The homie Tad sent me this article about the recent shooting of 25 year-old Michael Cho at the hands of the Orange County, CA police department.
The whole thing just sounds really vague and shady. The guy was an artist who was accused of vandalism, spray painting buildings or something. Does that warrant officers killing him, filling him with 10 bullets? He was waving a “tire iron” at them apparently “ready to attack.” Why not use non-lethal means like pepper spray?
My boy Greg’s been doing a great job of covering some recent shootings at the hands of cops in the Bay Area recently. It just makes me think that the non-lethal means that cops have at their disposal are saved for White folks, while people of color get bullets.
