San Antonio Cop Mistakes Cell Phone For Gun And Kills Unarmed Black Man

A police officer is on administrative duty in San Antonio following a shooting on the north side of the city that left a man dead in an apartment complex parking lot Thursday evening. The man was identified as 36 year old Antoine Scott. He was wanted on 2 felony warrants for gun and drug possession, according to police.

Police officer John Lee was called in by an undercover detective who had been tracking Scott to make the arrest. Lee pulled up to Scott’s car just as he was getting out. The officer shouted to Scott to show him his hands, then fired 1 round into Scott’s torso.

Lee told investigators Scott spun around quickly and he thought he saw a gun in the man’s hand. The “gun” turned out to be Scott’s cell phone.

SAPD’s Chief William McManus said the shot came almost immediately. McManus also said video from the officer’s dash cam did not record the shooting because of the way the officer’s car was positioned. Officers in the precinct have not yet been given body cameras. There is audio of the incident according to Reuters.

If he was calling white people the Devil I think we can historically all agree 🤷🏾‍♀️🤷🏾‍♀️ These are simple facts. Every piece of land white people have touched they have murdered the indigenous there and stolen their land and resources, leaving famine and disease in their wake. This again is factual. Sounds like the devil to me. The police who serve to protect the property of white people fall into that category too.

Should The Police Control Their Own Body Camera Footage? https://t.co/8RGAKeu7PL

I was stopped by a police Jan. 9/2018 on Delta HWY/NB/Goodpasture. Gave me a ticket.

Officer Nate Pieske was interrogating & terrorizing me! I thought he was going to pull his gun on me!

Pieske asked me more than FIVE Times if my car was really mine? If the car I’m driving is mine? Who was the first owner of my car? where did I buy it? so many different way of questioning me if the car was mine or it was stolen!

More than Five Different questions regarding. If I’m actually the owner of my car Honda Accord 2008!

Then, Pieske calls another Police officer! I thought I was going to be handcuffed, arrested & thrown in Jail! http://registerguard.com/rg/news/local/36126284-75/white-supremacist-messages-alarm-southern-oregon-residents.html.csp

Pieske kept interrogating me checking my car back & forth, more than three or four times. He checked the Serial number on my dashboard and compared it with my documents more than THREE TIMES!

I was interrogated more than 25 minutes!

I’ve never had any speeding tickets! I was driving from Willagalispy to delta Hwy. Eugene, OR.
Officer Nate Pieske claimed I slowed down, because I saw him coming after me! It was more than a mile & a half.There is no way he can detected my speed limit in his Radar “Lidar”!

After his interrogations for more than 25 minutes and checking my car back & forth several times.

I told him I’ve never had a ticket. He was very condescending and responded by saying NO.

“You were stopped by a police in 2011! I had to correct him by saying, he didn’t give me a ticket.

It was another case of profiling Muslims students, who were in the car with me.

They had a head scarf. I war driving them to Portland to take English exam. When I was stopped by the Police! I was NOT speeding!

I was lost to find the Freeway in Springfield!

That officer asked me about, why my driving license plate # was blocked.

I told him because I ran for Public offices, and was stalked and ran over.

My attorney & I had to contact the DMV in Salem to block my license #. So no-one will follow me & find out my physical address.

I was driving 32 mile an hour for more than on miles. There is no way he could catch me with his radar: https://www.quora.com/How-accurate-is-a-police-radar-when-reading-a-cluster-of-cars

I went to court Feb.28/2018 for not pleading Guilty. To my surprise. Officer Nate Pieske who ticked me for false speeding, and was only profiling me. Pieske edited the video tape that was presented as evidence to the judge!! P.S:The Municipal Court Judge informed me that they are instructed to believe the Police over the victim!

If I were a black person, especially in the United States, I would go out of my way to make the police feel comfortable when they stop me. I’ve seen it time and again where the police feel apprehensive and they start shooting. I’ve seen some cases where I can’t believe they didn’t shoot, and other cases will they put themselves in a position so that they could shoot, ie. front of it accelerating car.

If this sub human John had the ability to read and comprehend, he would’ve realized I spoke specifically about this incident and the numerous ones that have occurred the same way. What is even more scary is that John probably patrols the streets of some city in America in his blue uniform all while taking home a hefty tax payer funded check paid for by working class people.

Smh John you most definitely are a racist but that’s neither here nor there people like you are funny to me. There are more innocent black men locked than whites. The reason some jails have more blacks than any other race is because they most definitely didn’t have the money to get a good lawyer to fight to get them a lesser sentence or as most of your rich white kids get, probation and a slap on the hand for getting caught. Now back to the story at hand… this is sad as heck shoot the guy who killed the 9 people at the church in South Carolina didn’t get shot and he actually held a gun up at officers… that is a trend… no matter what someone’s background may say it is NEVER ok for a “trained” officer to shoot because “they are scared” but yet don’t shoot when they are faced with the possibility of death…serve and protect… ha… who exactly are they serving to protect??? And bringing up black on black crime is stupid because shoot if that’s the case we should bring up how damn near every single serial killer has been white which would mean police should worry more about a white person being crazy and deranged than a black person… and yet statistics show differently

John you’re lucky there’s no simple way to track who you are. You’d lose your job, friends and family acig like this. You say we’re the ones that act like animals and look at you right now. You say history of violence? Maybe we forgot about let’s say, I don’t know, maybe the last 1000 years of European’s manifest destiny (also known as raping and pillaging). You say we’re in jails more, but forget there are more police in our neighborhoods. You act as if though this is a result of our violence, but it’s been that way since Jim Crow was intact and black on black crime was almost non existent. You can believe whatever you like John, but at the end of the day, we’re getting murdered by people like you all, whether you guys be police, school shooters, church-shooting serial killers, and or George Zimmerman ‘s because you all hate black people or as you do kindly used the word “niggers”. How quickly that spat out of your mouth is judtbhow quickly those bullets ring when you all deal with us “niggers”. Don’t be surprised one day if you become a John Doe, because all vengeance of the lord does not come after life!

How about y’all try doing there job where they have to make a split second decision that will cost the life of the suspect or themselves. They have no time to make these decisions but yet we have all the time in the world to try and destroy them. Cop or not if I came up on someone that was a suspicious person and they spun on me I would probably do the same thing. Color doesn’t matter. If you are told to put you hands up or freeze or whatever then just do as your told and you will be fine. I’m not a cop but I do carry and have been stopped plenty before and never shot because I do as I’m told.

As I read the comments it becomes obvious that there are people who come in here just to bait. They are ignorant, insensitive, and hoping that we act out as they do each and every day through their fear and ignorance. If killing them was a solution they would be dead. They are the bullies we teach our children not to behave like. And the only reason they may seem to be winning is that they have weapons so that they never have to fight fairly. History has taught us that they are insecure psychotics who are not ever going to stop being afraid enough to stop. So we either ignore and continue suing the heck out of them, or we get armed. If they can kill our children then an eye for an eye might be one thing to consider since all these cowards in uniforms do have people they will miss too.

First , no one has the right to disrespect anyone’s oppinion by calling them that disgusting word .

Second, I feel for this family , I do . It’s always the family that has to pick up the pieces of a lost one.

Third, this man had 2 felony warrants , guns and drugs. You get called to arrest him, and he turns quickly with something in his hand. Let me tell you , you made your choice in life to live right or wrong . We were taught right and wrong . Two felony warrants means, when he turned quickly to grab his phone , I would have fired my gun too . My life is more important as a law abiding citizen that someone who threatens families with their felonies. Mind you , his felonies came by his decision , not the officers. I’m going to go home to my family before I let a criminal shoot me.

Don’t call me racist or ignorant . Call me a realist . We know what happens when in life we make choices that will affect us for life. I’ve made some bad choices , but not the kind to be arrested . I came from a very poor family , but they taught us right from wrong . They taught us , every decision you make , will affect your future .
