Happening in Crown Heights section in Brooklyn, Montgomery and Utica to be exact, responding to calls that a man was pointing a gun at people, when they arrived at the scene a man fitting the description started taking a ‘shooting a stance’ and INSTEAD of ‘seeing what he had, the police opened fire, and killed him. Of course the community is not digesting this well as they shouldn’t…. Yes this young man should NOT be pointing FAKE guns at people walking down the street, BUT the police should NOT be automatically killing people because they’re not sure what’s going on… aren’t they trained? Shouldn’t they have a nerve of steel? Are they not hired to PROTECT and SERVE???
