Cops kill Black father in Canton, Ohio

Police footage of shooting of James R.Williams, 46


Out of the blue, he said he got shot, he got hit,” Ms. Williams told The Repository. “I don’t know where it came from. Nobody said anything. They didn’t say, ‘Police.’ They didn’t say, ‘Freeze.’ They didn’t say, ‘Drop your weapon.’ They just shot him.”

She said Mr. Williams had four daughters, ranging in age from 9 to 15, and two stepdaughters.

“He’s going to be dearly missed,” she told the paper. “He shouldn’t have died the way that he did. I just want justice for him.”

To my untrained eye it looks like the officer fires his weapon through the fence and kills the man in his own yard, and then says ”Police”. an expert interviewed said that if the officer felt his life was in danger the shooting is justified. The man was firing into the air on New Year’s Eve which is of course illegal yet not a capital offense. And I noted that I use the plural “cops “rather than “officer”.
