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.

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. 😈😈😈😈😈
