Gotta mix things up a bit. Can’t be shooting just Blacks all the time, you know?
Cops are saying he had a knife in his hand. They responded to a call of a man with a knife. He cut his wife in the head with the knife. Dispatchers said the man trying to do a “suicide by cop.” Looks like he got his wish.
Cops apparently did not know they were being filmed. Filmers claim the footage shows that the was shot while surrendering with his arms up in the air.
The two cops who shot him have been placed on leave while an investigation takes place. Standard procedure after a police shooting is that the officer(s) involved are suspected with pay while the investigation proceeds. With pay. Free vacation. Hell, that’s probably why they shoot people right there.
Things are pretty much up in the air right now regarding what really happened.
