保安向手无寸铁陈建生开5枪,两周未被起诉

2017年1月26日,时值猴年岁末,美国维州Chesapeake城一位手无寸铁的60岁祖父陈建生在小区玩Pokemon手机游戏的时候,在自己车中被小区保安用枪打死。Chesapeake警方确认当时陈建生没有携带任何武器,而驾驶座前方的车窗聚集了5个弹孔。但是,保安公司则声明保安开枪是出于自卫。

这一事件轰动了美国,轰动了华人社区。而令大家更为愤怒,而且不解的是,两周过去后,警方至今没有公布开枪保安的姓名,也没有逮捕或起诉这名保安,而一直声称此案还在调查中。究竟为什么警方在调查此案中采取拖延策略?

据维州当地媒体报道,2月6日,保安公司的律师安德鲁·塞克斯在办公室召开新闻发布会,他向媒体披露了来自保安公司长达5页的调查报告。报告声称,事发当时,陈开着小面包车,曾试图撞倒保安,使其生命受到威胁。

而警方的陈述则是陈建生与案发当晚11点左右在自己的小面包车中与保安发生了口角。保安开枪通过车窗将陈打死。

律师塞克斯发布的来自保安公司的陈述中提到,在过去的一年半中,陈,或者陈家人曾多次与保安公司有过节。陈由于入侵私人地界(trespassing)而收到禁令,禁止陈在晚间进入指定地区。而最近的一份禁令是在枪击前十天发出的。

律师塞克斯陈述到,案发当晚,保安发现一辆小面包车出现在私人地界。保安前去询问,认出是十天前曾来到此地的陈建生和他驾驶的小面包车。在拒绝服从保安的指令后,陈数次试图用小面包车冲撞保安。无论保安如何躲避,陈不听指示,并试图跟随,撞击保安。此时保安向陈开枪造成了人命悲剧。

律师塞克斯进一步说明,当时保安穿着正式保安制服,并配有黄色闪灯的保安车辆。律师塞克斯在新闻发布会之前曾表示他获悉案发时,在保安车上有另一位现场证人,可能目击了部分当时的情况。但是在新闻发布会上,律师塞克斯并没有提供该证人的具体信息。也没有提及这一信息的来源。

而陈家当时的律师,格雷格·桑德勒认为保安公司的陈述充满了疑点。首先,社区保安没有权力对“入侵私人地界”这样的行为动用致命武力。穿戴保安制服并不赋予保安和警察同等的拘捕,询问,调查,枪击等执法权限。

桑德勒认为自卫是不恰当的声明,这和警方使用的自卫并不属于同一概念。

在上周一的一份声明中,维州检察官南希·帕表示,此案调查还在继续,还没有结论。探员正在跟踪收到的信息,来决定信息的准确性。

南希表示,所有的决定将根据可信的证据,而不是传言或向媒体公布的,没有事实证明的单方陈述。

警方发言人凯利·埃利奥特表示在警方报告中没有提到陈建生有任何武器。但是拒绝向媒体提供911报警电话记录。而陈建生的家庭则表示对无法从警方了解更多信息表示无奈和失望。

而陈建生所在小区的业主委员会则表示,和该保安公司的合约只要求不配枪,每晚巡查3次。该合约在事发后已经被终止。

陈建生的死惊动了全美华人。一个小区保安在与当事人发生口角的情况下就可以将手无寸铁的当事人连开五枪打死。如果开枪的是警察,这已经属于暴力执法。更何况开枪者是一名没有执法权力的小区保安。

目前,警方还是没有发布调查结果。当警方完成调查后,将由地区检查官决定是否对枪手起诉,以及起诉罪名。华人社区在这件事上反映强烈,在请愿网站(change.org)上,华人自发向地区检查官发起签名请愿,希望伸张正义,严惩凶手。截稿时,已有5千4百余签名,而且签名人数还在迅速递增。

据2月13日最新消息,保安公司律师发给当地电视台的一份声明中表示:我理解,也感激人们对社区成员的同情。此人的宗族不是问题,问题是此人的行为。很不幸的是,所有迹象表明使用武力避免保安被撞致死,或严重受伤是必要的举措。

而Chesapeake警方也表示有小区两户居民和警长见过面,讨论陈的案件,但案情还在调查中。

而陈家的律师詹姆斯·布洛克来迪(和之前的律师不同,是否陈家已经更换律师?)也向当地电视台发布声明,表示:陈家感谢在他们最需要的时候,在他们寻求公正的时候获得来自华人社区的爱和支持。我们也希望能与Chesapeake警局,以及维州检查官办公室一起共同为陈建生讨回公道。

华人朋友们,这是一个关键的时刻。我们希望大家一起行动起来,做我们力所能及,为死去的陈建生讨回公道。请大家在change.org上签名请愿,表达我们对这一事件的关注,提出我们对司法公正的诉求。此时不团结,何时团结?此时不发声,何时发声?

华府华人中心 蒯文明,以Great Falls居民,和社区协调者的身份,代表110个签名的社团向维州检察官,维州检查长,Chesapeake市长,Chesapeake警长,维州州长,维州议会发出请愿信。内容如下:

Dear Ms. Parr, Mr. Herring, Dr. Krasnoff, Colonel Wright, Governor
McAuliffe, and Members of General Assembly,

I am writing to you on behalf of 101 organizations listed after this letter regarding the killing of Mr. Jiansheng Chen. We are shocked and deeply saddened by the shooting death of a 60-yearold grandpa, Jiansheng Chen, in the River Walk Community of Chesapeake, Virginia on January 26, 2017. Along with many concerned citizens in this country who have expressed their thoughts online and offline in the past days, we are deeply troubled by this case because of several highly unusual and disturbing facts.

First of all, which is also the most critical question for everyone concerned, what should be the role and limits of security guards? The community clearly expected the guards to protect them, yet one of their own residents was shot right in front of the club house in this very community. The HOA contract clearly stated that the guards were to be “unarmed” while on patrol. Yet this shooter carried a gun while performing his patrol duty. Whether the guard was authorized to carry a gun or not while on patrol was a glaring contradiction between the HOA contract released earlier and the statement from the lawyer of the security guard company on Monday February 6.

Second, what kind of interaction prior to the shooting could have led to and justify firing six shots at the front windshield of a car where a 60-year old man was just playing the Pokémon go? The claim of shooting in selfdefense after an altercation that night with Chen who has had multiple previous encounters with the guard was counter intuitive at best. A stream of questions surfaced on whether shooting was the most typical reaction for avoiding a car headed straight for someone, whether firing so many shots in such a concentrated area on the windshield was feasible with a car moving at a speed that posed life threatening danger, and whether and how the car could have not crashed into anything after the driver was shot to death.

Finally, what should be the proper protocol after a life was lost? To the best
of our knowledge, the shooter was dismissed right after being questioned
for a few minutes and was not arrested. It has been two weeks after the
shooting and the public is still in the dark as to the results of the
investigation, or even the shooter’s name.

We are here to express concerns over what transpired that night and what followed. We, along with all concerned citizens, strongly urge that the City of Chesapeake and its Police Department conduct a thorough, fair, and transparent investigation. Chen’s family, their community, and all citizens in the society concerned about the use of deadly forces deserve nothing less than the truth. We reserve the rights to take appropriate actions in the future to support Mr. Chen’s family if this case is not handled properly.

Respectfully Yours,

Wenming Kuai, Resident of Great Falls, Virginia

Member of Community Coordinators Seeking Justice for Jiansheng Chen

  1. 这个案件给我的第一个本能看法就是:保安是故意杀人。我是悲愤交加,从知道这件事情开始就一直很难受,难以释怀。本来要想查明真相并不难,当时目击者还有另外一个保安。可是,到现在,还在调查之中,不得不令人猜测:到底有多少内幕啊?
