VIDEO: Liberal Media Just Found Their Next ‘Ferguson’ Media Circus
Guest Post by Mara Zebest
Why is it Liberals are always screaming for “full context” videos of the police actions, but never post videos that show the full context when Liberal thugs are attacking the police?
The video below picks up after the struggle is in progress—without showing what led up to this struggle. An officer is heard screaming “he’s going for my gun,” “he’s got a gun,” “drop the gun,” before another officer fires shots at the suspect. It should also be noted that some of the officers involved are black, and the protesters filming are calling these officers “sellouts.”
WARNING: NSFW LANGUAGE ALERT!
[…] Jose Gil, 38 , said he saw the man swinging at the police and then heard one of the officers say, “Gun, gun, he’s got my gun!” before police fired multiple shots.
Another witness, who asked not to be identified, said the man punched and kicked the officers and reached for one of their service weapons before the officers fired at least seven times.
an area resident, who identified himself as Booker T. Washington, said police had come by repeatedly to ask Africa to take down his tent. People are allowed to sleep on the streets from 9 p.m to 6 a.m., but they are supposed to remove their tents in the daytime, under a court agreement.
“This man got shot over a tent,” Washington said. (read more)
The Daily Caller also weighs in with the following:
As one officer is trading punches and struggling with the man, he drops his police baton. A woman picks it up and the officer yells out “give me my stick.”
At that point, two officers move towards the woman and throw her on the ground and handcuff her.
The officer was on top of the man, and the struggle continued. A Taser was deployed, but the man continued to struggle. The officer is then heard saying what sounds like “he’s going for my gun” or “drop the gun.”
Five shots ring out as the officers back away and hold their weapons on the motionless man. It is unclear if the same officer fired all of the shots or if other officers began firing after the initial shot.
After the shooting, a crowd gathered behind the cameraman grows agitated. […]
The homeless man, who the Los Angeles Times reported goes by the name “Africa,” died at the hospital.
LAPD spokesman Sgt. Barry Montgomery told the Times that officers were in the area responding to a robbery call.
One witness, 29-year-old David Horne, told the Times that Africa had been fighting with someone in a tent when officers intervened. They used a Taser on him in order to drag him out of the tent. That’s when the fight ensued.
