So the man appeared to be waving them down for help and he has a towel wrapped around his hand. Wouldn’t the first assumption in any sane country be that perhaps he has bound up an injury and needs medical assistance? Oh no of course not. Not on the land where your first thought is that everyone is waving guns around. Naturally someone pointing their extending a bandaged hand toward you is trying to kill you.
This shows how paranoid are American police. It seems that in the USA the police assume that everybody (non-white) has a gun in their hand. So they shoot everybody (non-white), particularly those seeking police assistance. Exactly what percentage of people that the police shot last year had guns in their hands?
It certainly seems that not having a gun in your hand doesn't protect you from the police. So are the police working for the NRA in promoting gun possession?
"The LAPD said on Saturday it was standard procedure to handcuff any suspect."
OK, he didn't have a gun (which would have been obvious to them - AFTER they shot him - since they were handcuffing him). For what crime is he "a suspect"? Waving down police for assistance? Or having a towel wrapped around his hand?
Maybe he is suspected for "police assisted suicide"?
