San Francisco Police shoot & kill 19 yr old
Warning: the video is graphic.
Yesterday, at 4:45 p.m., SFPD shot a teenager who fled during a fair inspection on a Muni light rail car. The cops claimed that he was armed and had fired shots at them first. After the suspect was shot in the back, no gun was found. Doesn’t this sound awfully familiar?
Seriously though, you shot a 19 yr old over a $2 fair? And he later died in the hospital, all because he didn’t pay a $2 fair & you assumed he had a gun. Back up arrived before an ambulance did. No back up was needed. There were already other cops on the scene, some even carrying assault rifles. The man was on the ground fighting for his life. That moment in the video where he struggles to even attempt to get up is some of the most chilling video I’ve seen. Ever.
It’s okay though right? America will probably ignore this & move on to some more mindless crap, as is usually the case. I’ve seen it before with the Oscar grant case, Sean bell, James Brissette, and countless others. When will this country’s collective conscious wake up?
I hope this happed 1 minute ago because this having less than 1,000 notes is just pitiful. Damn Bay area police are almost as bad as NYPD
I’m not going to watch the video right now because I’m trying as it is
But this whole “he had a gun and fired first” needs to be forever inadmissible on account of constant lies and bullshit.
3. If someone is shooting at you how do you shoot them in the back
"only police should have guns"
The worse part is that the police surrounded the guy and watched him bleed to death. No one came to stop the blood. They just stood there and kept a blockade around people who were trying to save him. Fuck the police indeed. This needs to be sent to the Supreme Court, and these cops need to be put on trial immediately.
Like the guy towards the end of the video was shouting:
"YOUR CAREER IS OVER."
Signal boost this video. It needs to be brought to the country’s attention.
All I really want right now is for someone to sleep with me, like actually fall asleep with me. Wrapped up in my arms, tucked tightly under the blankets and our legs intertwined. And then just be there in the morning when I open my eyes, please.
