Woods, whose death has sparked protests and a federal review of the city’s police department, was shot twice in the head and six times in the back according to an analysis of the autopsy reported by CNN and its affiliate, KRON-4.
Five officers unloaded their firearms into Woods, a 26-year-old, black man. “The fact is he was shot in the back,” Burris said. “The significance to me is most of the officers who were shooting were not being threatened at the time they fired those weapons.”
The medical examiner’s report states that 27 bullet casings were recovered at the scene... watch video here at 'Filming Cops'.
Thomas, a mentally disabled homeless man, was beaten, tasered, suffocated and pistol whipped as he lay on a street corner being sat on by no less than six police officers during an incident in July 2011.
In what is undoubtedly one of if not the most disturbing police brutality videos ever, Thomas can be heard pleading for his father, moaning, “Daddy, daddy, they are killing me,” as officers prolong the assault... see video here at infowars.
The video is remarkable for its sheer level of brutality: Three police officers are seen holding down unarmed suspected drug dealer David Flores in a parking lot. After Flores ignores a command by police officer Charles Jones to release a sock from his mouth that he suspects contains narcotics, Jones delivers six consecutive punches to his face.
When Flores’s pregnant wife attempts to intervene, Jones trips her up and she falls, landing on her stomach... see video here at RT.
Flores ended up in the hospital, while Denver police originally said the display of force by the officer was reasonable under the circumstances.
Just one week after airing of the videotape, the Denver Police Department awarded Jones a promotion.
... There is certainly no justification. This is the type of things that you see in movies; these are the things that you don’t even believe are real. To be in America and to experience this type of thing taking place, where the officer jumped on top of the hood.
First of all, that is very reckless for an officer to jump on the hood of a car, and then fire as many shots into the window, stopping to reload. This leads me to believe that this was not an officer who was in fear of his life. This is an officer who is bloodthirsty, who wanted to kill someone. An officer who wanted to do whatever he could to live out some wild video game fantasy.
