The visual content is graphically disturbing. The ease in which a life is lost, tossed like garbage, is shocking.
This is the shooting that occurred in north St.Louis in August, 2014. Well after Micheal Brown was killed. There is a longer version of this video. The man that was shot was 23, wandering around being odd (mental illness?). The photographer et al, were watching him and laughing. Not feeling threatened. I do not feel that there were no other options for the officers. But I am not a cop and I was not there.
De-escalation. Again, what happened to talking people down? Or at least trying? This reminds me of the child with the toy gun shot dead in Cleveland.
