Then there’s this. If the ASP folks already were chasing or looking for the cab and had a witness to point out the guy, then, AGAIN, why did one of them get in alleged stabbing range of the guy?!
Hey I need y´all to hear this about the situation today. The ma who got killed this evening was speeding on the interstate in a stolen cab and flew off the interstate. He spun off the road and hit my wife and me as we were driving. I checked on her and my dogs and I went to go check on him and he ran from me. I did not yell or threaten him because I could tell he wasn´t of right mind. I simply wanted to make sure nobody was hurt. He had committed a crime prior to hitting me from what I found that out when they came to tow the cab. I don´t condone him dying. I just want you all to know what happened prior to this incident.Benjamin Marcus

Just called my son in Little Rock, Arkansas on what I’ll call a parental hunch. He was almost in hysterics. He’d just seen the police kill a black man right in front of him. They’d already tazed the guy, whose only weapon was a small screwdriver. Now he is dead.Marlon Weems
