Graphic: Homeless Man Shot and Killed By LA Cops

Los Angelas Police strike again. Video released onto Facebook show the man clearly on the ground being asaulted when yells of "He's going for my gun or He has a gun" are suspiciously yelled followed by piercing gunshots and a man left dead  on the ground.

If I didn't know any better I would've sworn Samuel L. Jackson was at the scene with all the profanity that is heard.  Let's see if Justice will prevail in yet another case of "every 28 hours" a person of color is shot by police.

I've searched for the legitimate name of the person killed but was unable to find one. He deserves at least that much.


According to the LA Times, officers were responding to a report of an altercation at a homeless encampment on a downtown street this morning.
In the video, originally uploaded by a man named Anthony Blackburn, officers can seen wrestling with some of the homeless people, with two officers dropping their batons while tackling a woman. After one one woman picks up an officer’s dropped baton — with the officer shouting “You have my baton” — another officer can be heard yelling repeatedly,”He’s going for my gun!”

Five shots follow, with the man filming the incident repeatedly cursing before saying, “They just killed that man! Just shot that motherf*cking man like that.”
According to the Times, the fallen man seen on the ground with officers standing over him was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.
