It's the cops dash cam. You can see the guy walk by in the very beginning of the video.

Are you serious? When the fuck did this happen?

And this guy is a police officer? His first fucking move was to shoot and cops pride themselves on not wanting to shoot people???

What in the hell dude. Did this guy go to jail? If not did someone kill him?

Fuck it I'm going to Seattle and I'm going to yell at him to stop and when he doesn't I'm going to empty my 16 round clip in to his back.

Thats sick, that fucked my day up.

Think I saw that, there was slightly more to it than just jaywalking.

You can't see the shooting in the video, but you can hear it.

Seattle Police Officer Ian Birk's dashboard camera shows woodcarver John T. Williams apparently carving on a piece of wood as he walks in front of the patrol car. He's looking down and appears to be minding his own busine

Birk, a two-year veteran officer, follows Williams and yells.

"Hey. Hey. Hey. Put the knife down. Put the knife down. Put the knife down."

Then, five gunshots are heard in rapid succession.

From the time Birk makes initial contact by yelling "Hey," seven seconds passes before he fires.

Williams' friends say he likely did not hear Birk yelling.

"He was deaf in one ear, so he probably didn't understand what the officer was saying," said Lila Lewis.

Shortly after the shooting, you hear a female witness yell to Birk, "He didn't do anything."

Birk responds, "Ma'am, he had a knife and he wouldn't drop it."

Birk's attorney says Williams was a threat.

"He was walking around downtown Seattle. He was inebriated and he had an open knife in his hand," said attorney Ted Buck.

After the shooting, Birk tells another officer, "He had the knife open. I asked him to drop it multiple times. He turned towards me."

An inquest will decide if Birk acted too hastily. A preliminary police finding was that the shooting was not justified. Birk has been stripped of his gun and badge.
A judge ruled Thursday that the video should be made public. Buck argued that allowing the release of the video now could taint the memory of witnesses and their accounts of what they saw.
KING Television and The Seattle Times made asked for the release of the video through a Public Disclosure Request.  They argued in court that releasing the video is essential to ensuring that the inquest process is transparent.
Williams' family also asked that the video be released at this time. They pointed out that videotapes of some of Williams previous encounters with the police have already been released and show him in a negative light.





This has made me sad. I hate reading these stories.

This wasn't the cop's fault, did any of you fuckers even pay attention?

The subject wouldn't drop the knife, so the cop shot him.

Yes, I agree shooting was too much, tasing would've worked much better.

Hey, shit happens.

Next time you see a cop abuse video pay attention before coming up with assumptions.

Although the guy was deaf, but I doubt the cop knew that....

no...
you dee-dee-dum.

the guy was DEAF in one ear... COULDN'T HEAR... Cop... is a human... he has no particular rights to take control of people's lives.

If you think that he DOES, no life for you friend.
Maybe you should SMARTEN-UP, and not let other consciousness RULE yours or ANYONE ELSE'S LIFE.

Pfft, hahaha... assuming that anyone here didn't "Get it".

The guy walked by... and the cop ran up to him and shot him... practically. Did the guy come at the officer with a knife? No. Does the cop have rights to kill people to save his own hide from getting dirty? No. He is a cop... IT'S HIS JOB. If he gets stabbed "by accident by a deaf friendly drunk worker" then that is HIS JOB, not to "take out" any "subject" that makes his work harder then just SHOOTING ASSES TO SAVE YOUR OWN.

I can't... BELIEVE THIS NONSENSE.

Stuff like this is WHHHYYY there are criminals in the first place... GGGOOOOOODDD DAAAAMNEED

No shit, the only way to get rid of crime is to make less things humans do a crime.

Control and resistance.

Criminal activity, to me, is mugging and general forceful violence.

Don't need legislature to tell apart what is desperation and what is plain forced.
