Crown Heights church was conducting services as usual. However, the church leaders were quick to express concern over an officer entering the church looking for a man who was a suspect in a traffic accident. The officers had chased an 18-year-old into the Shiloh Seventh-Day Adventist Church Friday night. According to a Brooklyn Criminal Lawyer, the 18 year old had stolen a car and fled.
Church officials indicated that for the most part the parishioners felt violated. According to one of those in the church worshipping, the police entered the church as if they were raiding a crack house. Brooklyn Criminal Lawyers can be of great assistance in these situations.
The officers conducting the chase indicated that they were only looking for a suspect. The suspect had been driving the wrong way on a one-way street and ended up on the sidewalk. The police made it plain that they were attempting to protect the general public from a criminal. The youngster who is a member of the church has eleven charged, including grand larceny and reckless driving pending against him. According to a New York Criminal Lawyer, one of the church elders asked if he could negotiate with the suspect to surrender but that his requests were ignored. According to the members in attendance, officers kicked the suspect in the head and punched him in the stomach when they found him.
