WARNING: In this video, you will see a man shot to death from a distance of 50 to 100 feet.

I’m really, really sorry. I normally wouldn’t post something this graphic, but I feel that the world needs to understand what the people of Ferguson are dealing with.

The man who was killed, Kajiemi Powell, was obviously at least emotionally unbalanced (you can hear him shouting “shoot me” repeatedly at the cops after they draw their guns—which they do almost immediately, since, you know, people who steal two cans of soda are among the most dangerous of petty criminals), but you can see that he poses no obvious threat. They kill him while he’s merely pacing around their perimeter. There were other ways of dealing with this situation, but because the cops don’t value black lives, they didn’t care enough to even consider them. Hell, they exit the car with their guns drawn. Because he stole two sodas.

I don’t even know what to say about this. It’s awful. I didn’t want to watch it. But it needs to be seen to dismantle the “the cops’ lives were in danger” narrative. That narrative is quite clearly bullshit.

It goes without saying that unless you want to really lose your shit, you shouldn’t venture into the comment thread on this video’s Youtube page. There’s some really nasty racism going on over there.

Cops have been put on notice: Let the cameras roll.

Camera-shy cops across the city were reminded they can’t legally take action to stop someone from filming them while they’re on the beat, the Daily News has learned. The refresher was provided in a memo the chief of department’s office distributed to all police commands Wednesday.

“Members of the public are legally allowed to record police interactions,” the memo states. “Intentional interference such as blocking or obstructing cameras or ordering the person to cease constitutes censorship and also violates the First Amendment.”

Cops can take action if videographers and shutterbugs “interfere with police operations,” the memo notes.

spread this like wildfire

when you see abuse, take out your phone and film that shit. 

Post it on youtube, send it to the news, let the whole world hear about it.
