The clip above is from the local news station here in Los Angeles. (KTLA) The video shows a Police Officer detaining an individual then while he order the guy to stand up shot him 3 times on his back. Is hard to comprehend how someone who has their hands in full view and identify him self as Service Man on leave was threat to the police officer. I am just happy that the victim survive the shots.
I am also concern of this incident being turn into a race issue. Yes the cop was white and the victim hispanic. But, I don’t think people should try and argue this with race. Is just cop with history of being abusive going to far and almost killing another person.
Living in a city that is currently going through some Race Issues between minorities. I don’t want it to get worse by groups trying to dipict this as a White Cop going crazy on a Hispanic man.
