Warning Graphic Content: Wichita Police Department releases the body camera video of officer-involved shooting. Police say the man shot was a victim of swatting.
Video here. Enlarge it and watch very carefully. Note the cops are all across the street in cover behind vehicles. Watch the lower left hand of the video and note the muzzle of the M4 and muzzle blast.
When officers arrived at the scene, Finch opened the door for the officers. As police told him to put his hands up, Finch moved a hand toward the area of his waistband – a common place where guns are concealed. An officer, fearing the man was reaching for a gun, fired a single shot. Finch died a few minutes later at a hospital and was found to be unarmed, Livingston said.
And there it is, once again. Moved a hand toward the AREA of his waistband. I also note, that anytime I raise my hands, to any level, and drop my hands back down… guess where my hands are.
The cops in Wichita showed up at the house and shot an unarmed man who came to answer the door. The police, of course, claim that he “moved a hand toward the area of his waistband” as justification for shooting him.
So what if he did?
Let me remind you that:
Remember, even when innocent, any and all furtive movements, no matter how benign, even when cops don’t ACTUALLY see a weapon, can and will be used by cops to execute you.
Now, if you watched the linked video of the cop shooting an unarmed man… from across the street, because he “moved a hand toward the area of his waistband”, compare that video with drawing from concealed waistband carry:
The above is an actual reaching into your waistband to retrieve a gun. A huge difference from “moved a hand toward the area of his waistband”, isn’t it?
If you are a concealed carrier, and not cop, do not do what these cops do. Because you will go to prison.
Don’t tell me this cop wasn’t playing up “My authority”. The, “I think I’ll make him crawl like a dog authority.” The, “I’ll set him up for failure authority.” The, “One furtive movement authority.” The, “His pants are falling and he reached authority.”
