Police officers shot and killed a robbery suspect outside a home.
Police had been watching the man in a home. He was suspected in an armed robbery of an ice cream store, according to police.
Police used a PA system in an effort to negotiate the man’s surrender.
The man came outside and “refused to comply with police orders,” according to spokeswoman Monique Cotton.
Witnesses saw 10 officers converge on the home. One of the officers tried to talk the man out of the house, telling him to come out.
The man walked outside with an “expressionless stare” as officers yelled “Drop it! Drop it!” According to one witness.
Police officers then fired multiple shots killing the man.
“At some point the officers believed their safety and the safety of the community was at risk,” said Police Chief Frank Straub.
Police are not identifying the man.
A handgun was found nearby. But who was to say if he was armed when shot. The SWAT team was on the way because the suspect was known to be armed.
So basically this guy was killed over an expressionless stare, since the police assumed he was armed they are able to murder suspects at will.
Why not use covert means and wait for the man to leave and use a simple traffic stop? Because they want to play soldier and kill citizens.
