On the afternoon of May 30th in Franklin Park, a middle aged white man with salt-n-pepper hair with two terriers came up to a "Mary Elizabeth Anna" and her partner and asked them to call the police for him. He claimed that two guys on dirt bikes had pulled a gun on him when he had asked them not to ride in the park. Mary explains that neither her nor her partner felt comfortable with the situation so they both made up various excuses as to why they would not call the police for him. Mary goes onto say that the man gave up on them and moved onto the next closest people he could find to ask them the same thing- if they could call the police for him. Mary and her partner left and later on found the kids on bikes (who were black and unarmed). Other people in the area confirmed that the white male was lying and that the kids had ever pulled a gun on him, or anyone. After hearing this Marys partner tried to call 911 to relay that a false report had just been made and that the kids were in fact unarmed. but it was to late as police were already pursuing a completely different kid on a bike, (that being Zion Hunter aka LongLiveHShawn). A police car rammed into Zions bike resulting in him crashing and ending up in the hospital. Zion explains that he was launched into the air and thrown several feet from his bike. He hit the ground so hard he blacked out for several minutes. When finally regaining conciseness he had suffered several lacerations to his legs, arms, back and head. Along with a busted lip and a few missing and cracked teeth. His injuries were so severe he had to be rushed to the hospital.
It is likely the white male needed someone else's phone because he did not want the false report to be linked back to him. It is also highly probable that he used a fake name as well. The police now know it was a false report but Mary says one of the officers admitted that "It will probably fall through the cracks and not get investigated fully".
Zion does not have medical insurance and because of this him and his family cannot pay the thousands of dollars it will take to reconstruct his teeth, pay for his rehabilitation and cover his hospital bills.
It is only a matter of time before infection starts to set in within Zions mouth. So him and his family have since started a GoFundMe page in the hopes of raising $13,000 to fix his broken smile. He has also reached out to us to spread his story in the hopes that people will donate to him and his family for his swift recovery.
We ask that you please donate anything you can to Zion and his family. Every penny helps as they race to reconstruct his teeth before infection sets in. If you cannot donate for whatever reason then please share this story so more people can become aware. The link to Zion's GoFundMe page along with his contact info can be found below.
