Philadelphia cops fatally shot Walter Wallace Jr. today, firing 10+ times at him while he stood at least 10ft away. He allegedly had a knife but cops made NO attempts at de-escalating the situation in this video. They went straight to killing Wallace in front of his loved ones!

Video in link.
So, why even have tasers? Aren't they meant for literally this situation?

If Wallace was in his right mind (not a guarantee), it was absolutely idiotic for him to approach law enforcement with a knife.
At the same time, I wish law enforcement stopped him without killing him.


Firing 10+ illustrates no intent to capture. 10 feet is taser range. There's a common denominator, race. Unfortunately, because Wallace had a weapon nothing will happen to the officers. Victim blaming. None of the officers that discharged their weapons were Black?
you can't be serious.


Very serious. I will not engage with a troll. Have to add, though feeling I may be reprimanded, A racist troll." Have a nice day.

.1 nano

It's a damn shame. Why people won't believe Blacks are treated differently by LEO is unfathomable. A Black man would have been shot immediately. Not once, not twice, not three times, at least 10 times.

Authorities in Ohio have identified a long-time Franklin County Sheriff's deputy as the law enforcement officer who shot and killed a Black man in Columbus last Friday.

Reporter Paige Pfleger of member station WOSU reported Monday that Goodson's concealed carry license was current, according to documentation provided by family attorneys.


My brother literally walked across the yard, walked into the back fence to get to the side door, had his subway [sandwich] and mask in one hand keys in the other, UNLOCKED AND OPENED THE DOOR and stepped in the house before" he was shot, Harper wrote.

In a statement, Walton + Brown, the law firm representing Goodson's family, said the shooting was witnessed by Goodson's 72-year-old grandmother and two toddlers. The firm said Goodson was returning home from a dentist appointment.

"Everything about him was about abiding by the law and in terms of having a gun, he was licensed to do so,"

Heather Johnson, a friend of the Goodson family, who also spoke with The Columbus Dispatch, said he had no criminal history and described him as a family man.

"Casey was 23 years old, he never had any type of crimes. He was good, he worked at the Gap, he loved his family," Johnson told the paper. "He just enjoyed being a big brother and enjoyed being with his family, he loved them very much."

Shameful and disgraceful message our country is sending about how our justice system works here in America. When people talk about systemic racism, here is a perfect example.

AMEN!

The storming of the Capital is a blatant example of a double standard being applied. If the stormers had been people of color there would have been blood.
