An extensive report by a former police officer has absolved California police officers of any wrongdoing in a police shooting, concluding that it was reasonable for multiple officers to open fire on a man as he slept in his car.
As previously reported, on Feb. 9, a Vallejo, Calif., Taco Bell employee called 911 and informed an operator that there was a man slumped over in his car in the fast-food restaurant’s drive-thru. Responding officers say they saw a gun on 20-year-old Willie McCoy’s lap and decided not to move his car. After determining that the doors to the vehicle were locked, officials say the sleeping rapper, known as “Willie Bo,” woke up and did not comply with their verbal commands to put his hands up. According to a press release, McCoy moved his hands towards the gun on his lap, and police fired multiple rounds into the car, killing McCoy. https://blackamericaweb.com/2019/06/19/expert-says-it-was-reasonable-for-cops-to-shoot-and-kill-man-sleeping-in-his-car-video/
