A deputy intent on citing a group of men for jaywalking shot a suspect who fled the scene in the back multiple times, then stood over him and executed him with what his family's lawyer described as "a coup de grace kill shot."
The deputy claimed in his incident report the alleged jaywalker pulled a gun on him and pointed it at him, yet newly released surveillance video appears to contradict his report as it shows the man fleeing from the deputy almost immediately, additionally he never took one shot, and ABC News reports the man's family says the weapon found on their son did not contain his fingerprints. (See this video on the routine practice of "drop weapons.")
The family of a 20-year old man a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy shot and killed two years ago says surveillance video released a few weeks ago but made public Friday shows a different story of what happened.I'd say the story the video shows is clear, the deputy pulls some men over for the "crime" of jaywalking, one of the suspected jaywalkers flees from the deputy immediately, at which point the deputy chases him down and shoots him in the back multiple times, before finally walking over to him and executing him at close range.
According to the deputy, the man allegedly pulled his gun on the deputy and aimed it at him, then rather than shoot him, chose to run away, and he did this all this over an alleged jaywalking violation.
If the deputy thought the man was such a threat, why did he chase him down and shoot him as he fled?
Why didn't the suspect shoot "his" alleged gun even once?
Why were his fingerprints allegedly not found on his gun?
A few days ago we reported on a similar story out of Prince George's County, Maryland where a police officer claimed he was assaulted by a teen, yet the video showed it was the cop who assaulted the teen, he simply lied about what occurred on his police report. In this case, the deputy's only claim to justify this shooting was the man supposedly pulling a gun on him before running away and not shooting, this video strongly appears to contradict that report.
[Correction: The deputy shot at the fleeing man's back six times, and shot at him seven times total, but he only hit him four times. This article was updated September 18th to correct this error.]
