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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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. 😈😈😈😈😈

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

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 !!!
