    Chato,
    Wow! Thank you for sharing this. Awful, but important to serve as a witness to such things. Thank you for doing that.

    You need to get some of your story elements correct, though that does not make this any more tragic.There were 46 shots fired by the police, he was hit 11 times and 1 of the wounds was fatal.According to the report and witnesses Mr. Hall was threatening police with a knife and refused to put the knife down and made a move towards officers not shown in the video which seems to have caused the sudden outburst of shots.While Mr. Hall had known mental issues, he also had a long history of aggressive and threatening actions towards others.The police were not using him for target practice as you imply in this ‘cartoon’. It was a tragedy but not an intentful action.
