in there. your mind is weird things to you. cuz at 1st i thought who was that girl? they looked like dolls actually in the room was so quiet and i knew she was gone because there is no spirit in her room. there was dead on january 18th, 2018. jasmine willis was killed by our partner terrace. for dillard, he shot or at least 6 times with a glock $22.00 pistol. then he turned the gun and himself curious should never had a gun. fillings and some people convicted of domestic violence are banned from having firearms under us law. but these are ineffective and rarely enforced
gap in the system are allowing domestic abusers to keep their guns with gently consequences. ah, every month, an average of $57.00 women in the us are shot and killed by their intimate partners . a number of these offenders were prohibited from having guns because of their criminal records. but we don't know how many because no one's keeping track. for nearly a year, i've been collecting and analyzing data on domestic violence homicides, and more than 20 states coming through thousands of pages of court filings and police reports. i found that over a recent 4 year period,
at least 90 people were convicted charger implicated in the death of their partners and others using guns they weren't allowed to have under federal law. johnson's partner terrace was one of them. oh, in 2014, he was convicted of domestic violence, assault against a girlfriend. he lived with which should have prohibited him from having a firearm. but these must don't spell out how guns should be relinquished or taken away there in forest radically or in terraces case. not at all. he carried a gun throughout his 3 year relationship with jasmine, me remember him showing me a gun or something. i don't know if i saw him carrie or son in the room. one time
when he saw the gun was there for protection or something. i really, i know i knew that some had a gun. did you worry about your sister or a you know, that means i always think of the videos we have of her when she would just be goofy and laughing. jasmine very charismatic. she fun. some are she ok? she went to college and she was 17. she graduated pretty young. she was one of the lot of energy she liked to dance in pictures in art work. she just amazing person. yeah. ah.
she bought a house at 21 years old. she still worked 2 jobs aren't played soccer and was abused. i just don't know how she did all that exercises with kitchen. oh, why? she sent me a video some more on january 16th. my faith is gorgeous. choose taking care of one of her patients. you. you keep telling me, i just want to do exercises with you. crazy. oh, i know my hands are always cold. my hearts were right. that's the last time i heard johnston's voice. when was the 1st time you had a bad feeling? who's kind of from the beginning? he would always be where she was. if they were here, he was here with her. if she had to go to work, he would go with her. that was my 1st clue and i was like, doesn't this guy have a job or something like he never left her alone?
i went to the house in less than a handful of times. i wasn't allowed to go over there and he would isolate her, keep her away from us. we didn't get us here very often. or if we did, it was he was around like look at her, she kind of laugh or being goofy anymore. that's how i kinda started noticing her personality change. ringback ringback ringback we knew something was wrong so interesting. not knowing that like my sister is getting abused by somebody that we talked to on a daily basis. we were totally oblivious for like 2 years because they were together for awhile and i think it was like in the summer we found out like she like randomly something like a dry
house taunting. not to any like thinking about everything a be an interview with the victim. jasmine. well, i understand you fuck somebody down. what led to that ellen and he got the gun and i thought he was was there bulletin to maxine she floated okay. do you think i should be still with you? and i was like on the ground, is saying, please, please, please, please. i went in to the read the book and it does run
a few following meal. been through the question, the rock couldn't want to run the road. i've been in a coma. ah, i'm saying a big move with question i came up here to stop like i was kind of facing the like the like one of the security cars. i went in to call, i was scared like he's that is like a oh scared. that would be the 1st person that he would go to her. i just wanted to let her know and they can think over
a number it at all. and when she came to hug me, she didn't have shoes on and she add marks on her neck marks on her arms. her back was all tore up and her shirt was basically barely hanging on the sleeve was talking. she's like, mom, it was my fault, is my fault, am i? it's not your fault this you for deal? i didn't find charging you semester friends are going to solve the deadly weapon. domestic violence, kidnapping terrace was arrested and liter charged with 2 felonies. he was ordered not to have any firearms under $7500.00. here to quit, no acts of domestic violence, possession of firearms,
have no contact with jasmine of any sort except for legal proceedings. and you're not to go back within 3 blocks of her residence. you understand that? yeah, thank you mr. for doing. but the judge stopped there. once again. terrace was in order to surrender his gun despite his domestic violence record. the laws are incomplete. it doesn't say that the judges have to order police officers to go get those guns. it doesn't say that they have to do a follow up hearing to make sure that the person actually turned in a gun like they were ordered. so basically we're operating on, on our system. i think it since a really terrible message to both survivors who are being told we don't really have her back. and we are going to issue this order, but we're not going to do anything to make sure that you're actually safe. and i think it, it also sends the absolutely wrong message to perpetrators that they can break the
law that they can endanger the lives of their partners. and other people ah, after 2 weeks in jail terrace was released on bond. and according to police reports he went on to abuse. jasmine in november 2017. jasmine ran out of her house to escape terrace. some of it was caught on a neighbor security camera. she told detectives about that night. i was about to take a shower and i just got scared and just ran. hi, jasmine is really only for home as terrace leads her back inside with. can you tell me why you got scared? is upset. i didn't do i just it is when we get away to feel
like a village which leave like every, like i'm being pushed and pulled into feeling is that you digging a bigger hole. i don't know what the do. jasmine was killed 2 months later. 6 months, 6 times, 30 days that the courts allowed him to be around her knowing he had a gun, the cards knew, the investigator knew the police knew he had a gun. and there is nobody in forest in error. i found these gaps in the system in cases
across the country. ah, i knew that he was i supposed to have a gun because he was a convicted felon. i figured that they would keep track of that, you know, the, the officers, the officials that are supposed to, lisa rucker's older sister, ashley began dating chat upshar in 2014 by then china been convicted of stalking, an ex girlfriend and shooting into her house as a felon, under both federal and florida law, he was prohibited from possessing a firearm. but he carried one anyway, multiple people and told ashley including my father that he was going to killer. we had heard about him hitting her with a pistole. she told me that she told me that he hit her in the head with a gun. norman officer turned i want to leave. they will not get
out of my apartment, my boyfriend, then why have any weapon? no, so that night when did you realize he had a gun? ah, when he pulled it out. he was me past ashley. he pulls out a rifle and he points it out and every part of me was like, not really going to shoot me. as i turned my head down, it was everything with black heard a loud noise. hello, guys, remember my god. when i came to the 1st time, ashley was about 6 feet away from me. i just saw blood around her head.
chad shot lisa and ashley before fleeing, according to police. the bullet had way in the back of my head here in came out my cheek it next my carotid artery and it basically shattered my mandible bone in to pieces. oh oh oh, i can thing help me. i'm dying. help me. i'm dying. but apparently my, my jaw was so messed up the you couldn't even hear me. hello. it was just gurgling. ashley and lisa sons were there. they were $9.00 and $4.00 at the time. i looked over and i saw my nephew standing over my sister, and he was crying. i guess cold. notice that i was awake. he came over to me and said, mommy,
please don't buy me. lisa was in a coma for 2 days. ashley was shot once in ahead and died of her injuries. she was 30 years old. do you think if he had his gun taken away ashley would still be alive. yes. i do. if he wasn't there with the gun, that would have happened. oh. ringback ringback ringback ringback ringback chad was indicted for several felonies, including 1st degree murder. i contacted him in jail for an interview. i wanted to ask him how he got the gun, but he and his lawyer didn't get back to us. ah, he's long had around here. and my daughter's got someone needs to start being held
accountable. and what happened with chad is not unusual. over the past several months, i spoken with a number of families whose loved ones were killed by their abusers. and that is exactly what happened to ryan domestic violence. offenders are rarely ordered to surrender their firearms and women are 5 times more likely to be murdered when their abusers have access to a gun. why should be here with her son? her son should have his mother. what should happen if i had an answer? i would have my daughter here. who was at fault here is that the justice system is a long foresman, is it that we have weak laws? all of the above. i think enforcement is expensive and it's challenging. it requires a lot of coordination between all different stages of law enforcement rate between police and prosecutors and probation officer is and sheriff's department to make sure that that gone is actually taken away. and that type of coordination is just
not something that people have decided it's worthy of putting resources into why was no one, no one from the judicial system or lease officers, no one decided to say, hey, this is a convicted felon. and is reported that he has a weapon. so why don't we just go and, you know, get a warrant search or house to find it. take it, let's get it back. you know, obviously the legal we failed that victim because we didn't have a framework in place where we could go and take that fire right now. is the wild west as far as guns in the hands of abusers. and i introduce legislation because i don't believe has to be that way. congressman swallows legislation would require the federal government to develop procedures for abusers to relinquish their guns,
but without enough support. the legislation died in congress twice. he introduced it again earlier this year, but it's unlikely it'll pass in today in america, the right front of the user to own a gun is greater than the right of a victim, to be se, finding a way to account for the number of firearms that someone has as important as to enforce relinquishment. we are truly flying in the blind. so why have a law on the books if it's not being in force and it's not working right, we need to fix that. we shouldn't have laws in the books that are just for show. the laws really can't do anything if we don't have a way to verify whether a defendant has a firearm in the home. we don't know of the country how many people are prohibited who have firearms and that's terrified.
ah, is anyone we know it's the bureau of alcohol, tobacco, firearms, and explosives, or the atf agency in charge of enforcing the nation's gun laws? how many people are prohibited from having guns because of felony convictions and qualifying domestic violence, misdemeanors. oh, i don't know that number. i'm not sure anyone knows that number with precision and how many domestic violence homicides are being committed by people who are not allowed to have guns. i don't have that number. so you don't know how many people have died at the hands of partners who are prohibited possessors and we don't know how many prohibitive possessors are out there. i don't we certainly track the number of firearms that we see. but our mission is focused on investigating violations of federal laws and not following up on local
misdemeanor domestic alex convictions. as far as we know, we reveal are the only ones who've been collecting data on prohibited offenders who kill their partners. the reason that the federal government isn't doing this is complicated. most convictions that make people federally prohibited happen in state courts and not information doesn't always make its way to federal officials. that just the american system that it's very decentralized. these convictions and domestic violence restraining orders are issued across the country in local courts . and in each of those places, i have an opportunity to identify the violations or we'll tragically, a lot of these only come to law enforcement attention when something terrible was happen, shot worth in the heart was the lay shot in the hell,
the entire sport kill them. so this country doesn't do prevention particularly well. the fact that the system is reactive is really the core of the problem. we don't take the trouble take the time to actually take the gun away before they can harm another person. we punish them on the back end, and by that time it's off until the hang up is that americans love their guns. americans own more guns per capita than any other developed country. and we are loath to take them away even in situations like this one. we don't know how terrorist got the hand gun he used to kill jasmine or how chad got the rifle. he's accused of using to shoot ashley and lisa and we may never know
there were reports of him having a weapon. he should have been more regulated. not only are there very few mechanisms to make sure guns are taken away from printed offenders. there's also no national firearm registry and federal law and some states don't require background checks for private gun sales. there needs to be a better way to enforce that. felons don't have access to weapons. i know it's hard . i get that they can get one way or another, steal it, buy it off the streets, whatever. so go one step ahead. be one step ahead of them. i feel like a lot of government people don't see how bad of an issue. it really is. they don't see the ripple effect from it. after ashley's death, her son moved to another state to live with his dad, who lisa hasn't seen her nephew in several years. and her son hasn't been the same
since a shooting. she is withdrawn. he used to be just o been different. he always tells me how much he misses my sister and my nephew, i'm worried that it will stick with him forever. you know, they say children are resilient. so they're, they're not supposed to see that they're not supposed to go through that. it's crazy to think i'll be 22 next year. female she was a hit me like a weird birthday next year. it's just hard not having jazz around she's reptile and our lives
unfairly matches china know that she's now safe and not getting hurt. it just makes you angry. not the system. not been down. mm. it's super growing legion. a 3rd of female workers have had their winds with me. one on one east investigates why so many women are having invasive surgery on out is there when the news break to go with when people need to be hi, oh, with exclusive interviews and in depth reports,
they're choosing those sites because their civilian tart, al jazeera, has teams on the ground barbie and say their numbers are barely a 5th of what they were before. the 2003 invasion because of iraq. security to bring you more award winning documentaries and lied needs ah accused of crimes against humanity. a draft report says that brazil's president should face criminal charging charges for his handling of covered 90. ah, all along on the south, 0 live from to ha also coming up us present. joe biden says he.
