There are conflicting reports coming out of San Francisco in reference to a thirty year old man who was shot by police Wednesday morning following an encounter with a co-worker at a nearby chocolate factory. The co-worker claims that the man attacked him without any provocation, cutting him with a box cutter as he defended himself. Then, the accused attacker fled with the person who suffered the unprovoked attack in pursuit.
Does this sound like an unprovoked attack or a distinct confrontation between two individuals that got out of hand? The person who claims to have been attacked without reason then says he pursued his attacker. Does this sound like the logical course that a person who has just been attacked, by what he is describing as a psycho, would follow?
Enter in the police. San Francisco Police Chief contends that the man who was running away was confronted by police officers and that he lunged at them with the box cutter, causing one of the officers to fire two rounds into him. The police then say they handcuffed him, after which he was rolled over, causing them to realize he was bleeding from his abdomen, inducing them to remove the handcuffs.
Now, if the man was coming at the police and was shot in the chest and abdomen at point blank range with a 9mm pistol, how did he wind up on his stomach?
A couple of witnesses said the man had been shot in the back while handcuffed. Considering the nature of entry and exit wounds, would not the mass of the hemorrhage be at the exit wound? Remember the police said they only discovered the wound after rolling the man over.
So I wonder, will the footage from the squad car camera and all the cameras that must be on that street, be released? There is definitely a big difference between being shot in the front while lunging and in the back while handcuffed. It will be interesting to see how this whole thing plays out.
If this man was handcuffed and then executed I guess it is safe to say that we are now living in the cold war era in East Germany.
God bless the Republic, death to the international corporate mafia, we shall prevail.
