If you are not outraged by this I don’t know what to say.
When a simple robbery of two sodas from a convince store in St Louis (4 miles from Ferguson) leaves a man dead less than two minutes after the soda robbery and the time cops showed, I’m appalled. The repeated shooting by the St Louis Police Department is unforgivable.
Watch the video…the cops (who claim themselves as the victims in the police report) said the black man, 25 year old Kajieme Powell, ran in attempts to attack them and was within striking distance with a knife and they were defending their lives.
Well, the video tells a different story.
This is murder in the streets of the United States of America. This was two days ago and is not getting mainstream news attention because the media does not want to fan the flames as the protests are slowly fading away and violence is down.
I promised that I would be out protesting with the next innocent shooting and murder by police. I will be.
This has to stop because this could be any of us or somebody we know. The police need to control their adrenaline rush when they think somebody is attacking them, the video shows they were not. One shot would have slowed this man and brought him to his knees.
Nine shots are the equivalent of an execution.
this man is probably so ashamed that 50 years later he is in the same spot again
