Black man killed by cops

PRESS TV  Posted July 10, 2016

An African American man has been shot and killed by police amid massive protests over the killings of two other black men in the US this week.

Alva Braziel, 38, (pic above) was shot and killed by two police officers in Houston, Texas on Saturday morning, according to the Houston Police Department.

The officers said that the man was holding a revolver and did not listen to their orders until they shot him multiple times.

Police spokeswoman Jodi Silva said that the officers got out of their patrol vehicle to talk to the man and ordered him to lower the weapon.

“He instead deliberately and slowly lowers his arm and allows it to come to a stop at his waist,” Silva said. “Now the gun is pointed directly at officers.”

Officers then shot the man, who did not fire his gun. He died at the scene.

A neighbor said that police are targeting black men in the area.

“It’s like we got a target on our back even if we’re innocent, it hurts,” said Eric Puckett, a bystander. “You don’t even want to walk outside your house any more. But to all the young black men and young black women out there, all black people, do something positive.”

The new shooting happened after 37-year-old Alton Sterling was fatally shot by police in the southeastern city of Baton Rouge, Louisiana On Tuesday and 32-year-old Philando Castile was shot dead Wednesday by a police officer near St. Paul, Minnesota.

Since the shootings, there have been numerous ‘Black Lives Matter” protests in different cities in the United States.

Here are some Press TV comments:

While Alva Braziel does not look like the sharpest tool in the shed, was it necessary to shoot him multiple times? Was there no non lethal way to deal with this situation?

Was it really that necessary to say that first part I agree with you with the rest

I am not Zionist Politically Correct, I call the shots as I see them. The Odds of you being

Murdered by the Police in The U.S.A. are double or tripled if your skin is a darker color, so playing around with a gun, in front of Cops like Mr. Alva Braziel did is not something his own Mother would have approved of.

Dumb is Dumb, regardless of Race or Color.

If you live in a country or state where they allow you to carry guns to protect your lives from other citizens, well only the stupid would call this a civil society and these same people (USA) are responsible for most of the killings of innocent people across the globe in their murderous wars.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
