Questionable Police Shooting

Witnesses: Man Killed By Officers Never Threatened Police - Local News - NBC10.com | WCAU
WILMINGTON, Del -- Six witnesses said the Virginia man who was shot and killed by a police officer last week never threatened the police.

Derek Hale, 25, was gunned down in the 1400 block of West Sixth Street on Nov. 6. He was given multiple shocks with Taser guns, then was killed by three bullets in his chest.
Police interviewed one witness, not six.

At this distance it is hard to know what happened, but if there were six witnesses that said Hale was a threat to police, I would probably believe them.

Hale was killed as a part of the War on (some) Drugs. He was a "Person of Interest." He had not been charged, tried or convicted. The question is, "Was he executed?" The war on (some) drugs is doing horrible things to this country. [via KABA]
