Police kill a lot of unarmed people. So far in 2015, as many as 100 unarmed people have been killed by police. Here are fifteen of the most outrageous reasons given by police to justify killing unarmed people in the last twelve months.
And these don’t even mention the military tools at police’s disposal. What about when those are used in earnest?
In my small, rural county we had a young preacher shot to death for the crime of withdrawing money from an ATM and then starting to drive away when plainsclothes police rushed his vehicle from behind. He got less than 10 feet before being shot thru the passengers window. He left a young pregnant wife behind. His last words were “who shot me?” Yep, it was justified. I remember the good old days when the cops would at least plant a gun on an unarmed shooting victim. They dont even bother anymore, just claim that “he or she put me in fear for my life” .
