NewsRescue– In the latest case of trigger-eagerness by US cops, who seem to now operate on a kill first and reduce inmates principle, a 24 year old man, Jonathan A. Ferrell who survived a car wreck was shot dead by North Carolina cops at 2.30am.
Apparently the man or someone else had gone to a lady’s house and rang her bell. The lady suspecting the individual had called the cops, who getting there saw the man approaching them. The cops first tazered the man. When he continued coming to them for help, they shot him dead with multiple shots.
A wrecked car was found nearby with shattered back window. The unarmed man is believed to have climbed out of the badly wrecked car and was possibly hurt and looking for a phone to call for help.
Over-population of US prisons and the legal costs of prosecuting cases has been proposed to be a reason why police shoot to kill at the slightest provocation.
