1/ On 02.10.19, a 911-call was made, reporting a black man fell asleep in his car & blocked a Taco Bell's drive through. Six polices showed up, w/ guns in hands & minutes later, estimated over 25 rounds were shot & killed the black man. #LetUsLive #AB392
2/ . The body-cam finally is released to reveal that the 6 officers was not trying figure out how wake this black man up, how to get his attention, but rather, get ready to “snatch his ass [out of the car]”, & “If he reaches for it, you know what to do”. Basically, shoot him!
3/ Full disclosure, a gun was sitting on this black’s man lap. But does that mean illegal? No. And if this man was asleep, worrying about him grabbing it before the six police officers who already have guns in their hands in ready position is reasonable? Probably not!
4/ Our current law has a minimum legal requirement to allow police officers to pull out their guns & hold against the civilian. THIS “REASONABLE” LAW HAS NOT CHANGED SINCE 1872. Back when our law enforcement still rode horses!
5/ The victim’s brother told the reporter that, “the public would finally see the video, but was not confident it would lead to justice.” Black men are being shot all the time that our hearts are no longer crying out of astonishment, anger & frustration, and now simply crying.
6/ Our police are not being held for their actions. Tonight, if an intruder entered your house, you pulled a gun to defend yourself & killed that intruder. The burden of proof for your innocence is on you. You may even have to stand trial to prove it. But the police won’t!
7/ Please support #AB392, introduced by the @DrShirleyWeber. This bill is aimed to update that “reasonable” law to “necessary” law. One tiny word can change all the contexts of these police shooting incident. It will now place the burden of proof on the police’s actions.
8/ AB392 is asking that if the officer failed to go through the thoughtful process as mentioned above, if a life was taken “unnecessarily”, it should be dealt with consequences, instead of leaving us with just another news article
9/ What you can do is contact your Assemblymembers in CA and ask them to support #AB392. Ask them to be brave & stand up for what is right.
