Dallas Cops Gun Down Mentally-Ill Man

Last year, a Dallas woman called the police, asking them to help her escort her mentally-ill son to the hospital.

Asking the police for help? That was mistake #1.

Mistake #2: Allowing her mentally-ill son to hold a screwdriver when the cops arrived at the door.

Mistake #3: As is true with most incidents like this, being black around white, gun-happy cops.

White cops + black man + sharp object = yet another police brutality in America!

At least this incident was caught on film using a body cam, and the footage was recently leaked to the internet.

And before any cop apologists cry “but he had a sharp object on him, so the cops had no choice but to shoot him”, the cops were also carrying electric tasers. Why didn’t they use those?

Most cops are also trained to disarm someone without the use of lethal force. Why didn’t they do that? Why did they choose to use a method that was sure to end a life?

There was no other reason other than the white pigs were scared of a big scary black guy. So stop making excuses!
