Cop Shoots and Kills Unarmed Deaf, Mute Man as He Tries to Communicate Using Sign Language via http://ift.tt/2bdRQ2w
You shouldn’t expect to die when dealing with another person, whoever they are.
The police need alternatives to respond with. I don’t blame the State Trooper here. He had limited resources and a VERY limited set of options he was allowed to respond with.
It’s systemic. If you should expect to die when dealing with law enforcement, then there’s a problem with the way we do law enforcement.
I’m not saying we should replace guns with bananas here either, by the way. But I know that *I’d* rather walk away with a broken arm and an “oops, sorry dude”, then ceasing to exist.
