Graphic video shows man dying after being shot by San Francisco police
In this dramatic video from the weekend, a man dies in a pool of his own blood as he lies on the sidewalk surrounded by San Francisco police.
A crowd of onlookers lets the officers know they think the cops fucked up.
Here's the story from AP:
Authorities said Kenneth Harding, 19, was killed Saturday after firing at officers who were trying to cite him for light-rail fare evasion. The shooting occurred during a foot chase in the Bayview-Hunters Point area.
Harding had recently been released from Washington state prison after he served time for convictions stemming from a King County sex offense.
San Francisco police Chief Greg Suhr said Sunday the man who had been killed by officers was a person of interest in last Wednesday's killing of 19-year-old Tanaya Gilbert in South Seattle. Family members said Gilbert was several weeks pregnant.
The video, though, tells a story of distrust of the police and a history of racism.
As the angry and upset crowd gathers around the cops at the scene of the shooting, you can hear onlookers say "Fuck the police", "Where the gun at?", and "The police shot him, and they gonna get away with this shit too."
