Try not to get sick looking at the guilt ridden white garbage Unarmed stepbrothers shot by officer in Olympia, Wash. after shoplifting call, sparking protests BY Jason Silverstein NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Published: Friday, May 22, 2015, 5:06 AM Updated: Friday, May 22, 2015, 10:38 AM Steve Bloom/The Olympian via AP Hundreds of people march to Olympia City Hall to protest a non-fatal police shooting of two unarmed black men. What began as a call about shoplifted beer in Olympia, Wash. early Thursday led to the police shootings of two unarmed black stepbrothers and, in response, intense street protests through the evening. Hundreds of protesters stormed the Olympia police headquarters and City Hall, chanting “Black Lives Matter” and “No Justice, No Peace” after the non-fatal shootings of Andre Thompson, 24, and Bryson Chaplin, 21. Thompson is in stable condition, while Chaplin was critically injured. Both are expected to survive Olympia’s first officer-involved shooting since 2012. The protests over the shootings remained peaceful, and Olympia Mayor Stephen Buxbaum urged citizens in a statement to “not be reactive." VIDEO: Hundreds protest police shooting KIRO - Seattle The violent police encounter was sparked by a call from employees at a Safeway store around 1 a.m. Thursday, saying two men had tried to steal beer and threw the brews at workers who approached them. Officer Ryan Donald, who is white, found the stepbrothers skateboarding near the store and believed they matched the descriptions given to police. Just moments later, he radioed his department to let them know he’d fired shots. Minutes later, he said both men had gunshot wounds to the torso. Police later said the first shooting happened near Donald’s car and the second in a wooded area where the men fled. It has not been confirmed where each man was shot or how many times.

The officer claimed one of them had “assaulted me with his skateboard” and called the stepbrothers “very aggressive," as heard on a recording of his calls, which was released by the department. ("Shot fired" is first heard at 10:26 of the released recording.) Donald was not hurt, and Olympia Police Chief Ronnie Roberts later said the officer had “the right to defend himself” if he was under attack. “There’s no indication that race was a factor,” Roberts insisted. Donald, 35, is now on administrative leave, which is standard procedure for the force as a police shooting is investigated. He has been with the department for only three years and previously worked as an Army police officer. The stepbrothers live in Vancouver, Wash., and grew up in Woonsocket, R.I., according to their Facebook pages. Both have criminal records dating back at least three years, the Seattle Times reported. Thompson has pleaded guilty to several charges, including supplying liquor to a minor and obstructing a law enforcement officer. Chaplin pleaded guilty in 2012 to taking a motor vehicle without permission, and has an extensive juvenile court record with robbery, theft and assault guilty pleas. Ted S.

But she thought nothing of it until she got home and saw her brothers weren't there. "That's when I started to worry," Thompson told the paper. "I thought, 'Did I just see my brother get shot?'"
