Hearings continue in the shooting death of Oak Park Public Safety Officer Mason Stamborski, but conflicting evidence, sketchy reports, questions of police brutality and evidence of racial slurs against accused Jonathon Belton muddy the waters. Audio recordings of Officer John Stanson calling someone a racial epithet produced confusion, but not disclaimer from Stanson. Stanson does not deny saying the words, but claims that they ‘were not directed at anyone’ and only said ‘in the heat of the moment’. The accused, 18 year old Belton, is African-American; and is in custody over the 2008 shooting. Evidence continued with conflicting evidence that Mason Stamborski was in the act of attacking Belton when the gun was fired. Further confusion over the placement of bullet casings at the scene of the crime produced ‘I have no clue about that’ from Stanson. Two photos of Belton taken after the shooting from Belton’s cell phone have been submitted as evidence. One shows Belton using a hand gesture and possibly smiling or crying. Other evidence includes letters said, but not proved to be written by Belton about ‘gang activities’. Said ‘gang activities’ have not been defined.
