Unarmed High School Sports Star Killed by Police as He Backed Out of His Own Driveway

Free Thought Project – by Matt Agorist

Johnson County, KS — A family grieving and a town left in shock after police responded to a welfare check of a beloved high school student Saturday afternoon—and killed him. Blue Valley Northwest High School junior John Albers was unarmed and backing out of his garage when an Overland Park Police Officer opened fire on him, killing him on the spot.

The incident happened on Saturday but the dispatch recordings were released Monday night which paint a picture of what happened. The most crucial part of the picture, however, is missing, and that is why the officer felt the need to kill the 17-year-old wrestling and track star.

Naturally, the officer is claiming that he feared for his life as the teen backed out of the garage, so he had no other choice but to kill him. Apparently, stepping sideways was not an option.

Police said that “as the responding officers approached the residence to make contact, the garage door opened and a vehicle exited the garage, moving rapidly toward one of the responding officers. The officer discharged his service weapon striking the male driver,” the statement said. “The driver died at the scene.”

The officer was entirely unharmed in spite of creating a dangerous situation in which the teen lost control of the vehicle as he was filled with bullet holes—illustrating the entirely unnecessary escalation of force.

According to the dispatch records, Albers girlfriend called police after she says during a facetime chat, the teen indicated that he wanted to harm himself.

Monday night, the Kansas City Star released the dispatch audio, along with a timeline of events:

By 5:50 p.m. Saturday, police dispatch alerted that the call to the Albers’ home was now “Code one. Stabbing.”

“Copy,” came a first-responder’s reply. “We’re sending them in.”

Within a minute, someone radioed, “It seems to be a confirmed J-21 (suicide attempt) at this time. And they’ve requested additional units.”

The last call picked up by the website Broadcastify was the dispatcher, listing three more officer numbers, saying, “You could all be en route for the (suicide) attempt” on West 149th Terrace.

The radio traffic found on the website does not reveal any clues on just when or how Albers was shot.

The officer who fired his weapon and killed the high school junior has yet to be named. The department only said that he has been placed on administrative leave while the shooting is being investigated by the Johnson County Officer-Involved Shooting Team.

Albers’ parents—who were not home when he was killed—have not spoken publicly to the press. The did, however, release a statement on social media saying, “We are heartbroken at the loss of our beloved son, John. We truly appreciate the outpouring of support from friends, family and community. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers and for respecting our privacy during this very difficult time.”

Albers’ death has hit the community hard, especially his schoolmates who remembered him as “loving,” “loyal,” and “giving.” On Sunday, dozens of students gathered to hold a vigil for the slain teen.

Albers was “very caring, very outgoing, very loyal,” and “very, very, very giving,” junior Gabriel Bright told BNVW News.

“I loved him,” he said. “I want to raise awareness and make sure everybody knew that this world, this bubble that we live in isn’t always so perfect.”

Indeed, while many people think police killings are reserved for a certain section of society, as Albers’ case illustrates, it can happen anywhere.

    Cops new mantra

    we no longer work to protect and serve our communities

    were just here to kick yer ass and fill ya full of lead , and be constantly fearful every waking minuet of every day ,, cause were pussies

    When someone is in need the last call to make is to a code enforcer…the ‘girlfriend’ demonstrated her indoctrination to ‘authority ‘ within the commie model ….home births, home schooling ….not rhetoric but logic

    I’m sorry the kid died, but it happened because his girlfriend is an idiot. She was worried about her boyfriend, so instead of going to see him, the bimbo sends in a hit team.

    This is what it takes for people to learn that there’s a big difference between real cops and TV cops. Maybe the lunatics have to shoot a dozen more kids in the neighborhood before the community decides they don’t really need police.

    • Enemy of the State says:

      Yup she’s an idiot
      But the cop is responsible for putting his booger picker on the bang switch

      But , will get his vacation pay and a new box of bullets
      Yer definitely right about not needing them

    I fail to see the difference between a “swatting” and a “wellness check”. Both typically end tragically, but in the swatting, somebody gets in trouble.
    I’m thinking, or rather concerned about the wellness of a “friend” of mine 😉

  5. oddizee says:

    It’s really not an idea to use cops for something like this. Where did this idea come from? It’s a question that needs answered. How will this town secure themselves/ Or do they continue the victim, we’re nice people vigils? Kick some butt, fire and prosecute . take back your town. Sue the Israeli training many received. Sue Israel.

    Ahhh…

    I can’t even crack on this 1.

    U people stole all my punchlines.

  7. Martist says:

    Look on the bright side, he didn’t get to kill himself, right? His snitch b***h did it FOR him. This is why I don’t talk to my daughters. They’re dangerous because they want to “help” by using the system. Thanks, but no thanks.

    “The officer who fired his weapon and killed the high school junior has yet to be named.”

    Killer Pig will do.

    “… he has been placed on administrative leave while the shooting is being investigated by the Johnson County Officer-Involved Shooting Team.”

    No charges AND a promotion forthcoming.

    Sooner or later these stupid sheeple are gonna figure this sh#t out… and there WILL be hell to pay.
