Trigger Happy Cops (NYPD)

And Drum roll Please……………….. They killed another Black young man in NYC who was unarmed. They not only killed him, but shot the boy 20 times… All he had was a hairbrush! And he happens to be black. Coincidence??????? Nope it happens all too often. Read on………….. And you tell us.

NEW YORK (AFP) New York police shot and killed an 18-year-old youth armed with only a hairbrush, US media reported Tuesday. Khiel Coppin was shot late Monday after a violent confrontation with his mother, who had called police for help, according to The New York Times. While she was on the phone, Coppin screamed that he had a gun and was going to kill her, the paper said. When police arrived, Coppin had jumped out of a ground-floor window with something in his hand and was shot by officers on the street. Shot some 20 times, Coppin was handcuffed on the ground before being taken to a hospital where he died a short time later, television channel New York One reported. When the shooting stopped, police found that instead of a gun, Coppin was only holding a hairbrush. Two witnesses told the Times that one police officer shouted in vain at his colleagues to stop shooting.
