Georgia Sheriffs Dept. Says Officer Who Shot Fleeing Man In The Head Was Justified In Shooting

Body camera video shows Georgia deputies tried to arrest a homeless man for loitering but the man fled and was shot in the head.

News outlets report video shows a Coweta County sheriff’s deputy spotted 34-year-old Nicholas Bolton sleeping in a vehicle parked outside a Newnan shopping center Sunday. Deputies are seen knocking on a car window and trying to speak to Bolton, who drives off.

Deputies give chase and pin Bolton’s still-reeving vehicle between three cruisers. The sound of spinning tires is heard as deputies yell for Bolton to stop. He’s then shot by Deputy John Collins, who said he feared his colleague was going to be run over. Bolton was hospitalized.

The sheriff’s office said Wednesday that the deputies were justified. The Georgia Bureau of Investigations is investigating.

They kill us because we’re too stupid to quit spending our 1.6 trillion dollars in their white owned establishments.

So I guess he couldn’t shoot out the tires SMH. It’s a shame how some cops see a black man as a threat. The guy was just sleeping in his vehicle not bothering anyone. What has this world come to
