Police in Texas shot an unarmed man 41 times, then turned around and confiscated another manís camera after he started taking photos and shooting video of the bloody aftermath.
Dallas-area cops then deleted the manís footage before returning the camera four days later.
Now police from two agencies are vowing to do a ďcomplete investigation,Ē which, of course, means we will hear nothing more about the August 31 incident for at least several months.
But so far, the partial investigation has determined that Garland police officer Patrick Tuter lied in his initial report when he claimed that suspect Michael Vincent Allen backed his truck into the patrol car, causing the cop to fear for his life and leaving him no choice but to fire 41 times, meaning he reloaded at least once.
Miraculously, a 20-year-old unarmed woman who was sitting in the cab of the pick-up truck emerged unscathed.
According to the Dallas Morning News, Mesquite police officers confiscated the witnessís camera:
ďFrom the time they yelled, ĎGet out, get out,í they didnít give him three seconds to get out,Ē Mitchell Wallace said, adding that he counted about 20 bullet holes in Allenís truck.Mesquite police are conducting the criminal investigation, which hopefully includes whether or not Tuter acted lawfully, and Garland police are conducting the internal investigation.
