What happened to Luke Gilbert? The reason explained, The cop killed him
Two cops killed Luke Gilbert on Saturday. Around 12 o clock, he was having fun in the area of Airlie beach which is a popular Whitsunday tourist hotspot, At that time he fatally approached them with a knife. His parents Nicola and Darren, describe his death in an interview with 9News, where they talked about how his child information police bring to us.
Father said…“Two police officials came in, and they just stood, didn’t ask us to sit down, and they stood in the kitchen bench and said,’ We’re sorry to tell you, but your son has died.”
The young boy was raised in Western Australia but when he died he was serving in Townsville. His father wants to the ask police, Please tell me the reason why you have to shooted my son five times.
Mr. Gilbert said in front of reporters, “All of a sudden produced a knife from his hoodie and started threatening police”.” The police have tried to further engage and have retreated and moved from that location and tried or continued to communicate with that male person”
Zac suggested to the police… “went straight for the guns irresponsibly, they didn’t try the taser, the baton, or the pepper spray first.”
49 years old Luke’s Aunt Gina, Told the publication
“As a family, we are anxious for any explanations. That wasn’t Luke; not that Luke
He was a charming man who travelled a lot and was full of life. Everyone liked him. He was well-known and respected by everyone.
The cops are not directly communicating with the family.You don’t simply go from enjoying a night out in a pub to getting shot and killed in 10 minutes.Luke, who also leaves behind a teenage sister named Katie,had caught up with his girlfriend.
According to Gina:‘The two of them were out for drinks. “She says that they were having a wonderful night and that he was in good spirits; that is the only information we have.Everything went well.’
“He went outside to smoke while she went to the restroom or got a drink.She rang his phone after he left the room but got no response. She then went outside to observe what had occurred.He was shot dead outside.”
”We as a family are really in need of solutions. They receive no help or support.” I have no idea where to start. It has truly been a shock. Luke has visited his relatives several times, and there are a lot of them here. An autopsy was performed on Luke this morning. Three shots have been fired at his chest, and one of them had completely passed through him. Five shots were fired, and two of them struck in automobile windows.
”We have heard various different tales and are unsure on how to understand them. According to one story, as he got closer to the officers, he pulled out a knife and lunged at them for an unspecified reason.”
” Another account claims that he ran across a road at them with a knife. The knife they are referring to is a fishing knife, similar to a penknife we may take camping. We are simply unsure about what to believe. Although this narrative has several sides,the treatment of the family in the aftermath is by far the most important.”
Zac brother of Luke wrote on the Facebool, “There has been much media conjecture regarding the circumstances surrounding the death of his brother,but the truth is that excessive force was used on him,which resulted in his death,and that cannot be undone.Instead of using the taser,baton,or pepper spray first, the police carelessly went for the weapons. Never again the life will be the same.He was entitled to so much more than this.This is unbelievable,I can’t believe it.”
