I was going to add this to the old “Ferguson” thread, but I figure this happens often enough that it deserves its own thread. Here’s our first incident:
The cell-phone video is pretty damning, though the filming woman “looks away” just before they shoot the guy. An earlier report indicated that although the officers were wearing body-cams, they were deactivated. The convenience store’s surveillance footage was confiscated by the police.
Of note, the police were there because someone had called in that Sterling had been threatening someone else with a gun, so they at least had some reason to believe he was armed and dangerous.
