Long Beach police first claimed they shot and killed a man because he had “assaulted” an officer, which was promptly reported by the local media in Southern California.
Then as witnesses started coming forward, insisting they had shot him in the back, police claimed they shot and killed him because he had stepped out of the car with a “large wooden stick,” causing armed officers from multiple agencies to fear for their lives.
And then they claimed they shot him as he was walking away, but reaching into his waistband, causing them once again, to fear for their lives.
But when a witness who recorded the shooting posted the video on Youtube -- showing that the man was simply walking away with both hands in clear view when they shot him multiple times in the back -- they then claimed they had “an obstructed view”, so they really weren’t sure what was going on when they opened fire.
But obviously not so obstructed where they couldn’t strike their target from several yards away with a hail of gunfire.
