    • Notes 


      • As retold by Don Sandrock on June 30, 2008

        Ernest was the one shot and killed after a robbery.
        My mother always said Ernest had the highest I.Q. of all the Carpenters. Too bad his potential was never realized.
        As my mother told it:
        Ernest held up a store and tried to get away. He ran into an alley and hid in a cardboard barrel. A spectator saw him climb into the barrel and directed the police to the location. .
        The police then shot thru the barrel several times, without giving him the opportunity to surrender. Two of the bullets found their mark, one in the chest.
        He fell out of the barrel and cried for help. The Policemen just stood there waiting for him to bleed to death.
        They both lit up cigarettes, and only when finished smoking, they finally called an ambulance for help.
        It was too late the loss of blood caused Ernest to slip into a coma. The hospital could do nothing further to save him. He lingered for several hours and died later that night.
        I remember that night even though I was just short of four years old. We drove from fox Lake to Chicago, my mother was very upset, and we arrived after dark.
        The rest of the family had already gathered in the house on Sheffield Ave.
        There was much crying as I remember...
        I wasn't fully aware of what was going on but I knew it was not good.
        My mother became very angry when she found out how he was shot, and how the police behaved after the shooting.
        She felt he could have survived if they had called the ambulance earlier.
        She didn't have much good to say about police the rest of her life.
