A police officer shot an unarmed black man in the street with his hands up. This was captured on cell phone video. The black man is a therapist at a group home and he was trying to assist an autistic man who had escaped the home and was playing with toy truck in the street.
Now I doubt that this shooting was racially motivated as, right now, there seems to be no reason the cop should have fired at all. I’m going to guess that it was just a lack of trigger discipline in a stressful situation.
Hopefully this cop will have plenty of time to learn this lesson – in prison.
Sound harsh? Maybe, but consider that if you are I shot somebody in an AD, our negligence gets us sent to prison.
