    Police Fatally Shoot Man in South L.A.; Family Members Say He Was Lying Down When Sho

    Police Fatally Shoot Man in South L.A.; Family Members Say He Was Lying Down When Shot | KTLA

    Officers responded to a report of a possible officer-involved shooting at the intersection of West 65th Street and South Broadway (map) at 8:12 p.m. Monday, Lt. Ellis Imaizumi of the Los Angeles Police Department said Monday evening.
    Another black man shot in the back while complying with police orders.

    WTF? are police departments having open season on black people or what?

    Seems not.

    The fatal incident was expected to be reviewed by Beck, the Office of the Inspector General and Board of Police Commissioners “for compliance with the department’s use-of-force policy, which states that an officer’s use-of-force actions must objectively reasonable,” the LAPD’s news release stated.

    The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Justice System Integrity Division was also expected to review the shooting.

    Anyone with information was asked to call the LAPD’s Force Investigation Division at 213-486-5230.

    Anyone who is walking down the street with a Black skin on their body always has to know that some White man with a gun could put some holes in their body.

    So could a black man. I believe it's even statistically more likely to be a black man, not that this really means very much in itself.

    Maybe America needs to get over its race obsession so it can focus on its violent crime.

    Uh, if the suspect was on the ground, how did the officer get the scrapes/scratches?

    I think we need to let investigations take place instead of getting emotional over what someone says.

    Just like others in the past, Al Sharpton and his crowd will be all over this like flies on ****, stink even worse and cause so much emotional and hearsay problems that we will likely never know the truth.

    Justice will prevail if we mourn a person and not the color of his skin.

    I agree with your opinion of Sharpton, but this shooting stinks and maybe he is what is needed to let the air out of this festering gasbag. The police are doing the worst job possible as regards law and PR in this matter. There are at least two eyewitnesses who's statements make this sound like a murder. One article I read states that the police have not even interviewed the man who was with Brown. Investigation? If there is no investigation, there will be no evidence of a murder/manslaughter or even a crime. This whole thing will just be an urban legend like LBJ and the Gulf of Tonkin, Nixon scuttling Viernam peace talks, Saint Ronnie scuttling Carter's hostage negotiations, and GWB's mythical WMDs. It's all about the Media and what they choose to propagate.

    From the article

    "Officers sustained minor scrapes during the altercation and did not require hospitalization"

    So how is it you explain that a cop sustained those scrapes during an altercation if the suspect was complying and lying on the ground?

    You mean the same mythical WMDs that ISIS seized?
