John T. Williams was gunned downed on the streets of Seattle on August 30, 2010. His killer, Ian Birk, gave the 50 year old, partially deaf man carrying a 3 inch pocket knife approximately 5 seconds to drop his knife (an order he likely didn’t hear) before shooting him 4 times in the side and back. The shooting was ruled unjustified by a fire arms review committee.
Of course, one of the main functions of police in society (when not pulling you over for minor traffic violations) is to contain the underclasses through systematic violence. But they won’t fuck with us for much longer.
