ΣΚΟΤΩΝΟΥΝ ΚΑΙ …ΔΕΝ ΠΛΗΡΩΝΟΥΝ!!!
Άνθρωπος με νοητική υστέρηση πυροβολήθηκε 45 φορές, χωρίς να προκύπτει ότι μπορούσε να απειλήσει την ζωή κάποιου άλλου.
Είχε στην κατοχή του έναν μικρό σουγιά μόνο.
Συνέβη το 2012.
Οι αστυνομικοί δεν τιμωρήθηκαν ποτέ.
Το θύμα ήταν μαύρος και φτωχός, οπότε …δεν τον έκλαψε κάποιος…!!!
…Πόσο μάλλον να βρεθεί κάποιος να αναζητήσει τις ευθύνες της εν ψυχρώ εκτελέσεως!!!
New video shows US police shot black man 45 times like ‘firing squad’
A new video footage shows brutality of US police against black people as eight police officers shot a mentally ill African-American man 45 times in Michigan.
The 49-year-old victim, Milton Hall, was killed by the officers in Saginaw in 2012.
The shooting aroused a local outcry and a federal investigation two years ago.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) that released the video on Monday presented a testimony about the police shooting.
The video shows that eight police officers ringing the man in a parking lot with one dog growling at the poor man. Hall was not carrying any weapons except for a penknife. He was then shot by the officers 45 times and 14 of those shots struck him dead.
The ACLU gave the police dashboard footage to representatives of the Organization of American States in order to pressure the federal government to look at Hall’s death scene one more time.
In February, the Department of Justice said it could not find “sufficient evidence of willful misconduct” to prosecute the eight officers.
During the Monday hearing, Mark Fancher, a lawyer with the ACLU of Michigan, said the officers were likened a “firing squad” and slammed the Justice Department for not prosecuting them.
Fancher said the incident was “not only reckless, but clearly unjust, and also grossly violated Milton Hall’s human right to life.”
In an interview with Press TV last month, American political commentator Randy short said Washington’s population policy for African-Americans involves mass abortion, mass incarceration and an “incremental genocide” by the police.
Short said that not only American police officers are not punished for killing blacks but they are often “rewarded for murdering blacks.”

Autopsy: Police shot black man with sword in back
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A black man who was shot by Utah police while armed with a samurai-style sword as part of a Japanese anime costume died of multiple gunshot wounds, including several in the back of his body, according to an autopsy released Tuesday.
The state autopsy documents six gunshot wounds on the body of 22-year-old Darrien Hunt and finds at least four of the shots entered his body from behind.
That generally confirms the results of an independent autopsy released by his family, who said Hunt was treated differently because he was black.
“I don’t think anyone would have thought twice if it wasn’t someone with an afro,” said his mother, Susan Hunt, on Tuesday. Police say race wasn’t a factor.
Hunt was shot Sept. 10 as he walked around a strip mall in the Utah city of Saratoga Springs wearing a red shirt and blue pants similar to an anime character and a 2 ½ foot steel sword. Police said they were responding to a 911 call about a man with a sword when he lunged at them, swinging the weapon.
But his family says the sword was decorative rather than dangerous.
A narrative in the autopsy states an officer fired three shots when Darrien Hunt charged at him, swinging the sword, as the officer got out of his car. Darrien Hunt ran away and police fired four more times as they chased him, the report says. The autopsy found no drugs in his system.
An attorney for the Hunt family, Robert Sykes, disputed the officers’ account, saying a picture taken by a bystander shows Hunt smiling as he talked to two officers.
Tim Taylor, chief deputy at the Utah County Attorney’s Office, said Tuesday that Hunt talked to officers after they arrived, asking them for a ride.
The county attorney’s investigation into whether the shooting was legally justified could be complete within a week, Taylor said. He said the trajectory of the shots found by the autopsy indicates Hunt was turning away when they were fired, but investigators are still looking at exactly what happened during the encounter.
The autopsy shows four of the gunshots found in Hunt’s body traveled back to front. A fifth shot that struck his left arm appears to have come from the front and a sixth traveled downward after entering the back of his forearm.
“I think that means they were pursuing him, he was running away. He was probably sacred to death,” said Sykes.
Susan Hunt said she hopes the officers involved are held accountable, and barred from using firearms in the future.
The officers, who are white, have been identified as Cpl. Matthew Schauerhamer and Officer Nicholas Judson.
Saratoga Springs is an upscale city of 23,000 people south of Salt Lake City. About 93 percent of residents are white and fewer than 1 percent are black, according to U.S. Census figures.
