Our influence extends to three degrees. That means what you do affects you and your immediate friends, as well as your friends’ friends and your friends’ friends’ friends. Studies show obesity follows those lines and tend to occur in clusters of friends.
Originally a study [ https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_degrees_of_influence ] showed that if you wished to contact a person across the globe whom you did not know, it would take six degrees of separation for the letter to reach that person. In other words, if I wanted to send the Queen of England a letter from me, it would take only 6 degrees of influence to get that letter to her. With that said, let’s help Mrs. Stewart by sharing her story about her son Darrius Stewart, so it eventually reaches those with the authority to make a difference and help her get justice.

This is what happened to my son that Memphis, TN doesn’t want the world to know.
An unarmed 19 year old Darrius Stewart was driven to a black church on the night of July 17, 2015 by Memphis Police Department (MPD) officer Connor Schilling & brutally murdered for no apparent reason…
Darrius was in the backseat of a friend’s car when MPD officer (Connor Schilling) & another officer pulled the friend over for a headlight violation.
Instead of just checking the drivers’ license & proof of insurance.
He looked inside the car and asked the passengers for their I.D also, unfortunately Darrius left his I.D at home.
After checking all three young men identification, he assumed Darrius wasn’t who he claimed to have been because he did not have any I.D on him.
The other two young men said that Schilling then, open the back door of the vehicle & snatched Darrius out and stated that he was detaining him.
They said Darrius looked at them & start saying, “I’m scared, and I’m scared.”
They tried to explain to officer Schilling that this happened once before in June of this year.
He was riding with a friend when the Sherriff pulled them over.
Darrius had mistakenly left his I.D at home but the sheriff allowed him to call home and I gave them the number off the I.D over the phone.
They said that it was a person with the same exact name Darrius Stewart with outstanding warrants in different states but his I.D cleared him & he was free to go…
Schilling continued to put him in the back of his squad car with no hand cuffs on.
Darrius’s friends asked Schilling, why was Darrius being detained & was he under arrest he didn’t answer them. They asked him could Darrius give them my number to call me he replied, no.
They also asked the officer what was taking so long, he replied “I’m waiting on the station to get back with me.”
So, they decided to drive around the corner to get me alone with his I.D.
By the time I made it there, all I saw was police cars & yellow tape outside a church not where they said Schilling & the other officer stopped them at.
The police were blocking incoming & outgoing traffic off so fast but I manage to ask one of the bystanders what was going on.
She said, “He shot him for nothing.”
One of the police standing by her started pushing her back & cursing me out.
I went back home and called the Ridgeway precinct.
I spoke to the captain/sergeant and asked him did he know if a Darrius Stewart had been shot.
He said, he did not know because they just called him not too long ago & he was about to go down there.
I called my son’s phone all night & prayed that it wasn’t him.
MPD did not have the decency to let me know that one of their officers had killed my son (Darrius Stewart).
One of Darrius’s friends called me the next morning to tell me it was him.
When we contacted them they were already performing an autopsy on his body.
Schilling intentionally kidnapped my only son (Darrius Stewart) against his own free will by putting him in the back of his squad car pretending to be detaining him without any probable cause.
When the driver & the other passenger drove away, Schilling drove off with Darrius to a different location where he claim he tried to handcuff him & arrest him outside of a black church (New Direction) on Winchester Rd in Memphis, TN…
At night this particular church can be used as a blind spot to commit all types of heinous acts.
Darrius was in the backseat of a car pulled over for a headlight violation when his life was stolen from him by a racist police (Connor Schilling) appointed to protect & serve.
Connor Schilling shot & killed an unarmed defenseless 19 year old teen because of his skin color…
He has been on a suspended leave with pay since he murdered my son.
Check Connor Schilling’s background, he should have never been an officer upholding no laws which you can clearly see.
MPD officer Connor Schilling should be held accountable for the crime that he committed; Murder.
He should not be on payroll, he should be fired & prosecuted for the Murder of unarmed 19 year old Darrius Stewart…
Mrs. Stewart agreed to have her son’s story posted here. This story was brought to my attention by @PPete_En on Twitter.

When did it become mandatory to carry an ID?
I thought such requirements only occurred in the old Soviet Union.
Something is fundamentally wrong with a system that condones the murder of an unarmed innocent young man with no criminal history by a police officer. Something is fundamentally wrong when routine traffic stops lead to cops shooting to kill American citizens because of a broken taillight, or because the driver was black.
Wasn’t Darrius Stewart innocent until proven guilty? What did the now-retired Connor Schilling do to ensure he had the right suspect?
Darrius and his friends asked the officer to make one call to prove Darrius was who he proclaimed to be. Why didn’t Connor Schilling oblige? Darrius had no gun, or other weapons, and cooperated with Connor Schilling. Why did Connor Schilling shoot to kill an unarmed Darrius Stewart who he (Connor Schilling) had not proven committed a crime or posed any threat or was the correct suspect?
There was a time when essentially all cops were KKK members especially cops in the South. After Michael Brown was murdered, Americans learned the KKK is still very much part of the police force. Could the KKK ideology be the code of conduct for America’s 18,000 police departments?
Let’s help put an end to these extrajudicial murders by the police. Officers should not prey on the community they serve.
Demand that the laws change, police officers should be accountable and not above the law.
Demand mandatory tamper proof body cameras to protect the constitutional rights of American citizens.
Please reblog and share with friends so this post will reach those who can help Mrs Stewart and others get justice.
