Bill Evans Statement

Statement from Bill Evans and Kim Porter, the parents of Ben Evans: 

“We are devastated. We have waited patiently for 23 months to understand why our son Ben is dead. We know Brian Krook killed Ben. He was only 23 years old. Ben was a dedicated public servant–a firefighter and an EMT. He left behind a daughter who will never know him. We were hoping the jury would see the sheer recklessness of this officer and his utter disregard for our son’s life. We worry about the next time a police officer shoots someone’s son and about the message this verdict sends–that the police can shoot people whom they are called upon to help. Brian Krook took an oath to protect and serve. He did neither for our son.”
