BREAKING VIDEO: Cops Execute Unarmed Mentally Ill Man In the Street

Capture

LOS ANGELES — A viral video has surfaced online showing LAPD officers literally executing an unarmed homeless man in the street.

The video was first posted on Facebook and has been spreading like wildfire, causing outrage in cities across the nation.

The unedited raw footage shows about 5-8 officers swarming around a homeless man, throwing him to the ground, punching him, and Tasing him.

Desperate, the homeless man tried to protect himself against the aggressive beating.

At one point in the video the homeless man can be seen trying to counter-punch an officer in the hopes of defending himself.

The homeless man went by the name “Africa” and has a history of debilitating mental illness.

Without shelter and adequate medical care, he had been trying to survive on the streets and getting to know others in the homeless community.

At one point in the video, an officer pulls out his gun, aims at Africa, and begins firing at him.

Africa was lying on the ground at this point, but the officer continued firing bullets into Africa’s body until he died.

Witnesses became enraged and began shouting at the police, to which the police responded with even more threats and intimidation.

One witness can be heard yelling, “He ain’t got no gun!” confirming that Africa was unarmed.

The whole incident began when Africa became involved in a dispute with someone in his tent.

Police arrived and commanded Africa to exit his tent.

When he refused, they pulled him out and began Tasing him, according to witnesses — at which point the video begins.

One witness can be heard calling the cops “Cowards,” telling them to put aside their guns and try fighting like men.

Instead, the cops kept their guns pointed and continued screaming at witnesses to “move!”

Protests have already erupted and crowds are gathering right now in front of the police headquarters in Los Angeles.

The protests are expected to intensify as word of the tragedy spreads.

    Put every officer on the end of a rope and hang them until their eyes pop from their heads and their necks stretch. Then leave them in the trees as a warning for other corrupt rogue murderous cops and their superiors.

      I LIKE IT, but, I’d rather see them released into general population in a state prison. I promise you the other inmates would give them exactly what they deserve

      Next time someone hits you with the false narrative of police brutality give them this. As of the end of 2012 there were about 313,910,000 people in the US and about 670,439 police officers. About 2.5 cops per 100 people. So cops are about .22% of the population. In performance of their duties the will come in contact with about 17% of the population. And subsequently arrest less than 4% of the population, and this assumes that no single person was arrested more than once in that year (not likely but I am giving you a break). So in a year 670,439 have contact with 53,050,790 people any of whom can file an excessive force complaint. Now these contacts can be anything from citations to interviewing as a witness, call for service, directions, involved in an accident, victim of a crime. Of all those MILLIONS of contacts the DOJ says there were 26,000 complaints of excessive force. equating to 0.049% of all police contacts. Of those complaints only 8% were sustained, meaning having any merit or evidence. That is around 2080 sustained complaints or 0.0039% of all law enforcement contacts. So to put it in context, in the same time period 84,376 people complained of being raped. 30,300 were killed in traffic accidents, 14,827 people were murdered. So in regards to “TRUE EXCESSIVE FORCE” by the police you are in fact 7X more likely to be murdered, 15X more likely to die in the burning wreck of what used to be your car, and 42X more likely to be raped, probably not by a cop. So my advise is simple resist not worry not and do your homework before you try to push the false narrative.

      • So What

        Source?!! Otherwise you’re just a shiny crackpot trying to lick boots…I don’t believe any of those stats as cops these days are being arrested time after time for pedophilia and rape. You’re full of shit and so are your numbers unless you can prove a respectable source? Which is highly unlikely as it looks as though you wanted to sound smart and babble while doing it

        • John

          The source is the DOJ.

          • So What

            Then copy and paste DOJ and lets see the research…

          • John

            Funny I have asked you for links and you tell me look it up. And usually with a snarky remark . But you can just go to the DOJ web sight I am sure with your Superior intellect and far left stance you can find it if you want. But you don’t want do you? Hey look I am fine with being a sheepdog I understand the reason that you sheep hate us, is because we are a constant reminder the wolf is out there. I also know you wouldn’t last a week on the street and thats fine. But unless you are out there on the line at least seeing it first hand you should just go back to your room like the angry young man from the Billy Joel song. Because you havn’t got a clue about what you are talking about. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152874332243052&set=a.40793278051.52947.690848051&type=3&theater

      • Scott

        Your just regurgitating that thin blue line video. Those statistics come from the same group of people who do not want the public to know of all the corruption. Your a fool if you believe what they feed you. How about this statistics, in the last ten years police have killed more Americans than both Iraq and Afghanistan Wars, FACT

      • interesting…

        Have you ever seen the videos of citizens all over the country trying to file complaints but being turned around at the door? Do yourself a favor and just do a search on youtube.com you’ll find TONS of them. Then we know what happens from there, they do an “internal investigation” and find all of it hearsay and un-provable because cops don’t lie right?

        • John

          Yes I get all my news from you tube.

          • So What

            Videos don’t lie. People do. You’re an idiot John

          • John

            Yup like this video shows the man has the cops gun. Oh and by the way he was wanted by the US Marshall’s service also. http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/officers-la-skid-row-death-training-mentally-ill-29345732

          • So What

            Being wanted is no reason to justify murder. BTW… Other released video shows contradiction to him grabbing a gun. Now the LAPD is using a different excuse for their behavior. Get on a rope John and make sure you tie that noose around your neck extra tight so your eyes pop when you hang

          • John

            True being wanted does not justify murder. However grabbing an officers gun does. Just ask the Gentle Giant. And it does however help explain his actions. He was a violent criminal who did not want to go back to jail. The stills of the video show him grabbing the gun. And remember videos don’t lie right?

          • So What

            Bwahahahahahahahaha… You still hanging on to that BS cops claim? Like I said John, get on a rope beside them and make sure you tie your noose extra tight.

          • John

            Oh it’s not a claim at all it’s on tape. You must be extremely upset that the DOJ cleared Officer Wilson. Not only cleared him but vindicated him and proved the whole hands up don’t shoot thing was pure B/S.

          • So What

            Put yourself on the end of a rope

          • John

            Naaa Gonna wait to watch the riots. I wonder when Michael Brown’s mom and her boyfriend will be charged with the felony assault and battery and armed robbery charges for the incident they were involved in?

  • Mitch Mitchell

    Fucking murderers need some of their own medicine.

  • Curtis Corse

    The level of police cowardice sickens me. They gang up on a homeless man and start beating him to a pulp. When he tries to defend himself, the cops murder him. They probably knew they were being filmed but they just don’t care. They know that they’ll get away with this cold blooded murder. How much does anyone want to bet that the cops will be cleared of any wrongdoing? When are citizens going to stand up and demand that the police stop investigating themselves? We need independent investigators looking into allegations of police wrongdoing so that things like this can’t be ignored. We also need to have laws that punish law enforcement officers more harshly for breaking laws they’ve sworn to uphold. Rampant police corruption, lack of any sense of morals and police ignoring citizens’ rights are going to lead to a full scale revolt against the police. Are the powers that be really so blind that they don’t see a revolt coming?

    • jy kelly

      LOOK, they will do an investigation of themselves and find they did NOTHING wrong.. Every cop knows when he puts on his magic uniform he can get away with anything, including murder….

    “…. black police showing out for the white cop!”

  • Woodstuck

    Every assifer is trained in those phrases to promote justification (lie loud and proud). Just like every arrest where you see a victim NOT resisting while the entire time some cop is shouting “stop resisting” and use this lie in their arrest statements to protect their guilty asses instead of us civilians (while they continue to beat an innocent person) – Cops are now guilty by association – You know, kinda like you police and “profiling” – Same concept.

    • Gary Williams Jr.

      and this “danger” they say they are in, is of their own doing! it is they, who have created this atmosphere. cops used to be looked up to, and trusted. the only people that used to call them “pigs” was criminals. but these days, most of the public has grown to hate them, and have nothing but mistrust, and contempt for them, and the entire “profession”. as I’ve said before, if the alleged “good cops” value their safety, then they better stop lying, to protect the “bad cops”, because we the people are getting fed up with their shit. the fact that cops commit these atrocious crimes isn’t where the real insult, and injury lay. the real insult is the fact that they are so arrogant, and brazen about it, because they KNOW THAT ALL COPS, both “good, and bad cops” will lie, and threaten to protect them. and these judges are even more despicable, because they also lie, and pass bullshit judgments allowing them to skate, no matter what the crime

      • John

        Ya you are right. It’s the cops who put all those degenerate scum bags out there on the street. Yup it’s all there fault all right. Those cops egged that guy on to slap the crap out of the pregnant women. That same pregnant women who when the cops came to her aid picked up a dropped baton and went after the very people who stopped her from getting he arse whooped. but here are some facts for you to chew on. Next time someone hits you with the false narrative of police brutality give them this. As of the end of 2012 there were about 313,910,000 people in the US and about 670,439 police officers. About 2.5 cops per 100 people. So cops are about .22% of the population. In performance of their duties the will come in contact with about 17% of the population.

          you believe what you want. cops and the “justice” system are out of control, and we the people are sick of it

    • John

      And you were trained at what police academy again??

      • Woodstuck

        Academy – I laugh. I look at the reality of what I see… POLICE are paid liars. Uniformed gangs with no accountability. POLICE = Professionally Organized Liars In Criminal Escapades (period).

        • John

          Really I told a guy to move his car. He complained and they had a 1 year IAD investigation. The complaint came back unfounded, but they accidentally sent his notification letter to me. It said he has the right to have the complaint re-opened and it will be filled in my jacket, even though it was B/S and could be randomly re-opened at anytime.

  • Billy Hudson

    You can ignore most of the rhetoric from the author of this article as the video evidence does not show the incident occurred as the author states. Quit focusing on what a few people are claiming happened and actually watch the video.

    • SickOfTheStupid

      I did and it was clearly a execution…………….

  • Clive

    You can see a complete and total lack of remorse for having just killed a human being on every single cop’s face. They literally don’t care that they caused this situation.

  • Annoyed by people hating cops.

    This “mentally ill” man had the officers gun, the first round was fired when he was struggling to get the gun BACK from the “mentally ill” man, the other shots were from the other officers.

  • Sex Kitten Party

    I’d give anything to watch ISIS burn these fuckers alive

  • Tamra Louviere

    So sick of these worthless pieces of shit.

  • Sex Kitten Party

    Before cop block really really took off, you’d see articles about police brutality and see some hateful comments towards cops, but most defended the cops actions. Now you see comment after comment after comment from people expressing their sheer hatred and disgust for the pigs. More and more people are finally beginning to recognize the pigs for what they are…vile, repugnant, pieces of shit. What a waste of a perfectly good abortion this dude is

  • John

    Clean shoot the women was lucky she didn’t get shot when she grabbed up the baton. But Que the riots in 3 2 1

  • malcolmkyle

    We no longer need these killers; it would be far safer if we police ourselves. They’ve always been corrupt anyway.

  • DeeKay

    As a Christian I should say God have mercy on their souls. But as a human being my heart says I hope they all burn in Hell. So, instead I’ll ask God to have mercy on my own soul for feeling such hatred towards these murderers.
