    This story is a COMPLETE LIE!! This young who was executed walked off (yes) and was not detained by an officer but shot too death in his back by the officer. How can you cruel officers rest at night knowing you took a life that didn’t point a gun at you!

    Thought this was going to be another “he ran with the gun but suddenly turned and pointed it at the cops shootings ” but I see they changed the narrative this time!

    Yeah ok. How do these thugs sleep at night gunning down their own community members. Do you think he was toting a pistol to plant flowers with it?? Good riddance. Somebody called the police on him for a reason. He apparently made it known he had a gun on him. There are consequences to living your life like a violent idiot. He paid the price. Glad no one else did that night.

    Maybe in another dimension, law enforcement is honorable and has integrity, where the benefit of doubt can be given. In this world and with law enforcement’s history, the question should be asked how they can lie so often and keep a straight face?
