It was Tuesday and this is in modern America. Walter Williams DeLeon, age 45, was waving a towel and apparently seeking aid and assistance from the police. As he approached a police car, the cops decided that he was “approaching them in an aggressive manner.” So, what else to do but blast away at this threatening man? They did shout before shooting, “drop the gun.” There is a problem, if one does NOT have a gun it is rather difficult to drop what one does not possess.
Some police now believe that he was injured and in distress. Oh,after the shooting they placed handcuffs on his hand as he lay there bleeding.
Only in America do police ASSUME that any act by a person represents a “THREAT” to their safety. The man must have been hurt and the towel was simply being used to halt some bleeding. The good news is that he was a white man which goes to prove that cops are an equal opportunity group.
