BREAKING: Cops Open Fire, Execute Citizen Who Ran in the Opposite Direction From Them
UPDATE (2/11/15): New Footage Emerges Showing Man Posed No Threat, Was Murdered
A new raw video has now been uploaded showing clearly that the man was running away from police.
According to some witnesses, he had thrown a rock earlier, but then “took off running” from the cops.
It appears from this footage that cops simply murdered him because they were mad that he threw a rock.
The footage clearly shows that he is unarmed and not fighting them, but rather trying to get away. Moments later, they execute him.
We must warn you, the video you’re about to see is graphic and could be pulled by YouTube any minute.
PASCO — Disturbing video footage has surfaced online showing police open fire on a citizen who appears to be running away from them.
The incident occurred Tuesday night in Pasco, Washington.
The citizen died at the scene after police fired multiple bullets into him.
According to witnesses at the scene, the man was suffering from a mental illness and had been throwing some small rocks on the street.
Some witnesses said that the man had punched an officer moments beforehand, and had a rock in his hands when he “took off running.”
When police showed up, the man can be seen behaving as if he were confused, and ultimately running away from them.
Rather than giving chase to the citizen, the officers are then seen firing their weapons.
The man’s body slumps to the ground, lifeless.
The identities of the three officers involved in the fatal shooting have not been released, and Police Captain Ken Roske would not specify who fired the shots.
Roske said that the “officers fired after the man refused to listen to their commands,” according to reports.
There have been no reports of any weapon found at the scene.
We are waiting for more details, but as far as the video footage shows, this appears to be a confused citizen who was running in fear from the police, moments before they execute him.
They then appear to place the citizen’s dead body in handcuffs.
No doubt the cops will claim that they “feared for their lives,” as police are trained to say in shooting deaths in order to avoid conviction.
The officers are due to be placed on paid leave.
This article will be updated as more details become available.
