still when one realizes that no gun was found on Hernandez, in the vehicle in which she was sitting or anywhere in the vicinity.
Where it really gets crazy is when you realize that once Hernandez was released from the hospital she was arrested on a charge of assault with a dangerous weapon. Huh? What dangerous weapon?
Go figure, a woman was shot three times by the cops, who obviously had guns and used them, and yet the shooting victim is charged with assault with a deadly weapon!
I swear, I am not making this stuff up. See for yourself…
