What Happened To Dylan Noble?
BE WARNED THE VIDEO SHOWN BELOW IS DISTURBING
The U.S. Justice Department and the California Attorney General Kamala Harris are looking into the fatal shooting of Dylan Noble.
In the wake of two unarmed Black men being shot by the law, this incident happened. This was overshadowed by the terrorist attack in Dallas. The terrorist killed four officers after he get upset with the law kill unarmed Black men.
The nation is mourning the deaths of the officers alongside the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philadno Castile. Now we can add Dylan Noble to the list of men killed by the Fresno Police being unarmed.
The shooting happened last month but it was brought to major attention yesterday after someone posted the encounter on social media. The officers had body cameras on them. The police and district attorney won't release the video.
This was a traffic stop. The law was tipped about a man walking with a rifle around the afternoon of June 25. They observed a black pickup truck speeding as they searched the area. They pulled over the truck after a 1/2 mile. The truck pulled over at the Chevron gas station.
The officers pulled him out of his vehicle and ordered him to get on the ground. The cops claimed that he was saying "he wanted to die" and "he hated his life".
Dylan was lying on the ground as two officers with their guns drawn stand feet away from him. As the officers yell, "Keep your hands up" and other commands. Then one shot is fired.
Seconds later, a third officer arrives and then more shots. Noble screaming in pain saying "I've been shot".
The witness video doesn't show the moments of the fatal encounter. But the video in which he was shot was clear as day.
The officers defend their actions. Police chief Jerry Dyer said Dylan raised his shirt twice and had his left hand and used his right hand to reach under his shirt into his waistband. The officers feared for his life.
The body cameras will show what exactly what happened. They were standing 12 to 15 feet away.
The officers were not named at the time of the shooting. One of the officers had 20 years and the other had 17 years of experience on the beat.
Of course, he was a White male and it sparked the local racial agitators. Some of his friends and residents of Fresno came out in support and protest of the event. The "Justice for Dylan" was cheered by residents.
Some of the racial agitators there in attendance were wearing "WHITE LIVES MATTER" t-shirts and others were driving with the Confederate flag.
The use of lethal force in a two minute encounter has sparked another debate over trigger happy lawmen.
#BlackLivesMatter is not a group. It's a movement.
It calls for police reform, an end to military style policing, more training for officers, accountability for officers who fatally shoot unarmed citizens, harsher penalties for those who attack LGBT Americans and an end to profiling Black, Hispanic and Muslim Americans.
It's hated by the conservatives and police unions. They believe the rhetoric is anti-cop and anti-White.
Conservatives always try to blame the fatal shootings of police officers on #BlackLivesMatter.
World News Today send our condolences to Dylan Noble.
