Harris was a senior student in high school when he was convicted of murder, attempted murder, and other charges in connection to the 2011 shooting at a gas station that killed one person and critically injured another one. Cook County Circuit Judge Nicholas Ford ruled the conviction based largely on the testimony of the supposed eye-witness, Dexter Saffold.
According to Saffold’s testimony, he was riding his scooter near the gas station when he heard gunshots. He said he was approximately 18 feet away from the scene when he saw someone firing the shots. He also said the gunman bumped into him while fleeing the scene. Eight days after the incident, Saffold pointed out Harris from the lineup and identified him again in court.

However, new evidence — in the form of a 2013 discrimination lawsuit — shows that Saffold suffered from glaucoma, a disease that made him legally blind. He was found to be receiving disability benefits about 10 years before the shooting, more proving his visual impairment. During the trial, Saffold was asked if his diabetes affected his vision, in which he initially answered yes and then quickly changed his answer.

Harris’ attorney, Jodi Garvey, claimed that Saffold’s testimony should be tossed out due to his inconsistencies. She wrote in a July court filing, “Considering the fact that Mr. Saffold is admittedly legally blind, a matter he denied during his testimony, his identification is worthless.” Aside from that, Garvey said a surveillance video showed a man on the scooter, presumably Saffold, approaching the gas station after the shooting and after the gunman left which would contradict Saffold’s testimony that he saw the incident and he bumped into the gunman. Garvey said the surveillance video wasn’t presented at the trial.” #melanin #justice #chicago #illinois #racism #merica #blackmen #share # #culture #supportblackbusiness #melaninpoppin #myblackisbeautiful #beautiful #love #blackisbeautiful #photooftheday #blacklove #blackunity #fortheculture #blackbusiness #amerikkk #regrann #blackpower #blackness #blacknews #blacks #blackstylematters Pissed!
