It also said he had a graze wound on his right wrist. In the video leaked last week ... you can clearly hear 3 shots fired during the confrontation. The autopsy confirms Ahmaud was hit by all 3."

This is Los Angeles. You are watching a brutal cop from the @lapdhq repeatedly punch and maul an unarmed, non-violent, non-combative man. The victim is literally yelling out “what’s wrong with you.” Not only must he be fired, he needs to be charged with criminal assault. @mayorofla you need to intervene here, right away. Follow @grassrootslaw. We launch on Friday and will be taking these cases head on.

April 29, 1992 3 Days of the LA Rebellion ensued after Four Officers were acquitted in the savage beating of Rodney King.

During the Rebellion many shop and store owners, put signs of "Black Owned" to deter the people from destroying or looting on of their own. The rebellion destroyed 200 liquor stores who were vultures of our communities and damaged 1,573 buildings total. Many Korean shops were also targeted after the Murder of Latasha Harlings by a Korean Shopkeeper.

This PIG beating on a 14 year old ?!!
#FTP #PoliceTerrorism #OverseerOfficer #WarOnAfrikans

Yesterday a Rancho Cordova Police Officer used extreme excessive force on a 14 year old boy.

There is not one reason that validates a full size armed man, to sit on, punch, and try and break the arms of a child. Watching him push his head on the curb by his neck was traumatizing for me. Can’t imagine how this child feels right now.

We are in communication with the family and will share our steps as we take them.

Mumia Abu-Jamal is an award-winning Pennsylvania journalist who exposed police violence against minority communities. On death row since 1982, he was wrongfully sentenced for the shooting of a police officer. New evidence, including the recantation of a key eyewitness, new ballistic and forensic evidence and a confession from Arnold Beverly (one of the two killers of Officer Faulkner) points to his innocence! Mumia had no criminal record.

For 30 years, Mumia was locked up 23 hours a day, denied contact visits with his family, had his confidential legal mail illegally opened by prison authorities, and put into punitive detention for writing his first of seven books while in prison, Live From Death Row. On December 7, 2011, District Attorney Seth Williams announced his office's vacating of the death sentence and promised that Mumia would spend the rest of his life in prison.
April 3, 2012- Former death row inmate Mumia Abu-Jamal has lost his last legal appeal.

San Leandro Police Department in CA and again WALMART.....
Murdered another Black Man. Steven Taylor was having a mental breakdown... he had just a bat in his hand.. didnt hit anyone, and they murdered him !!

#StevenTaylor #PoliceTerrorism #FTP #JohnCrawford

🤬 This fatal police shooting at a @walmart in San Leandro, California in the Bay Area just did not have to happen. I spoke tonight to 3 people who knew this young brother, Chase, and they each said he was having a mental health emergency in this moment and clearly needed an ambulance. If he was white he would’ve likely gotten one. ⁣

Police around the world would’ve surrounded and contained this man until he could be taken to the hospital. I’ve literally studied the tapes and have seen it happen hundreds of times all over the world. ⁣

Repost from my brother @jamaltrulove⁣
・・・⁣
THE SAN LEANDRO POLICE DEPARTMENT JUST EXECUTED CHASE!! Pay attention to the sounds and his movement after!⁣

TASED: He bends over forward like he’s walking towards the officer, but he’s not, he’s being electrocuted so he doesn’t have control of his body fully. ———————————————————⁣
1st SHOOT; He’s shocked from the pressure of the bullet penetrating him and starts walking away (you can see the blood dripping). ——————————————————-⁣
HE DROPS THE BAT; As he walks away with his back turned after being TASED and SHOT!! ——————————————————⁣
2nd SHOOT; The officer shoots him in the back of the head and he drops. There’s little to no movement. ——————————————————-⁣
3rd SHOOT; The officer stands over him and shoots him again to make sure he’s dead!! 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡⁣
PLEASE CONNECT ME WITH HIS FAMILY SO I CAN CONNECT HIM WITH MY ATTORNEYS‼️ ALSO, WHOS READY FOR A F**K QUARANTINE PROTEST❓#F**KTHEPOLICE 🖕🏾

'Don't shoot him no more!' California police face backlash over killing of man in Walmart

"Police in San Leandro in the Bay Area shot Steven Taylor on Saturday afternoon after he wielded a baseball bat inside a local Walmart. A video shot by a bystander captured two officers pointing their weapons at Taylor holding a bat near the doors on the Walmart floor.

The footage appears to show one of the officers deploying a Taser after Taylor had dropped the bat on the floor and was lying on the ground. One witness is heard shouting, “Don’t shoot him no more!” Police said one of the officers hit Taylor with a bullet in the upper torso, and the officers tried to use their Tasers multiple times during the confrontation.

Lee Merritt, an attorney for Taylor’s family, said Taylor was going through a mental health crisis on Saturday afternoon, and that he has previously suffered from paranoid schizophrenia and bipolar depression. “He was shot after he had become completely helpless and no longer represented a threat,” Merritt told the Guardian on Monday."
