Investigator Says Cops Who Shot Man Sleeping In His Car 55 Times ‘acted reasonably’

The City of Vallejo concluded that the officer-involved shooting of 20-year-old Willie McCoy was “was reasonable and in line with contemporary training and police practices.”

On Monday, city officials announced that an investigation into the shooting that took place in February was concluded and the officers were not at fault in the shooting.

McCoy was shot 55 times by police while sleeping in his car outside a Taco Bell drive-thru. The family of Mr. McCoy believe the police “executed” him. Conversely, authorities claimed he was reaching for a gun and they fired in self-defense.

The investigation was conducted by David Blake who reviewed the six body cameras from the police officers at the scene.

Blake made the following statement: “Officers are not required to wait until a weapon is pointed at them to take the necessary steps to save their own lives,” He also mentioned that the officers gave verbal commands to McCoy for three minutes prior to the shooting.

So, this dude was shot 55 times while sleeping in his car and he was a threat? How so? If he was given commands chances are he was coming out of a sleepy haze and could not respond as quickly as they would have liked. This was cold blooded murder and yes, it was indeed an execution.

There’s no way he could be reaching for THE FIRE ARM THEY PLANTED ON HIM and be asleep at the same time. So I guess this young man was sleep reaching that’s kin to sleep walking. 55 times and never knew he was being murdered in his sleep. They’ll come to a terrible end too.

Yes of course it was an execution. That’s the main function of the police. To falsely accuse Blacks of crimes they didn’t commit. Then to falsely imprisoned and murder Blacks at will with apartheid racist impunity. These facts are historical and irrefutable. The police are confessing right here ! The police say ” this is reasonable and in line with contemporary training and police practices. The Black Community needs to retaliate with the same reasonable violent lethal practices.

Conclusion reached by persons investigating policemen shooting of innocent blacks and black suspects are laughable. Bias could not be clearer. Investors look for the lowest possible standards in ensuring that they clear white officers.

AJ June 13, 2019 at 5:40 pm

This is an absolutely horrific scenario that is being played out over and over and over again. The entire Blue Shield is nothing more than a modern day slave patrol! It’s disgusting!! Black people are under attack in Trumps Amerikkka.

Latisha Strong June 15, 2019 at 7:22 pm

It is incredibly unconscionable that after reviewing all the information ANYONE could say this was acceptable behavior by the police. 55 shots delivered to ONE human being should not be considered “reasonable” by an stretch of the imagination. Even if he woke up and reached for a gun there is no known man alive after even 25 gun shot wounds. What could have prompted the police to use that much force? They surely did not think that he could have survived let alone taken a shot at anyone. These police are becoming more and more hateful in the way they treat Blacks and obviously, to me anyway, our current political climate makes this type of hatred seem warranted and acceptable. IT IS NOT!

Daniel October 16, 2019 at 12:27 pm

I dont know about the rest of you but I’m tired and angry. We can either lay down and continue to be systematically executed or we can stand together and fight back! I rather die in a battle for righteousness than die at the hands of these modern day racist.

ATOAPEM June 30, 2019 at 12:56 pm

Good, nothing to complain about. Now our investigators should find that they didn’t and serve every last one of them justice. How. We all know blacks on the force. Find out who these officers were and dispense justice.

Harrison McCorkle July 1, 2019 at 2:28 pm

Ok, so shooting a person 55 times is legal. To these cops this is a joke and they will high five each other and snicker and laugh about this. To take someone’s life is no big deal to them and is a rite of passage. This police state is out of control.

Harrison McCorkle July 1, 2019 at 2:29 pm

Can’t watch the video. I would be sick to my stomach!

LaRusha Taylor Bey July 9, 2019 at 8:46 pm

GE God bless. That was an execution and they know this and not want to take full responsibility of their actions. Now if he was white he would of been taken to jail instead of being killed. 😈😈😈😈😈

Alanna September 4, 2019 at 9:17 pm

So Cops investigate cops, cops clear cops… Bulls#!t….
I honestly believe that from now on EVERY shooting that involves police should go to A Jury of 12 people to go over the evidence and WE The people should decide if was justifiable or not, WE The people should be able to decide if they get charged or not! They shouldn’t be allowed to investigate themselves

JP Maurice September 12, 2019 at 2:11 pm

Yes, We the people are after all the REAL ACTUAL AUTHORITY. Constitutionally we have the power. If there is no equal protection under the law (false criminal authority). Then it is the duty and responsibility of the people to shut down abolish said government. BURN THIS BITCH DOWN FROM SEA TO SHINING SEA!!! And build something proper and righteous over the ashes. We did it Haiti, we’re doing it in South Africa, WE can do it in Amerikkka !!! I’m telling Black Amerika , racist white coward bullies would rather drown in the sea , than fight us fair. They know in their racist heart’s that Blacks are genetically superior on every level. Hell ! Without Blacks in Amerikkka , neanderthals white cave monkeys would destroy themselves ! I’ve, wwI wwII. See I’m saying. The National Black Community needs to violently retaliate ! And those false authority white racist vermin swine will stop that apartheid bullshit. I promise you. I’ve learned that even criminally insane sociopaths , know what the fuck an ass whooping is. AND THEY DON’T WANT NONE !! BLACK PEOPLE RETALIATE WITH LEATHAL VIOLENCE AND EXTREME PREJUDICE !! They’ll stop the apartheid racist bullshit. WE THE PEOPLE MUST FIGHT BACK !!! RETAKE WHAT WAS STOLE FROM US !! AND MAKE whites PAY WHAT THEY OWE US !! BLACK LOVE BLACK UNITY BLACK POWER !!!

JAMES October 16, 2019 at 6:02 am

I live up the street from where this happened. It sounded like a shooting range or a war zone. I don’t see how shooting someone 55 times can be justified. He was shot 55 times just imagine how many shots were fired. One of the officers in this shooting was involved in another shooting. The officer murdered Ronell Foster because he said he was riding his bike in a unsafe way. Riding a bike unarmed he ended up dead. The police are killing these young black men out here and getting away with it. Please watch the video then see if you believe that he was a threat.

Tony Montana October 17, 2019 at 5:12 am

Just do what they do the end! Blacks you acted out of self defense too!! I bet they stop then we out number those white KKK crackers! This is not 1960! We got Constitutional Rights too!!!!

Paul Suddess October 17, 2019 at 5:41 am

If the man in the car was sleeping how did he point a gun at the cops? If the victim was sleeping how was he a threat to anyone? This report is suggesting the police have the right to riddle someone 55 times, regardless, of whether he is sleeping because he might be a threat even if no threat is discovered. I have heard of this type of execution and murder but did not expect it to be so rampant in this country. Every cop that put a bullet in this man should be fired, arrested, charged, convicted, and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Maybe then they will think twice before murdering their victims. This was not self defence. There was not even the illusion of self defence. This was premeditated murder and they got away with it because judges and prosecutors and investigators have been bribed to arrive at these irresponsible conclusions. Even the KKK, BLM, BLACK PANTHERS, AND ANTIFA, as bad as they are, have never become as deranged and degenerate as these cops in this case and many others. “Protect and Serve’ has become a joke and police are becoming viewed as marauding animals behind the protection of the badge. This is not the TV show. This is real life and the cops in this case went from protectors to murderers and should be locked up like any murderer.

Where I’m from they kill cops which I never did but they get caught in the hood at night and the goons stand in the bushes and open 🔥 on the whole vehicle without a trace but I’m just saying you have to reap what you sow in this world and fair is fair
