I posted this as a response to another article below, but wanted to make sure people see my account, as I spoke to about 15 people in the area, citizens, local workers, etc...
Been a long time since I've seen people this angry. here's hoping that Potter earns our respect with a forceful response. Foxworth should be gone. I did have a chance to give the police chief a few words of advice...
Anyhow, consensus story is that it was an older black man, who had a knife in his pants or shirt but was not brandishing it. Ran at an office, may have moved his hand towards his pocket. The office he ran at shot him, and so did two other officers in the vicinity. Five shots, three officers.
And then, after he was down and dead, they cuffed him.
Later on, as citizens milled about, many residents of the nearby hotels, there were a lot of angry words yelled at the officers. One man who was apparently particularly angry (lots of f-bombs), was tackled by an officer, three others joined him (one may have drawn a weapon), and four other officers got behind that mob. This was around 10 AM.
Don't be fooled, people. The cops are trying to make this a police state. If Potter doesn't make a big statement soon, we should hold him accountable on the streets.
