Black Indianapolis man shot by cops after calling police to report robbery
Early Tuesday in Indianapolis, an African-American woman was being carjacked in front of her home in her working class neighborhood. She ran back in the house, told her husband, who is also black, and they called the police to report the robbery. That seemed to be the right and safe thing to do.
As the police pulled up, the husband, who was later identified as 48-year-old Carl Williams, opened the garage to their home and was immediately shot in the gut by police.
They claim they believed he was the robber and that because he had a firearm of his own, he was shot in self-defense.
He, of course, was not the robber. In fact, police have yet to even say if they caught the robber. Since they dusted the car for fingerprints, it appears that the actual man committing a crime got away and the man who wanted to protect his wife and family was instead shot and currently fighting for his own life in the hospital.
They tried to kill an innocent homeowner who was trying to protect his wife, his family! But cops are just so quick to use deadly force!
Tell me how, HOW can we trust the cops! They kill everyone they see!
When it comes to firearms, cops and human life, there is no place to “accidents”, there is competence and negligence.
