Looks a lot like target practice, doesn't it?
The San Francisco Police Department has given a name to the man they shot in the Bayview yesterday.
He was Mario Woods, 26, a resident of the city. And he's dead because 10 cops couldn't think of anything to do on finding him but shoot him.
And as naturally as night follows day, they've released everything they've got that would make him out to be a bad dude, someone who deserved to be surrounded by drawn guns and executed by a firing squad. I find their story a little thin, but here it is.
According to the Chron:
The cops nailed him for that one, got him labelled a "gang member," and he served about four years. He got out in 2014. The lawyer in that proceeding described him as "never aggressive." A Bayview neighbor described the man he knew:
Okay, so opinions about Woods differ. But he's still dead by police shooting. Officers decided he had to go -- and he's gone.
