8 Inglewood police officer fired about 47 times on the night they killed a homeless man. When the police arrived, the man reached out for his fake gun in his waistband when the cops fired off, he didn’t even raise the gun against them. Officers ordered the man to put his hands up but he refused so they shot him after feeling threatened by the pistol in the man’s waistband. The bullets were so out of control that they even hit a dog and a passing motorist. The homeless man was pronounced dead in the hospital.
A 40-year-old shop owner admits that he feels sorry for dialing 911 and calling the police when he saw the homeless man outside his store with a gun that he didn’t know was a toy. After the incident the City Council is suggesting a better training and recruiting from the law enforcement agencies until they see improvements. Michael Gennaco, chief attorney for the office, said the examination of the Police Department would cover training, supervision, policy and protocol.
