Cops Shoot Innocent Citizen in the Back and Charge Him With “Assault” After He’s Paralyzed

Fort Worth, TX — An innocent man was shot in the back by police, arrested, charged with assaulting THEM, is now paralyzed for the rest of his life — and police call this justice.

After David Collie watched the video of a Fort Worth police officer assault and arrest an innocent mother and her children who called police after her 7-year-old son was choked by a neighbor, he decided to release the video of his encounter with Fort Worth cops.

“Unfortunately, what we’ve seen from the Fort Worth police officer in that video is not an isolated incident. Many members of our community have been assaulted, handled roughly by Fort Worth police officers,” Collie’s attorney, Nate Washington said. “To be clear, we believe the vast majority of police officers are good and decent people.”

The terrifying video shows police officers pull up to Collie’s apartment complex, get out of their cruiser, and immediately shoot him in the back. One officer is seen holding a blinding flashlight on Collie while another ‘fears for his life’ and squeezes off a round, severing Collie’s spine.

Police were looking for two armed men that night, who allegedly robbed someone they met online to purchase an item. However, Collie did not fit the description, notes his attorney.

According to police, Collie walked away from them and refused their commands to put his hands up. Officers then claim that Collie pulled out a silver box cutter and pointed it at them. Fearing for his life, the Fort Worth police officer shot him in the lower torso, according to the Fort Worth statement.
